Re: God Bless BURGINS!!

Ratty - I love you, and yeah, it was my first year. But I have been camping a lot, and we used those skills to make it happen. Elliot was a great resource. And our enthusiasm overcame all obstacles - that is what Burgins DO :) ;) We were a group of five. Grey Coyote, Sadie, Kowtow, and Chuck... and ...

Re: God Bless BURGINS!!

Last year was my Burgin year. I had been planning to go for four years... so I had lurked eplaya a lot. Decided it wasn't for me several times. Absorbed the information, and ignored the negativity. We put on a hell of a first burn. Fed over 1,000 tamales. Nearly a 1,000 ice pops. Disco shower. Contr...

Re: Flattop shade design questions

Elliot's flat top isn't all flat, it wedges up around Millicent. We brought in a standard EMT flat top and tied on. His supports are huge. In prior testing, in Texas, on the driveway, we had some bounce. That is the wind would lift the entire structure. We beefed up the tie downs, and reduced the la...

Re: DAMN CAT

Cats will lie to you. I just got back from a 4 day campout with some BM friends, and my cats told me they had NEVER been fed while I'm gone.
But A) I know they were because a good friend was doing it, and B) I know they were by the volume in the cat food bin.
Cats will lie....

Re: ePlaya Pets

I have lots of chicken survival stories. Almost all roosters. One year it rained roosters. We had a big rain storm, and the next morning there was a greentailed rooster on the front porch. Kinda ordinary, but missing some feathers. So I built him a cage, got a couple of hens from the feed store - th...

That is how ridiculous the results from last night were. In Texas, a cripple who discriminates against cripples, a man who is admittedly rac...

The students in Connecticut don't have it. The sick fliers in Chicago don't have it. The cruise ship nurse doesn't have it.
Looks like Pham could be released soon.
