Murf, you are correct. Leg of lamb is the most traditional Easter dinner, but I don't like lamb at all, nor do any of my brothers and sisters. Ham has allways been our main family Easter traditional dinner, any way. Your egg casserol sounds really good, too, but I love to eat the easter eggs with just a little salt, or make deviled eggs. My mom had a wonderful recipe, which my younger sister knows quite well. I will be preparing a Krakaus Polish Ham for Easter to bring to my brothers house for dinner this Sunday. My younger sister will be preparing deviled eggs and candied sweet potatos, my nice will be making potator au gratin made from scratch, not from a mix, and my sister in-law is bringing an assortment of desert items.
iHaunt, I've been in many an emergency. If I had a nickle for every time one of the old beaers I drove back when I was a pup brokd down way out int he middle of no where, and I had to hike miles to find a phone, I would be a wealthy man. Everyone gives me the same argument. Get a cell phone in case of an emergency. My brothers and sisters, my niees and nephews, my co workers, you name it. The simple truth is, there are very, VERY few times when I don't have to put up with a ringing telephone interupting my life. At home it's sales people, or family & friends. I don't mind hearing from family and friends, but whenI'm in the middle of eating my dinner or watching a favorite tv show, I would just assume not have to answer the phone. Some times I won't een pick it up. But often, if there's an emergency cituation, I don't have a choice. At work, it's even worse. I can be in the middle of a major project, and ny one of 5 lines can start ringing off the wall, and it may be half an hour before I can get back to it. The bottom line is, there are only two, (2) times when I don't have to put up with phones ringing. When I'm in my car, or when I'm on my motorcycle. I hav formerly declared, and will renew that declaration, that the time I spend in my car or on my bike, to be ONLY MINE, EXCLUSIVELY MINE, AND NOBODY ELSES TIME BUT MINE. And I also don't want to PAY THE BILL for a cell phone.
So if cell phones are your thing, that's cool. In fact, if I had a daughter, I would probably have one, and get her one to keep in touch, but since I'm a happy bachelor, and have no major comittments, It hink my regular land line will serve my purpose just fine.
Just one more note to those of you who do own cell phones. PLEASE, IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS DECEN THOLY, shut them off when you go to the movies, or in church.
