From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

No worries, though—my name is Lederhosen Pug, and I know the way (知道). 

And when I trot to the border of our friends in the Czech Republic, I have to cross through some pretty formidable forests
These aren't just a little copse off in the countryside, people. These are big, thick, and old. It may not quite be Heart of Darkness dense, but they are impressive (and a little bit scary, even for a tough little Bavarian pug like me).

On our side, we call it the Bavarian Forest. Over across the border, it's the Bohemian Forest. All I know is that even the bark beetle (which has done a devastating job on the beautiful territory) can't eat away the deep, secluded wonders of these forests. 

Yes, the Black Forest over to the southeast is something special, but Grandma Pug used to tell me stories about strange beings in the forest that would make the Brothers Grimm run for cover.

I stick to the main roads. I know the way.

Pug Wary; Pug Sensible (Pug Scared).
