Re: Is college a bust?

Re: What happened here?

Apologize? Competitive banter? no no no..... My reaction to your first post was simply a knee jerk reaction to the practice of people constantly googling anyone they meet - and trying to be a little...

Re: Fukushima I nuclear accidents

While I do not want to make light of the problems surrounding the nuclear accident in Japan, I do want to point out that the sky is not falling either. The primary radioactive particles that are...

Re: Shameless marketing

Susie, I have read your stories before. I have always enjoyed them. I must say though, I came away with a lesson learned on this one - that meat of any kind should come as god intended - in...

Re: Well Hello There!

Well hello back. Where in upstate NY are you? I'm transplanted to upstate myself. Are you from there originally? One thing I can't get used to is being land-locked. Freaks me out a bit still. But...

Re: Just Hikers?
