    (I wonder if Joe Schmo 2 will be as good?)

    When did Flaming post this? I went back 5 days and didn't see his post. Am I blind or did he delete it?

    I hope it wasn't my post that made you uncomfortable!

What does THAT mean? I'm not counted cause I was a contractor on my last job and therefore unable to get unemployment.
    Actually - a lot of people don't know that the unemployment figures are NOT derived from counting the unemployment claims. They are derived in a statistical manner in much the same way as the Nielsen ratings by a survey of 60,000 households.

    http://www.bls.gov/cps/cps_htgm.htm

    Oh and here are some government definitions:

    - People with jobs are employed. This means that even if you worked ONE HOUR in the month and admit that to a survey taker - you were employed.

    - People who are jobless, looking for jobs, and available for work are unemployed. If you were sick (mentally or physically) - you were "unavailable" and therefore "unemployed".

    - People who are neither employed nor unemployed are not in the labor force. If you are available, jobless AND YOU'VE GIVEN UP ON LOOKING FOR WORK - you're not even COUNTED in the statistics! In other words - the number of people ACTUALLY unemployed in the US is HIGHER than the published figures (i.e. 6.1% for September) since there are always people who can work but have just given up doing so.

    Sorry for being off-topic again.

    Rock the Joe Schmo! DVD wants us!

    It was about two posts behind mine. He might have been banned again, but I don't know for sure. Did the moderators delete his other posts? If not, maybe he deleted that one himself. He quoted a few people in it.

    His post was located between the 7:35 p.m. post and Angie's post at 7:49 p.m. It was there when I left the office an hour ago.

    He either deleted it himself (doubtful) or set a new time record for being re-banned.

    I deleted his post. Any questions?.... I didn't think so.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!" -- Steve Parker

    Geez folks... need I remind you that the show is over? The post rate is still pretty close to that while the show was airing.

    I've been working hard on having a life outside of Schmo. Thanks for all the suggestions on what to watch. I haven't caught up on the laundry yet but have discovered that TAKEN is being aired again. Whoo Hoo! I'm really excited about that since I don't want to pay what they are charging for the DVD ($119). I hope that Spike doesn't do that kind of pricing for TJSS.

    I love Monk! I'll definitely have to check in to see the episode with Lance. Do you remember which one it was?
    I like to watch - Chance the Gardener, Being There

    Yes, how much wood could a Matt Schmo show if a Matt Schmo could show wood?
