I begin with Evil Bank 2 on April 29. They finally got the ducks in a row. :)

They are going to pay me more than I asked for. Double Bonus!
What a great start to spring!

Re: Fire!

$700 million could do a lot of good for a lot of people. Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, house the homeless, etc. That's all I'll say. That $700 million is not going to be buried in a hole in the ground. Instead it is going to be a major boost to the economy because it will be paying the salarie...

Big question will be do they rebuild it using 12th century technology or 21st century technology.
I would hope that they evaluate where current technology makes more sense, but use facades, etc. to mask those updates, making it appear to be original as much as possible.

I know. This is getting off topic. I don't think that there's anyone who is not horrified by what has happened at the hands of some Catholic clergy. I am appalled at how atrocities were handled. That said... the Catholic Church has millions of fine believers and has had hundreds of thousands of dedi...

Re: Weather Alerts

My sister likes to make calls to us siblings while out on her daily walks. She called me today and, when asked about the weather in Atlanta, reported that it was about 70° and, while there were some dark clouds, they weren't supposed to get any rain. About 15 minutes later she remarked that the clou...

One of the offal weather services is calling for 5 - 8 inches of white crap with high winds on Thursday. What do thy think this is, the second coming of January?
It’s obviously because I’m having my summer tires put back on my car on Monday.
I changed mine last Saturday. :bag:

Since my SIL is quite overweight and has had both knees replaced, her son there is insisting that she buy a place with no stairs. I think that makes a lot of sense.
