so i asked my friend if the governor endorses anyone for senate and he told me not until after the primaries and i said well how will people know whom to vote for in the primaries,so he gave me 5 names Diane Capehart,Sam Sanes,Nisky,Michael Thurland and Terrance D. Joseph,now please don't go running around saying the gov endorses these people until he say he does,the gov did not tell me this,it was one of his staffers,you notice there is not a sitting senator there and none of these names have shown up on demmansay,crucians in focus or Mapp,i asked about weber and jn baptiste and was told they both have credibility issues,weber because he jumped from the minority over to the majority and jn baptiste because he left the dem part for the ICE party,i also brought up the Petcoke issue for the refinery and wapa and was told the gov knows about it and is pondering the issue,lol then i asked how much malone was getting from the company he's pushing and the man just laughed at me.

ok we have the lawyer goodman reviewing all of our legal stuff and tweaking things,as far as our wills go we have right of survivorship over each other as far as the house goes,now we're trying to figure out who to will the house to if we still have it when the last of us dies,and no neither of us is dying we're just planning ahead,neither of us wants to leave it to a family member because neither of our families has ever been here,so i'm looking for ideas,no family and no faith based organizations

well i'm watching "fall from grace" on one of the showtime channels and it's a documentary about the rev fred phelps and his strange family,he's the guy that has the godhatesfags.com website,this nutjob has been around for about 15 years now protesting gay funreals and now i guess military funreals,peterson the bigot running for senate is probally a fan,who knows,as much as i despise phelps and his followers,i'd defend in court their right to free speech because i really do believe that is one good thing that sets america apart from alot of other countries in the world today,watching the news today i see they are guarenteeing(sp) mushariff safe passage out of pakistan,lol now who in their right mind wants to live in a country that has to give a leader upon resignation that kind of promise

trw,
on who to leave the house to......have you thought about leaving it to something like habitat for humanity, a shelter, or a school etc? is there a place/group there that has been good to you or even a place in the states that could really benefit - even the money if it was sold?
good planning on your part in my opinion even though it is little weird to think about. at least you know your wishes will be carried out.

we all need wills no matter our age,habitat would be an idea,we're too remote for a shelter or anything like that,i live in the "country" and i have to take NIMBY into account out of respect for the others that live up here. So anyway i just cried my way through the movie "freedom writers" again you just gotta watch this flick,i like her plan of going through all of the grades with your students,i've said earlier i had a teacher in texas that liked her class one year so much she went through 5th,6th,7th,and 8th with us,Mrs.Odin in laredo texas,to me that probally is the best way to teach,you establish a relationship with your students.

trw - i think truebluefan has a good suggestion - you two might want to consider having the executor of your estate sell the home and donate the money to a good cause . . . you two would just have to decide what is important to you such as maybe the animal welfare center since you two have taken in so many animals - just a thought

trw - don't be so sure the executive editor isn' correct! Perhaps they have already siphoned off the other $350K for some senator's neighbor's sister's third ex-husband's fifth cousin twice removed's fourth baby-daddy. All they originally asked for was $100K, right? The rest was a pork barrel rider with a specific purpose, no matter how desperately that money is needed for renovations on turning the old school into a police sub-station.

so i see the hunger strike has turned into a sit in,when does it turn into just plain loitering and unless you're financially independent what on earth do you tell your employer?

That's their problem, they need a job. Then maybe they can finance their struggle by themselves and leave the Government's coffers out of it.

that's exactly what i was wondering too, trw - every day i drive past them and think about the 101 things i need to get done and wondering how they have the time to sit there but then again i wish i was passionate about something to want to sit there for that many days.

today i am sitting here working on my resume and cover letter (time to start looking for a job) - i hate doing this but at least i can sit in a hammock and enjoy the beautiful view while trying to sell myself on one page to potential employers

Not sure - my background is insurance but i would really like to try something different. I have my human resources certification so that's something I might look into but I'm trying to be flexible and consider anything 🙂

they can be really sweet and nice or crabby and rude there,they will have you fill out a detailed work history on their forms and then they like to have your current resume on file,they also expect you to dress as if you're going to an interview you will get a card and a case worker,then you have access to the jobs book which you go through and select what interests you then you talk with your case worker and he/she fills out a referral card for you and may or may not call the company in question to set up an interview,be sure to bring a book and a bottle of water,and then maybe some dove minitures to spread some love.

Passed the protesters about 12:30; they were beating drums, blowing conch shells,holding up traffic and being generally annoying.

Hey Goal...

If you're interested in Human Resources, you can check Pinnacle Services website (www.pinnaclevi.com). It's a contractor of Hovensa and has been looking for someone (unsuccessfully) for a few weeks.

Their motivation is free money. They want something for what was done generations ago to someone else.

I spent the afternoon at Cane Bay and 2 employees of Cane Bay Dive Shop drove a pick-up truck on to the beach to off load dive equipment onto the dive boats. Am I correct that this is against the law because of the turtle nesting? I wanted to say something, but didn't because I hate confrontation and I wasn't sure of the law.

anybody know?
