Sleeping in; takin' the kids out to breakfast....sledding, hot chocolate in the morning; and workin' on the "honey-do" list tomorrow afternoon for me.

Exciting, I know. :p

Anyone else have plans for the "holiday?" :hmmm:

Only the usual derelicts get that day off: postmen and teachers.

I have it off, but will probably work at home half the day, do a few chores, and go catch a movie with the family.

Vacation? Yeah.. the way it works out I'll be off 4.. work 2.. off 7.. work 1 and off 4. Not bad for only burning one week of vacation.

I only work 3 days a week in the first place. 12 hours a day.

Nah--you're right, I'm a real dumb ass....no need to list mine; all four were mail-in/correspondence coursework from some ripoff uinversity in the back of a comic book....found 'em when I was takin' a dump in the outhouse. That or after I banged my sister, or aunt, in the teepee.

I know, I know; not real degrees.....I'm sure your degree was much more difficult, regardless of what it was.

Of course I will. I must admit I was quite insulted when you bought a George Foreman instead of a crockpot. I feel a lot better now. Did you get a crockpot?

Let me start you off with the roast beef. My crockpot is a 5 quart (I think). It is just right for about a 2 lb. roast. More than that and you will be eating it for two weeks. That's the hard part of cooking for one. Anyhow, buy a well marbled (with fat interspersed throughout the roast) roast of about 2 lbs. Get a small bottle of beef boullion cubes from the spice rack at the grocery. Put one cube in about a cup of water (Do you have a glass measuring cup) and bring to a boil, melting the cube. Put the roast in the pot and turn it on HIGH. Pour the beef broth over it. Then go play golf, go to class or whatever for 4 hours. It will be great when you get home. I also like to add peeled and cubed potatoes and carrots sliced into 1/2 inch pieces about 2 hours before serving. Turn down the crockpot to 1/2 heat when adding veggies. Sounds like a lot I know but it really isn't. I'll PM you some recipes for chili, spaghetti, etc.

You farm boys are smarter than I thought. That only comes when you you get the whole section bought (about age 60). Don't worry about it while you're living on the 40 your daddy gave you.

I really didn't want to alienate anybody for getting off work. I think it's great. I was just shooting at selected targets who happened to be gubment slugs. I intended to offend them.

WHY Rogers? Just curious. Really. :hmmm:

We also run a Fireworks stand for 11 days....which is a royal pain in the ass.

A few years ago when I was still green at my present job, I asked my boss if we had Monday off. His response was "huh, what for?" I don't mind working today but I still can't figure out why they refuse to honor this holiday yet shut down if the weatherman even hints at an inch of snow.

I moved here from Tulsa after I hooked up with another contracting company. From here I'm able to manage several techs who cover NW Ar from Ft. Smith to the Missouri border. It is the 2nd fastest growing region in the US behind only as Vegas.

And unlike the anniversary of the birth of our nation, Bob Dole didn't even have to take paid leave or work 4, 10 hour days to enjoy the priviledge.

Believe it or not, Sioux Falls is like 4th in the country in the "fastest growing" areas....behind Vegas, Ozarks, and the "triangle" region of NC.

Did you like Tulsa? I'm considering lookin' for jobs KC and south central plains... :hmmm:

Tulsa is a great place to live. It's also very easy to navigate. Whoever planned the street layout is a genious(©CPS). All the streets East of Main are named after eastern cities and are in alphabetical order. Same with the streets West of Main. For example, Denver Street is the 4th street west of Main. It is a clean city and is relatively young being less than 100 years old.
