    I wish you would notice when I've told you that I'm glad that there is reasonable equality between sexes, sure you could cite some specific case of some shitty person doing something to a woman, but it's hardly systemic. Good job, you won that war.

    The one thing I have noticed, is that not one of the female engineers where I work is complaining about there not being enough female engineers.
    Hell of a lot more than when I grew up!

Runs about 5 large garage sales a year where she invites people to bring their stuff to her and she charges 20% of what she gets. She has funded all her projects this way and never ask for help. She has been a widow for about ten years. Her motto is " I can do anything if I put my mind to it". She just lives off social security, but manages to make her home very comfortable.
    No..no one can do do whatever they want if they out their mind to it. In my book I ask teachers not to deny kids their dreams, just make sure they have a plan b. I couldn't be an opera singer, no matter how much I put my mind to it. All my boys wanted to play center for the knicks... I always asked what they would if they didn't make the team...especially the 5'6" boy. I had one father who was pissed at me for not encouraging his daughter to apply to Bronx high school of science.....it didn't matter that she flunked all her math and science classes

    Please clarify that statement.

    This woman did everything she put her mind to. Failure was not an option, nor had a plan B. She needs her siding on her shed redone, so I offered to do the heavy lifting, but she is going to be nailing nails and helping with what she can. She is not a (excuse the bigoted term) Lazy person. Lazy is never an option for her.
