I'm not sure how active it is still with the way things have been scaling back.I think there's a Naval Warfare facility just north of Norco, IIRC..
Told my boss that it was time for his wife to go back to work. His oldest can take care of his youngest.My generation (born late 70's early 80's) was told pretty clearly we weren't special and were actually sort of insignificant. We were latchkey kids. We learned to cook and take care of ourselves because our parents weren't home.
When I was young I felt ripped off I didn't get a "good" childhood.
In retrospect maybe it was for the best. It made me and a lot of the people I know very strong and resilient.
I had to follow the advice from the Viagra commercials on TV, I had an erection that lasted over 4 hours, had to call my doctor, as it could be a sign of a medical emergency.
Told my boss that it was time for his wife to go back to work. His oldest can take care of his youngest.
He was shocked that I would suggest that for a 9 year old.
WTF? When I was 9 I had already been walking myself to and from school for a year and was using power tools unattended.
A lot said in this thread that I could comment on, but I'll just focus on this. I've thought about this for years, and reminds me of the "best version of myself" and "accept myself" and "love myself for who I am" type of mantras. I do think that we should strive to love ourselves, but that doesn't mean loving ourselves or accepting ourselves with no regard to our flaws. It should mean taking a good, long look at ourselves, seeing the good and the bad, and striving to be the kind of person that we want to love, striving to be the kind of person that we can be proud of being. Too often it seems like this mindset just means that people don't actually try to improve themselves or admit their character flaws, it goes from "this is the way I am and I'm worthy of love and acceptance" to "this is just the way I am and I'm not going to change so deal with it."yeah I agree with that. I just think in the older days 'the individual' wasn't such a selfish asshole.
Maybe they were there to clean out the rare whisky kiosk. You know, where they keep the $1,000, 25 year old Single Malt and rare brandy?Back in the days when masks were mandated inside here, I went to my favorite liquor store with mask, sun glasses and a driver’s cap low on my forehead. Now, the guys there are my friends — I am a regular. But just for funny’s I said “cash drawer open and hands up!”. They said “go ahead, but there is nothing in the cash drawer!” You see, everybody there pays via CC, and so do I! So robbing that store would have yielded $0! Of course, this was all a joke, except the part about the empty cash drawer — that is truth.
