I've been trying to find more information about them - who the members were, where they recorded their music, their albums, etc., but it seems as though there is nothing out there about them. I'd love to find out more about the group. Any help would be appreciated!

I end up having to manually power off (even doing Control/Alt/Delete and using the task bar doesn't "close" MS Publisher), and then trying again. I can go into My Documents and find an individual file, and open it ok. But if I try to go File -> New, it locks up again. Word, Excel, Outlook --- all working fine. I have done an update from MS Office Online, and everything seems to have gone through. So... I'm stuck now. Any suggestions? Anyone?

But steak... chicken... special dog food... I'm ready to listen.

As I recall from junior high science, our moon's gravitational pull is about 1/6 of ours on Earth. So... putting the two concepts together... I'm curious if humans could live on a planet that had all the necessities (oxygen, water, etc.) but had a difference gravitational pull? We would "bounce" probably more than walk... and transportation would be different... and our habits would modify... BUT... could we live with it? Thorough answers appreciated and will be considered for the ten points. And, of course, if wouldn't hurt to mark this as interesting as well (so more people might comment). Thank you!

However, I'm not able to do a lot of the stretches like other people in the classes. I can't stretch my legs out and bend over. I still do certain cool-down stretches because I simply can't reach. I know about Yoga and Pilate's, but I'm doing MY stuff 5-7 hours a week, so there isn't much time for other things (plus the potential cost).

However, I just don't want to spend $75 on a bouquet that will die. And I'm not a fan of silk arrangements either. The family won't need food... they are active in a lot of groups that have already offered to provide meals for a few weeks. There is no mention of providing a donation to a charity, so that's out. The man's hobbies included oil painting; woodworking; fishing; watching his children’s, grandchildren’s, and great-grandson’s athletic events; basketball; decorating for Christmas; and working in his yard. Any suggestions on something we could do that would be more long-lasting and memorable (for his family, not for our gift).

I may call them up, but I like Yahoo Answers, so I thought I'd give this a shot. Please respond "Male" or "Female," and how you know that to be true. And, also... what date you were there (since the voice might have changed over the years). Thanks!!!

We spend approximately $50 per kid/family, and there will be some attendees from last year. Santa doesn't want to bring the same gifts again, so he's trying to come up with some new ideas. I'd love to hear of good suggestions for these kids... this is largely what they get for Christmas. They are in attendance for the event, but Santa does hand out the presents.
