  1. What Was Your Favorite Treat When You Were A Kid

    Hi Daggoo.....:) MWAH so good to see you. Never much on squirrel, but my oma (grandma) made a killer hassenffeffer (rabbit.)
  2. What Was Your Favorite Treat When You Were A Kid

    We had a little corner store owned by a chinese family.....my two favorites were the same as they are today. Beef jerky ... only then it was fifteen cents SWEET TARTS....can't remember the price but I am sure it was less that it is today. So Jim....my little store was on the corner of 9th street and Santa Clara Avenue, across the street from the Santa Clara Pharmacy. Yours?
  3. So how did you pick your handle?

    After I left staff at twi hq...I worked for a defense contractor. My "doogie howser" child genius boss would throw out things that "I should do." After 9 years on staff in which a suggestion was the same as a directive.....I would hop right on it and just about the time I finished it....he would change his mind. So, like Radar O'Reilly on MASH........I would be all finished with my task, just in time to go back and re do it all. Very Simple....but just for all of you that don;t know....I am not MALE, NOT short and don' wear glasses. :)
  4. The Way Corps cruise ship

    Not planning to..........I can't even look at a postcard of the QE2 without getting sea sick. ror
  5. The Way Corps cruise ship

    WOW you guys, a gal stops posting for a couple of years and she comes back to find one of the most stupid posts in the history of gspot or waydale. Come on Groucho my love, direct your rebellious energy towards something like finding out exactly how many people are still on staff, or obtaining a copy of twi's latest LTC list! BTW.....nice to see you all
  6. TRUTH, JUSTICE, AND THE "NOT-SO-AMERICAN" WAY INTERNATIONAL

    Oldiesman, How about Eli and his sons? Eli did not ensure that his sons lived the Word, so Eli, his sons, and the entire nation of Israel suffered the consequences. radar
  7. The corps night telephone hook-up in which Chris Geer first read POP was heard by Corps on the field, that was April 23rd 1986. It was then read to a couple of hundred invited guests in May of 1986 in NK. That year during corps week it was read out loud from under the big top (talk about a horrible week ) It depended on where people lived, and who the field "managers" were, how much they knew about pop. Some local leadership were very protective of their folks, others made sure everyone knew every jot and tittle. On March 8th 1988, lcm made his official break with gartmore and sent out that icky "who do you stand with?" letter in which he gave the 50 limb coordinators, all paid field staff which was @ 100, and all of the way corps grads an ultimatum about who they stood with. That event was a defining moment in the history of the way, and really started the mass exodus. radar Somewhere around here is a thread entitled "A night that will live in infamy," it is long, but it describes the original reading of POP and the following events.
  8. Why were we wearing name badges at SNS?

    For some of the time I was on staff (85-94)only the staff, way corps and wows were required to wear their nametags. Basically, as of March 1989 all VISITORS were also required to wear names tags, because the "New Knoxville Vice," also known as the way safety department were afraid there were cop-outs sitting in the audience. Little did they know............. :unsure: Radar
  9. YFZ kids ordered back to parents

    This afternoon the TX supreme court (what a scary thought) ordered the Yearning for Zion kids back to their parents/the YFZ compound. I am sick, I mean literally sick enough to vomit about this. Is it just my own past, having grown up in a cult? This whole situation has been giving me nightmares.......keeping me up at night. Do I just need to schedule an emergency appointment with a shrink, or are any of you feeling this unsettled? ror
  10. Explain the Rapture please

    Methinks the Jehovah Witnesses are back. ror
  11. Happy Birthday Radar

    OMG! Today isn't my birthday, but to wake up and find such loving sentiments really means a lot to me. You all are so very special. Thanks so much. Love, Radar
  12. What would you do if an IED were to go off in your neighborhood?

    move to Nova Scotia. :blink: Radar
  13. Old weird recipes from the past

    I have lots of old recipes too....they were / are my grandma's (she would be 104 now) and my mom's. JJ your hassenpfeffer & spaetzle rocks!!! That was a family favorite and we had it at least 4 times a year, one of those times was on my cousin's bday. We each got to pick our favorite meal for our birthday, his was ALWAYS rabbit and dumplings (the english translation ) with chocolate cake and boiled frosting. She also made kick foot squirrell with mashed potatoes, alot of fabulous food was a "poverty food," which is what most of our forebearers had to make do with. There is an old Frugal Gourmet cookbook called "Our Emmigrant Ancestors'" which is full of poverty recipes, I have a recipe book I bought at Ellis Island, that has recipes from emmigrants that came in at Ellis Island...........what a treasure. Fun thread! radar
  14. Adopting a dog from out-of-state

    Hi Chas, Check out Petfinder.com and go to the breed rescue group, there should also be some transport links from there. Also, you can check out AcmePetTransportation.com, they basically do the "train thing" the Dot mentioned but usually it is only for shelter moves. Someone there should be able to send you very helpful. Radar
