So, yesterday I went back to Home Depot to get more paint. I discussed my woes with the staff there in the paint dept. She replies, "oh, that brand is hard to apply, no matter what surface." Well, gee, I went in there with tons of questi... Read more

Blood Test vs. Physical for Potential Job?
Tuesday, September 23, 2014      14 comments

Maybe it's just me, but I really think that a blood test is too personal and invasive by a potential employer. I've nothing to hide, and am in good health, but I feel there is too much information that is no one's business that is contained in ... Read more

I took pics of the front yard this morning, but having trouble uploading to the SP site. Either my camera or program is wonky. I'll keep trying. My landscaper, Danny, and I are making a minor alteration on the very front section, so that will... Read more
Yard is Finished and Stunning
Wednesday, September 17, 2014      12 comments

Once the hot (triple digit) temps are over, I will get out there and take pics. People are knocking at my door already, asking who did this yard. He's putting his sign out front in a little while that I'll keep up for a bit. His work is one-o... Read more
