Been thinking about this a lot. I would love for all of you to share why you are grateful to live here. The rules are:

No "proud to be an American" waving the flag
No "it's my God given right..."
No politics
Just gratefulness

I'll start. Sure, I'm struggling, but my children eat well, wear appropriate clothing for the weather, and sleep in a warm comfortable beds in a completely safe environment. And they go (safely) to great schools which are preparing them for college and the future.

I wonder sometimes what die was cast that allowed me to be born here rather than, say, Rwanda or Libya or Afghanistan.

Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks.

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt? We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, "You don't know Jack Schitt!" Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.

Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt.

Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married Miss O. Needeep They had one son, Jack.

In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deap Schitt and Dip Schitt.

Against her parents' objections, Deap Schitt married her cousin Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced.

Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and, because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.

Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chick N. Schitt.

Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.

The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials.

The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Hoarse. Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.

Now when someone says, "You don't know Jack Schitt," you can correct them.

Need advice. I live in wet Massachusetts. My kitten has had two ticks so far, one the freaking size of the top knuckle of my pinky. It was gross. I had one biting my forearm today! It hurt and that was how I discovered it. After he was detached, I was bruised, sore, and it was swollen a bit. I put rubbing alcohol on it and my daughter (the Aggie) thinks both of us are okay so far.

I don't like getting bit. And I don't like the kitten getting bit. His checkup isn't for two weeks, and he hasn't had any shots yet, just a Hartz flea treatment. Anyone have any advice for keeping these awful ticks away? Anything I can use on us or do tfor the house? Any advice would be greatly appreciated PS Can't keep him inside. He was a stray and the time I kept him in, he was so depressed. So I take my chances.

I don't know if anyone can help, just hoping. Thanks.

After Jerry Garcia died, St. Peter led him to a heavenly music studio. Inside were ALL the greats: Buddy Holly, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Keith Moon, John Lennon, Duane Allman, you name them...

Jerry was excited until he saw the glum looks on all their faces. "Why so sad?" he asked. "We are the best and can rock throughout eternity!" They just stared at him sadly.

Suddenly Karen Carpenter entered and yelled, "Everyone in their places! Let's start with "Close to You'". I love this joke.

Hi, since I seem to have a problem responding, I'll post. Those assholes...They recently traveled to Framingham MA to protest a HIGH SCHOOL play about Matthew Shepherd. Fortunately, the anti-Westboro people, kids included, protested against them. Sadly, these "Christians" couldn't stay around for a discussion since they had a military funeral or something to disrupt.

They actually were going to disrupt the funerals of those poor, poor Amish girls who were so brutally murdered. A savvy radio talk show host let them spew their hatred on his show so that the grieving families could mourn in peace.

And they call themselves Christians? I was raised as an Episcoplian and I never learned this hatred. I only learned love and acceptence. Unbelievable. Thanks, guys

Probably Rod Stewart's "Unplugged". The only reason I got that is since I received a "Tears for Fears" tape (also embarrassing) and exchanged it. I listened to it once and once was enough.

Canada, of course. It has a similar life style, but has better health care, more compassion for its citizens and doesn't go to war every other year. Plus I love cold weather.

I actually met Meryl Streep before...And you know what, she was exactly the same then as she is now. Beautiful, humble, professional, talented.

Hi all, my twin boys have read all the books that younger kids read. They never liked the Hardy Boys, understood since girls their age don't like Nancy Drew anymore either. They are finished with the Magic Treehouse and Goosebump/Fear Street series. They used to love disasters, especially shipwrecks and vocanic eruptions but not any more. Now they only like the "Wimpy Kid" books but they have already read them many times.

My daughter and I have tried to turn them onto books like "The Indian in the Cupboard" or "Because of Winn Dixie" or even Harry Potter but they refuse. They hate everything we suggest. Do any of you have ideas for them? Thanks. I'm at my wit's end.
