I don't want to do a buzz kill on it because I had a great ime there, but take away the sex, swearing and body fluids and it a respectful and reasonably accurate presentation of the faith and its mission.
Heaven is Orlando. Hell includes giant Starbucks cups. One guy sings about Jesus calling him a dick. He was being a dick,too, so Jesus was right on.
Life was very funny last night. See it if you can. Really.
we were laughing hysterically about the idea of such a prim & proper little old lady seeing a play with all the "sex, swearing & body fluids"... her favorite movies was Babe (the singing pig made her laugh the only genuine laugh my cynical father ever remembers from her) and i think the last movie she ever saw in a theater was March of the Penguins...

Hi...I'm good now that it's cooling off here. Time to pull out the tomato plants, unfortunately. Going to miss them, probably got about 50+ lbs. this year,

Don't know much about the hard drives but if I were to buy one I'd start with a site called rakuten.com . Lots of selections. When I buy anything electronic I start there. I don't recall any problems with them. I think they're connected with Amazon but not sure.
There are web-connected storage sites that charge a small fee for backup. Sometimes Groupon Goods has deals also.

Tonka should have some opinions.

Thanks alot, we are already back....your site turned me onto the Western Data(WD) 3TB My Book...at $119, which is highly rated and a good price...then noticed our Best Buy had it at the same price...so we just ordered over the site, aqnd picked it up there....I got burned once going all the way to the Big Walmart, only to find somethings are cheaper on their site, than at the store...Still haven't figured that out...lol...thanks....BTW, love to try your tomatoes, bet they are even better up there....but down here, with the whiteflies, and at .99 cents a pound, I'll stick with just herbs, bouganvellias and orchids......

Partial post from that dude I went to HS with. Sounds like a woman complaining to her friends.

"I swear I'm tired of meeting losers...I'm seriously doubting the fact that somewhere out there that someone for me exists.. I just want one woman.. One good woman which shouldn't be A crazy thing to ask for feeling frustrated."

Yeah it kind of does. I actually had a reaction to reading it...it was like eww dude, quit being so "sensitive." I mean understand (I'm sure you do) that I like guys to be sensitive, I like sharing of thoughts and feelings, all of that, it's an important part of relationships. But this sounds too girly and is a major turn off. I bet this is a big reason he can't find "one good woman."

You can never have too much storage. And if you re someone that has lots of multimedia...movies take up lots of space. Higher qulity audio takes up lots of space. High quality photos take up lots of space.

And yes. You can get it for the mac. In fact, I don't think its a separate version. I think its simply compatible with both mac and pc.

If a dude has sex with a prostitute without her consent, is that rape or shoplifting?

Share your thought and feelings with your SO, not the entire Facebook world.

Blame falls at the foot of the head coach. Bobby caught all sorts of shit for letting Jeffrey run the offense.
