    Wait... is this random? or a 1st world problem?
    It will save on healthcare costs... I see that as an investment, not an expense

    I just read that the average age of the Rolling Stones is higher than the average age of the US Supreme Court.

    Congratulations! You have successfully passed the Independent Study Course "IS-00328" entitled "Plan Review for Local Mitigation Plans ".
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I'm curious, has anyone here ever shot a man in Reno just to watch him die?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I did on April 26, 1992... there was a riot on the street, tell me, where were you?

    He was an ornery cuss, to be sure.

    Between these 48-50 hour work weeks... helping my wife's store, and being hounded every waking minute by an angry toddler to watch Thomas the Train's Day of the Diesel, I would probably get to SS sometime after president's day

    So how many of us will that make it on the central coast? There's you and me, but then I guess we're on different central coasts, aren't we?

    Does your wife have a website up yet for people to shop from? Happy to point the grandparents in her direction.

    BTW I have no idea if you remember this conversation, but we decided not to use GPants and went with Thirsties with prefolds and also with Grovia. The prefolds rule.

    Random 1. Checking in using my early-birthday Samsung Chromebook. So far, feels pretty good.

    Random 2. The contractor left a few minutes ago. He'll be doing some repairs around the house to maintain the insect contract warranty and a few little improvements that are beyond my skill sets.

    Random 3. Already posted on the local rag's web site, I'll be getting plenty of ink in tomorrow's paper. Hey, it was only just over 1,000 acres we changed the comp plan designation and rezoning. What's the problem?

    okay kiddies -

    I sent out the Secret Santa assignments - remember keep it between 10 to 20 bucks and get it there ASAP but I won't start harassing you until the 26th of December with the finality on Epiphany!

    Have fun with it - I enjoyed reading your responses to the questions! The winning response gets a surprise present from me so look for it...

    PM me with questions

    and let me know immediately if your inbox is empty - I really did pull names out of a hat to keep it random but I hope I didn't screw up

    Yes, she does. I won't shamefully plug on here or anything
