Yay! To enter to win here on my blog, please leave a comment below telling me about your Christmas cards! Are you done? How many did you make? Are they all the same? I&#39;d love to hear what your tradition is, and I know everyone will enjoy reading each others&#39; comments.My Christmas cards are done and in a box on my desk...I do not like the addressing part so I am procrastinating right now! I write a Christmas letter every year too! Good Luck. I will pull my random winner Sunday night and notify you by email on Monday!&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">If you&#39;ve visited my blog before, you know that I usually can&#39;t stop myself at one project... And today is no different. I am sharing a Christmas card first, and then some all-purpose general greeting cards to keep on hand in my studio. You can never have enough thank you cards or hello cards! Supply links are at the very bottom of my post.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">First up, I reaaalllllyyyyy wanted to use this <a href=\"http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?u=774560&amp;b=199868&amp;m=24698&amp;afftrack=&amp;urllink=www%2Esimonsaysstamp%2Ecom%2Fproduct%2FSimon%2DSays%2DStamp%2DFOLD%2DOVER%2DTREE%2DWafer%2DDie%2DSSSD111655%2DDiecember%2DSSSD111655%2F1435\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">cool Fold Over Tree Die!</a> It&#39;s the perfect size and scale for the front of a card and would also fit beautifully on a gift tag.

I realized that when it is priced by server or by processor, that it&#39;s a ripoff. When it is priced by data usage, it&#39;s a bargain. You are paying for the potential of being able to use 8 cores even when you are not using them. Admittedly this is rather easy to see if you have experience working in the cloud and then take a turn doing on-premise practices, but it seemed rather profound to me. Imagine, if this is not obvious to you, that you pay a &#0160;standard or premium license fee to your mobile phone carrier based upon whether you are using a brand new smartphone or an old one. Right. It makes no sense to pay money for anything but the minutes you use on the phone. Mobile phone billing is done right. You pay for minutes. All software could be that way, so that you&#39;re not paying for servers, but for functions that spring to life do your bidding, charge you a fractional penny and then die.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>This week my boss sent me a link to a guy named <strong>swardley</strong> who likes ducks. It turns out that this character is quite capable of blowing my tiny mind. He&#39;s done it twice already, and so now I have the burden of a speck of enlightenment. It is an enlightenment which is commensurate with my understanding of (Wladawsky-Berger 1999) n-tier computing and then (Vogels 2008) horizontal scaling. So since I&#39;ve been doing cloud for six years, I now understand what&#39;s happening next. God save us all.</p>\r\n<p>Tying software development to economics and cost accounting has long been the stuff of magic, SWAG and charlatans. At least that&#39;s what it seemed like for most of my career. But I think Simon Wardley&#0160;has the solution. He has outlined an ecosystem and a framework for understanding how one can iterate (captive) algorithms towards mutual value for the developers and the customers. He calls it FinDev.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Like most useful thinking on the progressive edge of IT, one must assume AWS. That is to say, very little of what exists in the world that is not part of AWS&#39;s ecosystem can be thought of as having great potential in the future of computing. AWS is beyond doing things very well, they are evolving at a monstrous pace and at enormous scale. As an aside, I asked some Agilists last night at El Torito why Amazon manages its businesses so well. He said it&#39;s because Amazon is a collection of relatively small businesses that work on a common billing system, and that&#39;s what keeps it simple to manage. They are not only eating, but profiting from their own dogfood, which is the fully meticulous tracking of compute resource costing, and now with Lambda, down to the function. All the hardware is a sunk cost. Cloud computing is a utility. What matters now is billing by the function. Simply assume the cloud. It&#39;s already done.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>So there is a scary aspect to this which is something we all should have been afraid of all the time. It is what happens to craft when things become industrialized. Your personal touch matters less in a market which is defined towards optimization, cost-cutting and efficiency. Nobody cares how you show off the horse, we&#39;re all driving cars now. Nobody cares about your budget system, we&#39;re all using SAP now. Nobody cares about your fat client, we&#39;re all using browsers now. What&#39;s coming is a COTS revolution in which your college professor optimized the Towers of Hanoi solver and now owns the moneyTicker on the algo. In a global library of cloud interoperable functions, the scope of what you get to work on gets narrower and narrower. The good news is that we are 20 years away from lockdown. The V8 of compute engine economies is invented. Say hello to the next 50 years. You Wankels don&#39;t stand a chance.&#0160;When I was an undergrad, I used to think of software as the same thing as law. There are lots and lots of lawyers but only a few legislators. The assumption was that the best lawyers at some point got to legislate and the rest just interpreted and borrowed citations for the benefit of those who never read the law.

I realized that when it is priced by server or by processor, that it&#39;s a ripoff. When it is priced by data usage, it&#39;s a bargain. You are paying for the potential of being able to use 8 cores even when you are not using them. Admittedly this is rather easy to see if you have experience working in the cloud and then take a turn doing on-premise practices, but it seemed rather profound to me. Imagine, if this is not obvious to you, that you pay a &#0160;standard or premium license fee to your mobile phone carrier based upon whether you are using a brand new smartphone or an old one. Right. It makes no sense to pay money for anything but the minutes you use on the phone. Mobile phone billing is done right. You pay for minutes. All software could be that way, so that you&#39;re not paying for servers, but for functions that spring to life do your bidding, charge you a fractional penny and then die.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>This week my boss sent me a link to a guy named <strong>swardley</strong> who likes ducks. It turns out that this character is quite capable of blowing my tiny mind. He&#39;s done it twice already, and so now I have the burden of a speck of enlightenment. It is an enlightenment which is commensurate with my understanding of (Wladawsky-Berger 1999) n-tier computing and then (Vogels 2008) horizontal scaling. So since I&#39;ve been doing cloud for six years, I now understand what&#39;s happening next. God save us all.</p>\r\n<p>Tying software development to economics and cost accounting has long been the stuff of magic, SWAG and charlatans. At least that&#39;s what it seemed like for most of my career. But I think Simon Wardley&#0160;has the solution. He has outlined an ecosystem and a framework for understanding how one can iterate (captive) algorithms towards mutual value for the developers and the customers. He calls it FinDev.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Like most useful thinking on the progressive edge of IT, one must assume AWS. That is to say, very little of what exists in the world that is not part of AWS&#39;s ecosystem can be thought of as having great potential in the future of computing. AWS is beyond doing things very well, they are evolving at a monstrous pace and at enormous scale. As an aside, I asked some Agilists last night at El Torito why Amazon manages its businesses so well. He said it&#39;s because Amazon is a collection of relatively small businesses that work on a common billing system, and that&#39;s what keeps it simple to manage. They are not only eating, but profiting from their own dogfood, which is the fully meticulous tracking of compute resource costing, and now with Lambda, down to the function. All the hardware is a sunk cost. Cloud computing is a utility. What matters now is billing by the function. Simply assume the cloud. It&#39;s already done.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>So there is a scary aspect to this which is something we all should have been afraid of all the time. It is what happens to craft when things become industrialized. Your personal touch matters less in a market which is defined towards optimization, cost-cutting and efficiency. Nobody cares how you show off the horse, we&#39;re all driving cars now. Nobody cares about your budget system, we&#39;re all using SAP now. Nobody cares about your fat client, we&#39;re all using browsers now. What&#39;s coming is a COTS revolution in which your college professor optimized the Towers of Hanoi solver and now owns the moneyTicker on the algo. In a global library of cloud interoperable functions, the scope of what you get to work on gets narrower and narrower. The good news is that we are 20 years away from lockdown. The V8 of compute engine economies is invented. Say hello to the next 50 years. You Wankels don&#39;t stand a chance.&#0160;When I was an undergrad, I used to think of software as the same thing as law. There are lots and lots of lawyers but only a few legislators. The assumption was that the best lawyers at some point got to legislate and the rest just interpreted and borrowed citations for the benefit of those who never read the law. I believe there will be some measure of <em>stare decisis</em> in the new FinDev ecosystem.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>So the future belongs to engineers who really know their customer&#39;s needs. The economy of FinDev provides value to developers and customers only to the extent that something can be built (at scale in the cloud) that customers want to use. When you charge by the use, that&#39;s a different business model than anything we&#39;ve seen. Chances are it will be disruptive because it will go after captive inefficiently spent money.

This is referring to healthy, robust babies <em>who are DYING at double the rate of other developed countries before their first birthday!</em></p>\r\n<p><em>...please pay attention:</em><br /><br />• Infants in those other countries receive less than 50% of the number of vaccines in their first year of life as compared to infants in the United States.<br /><br />• Infants born in other countries (Sweden, Norway, Japan, Finland, Switzerland, Denmark), who have a greatly increased probability of living past their first birthday, do NOT receive the Hepatitis B Vaccine.&#0160;<br /><br />• The HepB vaccine contains 225 micrograms of aluminum! That is nearly 10 times the amount allowed by the FDA to be given to ADULTS over a 24-hour period in IV medications.&#0160;<br /><br />(above data credited to the brilliant Marcella Piper-Terry, founder of VaxTruth.org)</p>\r\n<p>Why are we vaccinating American babies on the first day of life? WHY? Why are we vaccinating them again at 2 months with 8 doses of vaccines and again at 4 months and again at 6 months? WHY?<br /><br /></p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://bethevoice.typepad.com/.a/6a01a3fca9ba92970b01b7c6eb7a00970b-pi\"><img alt=\"W-vaccine injury awareness2\" src=\"http://bethevoice.typepad.com/.a/6a01a3fca9ba92970b01b7c6eb7a00970b-500wi\" title=\"W-vaccine injury awareness2\" /><br /><br /></a><br />OUR CHILDREN ARE RECEIVING 49 DOSES OF 15 VACCINES BEFORE KINDERGARTEN&#0160;<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$5:0\" />...beginning with the HepB vaccine on their FIRST day of life!<br />&#0160;<br />HEPATITIS B is mandated in MS for children to attend daycare and public or private school.<br />...it is a vaccine that protects against a sexually transmitted disease<br />…it is a vaccine that typically wears off in 10 years<br />…it is a vaccine whose package insert lists:</p>\r\n<p>&#0160; &#0160; •multiple sclerosis&#0160;<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$11:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •anaphylaxis<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$13:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •guilllain-barre syndrome<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$15:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •seizure<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$17:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •bell&#39;s palsy<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$19:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •encephalitis (swelling of the brain)<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$21:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •thrombocytopenia (ITP a chronic blood disorder)<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$23:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •eczema<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$25:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •arthritis<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$27:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •lupus<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$29:0\" />&#0160; &#0160; •elevated liver enzymes (hello jaundice)<br data-reactid=\".41.1:3:1:$comment10100327239437044_7035113:0.0.$right.0.$left.0.0.0:3.0.3.0.$end:0:$31:0\" />and more as adverse events!</p>\r\n<p>Vaccines have been ruled &quot;unavoidably unsafe&quot; yet vaccine manufacturers and doctors enjoy 100% liability immunity when a person/child is injured or killed.&#0160;<br /><br /><a href=\"http://bethevoice.typepad.com/.a/6a01a3fca9ba92970b01bb07909dfa970d-pi\"><img alt=\"W-vaccine ecard hepB\" src=\"http://bethevoice.typepad.com/.a/6a01a3fca9ba92970b01bb07909dfa970d-500wi\" title=\"W-vaccine ecard hepB\" /></a><br /><br /><br />Billion dollar pharmaceutical companies CANNOT BE SUED when one of the 25 people (reported to VAERS) since 2013 die from this mandated shot.

When these parents have another child, they simply desire to delay or omit a vaccine or vaccines that are responsible for often tragic outcomes in their older children.&#0160;<br /><br />Currently, the state of Mississippi&#39;s archaic, outdated vaccine law requires children first be vaccine injured before a parent can begin the uphill, long battle to secure said child from further damage.

If they grew quiet Alice would whistle and they’d start up again.</p>\r\n<p>She didn’t mind stirring them. Though she was aware that when birds sang in her head, threw their heads back and let go, they often noticed her thoughts were goosed.

Cahuzac occupait une place stratégique au sein du gouvernement», en charge notamment de traquer la fraude fiscale et d&#39;assurer l&#39;égalité de tous les citoyens face à l&#39;impôt. Il a «commis une violation d&#39;une rare singularité [des principes qu&#39;il était supposé défendre]. Sa faute pénale est d&#39;une exceptionnelle gravité, car elle est destructrice du lien social et traduit une perte totale des repères, une situation au caractère insoutenable». Il ne s&#39;agit pas pour le tribunal de «sanctionner le fait d&#39;avoir menti, mais de prendre en considération ce que cela révèle de la personnalité de Jérôme Cahuzac», ajoute le président avant d&#39;énoncer la sentence, assortie d&#39;une «indispensable» peine d&#39;inéligibilité.</span></p>",

Cahuzac occupait une place stratégique au sein du gouvernement», en charge notamment de traquer la fraude fiscale et d&#39;assurer l&#39;égalité de tous les citoyens face à l&#39;impôt. Il a «commis une violation d&#39;une rare singularité [des principes qu&#39;il était supposé défendre]. Sa faute pénale est d&#39;une exceptionnelle gravité, car elle est destructrice du lien social et traduit une perte totale des repères, une situation au caractère insoutenable».

Peut-être savez vous donc que Noël vient du latin &quot;Natalis&quot; qui veut dire Naissance. Alors je vais vous livrer un secret que vous voudrez bien transmettre à vos confrères qui peut-être nagent avec complaisance dans la même ignorance que vous. La naissance dont il est question est celle d&#39;un certain Jésus de Nazareth né il y a un peu plus de 2000 ans. je dis ça parce qu&#39;étant donné que vous n&#39;avez pas interdit les illuminations de Noël, je suppose que vous ignoriez ce détail. Voyez-vous, Noël n&#39;est pas l&#39;anniversaire de la naissance du Père Noel ( je suis désolé si je casse ici une croyance ancrée en vous ) mais bien celle de ce Jésus. Interdire une crèche sans interdire toute manifestation publique de cette fête est aussi stupide que si vous autorisiez la fête de l&#39;andouillette tout en interdisant la consommation d&#39;andouillette le jour de la fête de l&#39;andouillette.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est ce qu&#39;on appelle une tradition. Et ne me faites pas croire, Monsieur le Tribunal, que le principe de la tradition vous est étranger. Sinon comment expliquer que les magistrats exercent leur métier dans un costume aussi ridicule si ce n&#39;est parce qu&#39;il est le fruit d&#39;une tradition ?</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">Vous êtes un briseur de rêves Monsieur, vous êtes un étouffeur de sens. La crèche c&#39;est Noël et Noël c&#39;est la crèche. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est aussi l&#39;histoire d&#39;une famille qui faute de droit opposable au logement est venue se réfugier dans une étable. C&#39;est un signe d&#39;espoir pour tous les sans abri. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est aussi un roi arabe et un autre africain qui viennent visiter un juif. C&#39;est un signe d&#39;espérance et de paix en ces temps de choc de civilisations, de conflit au Moyen Orient et de crainte de &quot; l&#39; autre &quot; attisée par des attentats horribles. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est aussi des éleveurs criant de joie et chantant dans une nuit de décembre. Connaissez vous beaucoup d&#39;agriculteurs qui rigolent en cette période de crise ? </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est un bœuf, symbole de la condition laborieuse de l&#39;homme. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">Enfin, la crèche, c&#39;est un âne, même si une rumeur court disant que cet âne a quitté la crèche en 2014 pour rejoindre le Tribunal administratif de Nantes et ne semble pas en être revenu.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">Malgré le fait que vous allez sans doute, par souci de cohérence, vous rendre à votre travail le 25 décembre, je vous prie de croire, Monsieur le Tribunal, à l&#39;expression de mes souhaits de bon et joyeux Noël. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">Jean-Pierre Santon -- Saint-Rémy-de-Provence</span></p>",

Peut-être savez vous donc que Noël vient du latin &quot;Natalis&quot; qui veut dire Naissance. Alors je vais vous livrer un secret que vous voudrez bien transmettre à vos confrères qui peut-être nagent avec complaisance dans la même ignorance que vous. La naissance dont il est question est celle d&#39;un certain Jésus de Nazareth né il y a un peu plus de 2000 ans. je dis ça parce qu&#39;étant donné que vous n&#39;avez pas interdit les illuminations de Noël, je suppose que vous ignoriez ce détail. Voyez-vous, Noël n&#39;est pas l&#39;anniversaire de la naissance du Père Noel ( je suis désolé si je casse ici une croyance ancrée en vous ) mais bien celle de ce Jésus. Interdire une crèche sans interdire toute manifestation publique de cette fête est aussi stupide que si vous autorisiez la fête de l&#39;andouillette tout en interdisant la consommation d&#39;andouillette le jour de la fête de l&#39;andouillette.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est ce qu&#39;on appelle une tradition. Et ne me faites pas croire, Monsieur le Tribunal, que le principe de la tradition vous est étranger. Sinon comment expliquer que les magistrats exercent leur métier dans un costume aussi ridicule si ce n&#39;est parce qu&#39;il est le fruit d&#39;une tradition ?</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">Vous êtes un briseur de rêves Monsieur, vous êtes un étouffeur de sens. La crèche c&#39;est Noël et Noël c&#39;est la crèche. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est aussi l&#39;histoire d&#39;une famille qui faute de droit opposable au logement est venue se réfugier dans une étable. C&#39;est un signe d&#39;espoir pour tous les sans abri. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est aussi un roi arabe et un autre africain qui viennent visiter un juif. C&#39;est un signe d&#39;espérance et de paix en ces temps de choc de civilisations, de conflit au Moyen Orient et de crainte de &quot; l&#39; autre &quot; attisée par des attentats horribles. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est aussi des éleveurs criant de joie et chantant dans une nuit de décembre. Connaissez vous beaucoup d&#39;agriculteurs qui rigolent en cette période de crise ? </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">La crèche c&#39;est un bœuf, symbole de la condition laborieuse de l&#39;homme. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">Enfin, la crèche, c&#39;est un âne, même si une rumeur court disant que cet âne a quitté la crèche en 2014 pour rejoindre le Tribunal administratif de Nantes et ne semble pas en être revenu.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">Malgré le fait que vous allez sans doute, par souci de cohérence, vous rendre à votre travail le 25 décembre, je vous prie de croire, Monsieur le Tribunal, à l&#39;expression de mes souhaits de bon et joyeux Noël. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">Jean-Pierre Santon -- Saint-Rémy-de-Provence</span></p>",

I&#39;ve felt what I think to be the healthy balance of that all along the way in our mere 16 years of parenting thus far, but am feeling it strongly and differently at this very moment in time. We bought our eldest, Calvin, a truck - a fabulous beater of an old thing (as one&#39;s first car should be, my husband deeply believes which I equate to a rare sentiment of <em>&#39;we suffered and survived and so shall they!&quot;</em> from him) - so that he could have the independence due a nearly sixteen-year-old boy (and maybe also so that we can do a little less shuttling ourselves). But as excited as I am for him to have that freedom, which I trust and know he&#39;ll use wisely, I also mourn the loss of all that time we spend together talking and connecting in the front seat of a car. At the same time as we prepare for that new phase, I just this week purchased his ticket and made final arrangements for his solo journey to France. He&#39;ll spend a good part of his spring semester on exchange there. After so much talk and preparation for this adventure, I felt nothing but joy and excitement for him when I announced the dates had been chosen and the tickets purchased. We cheered together. And then, after a moment, I quietly remembered to myself just how much I&#39;m going to miss him.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">Yesterday, Ezra and I boarded a plane for our own tiny little adventure on the West Coast, where we&#39;ll be doing just a tiny bit of work, but mostly visiting with a friend. I couldn&#39;t imagine coming to California without him, and so he came along - the one who has talked about living in San Francisco since before he could really say the name (and we still don&#39;t know where it came from), the one who writes scripts by night and improvs and acts by day whenever possible, and fits some music making in between that. As we flew over the city, before we had even landed in Los Angeles, he said, <em>&quot;I could live here...&quot;</em> I know you could, honey. And you just might someday. And how exciting will that be, I thought! And then, the familiar feeling post-joy, of knowing just how much I would - and will someday - miss him.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">Ah, the bittersweetness of it all! I am feeling it truly and deeply at this moment in life. And the only way I know how to channel those feelings is to direct them into the right here and now with what is in front of me. And for today, that means a young guy who is eager to see a city, a boy who has his whole world and life yet still in front of him. And how lucky am I that I get to be here this day with him? A lucky Mama indeed. With ever fiber of my being, I intend to be here with him.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">(And the ducks?

Last minute baking left the kitchen warm and aromatic. Mom would lay out a feast on the table for us to nosh on, and we &quot;pieced&quot; our way through the evening of joy. Freshly baked breads, cakes, cookies, and candies&#0160; are among my favorite childhood memories.</p>\r\n<p>Every year mom made each one of u (4 girls!) a new flannel nightgown, which we were allowed to open on Christmas Eve.

Overseen by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kayode Egbetokun, the commandant of the PTS, the training school engages in improperly documented activities that bring a financial windfall to a few officers.&nbsp;</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Mandated to train civilians as complementary law enforcement officers in Nigeria, the PTS runs two major programs, the recruit course and the refresher course. The recruit course is an entry training level training while the refresher course is the promotional training for graduates who had gone through the recruit course and want to attain the rank of an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP). Civilians who complete the training are tagged Supernumerary Police Officers (SPY), and they are often employed by private individuals or organizations as security guards or drivers.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>In 2015, Mr. Egbetokun, who once served as the Chief Security Officer to former Governor Bola Tinubu, became the school’s commandant. Our investigation showed that, since assuming command of the school, Mr. Egbetokun had instituted and completed eight batches of recruit courses and three batches of refresher course without approval from the police headquarters in Abuja. Consequently, at least four hundred and forty trainees had graduated from the refresher course without receiving decoration. This is because the trainees’ batches were never approved hence their names were not sent to the headquarters for authorization to decorate them.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Our investigators learned that an unapproved batch of two hundred students was currently running the refresher course. Several sources, including police officers and trainees, told our investigator that the students had been compelled to pay an extra twenty thousand naira each. The sources said this extra charge would be used to lobby officers at the police headquarters in Abuja to authorize the decoration of the trainees.&nbsp;</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Some of our sources questioned how Mr. Egbetokun would get the approval to decorate the students when he did not get authorization to run the course in the first instance.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>A source told SaharaReporters that the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, upon his appointment, informed&nbsp;Mr. Egbetokun that he would no longer approve the PTS’s recruit course. Despite this warning, Mr. Egbetokun continued to roll out batches from the recruit course without approval.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>“Many of the students have been coming to school to know when they will be decorated, but they are always told to remain patient,” one police source disclosed.&nbsp;</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>The Scam behind the Scheme</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>In order to undergo the recruit course, each trainee pays one hundred thousand naira as registration fee and forty-eight thousand naira for training kits. Also, each student enrolled in the refresher course pays one hundred and thirty-six thousand naira as registration fee and forty-eight thousand naira for kits. Often, the trainees’ employers pay the cost of training. Our correspondent learned that police headquarters, Abuja had fixed a registration fee of one hundred and twenty-six thousand naira for the refresher course, out of which PTS is supposed to deduct the running cost for the course and remit the balance. However, our investigation revealed that the training school consistently charged above the stipulated fee.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Two senior police sources in Lagos and Abuja told SaharaReporters that commandant Egbetokun has not remitted a single naira for the twelve batches of recruit and refresher courses he had ran. At the time of filing this report, SaharaReporters had not confirmed the number of people who had gone through the recruit course.&nbsp;</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>However, our investigation showed that more than one hundred and fifty million naira had been realized from registration fee and training kits for refresher trainees. Our sources said all that money remained unaccounted for.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Our correspondent also found that students were apparently overcharged for training kits. As a rule, each recruit is supposed to receive a pair of shoes, a pair of white socks, a white T-shirt and a pair of shorts. Our investigation found that PTS issued cheap, low quality shoes to the students. At Balogun market on Lagos Island, our correspondent found the exact pair of shoes issued to trainees on sale for N5, 500, socks at N200, T-shirts, which come in a pack of three, at N1, 500, and a pair of white shorts at N700. Added up, the gear issued to trainees would cost about N7, 900. Yet, PTS charges each trainee forty-eight thousand naira for the gear.&nbsp;</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Bypassing Buhari’s TSA</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Shortly after coming to office, President Muhammadu Buhari mandated the implementation of the Treasury Single Account (TSA), a policy that requires all government bodies and parastatals to deposit revenues at one Central Bank account.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Our investigation revealed that PTS had been flagrantly violating the TSA policy. The fees charged by the school are paid into the NFA Micro Finance Bank Plc., a police community bank. One Mr. Dada Idowu, a traffic warden, and Mr. Egbetokun act as the signatories to the account.&nbsp;</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Several sources identified Mr. Idowu as a key member of an insider group used by Commandant Egbetokun to perpetuate his illicit financial activities.&nbsp;</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Companies that enlist their employees for the training program are directed to pay into the microfinance bank while individuals are made to pay to the officer who recommended them for the training. The officers in turn remit the payment to Mr. Idowu.&nbsp;</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>SaharaReporters also learnt that Mr. Idowu plays a role in the procurement of the training kits. “He is the person who supplies the school with the training kit and the ceremonial wears given to the students at the completion of their program,” one source said. <span class=\"ds-1col file file-image file-image-jpeg view-mode-embedded  centered clearfix block-story-object block-story-object-resource block-story-object-resource-image\"> <span class=\"block-story-object-asset\"><img class=\"media-element file-embedded\" src=\"http://saharareporters.com/sites/default/files/styles/normal_medium/public/photo_images/Jan/POLICE%20COLLEGE%204.jpg?itok=dO_8idI2\" alt=\"\" /></span><span class=\"block-story-object-content\"><span class=\"block-story-object-content-header\"><span class=\"block-story-object-content-header-description\">Former President Goodluck Jonathan at the Police college </span></span> </span> </span></strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>How the cabal alters nominal roll</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>A police source in the college confirmed to SaharaReporters that the usual duration an officer stays in the college was two to three years, after which the officer is reassigned to another division.&nbsp;The source added that some members of the inside ring at the school had spent sixteen years in the division without transfer. “They do this by altering the date they were posted to the division on the staff nominal roll, each time there is a call for it,” said the source.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Our investigation revealed that Mr. Idowu had been in the division for more than sixteen years.
