New County Website Being Developed Says Bishop

I spoke with Hunter Bishop tonight at the Highway 130 meeting, and I asked him how the website was coming along.  He mentioned that they are still working on it and it should be coming along soon.

He did mention that it would feature RSS feeds so that media outlets could just have the information fed directly to their sites.

Still waiting though.

I forgot to ask a few things I guess I should have asked… like how about a county blog?

I Can Handle Not Eating Peanuts… How Am I Going to Stop Eating Pistachios?

I love pistachio nuts… like… I’m addicted to them to the point where I can polish off a 1 lb bag in a sitting if I have em in front of me.  Just wish they weren’t so damn expensive.

Federal food safety officials warned Monday that consumers should stop eating all foods containing pistachios while they figure out the source of a possible salmonella contamination…

Bogus Twitter Person: Internet Police (Sam Sweetman/Shirley Bradbury)

So I get home from a long day… only to find out that someone is posting messages on Twitter to the following people… Who I think I know as Ms. Shirley Bradbury.

This stems from the same person that is doing the $100.00 Essay Scam Houses.

It’s very easy to see why… as I notified some of the people she was talking to on Twitter that the scam house was illegitimate.

Census Test Training

So I just got back from the first day of census training.

There were 16 of us.  Surprisingly enough…  two people from “Punaweb” were also hired.

Today was all paperwork and just doing basic stuff like getting to know our supervisor… fingerprinting, issuing of hand held computers, badges and learning how to fill out time sheets.

We get paid for Travel Time… As well as Mileage.

Most of the stuff that we will be doing, is pretty confidential… So I won’t go into to much on my blog.

I can blog about the position… I just can’t blog about the people I meet or the actual locations that I’m going to.

We were even instructed not to talk to the Media… I kind of snickered at that… and just told myself to shut up about my blog.

The biggest thing that happened…

Was I was told I was only going to be working about 20 hours per week… I got in there today… and they said were all working 40 hours per week.

So now I’ll have to work my DOE job until 12:15 each day… then work the census work from 12:30 – 6:30 each day and put in 10 hours during the week time.

At least it’s only for 10 weeks… and I can use the extra $6,000 + for the easy work… so I won’t bitch that much.

Just worried about them effing DOGS!

Now I got to get ready for tonights Highway 130 meeting.

I can see that my days are gonna be very long for the next couple months.
