Re: DeMoine info?

I don't think self-sufficiency belongs to an era.  I think it's just plain
common sense.
However, not all individuals have a common sense in common.
As to: "Want to eat??? Help with dinner."
I recall asking my husband to help and his reply was along the lines of, "If
you don't want to cook, that's fine by me, I can eat out.  See ya."

BTW, I even open doors for men.
