Peeking in for a Poke.

@ Julie: Get well soon, I took My pills this morning including an antibiotics pill at 750mg, I've only had pneumonia once, but that was enough for Me, yuck!

It's my 6th pneumonia already *sigh* The doctor says I HAVE to quit smoking *sigh*

That would help a lot, I got My brother to quit smoking, He used the patch, larger one first, then go to smaller and smaller ones, to get you unhooked from nicotine. And not smoking anymore might save you some money too.

Easier said than done Vic, I've been smoking non-stop since I was 12...

You can try e-Cigs, Julie. Supposedly gives you the feeling that you are smoking; even though it's just vapor.

As I understand it, the deal with e-Cigs is you actually get the nicitine, but not the harmful smoke, not that nicotine is all that good for you. Some of my friends use e-Cigs, and they rave about the flavours they can get. I smoked pipe and cigars for 15 years in the Navy, both for strees relief and the pleasure of it, so I know.

My mother had a predisposition to pneumonia, plus she smoked for over 55 years. COPD put her on Oxygen for the last 11 years of her life, and that was what finally got her to quit.

Winning with clear lungs, but after 25 years, I still get the urge to light my pipe.

Thought you all would like to see a ship sailing on the mists of Avalon. Literally that is, as Avalon Beach is about 1km away the other side of the mist and Avalon Airport a couple of k's further around the bay.


Okay, now that's TWO Avalons I want to visit - one on Catalina Island, and one in Australia.

Thank you Donald. You are a very nice man.

I do what I can. I also have 3 semi-feral cats living in my yard, plus several neighborhood cats that visit regularly and dine at my kitty restaurant. Only one will come to me and let me rub her, but the others seem to recognize my voice, and will let me get within arm's length before they move away. So I know what Suzie is dealing with. Plus, her fundly page says she's an Army veteran, and we vets take care of our own.....

I am an Army veteran. I served 22 years. Retired in 1993.

Thank you, Donald!

About the same time I did - August 1993 - 20 years, 5 weeks. Was obligated out to 23 years, but got caught in the "Peace Dividend" / "end-of-the-Cold-War" drawdown.

I'd have contributed anyway, but being Comrades-in-Arms made it a no-brainer.

Bus driver smokes drugs at the wheel of a moving bus. :-O

http://www.news.com.au/national/nsw-act/bus-driver-shaun-murphy-smoked-drugs-at-the-wheel-court-hears/story-fnii5s3x-1227039261002

A DRIVER whose passenger bus slammed into a family home was captured on CCTV smoking synthetic cannabis while behind the wheel, a court heard yesterday.

Shaun Murphy “administered” synthetic cannabis 13 times from a green pipe before he crashed his bus into a Glenmore Park home on June 15, Penrith Local Court was told.

The 56-year-old Busways driver was allegedly filmed by the vehicle’s internal CCTV system steering the bus with his elbows and “at times he had no control of the steering wheel at all’’, a police statement of facts said.

How stupid can a person be when knowing of all the cameras installed on the buses over here these days?

Cheers.

He was smoking dope - 'nuff said

I thought 35612 was if a woman gives you "that look" do you:

You don't bother with A, B, or C, you just say, "Ok you've pulled, get your coat, your place or mine?"

Well, it was in the 60's .....

So they tell me .....

Seems I heard that a few times when I was out with some of my younger shipmates in Dunoon in 79-82. Myself, I declined more than a few offers from the Scots lassies - had a gal back in Charleston and didn't want to mess that up.

Oh look, it's about lunchtime.. I could do with a pint of red ale and a bacon cheeseburger, please. Thanks much.

I guess i've been fortunate. The few times I've had an AT&T PavBell tech out to my house, they were competent technicians and had fairly good customer-service skills. And more than happy to listen to what trouble-shooting I had already done.

And Suzie-Q I have no problem with your request in the Critter Cafe to help fund the medical treatment of the kittens you have found. In fact, I can think of no better venue to post it than a place where Critter People gather. I see that you set the "default" request to $35, and so with that Eric and I were happy to start off your campaign yesterday. Wishing you the best of success!

And now we are 3. Tried to donate Saturday evening (would have been first), but got the spinning pinwheel and a "Done but errors on page" message when I hit "Submit". Tried again today, got same result on both XP/IE-8 boxes. So I go try on one of my Mac G4s running Safari - and it goes right through. Go figure.

Late-night Sunday listening to jazz streaming from the local NPR station. Vinnie's playing a lot of piano jazz tonight. Soothing.

Reminds me of some of the stands we used for holding glassware and such in chem lab in high school and college.

Oh crap! Did I say that out loud?

0320 PDT - I slept through this one.

I was at Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo during the 1989 Loma Prieta quake. Real bucking bronco ride. American Canyon is about 1 mile north of there, and Napa is about a 10-15 minute drive north/northwest. Lovely area.

Damage and injury reports not real bad so far. Hope not too much damage to the wineries and brewries around there.

9 years ago today I attached my computers to seti and started looking for aliens.

That deserves a celebratory beverage.

Hmmmm. Seems I ran right through my own 12th anniversary here. Having too much fun, I guess.

(I hope the forum moderators don't mind my posting this. If
I've broken some rule, I apologize in advance.)

Angela has said repeatedly that nothing is off-topic in this thread, and as Mark points out, you are not shilling for a commercial endeavour, so you are okay as far as I can see.
