I still have leaves in my yard. :p

As do I, and I encourage anyone who lived through the horrible TP shortages earlier this year to come to my house this weekend and haul away as many as you possibly can.  Don't risk running out!  The most choice leaves are under the shrubs and forsythia bushes, so be sure and rake those out and take them with you.

My wife and I got to our local BJ's a little before 9:00 this morning to take advantage of the senior hours.  As we were entering, I noticed that almost every person leaving had toilet paper in their cart.  After about ten minutes, they opened the doors to the rest of the public, and immediately there was a mad dash to the TP section.  Luckily, there was plenty there, so we grabbed some and some paper towels as well, but there definitely felt like that same sense of panic there that we experienced last spring, and I would bet that by the middle of the day all the paper goods were gone.

i had slipped and got complacent. the beginning of the panic was my wakeup call. thanks to that, i saw why my grandmom always had so dam much extra good in the house. mostly canned goods, and a bunch frozen. since then, i've bought a little extra every time i go shopping. i've got me n mom pretty well set for now.

Speaking of shortage, so I'm buying paint for our 2nd villa and they not only have very few cans of paint at Sherwin Williams, they have the NERVE to charge a 4% "Supply chain" fee.

I've never been a fan of Sherwin Williams, it's just that all the approved colors are Sherwin Williams coded.  Yes, I know homodepot can match it, but we just wanted to go grab the color and leave, not deal with some moron in the paint department out on work-release.

I could understand the FEE if you actually had the store stocked up.  Apparently, you let the stock go, didn't pay any extra to get more in, and just decided empty shelves was a good excuse to charge extra.

At least the new windows are supposed to be in soon.  We only ordered those at the end of April.   The supply chain was better during WWII when they were running around collecting pots from housewives to melt down for scrap.

The reaction button really needs an angry face emoji.  At the very least.

Jus' sayin'.

    • Does this apply to existing NJ FID holders? Or does one still need to renew our current FID card 4 years from today?
    • When did this start? I know its been on the books for years, but they've also circumvented it for years via a camden judge ruling public safety supersedes it (if investigation not complete in that 60 days), and using that as precedent. Is it now being enforce?
    • Thanks I followed up with resolution to the immediate problem, which doesn't seem to reflect well on Identogo. I have my ORI (Woodbine SP). Regarding the CCN (I'm not to that point yet) should I try calling NJSP Firearms DIv, since my local NJSP contact refused to give me any information about id numbers for SP 642?
    • I'll be DAMNED (or perhaps NJ and/or Identogo should be). After failing at electronic enrollment, I went to the "PRINT-N-GO" enrollment section, which I had previously used for fingerprint cards for out-of state CHP applications. I received the same "Multiple matches" error. I started playing around with my personal information fields, and discovered that the apparent culprit is my phone number! I supplied my mobile phone number, since I plan to use that on my SP 642 (and since my land-line number may be going away soon). My mobile service is through Ting, which is a pay-as-you-go T-Mobile reseller. When I changed the PRINT-N-GO form to use my land line number, I was allowed to proceed! So, I went back to the electronic fingerprinting enrollment form, entered the land-line number, and it look slike all is good to go (I am up to the point where I am prompted to enter my ORI - I will update if I encounter more obstacles). But how effed up is that restriction? I must assume that sometime in the distant past (I have had the number for 4 - 5 years) my number was assigned to someone else who created an Identogo record. Um, in spite of the option to keep a number when changing providers, mobile numers get reassigned ALL THE TIME. Unless my assumptions are incorrect and there is some alternative explanation, this would seem to be biting a significant number of people in the a$$; not just applicants for concealed carry, but people applying for government jobs, etc. If I did not have my other phone number, I would  be stuck with no recourse except possibly to try to contact someone at Identigo who could conprehend and rectify the matter, and I suspect that would be an extremely long and frustrating process, if even proved to be possible. If you intend to enroll for fingerprinting by Identogo as part of your SP642 applications, you should be aware of this potential glitch. SHEESH!!!!
