Ummm, your post-WWII parents didn't have reliable birth control Which explains why it was wrong for women to have sex before marriage, but not men. Women ran the risk of getting pregnant and needing help to raise the child while men could deny any individual child was theirs.

Not sure what you mean by that. Back then, there was no DNA testing, either.

I read Addie's comment of "gotta luv DNA" as referring to the present, i.e. that men can no longer get away with that.

DH is at his conference and I'm off to Penzey's in Falls Church! I'm low on several spices and looking forward to finding something new!

SO is turning 65 in December so Ive been helping her sign up for Social Security, Medicare and supplemental insurances for Medicare parts A, B and D. The red tape is mind numbing.

Also reviewing insurance companies and their offerings to determine if I should change companies.
