  1. Tuesday after Labor Day!
  2. I do honor the veterans of our military, but morally, the wars that America has taken part in were completely unnecessary for our defence. So on Memorial Day, I celebrate the dead of The Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and The War Between The States. I have looked at the history, and I see no other justified wars. And again, nothing against the vets, just against the government for getting us into such unwarranted wars.
  3. My mom's a kindergarten teacher, and she always gets mad when we see back to school sales in june, and back to school catalogues in the mail. It's kind of funny.
  4. My family and I have never had a pet. Don't feel sorry for me.
  5. I'm curious about something, everyone keeps mentioning Awana, but I have never had any contact with it. Or heard what it is. Could somebody inform me? Stupid, Signing off.
  6. I only reply when something controversial is being discussed. So often I'll look, won't see anything juicy, then leave.
  7. The Irish can be very fanciful/drunk.
  8. Love your answer.
  9. I have been intentionally very somber all month, (Lent) and I am looking forward too Easter more than I ever have in my life.
  10. What does everybody know about St. Patrick, historically? He has so many legends surrounding him, I'm just curious to see how many made their way to modern American culture. For example, there's one legend where St. Patrick makes 3 demands of God. the first is that on the day that the world ends, Ireland would sink below the waves and the Irish would all die instead of seeing the tribulation. The 2nd is that any Irishman who confesses on his deathbed would be recieved into heaven, Catholic tradition says that normally they would not. An the 3rd is that St. Patrick would judge the Irish instead of Christ. God says that he can deal with the first two, but he can't grant the third demand. St. Patrick gets mad and goes on a fast, as he's on the point of dying, God grants the third demand instead of letting him die, because you know, St Patrick is just so important. So there you have it, St. Patrick will judge the Irish .
  11. I especially liked it because I didn't know the story like I knew the other ones from reading the books by G. A. Henty, and so I wasn't mad at the directors or whoever, when they would leave out a part or add something I didn't like. One thing I don't like is the feminization (not to be sexist) of the main character. In no G. A. Henty book does the main character cry, have fear, or make a mistake. I am very passionate on this subject.
  12. I live in Northern California, and guess what? We don't get snow!
  13. I listen to them on cycle, that way I don't listen to one over and over again.
  14. In the Reign Of Terror was the first G. A. Henty story I ever read, I only did it because it was the shortest. I always hate it when Henty takes the side of the losers of a war, it's so depressing.
  15. It definitely does not matter what order they are listened to in. Period. Stop.
