    Creper,
    Again, thanks for the suggestions and concerns.
    We have been through numerous counseling sessions with her and she on her own. All has been discussed from self-esteem problems to depression. All involved came to the conclusion that she has been allowed to be lazy.
    As someone has stated here, we have been told to stop giving and start demanding.
    I am beginning to believe the 12 step program may be the way to go. It is about 12 steps from the front door to the curb.

    Persh,
    Thanks for your suggestion, been there done that. Last January set here up with an apartment, I paid her first and last month's rent, she got fired from her job, blew up the engine in the car I co-signed for her ( of which she hasn't made a payment on for 7 months now) and was then evicted.

    I then lent her my truck I use for firewood (an old beater as the kids call it)which she then used to trim off the side of a telephone pole.

    Now she is walking or bumming rides to a part time job at a deli.

    Wits end sir,

    Creper,
    Thank you so much for your input. We have done what you have suggested on several different occasions.

    One of the problems is my wife's apron strings are made out of Kevlar.

    We both know it is in daughters best interest to give her the boot but it is just not that simple.

    Again, thanks for sharing your experience.

    BTW, my 22 yearold daughter who is giving me fits was made in America,

    anyone want to make me an offer,

    doesn't work very well, stays up all night, sleeps all day, does nothing around the homestead, does have a good appetite though,

    perplexed in Pa,

    Much to Kiki's dismay this notion is becoming increasingly difficult.

    Who made the microwave that is in your kitchen

    Who made the TV (TV's) that are in your house

    The engine that is in your GM or Ford, mostly made in Canada

    Who made the shoes you are wearing right now,
    this list of questions could go on for days

    As stated, right now I own a Chevy SUV and two Ford trucks, yes the 85 MB I just bought is foriegn, got me there,

    I try to do my part, my kids were made in America

    MB Buds,
    Seems like all MB participants are at each others throats today.

    Reminds me of a phrase uttered years ago by a young black man, who months before had had butt kicked after a traffic stop,

    Can't we all just ..........

    nevermind,

    Fight nice,

    Kiki,
    My new (old) toy is indeed true, I drove it back from my recent vacation to Fla. where I picked it up in Hollywood Fla.

    Got around 21 mpg on way back to Pa and not a hint of trouble with anything mechanical.

    Not that I need to prove anything to you but I will now change the profile pic to show my grand-daughter in the passenger side in front of my house.

    More chart stuff ...

    pennirish7602 pennirish7602 Jul 10, 2006 2:47 PM Flag

    Ladybucks,
    That was exact thought for posting the 5 day chart.

    Buy at 3:00 pm, sell at 10:30 am if you have the "stones" to play the game,

    of course in your case it may be, have the "guts" to play the game

    I do not day trade anything (no stones, no money) so this is just my opinion

    Headwind,
    Look at the chart in five day mode, see a pattern,

    Pick any five days mostlikely the same, morning rise, afternoon fall,

    not much of a rollercoaster if you compare Monday opening to Friday close, week after week after weak, pun intended

    Kiki,
    I just bought a 1985 MB 380 SL that I found in Fla with only 60K miles on it.

    Way more than 4 years old and looks nearly showroom new. I am going to try and figure out how to post a pic to my profile.

    Thing runs like a dream, took it to a local car show Saturday for first time, took first place in foreign rag top class.

    BTW, my daily rides are a '03 Trailblazer EXT
    and a 2006 F250 4 door desiel, gas prices and global warming can't stop those buggers.

    LMAO,

    I had a co-worker do that one day in the lunch room many years ago, another employee (one without a sense of humor) reported him to HR and he was suspended for a day a and letter of reprimand was placed in his file.

    CAHprince,
    I agree with your evaluation. CAH would have gone after BAX years ago if they felt approval was even remotely possible.
    I was surprised they went after AEH at the price they paid, but it has certainly opened up new and different avenues over all.

    Xabt,
    Thank you for your concern, today should be the worst of it, Susquehanna expected to crest only 19 ft above flood stage at 6:00 pm tonight. At that level most of Harrisburg business district will be spared,

    My home and town came through fine, Harrisburg, Hershey, and Middletown getting the worst.

    Still dry,
