We are worried the person currently living there is going to trash the place. They are renting it out and they are not happy about moving. They have been nagging about everything. They were told 5 days in advance that the inspector will be coming on this date and this time. Nope. They didn't like it. If you are upset about moving, you could have bought the place. It more than likely would be cheaper than the rent they are currently paying. [/rant]
    Do it. When I was a kid my folks bought a house that was sold because of a divorce. The wife was still there and when it sold first she refused to leave (needed to get her evicted after we bought the house). She made such a mess my parents had to hire a cleaning company to come in and deal with it. If you knew how tight my Dad is with a penny you would realize just how bad it was. It made for some uncomfortable relations with the neighbors. They sided with the wife and we were the enemy. My Dad was also a white collar admin so us kids were pariahs. **

    **sucked as a kid but then every one of the kids in the neighborhood ended up in trouble with the law except the kid who dove into a pool drunk and fx his neck, landed in a halo for months.

    Good Morning Lodge!

    Re: Rep Retirement Lodge #190: Springing Forward

    I see two issues.

    1) Make sure they don't tear the place up before they leave
    2) Getting them to leave in the first place. You may have to evict them.

    Regarding giving out recipes, sometimes I can't because I don't have measurements or know how to explain things. There are family secrets as well. My mom's chex mix recipe doesn't get distributed. We think it's better than what is printed on Chex boxes. Mom usually only makes it for the holidays, and makes batches to give away as Christmas presents.

    Re: Rep Retirement Lodge #190: Springing Forward

    I never knew that about recipes. My mom is one of the best cooks I know and people have asked for her recipes many times and she just hands them over. then they make whatever and say they're not as good as hers but that's a different story. I'm not going to push for it, if she doesn't want to share it, fine. I take it as a compliment that people want to use a recipe. I'll also offer up if she wants to make it for me I can pay for the ingredients. Or come up with some other thing to serve.

    Every Wednesday we have Make Your Own Sundae Wednesday in our cafeteria. Today they had strawberry and vanilla ice cream. I don't like strawberry ice cream. Does not make for a tasty hot fudge sundae. I feel the cafeteria is somehow trying to infer that I do not need to have an afternoon hot fudge sundae and instead I should eat the banana at my desk.

    Two things....

    1) I do not care for either of the two offered flavors.
    2) I like fruit. I like ice cream. I do not like fruit with/in/on my ice cream. Weird? Maybe. But it is what it is.

    Oh.

    Truthfully I'm not a fan of banana splits either. I'm generally not a fan of strawberries in any event. I usually go with a basic chocolate or hot fudge sundae myself. If you give me vanilla ice cream, I'll put enough chocolate syrup or hot fudge on it to suit my needs.

    Re: Rep Retirement Lodge #190: Springing Forward

    My mom had a family recipe for German potato salad and she was never quite able to explain it correctly to my brothers when they asked her. My one brother cracked the code, so to speak, and will not share it with the other two brothers who want the recipe. He's not the most the adult brother I have.

    ---------------------------

    The following is a real-life office conversation I just had:

    Me: Okay, this test system, does it pull data from or push data to [trust account system]?
    Her: It pushed data to the system. We're updating fields.
    Me: Do you have a test ID?
    Her: I have an ID.
    Me: Is it a test ID?
    Her: It works.
    Me: Does it begin with an O or a Q?
    Her: Yes.
    Me: [Thinking of all the nasty fallout that could happen to both our clients and us.] What's your ID?
    Her: x2o.
    Me: That does not begin with an O.


    Just kill me now. This project already has the knife unsheathed.
    "The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command." George Orwell, 1984

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Not weird at all. I also like nuts but don't like nuts in ice cream, e.g. butter pecan.

    I like fresh, cut strawberries over vanilla, with a nice drizzle of fig balsamic.

    But I also like Sanders (pronounced "Sawnders", for the non-Michiganders) hot fudge every once in awhile.

    Good Evening, Lodge!

    We found out that the law is on our side. Per Minnesota law, if they destroy the place we do not have to close and it is the responsibility the renter/owner to fix everything before the new closing date. We were talking to our realtor last night and he told the selling agent to "put a leash on the tenant".

    That's great if you get possession at closing. If there's any delay between the closing and you taking possession, you still may have an issue.

    It is stated in the purchase agreement that once we close, we take possession. We are planning on having our last walk through one hour before the closing.

    Good move.

    In my case, I gave the owners 15 days to empty the place, seeing as how this was their residence.

    The earliest we would close would be the end of June.

    I have a few such dishes. My chili is almost perfect. I don't know how to improve on it anymore. I rarely give it out. Same with my world-famous cookies.

    The dxmnkd316 family beans recipe is one I don't give out and probably won't. I might will it to my kids someday.

    My cornbread is a recipe I have worked on for years. I do give that one out freely though. Ditto on my Nanaimo bars and a few other specialties.

    Re: Rep Retirement Lodge #190: Springing Forward

    It sounds stupid, but I've been told many times that my "garbage [scrambled] eggs" are absolutely amazing. I don't do measurements at all. I add stuff at random, cook it all up, and done. Eggs, milk, onions, 2-3 kinds of peppers minimum (red/green/hot), cooking time.......it all adds up, and is done by "feel."

    Fishing opener this weekend, looking forward to the super slow Friday that is headed my way at work. It's basically a holiday in my industry, given the clientele.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
