    Tortie is such a grouch and LDL always seems to be happy. He always seems to have a positive attitude, while Tortie has a negative attitude. I feel sorry for LDL having to put up with Tortie. If it weren’t for LDL, Tortie probably wouldn’t have any friends.

    It’s bad enough that chemicals are destroying flowers and now a dog is doing it. Bees need flowers to help in pollination which helps grow crops.

    And they have long, sharp claws.

    No good night kiss + no hug + no saying I love you and meaning it = no sex.

    Good for Rose. Her mom is overweight and that’s probably why Rose doesn’t want to be like her when she’s that age. Jimbo should be proud to have a wife that’s slim and trim.

    We had our first baby, a daughter, in 1964. When she was old enough to be potty trained, we bought a wooden potty chair (that’s what they had then) with a pull out plastic pot. If she needed to go potty and her dad was in the bathroom, he would open the door and set the potty in the hall. We had only one bathroom at the time. When we took a long trip, we put the potty in the car and if she needed to go, we pulled over, sat her on the potty while it was in the car and emptied it the first chance we got. This worked for all of us. Did the same thing when the second daughter, born in 1966, was old enough to use the potty.

    These days the piggy bank is taken for granted — it’s a coin bank, shaped like a pig. The origin of piggy banks dates back nearly 600 years, in a time before real banks even existed.

    During The Middle Ages, metal was expensive and seldom used for household wares. Instead, dishes and pots were made of an economical orange-colored clay called pygg. Whenever folks could save an extra coin or two, they dropped it into one of their clay jars — a pygg pot. Vowels in early English had different sounds than they do today, so during the time of the Saxons the word pygg would have been pronounced “pug.” But as the pronunciation of “y” changed from a “u” to an “i,” pygg eventually came to be pronounced about like “pig.” Perhaps coincidentally, the Old English word for pigs (the farm animal) was “picga,” with the Middle English word evolving into “pigge,” possibly because of the fact that the animals rolled around in pygg mud and dirt.

    Over the next two hundred to three hundred years, as the English language evolved, the clay (pygg) and the animal (pigge) came to be pronounced the same, and Europeans slowly forgot that pygg once referred to the earthenware pots, jars and cups of yesteryear. So in the 19th century when English potters received requests for pygg banks, they started producing banks shaped like pigs. This clever — albeit accidental — visual pun appealed to customers and delighted children.

    Early models had no hole in the bottom, so the pig had to be broken to get money out. Some people say that’s where we get the expression “breaking the bank,” but serious academics disagree. The idiom “break the bank” means to ruin one financially, or to exhaust one’s resources. The term is believed to originate in gambling, where it means that a player has won more than the banker (the house) can pay.

    So that explains where the “pig” part came from, but how about the word “bank.” Way back when, the word “bank” originally meant the same thing as “bench.” You see, when money first started changing hands in Northern Italy, lenders did business in open markets, working over a table. These Medieval Venetian banks were set up in main squares by men who both changed and lent money. Their benches would be laden with currencies from the different trading countries. The Italian word for bench or counter is “banco” from which the English word “bank” is derived. (Some argue this is where the term “broke the bank” comes from. The Italian expression “banca rotta” means “broken bench,” with a broken bench possibly symbolizing that a money lender was out of business.)

    Why didn’t you just do that in the morning. It doesn’t take very long.

    Notice that when stupid things like this are done, it’s young men. They don’t have the common sense NOT to do something that dangerous (stupid) like women do. Women have more common sense.

    You’re so right. They shouldn’t even have the small Legos around.
