    It has to do with the genetics of barring. Males inherit two copies of the white bar/cuckoo gene, and females only one copy. This causes more white on the males, less on the females, even at day one. The effect can be best viewed from above.

    I really like my netbook. Hubby is going to try to install Linux and see if that helps.

    DH said he saw a survey asking, if you had to give up your i-pad OR get a divorce…which would it be? An overwhelming majority chose the divorce.

    Do you think he made this up?

    Who needs an iPad when you have an iPhone. I prefer the convenience of the phone! Otherwise...trust me. I would break it. No problem!

    Seriously! Give me 10 minutes!
