    Police Minn cops erect racist xmas tree

    I had no idea what a Taki was either. But don't you touch those Moon Pies. My 80 year old mama still eats those.
  2. Whatever floats his boat, I guess. I prefer to find a shirt I like, and then buy it in every color available... and find a pair of jeans/pants that fit right, and buy 4 of them. This feels like the same outfit, but no one will ever notice.

    Opinion/interpretation Needed

    I would assume it meant pedestrians, too. If it meant only vehicles, it would have said so.
  4. I guess I'll just set up my grow-lights a little earlier than planned.

    I lost my dad today.....

    I'm sorry, astepup.
  6. When you love a woman and you're alone (it ain't easy) and you're on your own (in a trial by fire), you could ask the lonely, but if you lay it down in the line of fire, all that really matters is that you (patiently) place in your heart the touch of a woman, and look into the future at your lifetime of dreams and in your wildest dream don't stop believing that you can get karma anyway you want it. You must someday soon daydream of a better life in the city of angels down dixie highway where the majestic wheel in the sky beyond the clouds will place in your heart a homemade love all the way from a higher place, and all the things that you can do in self defense to escape feeling that way will be the only solutions of a lifetime where nothin' comes close to the natural thing which only the young people raised on radio are happy to give. Either that or you've gone crazy.
  7. I think he wanted it in order to make living with the bat-**** crazy woman a little more tolerable. But that's just my opinion...

    Duck hash

    OOOooh that sounds good. Especially sine we had Pineapple Coconut Duck in the crockpot for supper, and there is just enough leftover for my breakfast...

    Funny think I heard today

    Wow, Crockett! I feel for ya'! My problems were a) the original "house" was built in 1900. I use " " because it was actually originally... A CHICKEN COOP. NOT kidding. Well, really a small barn full of chickens with chicken feed stored in the loft. b) The three additions were added at various points after the structure was turned into a house. The first addition was on one side. We discovered 2" thick 20' long oak and black walnut planks UNDER the OSB and vinyl that the kitchen had been slapped on top of. Too bad there were nails every single inch... But at least that was sturdy... since it was apparently originally a deck... and the next two additions (front and back) were built deck-style again in terms of "foundation" - maybe 6" of wood down in the dirt (rotted, of course, the last addition being put on in the 1980s). Then there was the plastic sheets. In the walls. And the roof. You know. The kind of thing that doesn't let the house breathe, so all the OSB in the roof is SOLID BLACK with mold. I just loved the idea of tiling the land around the second addition so that it ALWAYS DRAINED INTO THE SPACE UNDER THE ROOM ITSELF. That would be "Lake Under-my-living-room" that would then drain into the "Michigan basement" (stone walls, dirt floor) under the original part of thee house. What's more annoying is this isn't even the end of the list, and none of it was caught during the supposed "inspection" prior to our buying it. It's okay now, though. We still have the 48 acres it sits on, the 120 year old barn, the 4 year old pole barn, and the brand new house that we built behind that freaking mess. And I got to pick the floor plan, and everything else for it, because Mr.C was too busy. ROFL. He earned a lot of points with me for that!

    from the excavator knocking down my old house... "In 18 years of doing this, I have never SEEN a foundation like that!" How they got that approved, and passed inspection, we will never know... But it's in the dumpster now, so I'll never have to deal with it again! Oh YEAH, baby!

    Which translation

    It wouldn't let me vote for multiple versions. I usually take the NKJV, because it fits in my purse. If I'm carrying a bigger bag, I'll take the NIV. If I feel like practicing my Spanish, I'll take the Biblia de Las Americas (definitely NOT the Reina Valera). I have a Polish NT around here somewhere, but my Polish isn't up to it, yet.
  12. Invictus by William Ernest Henley Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find me, unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.

    Material things your wife wont let you have....

    I don't buy stuff that would put us in the hole financially, so he doesn't care what I buy. As long as he does the same, he can buy whatever he wants. Except hooker and blow. I do have to draw the line somewhere.
