I'm not very happy right now. There is now another area from which he's banned.
Oh NO!! I hope it didn't bleach out the color from your couch and carpet! Bad DH!

Dawg, my Mom used to call that "book smart, life stupid". The higher the IQ, the lower the common sense. I have a child who is living (so far) proof of that.

**************************

I have to vent about our electric bill. Although we heat with fuel oil (thank goodness that has gone down in price this winter) we heat our hot water with electric, as well as cooking, drying clothes, etc. In past winters, our bill was probably around $110 for the high bill, what with Christmas cooking and lights and such. This last bill was Oh My God! We were gone for 13 of the 35 days in this billing cycle. While we were gone (OH for Christmas with the kids, family funeral in PA early this month) we turned the hot water tank off. Obviously we weren't watching TV or cooking/baking. This bill? $160!!! Damn, I despise National Grid right now...

Dawg, Himself said a sharp crack with a rolled-up newspaper usually does the trick.

I didn't catch him in the act until it was already squirted. I did have a newspaper handy had I known.

Oooo, so sorry. LG just this month came out with the first non glass OLED TV. It 's a flexible plastic material. Good for them.

Then don't use the tv stand/base. Instead, mount the screen on the wall, up a little high. He may still throw things at it (my grandkids did) but at least he won't be able to knock it down.

My daughter-in-law is like that, AND she is a natural blonde. She has a master's degree. When my grandson was born she told me that "he weighed 7 lbs 8 oz, but I don't know how many oz make a lb." What? How can you go all through 12 years of school, 4 years of college and 2 years for the masters program and not know how many oz are in a lb?

Dawglover, I think some men do things wrong so they won't ever have to do them again. I know I am going to get beat up over that comment, but guys, please note I said "some." I am not including any of the male members of DC, whom I KNOW would NEVER think of doing that!!
