Go Ahead, Show Off a Little...

Here's the bulletin board/virtual refrigerator door/etc. for showing and telling about accomplishments you're proud of. Your art. Your graduation. Your promotion. The garden you just planted. Your kid's karate trophy. You get the idea...

I believe a clue as to the inklings of said instance of canis canidae was available vis his general reaction to Badger approaching the CD player.

Never trust an ungrateful dog.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

yes,i think youre right.But its not only the net its the wholle vrtual reality created by the media,the moviemakers even advertising.everywhere you see things happening which in reality would kill every bystander.but,modernday technologie doesnt let die nobody so easily.they rush him(with5gunshot wounds,a broken skull and ebola)into the emrgency room.Dr.somehow gives him a good shoot of defibrilator,and the happy sucker is rady to go home.no wonder that many people today think that you can fall down from standing and it will only ruin your haircut.they do not understand that this ruined haircut has to be redone-i,c.of seizures for 30%of the victims-in a funeral home.sad bud true ! Peace

To Frankly about seisures

The last time I saw someone having a Seisure there were already 3 people helping out, but you would expect that at Earthdance, the time before that was in High School, my friend Tim had them and he was 6' 1" and I am all about 5'4" trying to catch him hurt. Out of our whole group that day I was the only one who tried to break his fall, I had been thru it with him before so I knew what was going on. So it was easy for me to jump in and help.
It is a sad time for humanity, comraderie and looking out for your fellow man has fallen by the wayside. I feel it is because of the wonders of the internet. You no longer have to face someone to talk to them, therfore no one understands what is going on in reality, like someone having a seisure, or someone in medical need. You can read all you want but experience is where it is really at.

Marriage

Well after one and a half years my boyfriend Steven Miller proposed to me Dec. 8 2007 at a Cubensis show with Kofi Baker Band (if you get the chance to see either band DO IT they are grate!) at the Malibu Inn.
Anyway....we went to dinner at the Charthouse right on the beach. Steve kept trying to drag me down to the beach for a walk, we were in the midst of STORM WATCH a few light clouds with scattered sprinkles. So needless to say it was cold and windy I wanted no part of walking on the beach that night. Off to the show we went, little did I know that Steve had the ring in his pocket this whole time.
We set up our shirts for the band and had our little corner of the place and all during the show Steve was a little jumpy, finally when it was Cubensis's set he asked me to go outside with him, we get to the door and he freaks out, It RAINED he says. I am clueless so I say well we are on storm watch after all, then we walk out to the truck and get in for our imbibement for the moment. When we are done (still sitting in the truck) he turns to me and says.
I have been thinking and I want to spend the rest of my life with you, I say you have got to be kidding am I really worth all that. He says yes and I can prove it, reaches into his pocket and extends his hand to me with a jewelry box in it. When he opened it I wanted to cry, but trying to be strong I say you really don't mean that, and he says I sure do what is your answer.
I say there is no reason to say no! Yes I will marry you!
We have set the date for April 26, 2008!.
Thank you for reading this I am still excited about it cause I only want to do this once!
Steve is the one for me. We met at a Cubensis and Jerry Garcia Band show at 14 Below in Santa Monica, CA. The rest as they say is history or in my case herstory!
Have a Grateful Day everyone.

scary

since about 10 years ago i started having epileptic seizures,and having had a lot of them i know how it looks like when somebody else starts..!in fact i was in an office waiting for my turn in a room full of people.beside me was an old man who suddenly startetd turning his eyes and to move strangely.the room was crowded with people but everybody just stared..so i went up to this man because i knew he will fall down.and thet happened within seconds,i just could grab him and lay him down in a secure position.With30 people staring at me.after 15 minutes the ambulance came and to my horror started treating the old guy like a drunkard.i told them he was shaking,had cramps..but no interest,just everybody staring quitely.a few days later i met the officemanager who told me that if i wouldnt have helped this old man and he had fallen down it might have killed him.but since this day i still remember this staring people...why so few humans are willing to help their fellow being in need?

thanks

thanks for the therapeutic feedback Iknowurider, Marye, Frankly.

Its true about that feeling of helplessness! And when combined with crushing guilt it ain't fun!

Now the dog is acting like nothing happened, I am shattered and covered in mud, blood and sweat, but mighty relieved!!

Got some presents to wrap now :-)
