  1. Here is something that if they catch me off guard will have me jumping out of my skin.. They are a beautiful bug to see, once I settle down from coming across one.. This is like the toughest bug around here that nothing will mess with.. Frogs are about the only thing that will eat them, then spit them back out, then they are off and running again, because they don't die after the frog eats them.. hehehe The Red Velvet Ant, which is actually a wasp, but without wings.. People step on them and still don't kill them on the first try.. I've seen someone step on one and it get back up and take off running again.. took like three times to really kill it.. I don't kill them though.. They kill the stuff that really scares me.. Glad they are on my side!! \o/ Oh, and the stinger on them is like really long, About as long as a stinger gets..
  2. I remember picking one of those up one time, not sure if it is the same kind as in the picture or not.. But when it bit me it felt like I got shocked.. hehehe Either that or they can shock you and it wasn't a bite at all.. hehehe
  3. I took a look at the demoes of the V and the A and I think I found what the problem is.. When you put the A into hide/tuck mode the V pokes through.. That hide mode or tuck mode is meant for when wearing clothes so it won't poke through clothes. When it was out of tuck mode it wouldn't do it, well unless I was spread like an eagle.. But then I doubt he'd be looking down there at that time anyways.. hehehehe
  4. I love taking people into the mountains that have never been there before.. At night every sound that pops up, and thier eyes about pop out of their sockets.. Snap a stick and it's like deer caught in headlights. hehehe That night time super hearing in the woods doesn't really kick in until it gets quiet and you can hear every little thing.. hehehe
  5. The kissing bug and two kinds of spiders, which I'm not gonna say which ones.. Because every time I say their names, I come across them.. All three can mess you up. As far as ghosts or monsters or horror movies and things.. I'm not really scared of things I don't believe in.. When I'm in the woods or pretty much anywhere I have my guns, which I have permit to carry.. So if some poor sucker wants to try and snatch me.. He better be a lot more sneaky than I am alert, because I know how to use'em.. hehehe
  6. If you are using the second life viewer, you can click on the chat icon at the bottom of your screen and pop open the chat and move it around to anywhere on your screen.. If you are on the firestorm viewer, the chat button is called conversation button and is next to where you enter chat text.. Click that and it will open the chat window for you.. In the bottom right of either of those chat windows there is a spot in the corner that you can grab and expand the chat window to either wider or narrower or taller or shorter.. There was a way to change the chat to classic chat , but I can't remember how to do that anymore.. I have been on firestorm viewer for so long.. hehehe
  7. If you put on an older skin that was made before mesh bodies, you can really notice it. it's the template seams.. I put on one of my older system body skins and it's easy to see where the lines are.. you can even see the rest of the lines, like in the arms and hands and outside lines on the legs.. My current skin is pretty seamless, but my guess is that there is so much going on in the crotchilation area from shading and lighting to bumps and lines coming together in that one spot, that it's probably something that can't be avoided.. If the subject never came up I would have never noticed them..I had to really go looking for them to find them, so they aren't something that i would say are noticeable really.. Compared to older skins, the skins I have tried on today trying to notice it, are really improved over the older before mesh skins that I have.
  8. That seam line is a skin seam line more than likely.. I can see the same line on all my bodies from my skin ,even when I switch over to system body.. I've got reborn, both legacy, Kalhene erika, Maitreya, All the Bellezas,Lucy,.. I decided to stop after running through those since it was showing up every time.
  9. We just finished watching A Monster Calls.. What a good story. I don't want to say much else about it in case others haven't seen it.. We were looking for something to watch and stumbled across it.. Such a good find..
  10. 2008 there was also a different problem after the crash that made it more difficult to get a home.. Before the crash people only needed things like 6 months of good credit.. They were practically pushing people into loans, doing about anything to make the loan happen, and buyers making promises to themselves that they couldn't keep.. 3 car loans and a house later.. Not to forget how easy it was for people to get credit cards that ended up with the users juggling from one to another to pay the minimum while they used them to borrow from peter to pay paul..I remember a zillion different credit cards for stores.. hehehe After the crash,one of the things you had to have was, you had to have squeaky clean credit for years before they would consider a loan.. I can't count how many people I knew that were doing debt consolidation or bankruptcy after the crash. Hit so hard that they were taking loans out each week on their paychecks doing check to cash just to get their check before payday, and then paying the guy interest on their own paycheck. So when you go in to give the guy your check, you have to bring the fee as well.. Then there are the places I called loan shark companies that will borrow people anywhere from hundreds of dollars to thousands.. then put them on weekly payments..miss a payment and they have you for a long time hit with crazy interest. Talk about a trap. People that were living high on the credit hog back then, were looking for jobs because they were scarce and places to rent because they couldn't buy one on credit anymore. Where right now it's more the opposite.. plenty of jobs , no place to rent. A few reasons prices are up today is because of reasons that sellers would increase the prices..Things like lower interest rates, Government subsidies, building material prices causing construction cost to go up, trends in buyers.. Where 2008 was the result of one of the largest greedy cluster F's ever that pretty much most from all levels had a part in the blame, from buyers to lenders to investment banks.. This is a different scenario today.. I remember people back then being so cocky with huge egos and saying things like, Cash is so last decade, omg you don't have a credit card! o0.. All while they didn't own a thing, but they had plenty of stuff on paper they were paying off, acting like they owned it all. Sooo much cringe.. In my area, the prices have been going up for the past few years because of so many coming from out of state.. As of two years ago, you can't find a place to rent other than an apartment around here.. We bought a second home in town few years ago as an investment for under 100k.. It's market value right now is over 160k and still going up.. This is in a small town, nothing fancy of a house either.. 3 bedroom, 1 bath ranch, about as basic as it gets.. Since covid hit and people have been crammed up in their living spaces, there has been an increase from people just wanting to get out of overcrowded cities and overcrowded suburbs and apartments and into homes in much less cramped areas.. Honestly I think that trend has been going on a couple years before Covid, because our area lit up fast, but Covid helped boost it even more.. There is a good concoction of things going on in the current market that I don't think we'll see a bubble burst or anything like that, but probably will drop and level out. Interest rates are going to start to go back up when inflation hits us a bit harder.. We may start to see a drop kick in around then..Also someone is going to end up filling the jobs at some point that is causing so much demand in so many areas right now.. When that happens prices on many things may start to drop as well.. Things kick other things off and start the push in directions.. This is more natural market things happening right now, where 2008 was something that was going to come to a head and blow sooner or later and leave so many bodies laying around hurting, because it was pure scam. I think I remember hearing something like only like 40 people went to jail from that whole thing too..The sacrificial lambs probably.. When really,there should have been a culling of those crooks back then.. If there was ever anyone I wanted to see jump out of a window, it was those bastages getting away with it all..
  11. Avi-Glam Always has something I like for just about ever time I change things up.
  12. It's Friday and yes, I'll have fries Wit Dat! \o/
  13. Honestly, I don't have the luxury of the time it takes to worry about it.. hehehe
  14. You may want to double check the images you have up as well because those look to be Disney as well.. Someone is bound to flag those at some point.
  15. I won the attendance lotto at work this week, so I get the weekend off this week.. So I'm gonna lay down and watch some fun movies and relax, since I don't have to get up to an alarm tonight.. hehehe I'm starting with this one, because it's such a funny movie that is very re-watchable.. Get Hard..
  16. I haven't heard this in forever and a day.. MC Lyte and Queen really put it out there.. When the girls get together they are unbeatable.. I love when they gather and get it goin on. A little queen A little MC Lyte.
  17. This sounds like fun.. I've been wanting to take a look at Bellisseria anyways, so I may give a look around tomorrow and do some trick or treating while I'm there..
  18. I never heard of Earth 2.. That flat earth GIF made me hit my head on my desk it was so funny!! \o/
  19. This should be fun and interesting to see.. The boys are hyped up for it.. March 2022
  20. Can you stand on a cushioned floor, because that's what most of those kinds of jobs are required to have, because safety is a big issue. If you can't be on your feet for 8 hours, then yea a lot of jobs are probably not going to fit what you are looking for. There are some places where they have chairs on the floor, like in plastics plants.. Myself I can't stand on a cushy floor because my boots have good cushion in them and it becomes way to cushy.. Either way, there are millions that were working those kinds jobs before the virus and not going back to work now, even though they are paying better.. Florida, didn't they have the governor that decided to get back to business before any of the other states? They went back to business and didn't stay shut down like a lot of states did. That could have a big impact on being less shorthanded than other states are right now, since they cut off the extra benefit money back in June. Could be a lot of reasons why.. Without seeing his application, I couldn't tell you what was going on.. I can tell you right now, every place around here is looking and short handed..Not just the plants but everything. The business hours in things like the coffee shop are messed up.. Myself, I easily started to train well over 100 people this summer..Most of them never showed back up the next day. All they have to do their first day on the job is observe.They get eased into what they will be doing for the first week.. Many just wanted to show they were trying to get a job and went right back on unemployment. I've had them even tell me that, which to me is about the dumbest thing a person could do pulling that scam.. hehehe Some just said they were going to try down the road, which I can understand. It's gonna be what it's gonna be no matter what.. I know this much.. I'll believe what I see going on before I start believing a media outlet trying to tell me what's going on. I have a better seat in the car than they do. We have plants all over the country let alone the world.
  21. Could you put a piece of cardboard into a machine that folds it into a box for you, for around 20.00 an hour as starting pay? I just found out about that job while talking to someone about other places hiring, just two nights ago. They were telling me they were thinking of leaving. I guarantee they were not paying that much last year.. I got lost in a daydream of what that would be like to have such a nice simple stress free job like that.. hehehe A lot of the jobs that make the country tick are shorthanded.. A lot of the inflation going on and prices going up is due to shortage of those workers.. Lumber prices going sky high, that was due to shortage of truck drivers, which increased construction prices. There wasn't a shortage of lumber, because there were tons of logs just sitting there waiting to be transported.. Even Chicken prices skyrocketed.. Wasn't a shortage of chicken.. I was like Damn!! you'd think they were selling steak.. hehehe Truck drivers alone had a huge impact on prices in many areas.. Then to boot, I just heard the other day that over 4 million people in August just up and quit their jobs. I was like, I'm never gonna see my weekends ever again. The reason unemployment is so low is because more people are off of it now and not because they went back to work.. Just to add about where I work and the jobs we have there.. A lot work the lines yes, but are also being trained as machine operator process techs as well as robot operator process techs for the automated lines coming in the future.. Not only did the pay go up in our company, but opportunity for a better future did as well and nobody is grabbing it.. I'm just frustrated that work is starting to feel more like home than my home is.. I can't help but feel that there is a good chunk of people that got hooked on the big paid time off they had this past year.. Many were making more on unemployment than they were at their jobs back then.. But Those jobs aren't paying what they used to..Not if they want to stay in business and running right now.
  22. I guess all that foreclosing and bankruptcy going on must have helped those people that didn't have houses yet.. hehehe
  23. That's going on all over the place..Right now employees have a lot of power because just about everywhere is short handed.. Our company went from telling us what they were going to do with hours, to putting it to a vote amongst all the employees.. They wanted to up the hours, we voted it down.. There have been pay wars going on with companies trying to keep their employees as well as draw employees from other companies.. Myself since last spring, I've gotten 6 raises and two promotions and the year isn't even over yet.. hehehe I haven't had any free time at all, but the money is really good.. hehehe It's like, all they have to do is hear you are looking and they turn nice as can be..
