The 5th Annual Rinderle Door / Bushey Open -


Mike's son, Paul, pictured above, with the original Bushwhacker


Many of you know Mike Bushey. He was a service technician who was with us for 8 years, and passed away suddenly of a heart attack about 5 years ago. After his passing, we decided we wanted to do something in his honor, to remember him by. So, in the fall of that year, we held our first Rinderle Door / Bushey Open. Mike had 3 boys, and they are always invited to join, which makes it even more meaningful. We always have a blast, and this year was no different.


We do things a little differently at Rinderle.


The prize holes are not the typical. For example, we have the Time Trial Hole (object is to get your ball from the tee box to the hole in the fastest time possible by whatever means possible – the fastest clocked team wins), the Rolling Whole (you must use your putter the entire time – no other club can be used), the Launcher Hole (our version of the longest drive - balloon launcher situation), and some others.



The Launch Hole


We also have the Bushwhacker Hole. This is the Granddaddy. Every year, Brian Rinderle creates a Bushwhacker Custom Club out of door parts and accessories. They get pretty creative - one year, a club even had a fully functional LED warning light.

Our outing is always followed by a dinner at Bushy’s Pub in Muskego (where else?!) We are privileged to have known him, and glad to have remained good friends with the family.


Here’s to Mike!


EVERNOTE, a productivity tool for facility managers


Have you used it?

Have you been intrigued by it?

Have you wondered what the heck the fuss is all about?


In my humble opinion, Evernote is one of the latest and greatest tools for people like us. Busy, on the go, highly involved people with jobs that require us to wear many hats. We are always looking for ways to save us time and frustration. Information streams by us at lightning speed, and we need a way to capture it. The Evernote App is a tool that will do just that.


Think about how many times a day you have had an idea, a random thought, or a To-Do List item that arises. You are in the middle of talking with someone, in a meeting, at a training exercise or involved in a project. The idea or thought you had either gets forgotten, or possibly written down on a random scrap of paper - and lost!


Here’s where this can all change.

Download the Evernote app to your smartphone (from the Android Market or Apple App Store), or get it from the Evernote website. All you need is a user name and password. You can actually start using it right away.


My suggestion, before you dive in, is to set yourself up some stacks/folders. Think of all the different ideas you have throughout the week and the catagories of information you deal with frequently. Jot these down. Here are some suggestions:


  • Employee Notes (to keep “on the fly” notes about your team)
  • Productivity Ideas (ways to make your life and your team’s life easier/faster)
  • Sustainability Ideas
  • Product Manuals & Diagrams
  • Passwords and Access Codes (these can be encrypted and accessed with an additional password)
  • Vendor Contact Information (Rinderle Door [262.662.5200] would be a good one…hint, hint)
  • Action Items
  • Networking Groups (meeting notes)
  • Personal & Professional Goals


These are just a few suggestions that will help get you started. Of course, you can add to or delete from this list. They can be work and personal items. Anything you want to access easily…from your phone, tablet, computer, and from anywhere in the world via the web. It’s pretty incredible.


One of the best features:

When you take a picture of a handwritten note with your phone, on the go, and save it to your Evernote account, you can search for it later. Evernote recognizes your handwritten text. You don’t have to type it all in. Just use the search tool, type in a keyword, and wallah! There it is.



Again, just an awesome little tool. And it's free.


I hope this helps to get you started. There is a world of possibility, with this app. You can find third party apps that play very well with it, and also forums to help you navigate through it more easily and get the most out of it. I think you’ll be hooked.


Have fun with Evernote! If you are already using this and have some tips to share, please let me know.






Johns Hopkins Update - Article recommended in Rick's March 2012 Newsletter


Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins :

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer, it indicates the person has nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetics, but also to environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet to eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5 times/day and by including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, etc, and can cause damage to organs like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7.. Radiation, while destroying cancer cells, also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However, prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation, the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding them with the foods they needs to multiply.


A. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses, but only in very small small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color, a better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

B. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.

C. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little other meat, like chicken. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

D. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruit help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food, including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells, try to drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables, including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104° F (40° C).

E. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine content. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties. When drinking water, it is best to drink purified or filtered water to avoid known toxins and heavy metals often found in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from, or eating less meat, it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's own killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells... Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercise daily, and practice deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave..

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad, but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.
Please share this with your whole email list..........................

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your life.
