I will always remember the Tim I met back in the 80s at a family wedding and the fun we had with a deck of cards that afternoon. I remember watching him handling a deck of cards.

So the "Grammar Supervisor" didn't know what he was talking about? The Cafe site has been hacked. Do not give your password on the new pop-up. And I just now got an email from a "Grammar Host" telling me I needed to change my password. Why did they not know what was going on???
