1. Does your home have CAC or AC Units?

2. Does your job now, or any job you ever had, have early days off in the Summer?

3. What is the most romantic thing anyone has done for you?

That's what garnetboy said too.  But hey, I hear you.  I've had some serious technical difficulties with this place as well...

The fact that Jambles doesn't debate the issue given every opportunity to do so points to the fact that she doesn't care to debate. Innuendo, snide digs, and falsehoods are so much easier, and for some, more fun.

That and the strategic use of wood blinds and curtains (closed when the sun is on the window, open when not) can keep just about any house tolerable.  Yesterday and the day before, with daytime highs in the 90s, the house stayed right at 82.  Toasty, but not heat stroke territory.  And the basement has been a nice constant 72, so when I have trouble sleeping, I head down there.

Really? Staying together is that rare where tou live?

You DO know the divorce statistic is OVER 50% and then goes higher for subsequent marriages, right? Many of my friends and family relationships either don't make it to the 20 year mark. 

My husband is 70 and I am almost 57, and the vast majority of our friends have been narrowed longer than we have. There are split-ups, of course, which are sad, but the people involved USUALLY go in to happier lives after the split up, so we just hug them and wish them all the best and try to assist in the transition if there is a need for that.

Yeah, we have seen so many break ups and divorces in the last 25 years of being together.

Oh, sorry...I have no clue as to what's on your facebook page only know what is posted in the thread up there, she's just the only one constantly mentioning what is on your facebook page, so I took a guess.  I will amend my comment to stay I don't know anyone other than Jams who looks at your facebook page on a regular basis.

My pictures are only on facebook. How would anyone know if I "look" like I am not at my ideal weight?

Yes, we know the divorce statistics. It's just that among our friends, marriage longevity is much more common than not. Most of our friends have long since crlebrated their silver anniversary.

Sure you did, I quoted the words for you in my post, here they are again.

<<Thanks Bord. I am a lucky girl no matter what "strangers" think. From the relationships I see from others IRL, I have a lot to be happy about and I count my blessings every day>>
