Isn't Rowland Barnes the uncle of John Richardson? Thats what I heard. I guess they're keeping it in the family. I also heard around town that they're trying to sell their liquor to other bars in town.

I'm not from Oak Town. I'm from Kelseyville. But it sure sounds like you know alot about Oakland and the gayrate places in San Francisco. But i'd rather be from Oakland than Clearlake or Gayhaven, where you are obviously from.

hey dill-hole-know, the purpose of blogs is to have some sort of productive debate and discussion, not so you can work out your deep-seated and plentiful emotional problems. Using all upper case letters, inablity to string together two coherent sentances and communicate in english are not admirable traits, if you got something helpful to say that you want to share fine, just don't load every blog with self-centered, immature rambling, it ruins it for everyone else and makes you look like probably even more of an idiot than you are. Show us you are a grown up or not, your call...

Today is the last day for league bowling, plus the lease is up at the end of May. I really dont see this place staying open much longer, with hardly any revenue coming in. I haven't heard of alot of people signing up for any of the summer league's, since most of the bowlers are refusing to bowl there as long John R and Rowland are involved. I know quite a few bowlers who are joining league's in Ukiah. Lets just hope something good comes of this. It might take a while, but eventually there will be new owners who know how to run a business.

And, "diduknow", if you have any comments on this, maybe keep them to yourself. I really dont care what you have to say anymore. Any thing you say doesn't even makes sense.

It's your ISP if you have a satelite, it floats from city to city. Look at mine, I'm from out of this State! LOL
But seriously, I know a guy named Rich Kuhr from the Bay Area who happens to be good friends with a guy who owns many bowling alleys in the Bay area, Daly City Bel Mateo, San Mateo, Pacific Coast Lanes etc...
Call Rich and let him know what's going on:
I am not being mean, this is true! I would like to see the Bowling Alley exist.
You ask why I do not call? Good question. I'm tired of trying to help with anything in this County. I have run out of energy. To much volunteering and running a business! Burned out!

Well...that was rather harsh....actually 360 is also correct. A person doing a complete turn around as "mom" implied about her son, would be doing a 360! As for the rest of the comments about "trailer" dwellers, those type of comments show the person's obvious lack of intelligence.

Gee Mom did you fail Math class? A 360 returns you right where you started, perhaps you mean a 180?

Just a not Merriam-Websters says

AIN'T
One entry found.

ain't

Main Entry:
ain't Listen to the pronunciation of ain't
Pronunciation:
\&#712;&#257;nt\
Etymology:
contraction of are not
Date:
1749

1 : am not : are not : is not 2 : have not : has not 3 : do not : does not : did not —used in some varieties of Black English
usage Although widely disapproved as nonstandard and more common in the habitual speech of the less educated, ain't in senses 1 and 2 is flourishing in American English. It is used in both speech and writing to catch attention and to gain emphasis <the wackiness of movies, once so deliciously amusing, ain't funny anymore — Richard Schickel> <I am telling you—there ain't going to be any blackmail — R. M. Nixon>. It is used especially in journalistic prose as part of a consistently informal style <the creative process ain't easy — Mike Royko>. This informal ain't is commonly distinguished from habitual ain't by its frequent occurrence in fixed constructions and phrases <well—class it ain't— Cleveland Amory> <for money? say it ain't so, Jimmy!— Andy Rooney> <you ain't seen nothing yet> <that ain't hay> <two out of three ain't bad> <if it ain't broke, don't fix it>. In fiction ain't is used for purposes of characterization; in familiar correspondence it tends to be the mark of a warm personal friendship. It is also used for metrical reasons in popular songs <Ain't She Sweet> <It Ain't Necessarily So>. Our evidence shows British use to be much the same as American.

Unfortunately when the Ricahrdsons first came to Lake County, yes, she was a "hot wife". Then she became an alcoholic along with other problems. She then popped out 2 kids since then (Are they really Johns??) and became a bit pudgy and looked horrible. Unrecognizable the term would be. Last I heard she is now in Rehab.
How dare you talk about her like that have you no heart or sympathy? Clearly you have nothing better to do than talk poorly about someone you don't even know. grow the hell up
