addie, it's irish for "our day will be with us", a slogan for a free irish state. i added it when "downtown abbey" got under my skin one night.
Thank you bt. I completely understand and have to agree. And I have good news for all. Des Moines holds a bacon festival! Watch out Des Moines, a flux of new residents are on the way!

Au contraire, BT. You just need "USB Wine" and you'll be all set. Now you can get your wine digitally.

Do you see this blank look on my face? I can't believe what I just watched. Do you have any idea how many snowbound folks would have loved to have this for this weekend? And to think I don't even drink. I think I just may start with this.

I guess it can be read both ways
Yes, that is how I meant it, I knew Alix was from Canada

Sorry for the confusion Tom

Buckytom, if you look out your window on your commute to work you will see the little feathered babies I've sent to visit you and leave deposits for you to find. Mwa ha ha ha ha!

Y'all can talk about that loft apartment and the really great party below, but we all know what happens when its cold so long...baby boom! Now THAT'S a party.

Our stamps are 56˘ and it DEFINITELY takes more than a few days for a letter or package. I wish I could be more definitive but honestly, it is tough to gauge because there is no consistency. I've received a parcel from Katie H take WEEKS to get here and then the one I sent to GB took less than a week. Weird.

Doesn't bother me a bit. It seems like a more efficient approach.

Of course the mail carriers union (part of the problem?) is in a tizzy.

Letter carriers union denounces move to five-day mail delivery | Boston Herald
The USPS has been telling us for years that they have been operating at a loss. If it was a private business, they wouldn't be reducing their work hours, they would have closed their doors a long time ago. I am all for a five day service.

And to think we hit the ceiling because our stamps went up to $.42. And we are screaming again because they want to raise them another cent.
