Power nap: Sleeping on the job

This final note today, which, as you'll see, has a distinct 'keeping the workers happy' theme to it.

Next time you're feeling sleepy on the job -- not unusual around this time of year with the whole daylight savings time thing -- go ahead and consider a nap. USA Today points out a 20-minute nap can give a big boost to productivity. And that some companies are in fact setting up rooms just so you can grab a quick snooze.

And about what I said Friday -- no, I'm not leaving. Are you kidding?

Did get the big boss to agree to Beer Cart Friday, though.
