I guess that's what makes an eastern indian an eastern indian!
Good to know.
Actually, I don't think they wash it all that often...

When I happen in to some money there is always someone whose path I cross who is having a rough time - trying to figure out if getting meds or food is more important; whether the rent or the gas bill should be paid - and then that money talks to me and tells me I don't really need it.

Another bad idea is to give me something I already think I have enough of - if I have enough sweaters, rest assured if I get one one will end up being given away (and usually the new one ).

I honestly don't plan it to be that way, don't set out to have it happen either.. just seems to turn out that way most of the time.
I guess I must be more Indian than I thought. I seldom go to the city without buying a meal for somebody hard up on the street. Met some nice people that way. I get a lot more fun out of shopping for Christmas presents for others than I do getting presents. I found a really good way to split the difference between giving gifts and helping others - there is a group called Adopt a Native Elder who helps traditional Dine to sell the rugs they weave - the weaver gets all the proceeds, and you get a good rug - I bought a couple this year for Christmas presents. There are more and more kinds of groups like these, helping various people and organizations. MAkes Christmas more fun that ever.

I agree, it sits better inside to give to someone else.

Ken, I appreciate your way of thinking. It's not just about you, it's about everyone who works for you. My dad did siding and gutters and always worried about having something for the guys to do when business got really bad so they could support their families.

I knew that banning smoking in bars was a bad idea, but I didn't really think about how it would affect others outside of the bar employees themselves. Now that I think about it, sound would be the first to go. I hope business picks up soon.

The law only provides for indoors. Outside is fine to smoke.

My sound company is fine right now. It's the future that I'm worried about. I'm looking at this summer when the laws become enforcable. Right now there is a mix of non-smoking and smoking taverns and restuarunts. Some are not following the law because there are no rules to enforce the law. In June everyone must go non-smoking because the rules will have been written. This includes all businesses of any type. By law even my basement office and sound studio must go non-smoking because of my clients that record here. Ohio Sucks sometimes!

At least we can still smoke outdoors like at powwow.

Why would you vote "yes" on something that isn't completed yet. No self respecting NDN would vote on something that they don't know how it will affect them. Stupid Wanabi people!

WASH, RINSE, REPEAT DAILY AS DIRECTED ON BOTTLE.

TOWEL DRY COMB BRAID! That's how I feel about it! Oh yes, while your washing your hair, TAKE A SHOWER TOO!

Save water, Shower with a friend!

If I say any more, I'll take it to the 40s thread.

Where is my brain at?!!! Totally unrelated to the current direction of this thread, but somewhat related to the topic...we finally got the rest of the documents we needed and have sent off our packet for citizenship to the Cherokee Nation. (Again!....a certain mother of a small child..ahem.. didn't sent two of the correct types of birth certificates...so it's a second run here... )

You know, I used to smoke and now I don't, cause frankly, I want to cut out all of the variables! But for a town to cut out smoking from bars, that's cutting off your economy. I mean, I can understand having most of it be non-smoking for people's health in general. But how about a specific room for a quick smoke so you can get back to the music and your friends?! I'd be for something like that. It makes more sense (well, to me anyway...)

Yep.....seems like the whole world is going smoke free.....and now that the precedent is set to pass laws for health reasons, how long will it be until other laws are passed? such as food (size and content) and alcohol...body size limits...as well as other 'trendy' health boogiemen?
Every time we pass laws of this nature...a little more personal freedom is lost....

Bear grease is a bit hard to find. Walmart doesn't carry it.
