    Last reliable word was still that some will receive a nice treat in their Halloween bags next week.

    And I wanted to win Megamillions. Climb on board the Train of Reality and light up a cigar with me while we wait.

    If you haven't heard a peep it's probably what is coming. The Congressional offices know for sure, or can find out for sure. I've had a few people call and have them ask for info for the same reason, like fixing a leaky roof that can't wait another winter, etc. Official DJs should be out before the end of November last I heard as a target date.

    Round 1 is supposed to happen before Thanksgiving, so 1199As have to drop at least 3-4 weeks before that. Word on the street is that the Great Pumpkin might drop in with some goodies....

    Default similar threads

    I just checked the 'similar threads' at the bottom of this page. Looks like the anxiously waiting and skepticism posts are about identical to now. Four years later. (In August)

    Nothing else in the fire service changes very often, you were thinking this would?

    Talking

    So my cell phone rings and the screen just says "202" So I don't recognize the number and let it go to voicemail and about an hour later I checked my voicemail and the voice on the other end goes..." Good morning this is So and So from FEMA, I am calling in regard to your Assistance to Firefighters Grant"... ok at this point I fall off my chair thinking 10 questions or something about a clarification on our 1099

    So, sort of like the Dodgers and Manny, that dream didn't last long either. She was calling about a question on a grant being closed out from 2008.

    Talk about a rush!!!

    So I guess I'll haul myself back up on this barstool and buy a round for the house for bruising the floor.....

    Back to the waiting game...

    They did throw the station grants in the middle this year, and it seems to be twice as long a waiting period, and the posters four years are mostly different other than you and Kurt.

    As far as changes are concerned. Learned about the impending Station Grant rumor on March 2nd which was announced a bit later. Then one dealing with a help desk guy, who relayed to me that he showed the 1199's as begining on Sept. 8th. Both of these convinced me that the rumor mill around the fire service grants can cover both ends of false and true. So yes and no about the changes. Pretty good waffeling, but with reason.

    We've been doing the Waiting Bar thing for so long, we're gonna have to find a grant to pay for a group trip to the Betty Ford Clinic.... I wonder if we can get a group rate?

    There are new developments with ACORN, the NY Times and the administrations war on Fox news. All are related. Seems the White House was way, way more involved with the current ACORN issue than the president let on in a press conference. Was on the radio today, but I only had time for a minute of listening to the story.

    anyway, it will develop more as the day goes on I'm sure.

    He did a lot of work with/for them in Chicago, of course there were favors called in since they did so much work with registering voters to vote. I doubt he had anything do to with the person stealing the money, and doubt he did anything wrong in his dealings with them, but can't see any reason ACORN would have been tapped to help with the Census. Feds hire direct help for that and only direct employee help, not groups to handle it and then turn it over. Was something fishy there.
