Aug 13th 2012 12:04PM @ Suzy... You mentioned "thieves" but missed out on "more THAN"...another error. But at least I understood that well enough.
Aug 13th 2012 11:58AM I don't quite understand what you mean to say as your use of " there" makes the whole sentence entirely unclear to me.
"There" refers to s specific place...over there!
"Their" indicates ownership...Lets go over to their house to visit!
"They're" refers to a contraction of "they are"...They're at home, alright, the lights are on."
I think a whole generation of people missed out on English 101.
As for thievery, this is from a long time before Islam and they might have used the laws of Hammurabi or whoever else was kicking around back then. Whatever.
Apr 19th 2010 9:01AM Me too! I play the organ including foot pedals, etc. and read a book (or read the sheet music if it is a new piece) at the same time. Fun stuff. Been doing this for decades...
It started in my childhood; I used to read a comic book, practice piano, and carry on a conversation at the same time. Maybe it has something to do with development of the right brain???
Oct 15th 2009 10:31AM Are you kidding? Bean prices have almost tripled these past few months. Beans that were costing 59C a pound are now 1.59 for a pound bag. Black beans and red beans are higher. This is crazy! My friends are doing as I did - buying 3 to 4 chickens to get a few eggs a day, growing their own chilies and tomatoes on their porches in nice big pots, and I even grow some Chicken lettuce in containers for my girls' added treat. (I eat it too). Even on a fire escape you can put a couple of flower pots. We come from million year survival crews...we can and will survive!
Apr 29th 2009 5:34PM As a lifelong Republican who has had it with the current Republican party up to my eyeballs, I think these contrary meatheads ought to applaud Obama's effort to get us out of the mess that George W. left. Clinton left office with a surplus and Bush air guitared out leaving us drowning in trillions of dollars in debt to a Fascist police state! Can't any of these people do the math? Bush cakewalked us down this road to Fascism - and it damn sure isn't going to be any waltz in the park trying to undo the damage!
Mar 11th 2009 6:46PM Honey, I am 74 and stil working full time as a CCRN in the ICU unit. Actually, there are quite a few of us over 65.
Sep 5th 2008 8:26AM Wendell - look past the trees for the forest!.. Mike, you are correct. At work the other day I told a few of my coworkers (those that were interested enough to listen) that this week's bullish market was just so much ca ca and that the bottom would drop out shortly. Apparently it did. My personal belief is that there are super powers at work that plan to sift out the unwary to get every last nickel and dime. Leveling the playing field, so to speak. Either that or a stock market genie playing with a yo-yo.
May 10th 2008 8:04AM To the petulant fools who would desert the ranks and vote for McCain rather than Obama I say that you need to go back to school and study critical thinking courses. You, also, are part of the rule or ruin people - like Hillary. Spoilers, all of you. Obama to win in November!!!
May 7th 2008 12:55AM As Clinton continues her "Rule or Ruin" antics, Obama will not be a winner either. Voters - Republicans and Democrats alike - will be so disgusted with the whole shebang that come November McCain will steamroll his way into the presidency. Thanks a lot Hillary for gutting the Democratic party.
May 7th 2008 12:47AM Is America ready for Bill Clinton back in the White House again? Give me a break - we need the Clintons like we need ragweed.
