To be clear, neither Chaffin nor anyone else has any real proof of what happened to Cruz. While it looks like poisoning, there is nothing to say he couldn't have gotten into something he shouldn't have. After all, dogs will be dogs, even if they're champions. For now, it's just a very sad situation. “It’s devastating,” said Lynette Blue, one of Cruz's owners. “We keep thinking of the various scenarios, and it’s starting to feel like something we may never know.”
The second reason I've always thought the Hatter was underrated was, well, because under the right circumstances, he could easily be Batman's most dangerous villain. His mind control technology is damned powerful (he's taken over Batman on more than a few occasions), and if placed correctly there is nothing to say he couldn't take over any of the most powerful heroes in the DC Universe. Only his lack of ambition, and absolute madness brought on by subjecting himself to his own technology, has kept him from being among the most powerful villains in the DC Universe.
Third, learn timing. You don't always have to be first, but you do need to be timely. Being there with the right idea or product at the right time is better than being early or late. There wasn't much Edison could do to wait 90 years for his doll to be viable in the marketplace, but there is nothing to say he couldn't have created the genesis for the idea and then left that for his heirs to fulfill when the necessary technology had reached a cost and size ratio that was likely to make such a doll a success.
A Ministry of Defence spokesman confirmed the threat, saying: “They’ve been saying this for a month now but we’re confident that they won’t be able to carry out the threat.” That assessment appears to have changed when officers in Iraq warned Sir Richard that Harry’s presence in the country would unleash a wave of attacks on all British troops. The Ministry of Defence insisted last night that the decision to keep the Prince back did not mean he would never serve in a war zone. “The threat level changes all the time,” said a spokesman. “There is nothing to say he couldn’t serve in Afghanistan or still go to Iraq at a later date. He could go out there in six or seven weeks time.” But experts said it would be hard to keep any royal deployment secret and greeted the claim that he could yet serve in war zones with derision.
While I don't know really the status of the Guardia Military, we do know that they had the technology to create dragon tanks. Or at least -A- dragon tank. Granted, it wasn't very powerful at the time. But there is nothing to say they couldn't have improved on the technology. And, if Lucca could use guns, there is nothing really stopping Guardia from using them. But, again, this is just speculation. The end result is that they still got their butts whooped.
You will be able to remortgage after 2 years as long as you have a reasonable ltv and you haven't defaulted, your credit rating should go up. However, if you cant afford 5% is a mortgage right for you? Rates are historically low, there is nothing to say they couldn't rise in the future. If you struggle to pay 5% you might get into difficulty if they did rise.
What about all the "what-if’s" in your life – do you still believe them? What if I’d studied this in college? What if I had taken that job instead of this one? Everything would be different – right? Wrong. Those crossroads have been reached and choices have been made and there is no going back. However, there is the insight that you had when you considered that choice in the first place. Why were you drawn to photography, or languages, or the idea of foreign travel? What longing would have been met, what skill would have been used, what experiences would have been gained? And how could you capture some of that right now from where you are this minute? There is nothing to say you couldn’t take a class in photography, or a language, or even get some certification that would open up a new door. Let the past guide you with its tugs of interest, and see if you are ready to put them into play now.
All of your comments are SO helpful! Thank you.
I don't feel comfortable with any decision yet - but hearing from you all helps.
I'm in the UK, so medical insurance etc doesn't apply.
My current contract doesn't include a company maternity package - so I'm not losing anything there.
The main financial difference for me would be moving from SMP to MA, which I've calculated to be about £1750 shortfall... but with a prospective £5k increase in salary, that would be more than covered.
I'm also thinking - even if I wasn't pregnant right now... there is nothing to say I couldn't/wouldn't get pregnant soon after starting and go off on very early mat leave... so there's not a huge difference....
Because our concern is for school children of KY & if this kind of violence is able to happen in other states or cities there is nothing to say it couldn't be here, we all need to be aware of these events that are happening. We all hope & pray in never happens close to home.
Our hearts & thoughts go out to the family of victim teacher Colleen Ritzer & all the staff & students of Danvers High School that lost a beloved teacher.
