We are so lucky to hang out with lucky

Got the fam (only one section of it) on the first part of going to Austria to be with that son-in law's people
his last request to me was to please clean out the refrigerator
I said yes
smelly for sure..he likes to stock lots of stinkie cheeses.. the stinkier the better
and I said that my request is that I will make his b'day present be that we will see Arnold Schwarznegger's new movie together
he goes as Arnie every Halloween
And I do like the concept of resurrection.

JovanK, Bravo for your Indiana experience doing well

Ahhhnold never had the misfortune of being mis-cast as opposed to being typecast.

It happened to John Wayne once, who was in 'The Greatest Story Ever Told' as a Roman centurion. His one line: "Surely, this man was
the son of God." was delivered with the same slow drawl-like speech that made him famous in western films.

yum cold brew coffee! Got to add that to the list of to-dos.

Piles of speakers here, and wondering why I consider shopping for more parts. It's a deep and dark pit, but I guess I must love it for some reason. I like thinking I am a maker of things more than I actually AM. I did make a list of priorities, if that counts for anything. Reminds me of a saying: "Two frogs are sitting on a log and one decides to jump. How many frogs are sitting on the log?" It's jump time, froggies.

*wanders in, starts ECM*

*waves at Delle*

there was a moderate series of earthquakes north of the playa........yay?

seems the ramp up to event* post are starting. hang on.

It's such a fine line, in responding, to people and posts.
As relates to vets here:
some love to snark them.
some are down right condescending, and or rude.
some, off subject/tread drift
some wrong, but trying to answer
and some helpful and informative.

IMHO, a mirror of society, in general.

Mix that with the new posters, which run the gamete from lazy, self absorbed, narcissists, to
new, but very capable and self reliant, just trying to understand and or fit.
Or foreigners,who just don't know at all, and have some sort of language and societal challenge.
..........and the totally clueless.........

and trolls.


this makes for some pretty good reading.
Overall, I wish both sides could grow thicker skins.
It used to be harsher here, I can attest to that.
Which does not excuse or influence how it is here, today. Just sayin.

*walks in "with his head on a swivel", obviously looking for something*

Anybody seen Dragonpilot? He has not read the PM I sent him. I may have found him a Ticket, if he is still looking for one.

In a couple hours I leave for Oregon, so I will be offline a bit myself. Going to Kinetic Sculpture Race in Corvallis. Hoping Unjonharley will show up as he always does.

Is anybody else having trouble with not receiving notifications of new posts and PMs?

Four day weekend for me and nothing but going through burn gear and doing a bit of
maintenance on the bikes and rigs.

Elliot, I told you I was investigating that in the thread about the outage where you mentioned it. I also posted a thread about the email notifications, you can find it here. Sheesh!

Good evening, Bar... I'm shutting the joint down for a bit, while I do a bit of maintenance and upkeep on the joint. All the technical issues have been resolved, but I want to make sure we're finely tuned as we head into the home stretch on the 2015 season. MOAR VODKA!
