    1987 – Korea, The Dinner, You Can’t Make This Up.

    Before I continue with my search for a manufacturing resource I must tell you of one time I went to South Korea.  As I mentioned before I went many times, more than five or six times in two years.  My story is about my first business trip.  What a trip. By the time I made my first trip to Seoul, the Samsung rep had visited me a couple of times.  He could speak enough English to easily communicate and we had established a good relationship.  When I went, he advised me to fly first class because...

    1984 – MDE and Policy

    Editor’s Comment: Back in 1984 I started my second consulting firm in my life. This is a snippet and I will fill in more later. 1984 I opened an office in Torrance CA because I didn’t want to work out of my home as I did with Production Data Systems in the late 60’s. Using an extra bedroom as an office proved to lead towards more distraction than work. I also hired my secretary from the Hughes Tool Company days, Barbara. She had been working as an office manager for the past fifteen or...

    1942 – 49 The Early Formative Years Part One

    C. H. Diaz At age nine I started working at the El Indio tortilla factory on Broadway and 92nd Street in Los Angeles. I worked every weekday morning from 6:00 AM until about 8:30 AM just before school. My grandmother got me the job because she shopped there and knew Oscar the owner. My job was to stack the tortillas in one dozen stacks as they came off the corn tortilla making machine.  As I would pick the steaming tortilla off the little conveyor belt it was really easy to puncture the tortilla...

    1937 – 1946 WWII and A Broken Home is Not That Bad

    There are just a few things I remember back as far as when I was four years old. First, I remember listening to President Roosevelt announcing the attack on Pearl Harbor.  It was December 8th when he spoke on the radio and I can remember it as though it was yesterday. I was with my mom, my aunt Helen and grandma.  They were all upset and I was confused as to why.  But I do remember his voice and to this day when I see a video clip of him announcing the attack I can close my eyes and see us all...

    1923 – 1937 The Beginning of An American Mexican Family

    According to what my mom told me, my American family started when they came to the United States from Mexico around 1923.  They came as legal immigrants and worked picking mostly peaches somewhere outside of Los Angeles.  The family consisted of my Grandfather, (who I never met), my grandmother Concha, Uncles Pancho and Danny, my aunt Beatrice and of course my mom Elisa. I don’t know if they went back and forth to Mexico but my mother Elisa did attend Manchester Avenue Elementary School which...

    1957 – 58 Flying In South Dakota

    While I’m at it I’ll mention a few things about flying in South Dakota. I got my license in a Piper J-3 Cub. I had soloed in nine hours after making thee of the best landings ever. After the third landing my instructor told me to make it a full stop. I taxied off the active runway and and he told me to stop in front of the terminal.  As soon as I stopped he started getting out of the plane and I asked, “Where are you going?” He replied with, “You’re ready to go, you’re ready to solo.”...

    Preface to The Top Ten Steps To Ship On Time

    Editor’s Comment: Years ago I started writing a book defining how to ship on time. It;s rather lengthy and it was never published. I did use what I wrote to build to separate consulkting company’s into multi million dollar business’s Author’s Preface  C H Diaz 1980’s In the past twenty four hours, every person who works with or for a manufacturing company has probably been involved with finding out why something didn’t ship on time.  It doesn’t matter what...

    1949 – 1952 Junior High School Years, Part 1

      Bret Harte Junior High School, now called middle school, was about three miles west south west of my home on 89th.  My first day in junior high school was like dying and going to heaven.  Because I had skipped the A5 I was only eleven years five months old when I started in the B7 and there were girls there who were as old as fifteen in the ninth grade. Boob heaven, Woweeee! The main guys I hung out with were Jimmy, Roger and me.  There were two or three others who would join up with us now...

    1955 to 1958 Marriage, Flying and Learning

      Editor’s Comment: In the story of my life I was never going to write about my marriage, but as I have posted in the last two weeks I have come to understand that I have to talk about them because they were a part of my life. So here it is the way I saw it. Ellsworth AFB The night I arrived in Rapid City there were a bunch of people, off duty Airmen, who were leaving a nearby bar. The bar had just closed and these guys were really drunk and acting very drunk. The bar had waitresses that were...

    1955 – 1955, Air Force – Basic Training and Tech School

    Editor’s Comment: What you are about to read may be a bit disturbing, but it was a part of my life. This was before Martin Luther King and any civil rights laws. I would especially appreciate any comment, good or bad, about what I’ve chronicled in this part of MY Life.  It is what it is. Parks AFB – Basic Training One day, (Late December 1954), I read an article in the newspaper that the Korean War G.I. Bill was going to end January 30th, 1955. I knew that would be my only chance for...
