Re: Garden Club - January 2019

Good morning, Garden Crew!!

Enjoy your Friday!!👍

😊

ETA: On a Credit note: Got an alert that a collection just dropped from my EX report. Gave me +12pts!!!!! 😀....unfortunately, I’m sure it’ll return😔. It’s one of my 2019 goals to PFD so, it’ll be short lived I’m sure. At least I know what to expect once it’s gone!!🤣 That’s a PLUS!!

Actually.  It's quite tasty depending on the preparation:

Option 1: Warmed and drowned in melted cheese

Option 2: Raw dipped in ranch or melted cheese


IMO cauliflower takes on the taste of whatever it is cooked with, covered or dipped in.   It has very little taste of it's own, I believe it is the texture that many people don't like.

Working 7 days a week?! I couldn’t do it, no matter what it paid off. Yikes!


I envy your innocence. I truly do.


I don’t know about innocence so much as stubbornness. I always managed to get out of mandatory overtime if it meant I had to work 7 days because if I don’t have a down day to recuperate from the work week, my productivity and attitude spiral quickly. I’m not built to just work, I need a balance. 

 

I did almost as poorly with split days off as I did working 7 days straight. 


You're lucky to even have the option of avoiding overtime and straight days working in whatever profession/job you have. Some people decidely cannot decide whether to work on schedules like that whether it's voluntarily or politely requested hence my "innocence" comment there. I do acknowledge that schedules like that are not for everyone but again some people don't have a choice in the matter.


I was working 60-80 hour weeks, 6-7 days, during the holidays.


I normally work about 5 hours of OT per week.   That isn't bad at all and bumps the paycheck a little.   There are times when I work 60 hours a week and that gets to be a little much if it goes on for more than a couple of weeks.

 

I am spoiled now I used to work 60+ on a regular basis and since I was slaried I didn't get any extra pay for it.  I much prefer my job now.

We got pearl cluthers and purse clutchers. What else are people clutching?


At least 2 of the 5 things we don't talk about?


Either my math is wrong or some of you are really weird


We all know you don't do math thats why Remedios still dosen't have an Amex.

Cauliflower is my 2nd or 3rd favorite veggie (after zucchini... and maybe artichokes).   


Just saw one of my colleagues have General Tso's Cauliflower with her lunch the other day. She told me that it tasted like General Tso's Chicken. It looked a lot like it as well. The only problem is that the sauce typically has a lot of sugar, so that's a no-no for me.  

Lost the playoff game, but still in the 2018 All-America Team for Bad Gardners...

I've never had problems with self-checkout at other places, but I don't shop there.  Oh, were you talking about the Instant Pot?  No cause for alarm, there's like 10 different safety mechanisms on those things.  Just make sure you spin the knob up top to "seal" before starting it, and if you decide to do a quick release, use a pot holder to spin that same knob to "release" and keep the rest of your body far away from the steam that is going to come out.  Instant Pot is very, very safe.  Much safer than Walmart.

Well, there are only few of us in the garden without one, so it's kinda a joke. I cannot remember exactly how it started, tho. I think during one NyQuil fueled night, I might have said *I'm drop dead gorgeous without one*.

NyQuil+Typing=Double Bad.

 

I dont want one because core revolves are bleh, and I have not decided yet on cobranded card.

Everything else requires math and I dont math. 

Also, I am in a dog house with all the new accounts for the time being.

 

Plus, I dont need their TY points smiley-laughing021.gif
