Dec 17th 2010 8:26PM What a wonderful story. This reminds me of my own grandmother who passed away a few years ago at the age of 96. With 11 children and countless grandchildren and great grandchildren she she didn't have a lot of money to spend but two cherished gifts that I remember is an afghan that she gave me as well as one she made for my son at my baby shower. The afghan she gave to me is unique with mismatched yarn, due to her practical way of not letting anything go to waste. Not only do I have a beautiful afghan to remember my grandmother by but so does my son. 8 Years later all those lovely baby shower gifts have been outgrown and given away or packed away but my son will always have the beautiful afghan made by his great grandmother.

I also wish that McDonalds would offer onion rings like BK does.
Oct 15th 2010 6:30PM My family actually does this for baby showers and bridal showers. However, we put a spin on it by having the guests address the envelopes then having the guest of honor draw one of the envelopes and the winner gets a door prize such as a nice candle or a box of chocolates.
Tacky or not I think it's fun for the guests :-).
Jan 15th 2010 10:24AM As someone who was given what I consider an old fashioned name I have to agree that Agnes would not be my choice. It must really be a generational thing because I share my name with an Aunt and she loves it. I on the other hand have always hated my name, and always associated it with being old since I never knew anyone my age or younger with my name.
Some names such as Jacob, Michael and Emily stand the test of time and never lose popularity. Parents may want their children to stand out by picking an untraditional or old fashioned name that few in their generation have but for a child it often makes them feel different or isolated. I am in my 40s now and am still uncomfortable with my name.
