Yuck.

On top of hating the sentiment, I can't stand the name. I read "Sardo" and think "Lardo". Who wants to smear lard on themselves?

Beth

I think the sentiment is beautiful and echos the truest form of love and committment that husbands and wives were meant to have for each other..If more wives were this committed to their husbands there would be many more happy homes.

Had a big teenage (girl) crush on Veronica Hamel when she was in Hill St Blues. Then, in around 1983, I watched her (and only watched because of her) in some godawful Beyond the Valley of The Dolls TVM nonsense. She played a gay model in Paris who chatted up the blonde bint-star whilst they were sitting outside in one of those stereotypical Montmartre street cafes. I remember how, in reply to the positive response she getting to her come-on hints, she ran her fingers up and down the stem of a claret glass whilst smiling seductively at her conquest - and echoed " Oh yes...why not?!"

Ooh, Got to take a shower. BRB.

Bela

You just keep telling yourself that, Beth. BTW, how's the weather there in Stepford?

Interesting post and I really like your take on the issue. I now have a clear idea on what this matter is all about. Thank you so much.

Janne Marrie, don't you think men have to be just as committed if a marriage is to be a success?

Veronica Hamel..ahhhh!! who cares what shes selling? I'd smear it all over myself "Sardo" Lardo, or play doe. If I thought it would lead me home to her at the
end of the day. I would be in line for my jar! Hell, give me a vat!!!
