I would think you would be worried more about the Gov. of New Mexico's problems than what we do here in S.C.

The name is GOATFARMER. Why should a name worry you. At least I registered my name, I don't hide behind an gray screen.

I keep waiting for them to run out of days to assign to specific holidays, then we will have to start assigning by segments. Confederate morning, Yankee afternoon, MLK morning, Save the whale afternoon...... good grief. I can't keep up with what day is special for what thing now. I am waiting for there to be a general caucasian day... everyone else has a day, or a month. Why don't the caucasians?
