As I read many of these boards, I get discouraged at times by what seems to be a lack of willingness for many to just think for themselves. To heck with what "everybody thinks" or what "everybody else says"! (Many on here DO obviously say that, for which I am grateful.) Even if I disagree, so what?

As long as we don't harm anyone else, why not just plain do as we wish? May not be as "popular", but does that matter? If so, why?

Think about it. Sure, listen to others, and maybe learn from them, but think for yourselves.

By now, most of us have had to swim upstream for many years, so let's keep on doing that. Thank God, my wife feels as I do, so we manage to keep smiling as we do our own thing.

My two cents.
