Re: Jobs

Well now... I've had a development. I keep a watch on Evil Bank 2's job board and apply on occasion for a job that I am qualified for. Most of the time I'm bypassed, or don't make the first cut (HR screening call). One job poofed when they decided to not fill it right now. So, I applied for the oddl...

Re: Midterms and the Economy - Paging JPC - Dow Plummets 800 Points (Now 1300)

JPC - May I say thank you for explaining all of this stuff in plain English? Even I, a total ignoramus about markets and economics (beyond the very lowest basics), can understand when you explain it like this. :)

Thank you. :) :thumbs:

Re: North Dakota US Senate 2018

Having grown up, lived, and voted in North Dakota before my escape, I can confirm that all you need is to show up at the polling place in your neighborhood to vote.

I'm so sorry KXG. I hope everything works out for you. I wonder why those dogs weren't on a leash or in a fenced yard. Why do animals humans let their pets run free?

What kind of sewing machine is recommended? I don't need anything that will do embroidery. I just need a good machine that will last awhile. I'm more into quality of stitching over quantity of stitches. :)

Best nights sleep in weeks.

She will retaliate at done point, because she has the emotional maturity of a kumquat. But we have a camera pointed at the front yard so should be able to catch anything she tries.

Stinking choices she makes.
Is there any point in letting the court know how she vandalized the place before she left, dumping a full cat box on thefloor?
I don't know. We can ask the bailiff tomorrow and see what he says.
