Happy Mother's Day





From:     Mij     5/8/2005     7:58 A.M.

Hello, and happy Mothers Day to all. That was a nice post
Ted...although I'm still clicking here..

My sister started a couple weeks ago planning a surprise
80th birthday party for mom for yesterday. The Eaton's
keeping the lid on anything for more than ten minutes is
call for an appearance on Ripley's believe it or not, so
two weeks seemed about as likely as MB learning to talk.
Anyway, I digress..so yesterday about noon, my sister and
Cindy, a longtime friend and like another sister, took mom
to lunch. As soon as they left, the Grandkids from up north
and all the family from here and many close friends came
over. balloons and party tape were strung, food prepared,
etc., and the house was instantly transformed...also, all
the cars were parked in the back out of sight ( I'm still
not sure how that was pulled off! )
needless to say when they got back from lunch she was
completely surprised and amazed. Lot's of good food, good
tokes, and good friends and family, not to mention some
really nice gifts...in fact, I told mom she should turn 80
again in a couple weeks!..
A very nice day for a very nice Mom.

Hope your Mother's Day is filled with joy and happiness.

Peace.

Here's something that was buried on page 14A in the Denver Post this morning. Ah - but the story about pitbulls was on the front page.

Washington - A highly classified British memo, leaked during Britain's recent election campaign, indicates that President Bush had decided to overthrow Iraqi President Saddam Hussein by the summer of 2002 and was determined to ensure that U.S. intelligence data supported his policy.

The document, which summarizes a July 23, 2002, meeting of British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Blair's top security advisers, reports on a visit to Washington by the head of Britain's MI-6 intelligence service.

The visit took place while the Bush administration was still declaring to the American public that no decision had been made to go to war.

to everyone who has too much time on their hands and wants
to keep up on the latest liberal viewpoints/news/etc...

DailyKos

the name of the guy who started the blog is markos... which
got shortened to "kos" when he was in the military...
apparently he always disliked being called mark... don't
know why...

i have found that things hit here before i see them in
the newspapers... tv... etc...

as with all blogs (all media for that matter) you have
to take things with a grain of salt... but lots of
opinions are expressed...

enjoy...





From:     eugene     5/12/105     11:23 A.M.

re: denver post article...

the reason i put the information on about daily kos is that
i saw the same information there about a week earlier... it
had been reported in england... it is still not making many
waves in US MSM (main stream media)... the fourth estate has
really fallen down on the job... so much is not reported...
and all the news outlets seem to be only interested in the
gossip items... increases circulation and ratings i guess...
plus an uninformed public is much easier to manipulate...
what more could a government ask for...

europeans are shocked when the are exposed to our media...
both at the lack of meaningful content and the nearly
complete support for the party line... they wonder what has
happened here... so do i...

I quit wondering a long time ago...The average American is
caught up in such narrowminded views and lifestyles we've
gone from free thinking open mindedness to a narrow little
tunnel of thought..War, weightloss, and who Jennifer Lopez
is fucking.
I just came back from town and a lady in front of me who was
driving ridicuously slow and was endangering everyone else
on the road had stickers plastered all over her car.
The biggest one read "are you following Jesus as closely?
Another said "The Bible should be the preferred book in our
schools over all other books"..
What do you say to that kind of mentality? There's nothing
I know of that could penetrate that kind of thickness except
for my car!...

Does that help with your question Eugene?

From:     stan     5/25/2005     11:27 A.M.

Just for the hell of it I'm including my latest commentary... it's a short one

They・re Getting Desperate

According to our leading, pResidential, quintessential chicken hawk, our chief thief in residence, insurgent attacks in Iraq are increasing because the bad guys are getting desperate. They know the US is making great progress so they・re going all out to make trouble. I guess we・ll know we・ve won when their desperation leads to so many attacks that the US is driven right out of their country. While I personally would not refer to that as victory, that is unquestionably the only possible outcome.

The latest concerted military effort in Baghdad has been to secure the highway between the Green Zone and the airport; all of 6 miles (9 kilometers) away. Actually, this is a good idea since a taxi ride between those two destinations now costs $35,000, and it・s a bargain at that. It takes a bevy of .private security contractors・, aka mercenaries V who are paid as much as a thousand bucks a day V who man a convoy of fantastically expensive armored vehicles; all of which are necessary to complete the trip in one piece.

Securing the road involves one or another of the Pentagon・s .hearts and minds・ initiatives, which generally comes in the form of breaking down the doors of innocent Iraqi homes, chosen at random, in the middle of the night, and grabbing, also at random, suspicious young men who are then hauled off to America・s version of re-education camps where they are systematically abused and or tortured.

This is actually another part of our misunderestimated leader・s crusade against those pesky Muslim terrorist heathen. We didn・t want to fight them in the streets of New York so we・ve gathered them, like a big magnet, from all over the world, into Iraq, where, after somehow failing to secure the peace by fighting them as individuals, we can make them really desperate by bombing whole cities into rubble.

And those Iraqis can be really ungrateful at times. The people of Qi・am, on the border of Syria, where the Pentagon just reported the killing of a nice round number of 100 insurgents, (I thought we didn・t do body counts? Oh, right, that only applies to civilians) actually notified the occupier that the fighters were there. They really didn・t want them around. But then, ingrates that they are, they complained when the US brought its tanks and howitzers into their dense urban neighborhoods.

What good is an army without its big guns? So what if a few dozen houses and an occasional sorry-assed civilian were blasted to smithereens? Fighting insurgents is serious business. Wamby-pamby, wimped-out, liberal do-gooders do not win serious terrorist wars. Only a tried-and-true born again Christian, who has the explicit backing of the Big Guy upstairs, can steer the world in the proper direction.

I know some of you are greeting that last statement with a touch of skepticism, but look, if the Intelligent Designer hadn・t wanted monkey boy to be president, why did He make it so easy for his minions to steal two consecutive elections? That is no mean feat. So get over it: ours is not to question why, ours is but to barf and cry. Besides, one could argue that the fun is just beginning, so buck up, it can only get worseK before it gets better.

I just looked at one of my weather sites and they've issued
a special weather statement for southwest Oregon and N.
California for later today and again for tomorrow. Chance
for strong thunderstorms...heavy rain, strong winds and
hail. We usually have too much coastal influence in these
situations to get a storm, but the Rogue Valley is a good
target..including the Williams area Jim, so You may see some
fireworks the next couple of days...

The hail with you!

So much for my weather forecast.

Hi Kelsey!....disappointed? Do I look like David Mijerman

Good to hear from you Kelsey! I'll send some inanities that

rain..everything you'd want in a storm without all the
calories! but seriously, lightning started about 9.00 last
night and then about 1.00am it got down to some real real
serious shit. I sat on my girlfriend's porch and watched it
come right over the valley, doing the ol' count after each
flash. At one point it was almost constant lightning and
thunder! It rained pretty good too.....just about the best
thunderstorm i've witnessed here in our little valley. I
give it a 8.5 on the Mijster scale!
You must have had quite a show also, huh Jim?

You know Ted, a guy who was good with putting words together
and coming up with stupid non-words would probably see your
"Not so Webmaster" and come up with something like....
hmmmm....let's see...how 'bout...."Webnotster"?

Anyway, that's what some jerk might do, but not me....

Speaking of complete lying morons, I saw MB on the tube this
morning. My not-so-digested pancakes almost made a return
appearence in a not-so-pleasant way....

Oh well, at least there's people like this I can be glad
I'm not..

-In Wasilla, Alaska, Niccolo Rossodivita, 62, shot Billy
Cordova, 40, twice in the chest after Cordova followed him
around their house prolonging their argument over Jesus
Christ's correct name.
( Jesus! )

-A British man whose car kept stalling took it to a
mechanic who found that a squirrel had hidden over 2000
acorns in the air filter.
( That's a corny story. )

-"Thou shalt not"...
Twelve American nuns were suspended from their convent after
going on an "alcohol and sex-filled holiday". The nuns, all
between 22 and 31, said they wanted to "experience sin".
They went on the holiday without telling anyone where they
were going. It's been claimed by one of the nuns that they
slept with over 40 men between them over the weekend.
( The convent said they'll have nun of that. )

Keeping with the faith...

On the heels of the Virgin Mary grilled cheese sandwich
which sold on E-Bay for $28,000, an Ontario man has offered
up a "Jesus Fishstick" for the bidding.
( I swear I just saw John Lennon in my Sphagetti! )

or was it Yoko...

In other news:
-In Hungary, a campaign to outlaw blonde jokes turned
violent when a group of blondes protesting outside a bar
that used dumb blonde jokes as promotions threw cakes and
eggs at the windows, breaking them and causing chaos in
the building. They also waved banners urging their "blonde
sisters" working there to go on strike.
( What do you call a blonde......)

Keeping with the faith....

-The Christmas parade of boats in Syracuse, NY, earlier this
year was marred when a female participant on one of the
children's parade exhibits pulled down the pants of a man on
board and began spanking his ass.
( Why can't that happen in our stupid parade? )

Peace.`








From:     Ted     5/31/2005     8:44 P.M.

The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington

chemistry mid-term. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the

professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of

course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.



Bonus Question:

Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?



Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law

(gas cools off when it expands and heats up when it is compressed) or

some variant.



One student, however, wrote the following:



"First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we

need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and the rate they are

leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to

Hell, it will not leave.



Therefore, no souls are leaving.



As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different

religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state

that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell.

Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not

belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to

Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number

of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.



Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's



Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to

stay

the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are

added.



This gives two possibilities:



1) If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls

enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase

until all Hell breaks loose.



2) If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in

Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes

over.



So which is it?



If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman

year, "....that it will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you",

and take into account the fact that I still have not succeeded in having

an affair with her. Then #2 above cannot be true, and thus I am sure

that Hell is exothermic and will not freeze over."



THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A".






From:     Mij     6/1/2005     7:11 A.M.

Maybe hell is heaven spelled with two ells
And the people who are sent there cannot spell
So therefore they know not where they dwell

One could try a computer, their brand new Dell
Look up the info in that bottomless well
Even then it could be hard to tell
And you'd end up saying, "oh well, what the hell"!

But the truth isn't hard, in fact it's quite easy
Because hell has this devil dude that's mean and sleazy
After pondering that fact, you won't jump for joy
Because the devil would be none other than good ol' MB.
Aaahh, the hell with it!

Later.

Sitting here "spinning" some tunes. Hard to believe these
albums, most of them anyway, still play...a few scratches
and skips, kinda like life itself..

Let's see, we played: ELO, Bob Dylan, Loverboy, Joe Satriani
Paul Simon, Stone Ponies, Badfinger, Dire Straits, Poco,
Steve Miller.

Any requests?


You got it, I'll put it on in short order. But while your
waiting..

-In County Cork, Ireland, in December, Dane Ring, 13, was
supended from school for two days after admitting that he
was the one who passed gas in a crowded classroom.
( where was he suppose to pass it, in Nigeria? )

-At a Junior high in Clovis, NM, police were called and the
school was put on lockdown after someone reported seeing a
student enter with a large, suspiciously concealed item
under his coat. An investigation revealed it was a huge
burrito.
( Instead of the school bell, he heard a Taco Bell. )

-In Aberdeen, Wash, fourth-grader Tyler Stoken was suspended
for one week in May because he refused to compose a short
essay on "what would happen if, one day at school, you see
your principle flying by a window." Tyler said he thought
that anything he wrote would be making fun of the principle.
( Ahh, shut up and write something you little shit! )

-A project by the students at the University of Nebraska to
raise awareness of the plight of the homeless by living
homeless for a week was canceled because of rain.
( just like the real homeless do )

Hope you enjoy your requests..

Scrabble-time. Later.

Three Doctors were playing golf together and discussing surgeries they
had performed.

The first one said, "I'm the best surgeon in Texas. A concert pianist lost
seven fingers in an accident, I reattached them, and eight months later he
performed a private concert for the Queen of England."

The second doctor said, "That's nothing. A young man lost both arms
and legs in an accident, I reattached them, and two years later he won
a gold medal in field events in the Olympics."

The third surgeon said, "You guys are amateurs. Several years ago a
cowboy who was high on cocaine and alcohol rode a horse head-on into a
train traveling 80 miles an hour. All I had left to work with was the
horse's ass and a cowboy hat. Now he's president of the United

Heres an interesting article on Michelangelo and hidden codes.
Here's my theory if you're interested. I believe that intelligence or consciousness is an entity unto itself, and that everything in existence is an aspect or expression of it. It's far more alive, aware, and present than most folks think...in fact it IS life, awareness, presence.

On one level Michelangelo, DaVinci, (as well as other artists, poets, playwrights, engineers) are expressing what for them are insights. They may even hide secret messages...but on a deeper level, intelligence as a single, omnipresent force is doing all of it...and is hiding messages even deeper than what the individual agent may think they are hiding. But hiding is a human concept, at the deeper levels nothing is hidden. Often times I sit back in humble awe at what this force is creating through all of us, without our even knowing in large part.

all give him "the FINGER"--that will make us all feel
good and then we can enjoy these really corny jokes--
their so bad, they are funny--



Here are the 10 first place winners in the International Pun Contest--



1. A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons.
The stewardess looks at him and says "I'm sorry sir, only one carrion allowed per passenger!"



2. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. The one turns to the other and says "DAM!"



3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.



4. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says "I've lost my electron"
The other says "are you sure?" The first replies "yes, I'm positive".



5. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novacain during a root canal? His goal: Transcend dental medication.



6. A group of chess entusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament vitories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why?" they asked, as they moved off. "Because", he said, "I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer".



7. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal" The other goes to a family in Spain: they name him "Juan" Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal: Her husband responds, "they're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal".



8. Three friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened a small florist shop to raise funds. Since eveyone like to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not.


He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close shop. Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that only "Hugh can prevent florist friars".



9. Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him...(Oh, man, this is so bad, it's good)...A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.



10. And finally, there was the person who sent ten different puns to his friends with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh: No pun in ten did.

Well, Bush is at his lying self again in his speech
last night--What a sorry rehash of his failed policies
in Iraq that speech was--it hurt my ears to listen to him--
He mentioned 9/11 many times last night as one of the reasons we are in Iraq bombing the hell out of that poor
country--the man has no shame whatsoever--it is a direct
lie and he does know that--Iraq was no threat to our security then and they are in no way a threat to our security now--and the coward Mr. Bush is urging our young
men and women to sign up--it is their patriotic duty to
go die in that hell-hole that he created--oh yes, he created
that hell and now is urging parents to talk their kids into
joining the military--there just is no end to his evilness--
And I do put the blame for this horrible mess on all the
republicans too--they are in control and they just let bush
get us trillions of dollars in debt--our military is under-
staffed, the soldiers are driving vehicles that give them
no protection, he has cut millions of dollars from the
veteran's administration, the wounded get very little health
care--this is all fact--yet the republicans dont do a damn
thing about this outrageous policy--A POX ON ALL YOUR HOUSES
Redeem yourselves Republicans--Tell Bush to resign or be
Impeached--then get Haliburton back to the states and try
him for misuse of funds--you will have the support of
100% of the Democrats--Then and only then will this country
get back on its feet again--we are in dire straits, and all
because of Bush and his cohorts with their lies and
mismanaged policies in Iraq--

Three years ago we bombed Iraq with 4000 bombs in 2
months--more than a few were 2500 ton bombs--Is that
less barbaric--and we are still 'staying the course of
barbarism' with no end in sight--at least these terrorists
strike only once in awhile--thousands, yes, thousands of
Iraquis are being slaughtered everyday--plus of course our

experience all the strife and misery he's been perpetrating

Ooops, Sorry Stan...I deleted your message by mistake.




From:     stan     7/12/2005     11:43 A.M.

Stew,
You defended Bush's policy of taking from the poor to give to the rich, saying "there will always be poor".
Yes , maybe, but the bible also says dozens of times that Christians, and Jews before them, have a responsibility to treat the poor fairly, not rob them blind as your born again friend is doing.




From:     SIG     7/12/2005     7:22 P.M.

Actually, I think I wrote that just as there will always be poor people, there will also always be wars.

That has nothing to do with Bush or not-Bush; it is the result of the fallen human condition.





From:     Mij     7/13/2005     6:17 A.M.

I suppose Jesus is an Iraq war supporter? Let's not forget
that the war was the "christian thing to do" according to
the not-so-christian assholes who are so willing to kill
our young men and flush what's left of this country's
resources and assets down the homeland security toilet.
Patriotism and Christianity, two of the oldest and most
self-righteous reasons for the haves to keep the have-nots
doing all the dirty little deeds that guys like MB and
Rummy would never have the courage and integrity to do
for themselves. Send the poor bastards off to war, throw a
few patriotic slogans to the masses who move with the flow
like some sort of giant unthinking ball of naivety, and
watch as evil corporations like Haliburton make MB and Rummy
rich beyond comprehension.
You should have a problem with Jesus if these are the things
our leaders would have him stand for. Time to pull our
collective christian heads out of their un-christian asses
and start thinking as humans.


or not.

From:     stan     7/14/2005     5:14 P.M.

As I've said before, it's people who call themselves Christians who give Christ a bad name... not all... just way too many.



From:     SIG     7/16/2005     4:03 P.M.

No one gives Christ a bad name. Like Himself, His name is eternal, unchanging, and spotless. They may reflect poorly on themselves--but never on Him.

When you look at Him and know Him for who He is, you look at Truth incarnate. To look away from Him is to start missing the truth. It is a grave mistake to expect truth apart from Him.

As an aside--One of the basis principles of sound Bible exegesis is to always compare each verse with ALL other verses. To extract some things that Christ said to support one's world-view, and ignore the rest of what He said, misses the mark. Alas, He did not prophesy any utopia, manmade or otherwise, before His return happens.

I had this huge retort written and ready to send...
but then a feeling came over me that I've read that crap
before. Not just once, but many times. I like to refer to the feeling as "De-Ja-Spew"..or "De-Ja-Stew"..

Do "YOU" have anything original to say SIG? or can we look
foreward to more annoying and meaningless biblical
rhetoric and the holier-than-thou attitude that you so
willingly like to shroud yourself in...

And once again, you've said nothing about anything. While
the rest of us hell-bound sinners actually have an opinion
on what's going on in the world, your opinions are only what
some dude who looks like Ted Nugent tells you they are.

Even jesus is getting bored...

From:     stan     7/17/2005     5:39 P.M.

Stew,
Being otherworldly does not help your argument. The majority of people today who call themselves Christians and try to put forth a "Christian" agenda are right wing fanatics who turn off intelligent thinking people to the entire concept.
There are dozens of places in old and new testaments which warn good people to respect and help the poor. There are none that I remember which say it's ok to step on them, use them, steal from them. This is not about finding something in the bible to justify a political philosophy, it's about basic fairness and justice and compassion and truth. Things which all too many Christians miss because they get too hung up on keeping the outside of the cup clean while they ignore all the vile stuff is inside.

holy shit !




From:     Mij     7/20/2005     5:54 P.M.

Let us look at Shit:

The outcome of all we injest, the tangible evidence to human
consumption, we have given many different names and stigmas
to this odd stuff which exudes from humans on a regular
( if your lucky ) basis. Though we cringe from it, we are
at the same time strangely attracted to it's immeasurable
ability to be adapted to all aspects of human life...
We use it to sustain our lives by growing our foods which we
then shit back out.
We substitute shit for about half the words in the English
language, whether to express scorn, wonderment, joy, or
just the plain inibility to think of another word.
We combine it with other words to enhance or detract from
countless different nuances of the human language...
"No shit"?
"You'll shit when you hear it"!
"Eat shit!"
"I've got so much shit to do"
"Same ol' shit, different day!"
"Don't give me no shit!"
"I feel like shit".
"You look like shit".
"The whole world's gone to shit".
"You shittin' me?"
"Enough of this shit!"


I'd say we would have to, in the end, when all is said and
done and the matter had been thoroughly examined and
assessed, We would have to give shit the well desereved
status of holy.

That's no shit.

When peace-promoters come to despise those who do not fully agree with them, or those they come to see as enemies, they lose their credibility and undermine their cause.

I am very sorry to hear of Jim's passing, and from everyone
here we send our heartfelt condolences. Jim was a kind and
gentle spirit and we were all priviledged to be able to
have had him in our lives...
Over 30 yrs ago he befriended my brother at Sunnyridge and
despite actually getting to know us remained a very good
friend. The past few years we have all gotten to renew that
friendship thanks to Ted and this wonderful site he's
created...
I know he's in a good place, and even though we will grieve
because we lost his physical presence, we should rejoice in
the peace that I'm sure his kind soul has found. A truely
good man.
Have a wonderful trip Mr. James Frankfurt...

Peace.

Hello Dear Ones who may be visiting this page. I heard some of you gathered together and spent moments remembering impressions from your first interactions with our buddy Jim on this particular sojourn. Little snapshots came into view for me that I thought I'd share. While I was a college student in New Paltz, in perhaps 1966 or 1967, I began to cross paths with Jim at Manny's bookstore and Larry & Barbara's headshop and at various people's homes. He often had very small, beautiful children with him. There was no great need to exchange many words to get to know one another. It seems like we were old friends and knew each other well. There were many smiles. Jim was teaching us how to live in community and share things from the earth. I'd sometimes come home and find a bag of corn or other vegetables at my doorstep and I knew Jim had been there. I was aware of the day he got in his truck to head across the Country to Oregon and Sunnyridge but my time to do the same was a year or two later after receiving a letter from Demetra to Ted. It was no surprise to see Jim again and to smile knowingly with a bit of a cosmic laugh behind the eyes. This friendship is forever.

From:     Mij     8/8/2005     4:35 P.M.

hello all. Hope everyone is doing fine. Been pretty busy
lately so haven't had much computer time..don't really know
exactly what it is that's keeping me so much more busy, I
guess just the fact that it's summertime. I'm kinda the
coach of our softball team in the local league. It's almost
halfway through the season and we still don't have a full
roster, in fact we have 7 people on the roster so we have
to pick up guys from one of the other 3 teams usually to
field a team. I love softball, been playing in the league
every year for over 25 yrs, but it's just not like it use
to be..not as many teams, players or fans. In the perverbial
"good ol' days" there was 10 or more teams and the park was
filled with people and the town revolved around softball in
the summertime. Oh well, that too did pass....

Other than that, working when I can and swimming as much as
I can..

Hey Eugene, are you still out there? haven't heard from you
in awhile. Hope all is well...

Soooooo, seems I do have enough time to convey to you all
a few of lifes little inanities and quirks which make life
worth living...

-World Jump Day ( worldjumpday.org) is aiming to get 600
million people in the Western Hemisphere to jump up and
down once at 11:39:13 Greenwich Mean Time on July 20, 2006,
which they say will throw earth into a new orbit, which will
then solve the problem of global warming.
( Hmmmmmmm.... )

-One Canadian goose produces about 2 pounds of poop a day.
( Maybe if we have all the geese poop at the same time on
July 20, 2006......)

-China plans to launch 40 lbs of pig semen into space.
( It's about time someone did that! )

Stupid Joke # 17,000....
How do you make a handkerchief dance?

Put a little boogie in it.

Continuing with whatever it was I was doing..

-In Dragor, Bulgaria, a man charged with theft escaped a
three year jail sentence after having a sex change
operation. Under Bulgarian law, the operation means he is
legally a different person and can no longer be prosecuted.
The case was dropped when the man turned up in court as a
woman.
( Plus he get's to have tits! )

Stupid person # 9875685223689999852236547899556.1 :
In the town Cherkask in the Ukraine, a drunken 22-yr-old
man decided to show his friends how strong he was by taking
them to the local zoo to watch him wrestle a grizzly bear.
The man climbed into the bear cage, walked up to the
sleeping bear and hit it on the leg. When the bear pushed
the man away with his paw, the man hit him again, at which
point the bear pinned him to the ground and mauled him.
He's in the hospital in serious condition.
( Sounds like he's bearly alive..)

-At a cheerleading camp in Texas, four Keller High School
chearleaders were punished legally and academically for
pooping on a pizza in an attempt to frame a rival
cheerleading squad.
( There's too much there to comment on...)

A Romanian man ended up in the hospital after he tried to
swing from tree to tree to escape his wife and go drinking.
Stefan Trisca, 66, had been locked in the bedroom by his
wife, who was fed up with him going drinking with his
friends. Things were going well with the escape until he
slipped from a vine and fell 15 ft to the ground, hurting
himself badly. "Unfortunately it's a lot harder than it
looks in the Tarzan movies", said Trisca.
( This is just a guess, but I'd say his wife must be a real
catch...)

-More than 100 athletes competing in an International
Triathalon at Loch Ness in Scotland will be insured for up
to $2.6 million in case they fall prey to the Loch Ness
monster.

-Russian astrologist Marina Bai has sued NASA for $400
million dollars in damages, saying that the space agency
altered her horoscope when it crashed the Deep Impact probe
into the Temple-1 comet in early July.
( Maybe she read something bad and it was a "horrorscope".)

-That sucked.

-Estonia has won the World Wife Carrying Championship
again.
( are they ever gonna lose?!! )

-A young Russian man who dressed up as a woman to take an
exam for his sister was caught when his oversized breasts
gave him away.
( "Busted!" )

-A British man pleaded guilty to shooting water from a fire
extinguisher up his friend's "backside"..
"It was just horseplay that went wrong", said the man's
lawyer. The victim, who had to have surgery for severe
damage and be fitted with a colostamy bag, is not speaking

Monkey Boy's war effort seems to be losing steam...he's
having a hard time coming up with new reasons why we went
and why were still there donating American lives as if
they're some sort of national commodity he's personally in
charge of wasting. This war ( and administration ) is wrong
from beginning to end, and support is needed when and where
it's possible, so I'm giving an E-mail in which you can
support the mother of one of the thousands of boys who
have given their lives for no reason.
Cindy Sheehan is currently camped on the road to MB's
ranch, and all she wants is our president to at least
acknowledge her presence and explain why it is that her son
died...for what reason, and for how long will it go on. So
far the only response from this "Humane" administration has
been that she'll be arrested and thrown in jail....

So, if you get the time, please show your support for her
and her brave endeavor for the truth. Thanks.

hey all...

have not been very outgoing lately... mostly just spend
my time at dailykos.com and michaelmoore.com... reading
up on the insanity of our times... and garnering a little
hope at times from the young earnest types who still have
room for optimism and energy for action...

cannot remember what i may have written here lately so
will just recap...

spent may in oakland housesitting...

went to albuquerque folk festival about a month or so
ago...

weather here is strange compared to prior years...
105 every day from mid-june to end of july and no summer
rain really... ususally the only hot weather we have here
last two weeks of july and first two weeks of august...

even then never many days over 100... oh well...

was up near taos a couple of weeks ago... spent time
at red river with parents... first time i had been
there...

hope all is well with everyone...





From:     Mij     8/12/2005     7:09 A.M.

Good to hear from you Eugene....

The weather is crazy all over, but it has nothing to do with
atmospereic changes caused by us humans crawling around and
taking, taking, taking....that would just be ignorant to
think we're having any effect on anything, it's just normal
weather patterns that we happen to never have seen before.
Ray Charles can see that!

Anyway, good to know your still kicking. Keep in touch.
Peace.

PS. I see MB finally semi-acknowledged Mrs.Sheehan by
saying...are you ready...prepare yourself, because this is
really, really deep...."I mourn her loss".

That is one amazing heartfelt sentiment. I think I just may
cry...

Later.

She is one courageous lady--I am so glad to see
hundreds of people joining her on that road to
Crawford, Tx.--She is a true Patriot, trying to

Hello all. Hope all is well with everyone....

Still haven't recovered from the excitement of the Wild
Blackberry Festival from last weekend...NOT! I look
forward to the festival each year, but I must say that this
years festival was as exciting as watching socks smell.
The vendors looked like they wanted to be put out of their
misery, and the people walking down the streets looked like
they wanted to be the ones to do it!..
Usually there's activities like pie eating contests and
what have you, but this year the most exciting event was
watching the heat come off the pavement. I was talking to
a friend with a booth and he said a lady was all pissed off
and upset because she drove up from Eureka to get some
blackberry pies....and there wasn't any! not one booth or
vendor who had a blackberry pie at the BLACKBERRY festival!
You just can't make up that kind of irony!..

In other news, there isn't any.

Keep cool, and may the peace of a thousand Ghandi's infect
your souls..

Later.







From:     Mij     8/24/2005     4:19 P.M.

hello all, hope this day finds you well. Went swimming
earlier, but it really wasn't that hot, so I ended up
skipping rocks mostly...

Was thumbing through a few items of inanity and insanity
that pervades through humanity...

-Last Wednesday in Shinnston, W. Va., a woman called 911
for help after a camel sat on top of her while she was
painting a fence.
( That's why it's called hump day..)

-In Swansea, Eng., a 33-yr-old Welsh woman ended up in the
hospital after she wore a pair of vibrating "passion pants"
to a supermarket and became so aroused that she fainted and
banged her head against the store shelves when she fell.
( she had a "storegasm"..)

-A man wearing a giant poop costume was refused entry to a
government meeting in Victoria, BC. James Skwarok arrived
at the meeting dressed as "Mr. Floatie" to represent POOP,
People Opposed to Outfall Polution. He was protesting
against the dumping of raw sewage into the Pacific Ocean.

-Speaking of sewage, what are a plumbers favorite shoes?

clogs.

Moving right along, in Ashburton, New Zealand, a teenager
had to be rescued after he and two friends broke open the
doors of a shipping container. When the doors opened, he
was buried in an avalanche of peas.
( "All we are saying..is give peas a chance"..)

-In Windsor, Ontario, Waddah Mustapha was awarded $270,000
by a court after he testified that he required extensive
phsychotherapy for the trauma he suffered after seeing a
dead fly floating inside a bottle of water even though he
didn't drink from or even open the bottle. Among some of
the things he claims to have sufferd from:
1. Nightmares 2. Loss of sense of humor 3. Increased
argumentativeness 4. Lack of desire to shower regularly
5. Constipation 6. Fear of flies
( sounds reasonable..)

-In Atlanta, when 88-yr-old Patience Von Suttka questioned
the amount of an Orkin exterminator's bill, he grabbed her
walker, through it across the room and then jumped on her,
shoved the pesticide nozzle down her throat and sprayed it.
( No more pesticides for that guy! )

-A Romanian traffic cop was suspended and demoted after he
pulled over a driver and told him he was fining him for
"having a face like a moron and being a big fat monkey".
( sounds reasonable )

-In Perm, Russia, a 30-yr-old woman showed up at a hospital
emergency room with a shishkebab skewer sticking out of her
head. She told doctors that, while her and her boyfriend
were barbecuing in the forest, her boyfriend through one
through her head after trying to impress her with his
skewer throwing abilities.
( He should "stick" to cooking. )
( I bet he was "grilled" by officials )

Speaking of terrorism..

-At the airport in Fort Collins, Colorado, Pat and Penny, a
pair of penguins from Sea world who had made an appearence
at a children's event and were en route back home, were
made to waddle through airport metal detectors numerous
times. Said one trainer: "It was embarrassing, just plain
embarrasing. What did they think, they were gonna explode?"

-Visitors to Hamburg parks in Germany are being told to
watch out for exploding toads. Several thousand toads in the
city's parks have mysteriously, spontaneously exploded
recently, baffling experts.
( better run those penguins through again! )

Speaking of exploding..

-At Ft Lauderdale, Fla., a 64-yr-old man pulled out a gun
and shot his car five times when it wouldn't start. After
being bailed out of jail, he said: "it was worth every damn
minute in that jail!"
( sounds reasonable )

-Police in Brunssum, Netherlands, were called to the scene
of a kidnapping after passers by saw three men forcing a
struggling handcuffed woman into the back of a van. They
chased the van with a helicopter and squad cars until they
forced it off the road, only to find that the kidnapping
was really an elaborate sex game. When they untied the
woman and removed her gag, she screamed "You stupid
bastards, i've been trying to set this up for months! And
now you've ruined it just when it was getting interesting!"
( That's interesting )

-In Woodbury, N.J., a 39-yr-old man successfully escaped
from prison on an oversized tricycle, only to be arrested
10 days later for robbery. And here in Oregon, a man on a
tricycle hit the rear-end of a car and was thrown to the
ground. When he got up, he pulled out a gun and stole the
car.
( Sounds reas......ahhh, you know! )


Adieu.

Thank's mij...I needed that.




From:     Mij     9/1/2005     6:36 A.M.

The situation in the Gulf Coast is like something out of
a horror novel..no food, no water, no electricity, and
thousanands of completely desparate people doing whatever
they have to survive. But this is in no way all because
of Katrina, even with her being a catagory five hurricane.
The whole nightmare stems much deeper than that....

Let's go back five short years ago.....there was an entire
different country: There was no deficit, there was jobs,
there was gas for less than a weeks paycheck, there was no
war in which countless lives are being loss, ( you know, the
war MB claimed was over out on that warship 3 yrs ago )
there was moneys available for all the things that moneys
should be available for, schools, housing, etc., there was
peace and prosperity and a sense of well being throughout
country. Also, we were not hated by everyone else in the
world. There were laws and organizations protecting our
national resources...etc, etc, etc.

But now it's all gone. No sense of well being, no jobs, no
natural resources, no peace, nothing. All we have is a
completely moronic asshole who DOESN"T CARE about anything
or anyone....and he was elected by the very people he's
shitting on....

Back to the Gulf. The extent of this catastrophe is not
just because of Katrina, but directly attributed to MB and
his merry band of evil thieves. Instead of having our
National Guard at home ready to react and help the hurricane
victims, they are in Iraq dying in a made-up war that was
supposedly "won" 3 yrs ago! Also, it's coming out that MB
took money that was earmarked to re-build those levies in
New Orleans and used it for the war in Iraq! The whole thing
is a complete mess, and it's gonna get a lot worse...

This president is the devil re-incarnate, and we'll be
feeling his effects as long as the gulf will be feeling the
effects of Katrina. He's an evil, evil man who doesn't have
a brain or a conscience...and that's a volatile mixture.

Peace and goodwill to all the people in the Gulf and Iraq..

Later.

MB has sunk below the disgusting level and is bordering
dangerously close to abhorrent. All his non-actions are
directly responsible for this disaster of biblical
proportions, but somehow he'll come out of this looking
good. A couple photo ops of him hugging a poor black flood
victim, and all will be forgotten. But it doesn't surprise
me, he's been shitting on America and smelling like a rose
for 5 yrs, so why should anything change now?
Praise the lord and pass the ballots, MB's in town!!!!

PS. And by the way, the victims of this tragedy are NOT
REFUGEES, they are American citizens..

peace.

I often check in even if I don't write. I would certainly miss it... I just returned to Cambodia to a real time mess. A friend's bar I took over last Jan was doing great until low season hit and I went back to the states for my annual visit. I've been offered help to get it back together so I think it'll work.
I love being out at night - always warm here - and hanging out with friends.
Teaching 10 hours a week and added to SS I'm doing fine.
Katrina should be mb's undoing but without a real opposition party I'm not confident. It always seems to take tragedy to bring changes so here's hoping.

This guy could burn down a childs hospital ward and somehow
put a good spin on it..."Da children may be fried, but at

Hello to all, hope the day finds you well and hurricane
free. Went to the coast yesterday...very beautiful. Although
the wind tried to blow me off the cliffs, it was still a
fine day. Saw some porpoises swim by while we were toking
some hash on this steep cliff overhanging the crashing
waves. My girlfriend said to watch for whales because the
adage says where porpoise are whales soon follow. Never
heard that before, but sure enough within a few minutes we
saw the telltale water spouts of whales passing by about
a half mile offshore. I took one down with my high powered
rifle and we dined on whale all evening....JUST JOKING!!!!
Actually, they swam by us for awhile and that was all we
saw of them, but it was a cool feeling knowing such
majestic creatures were so close. We had another toke to
honor them..

Other than that, not much new to harangue about, so I'll
just say have a beautiful day and may your days be filled
with porpoise...

Peace.

PS. Ted, hope all is going well with you. I know things seem
a bit..hectic, so keep your head up and swim with the flow,
and you'll end up where your suppose to be. Peace.

From:     Aaron     9/29/2005     8:03 P.M.

Not to gloat, but....
Dear Red States... We've decided we're leaving. We intend to form our own country, and we're taking the other Blue States with us.

In case you aren't aware, that includes Hawaii, Oregon,Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.

To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states. We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get Elliot Spitzer. You get Ken Lay. We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood.
We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.
We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss.
We get 85 percent of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama. We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home. We do wish you success in Iraq, and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we're not willing to spend our resources in Bush's Quagmire.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent of the country's fresh water, more than 90 percent of the pineapple and lettuce, 92 percent of the nation's fresh fruit, 95 percent of America's quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners) 90 percent of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools, plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88 percent of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92 percent of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99 percent of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62 percent believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44 percent say that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61 percent of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

By the way, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico.

Peace out,
Blue States





From:     stan     9/30/2005     11:58 A.M.

Aaron,
Totally agree, the civil war was a mistake, better to have let the south do it's thing. Yes it would have been bad for a while but by now the south would have had to join the human race - end slavery and discrimination - like everybody. meanwhile we would have had a blue state world.
maybe we can still split it up.....





From:     Chattaholic Rita     10/2/2005     1:10 P.M.

Hi Everyone--I was feeling a little sentimental
yesterday morning, so I clicked on Archive #1--
The date was August/1998-1999--
It was fun reading those messages again, so very long
ago, yet it was only seven years back--
Many of you were chatting then, and you were recalling
memories of 30 years back--You could feel the joy and
love in those messages--As Stan said, dont think Sunnyridge
is finished because everyone left--we were centuries before
our time--And jim was 'right on'--"you never forget the love
and caring we felt for each other"--But an experience like
commune living should be nourished every now and then by
all its participants--This is your family, and your family
history--dont let these wonderful pages disappear for lack
of communicating--Its up to the 'kids' and your parents who
are now mainly over 50, to at least say Hello every few weeks--Its like talking over the fence with your neighbor--


Mike Menge called me a "chattaholic"--I love that, cause
its true--and I'm hoping most of you will be chattaholics
once in awhile too--

Peace, Love







From:     Mij     10/3/2005     6:52 A.M.

Hey Mom, save some chat space for the rest of us!!!!...

Your right, many have left and few have stayed, but this is
still a great site that I look forward to checking into.
Some of the previous participants are no longer with us, but
many just do not write either out of loss of interest or
they have other things going on in their lives which puts
this site on the backburner. I've wondered about my role
and whether some of my..."opinions" have made it so others
are put out or offended, and I have come to the conclusion
that that's the way it is and not to lose sleep over it.

You've made one hell of a site Ted, and I'll always be a
participant. ( Sorry! )

Here's to speaking your mind and loving your neighbor..

Peace.

Latest deterioration of Bob Hale:

Found posted on the "Mad Spammer Page"





From:     stan     10/8/2005     10:23 A.M.

The Bob Hale thing is a classic case of individuals who think they're hearing and teaching god's words descending into an ego abyss. Just like monkey boy, as soon as you're sure god is speaking through you, you're lost, you've dug yourself a pit, you no longer are capable of being wrong or making a mistake How could the boy president make a mistake when he speaks to god every night?
This is a warning Ted, you are not god! Only a remote likeness... which under most circumstances is plenty good enough.





From:     Mij     10/8/2005     6:13 A.M.

The things in man's short history on this planet that he's
done in the name of the Lord has caused more grief and
human strife than all the tsunamis, earthquakes and
hurricanes combined. Apparently Bob said "what the Hale"
and jumped on the "Thou shalt screw you too" bandwagon with
all the other weak-minded yahoo born agains that roam this
planet like some sort of toxic religious cloud, raining
down their holier than thou attitudes upon the indigenous
atheilitical free thinkers whom still have enough of their
own minds left to decipher the shit from the shinola!

Other than that, I'm a firm believer.

Later.

PS. I'm anti-organized religion, not anti-god. I start to
have serious doubts when an individual or group decides
that their beliefs are the way and uses guilt to make sure
everyone else "moooo"ves along with them like a herd of
cows.

Peace.

They're rioting in Africa,

The whole world is festering,
With unhappy souls,
The French hate the Germans,
The Germans hate the Poles,
Italians hate Yugoslavs,
South Americans hate the Dutch,
And I don't like anybody very much,
But we can be tranquil,
And "thankful" and proud,
For man's been endowed,
With a mushroom-shaped cloud,
And we know for certain,
That some lovely day,
Someone will set the spark off,
And we will all be blown away,
They're rioting in Africa,
There's strife in Iran,
What nature doesn't do to us,
Will be done by our fellow man!!!!!

The Top 10 Winners in the '05 International Pun Contest

1. A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. The stewardess looks at him and says, "I'm sorry, sir, only one carrion allowed per passenger."

2. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. The one turns to the other and says, "Dam!"

3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.

4. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says "I've lost my electron." The other says "Are you sure?" The first replies "Yes, I'm positive."

5. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal? His goal: transcend dental medication.

6. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why?" they asked, as they moved off. "Because," he said, "I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."

7. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal." The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan." Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband and that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

8. The friars had become substantially behind on their belfry payments. They decided to open up a small floral shop to raise funds. Since almost everyone began buying flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop. Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that only Hugh can prevent florist friars.

9. Mahatma Gandhi walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him.... (Oh, man, this is so bad, it's good)..... A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

10. And finally, there was the person who sent ten different puns to his friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did!

It's sad when MB is the pick of the litter...which, when you
take a good look at the rest of the wastes of skin called
his cabinet, he actually seems to be.

They should head shoot and Kerby dump the whole ensemmble
of evil ignorant bastards and not Delay it anymore..

Later.
