    Pretty sure its there but never got through it. I would rather suggest you read 'Atlas Shrugged' and 'The Fountainhead'. Ian, the original pot stirrer, also needs to study those, as his suggestion of societal rule by 'committee' is death to the human soul, spirit and productivity.

    Single moms should be issued guns by the government to protect themselves and kids.

    And cookie, one need not gain much weight on Prednisone if they can control the urge to eat from that terrible drug. And most doctors do not know how to use it anyway, causing much uneeded suffering.

    After shopping in every sort of store in most of east and west europe, and not seeing any stump legged monsters weighing as much as a Trabant, [except for a few babushka's that at 80 were still planting potatoes and plucking geese] one gains a bit of x-ray vision at the American Wallymart. We have a problem here.

    I am not a pot stirrer.

    I'm just trying to make a few Americans think about things they find uncomfortable, and are most probably true.

    In regards to your reply about the steriods, I suggest that you contact every doctor and explain to them the proper use of Prednisone; and, the steriods used in the mega doses to keep me alive, didn't have anything to do with eating; the use of Prednisone causes the weight gain not the eating, because it keeps your body from burning calories and working more efficiently, ie breathing, by producing more red blood cells in your body. WHICH is why body builders love the stuff. BUT, people are under the misconception, as yourself, in that it increases the appetite thus, increasing the body weight. I was on it for 1.5 years, and was weaned off it for 1.5 years. My body weight now is a svelte 118 lbs, and your head would spin if you saw me my friend.

    Ask your doctor he will explain it all to you. You will marvel at it all the knowledge you will gain, Ballsvalve.

    Cass is faxing invoices over to the company, he is doing great! Today is his Bday, we wanted to get together but I had to work, so it will have to wait. Plus, he has a cold. I don't want the cold, :) I have had some scary moments, one lately, but, it turned out to be a false alarm, thank God. Did I say, thank God... let me say it again, lol...Life is good. Even though they don't know what it was, they know what it wasn't, lymphoma. Went shopping today after work, bought a new purse, :)

    How's the kiddies? Can't believe you are still babysitting!

    Don't know if you heard, but, I got a grandson now. WOW... a grandmother! That is scary MM, I have been babysitting, :) I stink at it too. Am open to pointers.

  9. I thougt you lived in the northwest?? and does not cass lives in the midwest.....???

    did someone move recently ???...

    Congrads on the grandson.....

    having grandkids has a tendency to mellow people out a whole lot..
    I think it trips some sort of DNA gene reaction when you link up with your childrens kids
    soul memories or something......

    gives a whole new meaning or dimention to your life...
    or something like that....

    take care

    No, we live pretty close together, not far. Grandkids, I waited on one, and " surprise mom!" he said, "you're going to be a grandmother." I was elated. He is now almost 6 months old, a real beauty he is. He is a white blonde, blue eyes like my son. I am beginning to see alittle bit of red it in though. I never want to put him down when I hold him. I like just looking at him, and think, arrogantly, think, this wouldn't had happened if it weren't for me, lol. Ah, I like kids.

    Ian the Brit, the shame comes from that honor thing that we talked about before. Honor tends to raise its pesty little head anytime someone is happy to take more out of the collection plate than they put in.

    Body builders use androgenic-anabolic steroids which are an entirely different class of drugs.

    Might be, but I am still right about what I said about the eating, breathing, red blood cells, etc. I live with a Hemolytic anemia with a cold antibody. My counts was so low one winter that with gloves on while shoveling snow, I got frostbite on my finger, and then, it turned into a staph infection, nearly lost my finger. The really important finger, too, LOL. What I deal with, you wouldn't want my friend.

    You can buy some nice places in Vegas and California for the homes material cost now. No snow tires required. And no frostbite unless you get locked in your freezer.

    The big advantage is that you still get snow, over green grass, and it melts in a few days, and you are outside in a t shirt again.

    Then you can drive to the ocean in a few hours or to the desert in less. Try that in Ohio or Wisconsin!

    And at the higher elevations, I think the snowpack is around 36 feet right now.

    But its hard to leave family for frozen fingers.

    i was refering to is the part of the plot where its not getting a person to commit big sins to get them to hell but little things of everyday life that paves the path to hell. but his use of a giant bureaucracy as a metaphor for hell is right on target.
