    Hm, I see what you mean
    I think since most of us have our pages broken up so we're not seeing posts from 2010 and the formatting thereof, it's not such an issue, but I also think that since this topic has been running for three years it's about time to roll the darn thing into a new version anyway. Stay tuned.

    Thank you, marye
    You're right. I had my options set at 300 posts per page, changed it to 10, and now it looks fine. Thanks again.

    I think it's just you
    although it may be a function of how many posts you're choosing to display on a page. I'll go take a look at cc's post of 9/30/2010 and see if anything's odd.

    Hey, is it just me, or does this page not display correctly? The post boxes seem much narrower here than in other discussions. Did someone not close a < table > tag? < edit > It looks like all the posts since September 30, 2010 are nested as replies under c_c's post on that date.

    Gotta love LDS missionaries
    They are always young and enthusiastic and well dressed and educated. I like them better than Hare Krishnas or Jehovah's Witnesses, which I don't see around anymore. Moonies either. Ocho freaks are gone too. Ohh well, guess we're stuck LDSers and other minor cults. I don't mind giving them a drink and discussing their cosmology with them. Their version of world history is like a Disney movie! But, you know, whatever you want to believe. More freedom to you.

    Mormons, Lilly. Sorry about that. I'm partial to referring to them as LDS, since it somewhat dyslexically resembles one of my favorite acronyms. I thought about asking them about Romney and the Etch-A-Sketch uproar, but I was feeling pretty mellow at the time and didn't want to get into with them, politically.

    Last Night
    I live in the mountains of southern California and at dusk last night, Jupiter was visible just above the horizon, Venus was higher in the sky and the Moon hung above them both. I was standing out on my front porch taking it in when a couple of LDS missionaries walked up and asked me how I was doing. I told them that it was a good night to be pondering the infinite and when they tried to work that idea into the introduction of their spiel, I told them that the visible heavens were enough for me and wished them a fine evening.

I used to have some pants that color. They were about as uncomfortable as the ones in that photo look, too.

Judging by the blistering show and the great family scene at Rochester, this is gonna be a hot summer tour... If you're in the East, now is the time to get out and hear the band. See you at ArtPark!

have a nice show! Anyways, I spent Monday night peakin' on top of Bolan Mountain that caps out at 6,242 ft. It's in the Siskiyou National Forest in Oregon a mile and a half from the California line. It has a nice view of the ocean 40 miles to the west, a great view of 14,162 ft. Mt. Shasta 70 miles to the south-east, and Preston Peak dominates a dozen or so miles to the south-west. Had to hike a mile to get to the top, there's a road to the top but the last hundred yards run along a cliff on the north side and was still buried under snowdrifts 10 ft. high and more. There's a nice lake down below with a forest service campground. I didn't see any other tracks in the snow on the way up and the road there had just opened up. If you are ever on the road between Happy Camp, Ca. and O'Brien, OR. be sure to check it out. By Tuesday afternoon we had made it to a beautiful flower-filled meadow on the banks of Hurdy-Gurdy Creek in the Smith River National Recreation Area where we listened to the show. The highlights for me were Reuben and Cherise, New Speedway Boogie, and Lost Sailor,almost thought I'd change my name to starsailor.

A very high energy sprint to finish the 12th Stage from Sisteron to Bourg -les Valence today. Some head-butts from Renshaw to Farrar ensuring Cavendish the stage win.These riders are really something to watch! I'm pulling for Levi Leipheimer to catch-up with Contador and the yellow jersey on Andy Schleck. I keep looking for CB, cheering the riders on along the side of the road.

not me..I've got the VIP package with the helicopter, the Michelin 3 star lunch, the champagne and the supermodel. Go Cavendish. Renshaw was a bit naughty today I admit.

..has been incredible. Our TV channel, Versus, has been airing the race with ground and helicopter videos in high-definition: I may have to plan a trip over next year! I do not speak or understand French, so that will be something I'll pursue. Years ago, in and west of Boulder CO, I was a motorcycle escort for the Red Zinger classic....

It is a great advertisement for the French landscape (after they leave the 'Hell of the North'). We had a lot of rain in June which has kept the South very green and beautiful this year. Today's stage up to Mende in the Massif Central should be spectacular. The 2011 route is not announced yet. A lot of people ride the route each year a few days in advance of the real tour: so get training Ted and TL! It's a fascinating tour this year. Armstrong has been plagued with bad luck and you might forgive him for dropping out...but he is hanging in there to help his team. Cavendish is so talented but everyone hates him, even more so after his aussie sidekick's headbutting antics yesterday. Cav needs a new lead out man now and the other teams are sure to harass him mercilessly now. The real struggle will be Schleck vs Contador in the Pyrenees; there are going to be some real battles up there on the slopes.

Alberto really showed some strength and durability today, reaching for the stage 12 win but being edged out by Oliver Rodriguez. Astana is still 14 minutes back, but for how much longer? "She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff..."

Jesus, John Muir, and Jerry Garcia have been the 3 biggest influences in my life. Without Jerry I probably never have learned how to play guitar, and being able to play love songs for God, not the Devil, means a lot. John Muir was my wilderness guru and his writings led me to Mt. Shasta and from there I found the beautiful place I live today. Jesus brought love to my heart and helped me deal with the hell I've had to live with everyday for almost the past 30 years. Without Jesus I may have become so embittered and full of hate that I could have ended up like one of those people who snap like we saw on the news yesterday. God bless you all and happy Jerry week!

Or does it seem odd that a new featured product on this site (the Warner vinyl box) doesn't have any way to post comments? New strategy to ward off our constant whining about the music for sale here?

(the one on the homepage concerning the vinyl) it goes directly to the store item. If you're talking about something else, send me the link and I'll look into it.

That goes directly to the store. Just felt like we were missing out on weeks of entertaining discussion without a comments section at the bottom of the product description, as we see with most all of the music releases. Given that it's not something new, as such, just repackaged and quite pricy vinyl reissues, maybe that's the reason?
