All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

    I love 3 and 9. But I know a lot of women who also include their birthday along with the anniversary as equally important.

    In fact there are women out there who believe in celebrating a birthday WEEK not just a day.

    This joke has a lot of truth in it Res.

  2. I thought the birthday was MORE important.

  3. In fact there are women out there who believe in celebrating a birthday WEEK not just a day.

    Also known as Holy Week.

    It is Res, it is just that they are such spectacular little precious snowflakes that their special brand of fabulous can't be confined to just 1 day a year.

    Thus the good Rabbi B is correct. That week is indeed known as Holy Week.
