It worked; you disguised the thread well. I just now found it.

And the title is now all caps despite the discussion. Maybe it didn't used to be. Maybe it did.

I feel like I'm a day late.

What courses are you taking this semester Operator?

I believe it is called "How to confuse people with Roman Numerals".

Operator265
01-28-2011, 06:53 PM
Oh heck yes!! Then, with a degree in Accounting, I'll be able to confuse people even more with Arabic Numerals. :devil:

This semester is "Financial Math" and "Stocks and Options". I can only handle two classes at a time with work and everything else going on right now.

On the third hand, some of us don't give a hoot!

I was cleaning out tapes a week ago and found one of Harry's unlabelled tapes. Of course I had to check it out in case it was interesting. It was a tape of the 1982 Super Bowl! Sheesh!

BillBlueEyes
02-06-2011, 08:14 AM
hmmmm...That "in case it was interesting" reminds me that among the zillions of our unsorted photos is one "interesting" one in an isolated and gorgeous location which, however PG it is by today's standards, one could reasonably conclude from the attire that it wasn't PG a few moments before.

Hoping we find it someday before the kids do, or that if they find it after we're gone, they fail to figure out what it means. Or they conclude, using the math unique to children about their parents, that two kids plus this picture means it happened three times.

Is this off topic?

When Brigham Young and his party first got to Utah, Brigham sent out some scouts ahead of the party to report what they found.

After a week the scouts returned and reported that there was a really nice valley a ways ahead with a big ol lake but there was nothing to do there but fish and fornicate.

Brigham thought for a couple of seconds then turned to the scouts and said, "Well hurry on ahead then and salt the lake!!!!"

Briefly ~

16 year old niece, being raised by my brother (she is the daughter of our brother that passed away) who lives across the street, is feeling like it is her right to do WHAT-EVVV-ER she wants...go figure ;)

Is causing trouble at my brother's house and when she goes to visit her mom on week-ends...mostly because she wants to go to BF's house...his mom is also trying to keep them apart under unsupervised conditions as they have been known to put themselves in compromising situations :mad:

Her mom allowed her to go see BF last night...he threatened to kill himself because they had a fight...his mom had cops come get him...niece "drama queen" caused enough commotion to cause her mom to bring her back to my brother's...and that's where the real trouble began....

stood in front of moving cars in front of my house, screaming at my bro and my sil, ran up the street...by then cops came cornered her...she had your basic COPS Bad Boys yell down with them before they put her in their squad car handcuffed :)....

if she learned anything it might be she can't win taking on 3 squads of our city's finest! :carrot:

Not the first issue with my dear niece and surely not the last.....

Crummy parents can have great kids and vice-versa....

To be honest I think a lot of kids are fence sitters when it comes to teen-age "stuff"....

I personally saw, growing up in a tract of homes, how "life" just might depend on the street you grew up on sometimes! I grew up on a good street but boy those kids on .....whew!!!

I did plenty of things that others got way in trouble for...their circumstances turned out different than mine...

Kids are not perfect and parenst aren't either but I think you can increase the odds of good things out weighing the bad if you give a damn and keep trying...my brother will not give up on her....but he also has her mom to deal with....complicated.....all I know is raising her brother was no piece of cake for me...God love him....wink...but when he found out today what happened he said....

"Uncle Gary, aren't you so glad you raised me?!"....yep..."Now get your huge freakin' spare flat tire out of my garage that has been there since Christmas Day!"....lol...

Can't you people get it straight. 3FC is about meaningful eating.

I won't violate that by posting the recipe, but the ingredients are:Marsha's Mom's Funeral Potatoes

* 6 c. diced potatoes
* 1 can (10 3/4 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup
* 1 stick butter, melted
* 1 c. sour cream
* 2 c. cheddar cheese, grated, divided
* 1/4 c. grated onion (optional)
* Salt and pepper to taste
Now what eating plan uses recipes with 1 stick of butter and 1 cup of sour cream?

And you don't have to be Mormon to eat them. Nor necessarily dying. Or so I'm told.
