Do I just ignore them or what?

My boyfriend and I have been looking for a house for about 2 years. We just signed the closing papers on this really nice ranch house in a Village next to Toledo. It has some of the highest rated schools in ohio thats why we picked it because of our son

I told my friends where we are moving to and have gotten the same reaction out of all of them. You are moving where? Thats a rich town. You guys are not gonna fit in over there.

Yes there are million dollar houses there but so what. We make enough money to pay the bills and taxes why shouldn't we have a nice house.

I'm trying not to stress about it. I dont think I'm going to change just because I move to a better town.

At the risk of sounding really uncultured...

I saw a quote repeatedly appearing on my Facebook newsfeed: "volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote everyday about the kind of community you want to live in." - Marjorie Moore.

I got really interested and Googled for Marjorie Moore but I only found people with the same name and links to their Facebook, Linkedin or whatever social media accounts. When I typed in volunteering as well as her name, I saw that same quote like everywhere - the most significant finds are linked to the Rock the Vote campaign.

But who is Marjorie Moore? What does she do? Is she an author? A speaker? A famous figure in the USA (I'm not from the US)? Where can I find out more about this person??


ETA: someone found this article for me but wasn't sure if it's the same person: http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2007-11-18/news/lpeople18_1_moore-works-leesburg-dupuytren-contracture
It's about this 81 year old volunteer from Iowa.

Anyone have experience with putting their own CBR (captive ball ring) in a piercing and can give me some tips? I have been trying to put one in my rook for about 15 minutes and cannot get the stupid ball in the ring. My fingers keep sweating but I don't have baby powder or anything to help me grip the ball. I go through this every time I change my jewelry (have had this piercing for about 3 years) and I'm sick of always having to take so long to get the ball in. Any tips?

DK/DC If you have piercings, which is your favorite one? If not, if you HAD to get a piercing where would you get it?

TQC, how do you feel about beer? Do you like it? Love it? Hate it? It's just meh?

What about fruity beer, like lambic framboise?
Wheat beer?
Doppelbock?
Barrel-aged?
