Re: Wedding RSVP question

Good manners can be summed up with "common sense and the golden rule." Use those things, and it will all fall into place.



If people had either or both of the above there would have been no need for this thread.

Re: The Greatest Retirement Mistake

I am tempted to just hang it up - but the pencil needs to be
sharpened a little to verify whether that is realistic.

Re: Wedding RSVP question

I gave a cash gift to the bride and groom. Heard later through the grapevine that the cash gift was too small; it was only enough to cover the cost of the dinner I missed. Sheesh.

Re: Wedding RSVP question

Wife: "Actually, it isn't cheap at all. We're talking at least $50 per person, so saying someone is coming when they may not (and probably are not) is a dick move (she probably didn't use that term, but I'm [more]

Re: Wedding RSVP question

She was complaining about their not putting their names on them but if they weren't on there and there wasn't a line specifically saying "name" then it's pretty much her fault I say. People aren't mind readers!

Re: Hill email problems..Getting worse!

Yes, Hillary is an "Untrustworthy Liar". People have stated right on the PA board and many other places, that they have no problem with that.

Re: Matthew redux

I probably missed a lot, because I always hit "Next Thread" for these posts, but stumbled in due to the high number of recs on some posts.


I, for one, was SO hoping that this subject was OVER!

I started reading those kinds of books 35 years ago and they were very helpful to me. Life is a journey and Wayne Dyer was part of mine.

Re: Whose in the top 10 CNN debate

Re: Whose in the top 10 CNN debate

But you seem to keep going back to a single instance of a single poll and think that is the actual current standing. It's not. It's some sort of amalgamation of a bunch of polls.


So, what does Carly have to do to make it to the top 10? [more]

Re: Whose in the top 10 CNN debate

There isn't such a list, as you have pointed out. As best I can tell, she is relying on lists that are compiled based on the standings at this time, not the standings as they will be on September 10/16, which of course is impossible to compile today. [more]

Re: Whose in the top 10 CNN debate

Top 10 is not yet fixed. However, it is likely that were Jeb to sink to zero in all polls here on out, he'd still be in the debate.

September 10 isn't here yet, which is why the ten candidate-debaters have not yet been announced.


If that were true, Carly would be in the top 10 and there would be no need for her to go after CNN regarding the fact that she might be [more]

Re: Whose in the top 10 CNN debate

Could using old polls possibly be intentional on CNN's part? Hmmmm? </sarc>


Ya think?
I do believe that's the case. The RNC could do something about this IF THEY WANTED TO!

Re: Trumpian Subliminal Suggestions

Whether you like him or not, Trump is the Grandmaster, in a competition filled with complete neophytes. He is showing everyone not just how it is done, but how pathetic everyone who has come before was.
