    Actually you can still get twinkies outside the states
    It's just the U.S. license that is <<expired>>


    Can't quite get a handle on anyone actually believing the world is going to end.
    Course, there are those that believe campaign rhetoric, too, so there you go .... :)

    Not sure if it's been discussed, but the Maya didn't predict this as the end of the world, just the end of a long-count calendar. Another starts after that.

    In fact, inscriptions with reference to dates after this Friday were found as well.

    the Mayans weren't nearly as goofy as people on the interwebz

    Had a group of kids (aged 13-14) seriously ask me what I thought about the world ending 12/21 the other day. I told them to prepare they should have a comfy lawn chair ready so that they can enjoy the view.

    I was ultra impressed to receive a smile and nod from each as they understood what was meant by that.

    Unpossible. You just don't remember, which means you wouldn't know if you had or hadn't.
    I'm going with that.:p

    Hah! My husband's family lived in Warrington for many generations! The original farm house was on a lot of property that was divided up to all the kids and their kids and so on....
    Before we moved to Point Pleasant, PA, east of Doylestown, we lived in his Grandmothers 309 sq ft sears and robuck kit house his family built. You wouldn't recognize Warrington now, it's like driving in NE
    Philly with all of the stripmalls, no more farm and :(

    We went to Quakertown to get a stove but they were so mean to us, we left. Turned out good for us anyway as we ended up getting ours used from a friend :)

    Small world!
