Soldiers have thankless jobs.  Sure, we tell them "thank you for your service" (when we get the nerve), but when it comes to compensating them for their service... nothing's changed since I've been in... and it might be worse.  How does congress and the President thank our military?  By giving them a 1% pay raise over each of the last two years, and while slightly higher this year, it really seems more like obligatory table scraps, rather than paying them for what they are worth and keeping up with the cost of living.

Two years ago an E-4 with 2 years of service was making less than $2K/mo.  Assuming (best case scenario) that soldier had been promoted to Sergeant by now, the pay increase over each of the last three years has averaged ~$220/yr.  Thanks for nothing.  And, oh, by the way, this is a single soldier living in the barracks... and congress doesn't feed soldiers on the weekends.  Kinda sucks to get a long holiday weekend.  Soldiers must be thinking to themselves... "what do we gotta do for an extra $1000 bucks?"

Obama announced a 1.3 percent pay raise for military members next year, a level that's less than what's specified under the law.

Laurie and I celebrated our 12th anniversary last weekend. Our marriage should survive another year because I didn't buy her these flowers. #glitterbomb #justsayno

This is what the #Soda fire looked like a couple days ago, as seen from my neighborhood. Last night my next door neighbor and I sadly watched the fire burn the entire ridge that is seen here. #sodafire

Just picked up a nice collectable for my home office.  I'll bet you can find something there for your home, home office, office office, or as a gift for someone.  :-)

Is a wallet-style phone case a good idea? I'm certainly not good with advertising or potentially losing my stuff.

Found this Praying Mantis on the side of my house. It crawled onto my hand and I placed it into this bush. Its been there for a couple days now and doesn't seem bothered by the sprinklers. It crawled onto my hand again today, looking at me and turning its head side to side, almost as if it wanted to tell me something.

I think its saying, "Put me back where I can find something to eat! Like a tree with some yummy worms on it."

Photos of destructive fire and smoke doesn't have to be about fire and smoke. Too bad the tele on my smartphone isn't optical. I'm holding out and that'll be my next mobile device.  Note 6?  ;-) #Samsung   #Note4   #Boise   #fire

I was gonna give 'em 5 stars, but when I hit this page to write my review, a big scary spider photo appeared. You do pretty good with my treatments, why can't you show a picture of your treatment results, not before the treatment. Gawd, I hate spiders! So, 5 stars for the service, -2 for making me look at a photo of stuff I hate to look at in the first place.

My son grew up here since he was an infant. The childcare workers here have become longtime friends. And Amy Wilson, owner, is the most loving, giving, caring, selfless person that I've ever known.
