“Oh why can’t the English teach their children how to speak?”

Columbus discovered the New World! You want to talk about spin? How about the spin that he started genocide, gave disease to Amerinds, et cetera et cetera, all the stuff that’s been blown out of proportion! Columbus sought a new way to India and Asia, and knew nothing about what became known as the Americas. Hence it was a discovery, and while so many unfortunate evils occurred over the centuries after his discovery, to pin all of the blame on him is illogical. Despite all of those evils, humanity has advanced with the Discovery made by Columbus, the claims about Leif the Lucky notwithstanding. Happy Columbus Day!
I had two friends in college, married soon after graduation. I don’t know at what age she had each child, but I do know they raised a baseball team: 8 boys and 1 girl (the girl was the youngest). They had a new baby every two years, as I recall.
Corn right off of the stalk isn’t bad at all. I used to grow corn in the back yard when I was a kid. Once in a while I’d pluck an ear off the stalk, peel off the husk, and munch away. Good stuff!
Looks like everybody’s smoking their cigarettes filter-first.
Some variation of “crust-first?”
Yeah….. like say you’ll build a wall and some other country is going to pay for it. Yippee!
I loved walking in the woods, and open fields (gone now). We had a pool for swimming… I didn’t miss anybody from school at all. There were other kids in my neighborhood. But I had lots of fun, sleeping out in a tent, reading Mad magazine (it came out once a month back then, and cost 30 cents). I enjoyed doing nothing! Loved summertime when I didn’t have to do anything!
Pepper Ann did it all the time.
I’ve seen Mane & Tail horse shampoo on store shelves. What brand name would you give for a unicorn shampoo?
