    For some reason, in China the numbers 3 and 8 (san ba) can be used as an insult. That is for everyday of the year except 3/8 it carries a negative tone. Just thought I'd share that with everyone.

    Happy Women's Day

    In Korea, instead of 4 (sa) they use F letter for the 4th floor button. The word "sa" sounds similar to the word death. So you are literally asking the elevator to take you to the death Also number 18 (ship pal) can be used as an insult.

    Women are cool. I dig them.

    In my language the number 6 can be used instead of sex, and nine sounds like the German word for no, so 69 means you don't want sex.

    Happy day, ladies and girls! I will seek out my most feminine pipe shape and smoke a few bowls in salute.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I guess for me everyday is Women's day. My wife keeps me company and smokes a pipe herself. Here she is at the neighbors relaxing around a bonfire. Cheers to all the ladies who support pipe smoking regardless it they smoke or not.

    My wife thinks every day should be Women's Day and I've been trying to measure up to that standard for the last 45 years. Unfortunately without a great deal of success!

    Some have chosen to defile this day with protests, my girlfriend is in the kitchen making super

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Personally, I can do without the protests, marches and all the women who deliberately took off work today to prove a point. What point? I'm not sure they know. Just more of the usual PC insanity these days. Equal pay? Baloney. Equal pay is a federal law. Just you go and try to violate it. You get paid according to your time served (seniority) and position in the company, not your sex. A lot of people lost a day's work today because those missing people from their jobs shut some things down and affected a lot of innocent people.

    Same goes for when the NFL all wear those pink garments in the Fall--- I have nothing for or against women, they fought for equality long ago and that is how I see them-- as equals. When they put forth an International Man's Day or Prostrate Cancer Awareness Month and all kinds of guys take off work in protest matching in the streets and shut things down, and women all wear blue stuff to work in honor of the guys, then we will be getting somewhere finally.

    I mean, what is good for the goose should be good for the gander, right?

    Women have it pretty OK; just watch a TV show, the father always seems to come behind the mother, the kids, the dog and the goldfish in most shows. It will take all of another 15 minutes before another guy posts here how he has to smoke out in the garage because his wife won't even let him in the house. For once I'd just like equality to really mean equality and leave all this PC feel-good nonsense where it belongs. It has been a long time since suffrage; can we all just move on now with important matters and start really being equals?

    Brad! you kill me but Tom T. Hall said it best

    Put another log on the fire
    Cook me up some bacon & some beans
    And go out to the car & change the tire
    Wash my socks and sew my old blue jeans
    Come on baby you can fill my pipe & then go fetch my slippers
    And boil me up another pot of tea
    Then put another log on the fire babe

    And come & tell me why you're leaving me

    Now don't I let you wash the car on Sunday
    And don't I warn you when you're gettin fat
    Ain't I a gonna take you fishin' with me someday
    Well a man can't love a woman more than that
    And ain't I always nice to your kid sister
    Don't I take her driving every night
    So sit here at my feet cause I like you when you're sweet
    And you know it ain't feminine to fight

    So put another log on the fire
    Cook me up some bacon & some beans
    Go out to to the car & lift it up & change the tire
    Wash my socks & sew my old blue jeans
    Come on baby you can fill my pipe & then go fetch my slippers
    And boil me up another pot of tea
    Then put another log on the fire babe
    And come & tell me why you're leaving me

    I just heard Put Another Log on the fire on XM radio this afternoon, someone has a good sense of humour (that version by Tompall Glaser).

    Great. Another Hallmark card to buy.

    If you cherish her for the other 364 days, Women's Day isn't important because her life is Women's Day.

    Try as today's observers do, they simply cannot separate it from its origins.

    Both wives (I was a widower) and my younger sister have had trials and tribulations in their careers and stood up for themselves in commendable ways. Same credentials as men, most often not offered the full-time job, the tenure, the pay raise, the comparable salary. I mostly don't rant about it because it seems to diminish the amazing things they have done, but when I get going, I go on. I'd be hugely proud of any one of those three careers, if it were mine. Possibly insufferable.

    Which origins?

    Right not to be raped on a date, or as a weapon of war?
    Right to own land?
    Right to vote?
    Right to equal pay for equal work?
    Right not to have their crotch grabbed by some small-dick guy?
