2013-06-14 • Arizona Heat
Seventies: Happy Friday! about time! lol Howdy daviss
daviss: lol it was hard getting on this morning howdy back Seventies
Seventies: oh really
daviss: I am convinced that this heat has a lot to do with puter acting up
Seventies: I'm watching another movie on Folkstream, "The Language You Cry In" yea you're supposed to only have it in a place no more than about 115.
daviss: oh really! Is it good well I think its the outside weather
Seventies: that's the story of the connection between Sierra Leone Mende and the Gullah. Its great! It's about an hour long
daviss: especially when the wind is blowing hot air
Seventies: I just can't get over the concept of hot dry air... lol
daviss: lol I hear ya
Seventies: I mean its like having a blowdrying just blowing. Lord!
Seventies: I hate blowdrying... lol
daviss: dry naturally
Seventies: yes... you know I got good hair! :}
alt: what's up ladies?
daviss: heyyyy alt! How are you today?
Seventies: Howdy dear alt.
daviss: uh oh alt, you are dear today....lol lol
Seventies: Here is a link to the film I'm watching... http://www.folkstreams.net/film,270
alt: oh, oh "dear"
Seventies: I've been kind of curt lately. Sorry. Its this doggone furlough business.
alt: how many days will you be furloughed & when Seventies?
Seventies: They have $1.5 BILLION dollars to build a new building with Contract workers, BUT can't pay me my money. And I may lose my insurance during the furlough 11 days alt. from July - Sep 30
alt: why would you lose your insurance during furlough?
Seventies: And BTW no budget has been passed for FY 2014 so this will happen yet again. Because, they will not take out the money and once the furlough is over you'd have to pay the past due premiums PLUS interest... and there is no backpay coming.
Seventies: And no other branches are furloughing their civilians. The entire thing is just truly a slap in the face.
alt: that's strange Seventies, it would seem like you would just lose 8 hrs. pay for those furloughed days.
Seventies: Well its 16 hours per pay period.
alt: is the furlough only being applied to DOD?
Seventies: No several federal agencies are on the chopping block The big one was the TSA and Air Traffic controllers But all kinds of people will eventually be affected by this failure to pass a budget...
alt: yeah, that's a "stringer" 20% loss of salary for the period of the furloughed days .. 11 days would be over 2-3 months, right?
Seventies: yes... But they will be doing it again come FY 2014 in October.
alt: I used to know all of that Budget Year, Fiscal Year, Apportionment Year stuff.
daviss: I know how you feel Seventies having gone through the same thing once upon a time, and also my kid went through it last year Especially when you have children
Seventies: Its crazy they still haven't passed a budget
daviss: They have a new breed up there seventies
alt: it doesn't seem fair to single out "specific" agencies to NOT be affected.
Seventies: And payroll taxes went wwwaayyy up... look I have a bottom line too.. Its getting to the point where I think they are pretty much saying 'Let them eat cake'
alt: guess you have to look at the bright side for comfort Seventies .. you do have a job with relative peace & security. whatever that is worth.
Seventies: yes, I do. But at the same time, I want my congress people to take a 20% pay cut as well until they can do their job.... Anyway...
alt: I can feel your pain Seventies, as a former Civil Servant, I remember us "Feds" always getting "scre*ed" when it was time to pinch.
Seventies: Yep So what's new in the world of history and genealogy?
alt: genealogy is relatively slow so I'm catching up on Gedmatch & the genetic genealogy 'stuff"
Seventies: I was telling daviss the other night that I have my places to visit list completed for my trip to MS/TX. And while we were talking, I added more places! lol and I'm going to put my children to work helping me with the research... and they're going to LOVE IT! lol lol lol
alt: when will we see you in "beautiful Ohio"? LOL
Seventies: I'm not sure... I would love to go up there as you know I have peoples up there. :}
