economy in the states
i have following this message board for a few years and you guys are very nice people. we have land in STX on the east end, marinjoa (sp) and now we can't afford to get down to STX to see it again. does anyone recommend a person to clean it up a little so we can walk the property a bit when we can get there, hopefully this summer.
Also, i remember that there was a beautiful building across from the Roman Catholic church that AA meeting were held in. is it still happening there?
Again, thank you for the help from islanders, etc.
As of about 2 months ago the AA meetings were held there.
call Geromino Newton 340-332-9099
He is the grounds keeper at our condos and has a couplr of helpers that help him with outside jobs. He does a very good job. He did my land, and the neighbor was so impressed he had him do his as well.
tell him Terry from AZ told you about him.
aa meetings are now held at the moravian church in the building on the top right,the entrance to the property is across from jiffy mart sun 7pm mon 8 noon and 7 tues 8 noon and 7 weds 8 noon thursdays 8 noon and 7 fridays 8 noon and 7 saturdays noon and 7 i think i got saturday right
Terry, thank you for the referral, this net work is great, and, again, it is nice, for me, to stay connected even though we are not living on the island as of yet. My husband and i purchased the property three two years ago, and, since, we have lost a bulk of our savings. We are fortunate to have the land.
thanks again, ....
trw, thank you i appreciate these directions...
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House. One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota.
All three go with a White House official to examine the fence. The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.."
The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."
The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, "$2,700.."
The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"
The Chicago contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence! "Done!" replies the government official.
And that, my friends, is how the new stimulus plan will work.
Good one, antiqueone
Sad but True!
I'm so glad I'm not in the states anymore. I was a builder. Between the recession, the economy and the mortage trouble I would have lost everything.
