    West coast - we eat dinner.

    We sit on a couch or a sofa, but my great-grandparents who came from Missouri had a Davenport.

    Don't know. My mom learned to play the guitar at 63 and my grandfather learned to play the harmonica when he was in his mid-seventies. So the upper age limit is older than 70...

    I'll join you in disliking banana bread. Bleah. I'll add ripe (overripe, in my opinion - I like solid yellow, even with pale green tips if I'm going to eat a banana) bananas, because they are too...

    My older son does have dyslexia, and ended up having oral spelling tests. It's really kind of a weird juxtaposition: he got good grades when spelling orally. He relies heavily on Spell Check as an...

    I have a 2011 Jetta Sportwagen TDI (diesel) and I absolutely love it. Never had a problem, and I have gotten as good as 52 MPG on my trips from Sacramento to Portland, OR. (Bonus: the engine says,...

    Wow. She sounds like a sister from another mother to my grandmother, who retired from playing the organ for the church after 74 years at the age of 90 in 2011.

    Sounds like your mom is well loved.

    Used to drive me nuts when I was a kid, but it dawned on me that it was really quite profound.

    You also never could say "I'm bored" around her because she would just fire back, "Well, stop being...

    I might as well not own any mirrors. I never really look into them except to check the state of my hair...so, I'm just letting things to what they will and not worry about it.

    I thought it was my vertigo acting up (I woke up feeling a little dizzy but didn't know it was a quake until quite a bit later) but Sacramento is a little far to really feel the quake. Woke up my...

    I never read the handle of the poster at first. I'm more interested in the thought, I guess...or I am just anti-social. Not sure what that says about me.

    Well, bless her heart.

    She's in a deep hole, but if she wants to dig deeper, that's her own lookout. I'm all for helping where I can, but this is not a good use of charity in my book. Sorry, but I...

    It was pretty funny, about a guy who got tired of perfect lawns and went nuts through the neighborhood with his weed whacker. She made albums of her filk songs, though. She's not a stellar singer but...
