Just like many of you, I enjoy the occasional learning opportunity.  Today in a conference room in the bowels of MNDOT's St. Cloud office I had the time of my life learning and I quote "the Inspection and Contract Administration for MNDOT Landscape Projects." If you like red tape and bureaucracy today was like having pancakes and bacon brought to you in bed.  I did learn a lot, all the speakers were knowledgeable and fun to listen to.  It's all part of a certification process that you need in order to bid on jobs for MNDOT.  They did have tasty sandwiches and Diet Cokes for lunch so I can't complain. Plus I got a really cool binder!
