    My reaction was a little different. Like, great, let's not let kids actually visit farms and touch those smelly, dirty animals. I'd much rather see the kind of money that it would take to put a up a pseudo-farm playground invested in letting kids experience the natural environment.

    Maybe I should try that... I bet they would approve anything just to get me to leave.

    My wife looks amazing in a skirt and heals. But if it is below 90 degrees, it is to cold.

    Leggings are ok, as long as it is not in an overweight woman and they are the color "nude"... Then it is just scary.
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Why no menorah for the Cyburbia header this week?

    Hanukkah doesn't start until 5:04 PM at the server lcoation.

    Also, is there something we can do with this?

    For example ...

    Duuuuuude? I'm sooooooo hungry, duuuuuude.

    Or, since we have and , we might as well have .

    EDIT: I guess it's a function of how popular you are and if you're in the right group.

    Saturday, dude. Cyburbia's busy times are the inverse of other forums; very active during workdays, slower on weekends and evenings.

    Now, if you saved CluBbbbbbe until Monday ...

    Just spent 3 hours setting the planning commission calendar. Instead of a regular monthly meeting day, we meet with the shortest time frame to get an application to city council for final action. In KS there is a 20 day public notice period. Also 14 days from the PC action before council consideration. Oh, and the official newspaper only comes out on Wednesdays. I take the council meeting dates and work the days backwards. We are just soooo customer friendly.

    I just ate a little breakfast.....some cheese pizza Combos I keep in my desk drawer. The package proudly proclaims "made with REAL CHEESE" so now I am feeling especially healthy and vibrant this morning. It's important to eat good wholesome foods and Kansas wheat and Wisconsin dairy are certainly the very bedrock foundations of good nutrition.
