    They Navy had an honor guard there, and did the ceremony, some of us watched it from inside the terminal after getting off the plane. I remember reading an article last year or so, about a plane...
  2. Wish they'd told us...fallen soldier on plane

    I flew from Atlanta, home to Boston, this afternoon. Discovered after we'd landed that the remains of the young Whittenville, MA solider killed in Afghanistan a week ago were in the cargo bay of the...

    And, yes, I plant clover purposefully too. It is a legume, so it puts nitrogen back in the soil, reducing the need for fertilizer. And it provides flowers for bees. And it stands up to dog pee and...

    I don't think it is fair at all to pick on OP out of context. NOT every neighborhood, town or even area of the country has the same culture as far as property maintenance goes.

    You are the "worst" because you live nextdoor to her, not because you are actually the worst in the neighborhood.

    I'm like you are, if someone is trying to goad/pressure me into doing something,...

    It used to happen to me all the time when I was younger. I have an uncommon, but not strange, name, that is spelled phonetically. Not hard. Lots of people would call me by other, even less common...

    :lol: They would love to hang out...wide ranging Nerf battles are a favorite game here too. I find Nerf bullets everywhere. I think boys who aren't allowed to act "wild" at home, lest they break...

    I'm not even sure. DH has a lot of random junk stashed around the basement. He doesn't like to throw anything out. I try to avoid "his" end of the basement.

    Ah, so that explains why they came over our house from the north, thanks! That was confusing me ;).
  11. Well, shoot, I missed it...F16 over the house

    I have a local guy pruning our apple trees, when I came home from work he told me he'd been freaked out by an F16 flying very low over the house/land! Shaking the ground close overhead.

    I second the suggestion for Horny Toad dresses. I have a few of them and wear them to work, which is "business casual". They are comfortable, flattering without being too sexy, pack well and can go...

    Why? She's already held the top ranking foreign policy job short of President. You may not agree with her on everything foreign policy (I don't either, she's a bit hawkish for me), but saying she's...

    I have no idea what "mentality" you are talking about. I am stating facts of how my insurance is handled. And, of course SS contributions are not taxed, taxes aren't taxed. That's why I deduct the...

    Yeah. My employer pays something like $18,000 a year for my family health insurance (we live in a VERY expensive insurance market, it's NOT a "cadillac plan"!). That is part of my compensation...

    You are being more than reasonable. If she just signed a year lease, she could be responsible for the remainder of the rent payments for the term, or at least until you re-rent it. You are doing...

    Yeah, an unbalanced front loader can make quite a racket...if it's bad enough it will walk across the floor and shake the whole building! We were having trouble with ours, it didn't want to stay in...

    Wow, you have VERY naughty (and smart) pets...they try to make popcorn when you aren't home! I'd guess the dog, I don't think most cats like popcorn ;).

    Agree. Chafee, when he was a Republican, was a New England style, traditional Republican...not what passes for a Republican now. He has been consistent, regardless of party affiliation. IMO, that...
