Re: GIGO

t you're serious about being a data analyst you need to change that attitude. A good 20% of the job is figuring out what the client needs by what they ask for and the two hardly ever line up. You need to know why they need the data and use your [more]

Re: "Group" gifts (a rant)

Every year, the support staff pitches in to purchase a gift for myself and my 2 other colleagues. We all work for the same department and though I am in a position higher than them, it is not like they report to me. I do not hire them, pay them, [more]

Re: 52 week challenge - week 20 - vkg

I personally think that decluttering is difficult BECAUSE you have to make so many decisions. This is why I've found that it simply doesn't work for me to do things like spend a whole day decluttering. I usually will commit somewhere between 15 [more]

Re: Progress!

Do you feel more at ease or calm when things are less cluttered?

Oh, heavens yes!

Progress!

Hi all!

I haven't posted on this board much in a long time but figured I'd pop in today.

As some of you may know, I lost my husband about 4.5 years ago. I stayed in our home after his death. I've gotten rid of a lot of his things, [more]

Re: Feeling Pretty Good

Do most PF's even have a pull up bar?

No clue if they do, though if they do not then they are even more useless than I thought.

That said, a pullup bar is not that hard to install in a garage and have at home.

Re: Can Darwin and Eden Coexist?

I'll say what my very wise cousin has told more than one person....

Re: End of week 1

I'd suggest making sure that the *fabric* on your socks is appropriate as well as the cushioning. I remember a few years ago when I started trying to walk a lot more to train for a half-marathon, I got horrible terrible blisters because my socks had [more]

Re: Feeling Pretty Good

I guess it all depends on what kind of results you want. I know from previous experience, I get the body I want through cardio and body weight exercises (squats, kicks, push-ups, and planks). I do not care to lift weights very much and am not [more]

Re: Feeling Pretty Good

I am really glad you are happy with your gym/trainer/methods but you really should stop ragging on those you feel beneath you. It is off putting to say the least.

Re: Price of ground beef. What is it near you?

"Baseless attacks"? Hey, I never "attacked" them! :) I only said that we do not shop there, and that not ALL their items are cheaper than you can get elsewhere, especially with sales and coupons. That's all.

Re: Price of ground beef. What is it near you?

We never shop in Walmart, either, for various reasons. People need to realize that places like Walmart, like many stores, use "grabbers" to get you into the store. If you buy ONLY those items, you can save bucks, but they know many [more]

Update on Me

Musings about a favorite athlete

Hey all,

I have to say, one of the nicest things about not working full time right now is being able to write again. I wrote an article about a favorite athlete of mine who competed this weekend in the CrossFit regionals and I thought some [more]

Bad News:
Found out last night they are going with another candidate for that job I interviewed for last week. I'm a little disappointed, but it's OK.

Good News:
