    I will usually answer when someone rings my doorbell because I also have a locked metal security door. I'll open my front door and talk through the security door, which I only unlock and open if...

    When I saw that photo I thought "fire-trap." I'm all for people scrimping on housing to save or get ahead, but I also think fire codes are there for a reason.

    I was not the one who brought up the word Liberty into the conversation about ACA.

    Agree that there was some mild protest, but that was the minority. In contrast, the GOP's non-stop hysteria about the ACA and "freedom" is way disproportionate to plenty of federal goings-on that...

    I am neither. I have not owned a pet in my adult life - just not a pet person.
    To me it's like someone asking me, "do you want to have a 3 year old in the house for the next 10-12 years?" My...

    Definitely give it a go. It's a niche world out there which makes it easier for you and your audience to find each other.

    you are too funny!

    that's an amazing string of jobs. I think I've had about 4 main jobs in 33+ years. I never stopped to think that's probably way less than average, especially these days.
