what... do you wanna know that force equals mass times acceleration?

I went to school for electronics, and that was a required course. I don't remember everything.

Oh, Timothy... You are the one I asked first. Is there a textbook you can recommend (or anyone?) that is like "physics for dummies"?

I'm sure you know more than I do about this subject, but like you, I'm fascinated.

My mother-in-law and I never really forged a relationship, but I will always keep her in my mind for saying, "Claire is a self-educated woman". She said it when she didn't know I was listening and with obvious pride. It gave me a warm fuzzy that we never otherwise achieved. Oh, I graduated from high school, in my day everyone did, period (draft, Vietnam war. If you dropped out of anything, you were toast!)

Why can't people who are paid to do a job do it!?

Seems like a fair trade off to me. I pay you. You just do the job. Simple enough.
I payed the supposed professionals good money for a job that I had to redo myself by hand. I can't stand to sew period, never have.

Hubby bought new uniforms. Sure they measured him for it. Not only did it take almost 2 weeks for them to get here, the alterations hadn't been done at all. They were still the same size as the ones he took off the rack.

I spent all weekend ( too many interruptions ) Altering them.

I didn't get mad until tonight. Finally finished them. All I had to do was press and I'd be free. Popped the breaker 5 times just to use my iron. Every time I turned it on. Out went the lights. I wanted to knock that person's lights out!

This is why I got kicked out of Home Ec... Temper, temper...

Sounds like a call should be placed to management on Monday. Very frustrating, especially when it's something you can do, but hate doing it. I think that's when I get the maddest over lack of service, when it's something I could do, but am willing to pay the extra to have someone else do it.

I wish I had that talent. I don't think I'd have the patience.

So I called yesterday--all I got was "when you were here, you should've done xxxx". Give me a break. This from my brother who hasn't been there for 2 years. I took my parents to my uncle's for his birthday--to The Lake where my mom spent time with her SIL...and I did clean the cupboards--it's been 6 months!!!

I am glad you called yesterday!

New Year ahead, let it go!

Your brother sounds like my sister. She has always been good about determining what I should do and not quite so good about determining what she should do. When my parents started to have problems with daily living I had to quietly explain to her that she needed to focus on what she could do to help them and I would do what I felt I could do. It did not change anything but, it made me feel better. It still amazes me that my brothers and sisters are exactly the same today as I remember them to be when we were growing up. Now they are just trapped in old wrinkly bodies.

Keep calling, and do what you can. It will be important to you in years to come.
