1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Good thing my mom bought the "man in the moon" one for my niece instead.

    You give baby a sterling rattle because sterling is a natural antiseptic.

    I'm sure that's why people give their babies $195 sterling rattles.

    It's certainly one reason.

    Or at least one way to justify it.

    It could also be that rattles are the kind of thing that corny ass parents keep around.. my mom may still have one of mine - I'm 25. [​IMG]

    I'm 25 too and I don't think I even had a rattle. Maybe that's why I resent the $195 rattle :shrug: When I have a kid I'm going to get him a plastic rattle that says "my kid can beat up kids with sterling rattles".

    Sterling cane heads can kill.

    No wonder you'd be loth to pay $195 for a sterling rattle.

    My baby will hire your baby to do his dirty work, then write off the expense as a tax dodge. Then he'll use the savings to buy a sterling rattle.

    My baby will take the money he earned from your baby (and similarly situated babies) and buy the company that makes the sterling baby rattles so that he can take in all the suckers and be "legit" at the same time. He will run said company from the back room of a strip club on Route 4.

    My baby would use all of your respective $195 sterlin baby rattles to seduce your wives

    I guess I'm glad I sprung for the Pratesi bear instead.

    My oldest son received the "man in the moon" one as well. This made me curious, so I just looked at the Tiffany website. I really had no idea it was so expensive.

    I should have mentioned that rattles are for teething, and the natural antiseptic quality of the sterling helps sooth the process.

    I hope your son put some good bite marks in his rattle. Patina makes them more precious, at least as mementos.
