    Thanks. But an article that was posted this evening on our local rag's website quotes the gadfly as saying she plans to appeal to circuit court. I wonder if she realizes she'll have to hire a lawyer?

    Here we go again.

    A very keen observation, Horshack (BTW, Horshack is a very old and respected name meaning "the cattle are dying").

    I guess you all received and opened the Mods pm. My feelings are getting hurt.

    I hadn't thought of Horshack in, well, decades. How does he remember that?

    Networking fail: Asking me to join your network on LinkedIn when your firm is the one suing us for denying your cell tower request.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Seriously? Hahahaha!!

    Honestly, I would really be at a loss if this person is actually trying to network, or if s/he is just messing with you!

    Just for grins, ask your attorney if you should accept it.

    Why is it that code enforcement can ticket me every third day for trash but can't investigate a sewage spill from a neighboring property that's overflowing into the basement of one of mine?

    WHEREAS zman has been writing resolutions today like a champ

    WHEREAS these resolutions get done quicker if I construct them and forward them to legal for review

    WHEREAS zman wishes he could charges a $250/hr legal fee for said work

    WHEREAS zman is thirsty for a beer

    WHEREAS the word whereas has been over used today

    NOW THEREFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED the zman is burned out, but glad it is pay day

    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    The annual post-Thanksgiving onslaught of Amazon Prime deliveries (and other assorted packages) has begun!

    Sometimes it seems like the UPS guy is here every day.

    I heart Amazon Mom. They've consistently beaten pricing from anywhere else on nursery and baby items which has been great for us since we are on a budget and starting over.

    Sigh...

    Municipal 'millionaires'
    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion...TcSjryqSPVxR1J
    How’s that? Well, most dictionaries define a millionaire as someone with wealth (i.e., assets) of $1 million. By that definition, many New York teachers and the vast majority of police and firefighters are millionaires, because the “net present value” of their retirement benefits is well in excess of $1 million.
    I guess I get the argument... but when you say this:
    Few who don’t work for the government sector have comparable assets.
    Or this:
    There simply aren’t enough private-sector “millionaires” to support all the new public-sector millionaires being created every day.
    You lose all credibility to me. Come on people... we get paid less and have better retirements... we get it.
    A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. -Douglas Adams

    I hear Carl Reiner and Mort Sahl are playing Kutsher's, maybe it's time to book a room (but I gotta stop at the haberdashery first).

    Day started out with a bang...

    Vandals broke into one of my properties, stole some of the copper piping and stole the brass water shutoff valve where the water comes in from the street. There's three feet of water in the basement. It's awesome dealing with Newark PD at 10am.

    No but they did get a hot dog from Tony's Hot Dog Truck that's permanently parked across the street. So did my GC and plumber.

    *sigh* I have fallen out of love with my Canon printer. It's barely 13 months old, and worked great until a few months ago, when it tried to eat some mailing labels.

    I have run just about every maintenance operation multiple times, but it still leaves ink smudges. I can no longer print photos that don't look like abstract art.

    Once during a dove hunt my grandfather shot the sheriff. But he did not shoot the deputy.

    No serious injury, but he never heard the last of it.
