***We're having our kitchen painted, new lighting put in, and cabinets sanded and painted. Darnit, I meant to take a "before" picture. It's always exciting to re-do a room. It's certainly going to force me to clean out and organize my cabinets, the contents of them are all over the family room, living room, and Johnny's room. What a mess! It'll be worth it, though.

***Have you heard about the "toxic tush" case?
***Strange but true:
An unnamed German man retired at age 65 when his civil service position was eliminated. In an email letter addressed to his colleagues in the city of Menden, he boasted that he had done no actual work since 1998. However, in that time he had gone to his office and collected 745,000 euros ($980,000) in pay from the municipal state surveyor's office. He blamed the waste on authorities who hired another surveyor to do the same job, leaving him with nothing to do. The man had been in the same job since 1974. Mayor Volker Fleige was upset when he received the email, and said the employee had never once complained before now.
It would probably shock us to learn how many American government workers are in the same position.
