Site's kinda going through a lull right now, I guess.

I verified our site through Google last night. I figure if we are going to have a Google bot trolling our forum, and leaving ads, we may as well benefit from the exposure.

Google bot? Suspect
Do you have an interesting story to share with us? I must have missed something.

Good idea to verify us on Google.

It's automated software that Google uses to scan websites for information.

We're in the system. affraid

Happy Birthday, Wrey!

Thanks guys! cheers

Google is going to take over the internet. It's inevitable and somewhat scary.

Thanks. It's not easy for me to appear photogenic--it's gotta be just the right angle. I know that's one of your talents Jack--must be nice.
Photo editing always helps; and it is one of my hobbies. Throw in a few sparkles and flowers. Meh.


I'm going to go watch TRON! My husband about fell in the floor when I told him I'd never seen it before. So now we're watching it...

TRON was okay. I can see why it rocked the world back in 198..whatever. But the music scores really drove me batty. I kept looking at my husband and asking "This was acceptable music back then?" Corny, very. I thought it would have been better with some re-editing and more matrix worthy music. I also had a hard time grasping the 'seriousness' they were trying put on the cheesy video game theme.

Sorry Tron lovers. Atleast I watched it to the end. :)

At least you've enjoyed yourself and chilled with your husband. smiling <-- This is always a good thing; spending time with family members. Speaking of which, I should be spending more time with my family because I've been extremely busy lately.

Tonight will be a movie night! thumbs up

Hi, everyone. Hope you're all having a great weekend!

Never watched Tron. Even when I was a kid it seemed like a silly movie from the previews I saw. (Sorry if that offends someone.) cool

TRON sucked back then. Although, I thoroughly enjoyed all the Star Trek and Star Wars stories as they unfolded in cinema and TV. A couple more really good sci-fi/philosophical films were 2001:A Space Odessy and Andromeda Strain. At 60 yo, I got to witness all the cool growth. When I graduated from high school:

- Nobody had ever been to the moon,
- Telephones used a rotary dial and many families shared a "party-line",
- There were no microwaves CDs, DVDs, cell phones, internet, microwaves, digital watches, home computers or cable TV.
- Police did not have pepper spray and tasers; only a gun and night stick with which to beat someone into submission,
- CPR and the Heimlick (sp?) Maneuver had not been invented,
- Open heart surgery was experimental and organ transplants were limited to corneas and skin grafts,
- Abortion was illegal, HIV had not been discovered and there only x-rays (no CAT scans or MRI),
- People always died from cancer,
- and it was considered cheating to bring a calculator into physics or calculus classes. I still have my engineering slide-rule from those early college days!

But, some things never change. Government still takes more in taxes than it provides in benefits and politicians are still telling lies just like in the "good'ol" days.

And . . . TRON still sucks!!!

Yes, family time is important. Wink
We had a good time together...until he fell asleep, lol. We're going to finish a movie about the life of Jane Austin (Becoming Jane) tonight. We started it last week while planting tomato seeds. That is a much better movie. biggrin

What have you all been up to this weekend?

I remember those. When I was 6 or 7 I got in trouble for crank calling these two women that were always gossiping on there. I guess they didn't think it was very funny. I thought it was hilarious until I couldn't sit comfortably for awhile. biggrin

How is everyone today?

Great! I think I'll brew some coffee and snuggle up to read a book. My husband and kids are playing Star Wars on Gamecube. Love the theme songs. So catchy.

Sounds like an average family to me.

I always hear my younger brothers playing something on that old PS2. My mother and father are busy working (from home; on the weekend) and I just basically chill with my friends and computer lol.

Oh... and I don't like coffee. I like my hot choco. Wink

Besides all that... my weekend is pretty good. Its the march break this week and during my time; I will be relaxing, catching up on sleep, posting some of my stories on here and finish any 'late' assignments for school.

Sounds like you guys are doing great!

I've been working on clearing the lot for our house. Got a lot of trees and other crap to clear out before I can build. Plus a bunch of spring cleaning. about 5 of our 21 acres is open - around the house - that I have to keep up. It's pleasurable work though...thank goodness!

That's cool Jack. I made hot cocoa this morning from scratch--not too bad considering I didn't use a recipe. How old are your siblings? I keep forgeting you're in your teens . You come across very mature, I guess that's why.
---
You're building a house Garmar? Wow. I helped my dad do what you're doing once. We were clearing a lot where a house had burned down 30 years before. We had to sift the ground for melted and broken glass and other odd things amongst full grown trees and vegetation. A good experience. You should let your son help out. How old is he?
---
A few days ago, I planted a watermellon (in the ground) that I had been nurturing in a pot for seven months. In less than 24 hours, my 3yo and my 1yo completely killed it. I don't know how my tomatoes will survive when I transplant them in a few weeks.

Anyone written anything lately?

This is all awesome to think about. I can only imagine what it must be like. And how much more things will change in another lifetime.
Do you ever wonder what the younger you would say if you could go back in time and tell him what's instore for the world? LOL.

I'm lucky in one respect--It's a level lot and has electric and water already there because a trailer burned down in that spot before we bought this place. I'm going to cut down several trees in the general area; one is a monster oak that is probably well over 70-80 years old. I'll be taking pictures as I go along.

My boy turns 11 this month, and he's going to be a big help! He helps me with everything--my right hand man you could say. And he's very excited to get going. He doesn't understand there are preparations to be made first--he just wants to drive nails!

My two younger brothers are 7 and 10 years old. I'd say that I am mature for my age, but sometimes I have my moments rolleyes (That's because all teenagers do). I only snap at my parents when I absolutely and totally disagree with something (Which rarely happens What a Face ).
