Who still wants the biggest box/tin of colored pencils he can find.

 

Arteza has a set of...120(?) that are pretty nice and fairly reasonably priced. I got mine from Amazon but they do have their own site. They're my favorite next to Prismacolor but much more affordable.

Thanks.

I'll have to look into that.

*Sigh* Too good to last. the key holder that just was out due to medical leave has put her two week notice in.  which means we will have to run with just three key holders again. meaning one day off for us.

I can not blame her, but she says she might want to come back after a bit.... I doubt we will be able to hold her job open for very long... which will mean she will be moved down both in pay grade and in job title. I mean hells I would love to be 'just a cashier' again, but the pay cut would not be worth it. She and I talked and she says it just not work, but there are a lot of small things that factored into her putting it in. I just want her to make the best decision, she has quit before then came back and she was upset over the pay cut then as well.... 

 

Anyways, with the above situation, I have not worked on either of my PbP and have stopped work on my projects, there just seems to be no point in keeping it up. I will work on the PbPs, but World 23 is on hold indefinitely. 

 

Oh well such is life right? I hope everyone is having the best day they can and I hope it just gets better.

Is it just me, or are there other people out there who detest those stupidly bright headlights that seem to be the current fad?

Nope, not just you, I absolutely LOATHE those things. I'm really happy that the people who have them can see 2 miles into the future, but I can't even see my nose when they're shining in my face. 

OOOh, me three !!!

I have to wear either those yellow anti-glare glasses or the really light brown "bad weather" glasses at night so I'm not blinded by those dang things !!

They give me migraines so they irritate the heck out of me. And that's all I'm going to say on that because I will rant and I don't want to go down that road right now.

I am trying to look up things about our vacation this summer. Gov't websites are...not the friendliest things to navigate. It also doesn't help that some links just loop you back up to the beginning of the page you're already on up to the top. I counted and we're going to 5 different countries on this cruise so lots of things I want to figure out before we leave. Like are all my meds legal where we're going?

Probably a good thing to check up on, I mean with the big habalooh over a certain athlete & a certain country last year.

 

I've been thinking about my vacation next month, but looking more & more like I (we) probably won't be going. My wife really hasn't said anything about other then when I first asked her to go. I saw on Big River site the other day a resin printer I've been kinda interested in. We did have to get a new water heater out the ordeal over the weekend. Luckily, I told my mom about it (more or less conversation with her) & she ended up calling me later in the day & said her & dad would outright help us out of that one, so I'm not sure I wanna go on vacation right away after getting that from them, either.

 

So who knows what's in store other then a concert & overnight stay in Boise later this month. Reminds me, I need to re-install Ticketmaster app on my phone.

Are you referring to extremely bright headlights or the LED Light Bars sold as an after-market accessory?

The problem with both of these is one of the reasons I have long advocated for annual safety inspections before the license tags may be renewed.

And yes, my older eyes are definitely affected by these, even with my hundreds of thousands [now in the millions] of miles of driving experience.
