Independent behavior, which we will be discussing next, may include sporting events you attend, your choice of church, or your personal exercise program.

Picking up donuts on your way to work, because it's scheduled and requires thought to complete, falls under IBs, IMHO.

<if we wish to continue this discussion maybe we should start a new thread?>

I could just link you to the two threads where it was already thoroughly discussed if you'd like. smile

I, too, am ready to move this thread back on topic.

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.
