Sounds like you'll have a fine future, chemical engineering, hmmm impressive, maybe you'll create a way to improve mankind by devloping something beneficial in the realms of medicine, energy, agricultural, ecological or a comination of them after all, "better living through chemistry" is an old logo

My family is doing well as am I and my wife, on the 14th we'll clebrate our 38th anniversary, married right out of college and now in our 62nd year of life, we feell better than ever, thank you Cialis : ) see what I mean by better living through chemicals?

The initial dream of providing people with social, governmental, and religious freedom? Yes.

The promise to withhold to the rules of the constitution? Absolutely not.

I sometimes worry that the U.S. is becoming a nation of bread and circuses, with the bread replaced by McDonald's and the circuses by professional sports.

I also worry that U.S. political elections are increasingly staged plays, but not so far as that the outcome of the 2020 presidential election is nearly decided already :-)

The US has not stayed true nor strayed away because from day 1 back in 1776, it has never acted out its intentions and founding philosphies

Would you risk your own ass to correct it if it had? Besides...it was never actually on point to begin with. It's a work in progress....sometimes.

HA! Good on ya for keeping things going for so long (not just in the bedroom). An early congratulations for your 38th anniversary in case i'm not poking around this site next week. Glad to hear you're doing well.

On another note, i've got a debate idea for us so check your inbox and let me know what you think. Its something we talked about a few years ago.
