    Fence me in!

    They want big jobs. Call back and tell them you need to have your newly rebuilt estate fenced in.
  3. Happy Birthday. I can’t wait for 69!

    Fence me in!

    Get in line. Everyone is busy. No one is around to talk to because they are busy taking someone else's money. I had to wait 2 weeks to get someone to talk to me to sell a new AC unit and new furnace. My needs are simple. Stock AC unit - stock furnace. No new duct work, wiring or refrigeration lines. The installation lead time was quoted at 7 to 10 days. The project was scheduled for 3 weeks from signing the order (3 hot muggy weeks I might add).
  5. Was that the genesis of her quote though? The reason I ask is basically growing up Dutch and having Dutch family it seems they put a high priority on work. Not so much what you do but how hard and how well you do it. Dutch take pride in immaculate homes, clean & orderly and pride in craftsmanship. They appreciate the work that goes into it. My family seemed to understand & appreciate jobs based around hard labor, construction, mechanics & such. When my mom would explain my job to other Dutch people she just said I had an “office job” which just didn’t resonate
  6. My contractor's financial person said there was some confusion: when I said I was going to replace more of the fence than State Farm was paying for, they thought I meant I would arrange the installation with the contractor after they removed the old fence. They would partially pay for the new fence. I've been phoning, entering info online, etc. with a bunch of local fence companies since late last week and gotten no return calls. I visited Long Fence, and the receptionist handed me a business card and said, "There's no one here to meet with you, so call this number and they'll get b

  8. 25 years ago I did some short term missionary work at a group foster home in Macon GA. The kids there were orphaned, typically from the inner-city and from across the country (relocation is difficult for a 4 or 6 or 10 year old). Most of the kids there (40 total , boys and girls) were psychology damaged by actions of their parents. A few of the kids I got to know watched one of their parents murder their other parent. Very sad doesn't even begin to describe it. The foster home was a way for them to be given a loving environment where they could get help and a chance at a better life.

    I understand but more detail is needed. You ever wonder why your sports writing career faltered at such a young age?
  10. That's execution score. I was just assigning the degree of difficulty.

    High enough scores to compete later in the championship round.
  12. The Russian judges gave me a #1 and #2.
  13. You wonder how these killers' minds work. It should have occurred to him that his sons will lead a difficult life without their parents and stepparent and the potential psychological problems are huge. Yet he inflicted that on them as well killing as the three adults and fetus involved. Reasoning and responsibility seem to be completely absent.
  14. I am being a horrible freak about my stove and home. The stove is completely cleaned everytime I use it. Like, wipe down the entire inside, every time I bake. When I fry and sautee, the top and grates are all wiped down. In the evening, I wipe down all the counters completely. This is how monsters live. You would think they would be messy, but we are quite clean.

    We need more detail to understand the real action here. Did you step outside the lines? Were your toes pointed? Was this in a tuck or pike position? Did you take any major or minor steps upon landing? What did the splash zone look like - smooth entry or under or over rotated? Did you fall off the apparatus? We need to know about deductions and penalties. Did you injure yourself? So many questions, so little time.
  16. This is a sad quote from Frank. “Arbeit macht frie” was emblazoned on the gates into work and concentration camps.
  17. Thanks for posting this SH. I'm certainly not an expert on forest management, but it seems to me there are so many variables involved that the arguments all involve a lot of guessing.
  18. I'm an Olympic addict. I've taken to assigning a degree of difficulty to my morning constitutional. Yesterday was a 6.0 Today more of a 4.5

  20. This makes perfect sense to me. I have known people who go to massive lengths to clean cookware like new after every use, I feel those people generally have horrible control-freak lives. It is cookware, not a showpiece. It is supposed to look like you use the crap out of it.
  21. I bet they weren't shrieking or shouting at the top of their lungs when they do the things they are supposed to do.

    New bed

    Happy endings all around! One of the better things about latex on a bed is that you can be far more acrobatic than you can on memory foam, which you just sink into and locks you in. This is much of the rationale to get latex, I think.
  23. Happy Birthday! Hope you have a Great Day!
