Considering the state of the economy, I think it's safe to say that any money that was held in a paperclip and was lost was probably put to good use. As my grandma used to say, "Finders keepers, losers weepers."

Yes, I'm tired of hearing about cancer too. I have 7 more radiation treatments (out of 33) to go and then have to be on medication for 5 years. Yeah, I'm tired of it, but some of us have to get used it. Thanks for your heartless posting.

someone said: I put money in a paper clip, so I didn't have to carry a purse or wallet at the parade in December. I lost it, of course. I put an ad in the paper with no answer, of course. I just want to know if the person who found it really needed it?

First of all how stupid can you be to put an add in the paper? Next time put a rubber band around your money that will work better and it will stay put or get better pockets w/ buttons or a snap.........man you need help!

Does not the Orange County School Board realize that teachers are more important than they are, the School Board? Keep the teachers! Fire the School Board!

I can see you went to a great Orange county school. I would suggest learning proper sentence structure before posting things about the importance of teachers.

"Does not the Orange County School Board realize that teachers are more important than they are, the School Board? Keep the teachers! Fire the School Board!"

Yea that's a good idea (sarcasm). Fire them and let teachers of Orange County run it. Then you'll have teachers complaining "why should they get a bonus? I've been teaching longer than she did?" etc etc etc. By then you'll have a new set of problems. They should replace the school board with new members.

"Is anybody else just plain sick of hearing about cancer? Is anybody else just sick of the word cancer?"

No actually, I'm sick of you repeating yourself.

"To the rude lady with the long, black, stringy hair who owns an "upscale" children's boutique: So, you think you can sell your overpriced, average looking clothing to all of us moms just because we can afford it? We can buy our tots "upscale" clothing wherever we choose, and it won't be at your store anymore! We have had it with your disrespectful, ungrateful, bipolar attitude! Get some meds, lady!"

Why are you buying upscale clothing for your little kids anyway?!? Are they hitting on girls during recess?!?

I agree with you...it is silly, but it's great for us cheapskates who pick it up at all these 'upscale' garage sales or thrift shops after barely being used!
OK, I DO stand corrected, thanks!(smile) I agree with you, buying the upscale stuff at a yard sale or thrift shop is a perfectly good idea, especially for kids' clothing. Some of the things I've seen in second-hand places still have the original sales tags attached! And if someone admires something I'm wearing, I have no shame in admitting where I got it; "I love your blouse, is it from Neiman-Marcus?" "Nope, Value Village, but thanks for the complement!"

It has also made its way into mainstream America. The 'dumming-down' of the English language has to be stopped, or we will end up like Canada: Useless on the world state.

No, it's just slang for she's the mom of the tot...the tot is an old fashioned word for a kid: "Look at all the little tots playing on the playground".

I know the word tot. But thankfully, I've never heard anyone use the term totmom. That just sounds stupid. So what happens when your kids gets to college and starts drinking? Do you become boozy-mom? How would you differntiate them from the mom's who are alchy's themselves?

As far as octomom, the word is funny. The octomom is pathetic.

I agree, I think the word is dumb, I was just explaining. I think the reason I dislike it is just because it is used in reference to Casey Anthony and I'm so sick of hearing about that family that it makes me want to puke.

Octomom is cool...not the actual octomom, but the word. It could be a really cool super-hero character...maybe if a woman had eight kids that she was actually able to take care of, she could consider that title a compliment...kind of like a superman.
