“My mother agreed with old Anna 100%, and so do I. It's one of the ones I call a "Hallmark Holiday" - one on which dim people buy lame cards and useless crap for people they often don't even like very much. LOL”

“I'll hope you have some nice way to celebrate holidays and birthdays with your loved ones. Sometimes a store bought card puts our feelings into words we don't have the talent to write.”

“I always liked the homemade cards that my 3 sons would give me. Now, I'm happy if I get a call on the day. They don't buy cards and I don't expect them. If they found a really funny one, that would be fine. I live a long distance away, so they don't take me out for dinner. My now husband and I are going on a nice hike.”

“I grew up in a family that didn't have much use for mushy letters. After my parents both died, I never found one single love letter or poem from either of my parents (other than when my father was drafted into the U.S. Army and sent off to Germany in the early 1950s.
Considering that bad handwriting runs in my family (my son can't read about 50% of what he writes), I would rather have a funny card than something mushy and illegible.”

“To me, ALL holidays are like that except for Thanksgiving. Just get together with family and/or friends and eat and drink.”
“Laughing. Who are the 'stars' ?? With the exception of Valerie Harper, I don't recognize a single name!”

“You've never seen The King of Queens? - Leah Remini starred with Kevin James. Or any of the Blue Collar comedies? - Bill Engvall.
Of course, the two of them, plus Bill Nye and Valerie Harper, both already eliminated, as well as Nicole, formerly known as Snooki, (not a fan) are the only celebrities I know anything about myself. The only thing I know of Jack Osborne is he is Ozzie and Sharon's son and has MS.”

“Bill Nye the Science Guy! :) i definately remember him”
“Their worst idea was the pre funding the employees health costs and overpaying the pensions by billions of dollars. For their efforts the have a good portion of their employees who work one notch above sleep level.
I never understood the idea of paying for a P.O. box where you pick up your own mail but they deliver to your door for no extra charge. Now they essentially want to give us all PO boxes or centralized group boxes.”

“Why is it a bad idea? I used to live in a 26 story condo, you think the mail carrier delivered everyone's mail right to their door? Of course not, he put them all in people's very own mail boxes on the ground floor and people had to pick it up themselves :)
I used to live in a house in a neighborhood where there was one central location where everyone's "mailbox" was. People had to walk over there to get their mail. Believe me, no one was injured because of this :)”
