Weekend plans?

Where have you traveled? What places do you want to go but haven't yet?

What's the unhealthies food item in your house right now? The healthiest?

What's for lunch? Dinner?

That is large, esp when compared to smaller towns that are not even a fourth of that.

Texas is notorious for large school districts. The district we moved from when we left the state had just tapped 100,000 students. Yes, it's Houston but still...

its td usually a point of human connection to say, "Hey, I know someone that you might know!"  Humans are generally social animals who strive to make connections.  It is only on this board where it is a bad thing to  engage in normal social banter.

"its td usually a point of human connection to say, "Hey, I know someone that you might know!"" ------- True, like the student at your U whose parents are friends of ours, or the very nice woman I met some years ago, because she was friends with a fellow boardie and happened to come to Greece on business.

^^^I forgot the coolest - the time I was in a film about Greece, because it was done by a relative of someone I knew from these boards.

Generally speaking, of course.  But when you secretly donate to a cause b/c you didn't want the leader to find out that's anti-social.

The school district my kids attended before moving here, also in Texas has about 1000.

and now you're turning anonymous donations into something sinister?  LOL.  I would have donated to your team, but I didn't want the unending crap you'd throw into my face for the next 18 to 400 years for doing it.  Instead, I took the money and put it towards my new embroidery sewing machine.  Mean I didn't get the tax write off, but since I give over $3K every year to Siamese rescue, I figured the $5 I'd have given your team wasn't really going to make much of a difference on my taxes.

And I really like my new sewing machine :D

I like to believe most humans are social beings, Meaning there is are common traits and interests that separate them from lions and bears. Of course there are anti-social people out there too, I see some of that on this board - And I see it in irl too.

Thanks for letting me know.  That is kind.
