Wow we are! That would be pretty cool to hit 1,000 exactly six months after this thread started. No record by any means but cool none the same.

Sabrina gave Samantha as many dollars as Samantha started out with. Samantha then gave Sabrina back as much as Sabrina had left. Sabrina then gave Samantha as back as many dollars as Samantha had left, which left Sabrina broke and gave Samantha a total of $80.00. How much did Sabrina and Samantha have at the beginning of their exchange?

...Just to get to that 1000 gem....

Working backwards...
Sabrina/Samantha
00 / 80
40 / 40
20 / 60
50 / 30

Sabrina started out with 50, Samantha with 30.

First think of the person who lives in disguise,
Who deals in secrets and tell naught but lies.
Next tell me what's always the last thing to mend,
The middle of middle and end of the end?
And finally give me the sound often heard,
During the search for a hard-to-find word.
Now string them together, and answer me this,
Which creature would you be unwilling to kiss?

It's little miss muffets one and only fear
When a female's around a screams what you'll hear
my daughter sees one and says to hide her
the answer to your riddle is clearly spider

I have one, you have one.
If you remove the first letter, a bit remains.
If you remove the second, bit still remains.
After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but it remains.
It dies hard!

While daydreaming about eating delicious rabbit
I briefly thought about an old habit.
