    Cool Sites

    Ain't it though? Glad u liked it! We try typing in anyword.com and see what comes up. Most domain names are taken, although it's surprising some that aren't or aren't anymore. spleen.com is taken for example. Go figure. trucks dot com is a good one if you're in to trucks.

    Cult Mentality

    Let's see where it lands. Interesting comments, Hope. Hmmm...maybe. Dunno. I've always had a ying/yang thing going in my personality. Like, when I was about 11, knee deep in Catholic Parochial education, I decided that being a priest would be cool. I was a fairly serious thinker (then as now I guess) and I figured, "if anyone understands what all this is about, priests do". Kids, huh? At the same time, same year, I was raisin' serious Cain with my teachers, askin' questions like "why are we so sure there's a heaven"? and "how do we know there's a God"? It got so "bad" that mid year or so the Sistern called my parents in to talk to them about how I was developing "Communist" views...! No kidding, really happened. 11 years old, I'm a communist, right? Pass the vodka! So here I am, a kid, looking for "answers" and thinking I'll be a priest, and at the same time I was questioning openly the whole religious thing. Later in high school, I met a priest, "Father Donovan", who told me he'd quit high school in Ireland and hitchhiked around Europe for a few years, questioning everything he'd been raised to believe and finally came back to the Catholic faith. So there he was, and he actually encouraged me to a/question everything and b/definitely wait to even think about being a priest, till I'd had a chance to grow up a little. By then I wasn't interested, (I was surrounded by Catholic girls in pleated skirts!) but it was interesting advice. So long story longer, I've found I've always been kind of like that. A non-joiner who likes to join things and then try to change them. Doesn't make sense, does it? So now I don't look to join anything. If something comes along I want to be a part of, I do it, but I'm really careful about making committments because I know how I am. I work hard and heavy on things I believe in but I also know things change - they're supposed to I think. I personally believe that the one thing that doesn't is "love", definable on any number of levels. That's all I'm looking to carry away to the last moment I take a breath. And maybe a hug or two and a nice guitar in hand, if I have my druthers... I place highest on my list of "things I belong to" my family, our kids, marriage, and friends (which is just about anybody that doesn't try to screw me) and that's about it. "Intangible assets" I guess. Hmmm...nother long post, not much said. But it's something...let's all sing a song...

    Editing Time Limit

    Ok,I feel better now, Suz, thanks for responding...a few people have mentioned it lately and I wondered if, in my never ending quest to goof around, I'd made someone feel bad. (You mean it's not all about ME???) I hear ya...thanks! and to anyone else the same stands. aunnghhhh! ooooowwwww! It's not the crawling that hurts.... unnnghhh, aiyooowwwwww! It's this da#@&!!! glass....!!! Like your swell half, George. I don't know that he and I agree when it comes to some things, but I've always felt you both sound like cool human beings. That's what it comes down to really. I don't agree on most things with my best friends. Except for Mrs. Socks, with whom I agree on everything she says.

    Editing Time Limit

    I vote for that, makes it as simple as possible. Shoot, once this board gets rolling, it'll be like GS, so many threads I can't find anything from last week anyway...oh wait! We have a SEARCH feature now that B]works[/b] ....! Still vote for editability ad infinitum, but I will abide by whatever the Great GreaseSpot in the Sky decides in His great wisdom. By the way, if I offended anyone with my "Spellerman" post awhile back, I apologize. It was just a comment, and I certainly don't give more than a 1/4 rats a$$ about spelling or think less of anyone for something like that, it was just a suggescthun. See? I can't type worth a shiste, so that's why I personally tend to correct over and over because otherwise it'd read like dog-latin. love
