    There's a line between proactivity and self confidence versus arrogance and entitlement. I think he's on the wrong side of that line! LOL.

I'll give them a list of my demands, given that rent is more expensive in Denver than Phoenix. IF they meet my demands, I'll take Colorado." I'm thinking "demands" is not a good word to use . . . and it appears that rental costs are similar.

    I must say, I met this guy before they hired him, and my women's intuition told me that he wasn't someone I'd hire. But I wasn't the one doing the hiring. Neither was hubby.
    Sounds like this would make an excellent TV show episode. I'd watch.

    We weren't lucky enough to get fog, but it wasn't nearly as hot today as it has been. Nice to get some relief from the heat!

    Same here in Orange County. No real wind either. Next week looks like a real cool down.
