  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Westcliff area Discuss guideline

  1. changing names?

    has anyone here ever changed their legal name? i'm in the process of doing so, and it's pretty ridiculous. california law recognizes "common usage" as a legal way to change your name. i've used paul theodoropoulos as my name for at least forty years - but because that's different from my birth...

  13. The Women of Shakespeare

    This was the title of a thesis paper that I wrote in Gr 11 English Literature.
