Have you ever had a day
where a year's worth of events all happens in one
Then, the son of a dear coworker who had just passed away, told us that he wanted to keep his mother's genealogy website alive, but needed an expert in the same field to accept e-mail questions which arise (French-Canadian genealogy).

the middle of all this, my cell phone dings with a new
text message -- MY DAUGHTER IS PREGNANT! I sit in a
stunned but happy coma, unable to do anything. When my

better to wait until I stop feeling this need to make my
daughter go deaf, so I called my own mom instead. She
has heard me scream for many decades and is used to it.

just got back from the grocery store and I have a few
gripes. I was looking at the "ALL" brand of washing
detergent. The large bottle costs MORE per ounce than
the smaller bottle! What gives? Doesn't the company save
money by being able to use less bottles? Isn't this
supposed to be cheaper per ounce because it costs the
company less to produce per ounce? What happened to a
