This just in! Study shows Republicans have more fulfilling sex lives! Survey says as much as 40% better!

Meanwhile Mormons surveyed are at 54% more satisfied.

No results posted for Democrats or the Green Party . . .

"I saw Commanche a lot as a child..." You mean when it was just a pony? Wow, you guys go way back, huh?

When I arrived at KU, I considered Commanche a "must see." I remembered the Disney movie "Tonka" starring Sal Mineo. Yes, I'm that old.

Sometimes going for a walk involves using four wheels. You may have seen me, I am hard to miss. Just ask the driver of the silver Escalade. The cold damp air this morning made places hurt I don't even have anymore. Was that funny RoeD? pm me.

Ret. Could be a trap. Good price but I always talk to the local golf courses first.

Dan. Yup.

The liquor store was really crowded at lunch. There was a kid with gauged ears manning the register. I'm not sure he worked there. Anyway, he delighted in telling me they weren't getting any more of the chocolate ale for about a year. 'S okay, I have some hersheys & a mixmaster.
