out here you only get pissed if its a long "beeeeeeeeep" - maybe 5 seconds long. if it's a short burst of "beep beep beep" that probably means the guy knows you, and if its just a short singular burst "beep" that's a passive aggressive way of saying "can you please hurry up, you asshole?"

Around six months ago I wrote in the "pissed off" thread about my company being bought out and impending layoffs and salary cuts...and working under people with less experience and more arrogance.

I am happy to report that things are much brighter now. After the acquisition a lot of our key people quit and our business turned to shit...we went into the red for the first time in a decade. I was very tempted to jump ship but decided to wait until things were more clear. Thankfully, new senior management came into place and questioned why the acquisition ever happened, restructured so that our former president is back in charge and we are taking a leadership role in our business area.

Personally, it is looking like I played this really well by being patient and waiting out the transition and I am looking good to get a more senior role. I was able to forge some good relationships with key people in the new organization who will be reporting to me....and they announced today that our salaries are not getting touched.

Exhale.

uhm who the hell are you?

Guy who, despite bonus points for being a Tar Heel fan, seriously thinks *everything* is a conspiracy. His logic can be quite entertaining sometimes.

He usually stays in CE, but pokes his head up in CM every now and then.

I remember that during floods, it seemed people communicated via horns ONLY. laugh.gif

Aside from the fact that it's Friday (yay!), I've lost 5 pounds just in time for rotations this summer.

Vacation going well so far. Great weather, accommodations, and food. Really happy.

Is that pork belly?
post #32077 of 43624
A mix of belly and shoulder (butt) I just put down to simmer for 5-6 hours. Been out of rillettes for several weeks and needed to get a batch done.

I'm having my first drink since Wednesday.
post #32084 of 43624
so this happened:




Reds Eats near Boothbay on our way to Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park.

Lobster Rolls, Crab Roll, Shrimp, and Fried Zucchini.

The fried zucchini was actually great. The Lobster Rolls were excellent and almost too much. The best part (and worst part) was the shitty cold misty drizzle meant no lines.
