    Careerchat III

    Yeah, what happened???!! You can't just leave us hanging like that. Unless they kicked his butt so fast and so hard, he's still flying through the air, in which case he can file a lawsuit against the bastards.

    Careerchat III

    If anyone's interested, there is a serious need for line cooks in all kinds of restaurants in the Detroit area. I just read an article in our newspaper about it. We have restaurants popping up everywhere around here, but a lack of bodies to fill the jobs. Hope this linky-dink works: https://www.freep.com/story/entertainment/dining/mark-kurlyandchik/2018/11/15/skilled-labor-shortage-changing-metro-detroit-restaurants/1933709002/ ETA: It's a pain to read unless you're a subscriber. But they quoted a sous chef who left his job at an upscale restaurant to be a line cook because of the better hours and pay.

    In Michigan, AFAIK, kratom is legal, though there is a proposed bill banning it. The senator who sponsored it retired last year, 2017, so it hasn't gone anywhere. But who knows in this climate. https://thekratomconnection.com/kratom-legal-michigan/ This is the first I've heard of this particular plant or its properties, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that. All the attention has been on medical marijuana, which is legal in Michigan. In fact, recreational usage was just decriminalized in the last election period. If there's something out there to help all the folks suffering, I'm all for it. Edit: Michigan also has the lowest sales tax rate on it too - which is kind of ridiculous. Don't you pass these sorts of laws to RAISE money?? Right now, most of the profits are going to the sellers. And it sure doesn't mean it's any cheaper.

    Buying a television or other stuff - sales are coming!

    I blush to admit this, but we still have a friggin', ugly-ass big box TV that refuses to die, and my SO won't replace it until it dies. At this rate, it'll outlive us. I hates it and wishes it wasn't.

    Dutch man sues to change his legal age

    I knew I heard it somewhere. (But it was really through Plato. I'm much too young to have heard it directly from Socrates.)

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    And that's a "fact," Jack. I think the link between the "Indian Chief" carvings which stood outside tobacco shops originally referenced back to tobacco's original usage by the native people of North and South America. (More North than South.) Yes. And a good one.

    The Haunting of Hill house [spoilers]

    I too loved AHS Season 1. It's been careening downhill since then. I take it this Hill House has nothing to do with Shirley Jackson's novel, except maybe the one character?

    Dutch man sues to change his legal age

    Yes. That's the irony of it.

    The one thing I'm sure of is that I don't know anything.

    I'd like to say something, Datepalm, and please don't overthink it, but I really do love your posts. Through some weird set of circumstances, if there was only one boarder whose posts I could ever read, it would be you and yours.

    I've always been blessed with thick, healthy hair, so I pay the minimum currently that I can to get a simple style and have done with it. It's below my shoulders, but I normally wear it in a French twist or a ponytail lately. With the cold weather finally arriving, I'll wear it down more. I used to pay outrageous amounts out in California for a professional stylist, but I really don't think it looked any better then than it does now.

    What Do You Do When You Are Bored?

    It's the only game that's moved me to crack open the ol' wallet to buy some "aids."

    Not to threadjack or anything ( ) but the Jelly version's graphics and fun factor are miles above the original CC.
