    This IS Texas, Judg! I believe we have the largest percentage of our population incarcerated, and someone's got to judge them. (Yes, isn't that the statistic you want your state to be at the head of!)

    Well, he's been called to city, county, and TRUANCY court. Never has had to serve yet.

    They PAY you for babysitting!?! Where the heck...oh, right...Canada, the civilized place.

    Maybe you'll get cancelled. That happens to me all of the time. But maybe you want to go? You get paid, yes? I used to like to do it once in a blue moon - it was so different than what I usually do. I never get picked for a jury. A lawyer friend told me I'm a nightmare - an educated professional woman.

    I never get picked, either.. That's why it's such a pain, and oh, the parking nightmare.

    Same here. Except, in a way, I'm worse. Most lawyers do NOT want an engineer, as we "have no feelings to be swayed." It's all facts and logic with us. Add to that educated and female... yeah.

    Oh yeah, NO WAY, a female scientist? You're too smart and you think too much. And you have letters after your name to prove it!

    Most lawyers don't recognize EIT. Most recognize PE, which is the big leap to legally being an engineer.

    I wouldn't mind serving. I would feel like a good citizen. I am probably their dream juror: a gullible housewife. The pay is paltry- I think $6 per day. It would just about cover the gas.

    I just called too. I have to call in the night before to see if my juror number is required to come in. I happen to be #369 so the likelyhood of having to go in is very small. I don't want to do it. Serving on the Grand Jury a few years back was traumatic enough! Drug dealers, incest, rape and robbery............... what is wrong with these people? I don't care to be slapped in the face with the dredges of the american society. Its depressing.

    Curious - how do you prepare your "kale with onions and turkey broth"? I have all the ingredients and have no clue what to do with the kale...

    I heat up some bacon grease in the pan, saute some onion, and while that is going, wash the kale and strip the greens off the stems. Chop the stems into dice and throw them in with the onions. When they're good and soft, add the kale leaves, still with water clinging to them. Add the broth(about 1/2-1C per bunch of kale), cover, and let it cook over very low heat, for about an hour, stirring occasionally, and adding more liquid to keep them moist as needed. I like to have a little 'pot liquor' in the pan when they're ready to eat. Delicious, especially with an over-easy egg on top. A bunch of kale makes enough for three servings for me, or one side dish for our family of four, none of whom like kale as much as I do, but all of whom eat their small serving with good grace.
