So I didn't see the usual hairdresser last night, I ended up with this sweet middle-aged lady I'd never seen before.  When I told her how much hair I wanted to cut off, she gasped, and I thought she was going to cry!  Long story short, I had about 2 or 3 inches trimmed off instead of 11 or 12.  :)  At least it looks much neater now.  I'll try again somewhere else in a month or two before the warm weather kicks in.  *Sigh*

Were you going to give your hair to locks of love? I believe the length has to be at least 8 inches. I betcha could do better. And if it's colored, it's ok, they sell it and use the proceeds for more wig makin...awesome!

Hi guys! I can't believe the week is finally over!!!!

I'll be off to catch up where I left off, but I wanted to share this first.
I had my performance review today. It turned out to be a great review...waaaaay better than I thought it would go. However, the comment our CIO made on the very first evaluation item had me thinking it might not be going well.

I have pasted an excerpt below. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.


"Yobbery has taken ownership for the wireless project at Mordor.  He is directing his staff appropriately to ensure that tasks are completed appropriately.  Yobbery shares his expertise and has proven to be an asses to the wireless team as well as Mordor."

John Buck 41: Well, I told you folks that we were going car-shopping on Tuesday. Went to our bank. They wouldn't do a thing for us til we came back with a vehicle we had picked out. I told them I wasn't thrilled about spending all day kicking tires and then getting turned down for a loan. So we left and went to a local Toyota dealership. Cut to the chase---we ended up driving away with a 2013 Toyota Corolla w/0% financing. We got a modest break because I work for a Toyota supplier and also saved some $$ by choosing a 5 speed manual in lieu of an automatic transmission.

First NEW car I bought since 1988.

Very nice. You'll get better gas mileage with a manual plus less of a chance of some one stealing it cause most people nowadays can't drive a stick!

I've heard that with the advances in automatic transformer technology your 1st point might not apply, but your 2nd point definitely does!


IMHO, CVT (shiftless) is the way to go for gas mileage. It just seems like an all around better performer. If you're light on the pedal you can cruise around and keep the rpms really low, and when you want quick pickup you get it immediately from any speed.

Some people really dislike them though...It doesn't behave like a regular automatic and you need to get past the initial feeling that the transmission is slipping.

Sounds like what happens to me when I decide to donate my hair (done it 3 times now).  I guess some people just can't rationalize getting rid of that much hair at once.  I'm with you though, I'm getting rid of all of mine before the summer months as well.

Forgive the off topic rant: Locks of Love, while not a scam, does not do what people think they do. Locks of Love sells all the hair they receive then they charge families for wigs for kids with alopecia (not cancer). Pantene Beautiful Lengths works with the American Cancer Society to provide free wigs for cancer patients. Neither will accept dyed hair or hair that is more than 5% gray and will destroy any donations that fall into either category.

I think that's what my Rogue is. I've had a highline Neon (sport package), a Monte Carlo SS (God I loved that car), and an Escape and this definately shifts differently!

I had about 6 inches of hair cut off last Saturday. When your hair gets caught in the seat belt, you know it's time to get it cut!

gremlin1: It has been snowing off and on most of the day, not real heavy , just light and fluffy. Jack has been loving it, running all over the backyard and diving into the snow and acting like the puppy he was at one time.Gremie has been sitting on the bureau in the bedroom looking out at Jack as he runs thru the snow.
I always know when Jack is heading back to the house because Gremie jumps to the floor "thud""ow" and runs thru the house at high speed heading for the backdoor , yelling "Hurry up the dog wants in" or something like it in catspeak. Gremie runs into the kitchen and hits the backdoor hanging to the window by his toenails. Jack is usually scratch at the door about then.
I have to convince Gremie that he has to let go of the door to let "his dog" in. Once Jack gets back in the house he gets a lecture from Gremie about the evils of snow and he has to put up with Gremie cleaning him up while I wipe him down.
This is a scene that is constantly repeated in my house during the winter and it never fails to make me laugh.

I have thought about donating my hair in the past, but was told it needs to be very healthy and never permed or coloured.  I've always had a problem with split ends and dry hair, and used to colour it quite often.  My current batch of hair hasn't been coloured at all but there are certainly a few grays sneaking in there, and plenty of split ends.  I've thought about trying to make something out of my hair myself (sew it inside the brim of a hat or something) then personally donating it to someone who needs hair enough that they don't care it isn't grade A hair, but just haven't had the energy.  Probably don't have the sewing skills either.  That may change.  You never know.  :op

LOL!  Or gets caught in the car door, or zipped in your jacket, or tucked into your pants, or the dog has to poop out a whole "necklace" because he swallowed one of your hairs and it won't break off....  :op

I'm generally a procrastinator about most things, plus not a lot of money to throw around, so I usually just get a haircut when it becomes intolerable.

syzygy whizz: Sciatica IS a whole lot of not-at-all fun...Accident may be quicker (one session of fall-down-go-boom and you're cured!), but by the very nature of the process there's not a whole lot of control over what, where, when and/or any collateral damage occurring in the process.


True. My doc said he had seen it happen before, something about how a sudden motion/movement/fall will realign the sciatic nerve, but he rarely saw it without other injuries being inflicted as a result. Truthfully, I'm lucky that I did not break something after going down that long flight of wooden stairs and landing on a slate floor.

Yep, the Rogue has a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). It's hard to describe, but if you pay attention it's not really shifting, but smoothly choosing from a theoretically infinite number of gear ratios based on engine power and the position of the gas pedal. A conventional transmission is very similar but has a fixed number of gear ratios (most commonly 4 or 5.)

I guess it's easiest to think of it as a conventional transmission with a whole bunch of gear ratios.

Found the tale!  It may have been subbied & failed, tho not sure I see how it woulda  failed.
Caffrey, Amazing 2legged Cat, seen by me as lead tale/tail in LoveMeow #160
Feb 10, 2013 from DailyMail
Caffrey a black Persian cat is very special. He is only left with two legs both on the right side. The 13 year old strong-willed cat is able to walk and live a normal life despite having only two legs.
When he was three years old, he lost his left hind leg in a car accident. "After £3,500 worth of operations, he battled on with his life," reported
For the next 10 years, Caffrey lived with three legs so well that he never felt any different. Then one day, they discovered a malignant growth on his left front leg. "His owner Sue Greaves, 58, couldn't bear to have him put down or put him through the pain of chemotherapy with no guarantee of success," so they had the leg amputated with another £4,000 operation.
"When her vet sought opinions from four colleagues, all said it shouldn't be done. They insisted he would be unable to walk and his life would not be worth living." But Caffrey amazed them all when he started running around, bounding about in their garden. He defied what others thought about him and managed to lead a normal life despite having no left-side legs.He walks on two legs on the same side
438 comments to date on Daily Mail where this came up.
Read full tale, see all fotos + :56 video at http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2275887/Caffrey-amazing-moggi e -survives-legs--theyre-side.html#ixzz2Lffwxana
copied linkie from foot it on Daily Mail  site.  Caffrey is quite a handsome cat, even tho not all there any more.
Copied 5 fotos, none of which'll upload because imgur's now in Overload & they run about with hair on fire.

Caffrey tale poured in at ft of pg 4, with sentence cut near end:
"After £3,500 worth of operations, he battled on with his life," reported the Daily Mail.

imgur seems back, but has lost my continuing log-in.

There's a good lookin' foto titled something like You can see Toronto skyline in cat's eye.  Profile of a brown tabby.  Didn't get to see who fetched.
