      Tell me you don't wear your white shoes and white belt until after Easter.

      I carried a small container of Halon when I wore the suit. Told people that it was a bottle of cologne.
      You are correct; the whites don't come out until after Easter.

      A 39 cent stamp. How ridiculous. Why not round up to 40?

        Cheffie, that is government logic for you right there. Just makes you shake your head and wonder eh?


        As for the 39 cent stamp instead of 40 cents - see above writing.

        It is the same reason that gas is $2.18 and 9/10. Now why in the Hell can't you just say it is $2.19? Would that be so frickin' bad? Would it?

          Using the words government and logic in the same sentence is an oxymoron.

          At least I found out before I have to mail off the Valentine's day card.

          • Well if that is the case, Why can't we just mail letters without any postage at all? Just like SuperChef said, put the return address to where you want the letter to go.

            • Have we talked about soft drinks yet? I sure could go for an ice cold Dr. Pepper.

                          • I think I have to acknowlege and agree with my esteemed collegues, Mr Mitchell and Mr Garcia. (although a substitute of rum works well with me too.)

                            But for a low octane drink, coke gets the $. I tried to drink Canada Dry once, but there's just way too many lakes 'n rivers up there.
