  1. OTOH, the cases in VA continue to drop. Only 90 yesterday in the entire state.
  2. I just saw on the news last night that about 50% of Virginians have been fully vaccinated. The vaccines here are readily available and free. What are people waiting for?
  3. Category: Food & Drink Phrases A 1951 TIME article said, “Since the war,” this 2-word term for a period of time “has been written into union contracts”
  4. Road Runner

    Hectic

    "it" is a pronoun used to refer to a thing previously mentioned or easily identified.
  5. They have been schooling at home all this school year. School ends this week, but for them, it is just another day at home. Bummer.
  6. He had a brother named Santa, but for simplicity, he dropped the "von" and the "witz".
  7. It would even be nice to discuss our wonderful grandchildren with my ex, but due to our consistently at-odds personalities and values, that is out of the question. It is amazing that two people who were so different and had so little in common could have been in any way responsible for the creation of such beautiful and intelligent grandchildren. I suspect most of their DNA is derived from their mother's side of the family.
  8. Plus the traps do not climb all over your furniture, they do not need to be fed, and they never, ever require that you clean their litter box.
  9. Just think of how different the world might be if Herr Hitler's sperm had been just a little less enthusiastic on the night of Adolf's conception. Or if Frau Hitler had a really bad headache that night.
  10. But you never know. Just a second or two and my son would have avoided his terrible accident. But on the other hand, it could have been much worse. He quite easily could have been killed. Any of the slightest differences to his schedule or movements that day could have resulted in momentously different outcomes, not only for him but for his family and his as yet unborn children.
  11. Just hit me out of the blue after spending a few hours with my grandchildren yesterday.
  12. ... if just one seemingly minor occurrence or decision that you experienced early on had not occurred, or had occurred differently, or you had chosen a slightly different path? Just one minor example: My son had a bad cycling accident several years ago where a motorist ran a light and hit him broadside at an intersection. I always think about how just any little thing could have prevented that accident from happening. Any slight delay before his ride or any slight slowdown or speed up during his ride; just a second or two either way would have kept that accident from ever happening.
  13. Seriously. I'm speechless. I am without speech. And to think of all the times that I have lamented over and regretted ever marrying their grandmother. But in a strange quirk of fate, these glorious children would not exist had I not done something that I always thought was a huge mistake. God (or whatever you believe in) works in mysterious ways.
  14. This is known in literary terms as an oxymoron.
  15. Cats, huh, yeah What are they good for? Absolutely nothing! Uh-huh Cats, huh, yeah What are they good for? Absolutely nothing! Say it again, y'all
  16. Much like the term, "useless cats", another redundant phrase.
  17. They will still be known if people watch classic "golden age" movies. I'm pretty sure they will still be available for future generations, but who knows if 22nd century people will be inclined to watch them.
  18. @AirwickWithCheese would know this, I'm sure.
  19. Golden Age Actresses In 2013 the Victoria & Albert Museum acquired her archives, including letters from Laurence Olivier & Tennessee Williams
  20. Some of them like men. That is pretty disgusting!
