[ - ] I lived with an emotionally and verbally abusive ex for years. I wonder why I didn't get out sooner. My answer is for the sake of the kids. But how did I ever think that was better for the kids? Looking back, his treatment of me was so bad that I am sure he suffers from some mental disease. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The legit answer would be something requiring programming skills. For example, if you have a facility with MySQL along with a major coding language like C, then you will have some opportunities. That takes time to learn and to master, which means it behooves you to start now. The upside - all the materials required for mastery are free online and in libraries. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Just had a weird experience. I am over 50. I used to absolutely love Kristy McNichol in the 70s. I just always thought she was awesome. My mom died last year and I was going through her old boxes of photos and found one from 1950 when my mom was 14 and at that age she looks just like KM. I never saw this picture of my mom before or really saw any pictures of her as a young teenager. But I guess it was always somewhere in the back of my head. I know.

That's called potluck. If you get invited to a dinner, and it's not explicitly a potluck and you haven't been assigned or volunteered to bring something, you are not responsible for contributing. At most, a host gift, and a thank you note after. [ Reply | More ]

Um, no. If someone invites you over, and they have planned the meal, it is presumptuous and rude to bring a course when they told you not to.
