bandmama 2 years, 2 months ago on Brent Boyer: What's in a name?

sep and just- While I may be completely honest on how I feel about a topic in this forum, I would not be so open minded, and honest in my opinions if put face to face with a client or customer. It is in my best interests sometimes to keep my big mouth shut. I am not "hiding" but am in fact cowering over what my honest opinions may or may not do to my financial well being. And yes, there is that fear of what being honest sometimes can do in causual conversation. This sort of forum allows free thought and opinions from many that may not otherwise be "spoken". Mr TaiChi said it very well. I would not like to insult a friend, co worker, client, customer with opinions that would not set well with my professional co horts. But I do have the right to state them when allowed to in an annonymous forum. When this topic came up last, we were given the option by the Pilot to continue to use this forum with the knowledge that they did in fact have our real names, and other info. Those of us who continue to post do so knowing that we can not just rant or attack others without repercussion. I did see a noted shift in the tone of the comments. Not a bad thing, has kept us civilized for the most part while still being able to read to opinions of our fellow community members. I do feel that we get a much more rounded view of this community by a few annonymous posts that harbor a bit of honesty. Just my opinion. If I choose to use my real name then I would start a blog. Mark Twian and others did just fine by using pen names. Just saying.

What's in a name? A lot. Part of the vibrant, off color HONEST opinions would go away. And that is what makes this forum so entertaining as well as educational.

bandmama 2 years, 3 months ago on Cash testifies Tuesday that shooting was an accident

"Gee Baby, I had a loaded gun as I walked towards your bed. I knew you were scared and I was ashamed of the way I made you feel. I dont think I pulled the trigger but my ears were ringing from the noise. I didn't call for help, cuz I assumed you were dead. I really didn't mean too. I had taken a lot of something and it didn't work on me, but had the physical control of my body to pick up that loaded gun and with depressed feelings walk to you and..darn there goes that ringing in my ears. I didn't call for help cuz, gee, I thought you were already gone. I had made you uncomfortable enough to tell co- workers that if you didn't show up for work something may be wrong. But I didn't mean to.... I didn't do a very good job with taking pills or shooting myself cuz I felt so bad. I am really sorry I didn't call 911 immediately...it really was an accident. Even if the bullet bounced off of something I had no ill will towards YOU! I was just depressed, shaky and confused. I missed my own chest Baby, ya gotta believe me!!! I even cared enough to throw a little something over your bleeding upper torso. And I made several attempts at writing a note of explanations. Honey I swear, it was an accident. Really?????

bandmama 2 years, 3 months ago on Steamboat School Board unable to reach consensus on food service to CMC

Well, that would depend. Does Max's wife still work at CMC/Sodexho on Thusday nites? Since HE left the company recently, not sure of the schedule..... Max,you old dog you!!! All I know is that I really miss the all you can eat for $5-ish bucks that was prepared so well, I USED to enjoy the welcome at lunch time. I would think that CMC would welcome local bucks and customers(local support) at the lunch hour instead of discouraging them. Oh well..Freshies??? While ya cost more? Local clubs JUST might be crossing your doorstep now.

Sodexho did provide great service the first 8-9 years. Dont know exactly why but new faces and new upper management. Then it sort of went downhill. Used to be the BEST all you can eat lunch deal in town for under 6 bucks. Last time I ate there the chicken was raw near the bone and the place wasn't all that clean.Heard rumours also that they failed inspections for the first time within the last year. Easy to check with the health dept I guess. One piece of raw chicken was enough for me. Not going back.

bandmama 2 years, 3 months ago on Steamboat City Council delays action on ambulance privatization

Why yes Spider!!! That is EXACTLY what will happen. thank goodness you have the brains to figure this out. The only thing is, is that maybe it wont be just women. This is the age of non discrimination. WTH? Lets pander out all of our local services to money grubbing, non government, conspiracy ridden, private sectors and hope for the best. Wouldn't want to utilize any of the local resources here in the valley. Now THAT would be stupid.
