What made me pissed me off?
A Tea party Repub saying "Principles are not negotiable." When what he meant was, theirs have to be but ours aren't.
Aren't you in the wrong thread?

Gassing up the car this am at Kroger after dropping DH off for work. The pump asked if I wanted to use my 30 cents off per gallon discount and I said, but of course- 3.29 per gallon. WOO HOO!

I'm saving my K discount for a big fill-up soon. I don't drive my car very much so I don't fill up often, but when I do I love using that discount.

I drive anywhere from 300-550 miles a week so I usually fill up 1 1/2 times a week-every little bit helps, even for my little Corolla.

Cut him some slack. He's old and grumpy. Hating Republicans is what makes him smile.

My sister telling me that she would send a dvd that some local people made of the area where we grew up, and has some people on it that we knew when we were kids. It will be in Brit format, so I know it won't play on our dvd player here, but will it play on our computer? Sorry, I'm not tech savvy.

It will play on your computer but be aware that you only get to change the region on a DVD-ROM drive a few times before it becomes locked. If you never use your computer to play DVDs it won't be a problem, but it's worth noting.

We got a multi-regional DVD player on Amazon.com....it's worth it. It was $60 or $70.

It's not hot at the moment. That's about it though.

Right, back to the 'pissed you off' thread. Byeeee
