She had to leave her former job because of the cancer treatment.

Pay is 24K $ which is not princely but she can live on that sharing an apartment with her boyfriend and she gets summers off.

Mrs. V. and I look forward to not having to support her starting in September. ;)
Congratulations!!!!!!!!
Congrats. Employment or the strong possibility of employment is a good thing.

I'm waiting for my investigator to be assigned. It took a week for the offer letter.

Thinking good thoughts for Mrs V's speedy recovery with the new hip!

And I hope your daughter's new job is in a school as good as Forney HS, where Little D will be attending his freshman year this fall.

So I've kind of become a Twitter junkie lately. It's amazing how lost one can get on that media platform when you have trouble sleeping, lol. If anyone is interested, you can follow me, @ELK03inDallas. I only have 5 followers right now but I pretend I have more. And I get very excited with the occasional retweet or like! :dance:

Mrs.V. has gone into surgery. Will take about 3 hours until I can see her in the recovery room.

In which Canadian rapper B. Rich delivers the world's first Cease & Desist order in the form of a rap video. To Coca-Cola. (He trademarked a catch phrase, Coca-Cola used it in a promotion without licensing it from him first.)

His lawyer is prominently featured in the video. Best part: what he wants as a settlement from Coca-Cola.

Yes, I'm becoming addicted to Twitter. A tweet I wrote earlier today has been retweeted 6 times and I'm ecstatic!
I should probably be embarrassed about it, lol. But, hell, what else am I gonna to do at 3am when I can't sleep?
