    Brother, cutting back that much just downright sucks! If it weren't for the fact that I don't heal like I did then, I'd go back to playing football.

    It's five years!

    I thought I'd share the big news in my life with all you folks here since I consider you all friends. Today is the five year anniversary of my stepdaughter's diagnosis with high grade Multi-Forma Glioblastoma, or as it's commonly referred to: a real bear of a brain tumor. Kat continues to be stable after every MRI and to look at her, you'd never know she was sick. When we got the info, I asked what the outlook was, even though I really didn't want to know. It was MAYBE 18 months. The five year survival rate for kids with this type of tumor is 2.9%. Every day is a miracle even without cancer in the picture, but with cancer it's an even bigger miracle. Everybody is aware of pink for breast cancer and they have an outstanding charity fighting to cure it, but September was Childhood Cancer Awareness month and it barely made the news. Everybody knows about the punk ribbons and such, but how many know gold is for the kids and gray is for brain tumors? If you would, take a minute to say some prayers for all the kids who fight cancer and if you can, donate a little something for research. Save the Ta-Ta's but save a brain too!

    Ya'll got it pegged. Those 10k calories I was eating when I played football, track , and weight lifting became a demon I've had to fight since I was in college. Hard to change the habit and not feel like you've been put on prisoner rations. Bout got em licked now though. If I make it through the holidays, I'll be able to get back down to my "s'posed to be" weight by June....assuming the S doesn't hit the F. If that happens, it'll be much quicker but more painful.

    That's what got me in the shape I'm in Rayz. It freaked me out when I saw the size of a serving of meat I was SUPPOSED to eat. They say it should be the size of a pack of playing cards and about 3 ounces! Taht's not even a snack in the Hoss house.

    Nah Coastie... I know I saw ya smoking a Cuban on that cruise last year.. I waved at ya from the other cruise ship, where I also was enjoying a fine Cuban cigar legally in international waters! I was sipping some Jack Black label though.. Never aquired the taste for Scotch. I thought that might be the reason for the k.. It's actually a normal "k" though. Here it is in Russian: Америка You can get the backwards N (at least on an iPad) by switching keyboards.

    where do you get your news from?

    Fox, Drudge,AP reports, Andrew Wilkow and Mark Levin on Sirius satellite are primary, then NBC,CBS,ABC,MSNBC,CNN on TV A lot of times I cruise through here or other forums, even non-news related, looking for tidbits that can be used or studied. You'd be surprised what you can pick up even from Yahoo I watch and listen to everything I can get my ears or eyes on. Then I try to sort it all out. That's where being obsessive compulsive and driving for ten hours a day comes in handy.

  13. I hafta agree with P219SIG.... My wife had never held a gun, much less shot one. She listened, pointed and aimed and scared the living hell out of me... Hit right where Capt Bart said! I think there might be some pent up hostility there... Another reason why my most repeated words are, "Yes ma'am" and "I'll do that right now Sweetheart"... Yes, I'm well trained

    hurricane slides up eastern coast

    I was in Charlotte, NC when that Great Storm (from the movie) hit. We got 9 inches of snow in about two hours. Me and another courier were making the Saturday FedEx pickups and deliveries. We met up at one point when it was about four inches deep and thought about calling it a day because it was getting dangerous. We were parked right next to each other, trying to talk over the radio. The signal had to go thru the repeater about 3 miles away and back, and it was snowing so hard that we couldn't hear each other. At least that's what we figured. Finally got in the same truck to talk.. If this thing does half of what they say, it's gonna be just ugly.

    Can't handle Bud products... They give me headaches even from only half a beer.. Maybe a nice Foster's or oh! I know I know! Obscure and I haven't seen em in years.. Mickey's Stingers! Came in a little hand grenade shaped bottle and they were cheap, but man they were good! I always enjoy a good political conversation excoastie. I had a great one with Danm a while back and this one was also great. I want to believe you're correct though. That's what bugs me. I can only see it the way I stated, but I don't want it to be that way. I want the 2nd to BE the law and I don't want to need any other paperwork to make carrying a weapon legal. I just can't justify it. And this is the one thing that I agree with Obama on. It is a charter of negative liberties and states what the federal government can not do and the rights that it can not take away. I just don't see it as correct when he says it should have said what the govt can do on my behalf. As I see it, the best thing the govt can do on my behalf is to get out of the way and leave me alone. I pays my taxes, the govt bought a stealth fighter or at least parts for one with my help. Fly the damn thing and leave me alone I says! Something I've been wanting to ask you for a while.... Why "AmeriKans"? My guess is that it's a verbal protest of the statest way our government is taking the country. Am I right or way off? Oh,cigars! First thing I ever smoked was an actual Cuban cigar given to my Dad..... By Fidel Castro! Google Southern Airways Flight 49... Dad was the Captain and I've got pics of him having dinner with Uncle Fidel!
  18. Hey! I wonder if Coke will get love bugs off of a car? You Yankees wouldn't know about love bugs. They hit the car like a little rock but splatter all over and their blood has some kind of acid that'll eat through paint if you don't wash em off fast enough. It also dries like super glue so it's hard to clean it up. Down here Auburn fans blame Alabama's science dept and Alabama fans blame LSU's science dept. truth be told, the govt probly imported them from Japan for some reason.

    But the states also ratified the first 10. And I believe they should recognize the Right to keep and bear arms, they don't because their own people created their Constitution and took it away. The 2nd only guarantees that the federal govt cant take it away. But in essence we agree I think. How bout a beer?

    We're in agreement on Lincoln Excoastie.. Now, the rights to citizenship to vote, and to end slavery came in the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendmants along with women getting the right to vote from the 19th. And the Constitution does take precedence over states but only because we added the amendmants through the process. They had to be ratified by the states to be approved so the states did have the say so over the matter. I do believe the South kind of had it's arms tied on the 13th though.. Back to the 2nd though... I'd like it to be so that anybody could carry anywhere because the 2nd guarantees it, but I still can't see it telling the states what to do, only the Federal govt. If things go the way I don't want them to go though, I could see an executive order infringing upon the RKBA in the second term. That's the scariest thing to me right now. I can work under the law as it currently is. I just choose not to live where the right isn't allowed. Ps- got my CCW renewal letter in the mail today! Only $20 per year! I like that!

    Ah! But Coastie, voting rights to all ARE guaranteed by the Constitution but its left to the states as to how they want to handle it. Some Southern states are still monitored very closely because of a little disagreement back in the 1860's though. I'm on a stupid iPhone on lunch reak right now. I'll holler back tonight if I can. Ps- I agree that military, former military and law officers should always be allowed to carry though. That just seems like an earned right to me

    Who is John Galt?

    Part 2 of Atlas Shrugged came out yesterday. I've seen part 1 about 3 times so far and hope to see the new one tomorrow. Anybody else? Read the book yet? Long but really good and really prophetic.

    NOT AR vs. AK

    Texas Bill, If you get a chance, look for an old style EAA Witness in .45 acp. The older ones have a square slide. The newer ones have the corners shaved off. It handles just like a 1911, but it's a single/double action. Carry cocked and locked with safety on or hammer down with safety on or off. Holds 10+1 and it's the most accurate pistol I've ever shot. The butt seems big, but it fits my hand so perfect. Ergonomics! That's the word! Should run between $300-$400 used, maybe $500-600 new. But if you find the square slide, it'll probably be used.
  25. She was at the Memphis zoo, but that's been at least 10-12 years ago. Made the front page of the paper one Christmas. She convinced the giraffe to wear a Santa Claus hat. Her favorites were the penguins though. Got attacked by an ant eater and ended up with a staph infection in her shoulder. Guess the ant eaters are as bad as the ants sometime.
