Jam, it's awesome the progress you're making. I've only had one major breakup, and that was key. I had gotten a new job a couple weeks after, so I was meeting all kinds of new people and being invited out and stuff. Helped a lot.

Wilma took out 3 posts along my fence. Snapped right at the ground. In fact, the telephone poles along the street were all snapped as well, but all about 3ft above the ground.

Glad you are safe. If the bathroom a real safe room, or just the most interior room?

When Hurricane Charlie cam thru here in 2004, it cause millions in damage to the area. But it only knocked down 3 of my fence panels(sent one flying over the roof) and snapped 1 fence post. We were driving home about 2 hours ago when the national weather alert came on the radio. Tornado warnings for the area. Within 20 minutes of being home my wife screamed for everyone to get in the bathroom(safe room if you will). Thought she saw the makings of a tornado. We were already seeing some tremendous wind and rain out the back. I looked out the back, ad half our fence is gone. Not blown away, but knocked down. Posts that we have concreted into the ground, snapped. At least 7. Maybe more. Hopefully insurance will cover that. Daddy needs a new fence.

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt?
We find ourselves at a loss when someone says,'You don't knowJack Schitt!'
Well, thanks to genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.
Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt.
Awe Schitt was married to O. Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, and owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc. They had one son, Jack.
In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.
Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout.
After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt-Sherlock.
Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition who was nick-named Chicken Schitt.
Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.
The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials.
The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.
Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world.
He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride,Pisa Schitt.
Now when someone says,'You don't know Jack Schitt,' you can correct them.
Sincerely,
Crock O. Schitt
LMAO @ Pisa Schitt

I got my trellis done. I didn't think it would take me that long, but it took awhile.

Oh, and we had some pretty good winds here too. Shredded the canopy cover over my car. Good thing those are cheap.

I can't blame him either. Read that letter. One of the best indictments of the azzholes who were in agreement for going into Iraq. Starting at the top and all the way down to the military and rest of the politicians.

I don't blame him either. That was such a worthless war and it will haunt the republicans for some time to come..

Browsing the mug shots in the Trib this morning, one guy was arrested for "Criminally transmitting HIV." Nice knowing they'll actually arrest someon for that. Probably one of the saucier investigations.

I feel for this guy and his wife, and also his family. It must be hell for the parents to watch their son live this way, and then die this way. But from what I've heard parents say, they'd rather their child die than continue to suffer.

After my mom's final week in the hospital, I have no clue how people can watch someone suffer horribly for years at a time like that. Maybe it becomes somewhat *normal* after a while, but it's got to be a complete nightmare.

The thing that gets me is that this man is still mentally capable. He has been living with the surgeries, pain and everything else for years. He is able to make his own decisions and they need to be respected.

I understand that people want to be supportive and try to keep a positive attitude, but there comes a point where people have to put their own feelings aside. That becomes even harder when someone is not conscious or mentally in control of their facilities, but hasn't left any instructions on what to do regarding extreme measures.

Obama was handed that war, edog. I also think it winded down about the best it could. It was pure folly to go in there.

Any Aziz Ansari fans here? Washington Post had a great piece on him yesterday, I shared it with coworkers who also are fans. One found out he's coming here so we all said "Yeah, awesome, fun night out."

Tickets are $65+.

Um, no thanks.

Dwah? He's hilarious, but that's a bit steep for something I can catch on Comedy Central for relatively free.
