    I'm quite happy where I'm at now. I always just surf the ads just to see who's looking and how many ads are out there. It's an interesting scale of how we're doing. Thanks anyway.

    I'd look forward to that if things ever slow down. We're busier than a one-legged man in an ass kickin contest. Also lookin for a res/lt comm/ref guy

    Just surfed the ads and there's a ton of 'em lookin, sweet for us! Saw a former employer lookin and now I wonder who quit. The refridgeration ad is still there, too!

    Last year my accountant misspelled Refrigeration on every page of my taxes. (about 70 sheets).

    They reprinted them 3 times, and still missed it on about 10 pages (at least ones that I found)

    Refridgeration.

    Wait! That's got to be right...since "fridge" has a "D" in it!

    LOL. Refridgeration gets 156,000 hits on google, always a refridgeration item or 4 or more for sale on Ebay. Must be 1 of the most screwed up words.

    It is subconscious.

    The proper word, as we all know, is "refrigeration". There is no "D" in that word.

    However, common slang terms used are "fridge" or "fridgerator". Please take note of the "D" present in these terms.

    The terms refrigerator, fridge, and fridgerator are so commonly used, and interchangeably so, that people subconsciously keep putting the "D" back into the word.

    Funny as hell actually.
