Frank, thank you for the recommendation. I would go and check it out at my local library but, oh yeah, they closed them due to the general ignorance of people in the community. :cry: Anyway, off the soapbox, I'm headed for the used book stores later today and will see if I can find a copy. It's good...

Woman's Poem/Man's Poem Woman's Poem: Before I lay me down to sleep, I pray for a man, who's not a creep, One who's handsome, smart and strong. One who loves to listen long, One who thinks before he speaks, One who'll call, not wait for weeks. I pray he's gainfully employed, When I spend his cash, w...

Things you wish you could say at work... 1. I can see your point, but I still think you're full of sh__. 2. I don't know what your problem is, but I'll bet it's hard to pronounce. 3. How about never? Is never good for you? 4. I see you've set aside this special time to humiliate yourself in public. ...

Great article! In a telephone interview Monday, Dr. Cock said that at least 35 of the excavated skeletons bore evidence of violent injuries: cheekbones crushed by heavy blows, broken hands and limbs, a smashed chest. Some had presumably fallen in hand-to-hand combat or been trampled by Spanish horse...
