How true about the credit card bills. They're always slightly shocking, even if they total isn't that high, more of a "why did I put this on my credit card?"

You do attend church? Fascinating. Wouldn't have taken you for a church-goer.

Bill,

I'm a Unitarian Universalist. On the board of trustees of the congregation, in fact.

It's kind of like Alice's Restaurant:

You can be anything you want there.

Cheers,
