I've learned -

That you can get by on charm for about 15 minutes. After that, you'd better know something.

What have you learned?

If your female friend likes your boyfriend/male but your male friend/father/brother thinks he's a lightweight, listen to your male friend. Men see things in other men a lot of women miss or don't realize are important.

The reverse is true as well. Good one.

I've learned that some people haven't learned that yet.

I have learned that some charming old guys can easily score big points by referring to grey headed fifty somethings as "young lady." :)

There's no better tasting fried chicken than a mean rooster.

PQ, since I'm certainly older than you, you must be talking about me. :)

I've learned that it is very important not to sweat the small stuff--without forgetting the details--and to have the wisdom to know the difference.

I've also learned that preparing and sharing good food, is one of the best investments of time, money and talent one can make.

(remember that: "This I Believe" thing on NPR or PBS a few years ago?)

How about this: Don't say it if you don't mean it and don't say it mean if you do . . ?

You are sooooo right! Good Food...Good Friends...Good Times.

Some people can readily make one want to scream and throw bricks, but whether one actually does, well, that's a personal decision. Don't lay it off on the instigator.

Kerry, so what happens when men get married to men or women get married to women? :wink:

You stay married long enough you share a communal brain. Any body ask us a question we look at each other and determine whose field of expertise the question falls in. But, whoever answers knows their mate has their six.

I've learned that...
dogs love unconditionally.
women are fickle and men have contracted a different fickleness.
dogs love unconditionally.
women are from Venus and men are from Mars.
dogs love unconditionally.
I shot three rounds into my neighbors window. She retaliated with a rocked
launcher.
her dog still loves me unconditionally.
