Mestigoit de Huron - Where you from sa's?




Jesus de Utah - A later day.



Hear me now and believe me later, it's not the stuff that I was looking for, it's just the stuff I found.

BTW, does anybody remember the name of the cop they killed up at Lake Arrowhead? Was it Lake Arrowhead or was it Big Bear? Where were his ashes spread?


"In bearing testimony of Jesus Christ, President Hinckley spoke of those outside the Church who say Latter-day Saints 'do not believe in the traditional Christ.' 'No, I don't. The traditional Christ of whom they speak is not the Christ of whom I speak. For the Christ of whom I speak has been revealed in this the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times. He together with His Father, appeared to the boy Joseph Smith in the year 1820, and when Joseph left the grove that day, he knew more of the nature of God than all the learned ministers of the gospel of the ages.'" (LDS Church News Week ending June 20, 1998, p. 7).

hey there say, zBrown... thanks...

say, i am on netzero, and they do have a DSL, but when i wrote to them, they said they do not have it for my area, :O

yep, i am lower pin, not upper... there may be DSL for other
companies, but i cannot afford them...

i only pay a penny under ten bucks a month... i pay like? 54?
or so, every six months... then, if i have barely any money for the month,
i do NOT get 'kicked out' for not being able to pay... i have six months to
save up to pay the bill... :)

so in a way, i reckon i get what i pay for, but i am just thanksful to have anything at all...

trouble is, everthing is UPDATING and 'more fancey' etc, so it never works
anymore as well, :(



not sure what i will do, but most likley, sooner or later, i will just post
as much, it has been stalling very bad...

but--this might be due to my brower?? speed or something being wrong, i keep getting 'time out' notices... :(


well, go to sleep now...
god bless to all...

Kellogg's PEP sponsored the series and included many giveaways in the promotion of the show, such as Space Cadet goggles and Space Cadet character cutouts on the back of PEP cereal boxes. Many times the actors would step out of the shows action to proclaim the merits of PEP cereals, even using the Space Academy as a backdrop to plug the giveaways associated with the cereal. These plugs were incorporated into the story lines, such as the aforementioned space goggles. The goggles were used by Dr. Dale in the lab, Astro used the goggles while on duty on the power deck and Roger needed the goggles to keep down the glare from the radar deck.

First you are a cadet.

The bottom line is that even though the skull's highly unusual characteristics demand an open-minded approach to it, mainstream science will reject it outright until forced by DNA evidence to do otherwise. Indeed, it could turn out to be nothing more than a butt-ugly kid with an extraordinary combination of cranial deformities never seen before. But it could also have been the result of a human-alien union, or an outright alien with no connection to humanity at all.

Only time and testing will tell which possibility is correct.

Scrabble Report:

MFM McKicked butts.

My first play was "LOADERS" with a blank "L". 68!

Then three plays later, Maurice dropped out, Marcel and I split his points (rounding up first) and dumped his letters in the bag.

Then on the next turn, I scored a second Bingo with "CLATTERS" using a blank again on "C." We take up any blanks and re-use them (house rules) if we have the letter it represents. I took up the blank from "LOADERS," replacing it with an "L" from my rack to make this play. 61!

When I had my third bingo, Marcel conceded.

Final: MFM 272. Marcel 157.

Boomer used to get home, mix a martini, and "regale" anyone in earshot with his latest round on the golf course, complete with betting outcomes and numbers of putts, chip-ins, and drinks consumed in the clubhouse, along with the recap of the dice games played to see who paid for the drinks!

why don't you forget that and toke on this? Like that ever happened.

It was on the return trip to my friend Bruce's from a golf game that Bruce took out a joint and lit it with Boomer and myself in the car. I was shotgun. Boomer didn't appreciate the move and said so. It was Bruce's car. Feathers were ruffled, let's just say.

It wasn't something you forget, a confrontation between righteous indignation on one side and urbane disregard for convention on the other. The two views are not compatible, and we all know this, but still we stumble along and have for years and probably will for many more in a society which constantly re-invents itself daily based on TV reports of what we did today. This is called being "hip," or "with it." It's based on someone else's view, not or own.

Bruce valued his hipness. Dad valued his righteousness. I smirked and never bothered to say anything to Dad on a voluntary basis. It was a source of humor between Bruce and myself. Some things you just don't feel right talking about, especially with an uptight parent, so why discuss them? They are better left in the vault.

Yet it might be nice if parents bothered to educate their kids in a manner conducive to inquiry and focus on tasks at hand.

4. Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls

5. Sholem Asch, The Nazarene

8. John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

9. Louis Bromfield, Night in Bombay

10. Nina Fedorova, The Family

I have read the obvious two from this list, Grapes of Wrath and FWTBT. I got lots from them when I read them, but the real good came later.

"Nothing really has much meaning until it lives within us for a length of time."--Patrick Oliver Ament

I have a copy of How Green Was My Valley and plan to read it this year. Sounds like a climbing title.

Ii's a pensive mood I find I occupy. I need to get out of the house a while.

I have a special use for pumice, myself, Beavis. Heh, heh.

This is the Pumice Mine Ranch at Snelling.

Stinky Mouse Man owned part of it.

Padraig Uther Mann-Mize, a former associate of the Gangs of Los Banos, found himself in possession of the deed to the mine after an all-night poker game at Knights Ferry. He later sold parts off to interested parties.

Then, when he ran out of parts, he sold the holes in his thinking, which were filled with troubadours.

Something will kill you, guaranteed. Could be a finger infection. Could be the wrong inflection, spoken to the wrong guy, and you're just seeking direction. Maybe you'll make your genuflection on your bad knee and you'll stumble...when you rise you're dead. Maybe you've had your last erection. If you haven't, I hope you die in your bed. Cuz somethin's gonna kill ya, someday you'll be among the dead.

The physical relief of saving a guitar from imminent displacement to Mt. Merced, the landfill, is indescribable; and I fretted over the telling of it; but, quite simply, I felt like Jesus' son reaching out for this poor immigrant, this El Kabong of the Closet of First-Refusal. It came to me with no strings, no bargaining, just acceptance on each of our parts for the other.

The rock was a no-brainer, really. No heavy metal needed, just soothing hard rock.

By the Way, the California relief map ca. 1990, is for sale. It will be on display at the Facelift this month. I'm gonna set up in Old Yeller Pines in the Red Roadent. Maps, facts, art and artifacts.

SOLO NAPOLEON ON AN ISTHMUS

A dangerous place to find oneself
After living alone
For so many years.

Better to find rocks in my head
Than da-dump da-dump in my bed.
So go conquering instead.
And then have some friendly beers

THE NEVER-ENDING SONG

Love is a song that never ends
Life may be swift and fleeting
Hope may die yet love's beautiful music
Comes each day like the dawn

Love is a song that never ends
One simple theme repeating
Like the voice of a heavenly choir
Love's sweet music flows on


Your gentle hand reached out to comfort me. Then came the dawn. And you were gone. You were gone, gone, gone. I had too much to dream last night.

Reach out and conquer this, lads!
