True Story: My Daughter was Lured with a Text Message!!!!! - 11/27/10 03:59 PM
Thanks to Sarah Moore for posting this blog re a true experience her daughter had re texting.

First it was get rid of the perverbial paper bag as it was decimating the forests, etc. So, the plastic bag came along and we had our choice -- paper or plastic. That seemed to work for years.

Okay, now (12 comments)
