What Gender is a Musical Instrument?   21/7/2007

Yesterday, I heard a musician referring to her piano as "she". "She is a sultry, sexy woman". Asked about compositions - "Really, what happens is she plays me."

DESIGNING MULTI-SENIOR HOME   24/12/2004

The recent article about whether seniors could live together to pool expenses, etc. got me to thinking about what could be the building of the future! How about if we design a home for single seniors on the idea of the assisted living ones. I am envisioning a home which would house up to 12 men and 12 women. Each would have a large room which could be divided by a sliding accordian ...

laws of work   28/10/2004

Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted. It doesn't matter what you do, it only matters what you say you've done and what you're going to do. After any salary raise, you will have less money at the end of the month than you did before. A pat on the back is only a few centimeters away from a kick in the ass. The more crap that you put up with, the ...

reply 2 Men Scram   12/10/2004

Ever notice how some single men, divorced, widowers, etc tend to have meal hours like regular people? Wow, how strange. I get home I put the spuds and vegies on to cook, maybe a small pot roast, heck I may even invite friends over for a meal. Should I sit and watch the pots boil or could I maybe go on line and say hi to some friends while I wait the 35 to 40 min cooking time (depends what I ...

My profile says 'no married'   2/9/2004

I just read the article by Fushimifox, about what is this site about. This person states in that article that you can't state in your profile you want no marrieds. My profile says that. I also state I don't want anyone who is already committed, or young enough that I could have given birth to him. I have no idea why they would allow a standard member to state that and not a silver ...

I Don't See the Problem   5/6/2004

I have read soooo many articles and responses about wondering why the guys are on here, because they don't contact anyone or don't respond to a contact. I have not found that to be the case very often. I think the guys are looking just as much as the women. I have been contacted and have responded to some and have also gotten responses back to contacts that I made. Maybe it's what you are ...

Is it the Women against the Men?   5/6/2004

I sometimes just browse the articles and it seems that there is a division between the sexes in the comments. Maybe I am not seeing everything, but is sounds like there is some male bashing going on because they aren't knocking on your doors daily. There's a lot to be said for taking your time and I think the men want that as much as the women, maybe even more. I think men are more ...
