    I cut mine along the dotted line at the top like I've always done. Is this wrong? If so,sorry.

    I,too retired from one of the local chemical plants at 58. That was in 2003. I've never regretted it. My pension plus our ombined Social Security checks allow us to live pretty much ike we did pre-retirement. My investment account earns enough yearly to give us a cushion for emergencies and travel.
    I'm SOOOOO glad you didn't buy the big RV and go out on the highways and scare me!LOL I never could understand guys who never drove anything larger than a sedan assuming that magically they will be able to handle one of those things at retirement.

    Having been a practicing,12 years Catholic school-attending memeber of the club in Baton Rouge I finally decided not to renew my membership!
    BUT I consider myself a Cultural Catholic. As I've stated before here,if you don't want to follow the rules,don't join the club of get out and find one you like. There is a vast difference between "religion" and "organized religion".
    I think I'm off topic. Bye

    Tophat,
    I'm sorry BUT WPT is a known Catholic. He uses Catholic web sites for most of his research. Him and a few other local Catholics (MAW and SV)are the spokespersons for the anti-artificial contraceptive and anti-abortion viewpoint. People who read the LTTE have his letters as the only information about this issue.

    EA,
    Vasectomies and tubal ligations are really effective,too. I know,I had a V done in 1970. It dependes on how much of the vas the doc removes that counts. BUT WPT has a comeback for that,too. He has data and horror stories(from catholic-based webbies I guess) about the dangers of that,too. His anti-birth control LTTE are like the time change. They come around a couple of times a year whether you want them or not.

    Lots of different stories about the origins of Gumbo YaYa. Some say that Paul Prudhomme invented it when he was at Commander's Palace. It is also said that his recipe for Chicken and Andouille Smoked Sausage Gumbo on pgs 202-203 in his seminal cookbook Louisiana Kitchen is the same recipe but he never copyrighted the name. The book is from 1984 so it may be hard to find.
