Think so?  I didn't think the Go Anywhere thread was talk about anything...and the MC Hammer thread. I thought it just evolved like that.

There are a few other repetitive songs out there that I kinda like and/or have a guilty pleasure for. Such as...

and a few others which I'll probably think of later.

Aha! I think I know why they're not showing up well.
You might have carriage returns (you know, the result of hitting the 'return' key to start a new line) between the links. What you need to do is eliminate the carriage returns and the pics should all be on one line. IOW, place them all next to each other.

(But be sure to replace the parentheses with the appropraite square brackets! And please note that if something above wraps around to another line, do NOT hit the return key, or it will not work.)

Sometimes if you post the URLs of the images (surrounded by img /img tags) into a post, it'll auto-adjust them with "height" and "width" attributes, with the arguments being the number of pixels.

Your reply was a good one. However, some time after, I concocted what I thought was a more step by step / line by line kind of explanation. Took me a while to get it all nice. In that time, Pat replied, and I got the dreaded  'you may wish to review your post' message. She had 'cracked it'. I persisted, as I thought my technique was fairly worth explaining, but when I went to post it all ..... it would come out fine one moment .... then failing the next ... even though a painstakingly thorough examination could find NO error in the final link. Indeed, I could copy and paste it back in at other times, and it would work.

Ultimately, I deleted the post .... as the system somehow just seemed determined to thwart my dogged efforts. Still, I obviously know how to do it .....

One of my best was by the Rolling Stones, I believe, and I even forgot the song, but it was catchy.   That night, I dreamed of a parody to the two verses in the middle, got up and checked it.  It rhymed and paced perfectly, so I wrote from the inside of the parody to the outside.  It was about a belly dancer (can't help what words I dream ) and it was a big hit!!

It was by Aerosmith  and best listened to on youtube.

Do you have insulated overalls?  I have worked outside many, many years and won't leave the house for work in winter without them, and always, always wear a hat.  You won't believe how toasty -10 can be

Comfy boots and toasty toes, don't leave home without them in.  They say six hours, but they last all day if you are moving about.

Sweating isn't good.  Then when you stop moving the sweat ends up chilling you.  Wear a white cotton t-shirt against your skin, then a thermal shirt the wicks the moisture away from your body, and then a wool sweater.  Wet wool will still keep you warm, man made fibers won't  ;)

It's obviously aimed at Hitler.  For some people, Nazism / that era is synonymous with the German race as a whole . In other words .... the entire German race were bad guys. Germany lost, the Allies (USA, UK etc; ... won !)

The Germans might argue (not totally without justification ? )  :-[ that the UK had achieved very little since 'winning' the war .... so .... they LOVE to harp on about this ! When I say little .... well, we beat Germany in the 1966 World Cup .... but .... not a great deal to crow about after that .....  :-[

The German economy boomed .... England was in the doldrums for many years ....


So .... that episode ... probably  was embarrassing in the sense that the UK still seemed to be harping on about 'winning the war' ... (albeit with a 'slight' assist from the good ol' US of A  ;) ). Cleese says "Well ....... YOU started it"  (referring to the war). He probably represents the English man who wants to reflect on 'old glories' ?  :-\\

Interestingly,  :-\\  even as late as 1996 ....... a lot of the UK tabloids .... were still depicting their clash in the Euro 96 soccer competition as a clash of the old enemy ..... with the likes of local soccer heroes ... Stuart Pearce .... and Paul Gascoine (tell me if I'm wrong, Phil) ... depicted on the newspaper's front page .... wearing helmets of soldiers who might've appeared in the trenches of World War 1 !

I found the picture comical /amusing .... but other's might not have ?  For the record, Germany had the last laugh, beating England in that encounter !

I was flirting (harmlessly of course) with a young woman from a recruitment agency late last year and she was playing along. Had her laughing at my comments and generally chatting away when she put her head on my shoulder...(of course, at this point I thought I was doing pretty well even if I would never act on my efforts)...anyway she looks at me sweetly and said....I wish you were MY father!!!

I left shortly afterwards feeling older than when I entered..... :o :\'( 8-P ;D

Well, even when I was 24 ... 24 and there's so much more (Neil Young .... well, he WAS) ... even then, I was starting to age myself in advance. However, even though they say 'age is just a number' .... I think most 18 -30 year olds look at 40 as old (as did I when in that group). So, no matter what you try to tell yourself, if you want a younger woman .... you can't help feeling a little bit over the hill / that you probably won't fit in with her group ?

Boxleitner has also written two science fiction novels with a Western setting: Frontier Earth (1999) and Searcher (2001).

On January 1, 1995 Boxleitner married actress Melissa Gilbert with whom he has a son, Michael Boxleitner, and a stepson, Dakota Brinkman (Gilbert's son with actor Bo Brinkman. Boxleitner has two older sons, Sam and Lee, from his previous marriage to former actress Kathryn Holcomb (who is now married to English actor Ian Ogilvy). Melissa Gilbert also played his on-screen wife Anna Sheridan in the 1990s television show Babylon 5.

In 2003, Boxleitner was appointed to the Board of Governors of the National Space Society, a nonprofit, educational space advocacy organization founded by Dr. Wernher von Braun.

In 2007 he returned to the Babylon 5 universe and filmed Babylon 5: The Lost Tales, a direct-to-DVD release.

Okay, so the main reason you are not posting in a thread is because it is started by a deleted user? I guess this was because of Tam's thread about not posting in deleted member's threads? I am hoping I am not putting words into Tam's mouth but my interpretation of her thread was based on reacting to trolls and former members who do come back who create subversive threads to cause trouble.

But anyway, even if you have your principles Jeff,  here is a sample record of the threads you have written in within the last month . . .

'Funny names Simpsons-style' - March 18th '08 - Reply #115 - started by Donnie Darko (deleted member and formerly Full House Fan)

'Goodnight, goodmorning and good afternoon thread - March 22nd '08 (reply #6045) and March 25th (#6068) - started by ElDuderino (I BELIEVE this person is a deleted member)

well, some of those folks were banned, that's different.

I have said in the past that the words "full, house, and fan" look like an eyesore to me when separated by underscores. It might not look so ugly in my eyes if he hadn't deleted his account. I had no issues with him, per se; he never treated me disrespectfully (even after he re-registered a year later under a couple different names). And I have no issues with the tv show Full House either; I think it's an enjoyable show to watch; I know every episode of that show by heart.
In short, I might feel a little more comfrotable with L-T-E if it had been started prior to February 2005...by a member who intended to keep his or her account for years to come.

Last Spring, I was looking thru Wiki and saw the info on actor Donald Sutherland (Kiefer's Dad). It said he was born in Halifax NS, when in fact he was born right here in Saint John NB, but moved with his family to NS as a child.(In fact, I think his family moved to Bridgewater NS, not Halifax) Somebody finally wised up and added the factual info. My point is that there is a lot of info on that site, but it's not Encyclopaedia Britannica. Bios and other information are always open for editing by the general public.

Wiki is a 'work in progress'. Over time, expect mistakes to be rectified.

It IS difficult when members are public are supplying information from books they've bought / respected authorities .... that disagree amongst themselves, or are just plain wrong, perhaps poorly researched. Most authorities, for instance, regard the South China Sea as the world's largest sea (Guinness Book of Records, Top 10 of Everything, to name just two) ... BUT 'The TIME almanac 2000' 'informs' me it is actually the 'Mediterranean Sea' (page 492). I'm sure I've seen other books tell me the 'Coral Sea' holds that achievement. As somebody who regularly attends trivia quizzes (not so much now but ... ) I have found it EXTREMELY frustrating .... to yell out an answer for a prize, be told it's 'Wrong' ...  and they have one of the alternative 'answers'. Happens with deserts too, depending on how / whether they break them up or lump say the various Australian deserts all into one.

On the subject of ages, I have found wide variances too in many books about different celebrities ages. Particularly those born more than 50 years ago. As they have 'Who am I ' type questions, and will often supply year of birth, for a while, I was seriously trying to commit to memory the various celebrities birth years. One book says this, another that ......

I found out somewhere on the web this is often due to celebrities deliberately lying .....  in some instances, to try to appear younger than they were. Other times, there were no good records available ....  their birth certificates ... maybe born somewhere before these started to be regularly issued ..

So, it is little wonder, that amateur contributors make 'mistakes' ... when the books we can buy from which they borrow, are often so flawed too .........

On the page for the tv music composer Ronnie Hazlehurst, someone included wrongly details that he composed a best selling song which he did not write (I cannot remember which song).  When RH died last October (2007), many leading newspapers in the UK included this credit to his name in the obits, all because the press only reseached on wiki.

From the obit of Ronnie Hazlehurst in the Guardian.

"Hazlehurst often did just that. His easygoing style was born of a meticulous manner. Never self-important, he was glad to have had a career in music and, such was his good humour, he would have chortled at a prespammersite online hoax which has had him widely credited with a late career turn by composing S Club 7's hit Reach (2000). Of course, if they had asked him, he would have had a go at providing something."

What are you supposed to meditate on?  How you just made the tea or coffee?

To my understanding, the meditation is dependent on the accomplanying tea.

Examples- Wuyi Oolong is dubbed "The Cup Of Poetry", and thus goes well when observing poetry.
The recommended "Beginner's Mind" tea is Spring Cherry green.

There are Health teas for those who are experiencing illnesses of different sorts, rare & more expensive teas for the jaded palate, and decaffeinated teas for those who want the flavor, but not the "pep".

There is even a few teas that are made to help with noble causes, such as Panda Berry Decaf & Kid's Cuppa. A portion of those tea sales are sent to Sunny Hills Services, which help with traumatized childredn, teens & their families.

Different herbs are used in different teas.

Example- For a sore throat, I have found that licorice tea works best. Others use a lemon honey tea.

For general energy, ginger tea works well.

It also depends on where the tea leaves are from, and what grade they are.

Most tea leaves grow in India, China, Formosa & Nepal.
Some are smoked, while others are pressed. Yet others are rolled into balls, and still others are sun-dried.
All these things go into the tea creation process.

But there's plenty of room on the Boards for multiple talents.....it just makes it all the more fun. Sometimes one talented person will be more creative for a period and then someone else takes over while they're in a lull.

Not too long ago (before we got smacked for bad behaviour) everyone was firing simultaneously and it was really dynamic. that's WHY it got out of hand...too much adult creativity.  Those who add to the creativity with pictures make it more fun for the rest of us because we all see something different in the pictures and comment accordingly (of course, Howard always sees the same thing in every picture  ;D).

Dagnabit !  I'm only just clocking on to the fact you guys are experiencing probs in this regard. Read something along the lines in 'Happy Hour' ... (last 30 mins ? ) .... but figured that was just imageshack maybe temporarily playing up ?

This can screw with the presentation of the graphics .... making you see one thing, whilst others see something totally different ! So to me, that siglines been perfect last several days, since ball addition.

The '.' ... which Phil's noticed ... was added, when bizarelly / frustratingly, in its absence, I could not position the ball above his head. I added the dot as a 'work around'.

I'll restart this machine, and see if I can get to the bottom of this !  >:(  :(

Plot Summary:

The story takes place during three years of the Great Depression in the fictional "tired old town" of Maycomb, Alabama. The narrator, six-year-old Scout Finch, lives with her older brother Jem and their widowed father Atticus, a middle-aged lawyer. Jem and Scout befriend a boy named Dill who visits Maycomb to stay with his aunt for the summer. The three children are terrified by, and fascinated with, their neighbor, the reclusive "Boo" Radley. The adults of Maycomb are hesitant to talk about Boo and for many years, few have seen him. The children feed each other's imaginations with rampant rumors about his grotesque appearance and his reasons for remaining hidden, and they dream of ways to get him to come out of his house. Following two summers of friendship with Dill, Scout and Jem find that someone is leaving them small gifts in a tree outside the Radley place. Several times, the mysterious Boo makes gestures of affection to the children, but, to their disappointment, never appears in person.

Atticus is assigned to defend a black man named Tom Robinson, who has been accused of raping Mayella Ewell, a young white woman. Although many of Maycomb's citizens disapprove, Atticus agrees to defend Tom to the best of his ability. Scout is subjected to other children taunting Atticus, calling him a "******-lover", and she is tempted to stand up for her father's honor by fighting, even though he has told her not to. For his part, Atticus faces a group of men intent on lynching Tom, but this danger is averted when Scout, Jem, and Dill shame the mob into dispersing by forcing them to view the situation from Atticus' and Tom's points of view.

Because Atticus does not want them to be present at Tom Robinson's trial, Scout, Jem, and Dill watch in secret from the colored balcony. Atticus establishes that the accusers – Mayella and her father, Bob Ewell, the town drunk – are lying. It also becomes clear that the friendless Mayella was making sexual advances towards Tom and that her father caught her in the act. Despite significant evidence of Tom's innocence, he is convicted. Jem's faith in justice is badly shaken, as is Atticus', when a hopeless Tom is shot and killed while trying to escape from prison.

Bob Ewell is humiliated by the trial and vows revenge. He spits in Atticus' face on the street, tries to break into the judge's house, and menaces Tom Robinson's widow. Finally, he attacks the defenseless Jem and Scout as they walk home from a Halloween pageant at their school. Jem's arm is broken in the struggle, but, amid the confusion, someone comes to their rescue. The mysterious man carries Jem home, where Scout eventually recognizes him as the reclusive Boo Radley.

Maycomb's sheriff arrives and discovers that Bob Ewell has been killed. The sheriff argues with Atticus about the prudence and ethics of holding Jem or Boo responsible. Atticus eventually accepts the sheriff's story that Ewell simply fell on his own knife. Boo asks Scout to walk him home, and after she says goodbye to him at his front door, he disappears again. While standing on the Radley porch, Scout imagines life from Boo's perspective and regrets that they never repaid him for the gifts he had given them.

Well, the American version was hosted by Drew Carey (who turned 50 today!), and featured Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie in just about every episode. Wayne Brady was also a regular performer on the US version, although he wasn't a regular during the first season (1998-99). By 1999 he became a regular. There are always four performers on the show, three of which have usually been Stiles, Mochrie, and Brady.

Notable "fourth performers" have included:
Brad Sherwood
Chip Esten
Greg Proops
Kathy Greenwood
Jeff Davis
Whoopi Goldberg
Karen Maruyama (sp?)
Kathy Griffin
...among others, depending upon the episode.

Killer Sudoku

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/e4/Killersudoku_bw.svg/407px-Killersudoku_bw.svg.png

The objective is to fill the grid with numbers from 1 to 9 in a way that the following conditions are met:


Each row, column, and nonet contains each number exactly once.
The sum of all numbers in a cage must match the small number printed in its corner.
No number appears more than once in a cage. (This is the standard rule for killer sudokus, and implies that no cage can include more than 9 cells.)

Like compound interest?

What's that?
Compound interest is the concept of adding accumulated interest back to the principal, so that interest is earned on interest from that moment on. The act of declaring interest to be principal is called compounding (i.e. interest is compounded). A loan, for example, may have its interest compounded every month: in this case, a loan with $1000 principal and 1% interest per month would have a balance of $1010 at the end of the first month.

Interest rates must be comparable in order to be useful, and in order to be comparable, the interest rate and the compounding frequency must be disclosed. Since most people think of rates as a yearly percentage, many governments require financial institutions to disclose a (notionally) comparable yearly interest rate on deposits or advances. Compound interest rates may be referred to as Annual Percentage Rate, Effective interest rate, Effective Annual Rate, and by other terms. When a fee is charged up front to obtain a loan, APR usually counts that cost as well as the compound interest in converting to the equivalent rate. These government requirements assist consumers to more easily compare the actual cost of borrowing.

Compound interest rates may be converted to allow for comparison: for any given interest rate and compounding frequency, an "equivalent" rate for a different compounding frequency exists.

Compound interest may be contrasted with simple interest, where interest is not added to the principal (there is no compounding). Compound interest predominates in finance and economics, and simple interest is used infrequently (although certain financial products may contain elements of simple interest).

Compound interest is the concept of adding accumulated interest back to the principal, so that interest is earned on interest from that moment on. The act of declaring interest to be principal is called compounding (i.e. interest is compounded). A loan, for example, may have its interest compounded every month: in this case, a loan with $1000 principal and 1% interest per month would have a balance of $1010 at the end of the first month.

Interest rates must be comparable in order to be useful, and in order to be comparable, the interest rate and the compounding frequency must be disclosed. Since most people think of rates as a yearly percentage, many governments require financial institutions to disclose a (notionally) comparable yearly interest rate on deposits or advances. Compound interest rates may be referred to as Annual Percentage Rate, Effective interest rate, Effective Annual Rate, and by other terms. When a fee is charged up front to obtain a loan, APR usually counts that cost as well as the compound interest in converting to the equivalent rate. These government requirements assist consumers to more easily compare the actual cost of borrowing.

Compound interest rates may be converted to allow for comparison: for any given interest rate and compounding frequency, an "equivalent" rate for a different compounding frequency exists.

During the last few years we lived in a mobile home (mid 1990s to 2000), we had neighbors that would blast their car stereos so that everyone down the street could hear 'em... and we had to constantly complain to the management. Thank heavens we got out of there when we did; the mobile home park neighborhood was going downhill anyways.

Well, the buses in the Los Angeles area are pretty decent. There have been rare occasions when they haven't shown up at all, though. :-\\ And in April of 2006, I had an experience when the driver missed an important turn onto the last street, which resulted in me missing the train. :(

Our first TV set (which we had for most of the 80's) had one knob, with all the VHF channels (2 through 13), and six spots for UHF channels ("U1" through "U6"), which we could customize ourselves. However, due to our location at the time, we never picked up UHF channels very well at all...except for KCET (a PBS affiliate, channel 28) occasionally.

However, if you wish to write 40, XXXX is not the way to do it. XL is.

Hey, that also stands for "extra large"! :D So if you see a shirt that says "XXL" on the front of it, keep in mind that that's NOT a roman numeral; it only means "extra extra large".

In the United Kingdom, the X certificate was issued between 1951 and 1982 by the British Board of Film Censors. It was introduced as a result of the Wheare Report on film censorship. From 1951 to 1970, it meant "Suitable for those aged 16 and over", and from 1970 to 1982 it was redefined as meaning "Suitable for those aged 18 and over." The X certificate was replaced in 1982 by the 18 certificate.
