    It's so inevitable that in the future we'll look back and see how primitive oil was and how stubborn man was to transform into a cleaner, quieter, lighter stepping being. Either that or we'll ruin our water, air and land by overproducing, overpopulating and overconsuming. Then we'll really be up shitcreek, literally.

  2. I haven't been keeping up with the NBA much since the old celtics lakers rivalry, until recently when we aquired the hornets from carolina.

    As then I will now pull for the celtics to win. :D

  3. R.I.P. Hopp

    I don't know the history of his cancer diagnosis but I'm curious as to weather or not his heavy alcohol and drug use may have masked his symptoms where they didn't catch it until it had progressed far along.

    They annouced the diagnosis in October of 09 so the cancer must have been in the later stages.

    I would guess age would have also played a roll, either way the treatments are no pic-nic either.

  4. Thank you all for your well wishes, I will be recieving my care from what is considered to be one of the top treatment centers in the country and I already know most of the staff there.

    A great group of doctors, nurses and support staff. :)

  5. What's the latest with him? It's been awhile since we heard an update. I'd like to know how he's doing.

    I'm about to start another round of chemo, I'll send you a pm

  6. There is a farm about a half mile from my house that has several buffalo grazing near a pond in the field.

    It is very strange to see buffalo in the middle of Ohio.

    Edited to say: Nice photos, everyone!

    :lol: That's funny DOC, being in a military family and traveling through and living in many different states I've come to realize that once you get away from the coast or the big cities the majority of America is as rural in the boondocks as you can get. :D

    I'm really starting to like the idea of moving to a more wide open area myself but as you know it's best I live close in for the time being.

    I've even had conversations with my parents about selling our houses and buying a piece of rural property with a couple smaller homes already on the land and having a little family compound, a home where the buffalo roam! Lol

    Might even be a frugal idea with the way the economy has been going

  7. Hi there everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows where to find a classic led zeppelin t-shirt. I believe it said hammer of the gods on the back, and there was a sort of mysterious thor god image in the clouds (i recall, maybe he was green in color?) about to swing an axe/hammer over a crowd of people fleeing.

    I would really like to locate this t-shirt, ive spent a few hours looking for it online.

    Anyone ever recall such a thing?

    Maybe it was a different band?

    I last saw it in the late 80s.

    Please help!

    Does this bare any resemblance?


  8. What made me happy today was talking to the endocronoloy nurse Chris, who took the time to talk to me, explain my test results and reasure me that all was well. Sort of, at least all things point to benign - so ...

    FUCK YA! Still here fellow babies!!! Let the good Lord and the Mighty Zep lead the way!

    What a load off of my mind! Now I'll be off to tackle my lazy teen, wounded marriage, unemployment and personal bankrupcy, also world hunger and middle east peace.

    It's going to be a busy day.

    Most excellent :)

  9. I picked Lee to win several weeks back but started to worry he might lose it in the end as he didn't seem to be very enthusiastic about it.

    I thought the duet with Casey and Brett Michaels was great, gotta give a standind O to Brett after all he has and will be going through to keep on keepn' on


  10. This just in- Local news outlets are reporting that several fisherman working on the oil clean up project became ill and had to be flown to a New Orleans area hospital, it's unclear if the illness was related to exposure to the oil dispersants being uesd on the spill.

    I'll post any updates I hear about.

    I really feel for these folks, bad enough BP has screwed up there livelyhoods now they are endangering their lives.

    BP should be supplying proper safety equipment like filtered respirators and not those cheap dust masks ofcourse In BPs defense you can't make them use the equiment and it is paid work that they signed on for, use that safety equipment guys!

  11. loads and i have both owned homes before ( when we were both married to others ). i have no deposit, and as you know i live week to week. we would much prefer to buy, but i can't see it happening. :(

    Yes it is tough I know, I remember purchasing my home I had to get some help from family and had to sell some of my personal assets in order to come up with the down payment and closing costs, insurance, utillity deposits and other moving costs and they won't let you borrow any of those expenses and you have to prove to the bank where you came up with the funds.

    One reason why I can't understand how they let the housing market crash, when I purchased they made me jump through hoops and I had excellent credit :rolleyes:

    Hope things work out for y'all :)

  12. Hey, anybody else wondering where the hell George Clooney, et al are? 35 days later, and you'd be hard pressed to find a story on this disaster.

    For shame, Mr. President.

    It's a daily story down here ofcourse, but I guess if you're refering to clooney's bleeding heart I would guess that not enough dead fish have surfaced yet.

    It's coming! I have to feel for the people that depend on the gulf to make their livelyhood. I'm refering to the fishermen, I used to have a commercial shrimp boat myself and I know a lot of these folks personally, most are born into this way of life and know no other way to make a living.

    This thing is going to be really bad for the whole country if it causes severe damage to the marshes which are basically the nursery for the majority of our country's seafood as well as untold species of birds and insects and micro organisms alike.

    From a locals perspective it seems that BP is not doing enough quick enough and from the federal level there doesn't seem to be the urgency that one would expect.

    I will say that our local leaders are ready to take charge with or without the permits from the army Corp and have already commandered some of BP's boats for hire to place oil boom in areas where no action was taking place.

    Hooray for them, I guess we learned our lesson from Katrina about waiting for someone else to do their jobs.

  13. just found out that the place i rent is going on the market to be sold.

    now begins the search for a suitable place that i can afford.... not easy, there's not much around. :unsure:

    this will be about the 7th move in about 10 years. damn owners always say that they wont ever sell, but they always do. :angry:

    i'm so over moving. :(

    Have You checked to see if they have any first time homebuyer/low down payment home buyer programs availible in your area?

    I'm not familiar with the social programs in you country but they have all types of plans in the US both Federal, State and local.

    There's nothing like owning your own place even with the maintenance, insurance and taxes you always know as long as you make

    your payments no one is going to put you out plus you will build equity instead of making the landlord rich.

    Good luck to you and yours STZ

    p.s. in most cases you can purchase a home for near the same as rent.

  14. thankyou so much everyone that has posted their pics, i just love putting faces to the names, sometimes they are so different from what i imagine! :)

    one day i may get brave enough to post my own.... :unsure:

    Well IMHO you have no reason to be shy :rolleyes: cutie! :D

  15. Actually, that's my Softail Custom. Look back at the old posts, Midnight Rambler's Bike is a Dyna Wide Glide. Very similar bikes.....especially the handlebars.

    :slapface: Doh! Yes yes I didn't pay close attention to the frame only the color, haven't been seeing things too clearly lately lol.

    Sweet ride you have there.

  16. Hey Al good to see you around, I haven't been around much myself lately.

    Back in the late 70's and early80's I myself worked as a contractor on many

    offshore platforms and I can say that safety was the number one priority on

    all of the rigs I worked on and that Chevron and ARCO had the cleanest nicest

    safest equipment of any of the companies I contracted with and I'm confident that

    those practices haven't changed.

    All of the safety practices were industry standard and I wouldn't expect that to have changed

    unless there were improvements.

    Like the man said no one goes to work in the middle of the gulf wanting to get blasted into the sea.

    My condolences to those men and their famlies that have to go on without their loved ones.

  17. Wow you dug this thread from the bottom of the locker, that's Midnight Rambler's bike if I remember right.

    Kinda makes me a little sad though since I've sold my Harley.

    Soon as I get myself back upright I may get another but first things first.

    Hadn't heard from tinkerbell in a while.

  18. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.

    I just spent most of the day with mine or rather she and my

    father spent the day with me since I'm not getting around

    as much as I would like right now.

    Still we had a great time and got to talk a lot which was very

    enjoyable. :D

  19. Thank you all for the positive thoughts and wishes and I would like share some of this good karma with my brother and his family.

    Have a great weekend everyone. :)
