    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.

Did anyone else read that worldwide use of Spam has dropped 70% in recent months? Any ideas why? The experts...the Spam experts..are dumbfounded! And by use, I mean consumption. It might still be used for, um, other things.

Good luck to the Green Bay Packers!!! Too bad we have to listen to FOX TV announcers...The best thing about the game is usually the commercials, bought at the record high amount of $3 mil for a 30 second spot. Plenty of activities in Dallas TX today as The Pittsburgh Steelers go for a 7th football trophy. Speaking of FOX, did you catch the Bill O'Reilly grilling of President Obama in the White House?

Question: Does your DVD of Alpine suck? I "upgraded" my VHS to DVD some years ago. I don't remember my VHS being so crummy although it was nothing to cheer about. My DVD appears legit with the Monterey art that looks like others I have. The sound is good, but the images is blurry and the colors harsh. I realize it's not Hi Def but the quality of the picture is poor like it was shot on an 8mm camera. What's been your experience with this Vid??? Flame please...

Really? Any opinions out there on the prospects of hearing Bob perform an entire show naked, so to speak?

We were witness to a most inspiring and magical event last night in Madison, Wisconsin. Jackson Browne performed a solo acoustic set. One man, one voice and 20 acoustic guitars. this was not an ordinary event, with the songs you heard on the radio back in the day....but rather a momentous occasion of support for the things that matter most in the lives of everyman. He has a vision and a spirit that flows with most all of us, and the perseverance to travel across this great land and further the education of our society, through music, words...and the spirit behind which you cannot help but be drawn in, to a better life, on a better planet, in a better space. My hats off, and my immense respect, Jackson, for you vision, your communication, and most of all your tenaciousness, in making this a better planet for all of us.

A message from Neil Young..."2012 will that record companies release High Resolution Audio. This is huge for our industry. Since the advent of the CD, listeners have been deprived of the full experience of listening. The spirituality and soul of music is truly found when the sounds engulfs you, and that is just what 2012 will bring. It is a physical thing, a relief that you feel when artists and producers did when they created it in the studio. The sound engulfs you and your senses open up allowing you to truly feel the deep emotion of the music of some of our finest artists. From Frank Sinatra to the Black Keys, the feeling is there. This what Record companies were born to deliver and in 2012 they will." Inspiration. A wonderful thing.

So 19 of the many Islamofascists who want nothing more than to murder innocent Americans once again attacked the WTC on 9/11/01, and succeeded in killing thousands of our fellow citizens...Luckily your humble writer, altho it was a close call, was not a victim for a second time... Then, a few years later when I was posting on the DNC forum, and praising "W" for his efforts to keep us safe from those sick savages, my posts prompted numerous online attacks by DNC neo-libs ...They clearly didn't like "W", America, or me!!! It was at that time that I read many idiotic comments, including "W" was a complete failure based on the fact that the unemployment rate was hovering at around 5%, and he was sending troops into Iraq because the people there had "brown skin", etc.... Now, about six years later, unemployment is at about 9+%, and since coming into office Barry Obama is sending drones into the area, and has sent tens of thousands of troops into the Middle East to kill "brown skin people" in even more countries, including Libya, Yemen, etc.... SURPRISE!! SURPRISE!!! Not a peep from the "Deadheads For Obama", et al... Anyone care to take a wild guess as to the reason(s) why ?? If it wasn't so sick, it would be funny...

OR -- You lost somebody in the Gulf whom you're still grieving for. As somebody who has carefully followed your posts on dead.net, I'd say the last one seems like a cry for professional help. You're entited to your own opinions, but not your own facts. Try this fact:: Under "no controls' Dubya, Goldman got to Sec. Treas. Paulsen to bail out AIG who immediately made Goldman liquid on ALL it's hedges. Then Congress poured it on with unprecedented bailouts and now, 2 years later, we aren't in a great depression because of Obama (though we have cash-rich corps with human rights unwilling to invest in this country) -- despite of everything. You can't blame Obama unless you're willing to blot out 8 years of the Dubya, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice regime. I think you've broken with reality and need help. I urge you to seek it as soon as possible. If you are a vet, get help. If you're in a family situation with dysfunctional vet., get help!

Not quite, but it looks like Widespread Panic will be tomorrow, never seen them before so that should be good. The Primus show was hot and so was Mumford & Sons (another first).

I'm guessing it's in the state of Washington (Rainier?); I know it's not on the east coast of the USA, nor in West Virginia, which does have a few big mountains.
