When I left for university, my parents must have thought they'd won the lottery. For them, my absence meant more space; an extra room; fewer meals to prepare; and possibly even reckless sex on the kitchen counter. (Yeah. Right.)

Now, the point of this post is not the real or imagined shenanigans of my parents. The point is absence and oversight. Because I was no longer claiming squatter's rights at the homestead, my mother felt herself suddenly empowered to systematically remove my chattels and declare my former pad to be her long sought after 'sewing room'. In other words, my stuff was either tossed into the bin and removed at curb-side by the garbage man, or distributed amongst the neighbourhood riff-raff. My stuff. The collections I'd spent a childhood and adolescence putting together. Needless to say, words were exchanged that first Christmas home. (And though I am not one to hold a grudge much past a fourth decade, she has been reminded of this traitorous betrayal every Mother's Day since... albeit with jolly good slaps on the back and thin-lipped grins.)

Absence and oversight. Which brings us to Love and Lizard shit. Man, I feel your pain.

It's refreshing to see the word "shit" actually published in a newspaper; people would lose their fucking minds if that wormed its way into The New York Times.

Everytime I see feces spelled faeces, I have to read it as "fay-eces"

Woozie: Yeah, It makes a change from reading 's--t' or 'expletive deleted'.

I guess George Carlin is still right about 'Shit' being one of the Seven Words You Can't Say on TV.

Addendum to previous comment:

"You know the 7, don't you, that you can't say on television?
"Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, CockSucker, MotherFucker, and Tits"
Those are the heavy seven. Those are the ones that'll infect your soul,
curve your spine, and keep the country from winning the war.
"Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, CockSucker, MotherFucker, and Tits"
Wow! ...and Tits doesn't even belong on the list. That is such a friendly
sounding word. It sounds like a nickname, right? "Hey, Tits, come here,
man. Hey Tits, meet Toots. Toots, Tits. Tits, Toots."

Thanks, George.

Quality assurance is implemented at the schematic design stage. Mansour Engineering’s quality assurance is an inclusive review of each discipline as well as an overall discipline coordination. Quality assurance procedures include analysis of the worst case scenario for verification of specific design parameters and for each discipline’s task. Project management overview integrates schedule and cost control into each and every aspect of design. Mansour Engineering project management objective is to develop a design that satisfies all requirements and is economically feasible to construct. To that end, cost estimating is within the preview and capabilities of each discipline project leader.
