No doubt. Depending on the industry, living up here is expensive but proportionate to wages. However, basic service jobs don't pay well enough to cover the cost of living unless you have two wage earners in the same household.

Thus, I preach to folks younger than me that education and vocational skills are crucial. College isn't for everyone, and I don't think that everyone should attend. But if you aren't going to college, I think that you should at least be learning a skilled trade. Low level service jobs should be considered transitory, not career options.

Remind me, where is "here" again?

Down here in SC houses are cheap, gas is cheap, taxes are lower, but wages are lower. Opposite for my parents in Calgary, everything is higher.... Wages too.

Wish I could find the finished photos. They look 10x better than that. Only downside to that patio was halfway through it we realized that the pattern that the customer picked out wasn't going to work due to how many of the larger pavers we received.

Being the sober one helps a lot though lol.
@BassAckwards
Okay wow... That sounds scary. Glad nothing happen.

It's been a little slow at work lately.. Times like this give me a chance to clean my workspace. The photo attached is one such day a while back where I got hooked up with dual 24" monitors. Sure is nice having all of that screen real estate.




Also, this lone MacBook Pro traveled about 2500 miles on it's own pallet. I am pretty sure Apple ate it big time on the shipping.
