I pulled off the road, turned the car off. Opened the hood...

I think restaurants should pay their waitresses a living wage instead of expecting people to pay X gratuities on their bills.. I don't see how asking that the bread be brought with the meal is a big deal.. however sending the salad back is a lil petty. I think the last line on...

I think that is fine.
Why would they put a natural gas line under a fully mature tree? If it is 200 years old.. you can be sure the tree was there first and fully gown!!! I am sorry you are loosing the tree.

My parents had mucho car problems and that was misery. Tina, you might want to beat me with a wet noodle, but I actually caved yesterday and gave Charlie some motrin. Breaking 4 teeth (2 are still in the process) in 2 weeks has made him a very very grumpy baby. No...

I am so glad we don't live in a HOA. We would be dinged all the time for everything under the sun. My law is clover, dandelions sprinkled with a bit of lawn. It often gets too tall cause dh wont mow it. There are weeds on the side yard and our Christmas lights have been up for two years. I think our perfect, chemical lawned, neighbors hate us. Hehe. Someone even called the code enforcement officer because we had tarped bags of cement in the driveway while DH...
