babe, this is why this thread is here. When you feel bd, we feel bad and if we can help by just listening, we will. Remember you are part of the DC family and we do care about you. So if you feel like it, lay down on the floor, kick you feet and yell to high heaven, then sit up and know we love you.

I second that! We're here for you Babe. I know I've done my fair share of venting, and that is because I can. I feel comfortable sharing my woes with you all because you are family.

for the past two weeks, my internet provider basically has not been working for much of the day....I can get a connection in the early mornings and early evenings....either it is too cloudy, too sunny, too windy, too dark, too rainy or too pretty, to get all the lights on the tower to stay lit. We have Hughes.net. I see that dh has put on his calendar to check out a cell phone service for our internet connection when he gets back...it's been kinda rough not having use of the computer for much of the time..

A local chain restaurant (you know the one, the one with the fruit and insect in its name, which is already horrible, IMO), just got themselves on a lot of folk's "never go there again" list.
Friends had recently taken their two young children there to celebrate the youngest's birthday. She was soooo looking forward to the staff singing "Happy Birthday" to her. Guess what? The staff refused, saying they were only a party of four and they only sing for parties of 6 or more.
The girl was broken hearted. She also has autism.
This was cruel on the part of that staff, IMO. I've only eaten there a few times, and the food and service were never good. Now I have even more reason to never step foot in there again.

Fruit and insect? I actually don't know which one that is, PM me if you don't want to post it so I don't inadvertently visit one.

We have been having computer problems - I was on the phone quite a while and really didn't get things going right. Sometimes I get thru and other times everything seems to hang. Not fun at all.

We eat at one in a neighboring town (over 2 hours away), and it's always enjoyable.
