    Russell, I'd love to braid that hair of yours. I love long hair on men. So, if we all get together, will you let me brush and braid your hair?

    Manuel...please feel free to let me know if I said anything condescending to you here. We all have a way of wording things, and obviously Sharon thinks that the way I worded my comments to you was "patronizing" -- which is far from the truth. I will only respond to you Manuel, so please don't hesitate to ask me anything you want. I don't bite...not much anyway. :chuckle :kiss

    ACK! How bizarre to speak (type) to someone soooo far away, and they mention something so familar to you! We order from Jing Chuan at work on really busy weekends! Yuuuuuuummmm!

    I'm game when you are (and Russell and Renee too! And hey! We can't forget Dennie!)

    Unfortunately this thread will be alive long after we are both gone.

    Racism is in perpetual motion, fueling its own backward motion even when it seems to be going forward.

    Does it exist at Okland U.?................It does, even if it's just in one person.

    Racism doesn't need two people to exist, but it often does, but only because it can exist in only one person.

    Uhmmm............Did I make a point?
    Yep.....Peeps you definitely made an excellent point..

    1. Racism
    2. RN vs. LPN

    I am so jealous.
    That's a MUST on my list of things to do when visiting my parents.
    1. Jing Chuan
    2. Steak & Shake - gotta have a shake!!

    Not that my life revolves around food, but they just don't have good stuff like that here!

    Darn it, now my stomach is growling.

    Renee, the Darrin switch refers to that old show Bewitched, when poor Dick York got addicted to pain-killers and had to quit the show then they switched Darrins on us and tried to pretend like it was nothing. Well some of us never got over it!:chuckle

    Darn it! I loved Bewitched! Even I don't remember the switch, but then I don't usually remember much of anything when it comes to television shows. As long as the character can make me laugh, he/she is alright with me. If I could only wiggle my nose and make things happen...what a life I would live!
    Thanks for filling me in on that, Sharon.

    Hey Sharon...you post it, and they'll come... :chuckle I'll be there in a New York minute myself. Sounds like a winner to me!

    Another old issue that we could talk about on that thread is Gain vs. "that other leading detergent". :chuckle I've used Gain for years, so I want my GAIN commercial, too! :chuckle
