Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon

In my part of the world, "hey you" is a sign of afffection/familiarity. We know each others names.

Also, in my part of the world, red print, is interpreted as anger and in CAPS it delivers a stronger impression.

My apologizies,

For many of us in the over the hill gang all caps means its easier to read. When I type something up for a report or to deliver a talk it is always in caps. I came along way before messaging. Now that we know there is an etiquite in messaging we try to comply so that we don't offend, but caps are easier to read. anything less that a 12 font means you really don't want me to read it so I just discard. 14 has become a favorite of mine specially in caps.

Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike.

I believe with the help of others that have also been there we could vaguely describe that condition.

"Don't let a little dispute ruin a great friendship"

FIVeoJoe,
We are all, from any part of the world. The internet has created a global community and NJ, as is NB, are only minute parts of it.

I agree with comments re: age and font size. However, caps are not the only alternative. The webmaster (or whatever title) can increase font size on this entire site. We only need to ask.........

The first time I heard that, it was "Slicker than owl snot on a door knob".

I can't help but wonder where that saying originated.

With the Firefox browser, I can increase the size of the fonts on any page. It works for me and, unfortunately, I find myself doing it more often than in the past.

We are all manufacturers. Making good, making trouble, or making excuses.

Hi, how about "dumber than a box of rocks."


Note: I did not go back 32 pages to see if this was a repeat.

Teddy Roosevelt

"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt
Sorbonne, Paris
April 23, 1910

Another one

Remember....it takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a high school diploma to fix one.
