  3. I enjoyed your list very much.
    I will comment.

    12-1 I will not be available New Years Eve. That is what my wife told me.
    15-12 I love it when I have an Aha moment.
    14 ALL- I agree with those.
    14-11 One word 'DEPENDS"
    14-7 Especially bad cellphone manners.
    12-4 So write a short story.... start with "it was a dark and stormy night" and end it with..."and they lived happily ever after." draw a long line and put words in between those two paragraphs. That wasn't so hard, was it?
    11-8 laptop..no name....unbelieveable!!!
    8-8 A hunk of what?....oh...never mind.
    6-2 hate laundry...mail it to me with SASE. I don't mind laundry...or housecleaning. I usually think
    up great ideas while I am doing housework. Strange but true.
