Regarding the RAK project, I would think it is possible to do this again this year providing we can find a participating member who has the time to manage all the details. As I stated in another thread I've got too much to do this summer to take on any projects.

Ummmm to make money? LOL

I cannot believe that part of my summer vacation is over. By the time August comes around, I'll have to think about the coming semester and spend a lot of money buying books. Why can't summer last forever?

Hey, irina! I'll gladly send you some of the wicked heat we're having in my part of the US, lol. Today it was 92 degrees F. (33.33 C) with very high humidity, to make things worse. This is the 5th day in a row with temperatures in excess of 90 degrees! It's been so hot with no rain that my lawn is starting to turn brown the way it does in August. Some of my vegetable plants wilt in the daytime heat even though I'm watering them twice a day. This is totally crazy, LOL. I dread what it will be like with August really gets here. I would not be, at all, surprised to see temperatures over the 100 degree mark. I'm so not looking forward to it. No

Mary, has the temperature gone above 100 in Ohio? It was over 100 here on Tuesday with humidity way over 70. Luckily, things have "cooled down", meaning the temperature, but humidity is still very high. I've been hiding in the air conditioning for the past several days, because if I go outside the air conditioned room, then I'll do this sotr_th43

Not yet, kiki. However the heat index has been above 100 the past three days, so with the humidity factored in to the temperature equation it feels like it's well over 100 degrees F. affraid I have been hybernating indoors, too, only without the benefit of air conditioning. I do have fans in all the rooms in my house to keep the many cats comfortable; I do have 4 older cats that are subject to heat exhaustion, so I have to keep a watchful eye on them and the temperature in the house, even with the fan system working.

On the several occasions I've been outside in the last week the humidity, alone, has been a killer. I've been bathed in sweat simply walking out to retrieve the mail, lol. Getting housework done has been a nightmare with these temperatures and humidity. I would say I've been drinking roughly a little more than a gallon of water a day. Five minutes after I drink it, it's sweating out my skin pores, LOL.

Men never "get it" when women pack for a trip, LOL. We, women, pack not only the essentials but the gifts for family, stuff for emergencies, stuff to amuse ourselves so as not to be a burden to our loved ones when they have other important things to do in their daily routines. We pack clothes suitable for all the occasions we know we'll be doing plus extras to dress up our outfits if we go someplace extra nice, as well as the various things to make us look nice (cosmetics, hair products and appliances), and the list goes on. Men, on the other hand, grab a handful of underwear, a bottle or two of cologne, some aftershave, a couple pairs of shoes, a couple pairs of socks, an all-purpose pair of slacks, a pair of shorts, a good shirt and two or three casual shirts, and their done! LOL All of their stuff will easily fit in one suitcase, lol.

No air conditioning?! affraid That must be horrible. I cannot survive without air conditioning because of my past medical problems, so I have to stay in our air conditioned room. Also, because of my past medical problems, I have to drink at least a cup of water an hour anyway. As long as I stay in the air conditioned room and drink a cup of water an hour, then it'll be okay. Stay cool, Mary.

Gis, women know how to pack. Men have no idea to pack LOL. Mary described how men pack perfectly. That's my dad. lach

I also have no air conditioning and I know no one who has, it's not very common here in private houses. And at the moment we have 36 degree celsius, the next days will be even worse and I have to write my diploma thesis. It's terrible!! ko

Havent been here for a while because of the football World Cup - I was so busy. It was a great challenge for me and overall I think it wasnt bad how we covered it. Im not 100% satisfied, and in some ways it was my mistake, in some ways it wasnt.

Anyway, this World Cup was so special for me in many ways, and after a long time it felt there is nothing missing in my life. I loved those blessed days and I appreciate it so much.

However, the World Cup is over and all at once I have to face the problems at my job, my colleagues are not satisfied with their salaries and they keep bashing me in front of me and behind my back - sometimes it is hard to deal with it.

I have no questions and doubts about my journalistic skills but sometimes I have doubts about my "boss-skills". I have a vision, I have plans but sometimes I wish I wasnt hurt so easily by words. Anyway, thats what I have to learn and I know Im still young and I have the potential to be a good journalist and a good boss in a few years.

Right now I just want some virtual hugs from you Very Happy So, please, if you can help me... hugs

Titi...First the cyber hug (((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))), lol.

It was no surprise to me that you were heavily involved in covering the World Cup. I figured we'd see you posting again once it was over....and here you are, LOL.

About the problems of the boss-ing job, of course, you knew that existed but, because you were on the employee side of things, you didn't know how bad they could get...now, you know. Employees are for ever complaining that their pay isn't enough, no matter how much they are getting; it's just the way things work. Perhaps you can impress upon them the state of the economy and that it isn't only their wallets which are affected. If they balk at that answer, so be it, lol, but they'll get a rude awakening should they have delusions of getting another journalistic job at another publication. Most places, around the world, simply aren't hiring new people...unless they are top-notch journalists, and if your colleagues were "top-notch" they'd be working elsewhere, now, LOL. Explain to them that they'll just have to make the best of things until the economy improves....they same as you and the upper management types of the newspaper are doing.

I will say it is dispicable that your colleagues would verbally cut you to your face along with the stuff they are saying behind your back. It doesn't say a whole lot that is good about their character or ethics. It doesn't sound like there is one of them you could count on in an emergency; that's rotten but that the way small-minded people are, unfortunately.

Titi, hold you head up high and don't stoop to their level and tactics. Remember that upper management is always watching to see how you'll handle these situations. The more you impress them the more likely they'll support you in the decisions you have no other choice to make. Hang in there!

Je suis heureux mes amies de vous dire que je viens de recevoir une très bonne nouvelle hier. Après la déception d'avoir raté à mon concours, j'ai quand même appris que j'ai été reçu dans le master préparant le concours pour les professeurs d'histoire-géographie. Donc, ravi car je ne perds pas d'année et peut retenter le concours dès l'année prochaine. Je suis aux anges. J'espère que pour vous toutes, tout va bien. En tout cas, je vous envoie des ondes de bonheur.


I am happy my friends to say to you that I have just received a very good piece of news yesterday. After the disappointment to have failed in my competition, I learnt all the same that I was received in the Master's degree preparing the competition for the professors of history - geography. Thus, delighted because I do not lose of year and can reattempt the competition from next year onwards. I am in the seventh heaven. I hope that for you all, everything is well. In any case, I send you waves of happiness.
