Costco pastries (cheese garlic buns mmmmm), and am sipping coffee as I write this.
Do tell. That sounds more like an appetizer or meal than something you would eat with morning coffee....
They're SO GOOD. I heat them in the microwave for like 30 seconds and the cheese gets all melty. Between that and the coffee my breath reeks now though. ;D

Good morning all. Here is something to brighten your day.

Apparently Mississippi State coach Mike Leach retweeted that very picture and it's created some controversy, costing him a player. I think we might be too sensitive.

A Matter of Degree: How a Jury Decided That a Coffee Spill Is Worth $2.9 Million
--- McDonald's Callousness Was Real Issue, Jurors Say, In Case of Burned Woman --- How Hot Do You Like It?
I still think jury awards have gotten completely out of control:

1. it is costing everyone a lot of money in the form of increased prices, and
2. giving everyone a wrongheaded attitude that anything bad that happens is someone else's fault (and if possible, they should sue)

Do you agree?
Do you agree that McD was 2.7M at fault?
I agree with your points 1 and 2. I do not agree McD was at fault in the hot coffee incident.

Good morning, and welcome to another beautiful day in the neighborhood. Here is some relatively obscure history material to keep you occupied if you are wondering how to stay busy during the quarantine. Enjoy.

Maddy, you might enjoy the first article in the second link to get a perspective on living in the frontier boondocks of the 1700s. I think we all have it pretty good in comparison to then. :)

I am currently reading Pride and Prejudice for my English class and I cannot say that I am enjoying it.

The version without zombies? Yeah, I remember that being slow.

lol. I must say, if this book is an accurate reflection of society from the times, it seems to me that manner and propriety was of much greater importance then.

I've resolved to read 10 pages a day from this 300 page book. So, I should be done in a month. Plenty of time. 8)

That's just abuse. Young men shouldn't be made to read that stuff. Read something from Sun Tzu instead. Write up your book report on the Art of War using the character names from randomly selected Jane Austen novels and see if anyone notices.

Smith1776,

Watch the movie “Pride and Prejudice” with Donald Sutherland and Keira Knightly. Sutherland is great and I am not a fan of his. I thought Knightly was excellent, too.

And would the Terminator approve of either the book or the movie?

Good call. That way I'll get a good "feel" for the film before going through the book. That should help me pick it up more thoroughly.

lol Arnold as a time travelling cyborg sent back in time to kill the mother of his enemy before he's even born!! HOW CAN THAT NOT BE AWESOME.

Good morning PPers. I trust if you are reading this you are well. I hope you stay that way, one day at a time.
