What do you mean anti-Eddie Haskell? I was polite. :shock:

Hey Simon; thanks for a great breakfast. Hope your day went well.

I didn't tickle him or give him a wet willy, I'm too polite. I did sneak a hug though.

We will have to break you of that bad habit.
:shock:
Being to polite.
:lol:
Considering his circumstances, a hug is all he would probably want though.

Hope your doing better Simon.
Hope you have a great rest of your trip Deb.

:D

It was a great travel day. Just arrived here at Arkville at Stewart and Tong's home not far from Woodstock.

Time to go to work. I'll take a coffee to keep me up for a couple hours.

Polite seems to work for me, GH. Although I was called a Femi-Nazi this week by a first class bitch so I guess I'm not all sugar and spice. :D

Eddie Haskell was the smarmy kid in some 1950s sit-com who led people into trouble. Or did you know this. even the thought is giving me a head ache. Anyway, it's a piece of American Pop Culture that doesn't deserve the mind space so many baby boomers have given it.

It's not that good a story GH and it's all on my Facebook page. I tagged a "friend" with a photo of a poster for a campaign against our Prime Minister.
Last week he called women a left wing fringe interest group so we're just having a little fun with the idiot.

Anyway, that friend doesn't like being tagged but she had failed to inform me of that. When she went off the deep end a bit, i suggested that tagging was easy for her to eliminate by unselecting herself from the list. It was a rather public little spat on Facebook and I have since blocked her as it was getting a bit intense and unnecessarily so. Obviously I don't really have a clue who she is - someone recommended her as a friend and I didn't want to offend anyone. She must be a musician because I get daily updates on where she is playing.

Isn't there a dental school near you, Simon. They love to have patients to practice on. And at least they will have had some training. Usually this is free.

Not really, if I was I would ask for a video of the ex-wives working on him with pliers.

Don't want to see that, want him to recover before 2010.

Good Idea about a dental school.
Let the kids torture you Simon.

Oh crap. What's actually going to happen is that they will have to get a permit from the Army Corps of Engineers. That means the public will have input, and it means that it will take a couple of years to go through the process in order to put the mountain in the river.

http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/EPA-IMPACT/ ... i16803.htm
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is proposing to take
two actions concerning Nationwide Permit (NWP) 21, which authorizes
discharges of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States
for surface coal mining activities. First, the Corps proposes to modify
NWP 21 to prohibit its use to authorize discharges of dredged or fill
material into waters of the United States for surface coal mining
activities in the Appalachian region of the following states: Kentucky,
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia until it
expires on March 18, 2012. The proposed modification would enhance
environmental protection of aquatic resources by requiring surface coal
mining projects in the affected region to obtain individual permit
coverage under the Clean Water Act (CWA), which includes increased
public and agency involvement in the permit review process, including
an opportunity for public comment on individual projects.
Using
the individual permit process would provide more information for the
Corps to consider for making decisions on these permit applications,
because of increased public and agency involvement, such as the
opportunity to comment on public notices for individual surface coal
mining activities in Appalachia. This additional information could help
improve the Corps' analysis of impacts to public interest review
factors, including the aquatic environment and other relevant
environmental factors within the Corps' Federal control and
responsibility.
The Corps now believes it would be more
appropriate to evaluate these adverse effects through the individual
permit process, with a full public interest review, rather than through
NWP 21. The decision to authorize a particular surface coal mining
activity under NWP 21 is based on an evaluation of not only the
potential individual and cumulative adverse effects of the proposed
activity on the aquatic environment, but also on the potential adverse
effects on Corps' other public interest review factors listed at 33 CFR
320.4(a)(1), such as conservation, aesthetics, economics, land use,
recreation, fish and wildlife values, energy needs, food and fiber
production, and general considerations of property ownership, to the
extent that those public interest factors are relevant to waters of the
United States subject to CWA jurisdiction.
In the Appalachian region of Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania,
Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia, NWP 21 has been used to
authorize surface coal mining activities that involve discharges of
dredged or fill material into waters of the United States that have
resulted in adverse environmental impacts that may be more than minimal
on a cumulative basis. For this reason, the Corps now believes that
impacts of these activities on jurisdictional waters of the United
States, particularly cumulative impacts, would be more appropriately
evaluated through the individual permit process, which entails
increased public and agency involvement, including an opportunity for
public comment on individual projects.
It's not an absolute victory, and it's only a halt in the current process while they gather further information to decide whether they are going to change their permitting process. It could go back the way it has been in 3 years. But they aren't going to just roll over and say it's okay anymore. So, it's up in the air, but I think it's a positive step.

It certainly is a step in a good direction. Long after the money has been spent, the mountains will still be gone. Maybe people are starting to look around and see what is happening around them.

Eplaya is giving me fits tonight. Keeps kicking me off.

It's being okay with me, but who knows what that means.

Part of the solution is going to have to be some sort of local economic activity. I don't know how we do that, but starving people have no trouble selling their children into slavery, as it were.

But you really shouldn’t bait me in here.
I’m a stubborn hardheaded relentless person who wont back down or let go on what I believe.
Never been one to follow like sheep. So I’m not going to start now.
