Out of the Blue

I've mentioned in the past this is a sleepy little town, but we have this one local shopping center that hasn't enough spots in the parking lot to accommodate busy days. It turns out yesterday was such a day, and after being forced to experience this, I am convinced this parking lot may be the most dangerous bit of road in the entire area. It also gets nasty, and I've actually heard blue language from blue-haired ladies out there.

PS Tab focus fix from e-mail to password field, instead of e-mail field to Preview Message button..?
Tab order wasn't defined for the email & password fields, since one never needs to touch them after entering them the first time and checking the Remember box. Also, going directly from the Subject & Message fields to the Preview & Post buttons was an earlier request.

I now added the Email/Password/Remember fields to the focus sequence, but after the Post button.

the sad part is.... no one really cares about how corrupt our Governments are. Both Canada and the U.S.. At best? They`ll make a movie about it. Peeps `ll be intrigued and highly entertained.

I hate driving all year, but this year has been particularly bad. The wonderful Minnesota town I work in, despite lots of snow, seems to have decided that plowing roads is for sissies this year. Add to that the incredible crush of holiday traffic, that most people are still driving SUV's too big for road lanes, and a complete lack of parking even in dry weather...

Forget parking, I hate just DRIVING this time of the year.

Anybody else read that as "DRMING"?? I've been reading these message boards way too much...

Forget parking, I hate just DRIVING this time of the year. People are running around like idiots (both in and out of their vehicles) and causing accidents. I had about 4 near misses yesterday, and this was just IN TOWN.

I try to get me shopping done by now and stay in as much as possible.

Grocery store carries Hallmark!

And it better be a Hallmark, cause remember what a bastard you'll feel like when they look at the back of the card and don't see the logo. *believes everything he sees on TV*

The old lady went to a place near us, and said there was zero parking, the closest parking to this little mall was 3 blocks away - and all she needed was some x-mas cards. insane.

I worked IT just long enough (probably my second day on the job)to know how necessary the phrase "Is it turned on?", really is.

Which is why I generally avoid malls like the plague during this time of year, if I can...

Yeah, every time I go out shopping to B&M stores all I can think is "Merry Fing Christmas to you too". Seems like people are so focused on buying crap that they forget the whole spirit of the season, no matter what holiday you're celebrating!

Your fascination and experience with dangerous roads is almost humorous, if I didn't worry about you having a wreck every time you bring one up.

Was thinking the same and this even make it highly likely they took out Kennedy too, but don't have this much evidence (yet?) in the public.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

That Patton stuff is wild. The article says that OSS leaders wanted Patton dead. But who was ordering them? Truman? Eisenhower? Or were they rogue?
