  1. Check your state labor laws. I know for employees here on the 2020 Census (Federal government workers) we are required to have a 30 minute unpaid meal period after 5 hours of work. I've rejected time sheets when people failed to show that in their work schedule.

    Had some of the game on Monday night. GF commented on how much the Nats logo looked like the Walgreens logo - her folks live in a 55+ community in Delaware, and her Mom mentioned seeing the W logo in people's windows, and she thought it was for some Walgreens home delivery service for seniors...

    Thoughts and prayers... 🤣
  4. I always thought Cablevision was the worst company in the world, until I moved to Charlotte and started dealing with Time Warner Cable. Being bought out and becoming Spectrum hasn't helped them much. Every year it's the same thing "Thank you for being a loyal customer, we're only going to raise your rate $20 a month..." I had been paying $210 a month for cable/internet/telephone - even though I don't use the phone, they kept telling me it made the package less expensive. A few weeks ago, I got my latest bill - it went up to $266! I spent an hour and a half on the phone with them, called them criminals, went around in circles over the bill - I rolled off the program I was on, so I went to full rate. It arrived 2 days after my billing period started, and in May they announced they would no longer pro-rate monthly bills if you make a change. Last Thursday, I called them (a few days before my new billing period starts) and cancelled cable and phone, going to internet-only for $65. I then signed up for YouTube TV at $50 a month. So far, it's been fine, and I'll be saving $150 a month, so I'm happy about that.
  5. It could have been "Kit Xiaoping" for all we know! 😁

    I'm not a tattoo-type, but I might get that as a tattoo.

    I've been a Met fan for 50 years (damn, that makes me feel old) you get to expect it.
  8. We went to a Cars and Coffee gathering this morning, and found these huskies just hanging out enjoying the day.
  9. Many places these days won't take anything over a $20.
  10. My old company is still going through a fair bit of turmoil, especially in the division I worked in. I saw a job posting that looked to be a good fit, in a different area of the company, and on the same campus where I worked - about a 4 minute commute for me. I applied, and a couple of weeks ago I got an e-mail from a recruiter in HR, looking to set up a call. I'm in Atlanta this week for training with the Census Bureau, and I sent him an e-mail with a few options for a call. I didn't hear back from him, so I e-mailed him Monday, only to get it bounced as "no such address". I called, but got a busy signal, no voice mail or anything. I contacted a good friend who still works there - she checked and said he no longer works for the company, apparently in the week since he contacted me to set up an interview, he was laid off. I sent an e-mail to the general "Talent Acquisition" e-mail address yesterday, but haven't heard anything yet.

    Did he hit a guy too? I was following on the MLB Gameday thing, and watched his meltdown. Glad the Mets came back to win it in 11, but it would have been nice for a little less drama...
  12. You don't have to outrun a bear - you just have to outrun your friend... 😜
  13. What I love about the shot Michael Collins took of the LEM and the Earth above the Moon is that every human alive is in that photo, except for Collins.
  14. I was 9 years old when Apollo 11 landed on the Moon. It was something I was following, my parents were very interested in it (my Dad worked in the aviation business since WWII) and we watched all of the TV coverage of the mission. I even took photos off the TV using my Kodak 126 Instamatic camera - the pictures are probably someplace at my folk's house, they never throw out anything! Here's a genuine Lunar Module at the Cradle of Aviation Museum back home on Long Island, just a few miles from the Grumman plant where they were built. This one would have been used for the Apollo 18 mission, which was eventually cancelled.
