Zatarain's mix is really good

As we are on a limited budget, we eat beans and rice sometimes. Usually canned red beans with Tony Chacheres seasoning . Served over rice.

I bought Zatarain's beans and rice mix, and will add smoked turkey sausage, $3.29 a pound, browned in our Foreman grill. The box of Zatarain's was on sale for $2.00.

Sigh. Letter update

First, ty everyone for listening. After three calls to my former hellholes HR dept, and 2 emails, they denied sending anything. 3 people.

Got the gd letter, and it is about changing my COBRA choices during open enrollment. IOW, I DID read the sender right. XXX DHR.

I'M NOT CRAZY. it's not a nasty letter about jury duty/ being sued/ losing my ltd payments. Or some other horrible thing ppl send CLs for.

Relieved, but pissed. Been watching for the mail truck all day for redelivery. Its raining

Certified letter still a mystery.

The sender area read XXX ( 3 letters that usually indicate the county I worked for) and DHR. which i took to mean dept of human resources. Called them again today, and the assistant checked and said she sees no letter from them. I called my lawyer's office to see if they sent me a CL, no. But they were interested in what it was. I'm an beyond stressed and lost about this. I'm hoping it's redelivered tomorrow.

I don't need this shit. I'm worried its time sensitive important information

Missed certified letter today

Came home from spending 600 on car maintenance. Sticky note on door. Except for the one time we weren't home, mail was delivered early, really pissed me off. It appears, if I'm reading the initials right, to be from my former employer's HR dept.

I have no clue. Super anxious. Going to have it redelivered. Called HR to see if someone there can shed light on this.

Freaking me out.

Anybody have an odd, funny, weird bed & breakfast story?

In the 80s, when I was young and pretty apolitical, my bf at the time and I stayed at a B and B in the Deep South. I want to say, SC. the wide was lovely and welcoming, excited to have guests, chatty. The husband was nice, but the house was dedicated to guns, Reagan, and hard-right-type stuff. I was a bit uncomfortable. We weren't married. Anyway, my bf and I got to hear a jocular political diatribe from this older man. I often wonder what would happen now.

I'd probably leave. I was only 20 around the time and "nice". The wife made us Southern Cassarole the next morning.

Maybe moving back to Greensboro

Live in expensive SE NC now. Lived in Gboro for a year about 10 years ago.
Anyone can name stuff they like about it there?

Hoping for an afordable condo.

Is traffic bad now?
