    heard of situations like this before. But never experienced it until recently. Drats! Five kids and I thought I was going to get away clean (pun intended)!

    never had chess squares? never had chess pie. Let me say this much about chess squares, damn delicious. one of my favorites and I had any in quite a long time. It sounds like the squares are probably a lot easier to make after reading all of that stuff about making the crust. I am curious as to whether chess pie is actually more delicious than chess squares. If you could find someone to post a recipe for chess squares that would be much appreciated. Maybe find one and post it myself. Yeah, thanks for the motivation.

    Another sideshow to attract and distract people, you blame others for the all the trouble when its you that has issue. Here’s a magic trick “change”, then you won’t care, and that’s a good thing.

    Why is the air conditioner on in my classroom on a day like today? I am going to turn into a human icicle before this class is over

    I totally think weird when people call “Coke” soda or pop or even SODA POP. I call “Sprite”….SPRITE: “Coke”…COKE: “Dr.Pepper”… Dr PEPPER. Just like my shoes; I call my dress shoes… DRESS SHOES and my Tennis shoes I call either SHOES or NIKES [if they are]. I have some Kin by marriage and when they ask if I want a “POP” I tell them “If you want a SOCK.”

    Why do we always said that the fast food is responsible for the obesity of our children. When are we gonna began to said that the grosseries store are responsible for what they are selling on the shelves. Do you think is better to buy chips, soft drink, chocolat, pop corn, etc.

    When I was in nam, on occasion we have water to drink, but we did have soda pop or beer. When it came time to bless the sacrament we used what we had, crackers and soda pop if needed. I never had to use beer, but I heard that those in supply used it. not what in the cup or who passes it that matters, what is in your as you worship.
