    Does anyone use 'Bing"?

    When I downloaded Explorer 8, Bing was offered as an option but I did'nt take it. I like IE 8, turns pages much quicker.

    Michael Jackson Depreciation thread

    I agree that musicians and other artists do give large amounts of money to charity and not always publically. There is no way to know how much money Jackson gave away. He probably did quite a bit. The comment reminded me of how easy it is to judge people on appearances, focusing on the negative and ignoring the positive contributions they have made. I agree with Andy in that looking back on a person's life we should talk about their altruism, benevolence, ect. Well put, Ev "If you're measured by your deeds, be measured by all your deeds equally"

    Michael Jackson Depreciation thread

    I liked this comment: If we're going to judge someone, forget popularity and glitter, ask; Did they make the world better? Did they genuinely improve another person? Did they perform any genuinely altruistic benevolent act? Did they accumulate wealth and fame for the benefit of others? If the answer to any of the above is yes, then they have done something worth mentioning. Otherwise stop bothering me about them. Andy Wilcock, Tunbridge Wells

    Led Zeppelin, as a Backing Band?

    I have the Niki Hoeky album. Its not bad. I like to play it when people drop in and the beer is flowing. I've been looking for Three Week Hero at my favorite flea market. Lot of good buys there. I just don't have the hours to spend looking through hundreds of albums, as much I would enjoy it.

    Frank McCourt Dies

    Angela's Ashes is the only book that I can remember making me cry. I believe that Frank, the twins and their little sister are together again, dancing in the sunlight with no worries.

    Okay, now I get it. The chihuahua was speared in London, KY and Plant was in London, England. Threw me for a loop. I watched the video and thought these people sound like they're from Kentucky. I'm happy to hear the chihuahua is going to be okay; poor little guy. Glad Mr. Plant is okay too. I read somewhere that his other accident was in July also. I don't know which year though.

    What Made You Un-Happy Today ?

    When someone decides to self-destruct, there is nothing you can do about it. They have to save themselves. I know it sounds harsh but the only thing you can do is save yourself. Don't get sucked into the abyss with them. If this person does decide to change then it is imperative that you be there but not until they do.

    What Are You Reading?

    Sounds like a good read. I have the book, Che Guevara : A Revolutionary Life by John Lee Anderson. A detailed account of Guevara's life (approx. 800 pages). I think Anderson did a good job covering Guevara's character and life. I was fascinated.

    Your morning rituals...

    Your morning rituals...

    One my favorites too. Recently, I was sitting in cafe at 2AM, talking to a friend and that song came on the jukebox. We stopped talking and just sat and listened. One of those cool, indescribable moments out of time.

    What did you eat?

    Awful meatloaf because I made it good mashed taters, they came out of a box I'm not a cook. I prefer restaurants or putting something in the microwave. Happy Birthday Evster! Sounds like your off to a good start with the celebrating.

    Poison At The Tony Awards

    My first thought when I watched that video was "OUCH!" Yes, Bret is sleazy but he doesn't try to hide it. Its all cool as long as your not dating him. He certainly didnt deserve to be bashed in the face like that.
  24. I lived in Buncombe county in the 1990's. My children went to school at Glen Arden which at that time was the best school in the county. I remember the problems with the schools. It was really bad. A lot of the problems had to do with funding. The parents of the Glen Arden students were a great bunch. They spent a lot time and money to make it a better school and it paid off. GA had the highest grades and the least amount state and local funding. I love Buncombe county but I met some of the oddest people and saw some crazy stuff that makes you go I've lived in the North and the South and traveled the U.S. but Buncombe has the wackiest people.
