Clearly this is not a choice your mother would have made. By age ten, in that day if you could read, write and do some basic math they figured you were educated enough. It took entire families working together to ensure survival. This is what I mean when I say that poverty is part choice and part circumstance.
My grandfather left my grand mother with eight children. Four boys and four girls. My mother left her one room school house in eighth grade. She worked the fields also and followed my grandmother to the tops of ridges and down through hollows gathering herbs and such to sell at the market and to make medicine. If there was any such thing as welfare then they did not know it.
My mother and her family would have starved and died, and still would have asked for no help.Poor, sure, but they had plenty of pride.

Because even they know when a dog shits in the yard, no matter how much cherry syrup you pour on it, you still have a big, fresh, steamy, not too hard, not too soft, pile of crap.
Unfortunately, the democrats and liberals were able to convince the rest of their constituents that the cherry syrup was a good idea. So the rest of ya'll will have to take a bite.
Enjoy, my wife and I will be watching from Adara as we make more money, buying seven's company out and terminating his employment.
oh my.

You are half way there. Now they know that you cannot be buffaloed with BS and that you will not roll over. Dealing with the adjuster will likely be just as demanding.
Document everythig with copies, names, dates, details of conversations , etc. just in case you end up needing the help of the NC Attorney Generals consumer protection division in Raleigh. Be prepared to fight with them for years if necessary. If you cannot settle within 18 months, get an attorney so you can still file suit against the bastards.

TSF, miracles do happen. I got a call pretty early this morning and the adjuster confirmed there is coverage for the problem. The heat pump was serviced and after that it went down hill. They can settle the blame game but the insurance company is going to send out a cleaning service today because they did find out all the materials that came through the vents is toxic and we have sick people living here, which could be an even bigger problem for them. I will defer to Silver as he was a fireman before that I had no idea a heat pump could cause so much damage when it blows and basically causes a fire within the duct work. We look like we've been working in the coal mines. I had already taken down times, and names of everyone I spoke to and it's not over yet, so I'm holding on to my notes until all this is settled. Just made me mad that if my dad had tried to settle this on his own, they would have given him the runaround and cost him a lot of money. I told the last guy yesterday, my dad pays for insurance and it's a service and they needed to pay for the service he's been paying many a year on and do what was right or I'd make it right. We will have to be "displaced" for a couple of days, which is covered and we're all good with this too. Keep your fingers crossed because it ain't over til it's over!!!

TSF, to be brutally honest, I see this behavior in Americans of both political parties, emotion rules over facts, look at the political ads which cater to the basest of human emotions, twisting and manipulating the truth to garner votes.

New drones are being developed that can not only spy without being detected, but can kill without being detected, while already here in Texas police can monitor people as they download on their computers, allegedly to catch illegal types of content.It always is done for the greater"good".

I listen to talk radio here and there. Mostly it's depressing, but I wanted to share what I was hearing; about Obama Care. Did you know that if you are a pre transplant patient on Medicare, that when you receive your transplant, you will no longer have Medicare?

Ok guys, I have found me a fellow, redneck racing buddy. You all will have to get used to it, but there's one question that REALLY matters--Spoon, who is your favorite basketball team??? This could win or lose you friends, just kidding, maybe.
LoL! I'm any fan with speed. Short tracks are too slow and I get bored watching after a while. OK, Basketball? Here goes. The The L a k e r s? I'm afraid to say it. I don't watch much Basketball during the few weeks before Nascar. I like Football and I'am a die hard Clemson fan. I like Golf, watching it sometimes on tv and that's pretty much it.

I'm a Survivor fan too. NCIS is a must. I love the country and farms, mostly horses and cows and listening to Zac Brown, The Foundation. Nothing is better than that and ice tea.

Did anyone see Mooonshiners last night? It was really good. It's raining and cool here and it reminds me of mountain weather. My time is up and I have to go.

Have a Good Day all!

Sun Tzu says, never underestimate your enemy.It is far better, that your enemy should instead underestimate you.We underestimated our enemy, in the Benghazi fiasco.Hopefully, we have learned from this.Far too late, I might add, for the Americans butchered in the attack.

What in hell are you babbling about now? Is everything a conspiracy with you? Take off the tin hat and come out of your bunker.

Wow, I was shocked to find out how much money the Scientologists contributed to the Democratic party.As for Waco, I assume the deaths of all those children was simply a horrible accident.

Didn't you hear? The government had to kill the children by burning them alive to save them from "abuse".

Gee Seven, what is Bible camp a week or two? Scientologists are die hards and from what I've read from some people in Hollywood that broke ties with them, they make bible camp look downright fun. Bible camp, 2 weeks, Scientologists-lifers.
I am not defending Scientologist as they are following myths just as Christians are, but if you wish us to believe the kids at bible camp are not lifers.......

No one is forcing these people to do this, so the right to religious freedom must be upheld. Unlike Waco, no illegal weapons are involved with either bible camp or Scientologists. Are they all a bunch of brainwashed sheep? Yes.

And the criteria here is astonishing. It isn't even imminent plot" - Charles Krauthammer referencing the Obama drone warfare.
Oh, so now the war on terror is bothering you? Great, now the democrats can call the republicans the weak ones who will not stand up to the terrorists. Enjoy your time out of power.

Your opinion, right? Well, I don't agree, but I'll defend to the death your right to state your opinion.

One of the good things about this country, is that its possible to state an opinion, without going to prison for that opinion.At least for now, in any event.
