Another beautiful day in Havasu...

Orchids to getting the record straight. Waitress es and servers get $10.00 an hour. The tip is split between the waitress and the server. And they have to put up with unreasonable customers with a smile, who may or may not leave a tip. The hostess gets minimum wage, which at present time is a little over $12 an hour. In January the minimum wage will be $12.80 in Arizona.

Onions to the Nautilus parents who can’t figure out how to drop off kids. First, have your child ready to go before you pull into the line. Second, have all the kisses, hugs done with. Third, your child should have his or her backpack in their hands. Fourth, pull into the line as far as you can stop, open door and child gets out. Fifth, pull out into the left lane to make room for all the cars behind you. Sixth, go to work.

Orchids to Eagle Construction. They did a great job on our landscaping and driveway project. Always showed up as promised, sent and supervised professional work crews, performed above expectations and cleaned up worksite when complete. Great job!

Onions to our post office.

Mail delivered after 8 p.m. is ridiculous. If you need more help hire them, or do your job.

Orchids to the Republic Services truck driver who stopped to pick up trash the wind scattered. He crossed our street to retrieve a torn bag of trash and took the time and effort to include the trail of debris it left getting across the street. Great job!

Onions to the scum who hit and dented my car in the Safeway parking lot then just drove off. There are cameras you know nowadays. Your deed will catch up with you soon.

Orchids to everyone busy in planning all of the London Bridge anniversary events. Just another reason to live here. I’m having a blast attending the events your hard work enabled. Thank you!

Orchids to the afternoon cocktail indulgence.

Onions to our federal legislature who make omnibus bills and expect them to pass. Break it down, guys and gals.


beth - You actually don't know much about how the legislative process works, do you?

Omnibus legislation is routinely used by the United States Congress to group together the budgets of all departments in one year in an omnibus spending bill. For example, the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 was designed to help reduce the federal deficit by approximately $496 billion over five years through restructuring of the tax code. Here are a few more -

Omnibus Consolidated and Emergency Appropriations Act, 1999

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008

Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012

Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014

Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021


What happened? I though the evicted cut and paste little bobby was now somebody elses village idiot...


kaydee - Who is this "little bobby" you are referring to? No one named "little bobby" has ever had a comment posted here. Oh wait, "little bobby" is just another of those weird voices that bang around in your large, empty head.


Shame on the onions over the USPS. If you have a complaint, they have job openings that can't be filled, because no one wants to actually work. It's a tough job, go find out for yourself! Just like UPS and Fedex, USPS has until midnight to get your packages delivered. As with everything else, things change, can you change with them. Thank you to my USPS carrier Kim, she works hard, in the heat with no AC, and insures deliveries are correct. How bad do you want to beat them up?? It's not the carriers, but the good ole government...


Who’s the idiot that put DeJoy in charge of the USPS? Give him credit for this mess…

Too old for this

DeJoy is not your local carrier. USPS, like many companies today, are trying to hire people who don't want jobs. Who's the idiot who wants to give unemployed people $300 a week extra so that they do not have to work at all? Fire that idiot!


46 (IQ?) - No it is not "the good old government." It is the moron, DeJoy, that the twice-impeached, lying, POS put in charge of the USPS that has massively screwed things up and until President Biden - the man elected by the American people to fix just such screw-ups - is able to replace the Board of Governors and get rid of DeJoy it's only going to get worse.


Bhahahah!! believe what you want, but the buck stops with the President...he even said so!!!


Re: Post Office "Onion" . . . those 8 P.M. mail deliveries are the previous days screw-ups to place mail in the correct mailbox, don't cha know? [beam]
