  1. It's not necessary to let the county know about your business. Sometimes, neighbors do the "neighborly" thing and notify the county for you!
  2. Had Brunswick stew simmering in the crock pot all day.
  3. My oncologist's office gave us a lightweight duffle bag to take to our treatments. It contained a fleece blanket, socks, cap, insulated lunch tote, and water bottle, with enough room left for a kindle, laptop, books, anti nausea meds, etc. it really came in handy because all of my stuff was in one place. The chemo lounge had free wifi, so it was nice to toss on the blanket and surf the net while I was there.
  4. In 2011 I had radiation as well as chemo (6 weeks of daily radiation, 18 weeks of chemo) and never lost my hair. When I went to my orientation session, we were told hair loss was dependent on the type of chemotherapy used; those of us having weekly chemo treatments probably would experience little to no hair loss and those have treatments every 21 days probably would probably lose their hair after the second treatment. With that said, The Cancer Center at Northside (where I had my radiation treatments) usually had some colorful handmade caps and scarves for patients that were free for patients. There was a goup of ladies that made them and donated them to the center. With regards to wigs, contact her insurance company to see if her plan will pay for a wig if needed. Some will, some won't. The American Cancer society should have information on where cancer patients can get reasonably priced wigs, scarves, and turbans. Her oncologist's office might have information, as well.
  5. I bought my very first brand spanking new car in 1980. It was a z-28 Camaro. I was 19 at the time and I would be responsible for everything (payments, maintenance, and insurance) and my dad wanted my name only on the title. The dealership was fine with it but the insurance company said they could not insure it unless my dad's name was on the title, as well. Not sure if it was because of the type of car or my age (under 21) but that was my experience 30+ years ago.
  6. But the good stuff won't last! So they are have a 1 hour loot guarantee.
  7. Not sure about Paulding's code, but if it's been without power for longer than 6 months in most counties, it will have to be inspected by the county prior to power being turned on.
  8. I'm not going to believe its TP posting until I see a chart.
  9. Wow! Most brides go with a DJ to entertain guests at the reception. The times they are a changin' (so the song says)
  10. Along those same lines.... Remember "The Waltons"? Out of seven children, only ONE of them was worth a flip and it was NOT John Boy!! The family scraped and saved every nickel they could for John Boy's education and what did he do? Write three novels that hardly anyone bought and he was dropped from his publisher. When he returned to Walton's Mountain after the war, he had to go back to Boatright University and take a job as a professor because, as his publisher stated, there was already a glut of wartime novels on the market...who needs another. Jason got a music scholarship...what did he do with it? Well, he had the opportunity to appear on The Grand Ole Opry, but some sort of family crisis prevented him from accepting it. After the war, he bought the Dew Drop Inn so he could contribute to the delinquency of Walton's Mountain by selling liquor and playing the piano every night. Yeah, that was scholarship money well-spent. That brings us to Mary Ellen. Mary Ellen sashayed up to nursing school thinking that they were just going to fall all over her wonderfulness and she'd walk out the door the next week and be a nurse. Well, they sure put her in her place in a New York minute. The minute she started taking the admittance test, she discovered (horror of horrors!!!!) it contained questions about CHEMISTRY....and ALGEBRA!!!!! She hadn't taken those courses in high school and had absolutely no idea they would be on the entrance test. I'll throw her a bone and allow that it is entirely possible that those courses were not offered back when she was in high school, but before she even registered for the test you would have thought she'd have the sense that God gave a billy goat to do a little research. She knew she was going to be a nurse before she even got out of high school. How about asking John Boy to take her to the school one day so she could talk to someone at the school? How about sitting down with that traveling nurse on Walton's Mountain and say, "Uhhh....I know you can't tell me the exact questions that are on the entrance test, but can you tell me exactly what TYPES of questions are on that test? Do you have any books I can borrow? Can I follow you around for a week or so on my summer vacation to see what you do and if this is really something I want to do?" And then, as soon as she's admitted to nursing school she dang near KILLS grandma! "Oh Grandma...you just have that virus that goin' around. Go to bed, drink plenty of fluids, yada yada yada." Turns out Grandma had appendicitis and they managed to get her to the hospital right before it burst. Way to go Mary Ellen. Ben and Erin at least had a little bit of sense. Ben could wheel and deal to get what he wanted, but he really could be an a$$hole when he wanted. Erin took a couple of typing and shorthand courses and got a job as a secretary at JD Pickett's plant. To hear her tell it, she ran the plant. When you really think about it, Jim-Bob was the most useful and likeable of the bunch. Who built a short-wave radio that was able to communicate all the way to London during the blitz and find the mother of the two orphans right at Christmas? Jim-Bob. Who built an ENTIRE car from pieces of scrap he found around Walton's Mountain? Jim-Bob. And when John-Boy returned from the war, returned to Boatright, and was going to start up their television department, who went home and started building a television so the rest of the family could see John-Boy on TV? That would be.....(drum roll, please) Jim-Bob. If you were having trouble with your washing machine and needed help with a repair, you'd have to wait on John-Boy to whip out his Big Chief writing pad and write about the whippoorwills singing in the pines, the aroma of the honeysuckle vines after a summer rain, and the laughter of the children as they walked home from school. Jason would have to find his harmonica first and Ben would want to know what was in it for him. Jim-Bob would have simply walked to the junkyard and found a stove pipe, some old garden hoses, and an old war surplus filing cabinet and built a brand new washing machine. Jim-Bob.....the McGyver of the Depression.
  11. Hope it does get extended...for the remainder of the school year in the county jail. Actions have consequences.
  12. Is it an X? Or could it be an extremely small pie chart...only TP knows for sure.
  13. A long time ago, I read about a nasty divorce where there was a big squabble around who got the house and what nights and weekends the kids would be spending with whom. The judge's decision was that somehow he had the house put in the names of the children and the parents had to find their own separate living arrangements and take turns spending the night in the house. The judge said it wasn't fair for the kids to be shuttled back and forth just because the parents were acting like idiots. As for the OP's story, if I were baby daddy, I'd be dealing with baby mama and baby mama ONLY. If baby mama isn't living up to the terms of the visitation I'd be heading to court.
  14. What about "trail rage"? Maybe she accidentally walked or ran into a biker/skater/runner, etc. and they got so pissed off the beat the crap out of her.
