I'm not sure why you would feel the need to tell him anything, unless he is either asking you out, or is actively 'persuing' you. You don't have to explain yourself to anyone, at any time.

However, if you don't want to encourage advances from anyone, male or female ... The routine is the same.  … Read more

I'd kiss my wallet but I don't think it would make me richer . . .

Though  I've never heard of trying to kiss one's feet I can see that the stretch to attempt to do so can limber you up which is good for sports.

Congratulations Yin!! So happy for you and Yang and your lovely daughter.

Be the Mother in Law that you've always wanted. Be encouraging and know your boundaries. Let her go to her friends or other support when things go wrong. In this it's not your place to be her confidant. Because no matter what we say … Read more

Happy New Year Yin!

Congrats to your daughter and you.

My first word of advice don't meddle in their affairs. They will make mistakes, but that's how they learn. Don't take sides. Remember you aren't losing a daughter you are gaining another son.

I'm still in, even though the spam is frustrating as it seems to be taking over the site. I don't like how prolific the spammers are. According to the chat today, it looks like Tim now sees the problem and hopefully this will be fixed.

Since Rooster and Angela left, we can now see how much … Read more

Well I guess it depends on the type of person your mother is. Mine would rather give me something I could use and would understand if i exchanged something. My mother-in-law is just the opposite. I don't mean to sound like I am wanting her to die, but when she does there will be a … Read more

I once gave my son (13 at the time) a Dremel tool for Christmas.

He was less than enthused.

A little later, I followed up with him.  It turns out that he was looking at a tool next to the tool that I had bought and it was that tool that he really wanted to have.

Like you, … Read more

My grandmother had this in her home for years. She and grandpa had six kids, four girls and two boys. After she died, her daughters got possession of this and passed it around the families. I'm not sure who has it now.

I like it here, too, great website for questions & answers. But sometimes I'll pose a question and it won't appear here, and so I think I'm doing something wrong. Right before the send-off of a question, we are asked which category it falls under: I usually have to tick "Other". Could this be why?

Undecided as of yet because the weather is windy and wet. Drove around and looked at the lights last night. Not sure if I will go midnight mass tomorrow night. If I do, I'm also undecided on which church, the one with the candles and bad (but funny), organ player, or the one with the … Read more
