That's fine because as I already explained (and the gist was that) what you say doesn't count. :D


Who in their right mind uses a welcome sign to mean people who would come into their home uninvited, paid by their neighbors who are using their illegal labor, overrun the neighborhood, and refuse to leave?

Yet you keep responding. Are you in the habit of responding to those you believe don't matter?
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Then you'll see all the productive workers in Texas, and we'll be stuck with all state workers and welfare recipients.. We're almost there now...

My wife is a mercenary CPA/forensic accountant/ fixer of accounting problems, they have a team kind of like the A team with different skills, Same thing she did in California. She's got he finger on the pulse of the vibrancy of work flow, growth and success of the businesses that hire her and her team. She knows. They are booked up in way in advance and among the many differences between California and Texas she says the workforce is younger here, is more educated here, is more productive here, and they talk funny and the businesses for the most part are thriving and they can't find enough good people AND they pay at or above the pay scale that the struggling companies in OC/LA/SD would pay their employees

Maybe all the golf courses in Texas dried up and blew away.. :wink:
Funny, the OC Register fronted an article on vigilantes outing "water wasters" LINK posting people's images on web pages and snitching us off to the government, but not word one about golf courses. Mile Square course was gushing this morning the whole time I was at breakfast at Denney's across the street, a good solid hour starting at 6AM.. Might be a little soggy and the greens a bit slow.
I still don't understand how people can claim they play golf for fun and relaxation, yet get so steamed and frustrated at the same time. --:--
Strolling down at the beach and watching the bikini posers is more relaxing and the only frustration I feel is that I'm no longer 20.. :lol:
If I get steamed, there's always a quick cool off dip and catch a few waves.. Now that's relaxing..
BTW, here's to all the inlanders who play golf, Thanks for not coming to the beach.. :cheers:

Even worse, a lot of people in South OC pay over a hundred dollars a round to get steamed and frustrated. --:--

There's a bill in the state legislature that would force City Halls to keep their lawns as brown as they're asking us to keep ours. I heard a discussion about it on the radio a few days ago. One of the callers said Irvine's is one of the worst of them. She said she and some friends from work decided to eat their lunch on it once and got chased off. The motto the water conservation guest used was "if the only person who walks on it is the guy who mows it, it shouldn't be a lawn."
