RE Forum lowers cost of Health Care

This may also explain why this is the best Forum on the Internet:

Senior Citizens Reduce Depression with Internet Use, Can Save on Nation's Health Care Bill

bbbamI and Freebird alone are probably saving us $1000s on psychiatric care, and possibly a lot on Viagra.

There's usually something of interest to get into on this and other forums. The forums are like the old neighborhood bar (or so I understand never having been a neighborhood bar person) as a guy friend explained it to me. He's right. It's great for those who can't get out much for one reason or another. Great spot-on article, thanks.

Aw shucks. What a wonderful compliment.

Well thank you darlin'. I must admit nothing gives me greater pleasure than extending the life of at least one member.

On the other hand... if life-times are measured in heartbeats, my thoughts of you have shortened mine.

Hi everyone...I skipped dessert at Red Lobster tonight so I could see how this thread was progressing. I also have a nice bridge to sell you if you believe that one
So...heartbeats...growing members...kissing...
Why is it warm in here all of a sudden ?

Interesting history of the term can be found here.
Yankee: Definition from Answers.com

As far as baseball teams go, Let's Go Mets!
FWIW, whenever I was down south, I did my darndest to be a nice Yankee and NOT a typical Noo Yawker. I would refer to myself as a "Yank" at the right moment, just to "break the ice" and get it over with. Most folks grinned.
