    Can you drive a stick shift?

    Yup. I learned on mom's 1950-something veewee bug and dad's 1940-something chevy pickup sometime in the late '50s. Didn't get a license until later, tho. Haven't driven one for at least a decade.

    A similar situation occurred in my city some years ago It was a huge scandal when it came out in the papers. I knew his wife and really hurt for her...

    Onto the next step.

    You might also look into TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), an international weight loss support group. In addition to day and evening meetings at local chapters, they also have an online program at TOPS Club Inc. - Affordable Weight Loss Support. It's a non-profit, so it's a lot less expensive than the proprietary programs.

    Gay Marriage

    I am in favor of gay marriage--I can't see where that pleasant neighbor couple walking their little poodle is going to affect my 48-year marriage! I have often thought that we should do it like the French do. A civil ceremony for everyone, to be followed by a religious ceremony (they can't have the religious one without proof of a previous civil ceremony) as desired.

    Bill O'Reilly - Obama Super Bowl Interview

    Wow! 40-odd interruptions. It's amazing that Obama managed to say anything.

    What is the best way 4 me 2 lose weight. Need 2 lose 60pds?

    If cost is an issue, you might look into TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly). It's a non-profit support group, and for that reason is less expensive. The annual membership is currently $26 a year, and the chapter dues usually run about $4 to $5 a month. Each member gets a weight goal and, if needed, a diet from his or her health care provider. In the absence of a specific diet, the organization recommends an exchange diet--somewhat like a diabetic diet. For more information and the location of chapters in your area, you can check out their website at TOPS Club Inc. - Affordable Weight Loss Support . It's worked well for me. I've lost 30# and am approaching my goal.

    Remembering the Reason for the Season

    It's been too many years since I sang in "the Messiah", (Oh, my goodness, has it been 50?) but if I'd been there I"d have been lip-synching, at least!

    Firefighters let man's house burn over unpaid fee

    In an interview, he said he offered to pay on the spot "whatever he needed to pay" and they refused to take the money or to help him. I heard another report that said that the same (?) department did help another family who hadn't paid. In addition, Mr. Cranick said he simply forgot to pay it.
  9. Well, I don't know who's paying for it or even how they do it, but the ad at the top of this page (and every page) of this website (as well as some other websites) is an attack on my congressman.

    Why I Don't Eat Chicken

    My dad didn't eat chicken either, for somewhat the same reason. Born in 1900, and the only boy with 6 sisters. Guess who got to do all the chores in the chicken house?

    Your Favorite Politician And Why

    My favorite has to be Wayne Morse, Oregon Senator from 1944 to 1968. He was first elected as a Republican, declared himself to be independent, joined the Democratic party at the behest of LBJ and was reelected twice as a Democrat. He was described as a maverick. Gee, you think?

    Seeds of hate crimes

    Check out The Interfaith Alliance (http://www.interfaithalliance.org). Their goals are to educate religious leaders, candidates, the media and TIA members about the proper role that religion can and should have during a campaign and to get out the vote.

    Seeds of hate crimes

    After listening to Swaggert et all, I'm inclined to think that the "religious right" is neither.
