Hahahahahaha.

Matter of fact I was there after work yesterday buying a few things, bread, milk, etc. And now that you mention it, it seemed there was a remarkable amount of attractive specimens from the opposite sex walking around playing bumper carts.

I made a great post about walmart at WTB some time ago, and hearing you bring more information about walmart is music to my ears. I really don't like them nor do I like there stupid clan ritual they every dam morning. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. And Marshall, you are so right, Target much better store and doing well.

I have been buisy. Thats why I have not post allot in here lately like before. I have been repairing small engines and have been writting reviews, and at the same time have been working on my website. Soon, I will be doing my lawncare service too and probably my website will be put on hold for a while.

I do Marshall, but right now I am trying to sell the computers I have, and have not gotten any computer calls from cliants. My guess the calls will pick up more once summer comes around. Thats when peoples kids stay home for vecation and seriously screw up computers lol.

Unions are good for low wage earners like reatail employees. Having worked retail for 10 years as a part timer and manager in non union shops and as a manager and area manager in union shops, I must say the union shops provided people with raises, good benefits and some protection from abuses. The non-union shop stunk!!! People were fired at the drop of a hat and no matter how well a part timer performed they were not getting a raise. Period.

Now unions in other industries are another matter....but when Wal-Mart comes to a small town and shuts the ma and pa small business's down and only hires part time with out much in the way of decent benifits...unions are good.

I'm a card carrying Republican....but with my expieriences in Retail and what we all know about  Wal-Mart tells me that their employees need to organize!!! God Bless them and good luck !!!

The best thing to keep an engine in good shape is to starting it once a week all year long.
