Sheesh it's hot!

Did we experience Spring? I don't think so! Summer seems to be here as it was 97 degrees today.

Notes from the Home Front

Busy day today. Went grocery shopping and made a few other stops. Why is it that when in the grocery store and the lines are long, no one sees fit to open a few more? The customers behind me had ice cream in their cart, just like I did. I swear it was melting during the 15 minutes on the line. In the summer, it's good to take an insulated bag with ice packs in it for ice cream and other such frozen foods.

This article - Disturbing Job Ads: 'The Unemployed Will Not Be Considered - is just as it says. Disturbing! Appalling! Who do they think they are? Read about the companies who are making this a practice, then BOYCOTT them. Teach them a real lesson! We are more than qualified, hard working people who need and WANT a job. The offensive article can be found here.

Just as we have known, this article thinks they are telling us something new. U.S. Adds Jobs in May, but Private Hiring Disappoints The jobs that were added were those part time Census jobs - again government jobs. It's time to make a comment by going to the story.
