Re: I'm home - retired

I had just spoken to my friend in Kent, Ohio to inform him that I was retiring and he did not mention that West Point Market was closing. He is the person that introduced me to West Point Market and he knows Russ Vernon, the former [more]

Re: Why I adore Tom Cruise

Not to mention that he has maintained his exceptional looks for decades and seems to be aging very gracefully.

Re: Why I adore Tom Cruise

I've never been disappointed in a movie he was in.

Well, not so much in 'Risky Business'. Seeing him dance in his underwear did nothing for me. <g>


I liked that movie... it's still my all-time favorite of [more]

Re: Why I adore Tom Cruise

C'mon…he's one of our finest actors. The Last Samurai, Born on the Fourth of July, Jerry Maguire, Top Gun, four Mission Impossible movies wherein he does his own stunts, etc., etc., etc.

I don't care that he's short, or that he has spent

Re: Remember This Story?

I was thinking about that experiment recently and wondering how it was going. One of the things that came from this article is that when people are rewarded nearly equally regardless of their contribution, it demotivates both the top and bottom [more]

What was your first day of retirement like?

Mike's (ascenzm) thread about his first day of retirement got me thinking. We might have had a thread like this long ago, but if we did, I remember none of it, so here goes.

For those already retired, if you can remember that far back: What [more]

Re: I'm home - retired

Even the Queen of England sometimes drives herself. I was astonished at that!


I think most of that is done while she's staying at one of her country estates while "on holiday".

On such occasions, the Royals [more]

Re: I'm home - retired

I have an unplanned field trip to do because I found this morning that my favorite gourmet grocery store, Akron, Ohio's West Point Market is closing. Didn't expect that news so I have to make a trip to Akron.


Wow... This is [more]

I'm writing this a day later than usual in respect for the Barons situation.


Thank you for your thoughtfulness, LD, but you didn't have to do that.

I'm truly thrilled that things are progressing well for you. It gives [more]

Re: It's over.

Mere social overture? Lets see, if i slip a girl my phone number, she knows exactly what's going on. If a girl slips me her phone number, I know exactly what's going on.

I sincerely believe that must be true between any two people. I

Re: Food stamp fun

Worse yet, some are decrying that these kids aren't getting food over summer break because the only food they get is at school and, well, no school over the summer. It's a slippery slope to turning schools into de facto year-round prison camps for [more]

Re: It's over.

Andrew. Sweetheart. Nobody here wants you to be hurt. But by "keeping hope alive" that something will come of this, you are setting yourself up for more hurt.

Please, for your own sake, let this go, find a way to grieve, and

Re: It's over.

Matthew is from another country. There's no telling how being gay is perceived or treated in the culture he was raised in. A lot of Mexicans are really conservative.

Are you saying you will try again then?


I'm not saying one way or the other. Let's just say I believe in keeping my options open. Never say never.

On the surface, it appears Matthew is not interested in me. But there are [more]

Only thing I like at Burger King is the Whopper with Cheese. And the onion rings. Their current version of fries is OK, but not my favorite.

Re: It's over.

Twice when I was in the Bay Area I was hit on by gay men. Both times I said "No thanks, I'm not into it" and that was that. No arguing. No drama. No hurt feelings. Nothing. They went their way and I went mine.

Yes, that would be the way to go.
