It annoys me, too. The Army has adopted an “all or nothing” type of dress code. The only choices are the Army’s version of T-shirt and blue jeans or let’s go to the prom. The business suit (Class A green uniform) and the casual business (Class B uniform) are long gone. The new dress blues are a little too dressy for travel and the camouflage uniform is too sloppy (for me). I am a veteran.

When you get full, you get full and it’s time to pump. If you don’t, it hurts. Why on earth do you think cows moo when it’s milking time??? A flight to Europe is a long time to go without pumping.

The sign on the left side of the road appears to be in Sanskrit, so this could have happened in Thailand.

I’m a Republican and a teacher and I believe in God. There *are* a few of us out there. Oh, and I homeschooled my kids. After I raised them, then I got a teaching license. I needed a good skill to depend on because my husband isn’t in great health.
A Republican who believes in God makes sense but a democrat who believes in God doesn't because everything the progressive-democrats do seek to strip God out of society. And a few years ago during the Democrat convention they voted to keep God out. Homeschooling is the way to go, kudos.

I would get back at him by not taking any pictures, cleaning up the mess myself, and never mentioning it. That would take the wind out of his sails.

Unless you’ve had surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome and some of your fingers don’t quite bend properly anymore. I want to learn sign language, but my fingers don’t work right.
You'd better learn to talk with your mouth, in that case.

I see so many comments that lump all Muslims with terrorists. This lady is trying to think of all people as individuals. I was at a major airport a few years ago and happened to spot a man go off in a quiet secluded corner of the waiting area behind a huge pillar, spread out his prayer rug, and pray. I admit it was hard to tell myself “Not all Muslims are terrorists. Not all Muslims are terrorists.” But I did not report him to anyone and no planes blew up that day. After all, the only thing he did was look for some privacy and pray.

I know of a Christian family who raised their children in Israel and all of their children, including the girls, took their turn serving for two years in the Israeli Defense Force. It’s nothing new.

Unlike the young elders and sisters whose mission costs are leveled, missionary couples have to pay the actual rate of what it costs to live in their mission. Hawaii is an expensive place to live so they usually call people to go there who can actually afford it. George and Olive Osmond (parents of the famous Osmonds) served a mission in Hawaii.

Are you willing to spend 1-2 years serving others AT YOUR OWN EXPENSE?
Are you willing to donate 10% and even more of EVERY SINGLE PAYCHECK to your church or other charity of your choice?
When you do, let me know and we’ll talk about who’s a Christian and who’s not.

1) I have some friends who just started serving their mission in Vanuatu.
2) Hawaii has it’s share of problems and people who need the Gospel. Just because YOU think it’s a tropical vacation paradise doesn’t mean that the people living there lead idyllic lives. There are plenty of opportunities for service in Hawaii and everywhere in the United States and everywhere in the world.

I got my driver’s license in the early 1970′s on a 1959 Volkswagen with a manual choke. How I miss a stick shift! You have better control over the car and you get better gas mileage.

Do you have any idea how much I am cringing to look at that picture and see people with their FINGERS all over that album???!!!???

I just saw this on the TV news and they said the woman had recently lost her four year old son. Her 14 yo son was in the car and she was afraid of losing him, too. Never mess with a Mama Bear and her cubs.

So, is God going to have to ask for your permission if He decides to give new revelation?
SuttonShimai .... Nice rebuttal.
Proverbs 30:5, 6: "Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar" (ESV).
Revelation 22:18,19: ""For I testify to every man who heareth the words of the prophecy of this book. If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in the book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book" (KJV)
There is another such admonition in Deuteronomy.

In the 60′s, students wouldn’t dream of disrespecting their teacher. Now I spend a great deal of time trying to get the students to stop talking with their neighbor or fiddling with their cell phone long enough for me to teach them anything. In a large class it’s easy for anyone not in the front row to hide behind their books, computer bags, etc. and text away or simply zone out. Class sizes of about 10 would really work great if you want your child to get an EDUCATION. Of course I’m talking about an ideal world. Some people really understand that. When the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah was built about 40 years ago, they deliberately made the classrooms small so they couldn’t hold more than about 10 desks. They knew that smaller classes would keep all the students involved. They only had 8 weeks to teach the missionaries enough language to be functional before sending them overseas and they didn’t have time to waste if someone was zoning out.
My sentiments exactly. I was wondering if I was gonna have to say it. Thanks!
Yeah, someone didn't do much research. As far as I know there isn't an entire attraction and Museum for About Schmidt. Field of Dreams still has a tourist site running. I don't even think About Schmidt is number 2. Number 2 has to be Bridges of Madison County.

Every time I teach a new class of Spanish students the word for black, they all go nuts not matter what their race is. They really *do* need an education!!
good stuff, and exactly my point, Sutton.
the word isn’t taboo or even giggle-worthy to tykes in Spain.
i think Anglo-Brit-Prog-Pop-PC-Culture is going to eventually force it to be that way, though, eventually.
-which is pretty weird.
anyone need an "eventually" ?
i seem to have a spare one ^
