For no reason I thought I’d write a paper
on “the election of 1844 and its impact on the concept
of manifest destiny.” I’m thinking I will make 4-6
pages, and include at least 5 quotations. Also footnotes. So
I was wondering if you could give me a quotation on that subject.
Make it as long as possible. I’m sort of in a hurry to
complete this paper so could I have your quote by Friday?

Because of our western heritage here in Durango
and all the horses in the area, I had an idea. What if we changed
the name of Main Avenue to MANE Avenue (as in a horse’s

Is it OK to take photos at a funeral? And what’s
the deal with post-funeral activities? I have not been to
a funeral in a while, but after the last one I went to we
went back to my aunt’s house, where everyone pretty

as well please.
Is that you lassy? Why you should know better than to mock
yer Irish heritage in such a manner. Why we ought to be
