    Yes, this was a tragedy. And I understand people who say that the police officer should have shot at a leg, arm or shoulder rather than the torso. But what the officer saw was someone holding a gun...

    I am coming out of lurkdom to respond to this.

    Ferguson is a hop, skip and jump away from where I live. I have been there many times. The people who live there want peace and may want to protest...

    I have a written letter from the chairman who called me fat and ugly. HR has a copy of it. But the person in HR I talked to when this happened is no longer there, and they made it clear today that...

    Oh, and not a state school. We have no retirement pensions, there is a strange inequity in the pay scale, and the faculty (at least in my dept.) are nuttier than fruitcakes. You can't believe what...

    No union. Unfortunately, so much of the stuff I have goes back so far that the people I talked to in HR are no longer here --- and none of their records can be found --- convenient. Today HR sat...

    Oh, it's been documented, and I have been to HR countless times. They aren't interested in doing anything about it. Can't find a lawyer who handles labor/employee-employer problems except for those...

    I hate my job....

    Just back from another fruitless conversation with HR. I cannot understand how they refuse to do anything about the faculty in my department. I have been told, by the faculty, that I am "too fat...

    I had that problem for years, and the D&C was as much a treatment as a diagnostic. There was nothing wrong other than that I had a heavy uterine lining that didn't shed properly every month. Never...

    I love the look of Merrill's and Keen's, but they don't make them big enough for me! The only shoes I can find big enough are Blunnies or men's New Balance --- and in those I wear an 11 or 11.5, 4E....

    I was in St. Lucia years ago, when Club Med was still there. It is beautiful. The beach is gorgeous --- I'm not a sand/beach person, but it was quiet, peaceful, super for relaxing. I don't know...

    The Enzyte ones were so awful --- but yes, hilarious. THe Viagra/Cialis commercials are just annoying as hell --- I really hate to let people know this, but there really is more to life than sex. ...

    He's cute, doing great, and it looks like you're having fun! You found yourself a diamond! And you've had him just 18 months? He looks like a packer you've had forever! Congrats!

    For Bruce --- it was money. Although I'm not sure I understand why --- he was a fabulous trainer, had an awesome place in my area, everyone knew and liked him. Until he decided to hurry along the...

    It's like Bruce and the Morgans a few years back, when he was breeding Saddlebreds but registering them as Morgans. Several of those horses ended up as big time winners, and all of it was negated,...

    I do a lot of steamed broccoli and/or cauliflower in the microwave. Add some chicken breast to it, a little soy sauce *OR* queso --- great meal. Top a baked potato with broccoli, add a little soy...

    I dropped cable in favor of dish because it was cheaper. But if I had modern TVs, I'd drop the dish in an instant. My TVs are both 35+ years, and without either cable or dish, they can't get any...

    Reminds me of when I was showing at a county fair and they started up the amusement rides right as I was going past a corner --- where the "Octopus" ride was! My horse had a come-apart, as did a...

    I liked JAG, love the original NCIS, don't care for the LA version, and the NO version is eh --- I like Scott Bakula, but he's a local boy. :-) Mark Harmon is mine, so keep your meathooks off of...

    I can't imagine a doc not going along with your request. On the other hand, I have mine trained to NOT ask me to do it. Yes, I should. Yes, my dad died of liver cancer that most likely came from...

    The horse is a saint and worth his weight in gold --- no horse should have to put up with that nonsense. Yeah, the horse has seen it before, poor thing. He need a new home. And the owner needs to...

    I'm lucky, I guess, that after my Dad died, my Mom set up everything. Her second husband died, and she moved into a particular retirement community. When her mind was slipping and she was falling...

    Can't remember the brand right away, but I have a small electric chainsaw that goes through everything I need it to. It's lightweight and easy to handle. It was less than $100 when I got it. I did...
