Why can't you type in the word m o r t g a g e on this board? It comes up as *SPAM*. Here's an example. I'm typing the word *SPAM* without the spaces.

PD: Mother Kicked Out of Concert for Having Baby in Pit Area

Whatever happened to hiring the neighborhood babysitter? If tots aren't dying in hot cars they are being subjected to moshpits. Not too bright.

I can remember as five year olds my cousin and I being left in the car whilst my father and uncle were having a driking session at the pub....sob sob, however the car would always be strategically parked in such a way so that they could hand us big glasses of raspberry and lemonade out of the pub window....we loved it, our respective mothers would have frowned....Way back in those enlightened times NZ pubs closed at six pm, six days a week, so we weren't kept out to all hours. Due to the early closing waaaaay back then a phenomenon developed known as the six o'clock swill, which entailed masses of people mostly men, this after all was NZ in the sixties, rushing from their places of work directly to the nearest boozer and consuming as much alcohol as was humanly possible prior to six pm. Six fifteen pm became a dangerous time to be on the road in those pre seatbelt and airbag days......

I had no idea there were mosh pits at Brad Paisley concerts. :mrgreen: But, I do agree that it was poor judgement on her part. My son's first concert was an Ozzfest at the age of 5. We had seats underneath the pavilion at the amphitheater so he wouldn't be in the hot sun all day on the lawn, and he wore earplugs. Most people thought it was cool, but we did get a few nasty remarks from some people who thought we had no business bringing him to the show. But, how many people his age can say that they saw the original Black Sabbath perform? Although I must say that Sabbath seemed to have a hard time following Judas Priest in my opinion.

GG:
That was an interesting story, and I can imagine that 6:15 wouldn't have been a good time to be on the road in those days.

Thank you. We put an offer in on one of the two houses we looked at yesterday. I'm not getting my hopes up this time. I learned the hard way, buying a house here isn't......well, it just isn't normal. We've been to escrow twice and I lost count of how many offers we've submitted over the past year.

Sigh.....I just want a house. :(

A colleague at work is going on holiday for 2 weeks tomorrow. He hasn't stopped telling people for the last 4 months or so, since he booked. For the last couple of days though he is literally telling everybody about how he will be sitting on the beach in a couple of days time and what the count down is until he flies.
To set the scene, he is 46 and married with a 6 year old daughter and he's been away loads of times throughout his life.
My question is why is he going on about so much. We all look forward to our holiday but I'm wondering if there is a deeper psychological reason behind this really over the top behavior. Earlier I said that my wife and I will be having a picnic on Saturday as it's our birthday and his response was that he will be on the beach on Saturday.

It's almost like he's trying to convince himself but I know that he is genuinely looking forward to it, if you know what I mean

Sounds like a snob with a big ego, from the way you tell it.

My habit of wearing gloves to stop my sun allergy has given me a peculiar tanline.

Setting up an alibi, for an upcoming heinous crime.

Thing is he is the kind of guy who really thinks he hates his job but if he took a step back he'd realise how good he has it. He#s just always grumpy and stressed.
It's his marriage that he is unhappy about. When he comes back from holiday he'll be even grumpier than usual because he is back at work.........

That's what I was trying to get across initially and I do wonder whether there is a deeper psychological thing going on?

PS - what did you have lunch Plook? I've got Heinz Spaghetti Bolognese on toast 8)

I love falafel. The best falafel I've ever had was when I worked in New York City in Hell's Kitchen, there was this little dumpy, hole in the wall across the street from my office that had the best falafel and it was cheap for NYC. I miss it a lot.

I do too - but this one was dry n stale.
I remember in the simpsons they were dumb-downed called 'crunch patties', and the humous was called 'flavor sauce'.

I have been making my own raw hummus lately. The last time I put way too much garlic in it.

My friend made some falafel once and being an inexperienced cook, and a bit of a tosser in general, he put in a whole bulb of garlic in thinking that was what a clove was!

My cousins did that too, on national television, when they were on Big Brother 5.

:mrgreen: So I'm not the only one! When I was a kid my parents were out one day and I decided to surprise them by making dinner. The instructions on the jar of spaghetti sauce said to add two cloves of garlic for extra flavor but I added two bulbs, thinking they were cloves. They walked in and said they could smell it from out in the street. Well they were definitely surprised.
