I'm about to issue a Silver Alert,  Thor didn't even find a little time for us over the weekend.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

CryYa got to remember he's OLD.
Could be dead - yea, that sounds about right -ya never know.
He lives a life of danger in a dangerous area, all those hefty Italian boyos hangin' around and him probably lookin' a little more old & Irish. They probably gave him some 'cement shoes' and tossed him into one of those plastic kiddy pools filled with 1 foot of water, where he drowned.

I think Thor's wicked brother won't let him use the computer very often and won't let him set up his own.

Plus, I think he makes Thor do all the housework like the laundry the dishes and scrubbing floors...



Though I know he dreams of being free....



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Naah...I just don't feel like being on the computer as much as I used to.  20 minutes a day at the most.  Maybe twice that on weekends.

I know - I guess what I heard is true - hard to type on your knees while getting that tub scrubbed, too. Do you wear one of those revealing 'French Maid' outfits? No pictures, please.

That, plus he has to wait until his mean old big brother goes in the bathroom to spend twenty minutes on the toilet, to sneak into his room and use his computer on the sly.

As soon as he hears the sound of the toilet paper roll spinning on the dispenser, he knows it's time to start logging off and return to the never ending drudgery of his household chores.

Poor ol fella....

Cherry Hill principal apologizes for 'insensitive' prom tickets
 
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The principal of Cherry Hill High School East has issued an apology after some words on the school’s senior prom tickets drew criticism.
 
The tickets told students to “party like it’s 1776,” because the dance is being held at the National Constitution Center.
 
“It was insensitive and irresponsible not to appreciate that not all communities can celebrate what life was like in 1776. I especially apologize to our African American students, whom I have let down by not initially recognizing the inappropriateness of this wording,” principal Dennis Perry explained in a letter to the community.

I wonder if any black students said they were offended. I've grown tired of the trend concerning white people being offended for minority people who have not indicated they themselves were offended. I guess they will have to rename Constitutional Hall or tear it down.

Spineless, gutless wimps like the school principal need to stop apologizing for everything and eventually this kind of thing will cease.

When you encourage people to act a certain way by giving in to them and giving them what they want, they'll just keep on doing it and continue to push it as far as they can push it.

All the principal had to say was "We meant no offense by it".

End of discussion.

Yeah, being offended on behalf of others always seems so patronizing, especially when the people they're offended on behalf of, are fully capable of being offended on their own.

Not sure that would satisfy the people who are pretending to be offended.  They require something to happen---some policy change, someone getting fired, some statue removed.
 
This is one situation that begs for the "Oh, fer cryin' out loud!" response.
