So those people scowling at my dinky little car are just envious?

My tiny car only provides basic transportation, but it keeps the rain off, has A/C for those few days in the summer when I really need it, and I only need to fill up about once a month.

When I see gas prices like that, I'm glad that my ego is not attached to the size of my car.

Take care, Margaret

good news, finally!

My wife heard earlier today that she has a job as a supervisor for a census team. Nice to have some good news in this house for a while, and since the Shang news has been sad of late, I thought I would share it.

Good news, Matt.

Ray's wife applied for a similar position, so perhaps she'll get similar good news if 'PWs' have the inside track.

Matt, pass on our congratulations to your wife.

And, since I have been a big contributor to the sad news in the Shang lately, I will offset it with a bit of good news. After a month of complaints about the painting and quality of paint that took place in our new house, along with numerous visits from a stream of people that all said basically the same thing ("that's about standard for a new paint job"), a representative of the paint company (the company that makes the paint, not someone from the painting company) finally came by the house today, and conceeded that paint wasn't up to quality. They are providing us with what should be enough of their highest quality paint to repaint the house, and the development company is having someone come in to repaint it for us (and it won't be the same painter as last time.)

Good stuff, Sean! Nice to win one, isn't it?

Wish Ray and his wife luck for me, Elaine. She probably doesn't have to meet the same language standards. Julie didn't until we moved to Ottawa, which nearly scuppered the job. But she managed to pass the language test somehow.

Orientation next week, so we'll find out then how many hours and when this job will be. Hopefully it won't mean having to give up her very parttime current job, since the census gig is only a couple of months.

Kudos to your wife, Matt. Here in NL, which has the lowest per capita ratio of federal jobs of any sort, such news is always cause for celebrations. However, the tea and coffee are on me tonight.

In other news, does anyone out there own an ironing board? I need to know how tall such a thing is.
