    another question - bridal gifts this time?

    I think friscokatie is right on. Find out where the girls are registered (the earlier the better before everything reasonable gets purchased) and search for a shower-type gift that fits your budget. $25-40 sounds good for a shower gift, and like Katie said, you'll be buying a more expensive...

    1/3 of competitors in Wrestlemania (1990) dead

    Painkiller addiction, long-term steroid use (and subsequent health/heart problems), alcohol abuse, the list goes on and wrestling management has done pretty much NOTHING to help and take care of their talent, just use them up. I thought things might be improving for them with Triple H near the...

    Heads Up!! RANT Alert! LOL

    Scraven, I'm like you, a trip to KFC was a rare event, usually when my grandmother brought some up or if we went to the beach and took it cold on a picnic. I haven't been to the Little Elm location, but stopped going to the Preston/Kroger location years ago. My youngest loved popcorn chicken and...

    RIP Ernie

    Oh darn, this is definitely sad news. But LLB is right, you gave Ernie a GREAT life. I remember your first post about him, you were afraid he was lonely. So sweet. RIP Ernie, and Flowers, I'm happy you'll be keeping other little critters company with your volunteer work at the SPCA.

    Flowers, sorry to hear about our friend Ernie. I'm glad you're going to keep Ernie at home and keep him happy. As we all agreed, he's had a nice long guinea pig life, and he certainly got the right home with you. Good luck with your cat tomorrow. Hopefully it's not crystals in his urinary...

    update on Ernie

    Our old buddy, Ernie! I've heard that abscesses and cysts can both be common in guinea pigs, and they come about very quickly. Hopefully someone will recommend a vet who specializes in guinea pigs or small mammals/exotics since they'll have more familiarity with those issues. Ernie's...
