It's all about repackaging your skill set, I suppose.

A gal i knew in CA years ago, worked from home. She did medical billing for some doctors.

What?!?! Apparently massive amounts of alcohol and the Green Bay Packers contribute to a spike in domestic violence in the fall and early winter. Who knew!

Okay, that's it for my randomness today
Interesting...I guess that's a local phenomenon and it could be different in other areas. Does anybody remember the "news" from decades ago that there was a correlation between ice cream sales and violent crimes? It's a statistical study that's used to teach concepts like causality, correlation, etc. Ice cream sales go up in the summer, more people hang out in the streets late at night (or used to anyway), more drinking and fights, more violent crime. Ice cream has nothing to do with violent crime per se... just a correlation.

One town around here has a yearly "party". Has-been bands come and perform, street-fair food, crappy crafts, etc. Tens of thousands of hillbilly rednecks (and I use that term lovingly, because I am one) come out and party down together and have a great time. Then somebody's beer gets spilled and the shotguns come off the window racks.

Good times.

LOL. Please, woman! I don't go, I just keep my fingers crossed that I don't have to WORK that day! We all request it off. We work any holiday instead of "This town's party day".

There's a Chelsea Handler Monologue video I had about 4th of July parties --but youtube disabled it. Hysterical, but one thing she said was, "Quick side note. Chuy taught me to avoid any gathering where culturally they celebrate by shooting guns in the air. A bullet through the frontal lobe might ruin your festive occasion."

Thursday, you have the best antler humor. You probably think I say that to all the antler humorists, but I don't.
