Re: Poll: how often do you clean out your car?

My Escape, when I first got it, we kept it really clean. London was 6 months old. When she got older...I got lax. And then Trapper came. And JD's not the...yeaaah he's totally not the cleanest guy. His truck, the couple times we've had "date night" or been able to go someplace together w/o...

Re: Let's talk baby names

I know! Luckily we'd had a girl first, and then they had their boy, b/c if we'd had a boy first and named him Raistlin and then they did a year later I would've had a coronary.

Re: Thyroid PSA

I had blood drawn for my thyroid yesterday, but won't know anything until tomorrow. I don't know if that's the problem or not, but I have had a lot of weight gain since I had Trapper, and I've got an insane amount of hair on my face..I feel like a yeti. I almost kind of hope there *is* a problem, so...

Re: Let's talk baby names

I had considered seeing if JD would agree to Raistlin, and figured he'd scoff at it b/c it's from my Dragonlance books that I love so much and he used to tease me about marrying an elf and living in a mushroom. So a guy in town we know had a son, named him Raistlin, and JD tells me "Oh wow, tha...

Interesting! Reading all the comments is interesting as well. I've read serial killer books up that wazoo and I don't recall reading about the Benders. I gotta go look thru my books again.

Re: My 20,000th post salutes $20,000 giver

There's a very wealthy person in a small town about 45 minutes from here who pays everyone's water/electricity bill for the month of December every year. I like to hear stuff like that.

Re: When to Stop Sending Photos as a Christman Card

I sent them out the Christmas right after we got married-I had two different ones, a funny one and a pretty one, depending on who it was going to. I think I may have sent some out the second year. Aaand that was the extent of it. We are down to getting like...three or so. From people on JD's side th...

Re: HAS POLICE TRAINING CAUSED VIOENCE

Yep. He probably does. And he probably thinks women deserve it when they're beaten. And kids too. And he's probably one of the cops who kills all the dogs. And I bet he's in on the conspiracy to kill all the blacks and take over the country.

Re: Round August Vintage. What color?

I'd be no help. My three stone ering is L/M AVC's. If JD would've not known what to get, and gone whiter/not tinted, I'd have been unhappy w/it but not understood why, bc I didn't know until I saw them, how much I like warmer colors.

Re: HAS POLICE TRAINING CAUSED VIOENCE

This is how I know you don't have a spouse who is in law enforcement. Sexually promiscuous behavior is something else officers have to deal with-the aftermath of it.

Re: HAS POLICE TRAINING CAUSED VIOENCE

I saw a post today on a law enforcement page, giving officers a heads up about play guns altered to fit real guns inside. And real guns that looked like they would be fake--pink and glittery Hello Kitty was one. And b/c of stupidity like that, we know what will happen. When an officer is shot by a r...

As far as "running away" "getting the hell out of dodge" if shit goes down, um, no that's not their job. Their job is to take care of shit, not run away. And how easy is it to make split second decisions? Split second life and death decisions? I get that nobody wants people to di...

Things that would work toward making things better, are not things that are "easy". They *should* be. But they won't be. I can tell you right now, people will throw fits. Because--there should be training. Extensive, ongoing, training, in various things. Who pays for that? The officer? No,...
