I do appreciate this very much. Could only have one swallow of water this morning. :) Am to arrive at 12:00 noon today. I am covered under His feathers, and have no fear - His gift, believe me! Am, I think, "mildly" anxious. I think that's normal for most humans. :) GOD bless you!

I should watch more Ken Burns films. I have to remind myself every once in a while.
I understand that if you watch an hour per evening of what he has produced so far, it would take almost a year to run out of films.

I took the car battery in to be tested because it was acting like it wasn't keeping a charge. Sure enough, it was "bad" (I could tell because the tester had a screen that gave no specific information except "bad battery", but I digress). "No problem", I thought, "because I bought this battery 3 years ago and it will be still under warranty."

I bought it July 12, 2014.

Hey I'm VERY interested. Can you give me some help on where to look for him on TV? Just Ken Burns? On Netflex? Thanks.
I love history!

Yes. Much Ken Burns on Netfix, and watch your PBS listings. Also available for purchase I bet on Amazon.

I wish we had a public forum on CPS where we could discuss our feckless President and his inability to call a spade a spade and condemn terrorism. Maybe someday. :lol:

Once upon a time I thought the Sears DieHard battery was a crazy good deal because it had a "lifetime" five-year warranty. Then I discovered that its warranty was pro-rated over that five years and when it failed after fifty-two months I was expected to pay 52/60 of its original purchase price to get a new one. My exact words were "f*** that."

I did something that was probably stupid. My ex sent some harrassing emails accusing me of everything that she herself was guilty of. Should have just ignored her and not engaged, but I was pretty pissed and dismantled her lies one by one. I hope she'll finally leave me alone now.

She did great. Slept all the way, then slept most of the night.
Tonight however seems to be party time.
