It's no less than one would expect from Band members. Contact with the local bands at competitions and games has always left me in awe of the quality of these fine young people. It seems that bands and their music brings out the best in the best people - well done North Moore
Did the writer ever thought of growing his own? From my garden I can support my family (and several neighbors) with healthy produce of fruits, vegetables and herbs and if I wait long enough - spices. It certainly tastes better than the stuff in the store and while not perfectly shaped, I know it is fresh. You don't need a lot either, just kitchen scraps for compost and lots of hard work. Ah Ha, I see a problem.....
I would tell them "Congratulations for getting your degree" - now remember that a lot of the very rich people never finished college let alone got a degree.
I fondly remember singing "I know an old woman who swallowed a fly" to my children. Would I sing it in Church - I'd be petrified. Of course now my kids are teenagers, they'd die of embarrassment just to let others know that they know the song! I also know my views on the Gay community - it may be worth visiting this Church to get first hand immersion in their views.
I was always under the impression that I didn't have an accent until I came to the US. My wife and I have still retained our English brogue. My daughter who to us sounds very American - to her school chums she sounds English. Many apologies but my son (who is nearly two years younger than his sister), is quite the little Yank!
If embarrassment causes death, I've killed my children loads of times. My daughter reviles at the way I wear my trousers "under my armpits" whereas my son is mortified when I pulled them down to imitate his underwear bearing "from the hood style". As for my musical taste, I can keep current with all their latest crazes but try and show them how I can do the Harlem shake or Gangnam style and they are aghast. Of course, all this causes my wife and me intense amusement and a willingness to continue "killing" our children all the more! Our PDA always sends them off scurrying to deny that they are with us. ( PDA - public display of affection).
$50,000 - pocket change to some CEO's.
What a great piece. My grandfather instilled in me a love of gardening and it was enhanced by my father. I use the raised bed system to ensure that I have soil I can trust. Six beds for the three crop rotation and we're almost self sufficient in vegetables. I did try growing crops right through the winter, failed miserably with lettuces but succeeded well with Kale and carrots. I think the biggest lesson is patience and if it doesn't work - "Oh well, you can try again next year"!
I've also found that Black History thing to be negative for interracial harmony. It creates bias and resentment. Shortly, you will be celebrating the "green" - are you aware of how digusting that is to people who wear the "orange"!
Returning to the story, some person has commented on some event where she didn't see it, she wasn't there, she has no knowledge of the chain of events. She need to take advice from my Mom, "Shut up about what you don't know about". As for the police, don't break the law and you have nothing to worry about - apart from loss of time which seems a small price to pay to keep our streets safe.
I think this thread has gone way off track. Why is it that everytime certain people seem fit to turn an interesting conversation piece into a slanging match?
