We tend to be a pretty compassionate bunch given the type of work we do and the organization we work for. Nearly all of us have had some personal devastation in the past few years so we are certainly empathetic.

    Minute 27 of conversation with the angry neighbor who didn't attend either public hearing...... of the rezoning that was already approved. I know they won't see this post because they have told me 5 times that they never saw the public notice as they don't have internet, or read the newspaper, or check their mail.... or have time to stop and read the HUGE YELLOW SIGN.

    Now I understand why you all have thousands of posts. Can we get totals not including the FAC?

    It's cool. I got it covered. I'll eat all of your fishes and post all your posts in FAC.

    Note to self: don't try to cook a full dinner when you are brain-dead from a fever and can't remember common words.

    Note to Cybs: RJ's in the hot tub and has his phone.

    Note to Cybs and anyone they know: had thousands of international texts on the kid's phone bill this month; he didn't make them, they don't even show up on his phone. Some scam out of Calgary Alberta, I found reports on similar phone numbers on Google. Area code 403 with a 714 prefix. My cell carrier has suspended those charges pending an investigation. I'm already sick, that almost gave me a heart attack.

    Considering how rare I post in non FAC world yeah only Hink will notice when he post pads his way ahead of my numbers!

    That is the only part of Lent that keeps me going

    As long as you use networking or planning jargon, you're good to go yep

    ZG ouch that is horrific

    Does anyone post on the weekends because its just me solo and I don't want to post to myself - maybe I'll come up with some non FAC material to get the entry level folks going - anything with the words "greater good" ought to work
