    “I say we all decide to call them Brontosaurus and dump the apatosaurus name that nobody likes anyway”

    VB.Net is only nominally the same language as BASIC. I have coded in both, but prefer VB.Net. Which are you using?

    I think I will start celebrating Curmudgeons Day, too! I have been calling V-Day “Insincere Sentiments Day”, but “Curmudgeons Day” has a better ring to it. Thankfully. my hubby is willing to skip it. I wish I could say the same for my kids’ elementary school.

    Our public library has a couple of 3-D printers that anyone can use for just the materials cost.

    “Children need two parents and this is one the reasons why.” – I totally agree. Also, chansonreeve is correct about the source of that philosophy. You paraphrased that Baha’i quote remarkably well for not having seen it in so long.

    I think Wally has this right. If Joan is still concerned, she could always start texting with him. Teenagers who normally communicate in one syllable or less seem to be far more talkative via text message.

    It’s up to the studio, of course, but casting a handsome and popular black actor in the role might actually increase the turnout – at least for the first movie with the new Bond. It is an established franchise, so the regulars will come no matter what. It’s quite possible that the extra publicity and the novelty factor would attract some new viewers.

    The other shopper thinks that the oranges must have bruised in the fruitalanche. Bruised fruit goes bad quickly and is less tasty. Ergo, you broke it, you bought it.

    “Cursive is a cancer, it is unreadable and hard to learn.”
    I used to agree completely with that statement. Then my daughter learned cursive last year. Now her teachers won’t let her turn in any assignments in print, because her printing is illegible and her cursive is pretty decent. Go figure. The other benefit is that she can read cursive writing and fonts now. I still think they would have been better off teaching just enough cursive so the kids knew how to read it, and spend the time on improving their print handwriting skills.

    “Is making the Judge laugh a good thing or bad thing?” – I’ve always imagined that the Almighty has an excellent sense of humor. Why else would He create platypuses?
