  1. Overly sensitive???? Are you kidding me? I don't care what Chris Rock, says. What you said is blatant racism and I'm calling you on it.
  2. Can't back you up on this one! Calling this out for racist bullcrap that is completely unnecessary. I disagree with Obama's political beliefs, not his race. This kind of crap infuriates me just as much and is just as destructive to our country as the craziness in our Federal Govt. You should be ashamed!
  3. Samantha Maxwell in Dallas is also good.
  4. We all better eat as much crow as we can right now because the cost of almost everything is about to sky rocket
  5. I don't know the employee. I don't know any of the details of the situation other than whats been reported. I have been through several types of restraint training at former jobs with special needs children/adults and some of them are very complicated. Especially in dealing with children, it never goes exactly as you are trained and some of those holds are complicated. A misplaced hand could construe an improper hold. For example in one training, when blocking an over-head blow, I did not rotate my arm correctly from side to side and my elbow stuck out. I was told that if my elbow came in
  6. I was asking about the movie studio. Is it also involved in the airshow? I thought that was just the airport.
  7. So two days, 171 views and no replies...so I assume nothing is going on that anyone knows about.
  8. As I was driving home tonight, I saw the smoke and planes over the airport. I just got me thinking about the airport and movie studio. I guess something is at least going on at the airport. Anyone know of anything at the movie studio? Nothing is on their website since about June. Is the Jackie Robinson story the only thing filmed there?
  9. I'm pretty sure I had it 3 years ago. I had been sick with the usual winter virus in about Jan, and kept feeling sickly off and on for weeks, but not really sick. A few weeks later, I got up went to work and started coughing so hard that it gagged me and I threw up...barely made into the restroom. This happened three more times in 15 minutes. I was not nauseated at all. Went to the dr. and all they did was prescibe nausea medicine, even though I told them that the coughing was the cause, not nausea. A few days later, I saw on the news that Cobb was having a large breakout of Whooping cou
  10. In the course of US History, when has a school been required to provide a student's personal school supplies? The donations are primarily for pencils, paper, notebooks, book bags, etc.
  11. Honestly, I haven't read this whole thread yet, so I may be taking this post out of context. To my knowledge, no one is requiring anyone to provide school supplies even for their own child. Most, even minimally responsible parents, buy the basics of pencils, paper, notebooks, book bag, etc for their children's own personal use at school. (are you really complaining about that????) Some want to, but can not afford it. Many do not think it a priority, for whatever reasons. Some parents, who are financially able, choose to help out the classroom in other ways such as dry erase markers, white
  12. Not an attack just a difference of opinion --- I don't really understand why a dress on a woman is considered more professional or more "dressy." Dress pants and a blouse are every bit as professional and usually much more practical. Unless someone is truly tied to their desk all day, and depending on the work conditions, a dress could be limit some basic job functions. I think the mindset of women having to wear dresses went out somewhere during the 1970s. For example: I used to have a job that was somewhat tied to a desk. We had a file room and storage room where old files or material
  13. The start-up was a pain, but I've used it for a year with no big problems. I've had some vm/texts not show up in sequence a couple of times; some sort of weird delay. Had one show up a couple of days later, but does not happen often. I've been happy with it. If you're not trying to transfer an existing phone number, the start-up is easier.
  14. Good for Hondo! Sweet dog, too. He was happy to be loved on during a break from sniffing lockers at the school one day.
  15. I haven't looked at stats or verified this info. I'm only going by what I've been told by Texas residents, but it seemed when the downturn started, much of Texas, especially the Houston area was one of the least hit areas. I know people from GA who were going to TX and OK for temp or perm. work. My friends in TX were not being hit like we were with jobs and real estate. I recently heard that Houston has now started major cuts to public schools including furloughing teachers. They had avoided this until recently. I guess it depends on what area you are in, whether or not its getting bet
  16. Relax, according to Internetslang.com, PHAT means: pretty hot and tempting
  17. Rafting down the Ocoee is much better than a train
  18. I was recently reading about areas near Las Vegas that are worse than GA in terms of jobs and foreclosures. Interestingly, they were also listed as one of the fastest growing areas of the country for several years before the recession. I think it is the population/housing boom, over-priced homes, and focus on building industry that lead to the similar problems there and here. I wonder if other of the fastest growing areas of the country are in similar circumstances. I do know that Douglas County, near Denver had a population boom similar to Paulding, but I don't think Colorado was hit as ha

    I eat almond butter and banana sammiches
  20. I heard a while back that the movie studio, or whatever it is called, was completed and they had partnered with some company to bring in business. I've never heard anything else about it. Has anything been filmed there, yet? How long has it been completed?

    I prefer that that they go on two separate slices so I can take the jelly side off, fold the PB half together and eat it. Mastered that skill after years of PBJs in school. If I make them, it is only PB. Jelly makes it too sweet.

    I can't figure out for sure if I'm laughing at you or with you
