Re: Need invite to TMF?

I don't know, which is worse a guy who runs out and buys a brand new 'fridge, ac and wants some "mad money" - or someone who says even with hindsight he would start a pointless war that's maimed and killed so many?

Re: Squeaker Doodle Bug - 6 Years Later

I remember how worried you were, and how uncertain you and your wife were as to what the right choice was.

I also remember how happy you were when her personality came back, and she could play as she did before the leg problem. [more]

Re: Serious new update

Well, it can be urgent, or just the internal hemorrhoids that were suggested. Let's hope it's the hemorrhoids (although they aren't pleasant to deal with, and I speak from experience). I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's just minor stuff. But yes, [more]
