    UL, I am with you on the arugula....just not to my taste. Of course, I don't care for kale either. I think I just am not a "bitter" fan.

    SmartWool socks are one of my few indulgences, and I don't apologize. They keep my feet warm, and that is priceless to me. But I don't wear knee-highs, so can't help you there.

    Wow, Rob, sounds like a bully to me. I agree with ANM and Zoe. You do what you can, and take care of yourself when you need to so you can do the former later on.

    Your story reminds me of my mom's long regretted tossing of my John Lennon doll from the 60s. She used to "clean" our rooms while we were at school.

    I think they've gone the way of the rotary phone. I haven't received one in many years. And I've been to numerous weddings. Maybe it's just a PacNW thing....pretty loose up here.
