I am making an attempt at staying on topic in the threads these days. I went searching for an ingredient information the other day and went through four pages of searches before I gave up and resorted to google+Susan’s.
This is the biggest reason why I don’t spend more time on The Hive of late as topics are scattered and willy nilly all over the place with little tidbits of information scattered in a post. I do understand that conversation goes here and there, but I just don’t have the time to search through pages and posts looking for information on a various oil. I would like to stay on topic while discussing the information on a thread (and it might be selfish of me to say this), so I have time to call people and talk about oils and various ingredients.
I am guilty of side tracking a conversation just as much as the next person. Maybe if we all found ourselves getting sidetracked from the original posters message, we can copy and paste and put it here with a little note directing readers here to the Random Musing thread.July 3, 2017 at 12:52 am #22990
Cyn-> what job are you looking into? You’re trying to create a new job? Does that mean you plan on doing some creation sales at some point???
Belinda-> my friend with a few kids discovered the “easy” form of parenting. Ipads. I’m sure Emma is enjoying every second she spends playing with you! I saw your fancy new bottle stash on Instagram and I have bottle envy! Pump tops?
She-> I remember having my wisdom teeth pulled years ago. It was awesome! The surgeon had dreamy eyes! And my diet consisted of milk shakes. Congrats on the soap jelly! I have heard many weird things about it.July 3, 2017 at 5:48 am #22991SimplySheParticipant
Well Penny, it took a couple tries to get it right,but the end result is a fun wobbly fragrant cleanser for the kids 🙂 I learned that you have to be patient, really patient in letting the bits melt and when you put the glycerin/carrageenan with the surfactant, BLAM! it gels. Like instantly, no time for colour and fragrance fast. Magically:) but it doesn’t fall apart in the tub, it acts like a bar of soap that’s fun to play with.July 3, 2017 at 6:59 pm #23006
Oooh soap jelly! My niece, aka The Princess Keegan, would love that. At this rate, she’s gonna have more goodies than most adults. She be spoiled. LolJuly 3, 2017 at 7:10 pm #23007
Okay, let me discuss my job a bit. First, if you know anything about US insurance- I work for the green lizard. Currently I work in the service dept. I do everything from reissuing cancelled policies, dealing with rate increases and more. I’m your everyday service counselor. I applied to go to underwriting. I want to help deal with the policies themselves- move ups, move downs, cancelling the policy, etc.
That said…there’s another position that exists but doesn’t anymore. I want to work in IT. Specifically, I want to work on our reference material for all departments. It needs to be rewritten, reformatted, and less doublespeak to help sales, service, claims to be more effective. Right now, there’s a team who adds to the material, but none who update and revamp it. That’s the job I’m trying to create. I’m doing sample pages. Showing how it can be- revamped, easier to read and update, less searching for the right material, and increasing efficiency. So, yeah. That’s my dream job. It’d be full time- no calls, getting thousands of pages fixed for the teams.
So, yeah. I have needs to do more yet different. 😂July 3, 2017 at 7:18 pm #23008
I’m currently looking for insurance for The Move so we can sell. I have about 18 months to learn all I can about everything and insurance is a big ol pain in the tush. No one wants to reply to my messages because I am not there in country at the moment and their websites suck for information.
From what you just described, EVERY insurance company needs to do this!July 3, 2017 at 7:29 pm #23010
Yup. Depending on where you’re going, do yourself a favour- get a driving abstract from the country you’re in, if you’ve been insured there so you can prove you’ve got a good driving record once you arrive in the new country. Also, most credit cards will cover some insurance issues if you’re renting a vehicle and if you buy the rental company insurance while you’re getting settled. If you know the big city you’ll be in or near, look up a major insurance agency, call them and have them use their books to get you some rates.July 3, 2017 at 9:32 pm #23011
Ummm…. I don’t drive. I haven’t driven a car in about seventeen years?
I’m a public tansportation kind of girl! It is sometimes a pain in the arse not traveling when I want too, but it gives me time to reply to messages and read the news!July 3, 2017 at 10:21 pm #23012
Lol. Depending on where you are in the US, that’s not a easy way to live. But in most larger areas, it’s doable. You can still follow the same for health, life, etc. Sometimes a major agent has all under one umbrella.
It’s like this is my job or something. 😬😲July 5, 2017 at 3:25 am #23021
Hummm…. I wonder. Is this your job?July 5, 2017 at 7:58 am #23023
Try to find an insurance broker in the area you’re looking at. They don’t work for one company and will get you quotes, info, etc..from different insurance companies that fit your needs.July 5, 2017 at 8:03 am #23024
Twin, that writing job sounds perfect for you. Maybe if they’re not ready for you to do that, you can step into the underwriting position and keep working on pitching the other job you want to create.
Barb, my middle son lives in Chicago and he has no car. Chicago has a great public transit system. I know NYC does too, but both those areas are high $$$$ cost of living. I live near a big city and the public transit is crap. You have to have a car if you want to live near me!😜😁July 5, 2017 at 2:16 pm #23033
The thought of owning my own car kind of makes my head spin. I guess it is the same as owning my own house. Crazy head going on.
I know some parts of Canada have decent public transportation too. But I’ve my eye on Europe.
As I’ve said, the insurance companies don’t really want to work with me right now as I am not in country and I am not looking for now. I am looking for 18 months from now. It really is a pain in the butt. They reply to messages a week or two later- oh and don’t get me started on assessors!!!! I’ll drive you mental with their shenanigans- some insurance dude told me that I need “crafters insurance” and I asked if that will cover working with lye, and selling products made with lye to people. “I don’t know, let me get back to ye”.
It’s been a month.July 5, 2017 at 6:16 pm #23049
Lords above, they’re nuts. There is specialty insurance for that. You can check out ACT or Handmade insurance. They should help with the business part of it all.
Bah humbug about those others. It’s crazy for them to be so slow and off putting.July 6, 2017 at 7:24 am #23050
I’ve seen that Handcrafter’s insurance too. I know there’s a group/guild/whatever it’s called that has a group policy here in the US for homecrafters and small businesses. Maybe a good place to start would be that kind of group in the area you’re looking at. I would think they’d have knowledge of such things and gladly share it with you. In fact, you might get help in other areas such as the assessors and such too. Good luck!
