  1. Sounds like the mods and admins are going to have their work cut out for them. If I'm reading this right, y'all will have to look deeply into threads/posts, etc. for hidden meanings, double entendres and the like. Good luck with that.
  2. Channeling Monty Python : "I didn't expect a kind of "Spanish Inquisition"....... But I got my own problem solved. Sometimes one has to go "out of town" to get what one needs. Thanks to all of you for the help
  3. I use the acronym to describe myself to lighten the mood if I happen to make a mistake, but as you think it important to point out that "CRS is the same kind of disease as being a special kind of stupid", I would be interested by you using that same adjective in front of someone else who has the disease or is someone's caregiver. You might try going to www.alz.org and post that first sentence as you did in your previous post.
  4. Going back to the OP..... I like to download documentaries from YouTube, but sometimes the opinion of the documentary will - like a train - jump its tracks and go off on a political tangent. Without naming the party, let me try to see if I can make you "detect" it on your own..... Re: The "party" thing - which party could it be? I admit it could be either one, but just for the sake of argument, I see what I am about to describe can be true for one or the other party, but just hang with me for a couple of minutes and maybe it will make sense to you. If not, MY feelings won't be hurt and I hope the same will be true on your end. 1. Let's say the documentary is about Egypt; the first inappropriate comment (nothing to do with pyramids) may or may not begin with the word "LIBERAL" and off we go! 2. Within the body of the thread, some well-meaning soul will try to bring our train back on course (Egypt and its pyramids, remember?), but to no avail. The first "malcontent" pops back in with another off-topic comment, but this time, he's "brought along" a companion who attempt to "strengthen" Mr. Inappropriate's comment (about the Liberates) with the phrase "Well said!".......and now we're on a "roll" and the original subject is lost with some very creative wording and the OP is wondering just where he or she "lost control". He also is hoping his "Significant Other" isn't following the thread, because even though he's trying valiantly to defend his position he did not prepare for this. 4. Our "train" has now arrived in Bremen - original destination Villa Rica and our intrepid OP has decided to just join the now full-blown battle over which party is dominant, and as Nefertiti and Akhenaten (Remember them? Egypt? The pyramids?) look on with great amusement, the train finally runs off the tracks leaving "diplomacy" sitting on the bench and from within the loud cacophony of voices, one can hear the phrase which will end this "conflict" and which has become the "catch phrase" ever since Sam Elliott used it in the film "The Big Lebowski".......... "You must be a SPECIAL kind of Stupid!" If for some reason this doesn't make sense to you (or others), you're in good company. I have "CRS Disease" and sooner or later, maybe it will "hit" you!
  5. Nothing changed for us except we got poorer, but I guess that's true for all/most of us, right? Thanks for the input! C R
  6. "..........One Fell Swoop!" (gotta look that phrase up one day) instead of making monthly payments which you may heretofore been making? Yep, that's what is happening with our plan. Okay. I kinda get it, but wait! There's more! 1. Their offices are pulling out of Georgia and are moving to their HQ in Nashville, So I guess they have a right to do that even though that's going to put a hell of a lot of people into a sudden bind - especially if they HAVE comprehensive coverage and are living on a tight budget. [Caveat: This may not affect you, so don't panic (yet). It sounds like business as usual depending on your (and my) circumstances: The company moving back to their HQ, etc.] 2. And as if this weren't enough, our agent tells me we can stay with him. Just let him do some "'figgerin'". Okay. Go run the numbers. In half an hour, he calls me back and tells me I don't have to pay a whole six months all at one, but my monthly rate will go from $142.00 to $262,00 per month. ::::: SPHINCTER!!!! Don't turn loose on me NOW!!!!! You hear me???? Don't you DO DO it!!:::: Seriously though, I'll be making a a call a little later this morning to the State Insurance Commish's office and will report what I find out,. Meanwhile, if you have a similar story, maybe you'll share it with us. Thanks! Q

  8. Okay. It was "Greyed" out next to the quote/multi-quote buttons. About that continuing: My problem is hitting "writer's block" and then never going back to the story, so I never promise anything. PS: There should be a another "short" story (maybe under my other name) about the "Hootoos" and the "Tootsies").
  9. If Google's "Business Model" is the same as other major companies', they won't rehire Marissa Mayer. Why sink more money benefits/bonuses, etc. into someone who's left your employ once already? Of course Google isn't really known for the "normal" way of doing business, are they?
  10. What happened to the edit function? I need to change some things up there.
  11. A “Martian” Tale After the landing of Orion and the building of several habitats, 4 intrepid Explorer/Astronauts decided to check out the “neighborhood”. After about 2 miles, and just before giving up, they encounter a group of biped beings. These, with some modifications are what we on Earth call “Greys” or being that this is their home planet, “Martians”. “Greetings, Martians”, said Colonel Fife, who looked and acted like Don Knotts of Mayberry. “We come in pea-----“ “What’d you just call me???” said the first of the beings, most likely the leader of the two males and two females – the latter with some modifications of their own. “Ummmmm, you mean, Mar----“, began the colonel and receiving a very stern look, and now some angry muttering from all of them, decided to stop there . “And how is it you understand our language?”, he went on, and deciding that discretion is the better part of valor, omitted the words “you Martians” from that sentence. “We’ve known your languages since the times you were just grunting the words out. My name is Gleep and the reason we didn’t kill you where you stand is because we’re curious as to what makes you humans so stupid.” “For instance, here on our planet Boobiedoobie, a “martian” is a pile of what you call cheeze and I took a martian just this morning”, said Gleep. “So watch it”, he said. “Others may not be as forgiving as I am”. “Why is your planet called ‘Boobiedoobie?’ “, asked Fife. Sighing in exasperation, Gleep, said “Take a look at our two females. How many boobs do they have?” “Umm, two in front and two in back”, replied Fife. “And what’s that sticking out of all our mouths, smoking and tip glowing?” “Oh.” “Yeah. ‘Oh’ .” “What’s that box with the 4 round things on the bottom?”, asked Gleep. “That’s how we get around – it’s called a Rover”, replied the Science Officer, whose name is P. Ubby. “That’s how we get around.”, he said again - sheepishly. “No hovercraft?” “Not yet. We thought we were doing good just getting here.” “From your planet called – how do you say it – Uuuuurth??" “Well, yeah.”, replied Fife, not wanting to get into semantics. ‘That’s not what we call it”, said one of the lady Boobiedoobians.. “Oh?” “No. We call it ‘Wop-babaloo-bop”. We heard it being transmitted into our quadrant from a time numbered 1959, so we thought that’s what you were trying to tell us." “Hey, Fife!”, said Gleep. “You look like you need to take a martian!” ###
  12. An Amish wife returns home from grocery shopping (Okay, I know they probably don't go alone in the horse and buggy, but it's my joke. )....... "I got pulled over by a police officer today, Aaron", she tells her husband. "Whatever for ?", he asks. "That sign on the back of the buggy (that's probably not what they call it - carriage maybe?) was coming loose and was about to fall off, but the police officer was nice enough to put it back on properly. But then he noticed the reins across ol' Sundown's rear end and took me to task." "Ma'am, the reins for your horse are wrapped around his testicles and that constitutes animal cruelty. Can you explain this?", asked the officer. 'So what'd you tell him?", asked her husband. "I told him what you told me", she said. "That it's the emergency brake."
