I really hope we can find a real, viable conservative presidential candidate to vivify the conservative side of the republican party. No more friggin Bush’s or other lameass liberal patsies.

If this doesn't vivify you to get out and vote, I don't know what will.

Want the economy to vivify

I clicked on your link and my computer was immediately attacked by something nasty. The so-called “fix” that popped up was probably a further attack, since my anti-virus wouldn’t allow it to run.

Ms. Vance's portrayal as "straight-man" & reluctant accomplice to Lucy's
constant schemes helped vivify the storylines in the classic 50's sitcom.

the warm weather is serving to vivify the flowering plants, the azaleas are finally budding. the resulting pollen is giving me a headache and gooey eyes. i don’t normally suffer from allergies, but i bought some allergy meds and took them today.
my dogwalker is soooo nice. she is going to come by tomorrow and help me clip Chan’s nails. Since i am not having her groomed [i fear the strain of that trauma on her poor heart], we are bathing her, but i don’t really feel competent to clip her nails.

Ronald Reagan always said not to be triste, but to vivify.

Or something like that.

as far as i can tell, no one has a gun to their head mandating that they be a CHEERLEADER. What is cheerleading but dressing up [or rather HALFdressing] for lecherous drunk dudes at sporting events?

To me those NFL cheerleaders are like Pageant girls. They know it is going to cost them a bit in the end but it is for publicity to hopefully be “discovered”

I’ve got no strings to hold me down
To make me fret, or make me frown
I had strings but now I’m free
There are no strings on me
I’ve got no strings so I have fun
I’m not tied to anyone
How I love my liberty,
There are no strings on me!

Maybe we can sing this for America again someday. A+++

The locals interviewed a number of ex-Jiils in the area ... Most of them said that all the women pretty much knew what they were getting into when they signed up. From what I’ve seen, it just looks like a money grab.

Poor baby. I just want to pick her up and hug her.

Trees are budding here..... stood in the bathroom window staring out while brushing my teeth this morning. It’s the first I have noticed around here. This tree usually buds first.

NEVER take a flyer from them, they WILL come back in hopes you read it and will be open to them the next time.

I TOOK THE FLYER! LMAO! that’s why she said she’d be back. I won’t open the door the next time.
I am torn though, bc i have experiences with the Witnesses. When i was in college, one summer i worked with several and we talked religion. They do not believe in the Trinity, i do know that, bc i clearly recall the one guy saying to me about “your freakish Three-headed God” One of my friends from Campus Crusade for Christ gave me a booklet with a point by point refutation of their beliefs with bible verses etc. I don’t recall any of it and that booklet is long gone, and i probably will not open the door but i am never afraid of speaking of what i believe.

when i pulled up outside of St James this AM for 8:30 mass one of the nuns was walking a DOG outside of the convent! she looked like your Buffy, but with diff coloring. I said, oh what a sweetie, and she said oh yes, she is. I said too bad she can’t go into Mass, and she said, yeah, prob shouldn’t try that. i said they need to do a St Francis Mass where you can bring your dogs to Mass, and she said that their pup goes to the Mass in the Chapel with them in the convent! i thought that was very cute.

Won't matter that the Capitol Dome is covered in scaffolding, as far as xsteen's wedding photos go, bc that won't be in any of the shots. But the Wash Monument scaffolding came down, which is good, bc that WILL be in the backdrop of wedding pix. Our niece's save the dates were a pic of them down at the Jefferson Memorial and you can see the scaffolding on the Wash Monument.

When I was a kid I heard on TV
That scientists were talking
About the coming new ice age-
They all seemed to be squawking

We were all doomed, they said
Unless they got more money-
So they got paid-now the threat
They vivify is warm and sunny

Once again, we’re all doomed-
Oh, no-just stop drilling now-
And what stupid thing will be
The next disaster cash cow?

There was a JW-a guy-who came by about 7 years ago when MrT5 had just gotten home from work and was opening the gate on the driveway. MrT5 was very polite, accepted his literature, and told the guy thank you, but we are a Catholic family.

All these years, that guy was still coming by every couple of weeks-I’d find the literature taped to the gate when I got home from work. Now that I’m not there any more, I wonder if he left stuff on the gate of a place where no one lives...

i didn’t even bother going down the We are Catholic road, bc they expect people to have their own religion. She asked if i believed that God answers prayer, i said i KNOW he does. she read me a verse from John [doubt their Bible is the same as our’s]. they did not recoil when chan and jules met them on the stoop, so that’s a point in their favor.

Well, the JWs can’t leave stuff on the gate-I took down both the ranch gate and the yard gate, threw them into my compadre’s truck and they are stored here, waiting for their next place...
