Are you looking for work?
I hear Harley is hiring.
If you’re out of work, this sounds like the perfect opportunity.
I mean, $16.75 to $23.30 per hour?
That’s no chump change.
The higher range of that is about $48,000 a year.
But here’s the thing: You might not be there a year. Continue reading “Have you worked as a Harley casual? Tell us about it.” »

This is my free Thanksgiving turkey after I plucked it from a freezer at Giant last year.
Last year, I got a free 20-pound turkey from Giant.
I just like free things.
But, to be honest, I didn’t know what to do with it. (Aside from posing it in weird positions.)
I’m usually a pretty good cook, but I’m not sure how to handle an entire bird.
I didn’t even have a pan that would fit this sucker.
So it sat in my fridge and took up space. Until last week.
Last week, I realized I’m a few bonus points away from ANOTHER free turkey. Continue reading “Frozen Giant turkey finally cooked one year later” »

This is NOT one woman’s idea of a fun shopping environment. She doesn’t want to be exposed to the elements, she says. DAILY RECORD/SUNDAY NEWS — FILE
It’s a brisk winter day. The snow is falling.
You’re finishing up your Christmas shopping at the redeveloped West Manchester Mall.
You have several stores you need to visit. They are spread around the open air center.
But it’s cold.
And you don’t want to walk around.
Because, really, how fun is walking around outside when it’s too cold to feel your face? Continue reading “The West Manchester Mall: One woman loves you JUST THE WAY YOU ARE” »

Fran Monbray of West York and her daughter Stefanie Moyar of Spring Garden Township react after finding a figurine for less at the West Manchester Township Toys R Us on Thanksgiving night.
I’m of the opinion that Thanksgiving needs a new name.
Sure, it’s still a time when friends and relatives gather in one spot to enjoy a home-cooked meal and set aside mutual dysfunctions, if just for a few hours.
But, that’s not all Thanksgiving represents – not by a long shot.
In the past few years, more and more stores have opted to open their doors on this day, eager to get a jump on holiday shopping.
This Thanksgiving, after you’ve taken your last bite and argued your last point, you have the option of escaping to the packed aisles of Macy’s, J.C. Penney, Kohl’s or Kmart, to name few.

Warning: I’m about to complain about manners.
I’m positive this problem has been happening as long as check out lines have existed, but here goes:
The other day, I was in line at a certain discount clothier to purchase a pair of boots.
JUST a pair of boots.
There were only two registers open, facing each other side-by-side in the same little aisle.
So, I stood between the two cashiers, trying to form the type of line you see forming around those self checkout areas at grocery stores.
You know. First free register goes to the next person in line and so on.
A couple other people followed suit, standing behind me between the two checkouts, waiting for the people in front to finish their purchases. Continue reading “Shopping: What has happened to people’s manners?” »
