    i put a small pork roast in the crock pot late morning, and returned home to discover that it wasn't turned on. so i've had pork roast sitting out most of the day, and nothing for dinner.

    Wood burning fireplaces are illegal in Vegas. You have to have one that burns gas, but one month of those bills and you'll never light it again.

    The older houses are grandfathered in, and you have to pay a serious premium to get one that has it. I know a guy whose house burned to the ground - literally bulldozed it, but he kept the fireplace and rebuilt around it so he wouldn't have to have a gas one.

    I look around the store as I walk to the checkout with my single pair of pants and don't see any dudes likely to be wearing 32 waist pants.

    I wannna' know who keeps taking all the 32s.

    And, the smallest belt they have is a 32/36, which puts me straight to the last hole. I already have a belt like that, dammit!

    I didn't think to look in the boys dept. Maybe next time.
    I have a 36 inch inseam, and my waist has been decreasing, but I can never find a 36 length, they only go to 34s in most stores. So, of course...hey, let's try the big and tall section. Okay...36 length...38 waist...40 waist...42, 44, 46, 48, 50.....where's the stuff for the TALL people, not the BIG AND TALL people?

    So, of course I have to deal with just the 34 lengths. Shorts are so much easier to buy...I need to live someplace and work someplace where I can wear shorts all the time.

    you might try someplace like LL Bean or Lands End. You can get the waist and length you want. If you order from Lands End and it does not "fit" right, you just return them to a sears store. Their quality is very good as well.

    first time posting here but I have a gripe
    Was at the gas station this afternoon filling up when I look over and see a women parked in the middle of the gas station (between 2 rows of pumps) lighting up a cigarrett with 2 small children in the back seat while her husband puts some wiper fluid in the car. Oh and their was a gas tanker about 15 feet away filling up the gas station. It really urkes me when people can be so freaken stupid.

    i got a really great deal on a birthday present for my 2 year old, and it shipped to an old address 400 mi from my current location. apparently on ebay, there are numerous places to update old addresses, and i missed the right place.
