    I thought a clothes washer was history once, after I took it apart looking for what was wrong,and before feeling the bottom of the tub and finding a screw stuck in one the little drain holes...long enough to stop it from turning. lol

    Also when we went to the window, none of the information I typed in to get the number seemed to matter, the person asked the same questions again.

    I guess mom should have done that B2M & Mike. One other thing, the take a number is a computer, my mom took one look and said "You do it, I don't know how." Sense most people that go to the SS office are elderly and are not computer savvy, I thought a regular old pull the number out thing would be better.

    It is a pain to get a replacement SS card, especially if the person was born out of state. Seems the local SS office will take a original birth certificate but they have to contact the other state to verify it is original before issuing a replacement card. In some cases up to 3 months. My mom needed a replacement SS card to renew her DL two years ago because of a change in state law or DPS policy, even though she collects SS

    And don't even get me started about the speed of service and efficiency of the local SS office employees, I don't ever won't to over hear Five of then yakking about where they went for lunch when only one window is open! lol. Compared to the local SS office, the local DPS office is a 1000 time better, although that isn't saying much.

    I know Mike, it seems the two major political partys have switched sides on issues. If the Newt wouldn't have been speaker of the House, what was called Hilliary care would probably be the law of the land now.

    Tricky Dickie always gets a bad name, the good things he did are always overlooked.

    "Although Nixon initially escalated the war in Vietnam, he subsequently ended US involvement in 1973. Nixon's visit to the People's Republic of China in 1972 opened diplomatic relations between the two nations, and he initiated d├ętente and the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with the Soviet Union the same year. Domestically, his administration generally embraced policies that transferred power from Washington to the states. Among other things, he initiated wars on cancer and drugs, imposed wage and price controls, enforced desegregation of Southern schools and established the Environmental Protection Agency. Though he presided over Apollo 11, he scaled back manned space exploration. He was reelected by a landslide in 1972."

    Yeah Zimmerman was much larger going by weight... but not height, and probably in much worse shape.

    Trayvon Martin was 6'3 140 lbs

    Zimmerman was 5'9 250 lbs

    One 6" taller and skinny for his height, one 6" shorter and fat for his height.

    So the whole size thing doesn't really matter. Zimmerman was wrong IMO, though.

    So who was the sponsor? The article did not mention who it was.

    Well it's cost saving to the COV,

    "Frank Werkenthin Jr., an Austin attorney representing the city's interest, said they would prefer to have the hearings in Austin as a cost-saving measure."

    It will save the city money, their hired gun attorney wouldn't have to drive or fly to Victoria, stay in a Hotel room ect. Durn, the COV will miss out on some HOT funds though.

    Just another case of " What does the COV Legal and Engineering Departments really do?"

    Every time something is built or a legal matter has to be litigated, COV hires a outside attorney or engineer.
