Birthday Cards, Christmas Cards: Make A List, Check It Twice

Posted 10-29-2017 at 08:31 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

The more people I know, the more I've got to deal with marking my calendar for birthdays. And that includes new ones with people I've just met in recent months. Not only that, but in a few short weeks, it will be time to get Christmas cards and make a list and be sure I get enough for the folks at work.

Routine? Well, yeah. Such is part of the parlance of keeping in touch with great co-workers for the moments that are special. Today, I've worked on a birthday card...

HIGH HAWK (affortable housing)

Posted 10-29-2017 at 11:56 AM by lizahazel49

I had a interview for High Hawk in May, but the building is not completed yet and it doesn't have COO. I sent out a inquiry by email to see how far is my application status. They stated that they will call when they get to my log #'s. Here the confusing part, the next day they sent me pictures of the model unit. Two weeks later sent me another photos of the building, and stated to be patient. Is anyone else going though this and does anyone know if I do have a chance with this building. what I really...

Changing the US educational system to be like Germany's - separating students into streams?

Posted 10-27-2017 at 10:24 PM by Blondebaerde

A benefit to this is that private schools are largely unnecessary in Germany: the problem students are taken out of the classrooms

Bogus Dates On Coupons --- Can The Coupon Last Forever?

Posted 10-27-2017 at 09:47 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

In my mail, not too long ago, came some great things from the donut shop. I probably get something like this every other month or so, but in this latest offering, I saw something very unusual about these that no one else might have caught any other time.

Now, it takes human beings to type stuff in whenever coupons or any other printed material happen. And this had to be the work of a human being (Well, you know, we are human beings and not fake-oids), for these...
