I have some good news: After a very tumultuous year, which included 2 job losses and 8 months of unemployment, I was finally permanently hired at the company I''ve been temping for this past Monday!
I thank my lucky stars every single morning on the way to work that I am employed. (I know, it sounds cheesy!)

I spent two amazing days with my soldier... He is an incredible, determined young man and I am deeply proud of him.

I also fell in love with South Carolina and its people.. and Houston from the air (I also had amazing bbq at the airport and love the accents!).
How beautiful, my past two and a half days have been absolutely amazing.
Ah, that is wonderful; tell your son thank you from all of us! Big hugs and glad you are back home!

Highway superintendent turns down raise, some coworkers follow. http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local&id=6506288&rss=rss-wabc-article-6506288

What an admirable man.
Kimi, thanks for sharing that; that is quite amazing you don''t see many people doing something like that! Very admirable!
I''m glad you were touched by the story as well. It''s nice to know that some people recognize when they have enough, and taking more would be harmful to their community. I read elsewhere that he saved Yorktown over $1 last year by streamlining processes, and as the story says, at least 4 other local employees followed his example and turned down their raises.

I promise I will, lucky! I''m so excited to see what you have for me. We''re really trying to be frugal this Christmas, but my entry a few years ago caused a new rule to be implemented: No handmade ornaments. I''m really looking forward to Thanksgiving and wanted to hold off until after we celebrate that wonderful holiday first.

Awwww what a great picture SDL! Your son sure is handsome...how old is he again?


Here is some good news/bad news

Baby cheetahs born at zoo! (with pic and video....soooo cute).
Bad news is, that there are less cheetahs alive than people at a high school football game.
Let''s hope they keep breeding!

SDL - that is a wonderful picture of you and your son. Thanks for posting it.

ETA: Skippy I heard about that man on the news losing 140 pounds so he could join the service. Amazing!

I have some good news too! I will be out of a job in the middle of January and got a call yesterday for an opening that I qualify for. And they will wait for me to finish were I currently am! I prayed every night for about 5 months straight about this. He works wonders!

And SDL, tell your son thank you. Very admirable and self-less.

Hopefully this will put a smile on your faces. Last weekend I took my dog Harley to get his picture with Santa at our local Invisible Fence office. He did great, enjoyed some christmas cookies and PEED ON THE TREE right beside Santa. Ha. Thank goodness they are used to dogs and got a kick out of it!
