I just find it sort of weird and narcissistic.A few Christmases ago, my sister took my Mom's recipe book, transcribed it in MS Word and printed copies for everyone in the family. My Aunt's lemon bars recipe is not shared outside the family. I honor that.
That's despicable.JohnInCarolina said:I wonder if Trump asked Petraeus today what really happened on 9/11. Or if he had heard that all of the Sandy Hook kids were just child actors.
