    Nice job on the headlines! Chicken pot pie--heh, heh

  2. And where have YOUR headlines been? Frank J. goes and gets drunk and makes a big deal about having new contributors to his site, and all the while you can contribute here, and won't.

    Do I need to set up your own blog so you'll post stuff? What's up?

    And the same for your big sister.

    My headlines have been replaced by the two papers I have had to write for my doctorate. I have class on Saturday. I am trying to do some, and I am even pondering a post, but I am paying cash up front for the doctorate...the blog is just fun!!

    Why have I not been posting headlines? Well, let's see. Monday through Friday night: out of town at two educational conferences. Friday night: fall in bed exhausted. Saturday: wash clothes, do chores and "Saturday kinds of stuff". Sunday...visit with family and neighbors. Monday: pack and go out of town again. Tuesday night: on the way back in, drop by funeral home, go eat with friends, drop in bed exhausted. Wednesday (today): out of town again to go to a school for consultations and such. Stay late. Get home at 7:45 PM. Unload vehicle. Change clothes. Grab a bite to eat. Get on computer and discover basil has become famous.
