"One of my favorites is Blue Bloods on CBS. It is about a family of cops who are tough, nose to the grindstone. The topics are real day to day stuff, and what's more, it has 80s tough guy Tom Selleck playing Dad/Commissioner of…"
"My thanks to all of you. I think all I've read touches upon what Regular Joe said, change "procreation" to "parenting". Parenting, raising children to be citizens of this world, doesn't necessarily require giving birth…"
However, If you still feel that absolute need to work with some form of "procreation" why not start coaching little leagues? I know that almost every little league, be it football, baseball, basketball, rugby, golf, tennis,…"

"Replace "procreate" with "parent" (as verb rather than a noun) and the 3 Ps still stand for people who are unable to procreate but wind up adopting, being foster parents, being a de factor surrogate parent in various forms,…"

"Some couples can't have kids, simple fact of life. Doesn't make either of you lesser human beings IMO.
Some couples can knock out kids by the dozen and they are shitty, worthless parents, whacking out a few small people isn't…"
Brett,With regards to Provide, Protect, and Procreate, a tough question. What about those of us, after many years of trying, cannot have children.

As to being a liar. Technically you are one, because of an honest mistake. It…"
"Just a few thoughts.
Why lie at all ? Your deadlines are not your suppliers concern. Every good plan has cushion and contingency.
I.e. your project deadline is july 31st. You need ten thousand widgets in your warehouse by july 15th in order…"
"One thing I noticed about the entire debacle.
In March, 2016, then Mr. Trump released a seven point healthcare plan outline that he wanted Congress to adopt. As far as I can tell, the only parts of his proposals that showed up in either the House or…"
"Cool your jets. This hill ain't worth dying on. Let it slide, but make damn sure your emails actually get sent. (I had a similar 'went to draft' email situation when I went to Windows 10. A number, but not all,…"
