"I am currently reading any book I can by Christopher Moore. He's hilarious! I haven't laughed out loud at a book in quite a while. Now I look silly in public. :) I got started with him by reading Lamb."
"I, in general, don't have a whole lot of really great friends because I can't find anyone who has a personality that fits with mine. It usually ends up that I just don't click with people that often. I did meet my best friend about 4…"
"It's a silly law and it made me feel ridiculous to not be able to buy an article of clothing because it wasn't 'essential' under the blue laws. The places that are allowed to sell alcohol on Sundays have to pay a HUGE amount to…"
"My husband and I are planning on having children and how to teach religion is a strange thing for us. Both of our parents are religious, but not church goers. We want them to know about all of the different religions, but not feel forced to join one…"
"It is certainly a religious thing. It is a case of "protect the faithful from their temptations, oh yeah, and everyone else too".
I actually went to a grocery store one Sunday recently and was going to buy some beer, and when I went to…"
"Me too! I read it through once and then I went back and re-read sections that pertained to me and how I could better train my dogs. I love animal behavior. My trainer teaches a class at the local college about dog behavior and I wanted to attend,…"
"So strange, your story. I was around 9 years old and a my dad brought home a feral kitten, born to a mom cat in a warehouse. The kitten had no tail and his back legs were stiff so he kind of hopped everywhere. We tried to make him an indoor cat, but…"
"Sure, you can put whatever you want to put on your car. That's why they have bumper stickers for sale.
Or they can go through the same process the people who got the "In Reason" plates did. They're just trying to make a…"
"Greenville is not a tourist spot so the blue laws are enforced. If you go to Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, etc, you will find a whole other 'world' so to speak. It is hypocrisy at it's highest form. If a place can bring in…"
Not to say that the rational side rules here, but it was a win nonetheless.
I'm not so sure that the win against McLeroy's side was as decisive as scientific fact should have had it, once all the dust settled. Still, it is a…"
"Well congrats on that! The rational side wins one...you folks in Texas have a couple of wins in a row actually after Board of Ed. dipshit, McLeroy, lost out on that 'teaching the flaws in evolutionary theory' case last month."
Greetings from Lubbock, where we finally did allow offpremise alcohol sales in our city limits in last Saturday's election. Technically, we had a small wet precinct outside of the city limits that's sold alcohol and held…"
"Yeah, we enjoy a drink on the weekends, so we usually grab a 6 pack on Fridays. Either that or we go to Barley's in downtown Greenville. Nothing's better than a pitcher of Dead Guy with a spinach salad and friends."

I just wanted to tell you that 2 of my 3 dogs are rescues. It is a great way to find a pet. There are too may good animals that are waiting to be adopted. There was a dog where I live that way found in a dumpster that survived. Though it lost most of both the ears to frostbite. It was also malnurished. This story made national news. When it gets healthy it will be up for adoption. There is already about 40 people that want to adopt the dog. I get so sick when I hear these stories. I think the lady who did this should be thrown in a dumpster in the cold! Here is a link about the dog if your interested.
