    That and Panama got on my last nerve. I wasn't exactly a big VH fan to begin with and only dug a couple of their tunes, but those two irritated me to no end.

    This tragedy happened when I was finishing up the 7th grade, and while being creeped out all night long with the news reports, I would have never guessed that there'd be any connection to it effecting the end-of-the-year school picnic that was scheduled for our Catholic grade school the following day, yet by a weird coincidence Tower Park and Armory in Ft. Thomas was where we had planned to hold our picnic, and the Armory Gymnasium just happened...

    I knew a devout Italian Catholic man and WWII Vet who at the time made his living in the catering business. He and his wife had tickets to attend the John Davidson show that evening, and time and again he reminded his staff of a dinner they were catering that he had to cut out early to go make the show, and that he wanted to make sure that nothing interfered with him being able to smoothly break away in time to go pick up his wife and make the...

    Not yet, but the big ugly white (and orange) monstrosity of a building caught me off guard as I was driving past it the other day. At first I thought that a giant white truck was blocking my view of the building, then I realized that it was the building. :eek: The place has been various things over the years, and mostly nothing in recent years, and I'm happy that it's going to finally be used for something, yet not at all thrilled with the...

    My Dad used to say "prit near" and "howdy do" ,and though he was raised in Covington in the 20's & 30's, and was a stickler for speaking perfect English, and was hardcore schooled at St. Patrick's and Covington Catholic, my grandfather was raised I believe in Gallatin County, so perhaps these were casual phrases that he had picked up from him.

    That's cool if you dig it. I recall initially being eager to hear the new Starship tune when MTV first played it, but was left saying "What the hell was that"?....then I thought "Well maybe it'll grow on me" ,but really it just grated on me...LOL

    Though she has forever enjoyed what she has monetarily reaped from the song, when originally presented with the song, Starship vocalist Grace Slick absolutely hated it. In other words she sold out.

    Just about every good 70's band that tried to remain relevant by conforming to the 80's MTV era pretty much cheese balled me out except for maybe a few bands like Yes. They abandoned what they did best, and commercially pop-polished themselves up. Nothing wrong with the 80's sound as many great bands established themselves in that era, and I understand how some bands wanted to change with the times, but it was embarrassing to watch bands...

    As a Catholic grade school student in the 70's we were obligated to attend Mass daily, and in my 8 years of that experience I witnessed very few children throughout the entire school who ever showed much interest, whereas the majority pretty much groaned that it was a dreaded chore, and an even lesser amount of those kids could be spotted attending the "you're going straight to hell if you miss the Sunday obligated Mass". I attended every Sunday...

    Just as always young children can be indoctrinated to believe in just about anything, and many college age kids begin to question things more deeply, however it does appear that whereas in the past people were more inclined to hold onto religious beliefs into adulthood, a newer generation may be quicker to question the validity of what their elders pass off as factual while earlier recognizing with more clarity that these beliefs are unprovable....

    My Dad was born in 1919, and one of the phrases that he used when either someone made an inaccurate comment, or was trying to pass off nonsense as fact was... "Your rear is full of blue mud" .... which of course is another way of saying... "You're full of it", or other various ways to say that phrase... Throughout my life I had never heard one other person say it the way my Dad did, nor did I ever know its origins or think to ask,...

    I can't answer your initial question, and my apologies if I'm misreading this as a green light for an open discussion regarding ISIS, but I found this to be an interesting read. Hard to swallow if accurate. Admittedly I'm lacking in my knowledge of foreign affairs regarding all of the complexities of the Middle East to be able to determine if it's completely on point, or rather just a misleading analysis. The writer of the piece, a...

    Wow 12-15 years, he was in deep, wasn't he? I feel sorry for you and him. No doubt in my mind that he has suffered withdrawal, and still might to some degree. That's a lot of years to get all of that programming out of your system. I'm sure that win or lose, good or bad, he'd tell you that he learned a lot from his experience, and without throwing the baby out with the bath water, there truly are things about success principals that can...

    Glad the show was good, and I get where you're coming from on IronTom. Seems like the band is solid from the videos, but the lead singer looks out of place and hard to watch. IMO they'd do better to find a lead dude who didn't come off as so amateurish, forgettable, and cringe worthy.

    Looks like the two main dudes of Motherfolk are Maysville natives and Mason County graduates with the remaining bandmates from the NKY/Cincy area who've toured their sound around the country and are getting noticed. Here's a video with live footage from the Bunbury Festival at Sawyer Point, and also on Fountain Square.

    How long was your brother involved with it, and about how long ago was this? I've no doubt that the premise is now essentially the same as it was when I was in it 25 years ago with some changes with the arrival of the internet. Was he seriously ate up with it, and if so did he experience any psychological withdrawal when he quit? After being so wrapped up where it becomes people's lives and they're fully brainwashed, they tend to suffer with...

    They do indeed very much mislead up front, starting while prospecting you with rehearsed out-of-the-blue casual so-called regular friendly in passing conversation while inflating your ego, and slipping in little hints that they're an entrepreneur into some profitable projects with other professionals, while putting you at ease with topics of common interests with hopes that you divulge things about yourself as if you're both establishing some...

    I was going to respond to The Professor in another thread, but before I knew it, just like always, I had WAY too much to say, and thought that I'd start another thread just for kicks to see if anyone else has ever had any involvement with Amway, be it yourself, or friends or family members that you closely know who have had their experiences with it. Though I would never do anything like that ever again, I must admit that I find the topic...

    I noticed that Torrent Falls Rock Climbing Adventure is the second spot highlighted on your map. Many many years ago I was in Amway for a year, and a guy and his wife Mark & Kathy Meyer were in my upline, and the ones that 'trained" me the most. I've not been in touch with them since I quit sometime in the early 90's, but by searching for them online I discovered that they are the ones who operate the Torrent Falls R.C.A. along with...

    I've been wondering myself too just how long this spinoff can last before it fizzles out. I hope that it works, but can see where it might not. One thing to consider though is that with this boy being 9 the writers do have room to work while watching him grow up and go off to college. I'm assuming that much of the material can spawn from the various things Sheldon had ever mentioned about his childhood, yet they're going to have to prove...

    I don't drink that much anymore, but will occasionally get a hankering for a beer. Being diabetic I always order a lite beer, and while just about anyone of them would do, typically when I'm at a bar I'll ask for a Miller Lite because they'll undoubtedly have it, yet if I want to go with even less carbs I'll go for a Michelob Ultra.
