Fck me it's always a good idea, because I can't tell for how much longer the term will be of relevance for me.

So far the T levels (not to be confused with tea parties).... testosterone .... are within range... than'god.

Nothing tops the feeling of getting physical with an intelligent woman .... so help me God..

The very little terms that I can rescue on that song ... or perhaps a subjective interpretation of the few terms I could understand .... suggested me that the lady on the Deutsche Lieder, German Song, was being appologetic ... and that prompted my response that you thought I directed to you personally...

Well, now .... I'll have to have over, my fifth floor neighbor, sing for him or play for him the song, have him explain it to me ... and then report back to you... love..

But Faith, believe me I'm doing it with pleasure.
You definitely deserve it..

Now .... are you .... are you serious about ... you know..
Why don't you get off that coat and let me buy you a drink..

Noooo, Faith ... I would never get nasty with you..

You ... you might have a cousin at JFK working on Immigrations ... and after having flown 11 hours to N.Y. he might send me back home on the next flight...

No, I don't screw around with people like you..

A mixture of Rottweiler and pussycat.. depending on the barometric pressure at that particular geographic location..

D'You know what's the difference between VOP and a Rottweiler ..?

The Rottweiler sometimes ... opens his mouth and let's the victim go.

That vodka, I want it with a cold XL (Red Bull)... After I get the Taurine content of the XL on my blood stream ... I can even jump from the Chinese Bullet Train...

That's a nasty flu bug you've got there...you should let it go. I'd share your indignation except I have to remain nice today. I may be meeting my new grandson later and I'm under orders to keep it cool.

I'm wondering if someone should be put in jail for thinking of this.....

"MIAMI (AP) The winner of a roach-eating contest in South Florida died shortly after downing dozens of the live bugs as well as worms, authorities said Monday.
About 30 contestants ate the insects during Friday night's contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami. The grand prize was a python.
Edward Archbold, 32, of West Palm Beach became ill shortly after the contest ended and collapsed in front of the store, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office statement released Monday. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Authorities were waiting for results of an autopsy to determine a cause of death."

"....The grand prize was a python...."

A python.

Why? The perp died in the commission of the crime. That's the part of free will that sucks...by all rights some of the crazy zhit I've done in my life should have killed me long ago.

Besides, they all signed a release.

And thanks for the props, I'm told I do OK for an old guy.

Hundert Mann und ein Befehl

Somewhere in a foreign land,
they wander through rock and sand,
far from home and fair game,
100 men and hes there as well

100 men and one command
and a way that no one wants,
day in, day out, to who knows where,
burned land and whats the use?

All alone in the dark night,
you have often thought about it,
that far from here the full moon shines
and far from here a young girl cries.

And the world is still so beautiful.
If I could see you just once.
Now separating us already a long year,
because a command was our doom.

At random the fate strikes down.
Today him and tomorrow you.
I hear from afar the crows cawing
in the dawn, why does that have to be?

In our context, this is a song against fighting for our existance ... a song against sacrifice ..

Fighting for our existance, sacrifice and our honest conviction that we are on the right side of this eternal war with the Arabs .... is what kept us alive against all odds...

Thank you VOP, what a blessing! Mom is fine and collecting cudos from everyone present. She made it look like a walk in the park.

In retrospect, I can't help but marvel at how times have changed. A single nurse remained in the room with us to keep watch and when the time was right, alert the team. In under a minute there were eight consummate professionals working together like a well oiled machine right there in her private room. No mad dash to a surgical theater, no parade of unrecognizable eyes above masks...they all introduced themselves at one point or another as someone we'd see when the time was right and sure enough, one moment's notice was all it took for them to swing into action. I could tell that they were all doing something they love to do. Let me tell you...if they go home feeling a little superior about the job they do, it's because they earned it!
