No Use Crying Over Spilled - Pearls?

To Those Who Celebrate I Wish You A Very Happy Mother's Day! "Oops, I'm Sorry, Mommy..." My mom was one of those ladies who didn't care too much for jewelry.

The Bad Haircut Club

"Don't Chop Them Locks" Most people like to keep their hair nicely trimmed. They also enjoy the experience of a shampoo and styling. Me, not so much. Ever had a "BAD" haircut? If there was a club for bad haircuts, I would probably be a star member. Seems like I've had more than my share of them. It... Sign in to see full entry.

Poetry in Pompeii?
