Re: Does being practical make me mean?

I saw that TB special. Of great interest to me because my maternal grandmother died of TB when my dad was 5 years old, in 1917. It was really interesting and so tragic. I think about how different my Daddy's life might have been had he had the love and guidance of a mother. So sad.

Re: Does being practical make me mean?

I thought you all would be just as flummoxed as was by these guys. I don't understand where the notion comes from that you can do something just because it is what you want. You can do what you can afford. I know some folks say I am crushing dreams when I say things like that - but just because you ...
