Such a tragedy! As a fellow motorcyclist, I have delt with people in all size vehicles who do not practice lane discipline. It happens much too frequently here in Georgia. They are such terrible drivers here. I'm getting pretty sick of it. I hope the law throws the book at the auto driver and impose heavy fines and jail time. In my eyes, this is nothing short of vehicular murder and should be treated thusly. (Oct 22, 2008 | post #2)
Marriage was created by society to protect the children and the woman. A man and a man can not have a natural child. A woman and a woman can not have a natural child. 'Nuff said. Homosexual "marriage " is a farce. (Jul 5, 2008 | post #484)
I be careful. :o)) I've been riding in many types of traffic and various weather conditions since childhood and not had any mishaps. (I'm 52 yrs old now.) 'Course, I'm always aware of my surroundings too. And it pays to be highly visible. (Jun 14, 2008 | post #9)
The plus side to the higher gas prices: most of the 4 wheelers are no longer tearing down our dirt road at all hours of the day and night. Awww, peace and quiet is back in the country again. Just a suggestion: to help save money on gas, I would recommend purchasing a Kawasaki Ninja 250 motorcycle. It sips gas at 75 mpg highway. They only cost about $3,499 new. They're cheaper than a scooter and can keep up with traffic. (Jun 12, 2008 | post #4)
The law is one must be here legally, so, Ms. Martinez will probably have to be deported. Perhaps she can then return legally and be able to hold her head high. I wish her good luck in a speedy return to the US. And may her sons stay safe. (Jun 3, 2008 | post #386)
I am posting WAY too many obituaries at www.findagrave.com for 'kids' under 25 who die in auto accidents. It's amazing how many fatal and near-fatal accidents are occuring just in this little SE Georgia area. They're driving too fast for their lack of experience and not wearing safety restraints. I think it would make the roads safer if all States would raise the legal driving age to 21 years. Those under 21 years could still have restricted licenses (driving with an adult in the vehichle) so as to gain experience. I'm tired of so many young lives being cut short so needlessly. Let the debates begin ... (May 21, 2008 | post #1)
Dang, I'll start being EXTRA careful driving thru Blackshear now! Yipes. Even though the internet license renewal is nice, I would prefer Georgia go back to the renewing in person. There's just too much room for fraud, not catching the legally blind, and other issues when we can do so anonymously. Just because someone hasn't had an accident doesn't mean they're fit to drive. Kinda off subject, but in the same vein: I believe that Georgia needs to tighten their motor licensing laws anyway. There's plenty of young people that have NO business behind the wheel they are so careless. I'm posting WAY too many obituaries at www.findagrave.com for 'kids' under 25 who die in auto accidents.

I live in the part of the world where summers are brutal. It's better than winter, but not by much. (May 17, 2008 | post #1)
Sounds like a good idea. There need to be more cleanup efforts in all the counties. I know my hubby and I are doing our part. We use the golf cart to travel up and down our country dirt road picking up our piggy neighbors trash. We're just trying to do our part to keep Pierce County clean. The only problem is, there is so much litter, we keep running out of room in our enormous Southland issued bin. (May 17, 2008 | post #1)
I had to look this one up. I've never heard of Fly Ash before this controversay. Here's a brief synopsis of what I found: Non-combustible residue that results from burning fuels in an incinerator, boiler or furnace. It can include metal oxides, silicates and sulfur compounds, as well as many other chemical pollutants. ... www.dtsc.ca.gov/In formationResources /glossary.cfm Fine airborne particulates carried out of a boiler by waste gases after the combustion of solid fuel, for example, coal, and expelled as noncombustible airborne emissions or recovered as by-products for commercial use. See aerosol, air pollution. amsglossary.allenp ress.com/glossary/ browse A by-product from coal-fired electric power generating plants. The mineral constituents in coal, such as clay, quartz and shale, do not burn. Instead, they fuse and chemically recombine to form various crystalline and glassy phases of fly ash. ... www.lehighcement.c om/Education/Lehig h-Education-Glossa ry.htm www.flyash.com/ More definitions here. I found more but I won't put them here. I'm not scientific in any way shape or form. Seems that using the term "Fly Ash" can cover a lot of things. Depends on what this particular "Fly Ash" is a by-product of. Could be dangerous, could be innocuous. Might wanna start asking questions of those in the know. Nice to have you back on the airwaves Tuvok. :o) (May 17, 2008 | post #3)
Excellent and quite true! Wish I had thought of that. You must have been born in the 1970's? I was a teenager rockin' 'n rollin' then. :o)) I miss the 70's. (May 17, 2008 | post #136)
