You drink Landshark too? My daughter got me a case from one of her beer days at SeaWorld. I think it's pretty good, but most people call it a Corona in a different bottle. I like Corona too though and free beer is usually very good.

I will drink almost ANY "hoppy beverage" (well, ALMOST!). And this one had a cool name, reminiscent of the old SNL skit, so we tried it. Not bad. My fave is still Scaldis, buuuuuuuuutttttt.............

And I really HATE resume sorting software! I'm ALREADY outta the running for the position that I wanted. And the other one that I applied for, even if it makes the "sift", I prolly won't get, since it'd be a "conflict of interests". (Same program as Otherhalf ~ they'd hafta transfer someone out of one of the other programs.) Bummer. Oh well......

I know you said most, not all. But I just need to point that out because I meet far too many people who will say they 'couldn't' do those things, when they just didn't realize they could make it happen on their own, if it was something that was a priority. It doesn't need to be a priority for all, but if it's something you want, you find a way to do it. The problem I think is that most don't even know it's possible, even if you're low income. Certainly growing up, no one I knew ever travelled outside the country, and almost none had gone to college (although a couple of my older siblings did, we were the first generation to do so, and most of my 60 cousins did not). I've got multiple higher degrees, and have been to 4.5 continents (Central America _ .5)

Thanks Chaka. I understand that you are highly educated, and most of us are not. And yes, we all have the same opportunities to do what you did. We just didn't have the gumption. Point taken.

Default I'm Baaaaccccckkkkk! :)

Just got back from the MAC Terminal dropping our dear friends off to get a flight to Germany back home.

LOVED having them here, so enjoyed the time together...but glad to be able to be back with my "CDF" friends as well!

VERY little computer time with visitors...especially from across the pond...so much to do and see (and buy) when stateside!

Did they get out and see everything our lovely city has to offer? Did they melt? And did they buy some ceramic chili peppers to take back and hang in their kitchen?
