    Small engine repair?

    My lawnmower is either leaking oil or burning through it really fast. I've never had problems like this and have no clue where to take it. Who do you use? (it's a craftsman if that makes a difference)

    Franks in Maine

    I've been there twice recently and had an excellent meal both times. I'll absolutely go back.

    Advice on getting a job

    It's been a long time since I had to look for a job. Obviously, I've been spending my time being a Mom and caring for a family member, but now I have a lot more free time on my hands and want a job. A friend helped me with a resume, but I'm not sure where or how to start looking. It doesn't help that I don't have a college education, but does responsibility and reliability count for anything these days? Is going back to school my best option? It seems like I'm seeing a lot of educated people who aren't getting jobs either. I suppose I'm looking for advice from other Mom's that have been in my shoes or even business owners/managers who would be hiring someone like me. If you are going to ask what I want to do, I really don't know. I'm not above bagging groceries, but I was hoping for something a little more rewarding.

    Advice on getting a job

    Shortly after I started this thread I got a job, then another and now I'm getting a promotion at the 1st job! After 16 of not working and always being home, I now have 2 jobs and am never home. It's a little hectic, but I love it!
  5. Oh Wolf, God bless you!! I needed that laugh today!! I agree, now I've seen it all too!!

    Winter Storm

    It's pouring rain/snow here now, if the temp drops any more it's going to be another white knuckle drive tonite!
  7. Ain't that the truth?! I am so sick of turning on the morning news only to hear the millionth update on Kate...oops sorry, Kathrine & Wills wedding. I can see some celeb interviews occasionally, it is morning TV, but there is too much crap being reported. But, obviously someone likes it or it wouldn't be on.

    I agree, to each their own, but there is just something so wrong about covering up all that fabulous woodwork with paint and carpet. Even if the molding is all plaster...man, those colors are tragic!

    Mandatory calorie labeling

    Pardon the pun, but you seemed to have missed the big BUT at the end of the article... In this study, however, the lack of change may be due to the fact that Taco Time was already identifying its healthier food choices in all of its restaurants prior to the new labeling law.

    Another Hero Gone

    I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
  15. Do any of you have the mobile broadband that just plugs into your USB port? I'm shopping for one and was wondering what is the best pricewise and qualitywise?

    Mobile Broadband, What's the best?

    Virgin Mobile Broadband2Go. It's charging now so I haven't used it yet.

    Palin got her wish

    That's MRS. Palin, she quit her job to be a reality TV star.
  19. What the heck are you talking about? When did I do a 180? I completely agree with that persons meaning of family. It doesn't matter if you are a mother, father, parent, guardian...whatever, we just have to do our best to raise happy, healthy kids. What our "title" is on a gov't document doesn't make one bit of difference.
  20. I know a lot of messed up people who come from "traditional" families, so what's your point?
  21. Who cares? People need to mind their own business...worry about your own family.
