So, you are entitled to your opinion and I will keep mine.
I might be wrong, and I am sure Tonka will correct me if I am, but I think he's saying (and I agree) that there is no way by looking at some one you know their health history and there is no way you need to be privy to their health history or what their current health issues are.

That's why we have such stringent laws about divulging that information. It is extremely personal and should be private.

When I see someone who doesn't "look" sick take a handicap spot, I think A-hole but then I tell myself perhaps they just had heart surgery 2 weeks ago and there s no way I could know that by looking at them. There's too many bad health thing that you can't tell by looking at someone. I'm a private person so I do try to respect other people's privacy as well.

You bad person, you! Actually, there's no good place to open gifts at those things. I know b/c I've done that type of party. Kids hyped up on cheap pizza and pop, their parents are grateful the little critters will fall asleep on the way home and they have a free evening.

Tonka, my computer is on the fritz and I can't log on.
I think it got infected by some spyware company themselves. I kept getting these dumbass pop-up ads and finally the other day it froze because of them.
I'm really mad about it, and probably will have to buy a new one.
I'm on my cell phone now, and I don't like using the internet with this thing. It's too small and I can't see the screen w/o my glasses.
I can't get to my music and I an really irritated about IT.
Just thought I'd let you know......

Tonka,
I don't even know the right terminology to use when talking computer lingo.
I'm just really mad about all the bugs and viruses and cookies and NSA spying and data mining.
Yet I need a secret password to log on to my own computer.
It says I can maybe change the password if I first install a floppy disc or a flash drive, neither of which I have at hand.
WTF?

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.

I don't see these situations as being even close to equal.

-witnessing a violent act in progress that you can try to stop

-witnessing an act that is not violent, may or may not be illegal, at worst MAY cause someone an inconvenience (assuming a handicapped person actually shows up and could have used that spot), and in order to find out, you have to be rude to a perfect stranger by "innocently" inquiring about their private health matters, while what you are really doing is assuming they are guilty of breaking the law unless they can prove to you they are not.

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."
