Try to keep it civil though. The rules still apply here.

    Surely she'll get you a zymology textbook.

      Her first choice was actually a teddy bear, but her mom is going to help her out.

        When my granddaughter was about 3, her Daddy let her pick out her Mommy's birthday cake. It was Rapunzel from Tangled.

        Needless to say, Mommy loved the cake anyway.

        I bet you would have adored the teddy bear!

          Every year here we get shoeboxes stuffed with very thoughtful and useful gifts to give out to needy children. The boxes are labelled for sex of child and age range, and contain a range of stuff, from toys and fun stuff, to school gear (pens, colour pencils, notebooks), to simple clothes (a T-shirt, shorts etc). They're great. The look on kids faces when they get a whole box of good stuff - often the first ever Christmas gift they've had - is priceless.

          Samaritan's Purse, and all who contribute to it.
          Amen. I need to start doing that again. I have missed the last couple of years. No excuses.

            One of our firm's office assistance contractor's employees died this week, leaving behind a 6-month old daughter. The firm is representing her sister pro bono in her quest to obtain guardianship of her niece, and put up $10,000 in matching funds in asking for financial assistance for her. That $10,000 was matched in less than a day.

                    OK, once again Epo. Please desist from posting in this thread. This is NOT a debate thread. This is a thread for us to share things that would warm anyone's heart not further our own twisted agenda. The fact that you cannot even do this one simple thing says volumes about your character.

                      So, I'm driving through a parking lot, making my way to Frye's Electronics to buy my grandson some Christmas goodies, and a cop on a bicycle comes within earshot of me. I'm at a stop sign, so I beep once - just a short beep to get his attention - and when he looks, I yell "WE LOVE THE POPO". He actually laughs, and starts to turn away, then yells back "HEY, WAIT A SEC", and comes cycling over to my car.

                      He tells me thanks, then tries to hand ME a $25 gift card that somebody had just given HIM! He tells me he's not supposed to accept gratuities, so I show him my shield and say "me neither".

                      We both laugh, and now there are cars behind me at the stop sign, so I gotta move on. It "made the day" for BOTH of us!
                      The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                          Jorge Munoz is one of the most inspiring people you'll ever meet. A school bus driver by day and an angel by night. Every night for the past 5 years, he has gone home and cooked food for hundreds of people on his old stove. He then goes to a street corner in Queens, New York and feeds those that are hungry. He does this with his own money because "it's the right thing to do". He is a man that wants to help, and is the epitome of an everyday hero.

                          Everyday people are capable of great acts of kindness and goodness. While we 'debate' whether an uncaused existence must exist, my wife is busy sewing feminine hygiene kits for developing countries so girls can stay in schools longer. A great project
