Well I'm back from sunny Houston and now I have a relaxing weekend ahead. Missed the snow though so I'm heading up hiking on Sunday behind the ski hill. Can't wait!! Nothing better than snow and sunshine, except maybe a hot shower after traveling all day in a plane. Gotta love Fridays.
Yes, but like Canada it is also a Capitalist country. Sometimes they pay you, sometimes they don't. They also have strict requirements for who qualifies to receive public holiday pay. It really is determined by who you work for.
I get most of the federal holidays off and paid because I work for the state. This means Christmas, New Years, Martin Luther King Jr Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, etc. (not exactly in that order). But, as a state worker, I don't get all of them off. We do get other extra days that Federal workers don't get, like Christmas Eve and the day after Thanksgiving. I've worked at some jobs where there were less days off. Right now, we don't get another holiday until the end of May.
My plans are great, tomorrow I´m going to work. I´ll have to drive 250km to get there. The good thing about it is that I´m going with my partner and my daughter and we will stay in a hotel on the top of "Serra da Estrela" (Star Mountain) the biggest one in continental Portugal.
It´s also great because I was not able to work for too much time and now I feel like I´m profitable again .
Saw Iron Man last Thursday (May 1). Really nice special effects. But the movie in its entirety didn't leave my jaws down and my eyeballs popping out like the movie Transformers did. (Transformers really upped my expectations of movies in this genre. )
Haven't seen Iron Man yet but my 4 1/2 year old grandson saw it and thought it was "COOL". Probably wait for it to get to the cheap movies or just rent it. Nothing coming I want to see except Indiana Jones! Love the adventure and Harrison Ford's not bad either!
I've been experiencing a drop in traffic for the last week or so. I've been seeing a lot of people in the forums talking about how they are seeing increases in traffic, but I am seeing the opposite. Is anyone else...
I recently signed up for a TripAdvisor.com account. The thought of using it to promote any of my travel hubs didn't initially occur to me when I signed up. My husband and I like to read reviews of potential travel...
So in the past 6 months we have all endured a real rollercoaster ride thanks to the big G. Many of us are still really struggling while some of us have reached new heights with our page views. I am happy to...
My single page is getting nearly ten times the traffic it received shortly after Fred hit. That is still only half of what it got before Fred, but it's a step in the right direction.Anyone else seeing an improvement?
