LOVE IT! Having had several throughout my life I could not agree more!
I am sure my current buddy Boogie Man would agree as well. I would ask but he is currently napping and we must not disturb! (;-)

A suspected pregnancy needs to be confirmed by your doctor, since most symptoms can be caused by other factors such as stress or illness.

Jesse, That is true. When was 9/11? When did you tell us this stuff? Maybe they wouldn't have let while the rulbbe was still on the ground. Maybe suggesting that it was brought down by explosives would have brought too much heat? There could have been protests. People could have demnded answers. Jesse coyld have gone to Bush and put him in a chicken wing. Then body slam Larry Silverstein

I am so intrigued by these seetencns:Our memories of life experiences are influenced by our unique perspective during the experiences as well as at the time of remembering. The myriad of events that occur and the vast knowledge that we gain throughout our lives influence our memories of the past. If our autobiographical memories are always reconstructed and influenced by our current perspective, is writing an accurate memoir ever possible?”Galley readers of my memoir have encouraged me to write more in the tone of the poor little white trash girl that I was. I find this very difficult since becoming an educated, sophisticated, sixty-something. But I guess that is the difference between being a good writer and a great writer. A great writer would rise to the challenge!

You didn't mention the money. hmmmn. I do 35-40 posts a week, and the part that sucks the most is wkroing on Sundays. (or the weekend) I have yet to catch up and do like 50 posts in advance so i can take a week off. lol. I do like it though and my niche is fun. There is never a shortage of material within the green living arena.I would also mention that a good chair and a fast PC are a bloggers best friends. hehe.
