    Sounds like you have a weekend project. Go forth and build a national park. We'll expect a full report by Monday

    Hands off Delaware! My partner's a native and I was a longtime resident (actually live just over the border now), this is one of the few distinctions that the First/Diamond State has and enjoys talking about.

    I live in Delaware. Move here with my parents when I was 8. Born in Baltimore MD. I like it here, but it's becoming too crowded. The developers are trying to pave over the entire State!

    But Delaware has the beaches down in the southern part of the state and LOTS of outlet shopping :-)! I was there for about 5 years.

    Yeah, we vacation for a week in Lewes (pron. like Lewis for the uneducated) every summer.

    My gripe of the day is that every time the aurora borealis forecast predicts a light show overhead for us, it's CLOUDY. DAMMIT.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    merde. That is annoying, I love the northern lights. I miss that about living up north in the boonies, no light pollution.
    Calm the f**k down.

    Grumpy: I only saw them once when I was in college in MA, a rare occurence for some reason I can't recall-- but they were incredible. I'm sure you get a much more dramatic lightshow where you are.

    I need a PA. My job requires that I keep lots of data organized. I suck at organization. I have ADHD. I will always suck at organization. The only thing that keeps me from getting nailed for it is that no one really knows what I do, and I can hold lots of info in my head. A PA would have to know what I do and be able to read my mind which means I can never have a PA.

    Tell them to shove their $4 where the sun don't shine.....
