OB156,

I see you have a GREAT place to spend that child support cash.

I'm looking for a Carver Tubed CD player

Get in line Brian, I called dibs over a year ago on one!

YES, but they are for resale.....I don't think that technically qualifies......

What say you, OCCD Judges?!?

The great thing about getting older is that more and more women look attractive to you. The base age of around 16 doesn't change, but the other end continues to expand at about ½ your rate of ageing starting at the age of 20. So, if you're 37 now, women between 16 and about 28 should look good to you. For me at 63, women from 16 to around 42 look good. That's my algorithm, and I'm sticking to it.
It should sound like it isn't there!
