  1. Is anyone else just given a lot of vegetables from people's gardens this time of year? I don't have a garden but we get given a TON of others vegetables and can hardly use them all. I would love your help with recipes to use them all, especially zuccini and yellow summer squash. I also get beets too and have NO idea what to do with them. Please! All serious help and recipes are welcome.
  2. I just organized a Volleyball league in my hometown. I need creative new ideas for my own team's name. Does anyone have any cool ideas or funny ideas or names I might use? I want to be more original than the other teams.
  3. I was bored. And I find coffee necessary!!
  4. In the spirit Valentines wasn't created in... those of you who are in it... how did you know it was the real deal? How did you know you were in love. I guess I am asking married and long-term partners only. Those that are still actually loving the partners they are with.
  5. Harvard University has announced that from now on undergraduate students from low-income families will pay no tuition. In making the announcement, Harvard's president Lawrence H. Summers said,"When only 10 percent of the students in Elite higher education come from families in lower half of the income distribution, we are not doing enough. We are not doing enough in bringing elite higher education to the lower half of the income distribution." If you know of a family earning less than $60,000 a year with an honor student graduating from high school soon, Harvard University wants to pay the tuition. The prestigious university recently announced that from now on undergraduate students from low-income families can go to Harvard for free ... no tuition and no student loans! In addition, Harvard announce reduced fees for students from families with incomes between $60,000 and $80,000. To find out more about Harvard offering free tuition for families making less than $60,000 a year visit Harvard's financial aid website at: or call the school's financial aid office at (617) 495-1581. Does this still set some students up for failure? Is a student from a low-income neighborhood school or school not compliant with national standards, as many urban schools are, able to meet the challenges of Harvard?
  6. Neither here either. I must be an alien.
  7. I LOVE YOU GUYS!! Big hug!!! No really. I do!
  8. I think that people get confused and think that because Protestants don't think the wine (or grape juice) 'magically or miraculously' turns into blood and body in your body (because scientifically it just doesn't happen, they've never proved it has...) and that because they don't think it's a literal translation that they don't take it seriously. Literally and seriously aren't the same thing. The Protestants do take it very seriously and think that communion is spiritual and a symbol of renewing or pledging your committment to Christ's message. That is why most don't believe in refining and perverting the bread into a weird little rice styro foamy wafer and keeping it natural like the unleavened bread that the Jew's used to use when Jesus was living as a Rabbi. They keep it real. To encourage people to act as a desciple, and put themselves in that place. [And no I'm not a Protestant, I just think this is something they get right. The whole thing where the Priest chugs the rest of the wine mix is hysterical. It began not for any spiritual reason we are told, it goes back to medieval time when the priests simply didn't think the peasants were worthy of real wine and not clean enough to share with the priests, especially with scary things like the black plague around. We were consigned the wafer for hygeinic reasons.] Christianity is a heading, as Frenchy said. It encompasses the Greek Orthodox and all it's descendant churches and the Catholics and it's descendant churches too. Those descendant churches have since split into thousands of derivations of the two original churches... and then there are also the Messianic Jews too... simple truth and history folks. Keep it real. I've studied this stuff for years.
  9. Men and women... does it just taste icky to you? It may feel great for the receiver but ick. I think it tastes kinda gross. And flavors or food just makes it worse.
  10. Is that what they call it now?
  11. How can people like this be educated in order for this to never happen again? Religious belief is one thing but could anyone really think that an exorcism could be necessary to treat a medical condition? autistic boy dies during exorcism
  12. Goodbye sweet flown friends Fly free loved souls and wild hearts Blue skies forever We will remember To be always true to self Honor memory So many of you Will be thought of and learned from Cherished, loved, toasted Kiss sky fallen ones Your love and courage lives on We will not forget
  13. LIPSTICK IN SCHOOL According to a news report, a certain school in Garden City, MI was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the washroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day, the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. He called all the girls to the washroom and met them there with the maintenance man. He explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, he asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror. THE MORAL OF THIS STORY... There are teachers, and then there are Educators.
