    I'd be interested. But between the high percentages of false positives and/or false negatives on some brands/varieties of the test, I would not have confidence in the results. I don't know if whoever...

    I think it would be easier for DW and me. Not easy, but easier. We remarried at 50 after years of living on our own. We realize that, marrying as late as we did, it's almost certain one of us will be...

    We're staying here. We don't know anyone else who's planning to move away.

    As a supporter of the police I can understand your not liking changes coming to policing. I don't agree with you - but given your stance I can grasp that you feel this way.
