    I would hate to be convenience store clerk along Georgia's border with FL and AL, two states that do not have Mega Millions. People must be swarming over the state borders to buy tickets.

    I related last week about 3 cats, 3 tummy flus or something similar. The boy cat had a relapse and spent most of today at the vet's, getting IV fluids and bloodwork. He's home and hopefully will recover. Unfortunately, his illness cost us both kitchen cushioned mats and yet another big vet bill. When it rains...

    It breaks my heart to read about how this poor woman was victimized by the evil McDonalds Corp

    Can you believe that 1,2,3,4,5 with a mega of 6 has never won the lotto?

    Today is National Cleavage Day. How are the ladies of Cyburbia celebrating this auspicious day?

    Pictures are appreciated.

    I have awesome cleavage, the only best part of middle age

    I absolutely was made for the movie ST Elmo's Fire as I believe it came out exactly the year I graduated college, 1986 - though none of the characters describe me per se, I identified with it completely, more so than Sixteen Candles for instance (80's movies could be a thread, mods... if it's not already?)

    If you are not still considering cleavage reading at this point , I will announce I gave myself a professional enema and cleaned up my LinkedIn profile with my new position and carving up previous positions (poll to come under separate thread) - I start Monday and LinkedIn won't let me put April, wth...

    I am buying tickets for family members in FL (and my own). You can't win unless you play!

    Years ago I saw a quiz online that was called 'rack or crack' and you had to guess whether the cleavage was of the upper or lower variety based on the photo.

    Hey, I just realized the ladies don't get all the honor today.....and we guys can celebrate cleavage day too! Yay!

    After giving it a lot of thought, I believe that cleavage is too great for just one day. I will be writing my congressman and senators to declare the month of May as National Cleavage Month. And that June 28 be declared Mammorial Day, a national and observed holiday.

    Thank you.

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    It's hard to believe I get this Friday off with pay. For this reason, this atheist has an 8:00 tee time. Welcome to the buckle of the Bible Belt.

    This morning I emailed a columnist at the Miami Herald in regard to his column about the city of Sanford's handling of the Trayvon Martin issue, and how the city's mismanagement has affected the city. He had a few geographic errors. Really; he's in FL and he can't look at a map to check the location of a story? I got a nice thank-you email back.
