Trying to talk myself out of moving my desk solo. The thing is quite heavy, even emptied out, so the sensible thing to do would be to wait for DH to be up to help, but I really want to rearrange that part of the room!

I decided rather than procrastinate I would do my laundry so I can maybe put together my early Christmas present and commence rearranging my room to fit it.

Must be in the air Seanette.

Unless my unemployment gets extended Christmas will be mostly small and/or homemade gifts. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I'd just hope for more time to make things.

DH hates rearrangements, so declined to help. I managed OK (explained to him that I was NOT going to wait until he was at work because I thought it a good idea to have him around if I did something like drop the desk on my foot).

I really had cold feet, and when I looked at my feet there was chicken poop on one of my shoes!! LOL

I have chickens, and I let them out of the coop in the morning. It's been mighty dark in the morning now, I didn't see that particular landmine.

On another note, I'll be reporting to WV next Monday. I've been assigned to a new project for the winter. A stabilizer tower for refining natural gas is being erected south of Wheeling WV. I'll be testing soil compaction with a Troxler Nuclear densometer. One of these:


I'm going back to Banlandia.

At least I'll get to hang with TS more often.

Black Friday and so far I have not participated in the sadness of what has become a tradition of inhuman behavior for saving a dollar or two off of a product that should be sold at the price offered all the time. I am however thankful that at least the day before this madness of mankind occurs that we show thanks and gratitude for something.

This is my favorite time of the year. Please lets keep the spirit alive and not the worldly traditions that have corrupted it. Peace to all mankind (and womankind). Remember give from the heart and not from a discount at some retail store.

I agree. What I find ironic locally, is the metrop passed an ordinance forbidding a private citizen from feeding a homeless more than one item and more than one peerson without paying for a permit or if youve prepared the food in a non-regulated kitchen.

Theyve added some very costly fees and charges along with types of outrageously priced "restaurant-quality" equipment that must be installed in your home in order to "qualify" to feed another human in need.

Do you ever wonder how prior generations survived without all the "protection" we now get from various unelected, unaccountable regulatory bodies? I certainly do.

Probably something that started from people not wanting a homeless shelter/soup kitchen in their neighborhood. Honestly, it's understandable, property values and all that. It's the NIMBY syndrome. (Not In My Back Yard)

Yes everyone feels compassion for the homeless until they camp out in your back yard

The prob I see with it is 1. Its a revenue venerator for the city, 2. The city cares less for a genuine homeless now, so why do they care about a hungry family on fhe sfreet's "health"? 3. Why arent they going after "Lil Johnny's L3munade Stand"?

Theres families anf small groups that tried to continue bringing the food to the ones ln the street "before and after" the once a year deed. There were many who couldnt get to these annual occassions and the rest of the year, starve.

Bringing a bag lunch or wrapped dinner to pockets of homeless was doing some good ..now you have to pay $$$$ just to help another human in need

sounds like a money scheme to me. The city should be ashamed of themselves profiting off of those who are less fortunate.

oh and they are hitting the lemonade stands

The Battle Against Lemonade Stand Crackdowns - Business - The Atlantic Wire

is just one article of this "unacceptable" behavior.

This is so sad. You'd think members of a city council would opposena lot of these actions. Personally I feel that these new regulations locally will contribute to the increasing crime rate. I mean, when someone is desparate, they do things. It might not be right, but they will steal or break in or rob to feed themselves. Then local city jails have to pay for their lodging and nourishments.
