DD1 bowling alleys haven't changed much on 25 years?! Computerized scoring, computerized oil machines, high end food/beverages and A/V, a shift from predominantly league to casual, wood to synthetic lane materials, randomized multi-colored situational pins, blacklights/glow... I would argue there is no recreational activity that has survived 25 years and has changed more, way way more than say golf) which has changed on the last 5 years... In that Top Golf has become a bowling-like experience, for golf).

But all my female friends, who are married (arranged) keep saying negative things like people his age are earning close to 40LPA and he's not worth it. They also keep pointing out that he hasn't done higher studies.

For me, none of this matters because I fell in love with him for who he is, not money. CONTD....

Can we all form a union already? Get paid overtime. Get good health benefits. Get sweet satin jackets. Get iron eagle Local 151 hard hat stickers for our Macs. And get paid for pitches - cause no agency else has the guts to stop giving away hundreds of thousand of dollars of free work. Imagine four plumbers coming to your business, doing the whole job for free. Each of them. One by one. And not paying them. Your business would be burnt to the ground and you’d end up in a ditch.

Every other school that I know of in my state is either choosing remote learning to start the year or a hybrid approach, yet that was not an option for us. Are other Catholic schools I. The same boat? Stay safe!
