These should be sayings and quips that we have heard or used in our past. Not some that we saw printed elsewhere.

We have come up with over 700 so far but they seem to keep coming.  If anyone wants a full list just ask and get your email address to me (you can email it so that you don't have to post it here).

This is a continuation of the list from our old lost discussion   :'(

Hi Rammel
Good to see sayings and quips back.

Thank you

Hi Rammel
Run of the Mill

Something that is routine or is expected to happen.

The saying was they think used in the mills, perhaps cotton mills in the UK.

But over time used outside of work.

702 - Run of the mill.

First one on the "new board".

Hi Rammel
As The Saying Goes

To say something and bring attention to what you are saying, like if you have had a busy day and are really tired.

Like:
I am, as the saying goes, burned out!

706 - As The Saying Goes

    Marginal, but added. (IMHO)

Hi Rammel
Make Ends Meet.

To live within your income.

So if you have a budget, you live within that and if you are running short of cash or funds you do with what you have. 

Meet, we also know means tally, which means to count something.  Tally or count your cash or funds to make your budget last.  The could be the end of the week or the year.  Usually a period for your budget, a weekly budget or yearly budget.

It might be a saying more in use in the UK.

Good morning....

I didn't know about this discussion until JeanneP and Bubble mentioned it this morning on Norm's site. 

I really enjoyed reading today's entries as I grew up with all of them and it's like stepping back into the past :).
