I learned that, in Texas, if a spouse enters a marriage with home owned free and clear (separate property), the married couple live in that house as their homestead, and the spouse who owned the home dies with a will specifically disinheriting the other spouse and leaving the entire estate to a child, the disinherited spouse cannot be forced out of the house, and can live there until he or she dies (a life estate) even though the child owns the house.

If it looks like a misogynist, walks like a misogynist, and talks like a misogynist, then it probably is a misogynist.

Well, yesterday I finally found a pair of boots that I like. This morning I did my usual 4km walk to work in them. Big fucking mistake. :cry:

I had to look it up. It makes sense, since you jot something down in a "NOTEBOOK."
