I used to work at a place that had that schedule. Ain't it great? A three-day
weekend every other week!

Bering's does have good help who know their areas, BUT, if you're male it's
required that you wear Italian tassel loafers with no socks to get waited
Besides, I wouldn't want to take the chance that any woodworking friends
would see me go in there.
On that same subject, were you aware that there is a Rockler
Woodworking/Hardware store on the N bound feeder street of SW FWY between
Buffalo Speedway and Kirby?
Took my youngest to lunch today and had to park away off from target
restaurant in the same strip ... ended up walking past a shop with Jet
woodworking tools in the front window?? ... for a second there I thought I
was in the wrong time warp.
Had no idea a Rockler existed less than 2 miles from my house ... said they
had been there since December. Lordy, I can feel the crowbar prying away
Your Ace went out of biz?? I live in a small
town,(6000) a BORG moved in about 18 mo. ago.
One lumber yard closed, the other is still going
strong(?) But Ace is going all out. went there
yesterday, needed some "o" rings to rebuild a
kitchen. Had already been to HD, (closer), and
they didn't have both sizes. The guy at Ace took
about 3 seconds to find a pack w/ both sizes. He
knew the manufacturer, and such. Customer service
isn't dead yet!!

Any of the so-called super-stores. As well as specifically the Orange-

Actually, they went out of business because their customers bailed out to save
a few cents on the dollar.
Why would they come back to take another fiscal beating?

You aren't alone! My shop (shipping address) is more than fifteen
miles away from my home (billing address). Last week a young lad
struggled to carry a shipment of six-foot aluminum and brass bars
up the stairs to my third-floor condo.
The next morning, of course, I got to carry the whole lot back
down the stairs, load the works into my 2-door coupe, drive it
all to the shop, unload it, and carry it all to the storage area.
I had called the "customer service" department right before
ordering online to ensure that there wouldn't be any glitches...
The invoice did show the correct addresses. )-:
My mom worked as a secretary for the steelworkers union before she
married my dad. (Back in the good old days). When she got married the
union promptly fired her because her "husband should now take care of
her". I really do not think today is worse - and that was a union's
Yeah. There is improvement. My first MIL was a physicist who ended up raising
kids and teaching high school. For several years, she got no raise. When she
raised a ruckus--this is in the early '50s, mind, she was told she didn't need
the money because her husband had a good job.
Total irrelevancies ruled. Some still do.

Not sure. Union says they want everyone to make a "living wage." or what's
higher, and built into government contracts, "prevailing wage." Now does
any family deserve two such wages while any one has none?
Hint, nepotism is rampant in the union halls.
