    Evenmorn mixers.
    i've publishsized a mix for first time_ thought i'd share. feedbag welcome too, as i'm still adapting to DIY;s weaker flavour compared to oneshots (particularly interested if this is actually really strong and i'm not registering)
    i'm guessing no link, but it should easily accessible be at elc with fuller notes

    I usually do but mostly take it a day or two at a time. If I’m gone a week then I’m really far behind when I get back. Besides with paying for college for two kids, we haven’t had a real vacation in a few years.

    Sorry to hijack a little bit the work related convo.
    But as someone who hasn't had a job in 10 years,yeah i miss the hell out of it.

    Waking up with a purpose,doing a job you like,helping people is what made me get up everyone morning with a huge smile on my face.

    Not jobless by choice,been taking care of my pops so i can't really leave home for more than a couple of hours a day.
    I could hire someone to take care of him but the job situation isn't stellar and the pays are garbage so if i actually hired someone to take care of my pops i would have to pay them my salary in full and then some.

    So yeah,nobody better than me to take care of him,that's for sure.


    Proverb in chinese comes to mind:

    Zhè shān wàngzhe nà shān gāo
    这山望着那山高

    Meaning: this mountain looks at that mountain’s height.
    Basically your grass is always greener on the other side type of thing.

    But i do understand where some of you are coming from,after doing a job so many years there is bound to be some burnout,even more if you don't get good holiday time.

    Besides work, I’ve been kind of stressed over finances. Just spent 6k on ac and furnace for the house. Then my youngest daughters car needs tires for 700. In a few months, my wife will need to get two crowns and we just have a dental discount plan. The two crowns are going to be 2400. I think it’s a combination of not having much time off and normal life stresses in my case.

    Enough about that stuff. I’d like to mix that sunshine state recipe posted earlier. I’ll try it as is but will probably end up bumping up the percentages. 8% doesn’t seem like a lot of flavor.

    Just thinking after all the years that your vacation time should be paid and therefore no reason not to take it.

    I love what I do and I’m an expert. I’m currently doing more than two jobs. I don’t love not getting the title and salary I deserve with no credit for my work to boot. And I’m real popular and “help” lots of people. But the people I help get the kudos for it. Bosses don’t care and most of the time they don’t even know what I’m doing. Don’t get me started on all the unfairness.

    Tomorrow’s Friday! Woohoo!

    I did the same thing for years while the people who were supposed to do the job got paid a higher salary than I did. I finally had to get the union involved.

    If you don’t get credit or pay for the extra you do then why do you do it?

    Yes, the salary is paid but I lose on the commission I would make if I was there. It’s a small company of 11 employees and the owner. We used to have 13 but let one go and one quit. We only ever get two weeks vacation and a handful of holidays. I have been taking the week over Christmas for the past few years to spend time with whichever kid is in college at the time while they are home.

    Yes, but my wife wouldn’t go. It would be like pulling teeth. Get the pun?

    I can’t complain. Between salary and commission, I’m probably overpaid. I however am very good at what I do and have the certifications to back it up. I do think I’d have a hard time finding a job in the same field that pays as well and includes a company vehicle.

    I like my winter "vacation" every year, but unemployment benefits doesn't quite cut it.. just have to plan ahead with the majority of my money made for the year in a month or so span. I think this upcoming vacation next week may be my first ever in my entire life of working, I'm pumped.
