    A new priest at his first mass was so nervous he could hardly speak. After mass he asked the monsignor how he had done. The monsignor replied, 'When I am worried about getting nervous on the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass. If I start to get nervous, I take a sip.'...

    We just adopted a 6-7 mo old cat last night from the shelter. She was spayed on Friday morning. She seems okay but she hasn't had any water to drink (that we have seen) or used the litterbox. she is purring when we pet her, her incision looks great, she's not very active (I wouldn't be either...

    I was listening to the radio this morn & heard a convo about how women are getting those lines around their mouths like smokers get and were wondering why. When you think of it you really are making that same puckery face smokers use to inhale on their cigs. I think I'll pour my water into a...

    Soak them for an hour or longer in slightly warm (not boiled) white vinegar. Then use a nylon-net or plastic scrubbie to remove film. Still there? The damage must be etching (tiny scratches that occur in the dishwasher) and is permanent, sorry to say. To avoid this altogether, hand-wash your...

    I've always liked dry milk. When it's milked right and cold it's hard to tell the difference between a glass of dry milk and real milk. I've always just grabbed the gallon milks out of convenience. I have to spend time milk dry milk but I've got a system now, so it's not to bad. I've had to...
  14. Relationships
    Well my DH is an alcoholic he has been well forever I suppose. Last weekend he went out with friends and lets say came home so plastered that he was talking craziness. Now I must confess he truly scares me when he gets this way. About a year or so back he actually kicked in my wrought iron...

    I have a question, does any other high schools allow adults to tailgate with alcohol at high school football games? I am just curious if I am the only one that thinks this is morally wrong. It is promoting alcohol use amongst our teens and it is on school property. I just think that is totally...

    We had an open bottle of (more expensive than usual) wine from the holidays that we hadn't finished. Used the better glasses(stemware)the first go around and decided to use the jelly glasses (our usual) tonight. I felt more at home and enjoyed the wine more in the jelly jar glasses. Good stuff &...

    Water was one of the hardest things for me drink when I was drinking Pepsi. I love water, however I loved Pepsi more. It was easy to pick a bottle of Pepsi from the fridge and sit and drink 5-6 per day without a thought. When I quit drinking Pepsi I decided I would purchase bottled...
