    Motor homes are an American lifestyle. There are gorgeous RV camping spots in Oregon. They are Well maintained and peaceful.
    I rode past this mobile unit on my bike yesterday. One side of the River you see these hippy RVs and one the other side of the river you see the modern upscale ones. This place is a trip.

    I went down to San Luis Obispo Ca last month for a job interview.
    It wasnt great. Everything about the trip was a hassle or just not impressive except for the cute town of San Luis Obispo.
    our plane was not able to land in San Luis Obispo and was diverted to Santa Barbara where we rented a car to drive back up the coast to Pismo Beach where the interview was.
    My interview was conducted in a storage closet!
    Three women and myself in a storage closet. Im a bit claustrophobic so this was not good. lol. I did alright after after having a small nervous siezure. lol
    In the interview they asked me how much i wanted and when I told them ... it was obvious sticker shock on their faces.
    I was up against one other person and they ended up picking the other person based on the other person having an extra crediential i dont have.So they said.

    So my phone is fucked up and i ended up getting like a 2 week old voice mail message from them a couple days ago so called back. The girl that they picked decided not to take the job.. in the end... so they were going to offer me the job.
    But because i never returned a voice mail that i never got because my phone was fucked up and never processed the information to me on time, they reposted the position and they now have someone flying out from Florida to interview on Tuesday but they are still interested in me and asked if I am still interested.

    I asked how much an hour and when she told me what she thought but wasnt sure, I said no thanks, you can cancel me out...Then she asked me what i want and i told her and she said she will tell HR. lol... I am just going to wait and see if they call me back with what i asked for and i want more. Relocation and sign on bonus. and if they were to give me everything i ask for.. Still might not take it. lol Cali is so fuckin expensive and they are renovating the entire department with new equipment and rooms so I dont even know what it will look like . She said I would be sharing a control room with MRI, that is not a good set up at all for me. So i would have to tell them to redesign my department. lol

    Anyway I got the promotion to Lead Tech at my job and when I talked about more money to my supervisor he said he have no control over how HR gives their raises , he has discussed this with them before...and he knows it is lower then it should be and thats why people are quitting left and right. But there is nothing he can do about it. I got a measly raise with more hours and PTO. Its a hella lot cheaper living where i do now and i like Oregon alright. The people suck but you cant have everything.

    Mmmmmn. Department heads usually decide on salary levels ime. Especially in tech jobs. You sure your boss isn't passing the buck Ambs? Bloody HR people....wtf do they know about what people with specific skills should get paid. Drives me freaking insane the way HR depts lord it over other areas of companies. Doesn't seem to add up. But then if folk are leaving and the boss cant increae their pay maybe he is gen up.

    As for that other lot. The way they handled that would keep me wondering what its going to be like to work for them. Client gives me an offer for a candidate i am calling the candidate and leaving a message...then calling again 5 minutes later...then again and repeat, then emailling and then ringing their doorbell lol.

    I emailed hr asking for my pay scale and asked if new grads and experience make the same. She gave me a pay scale from low to medium years and proceeded to rudely tell me my pay ain't changing based on the scale even though it should.. I took the job at the bottom of the scale ,even with 10 years experience because they wouldn't give me more ....and I never saw myself staying in the area long term.i had just sold my house in Wa and needed to move. It was all about timing and the other tech I was going to work with why I why I took the low wage ..and my field is dead and there aren't a lot of opportunities.... got a few bucks raise after working there 2 weeks because they did an area pay scale adjustment, but it was still too low. . So looks like I'm jolly well fucked and shit outta luck until another opportunity presents itself.

    These CBD caps are helping my father with his pancreatic cancer. He says they give him energy. They are bloody expensive . 90 bucks for 20 caps for recreational price.
    The hemp/ CBD scene can be very very shady. You have to pay for quality. IMG_3218.JPG

    Yeah it's depressing. There are 3,000 homeless people in my town. It's insane. Good jobs are difficult to find. Wages suck. When we were in Cali visiting there were commercials on tv about how to afford housing even for people making fairly decent wages.

    Thanks DST!
    Mike just got cleared for his State Marijuana Workers Permit, so hopefully he will get some work soon. I just applied for mine. They pay $150 cash per lb to trim. Harvest season is upon us . Might be cool for me to pick up some weekend hours for some extra cash and free smoke. Get this though.. the fuckin permit took 3 weeks to get/background check clear you and costs $100!!. Only until you get it will any legally established OR MJ business hire you on as a trimmer, budtender, gardener. ect....SUCH a racket. But hey, you dont have to worry about a DRUG test. what a fucked up world we live in.

    There is no shortage of money in our country or in our economy to give everyone a job at decent wages, and to help those truly unable to work.

    We've just been suckered in by the propaganda that having a few stupid rich people instead is somehow better.

    I found a great new book at the library.
    Have you ever read it? Do you even like reading poetry?
    [​IMG]
    the last bible read was Jorge Cervantes , the edition I had was back in 2008. I liked some of the old school pictures in it.

    That's why I posted them.
    I go read poetry, very occasionally.
    I have that book. It's amazing how far we've progressed since then.

    yeah. Henri Rollins is a great modern poet He is so funny he makes my face hurt from laughing and smiling.
    I saw he was is on tour. He Stopped in town recently touring with as a speaker and spokesman for Marijuana. I foolishly missed that event.I just don't get him about marijuana though. He says he doesn't partake at all, But thinks its just
    Marvelous; With his self awareness about his anxiety issues and insomnia he discusses constantly. you think he might benefit from the medicial values it offers.:leaf:
    someone u tubed , it....... cool!

    if you never seen SLAYER, you must. Trust me, these guys are metal gods. and will not Disappoint.

    Their new album, Repentless, is SMOKIN hot.
    THe show last night was off the charts amazing.

    It was the best show i have ever seen in my life.
    They are up in Seattle tonight and hitting Canada for a couple gigs
    then back down into the states.. Montana , New Mexico and the AZ.
    If you can get to one of the shows, you gotta GO! THe stage show is sick. Flames and Fire bursting out everywhere!!!

    For each show they do, they make a unique poster! and there are only a limited amount. I was lucky to get mine and it was like one of the Best or quite possibly the Best images from any show, the most evil looking one!
