We got a 2% COLA raise by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #2 Tue Jul 19, 2011 at 12:22:09 PM EST
for the first time since 2008. It was due in April, but was pushed back to July for some odd reason.

Harry Potter and the Gratuitous Six-Pack Scene

I guess while they were on the run, camping out in the woods, etc., he had a lot of time to do crunches.  They just never showed it.

was the gentle way my son's OT broke me into the realization that my son had Aspergers.

It's a fantastic book. I've heard that it is to be made into a movie, but I don't know when.


A purpose gives you a reason to wake up every morning.
