    We have a small town near me that just got in big trouble over nepotism. They fired all of the officials. Some of the got arrested and are in court.

    Well, it does make me feel a little better about the situation to be able to tell myself that nepotism is the reason I didn't get the job, and that it didn't have anything to do with my qualifications. It's funny, but I'm pretty sure the only reason I was hired at the restaurant where I'm presently working part time is because my son is a manager there. (yeah, my son is my boss, but he knows better than to boss me around!) I don't like to brag but I can waitress circles around the 20-something idiot that was just hired to replace the last 20-something idiot who only worked 2 months and then quit. I know the general manager passes over people in my age bracket in favor of the younger ones who seem to last about 6 months at the most. I don't get it myself. I guess I'm not supposed to.

    But, enough of this. Back to the good news thread.

    Am looking for any, but specifically the Hedwig the owl fabric. Going to make crib bedding and a quilt. Have been scouring the net without much luck. Thanks.
