I highly recommend this group and Barbara. My wife and I attended for a year or so when my mother developed first stage dementia before her death. I learned a lot about what was going on with my mother and how to deal with her.
Congratulations Jonah. Think long term. I bought my first stock at 14 with money earned mowing lawns. 10 Shares of American General Insurance which cost $220. My mother worked for that company for 40 years and they did very well until some crooks at AIG bought them. I am now enjoying the fruits of 56 years of long term investing at age 70. Long term helps cure short term mistakes. I still keep a small portion of my assets that I "trade" for entertainment and excitement. Better odds than Las Vegas.
What is a conscience?
Barry I think I remember you now. Black hair and wore glasses? I think you were a supervisor when I drove 2001/2002. I started 2003 but quit when I got a year round job with benefits. Based on your longevity, I will agree with your assessment of the situation but I had a better experience than the one described by you. If I could have gotten on year around, I probably would have been driving bus for 8 years and quit when I retired at 65.
I drove bus one season, unloaded Tugboat at closing, and my experience was not nearly as bad as Barry proclaims. Ever drive bus, Barry or Neil?
I fell twice at the post office and a whole lot more times on the ski slopes. Falling in the winter is part of living in Steamboat.
Johnathan Flint does the best he can with what the city gives him. He is an excellent manager with years of experience. He is not a politician and there is no reason for him to get embroiled in the controversy. I drove city bus for one season and started a second but got a year round full time job with benefits driving a delivery truck so I quit bus and took that. Any of you "experts" on the bus system ever drive a Steamboat bus or any other kind of bus? Most seasonal drivers are young, male and part of a transient workforce. Exactly the kind of people who have traveled to Colorado since pot became legal so it certainly is part of the equation.
Rhys We take the easy route thru Moab, the reservation, Flagstaff and Kingman We stay at Monticello or Blanding Utah. Those are quiet towns. Since Green Bay stumbled I am now predicting Seattle and New England in SB subject to revision next week. Hope I am wrong as I can not stand either team. Would not know who to root against.
Wonderful story! A great historian!
I have badmouthed Shelley before. This time I say YEA for her. I know no one involved in the lawsuit.
