While many are familiar with the term bon mot, Obama seems to only spew mal mots as he tries to seem more intellectual than the rest of us.

I was thinking more or less of
A: Peace of mind,
B: Cost of fire.

Set it Forget it. Then you only need worry about turning the heater on.

Added Bonus, if you forget to turn it off, you come in to a toasty ofc!

xshub is just soooo happy ; )

PVI is a local Catholic HS. He announced this live at 10 pm with @BMitchliveCSN. Not quite sure what the Brian mitchell connection was, because he was a Redskin. Comcast is so weird, they will have NONhockey people do some little blurb between periods and it's totes ridic when Bmitch comments on the Caps. SU was a surprise pick.

Each time Barry spews a bon mot
I scream at the t.v., “No, no!”
I don’t care for his lies
Humor cannot disguise
The fact that this tyrant must go

so because it’s TAX DAY today, Lee Hwy will be slowed to a crawl, even more so than usual. the regional PO is there and they have a separate lane set up so you don’t have to drive into the lot, but just drop the tax forms on the highway, with a PO employee. Raining like an SOB, so bound to be miserable all the way around.

How old is too old for Easter baskets? Spouse and I disagree. I say if they are still living at home, they get one. He says stop at 12.

Now that we are all adults, there is one family basket. However, until after college they got their own. Just less candy more adult gifts like books, gift cards and just a bit of their favorite candy.

The UPS guy is ROUTINELY leaving two dog biscuits with whatever pkgs he leaves. Now, we get pkgs almost daily between me buying dresses for the wedding [am shopping exclusively online, as the stores allow you return stuff to the stores, and shipping is free. I buy anything that looks like a possibility, have returned around 5 so far, kept two prospects] and xsteen ordering stuff, so it is just wild that he leaves them every day. Last Friday, the FedEx guy knocked, and the dogs ran to the door and there was NO TREAT! they were soooo disappointed. Not to worry, the UPS guy came later and he didn’t disappoint.
