• Looking forward to the salon! We need the truth to be told in whatever way gets it out to the masses and it sounds like it has if Amazon is sold out.

    These types of things come about because homeowner/condo associations are not-for-profit businesses that are run by elected board members (who are volunteers that don’t get paid for their service). Smart boards take into account what the members want and act accordingly, but others end up with board members who have personal agendas that may not include or benefit their neighbors. A very good reason to actually volunteer to serve on the board!

    Mark Pearlstein – the advisor in the Tribune link – was one of the original attorneys who wrote the condo laws back in the day. He was well-versed in condo and non-condo law and the community lost a great guy when he passed away unexpectedly a couple of years ago.

    Far too cute – especially the one on its back in the middle! Swear I still hear mine all the time. Now there’s a squirrel that’s been showing up on the ledge outside the living room window. Actually stood up with its front paws and nose against the window looking in last week. Wasn’t sure [...]

    Read the NC article Tuesday and the first bit of PCR before leaving it in my car. Still need to read OB’s post too. There was a bit in either NC or PCR that discusses the fact that people who thought they escaped Medicaid and were safe in the subsidized plans could still get thrown [...]

    But on the bright side, we definitely won’t have drought conditions with all the snow that’s been dropped – or will be before the season ends!

    They’ve been like that for quite some time now, maybe the last 20-25 years or so. Still, they’re good for day tripping for the beaches and shopping – if you want to pay the horribly expensive causeway toll that is. If you’re looking for shells, the Shell Factory just north of North Fort Myers is [...]

    Have had family in the Fort Myers area since the ’70s, but visited mostly from the late ’80s to ’07 when I flew down to move mom up here. Though dad still lives there, it’s likely I won’t see him again as there’s no money for travel. We vacayed on Sanibel in the mid-’60s and [...]

    Still hanging in wd! Will be choosing Medicare options this week and looking forward to getting out of the uninsured status starting next month. Not looking forward to giving up several hundred dollars out of my meager benefits for that, but will no longer have my doctor treat me like crap because I had to [...]

    yada yada yada The unemployment rate is coming down because millions of the long term unemployed keep falling off the back end every month, not because anyone has done anything to create enough jobs (well paying ones, not those part-time poverty wage ones) to go around. Why are we still digging out of that damned [...]

    Wow! Just, wow! I never knew drums could sound like that, but will definitely be checking into where to find more. I finally got over my obsession with what the fox had to say and was looking for something new. Thanks for posting it.

    I started working in restaurants when I was 10, so learned a lot from my family about things. My best all-around pan is a smaller, maybe 8″, non-stick from IKEA that costs about $3. Doesn’t matter what you cook in it, it won’t kill your omelet for the couple of years or more that it [...]

    I didn’t have a choice in the matter. It was a very long time ago, and 7-8 jobs ago, so I don’t remember what exactly was being updated. I think I caught it just as or after the delete key was struck though. I’m one of those people who knew enough to be really dangerous, [...]

    I once had a temp IT person delete 4-6 months worth of my work because they were following the written instructions of the company IT folks and there wasn’t a line item to save anything just before hitting delete. Was never able to recreate the work either.

    No worries. I don’t stop in OE much since I’m usually not awake when they start, but then I’m usually not “awake” until mid- to late-afternoon anyway. I’ve had to be on a day schedule for most of this week and have enjoyed being in the middle of things for once.
