Well, a little story about using real names. I'm 42, and I don't ever remember my Dad calling my Mom by her name. It was always "hey!", and she would get up and go! :eek:
They don't make good women like that anymore lol.
If that doesn't bring the non posting Women out, what will!

At dinner a few years a go at my folks, my Dad asked around the table who wanted more wine...He asked everybody and when he had his list, he turned to my Mom and "asked" her to get the wine for everyone...I smiled and turned to my wife, who replied before I could even speak with a look that said "dont even think you'll ever get away with that". That's a common occurance at my folks. Its never done in a disrespectfull way, but I think its just the way it was with the old italian family's. Personally (also looking around for wifey) I dont see anything wrong with it.. 8-[

Thats funny John and it reminded me of my childhood when the women in my family would serve the men and the children until we were done, then they ate the leftovers. True story but those days are gone. Something about equal rights or something like that. :grin:

That made me remember going to my Grandma's for holidays when I was young. The men ate in the dining room. the women fed the kids in the kitchen-then after the kids were done they would sit in the kitchen and eat. Funny how things change have changed over the years.

To answer the question:

It looks perfectly appropriate to me - rolling up some shredded paper in a piece of cardboard, to make a bbq fire starter. That is what it is, right?

The last name is dutch and EVERYBODY miss pronounces it. I'm on a first name basis with most of the world. My father says it took my mother 2 years to pronounce it right. I am the king of the diphthong.
Remeber the grammer rules, when two vowels go walking the first one does the talking.

Good Q!

There's a visual we could probably do without. Of course up there where it's dark most of the time, you could probably get away with it. :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:
