Is it called "mass" in a Protestant church? I thought that was a Catholic word.

"There's also the more basic items . . ." should be "There're are also the more basic items . . ." Since the subject (items) is plural, you need a plural verb (are, not is). This is taught in early elementary school grammar, but it's never too late to learn it.

"There's also the more basic items . . . " should be "There're also the more basic items. . ." Since the subject (items) is plural, the sentence needs a plural verb (are, not is).

Here is my name submission: "Big Old Waste of Money and Time"

Should just put that right above the front doors.

When I was a teen the teen center was McDonalds, or Safeway, or a Paper Route. It was called a summer job.

And if I wasn't working I didn't need a "center" to keep me out of trouble. My parents raised me right and kept myself out of trouble.

Just call it "Intendo and Sega XBox Funporium" or whatever these kids are into these days.

Get off my lawn.
