    There are certainly a lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a nice level to convey up. I offer the ideas above as common inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you convey up the place an important factor will probably be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round issues like that, however I'm sure that your job is clearly recognized as a good game.

    Please ... the name is "Kaffeklatsch" not coffee klatsch. When using foreign words, it would be so good to spell them correctly in their original language and not "americanize" them. It literally means "gossip at coffee hour". Kaffeeklatsch is for the Germans what High Tea is for the Britons.

    Good Evening,Fearless Leader...I seem to have been Moderated on a 5@5 post,which is a quote from a very Famous song. Yes, In the "old" Days you would have threatened me with the Spatula...Well,I'm a Big Boy now. I can tie my own shoes,put on clean clothes and say "Yes Sir and Yes M'am" with the Best of them. But Kat, To be moderated without using the F-Word which is prevalent on the weekends by others, The S-Word which just all of a sudden appears on ESPN and should be O.K. to use.....That is Not me. I have learned what the Rules are concerning Your website,Yet to be Moderated for a Famous Quote from a very memorable Song.... concerning 9/11 and staying on subject regarding 5@5-this one boggles my mind. Love You Both tho. RHx.

Once I get into a close to normal range, I will go in, re-test and enroll in school for January. Thanks for remembering.

    Oh... I'm about to do an unofficial taste test.

    I love British candy. Say what you want about British food, their sweet tooth leads to some excellent candy. Cadbury is a British company, and their sweets are better in Brittan then they are here.

    So, Nestle in Brittan has a bar called the Aero- a milk chocolate bar filled with bubbles of air, made by Nestlé and primarily sold in the UK and some other countries (most with long term ties to the UK). It's quite excellent, and when I'm in Canada I make it a point to pick one up.

    Now, at the store last night, I found the Hershey's Air Delight... which looks like it's their response to the Aero... *AND* it's US based.

    I'm about to comparison test them for myself.

      Tried it – similar mouth feel, but Hershey chocolate tastes far different than nestles or cadburys. I agree and LOVE the Aero bars. I have family in Canada and get regular "CARE" packages from them. That candy, and COFFEE CRISP (remember that one???) are always included.

    Dear Women
    When you elect to run while wearing a short (above knees) skirt please keep the following tips in mind:
    1. knees close together – this will prevent the skirt from sliding up and showing things most people don't want to see
    2. under NO circumstances should you grab the end of the skirt and pull it up while running, again most people don't want to see all of you
    3. panties are your friend, this is especially true if you disregard the above two tips
    I understand that things happen and that running in a skirt sometimes can't be avoided but remember only you can prevent crotch shots.
    I am now going to find some brain bleach so I can get that image out of my mind.

        I'm not sure why she was running in to the bank, I was just going to deposit a birthday check when i heard heels clicking at a fast pace behind me. I turned to see what was going on and wound up seeing a lot more than I bargained for. Once I entered the bank I didn't see her, so maybe an employee running late?

      Morning Lil' Buddy, talked to my neighbor last nite on the phone and he told me a new fire started up about 5 miles from the hacienda. Luck was on our side and the local firefighters have it under control.

        Oooo math! Cool.
        How can you turn 8-1/2 on your birthday? Either WD is really 54, which'll make you 9 or she's 70, which'll make you 10. ;)
        Either way, I'm older than you! Crap.
