You are a SpringfieldFan if you use "Your are" instead of "You are" or "You're". ;)

"H" as in haughty minded as with some? Well yes, I don't want to give him too much credit, he might get too happy...... :devil: You might want to drop him a note or say a prayer for him as they found a mass in his lungs that they told him looked like cancer, doesn't matter that he is a Democrat does it? ;)

I was careful to research before I moved here: the PNW doesn't get any more rain than Ohio (well, Portland, at least). It just rains more often. And I decided I'd take a little more rain, anyway, if it meant eradicating 75% of the snow you get in the Midwest.

Portland averages like four inches of snow a year and is both warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. I thought it was perfect. I guess we'll find out.

He is a fellow human being. Send me his email. I'd like to let him know he is in my prayers.
