    LOVE the lounge! Just dim the lights a bit by the piano. Very cool.

    Alex, I’ve been meaning to ask… Are you an architect? interior designer? furniture buyer for luxury hotels? How is it that you have so many fabulous pictures of such fabulous places to relax and chill out?

      Ison, so glad to catch you up here to report that our line dancing demo rocked the house! We had everyone moving. This was at a family community center event so there were people of all ages. I wish someone had thought to get video because a sweet toddler holding her grandpa’s hand to dance and giggling her head off, pulled away, ran in front of all of us to whirl around till she got dizzy and fell on her butt. She laughed even more when everyone stopped to applaud her performance

      She was the star of the whole show & a future line dancer, I’m sure! We had a great time & signed up more people for our group. It was so much fun!

      • isonprize

        See, THAT’S what I’m talking about. Dancing is fun, partner dancing, line dancing, dancing-dancing, doesn’t matter. Just keep it moving and have fun!!!

        AG911, ROCKIN’ THE HOUSE!!!

      Nope. I’m left-brained to a fault. I logically search on the internet for what I consider logically great spaces. Design is a right brain function. lol.

      Take the pop quiz. Which brain hemisphere, left or right is dominant for you?

    Evening guys. TGIF, but I go back to work tomorrow after 5 days of no work…ah well.

    In today’s issue of “No Shit Sherlock” news:

    “Queen Latifah Comes Out of the Closet (Finally)”

    Alright, give me a double shot of something.

    Well looks like that hospital job ain’t gonna be mine. My app still says under review since April 18th, but they reported the position again. So unless they are hiring 2 positions (which just doesn’t happen often in the Micro lab), then I ain’t got da job. Oh well, I’m gonna try on Monday to call the HR dept but I suspect the fat lady has sung on that job.

    My sister thinks its racial (she thinks everything is…lol), I think it was because of the pay. Their loss though, I’m a DAMN good Micro tech.

    I like tequila but I will abstain tonight because tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo celebrations & I can’t wait for my brother-in-law’s margaritas from heaven. He makes the best & he has his secrets that he tells no one.

    We will have food, drink, music, dancing. I can’t wait. The best thing is that our youngest brother who has been away working with DWB will be home for a few weeks rest. Family is just everything in the world to me.

    Adios, mi amigos & enjoy your evening.

  • Worldwatcher7

    Thanks for the lovely recipes, can’t wait to try them tomorrow. To honor Cinco de Mayo, I offer a brief Tequila digest.

    – – – -VIDEO: GOP voter registration firm turns in 1000s of “invalid” registration forms in California – – –

    – – – - – – – – -SKIP – —
    In my own post, I discussed voter suppression by way of Voter I.D. registration laws, and of course, the GOP’s accusations of nearly non-existent voter fraud that they’re using as an excuse to disenfranchise (mostly) Democratic voters.

    – – -THIS – —>Maybe they should start policing those in their own party, because if anyone is committing voter fraud, it’s Republicans:

    [T]he California Secretary of State’s Election Fraud Division is now reportedly investigating a firmed hired by the Sacramento County Republican Party said to have submitted thousands of fraudulent voter registration forms.

    According to a report today from Sacramento ABC affiliate News10, a private, for-profit firm calling itself Momentum Political Services, hired by the local Republican Party “to boost GOP registration ranks in key battleground communities” has turned in more than 3,100 hundred invalid voter registration cards during their recent drive.

    LOL – — - Voter registration forms have allegedly been turned in with fake addresses, voter names that don’t exist, duplicate Social Security numbers, and party affiliations that seem to have been changed “by someone” to Republican. The head of the firm has admitted she has hired workers with criminal backgrounds, as found via Craigslist.

    – – – —BWAHAHAHA!! – – – –
