Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

Re: Penis homes

I have a redneck, Republican brother in south Georgia and he thinks like this.

Re: On cournbread

I agree about no sugar in cornbread, but we used EITHER white or yellow corn meal for cornbread. I particularly liked to make hushpuppies with white for some reason. Made them about a 1/2 flat and fried them. Loved the crispy uneven edges. Never saw [more]

Re: 50 years of wilderness protection

West Texas is experiencing the oil boom right now and housing costs are soaring with inventory at record lows. Not the best place to look for a bargain at the moment.

ChiliSpouse repeated this to me over and over until it finally sunk in. I still had a great work ethic, but in the back of my mind was, "if you don't like what I'm doing, fire me." After [more]

Re: reclining

Personally, with the shrinking size of the seats and leg room, I wish they'd just take the reclining feature off of the seats, or decrease it significantly.

What's the point of having a tray table if the seat in front entirely covers it? [more]

I don't like just cold smoothies; they have to be frozen-ish. My friend makes a big smoothie, drinks half one morning, and saves the other half for the next day. That does not work for me.
