Quilter, granite just breaks all your dishes and stainless is a pain to keep clean. You won't miss it one bit. Yeah, I am going to save the interviewer the trouble tomorrow by telling her upfront that I will not work in that neighborhood. Heck, I won't drive through it with the car doors unlocked.. ...

Re: Daily check in February 23, 2020

For this I will make him homemade pizza. :-D I dropped our homeless buddy off at the bus stop this morning so he could...
