k. jobless once again

Guess i have time to make an entry now that i'm once again searching for income.
It sure isn't like the old days when you could just walk in a business and meet someone face to face and apply for a job. I really dislike the impersonal web entry process. How do I even know they got it? Also what's up with the "keyword" thing? They don't look at your application if you haven't entered the correct keyword that the computer recognizes and so will forward to H.R.-what is that??

Well, this last job as a...educational scholastic evaluater, as i call it(scorer) was interesting. At least I know it's not just me. There were lawyers, teachers, professors, scientists, all looking for work, and that $12/hr. job is what 300 of us found. You had to have a degree to even apply for the position and not only take a test to get in, also a test every day to qualify...what do those with a high school degree or not even that do? How do people who live "in the circle" of Atlanta survive, it's so expensive...

I'm loving the Derm Blog.
Free information from a real dermatologist!
He's helped me have flawless skin and remain educated on the skin front.
Now that I've stopped with the washing face with towel and using soap in morning (along with regimine) I have NO pimples. LOOOOVE Yawl!

Happy Earth Day!!! Save money

Whole Fopds no longer uses plastic bags, but they do brown bag you if
you don't have your own or don't want to buy their 99 cent reusable bag.
You can get .10 cents back on every bag you bring in and use though,
so when you get home don't throw it away! Don't refuse, Reuse;)

NOW conference

National organization of women had a conference I shot in Atlanta. I

thing. I'm surprised myself.

Atlanta Dogwood festival 08

Whoever thought it was a good idea to move this to Lenox Mall needs a
new job. I'm still shaking from the parking nightmare.

All the tents were set in the front and south parking lots.

Didn't see any Dogwood trees....

..however, there was lots of rain.

Drought proof- no water bills!

The Stonehurst Place Bed and Breakfast on Piedmont Ave. is undergoing renovations to be more environmentally friendly.

Beside the house the tanks will be filled underground.

They are installing a water reclaiming system that requires installation of two 1700 water tanks. The tanks will be covered by dirt and cement and will look like a normal driveway that nobody from above the ground will be able to tell the difference outside. The tanks will filter rain water and heat it with solar heaters, when the process is done, the water will be cleaner than ordinary tap water. The cost...estimated at $150,000. ....but no more water bills!

The hole is measured for depth and level accuracy.

The water tanks.

A television program shoots a spot "in" the tanks.

Inside the glass surrounding the walls and ceiling tiles fall to 3 stories to the floors below them.

The $5000 member only club

Upstairs in Luckie across from the Aquarium.

It is TOTALLY cool lookin' up here. Unobstucted views of the city, the garage door that opens to the industrial/posh couches and modern chairs overlooking the view, and what must be THE world's largest fan above the bar in the picture above (no those aren't just criss-crossing beams, that is the fan). If you turn the fan on it would just barely miss the other beams in the place holding some of the many flat-screen tvs's surrounding you.

Still ain't shellin' out no $5000!

Stolen car leads to fatal accident.

crash scene                   

victim's car                     suspects car

I'm working a story today where 2 people driving in a stolen car (they
had several days), crashed into another vehicle. In the innocents' car
both people were killed. A man going to his cousin's after work, was
dropping his friend off first. Never made it to see his cousin.
The perpetrator's passenger was ejected and her head was found in the
middle of the road. The suspect was hospitalized for a shoulder injury.
Grandmother of the deceased, innocent driver says living car thief
driver should be punished as severly as possible.

Happy new year!

New Year's is also our wedding anniversary. Pricci decorated our dessert plates.

Dick and Ryan.

New Year!

It's a new year and I feel this will be a good one!
I don't make resolutions, so feel free to read on.
I did eat blackeyed peas and gari with pepper, so that's a good start. Some of you are like, what's gari? It's a ghanian meal, white, large granular stuff like cornmeal, but bigger in size...
Also drank mimosas made with mango juice, YUMMY! You got to try it.
Then vegged with sis and watched parade all day.
Last night someone should've told Dick Clark to stay at home or not open his mouth if he get on television. He looked the same, but sounded HORRIBLE! Every time he opened his mouth to say some unintelligible whatever, It was like the grim reaper was offing him as we watched. ILK. Tell him to stay home next year, poor geezer.
Jermaine Dupri, shame on you! Using the Jacksons to make a quick buck. Of course Michael was a no-show. Janet stayed on a sofa, melting into the cushions. The "Jackson 5" stood onstage for about a minute and shook hands with 4 people while looking like they wanted to be glad I stayed home and watched fireworks from my balcony in my pajamas.
