Something different

I have very soft skin

5. What food have you never tasted and are most interested in trying? well... I guess I should explore Thai food since my friends like it and I'm reluctant

I love Thai food, but I don't like it hot. Start with pad thai--very mild noodle and shrimp dish. Then unless you are a "hot" fan, choose the less spicy ones and work your way up!

I'm old fashioned that way, too. Happily, Please and Thank you rubbed off on the kids.

#6. I'm not shocked. It's something that got very little actual "press" for a long time afterward. The last of the non volunteer armed forces were treated with such disrespect as to be monstrous. They didn't volunteer to go.

Cereal is a great little lazy meal. :o)

Amen! to missing the freedom from responsibilities of childhood.

You know, I totally sat here and named all the states checking syllables. I guess it's like when someone says it's impossible to lick your elbow...you have to try. LOL

Shh, I'm with you--I don't think I've had Thai food.

We call our state by a one-syllable name, but I expect that's not what you meant.....lol

Aren't the Harry Potter books great? And I am taking FOREVER to learn to knit. I am about ready to give up.
