The 300-plus Metro teachers being laid off will be glad to hear that [superintendent Jesse Register] will continue to make his $250,000 a year though. Maybe he can hire a few teachers back with his salary.

Go to heel(sic) yogi and take your she troll with you.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 5/26/11 at 2:52

hey, Nemo! i figured you were MIA today.

As I understand it, the adult cicadas are out there shamelessly humping each other, in an entomological orgy...the sounds you are hearing are their screams of orgasmic pleasure....but please, don't tell the children.

By: house_of_pain on 5/26/11 at 3:00

I can hear them over my TV, Loner. Apparently, they're "screamers".

By: Captain Nemo on 5/26/11 at 3:00

I had to go to Richman, VA on business and then I spent a day with my daughter yesterday and night. Left for work this morning at 4 and did some work before coming home to no lights, but they are back on now and so am I. lol

Are you sure you are not getting yogi and sid mixed up with the cicadas, Loner?

By: Loner on 5/26/11 at 3:06

House, if humans went 13 years between sexual encounters, we'd scream like that too when the orgasmic drought ends.

Welcome back, Captain, Nemo. Your call caught me at the wrong time, I was buying a new rider mower and I was filling out paperwork and haggling on the price etc. By buying it on the Lowes card and then paying it off immediately in cash, I saved $70 on a $1,400 unit....they also threw in a free lawn cart....such a deal!

By: Captain Nemo on 5/26/11 at 3:09

It is aces, house. I can here the cicadas chorus loud and clear. However I doubt they can compete with bud, once she get to preaching.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/26/11 at 3:13

That is alright Loner. I know when I call you maybe doing other things. Don't worry about it.

I just got a Lowe’s card myself. I bought $544.00 worth of window blinds.

We had some screamers at Brushwood last summer, House. Nothing quite like those primal vocalizations, in the warm and windless Summer night, as Gembay drummers pound out a pagan beat and nubile dancers trace their circles around the community fire....yes, life IS good....very good.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/26/11 at 3:17

What kind of storm hit Nashville this morning? The intersection of OHB and Franklin road was still out at 1 this afternoon and there were still people trying to get to work. The traffic was backed up on I-65 for a ¼ mile.

By: house_of_pain on 5/26/11 at 3:19

I'd like to check out Brushwood sometime, Loner. It's a long trip for me, though.

Nemo, you must have a lot of windows.

Lurking, Blanket?

house they are a new kind of shade. There are no cords with this kind and are easy to clear. They also can be pull form the top down to give you light in a room and still be private.

By: Loner on 5/26/11 at 3:26

Starwood and X-Days will be in Wysteria, in Ohio this year, House. Brushwood will still have Sirius Rising, Summerfest (July) and other festivals...Hypnotic Clambake's OUR festival (at Brushwood) is coming up the first weekend in June...I might go down there for that one too.

Things are in a state of flux at Brushwood right now....some falling outs etc. and internecine sniping. We need healing. Trouble in paradise is never a good thing.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/26/11 at 3:27

I am going to take a shower and turn in early and hope to get caught up on some sleep. I will check out what stupid and dippy had to say, while I was gone. I bit it will be as funny as usual.
See you all tomorrow.

BTW Shut up yogi. ;-)

By: Blanketnazi2 on 5/26/11 at 3:29

more than lurking, even.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/26/11 at 3:29

Now Loner I know you don’t go to Brushwood for the music. wink wink

By: Blanketnazi2 on 5/26/11 at 3:29

welcome back, Nemo.

By: Loner on 5/26/11 at 3:33

Party on, Blanketnazi!

i might need some prayer therapy at our new meeting place this weekend.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/26/11 at 4:12

That can be arranged Blanket. I will start now. You are a good person and you love your dog.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/26/11 at 4:13

Shut up yogi.

By: budlight on 5/26/11 at 4:56

goes to show how much you know about me and how much you judge.
posted by blanket.

I asked you a question. Is that synonomous to judging to you? Must be the school you went to. I just asked a question. Leave it to a lib to interpret it "their" way.

Yogi, did you ever notice how "they" can't seem to go a day without mentioning one of us, even when we don't post? They can't "hep" it. It's in their dna to gossip and put people down.

By the way, Yogi, I got my dog back; cost me $800 but he's worth every pea-picking penny of it.

By: yogiman on 5/26/11 at 5:46

I began noticing that when I first began on this site, budlight. It started with dumba... He's going by the anonymous.'Captain Nemo'. You know, a fake ID.

I think he's afraid someone might find out who he really is to really understand his stupidity.

The few seems to think this site belongs to them and if 'we don't invite you, you ain't welcome on this site. Go somewhere else'. They don't seem to understand this site belongs to Nashville City Paper.

Glad you got your dog back. Dogs are members of the family. I've had mine "take off" recently but I just got a call she may be over in town. Gotta go see.

Most eco fashion is more expensive than conventional belstaff uk as it is more costly to produce. This is often partly because it is produced on a smaller scale and also because cultivation of organic fibres can be more costly. Use of recycled materials can also be a more expensive option than using raw materials. Whilst the cost of many belstaff jacket types of eco fashion have reduced as more efficient production methods are found and the industry grows, there is still a difference in cost between eco and conventional fashion. Many consumers will not worry about the slightly higher price of eco fashion belstaff men jacket as they have a strong belief in minimizing their impact on the environment. But for those who want to do their bit for the environment, but cannot or will not pay a premium for green clothes, swapping and buying second hand clothes is the perfect alternative.
