Ahhh, yes, the Freedom version.(fck the French)

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 he’s 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 what’s 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!

Didn't I say something like (or exactly) this almost 4 years ago?????

Obama Ring

God Bless America & open the Atheists' eyes to see Obama for what he is, and don't let him get in like last time.
Some people voted for Obama, just because Sarah Palin was a Christian w. a cross in her neck.The O ring is ok?.

Holy zhit...you cracked the case!

If he attended Occidental from '79-81, and if his father died in November of '82, there's no way he could have inherited his fathers ring (heretofor referred to as "The Precious") in time for the photos...unless perhaps dad gave it to him before he died.

Pssshttt, where was my head? What are the chances of that ever happening?

I got my fayhers ring about 10 years before he died. It had a black onyx stone in it. Somehow the stone got lost and as a birthday gift from my grandma I got my initials engraved in gold. Still got it for the last 35 years.

I got mine the year after my father died. I'm the baby in the family so my big brother got the ring my dad bought in Munich after the war. He converted just about everything he owned into that ring to make his "fortune" more portable. The diamond was added in Miami when he paid off our house.

My brother, in his infinite wisdom, had the ring duplicated by that same jeweler except modifying the monogram to reflect his initials. Apparently, a European "I" looks a lot like a US "S" so it looked like my ring all along. My brother...should have been named Solomon.

It's been 26 years for me.
