"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.”

President Abraham Lincoln
Everything’s right in Fall River High School’s world and they earned it.

They weren’t satisfied with taking the Girls and Boys Basketball top championships, their FFA let the world know they were there in force. Now their Softball and Baseball teams are winning. They never seem to do anything halfway.

I have heard the term “Domestic Engineer” when trying to define a mom’s job description. Whatever you want to call it, the required list of skills is long and to pay for these services would make a mom’s annual wage around $2,325 per week or $125,900 per year! Here’s how we will break down your pay according to your job duties performed:

Daycare: Provide care and comfort to your children. Schedule play time, nap time and meals. $182 per week.

Chef/Cook: Responsible for family meals in a timely fashion. Also responsible to feed those unexpected friends your children bring home. $238 per week.

Dishwasher: Responsible for washing and putting away all dishes. Will also include some food prep and menu planning. $225 per week.

Dry Cleaner: Responsible for all grass stains, white whites and will take a vow to not shrink your daughter’s favorite sweater. Will wash, dry and fold laundry. $199 per week.

Taxi Driver: Will transport children to ball games, opens house, school activities and birthday parties. Every effort will be made to be on time…no guarantees. Conflicting schedules may pre-empt above guidelines. $362 per week.

Maid: Keeping the house tidy…vacuum, dust, clean restrooms, change sheets…and anything else that comes along. $182 per week

Tutor: Responsible for assisting with homework. Must be proficient in spelling, writing and math! $228 per week.

Recreation Coordinator: Organize play dates, camping trips, water park days, picnics and all other family fun activities. $303 per week.

In addition, you will be a nurse to take care of all boo-boos, gardener, referee (when children bicker) and magician (to find everything family members have misplaced). If these duties are performed well, you will receive a 3% bonus. You always knew you were worth a lot, right. No amount of money or huge salary can replace the fantastic job and the love you provide in the occupation of MOM!

Any takers?

Was it Really Necessary?
Editor: Imagine going away on vacation and coming back to find your home destroyed, that will happen to at least 12 pairs of Ospreys when they return to Cassel in March and find that PG&E has destroyed all their nests that have been there for 20 years or more. What a sad day for them and for us. We always enjoy watching them raise their babies.

Thank You
Losing a loved one is never a happy time. I will never be able to thank all of the wonderful people who took the time to send condolences, phone calls and to attend Joan’s memorial. We were overwhelmed by the number of people who shared their memories. It was a happy gathering. Joan was self-employed for 17 years. Many of her long-time customers attended. The common thread was they enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the quality of merchandise plus a hearty laugh. I am positive Joan is in a better place and was also pleased to see so many taking part in her memorial. May she rest in piece.
My children and I thank you.
