1. Favorite face moisturizer? (My clinique is running out and wondered if there is something better or same quality without breaking my face out)

2. Outside--which do you prefer or have....table with umbrella or table under a tent/gabezo?

3. When getting a mani/pedi, do you always get both at the same time?

Respectful or not, this simply isn't appropriate debate material.

You might want to remember the debates that arose from Newtown too. Thank spring if you get a chance. Don't debate if you don't want to.

I guess it was silly of me to ask people who haven't a shred of common decency to display a little of it.

That wasn't appropriate, either.

Within hours of an emergency, everyone on facebook is an instant expert and they know EXACTLY what should have been done to prevent the problem, much more than the people who live in the area, the FEMA people, the US Meteorological Service, Homeland Security, the Coast Guard, the School District, the Building and Safety Code Inspectors, etc, etc, etc. So what I think is that the people who know so doggone much about what needs to happen to prevent fatalities for each and every human or natural disaster should quit bemoaning what can't be changed, and start calling up people in places where emergencies haven't yet happened, and spend their evidently boundless energies and expertise telling everyone what to do and how to do it to prevent future loss of life.

Severe weather was in the forecast, They could have taken precautionary measures.. Texas is tornado alley too, I remember living there and them predicting a bad storm, they shut down all schools early but it ended up passing us by all together..... Better to err on caution than wait and see.

I have lived in Texas for 18 years and never once have heard of a school closing because of a thunderstorm forcast.  Hurricane, yes.  Thunderstorm, no.

Round of applause bord.. b/c you know what, The proactive forces in my then city of SugarLand TX went through enough what ifs to know to cancel classes if even the threat of severe weather was on their radar.... Perhaps Okalahmoma can learn something, I dunno, Some think otherwise. And funny enough, that was before people chatted on facebook.

Shout out for SugarLand TX, Lol.

A few months ago, we had an active tornado warning in our county.  The schools could not release the children and put them on busses while the warning was active. B/c the schools cycle the busses, dismissal at the rest of the schools in the district was delayed. I went and got my kids once the sirens stopped. The fact of the matter is: they're safer in the school than they are in my car.

One of my very best friends watched the tornado yesterday. She watched it. It is easy to Monday morning QB this thing. But the fact of the matter is, I was under a moderate threat today. We had a sprinkle just before DS's baseball game. Not a bolt of lightening or clap of thunder was heard at all. If they called school every single time we were at risk for severe weather--the kids would never have a day off. What happened yesterday was utterly tragic. But second guessing now isn't going to help anything.

Perhaps you should first learn how to spell Oklahoma properly? My nephew has spelled it correctly since he was 3. It's a song, for crying out loud...Bea--help a sister out and sing it for us.
