Thanks.  When I came home last night, I didn't see anyone on this site, and then received an email from PlazaBum mailer requesting I join that site, so wasn't sure what was going on.  I guess it was a just quiet day yesterday for "the rejects."


I was doing a community service this weekend.  My company supports a program to get kids off the street.  They/we own several homes where kid can get their lives together, with job assistance, cloths, transportation, some cash .......  

Every year we do a Burger booth at a local event.  I was the main burger chef.  I cooked and served 150+ breakfasts and probably 800 burgers, cheese burger, and Lumber Jack and Janes.    

Needless to say my participation was limited the last three days.  

We are open for business and ready to opine..  I wish PB the best of luck but for the moment I am staying here.


What a great way to spend the weekend, good for you.  Obviously, my little brain was a little confused.  It's like going to visit parents, and finding out they moved and didn't tell you Laughing

While that hasn't happened exactly.  I did have a client that sold the house out from under their son because he wouldn't move out.  Not didn't take the hint mind you he refused to move out.  We went to show the house and the guy who was going to buy it talked to us and we told him of the situation.  He laughed bought the house and told him to get out.  

He refused and we had to call the sheriff.  They gave him a choice.  Move out with in 36 hours or go to jail.  He got out.

Being in the real estate business is never boring.  I have been on all sides of a transaction in the last 10 years and it never gets old.  I had a guy who came into my office last year to sign documents for a refi, and he was so snockered he couldn't hold the pen.  I had to call the closing and boy was the loan officer po'd.  Found out later that the only reason the guy was doing the refi, was because the LO had talked him into it over several dozen martinis several weeks prior to the closing.

I love your post Scrut


thanks jazz, i wish i didn't have to write it...someone has moved my cheese in a big way and i'm afraid that it was me.

the i.t. people at work have put me on the "a" list and made me a system administrator...in simple english that means i know my way around a computer well enough to load stuff into the server without risking a system meltdown. for someone of my generation, i'm pretty tech savvy or so i've been told.

but i am clueless when i am out of my comfort zone and believe me, i left that zone this afternoon.

i can deal with the fact that mozilla firefox doesn't do what i want it to do...but it pisses me off that i can't load spell check on my internet explorer without installing a bunch of crap ware along with it.

that and the fact that my itunes library is huge and that i'm going to have to reload it by hand because i can't find it on my external hard drive.(it's there...i know it's there, i listened to some of it this morning, on the old rig).

now of course i can buy an expensive data cable(a simple u.s.b. won't work) and import all the wonderful files (including genrecide) from my old unit...but chances are i'll reinstall all the malware and crap that i don't want on my new computer.

ain't technology grand?



edited to add:

i deleted the firefox browser and reinstalled it and it works great.
i am logged in on firefox and bum rejects recognizes me (that is, if i really am scrutney. sometimes i wonder.)

spell check is working fine (at least i think it is. it could tell me that i misspelled "paint" and i wouldn't know the difference.)

gee...now i get to build a new task bar.
i can scarcely contain my glee.

that's the truth...i miss 'em too.
i know martymoo had some things to sort out and puc needs to rest her eyes so she can read the golden nuggets of knowledge that we post here daily...but that doesn't change the fact that i miss them.

and someone needs to cook me some dinner.
