That was fun! Thanks! Think I'll skip the ham but would love to go be godzilla in the river. The car is lovely, btw.

Hey Ben: Gooc writing. Like your style and descriptions. One always needs a good "road trip" once in a while. I'm long overdue myself.

John Drew,John Tibbs is the station owner and oterapor. He is in charge of this whole thing. There is no job as he is a volunteer. Everyone and everything you hear on this station has been paid for out of pocket by just a few folks. We are not operating a professional, corporate sounding radio station. We are unprofessional and will make mistakes. But what sets us apart is that we have absolutely no affiliation with large corporate conglomerates, making us truly independent. We also have absolutely no commercials! I also think we have one of the most eclectic blues musical libraries out there.We do appreciate the criticism and are always striving to make ourselves more professional but I just hope you understand that this is a very small, volunteer operation. We do our best and have a good time doing it. One goal in the detour network is to get away from stations operating on 24/7 automation. We invite anyone interested in doing a show to contact us at either or we will be glad to help you get on the air, no matter how unprofessional you are!

i adore everything about this post. i fell in love with her dress long borefe you told me it was her grandmother's dress, and then even more! how meaninful. you've captured her simple heartfelt expressions too; i feel like i know her. what a special thing that you got to capture this intimate moment, when they were first officially husband and wife, without all the hullabaloo of a wedding. and then they got to still have the big wedding too!

Well argued, It has awlyas been an obvious argument you put on weight when you eat more than you need excercising will never reduce weight on a body badly nourished.Eating the right food is more difficult nowadays with modern habits as against old -time habits when food was made from fresh ingredients and you knew what was going in the pan and then in your stomach, not so nowadays. Keep up the campaign it is much easier to eat healthier with all that is available but knowing what is best needs to be learnt and all processed food should be put to the sword, apart from corned-beef and baked beans !!!!

Thanks, Gina! That is also the lesson I got from this ecnprieexe. While I wish the little duck didn't have to die, I feel fortunate to have crossed his path so I could give it some peace and comfort in his final moments. He really did seem to ecnprieexe a peaceful exit. When I approached, he seemed a little panicky; but after I knelt before him, he seemed to relax. I was completely focused on him. For those few moments, it was as if no other creatures existed in the universe. Six years prior to this ecnprieexe, I sat vigil with my Grandma as she exited this world. The memory of being with her as she took her final breaths is both traumatic and beautiful for me. While I wont discuss the trauma of those moments and the sadness I feel when I remember, the beauty was that we seemed to connect on a spiritual level in her final hours, and that was beautiful. With Grandma, there was also a long moment in which it felt as though there were no other creatures in our world. It was just me and Grandma having a spiritual conversation and it felt like she was amused by my inaudible banter. Though that visit probably lasted less than an hour, it seemed to last several. Actually, as I took the exit to visit her in the hospital, they gave her the morphine which made it impossible for us to visit in the physical sense. And, as I took that exit, I had a vision, or some might call it a daydream, of me and my Grandma romping around exploring Heaven together! The dream made me believe there was a chance she and I might be going together, so sometimes I certainly do wonder Why the heck am I still here?

Hi Bramus,Very nice script you have there! Unfortunatly I'm not the best with japciarsvt and completly new to AJAX. I linked the bar with a keyCheck method, so if I press spacebar, the bar begins to load (animated) to 100%. I want that if I press spacebar again, the bar is setted to 0% unanimated and then goes to 100% again animated.Is there a way to just reset' the bar without animations? I came up with something like:this.options.animate = false myJsProgressBarHandler.setPercentage( element1 ,'0 );this.options.animate = true myJsProgressBarHandler.setPercentage( element1 ,'100 );return false;But didn't work (bar didn't show percentage at all). I even tried to write a new setAnimate(animation) function by changing the defaultOptions var, but that didn't work. Can you help me?Thanks in advance!

Hello Patricia,Generally, I would always try and use orinagc or at least locally grown and in season when consuming fruits and vegetables in their raw state. However, some research suggests that most of the pesticides are to be found in the fibrous content of the fruit and vegetable, which is normally discarded once the juice has been extracted. This would therefore eliminate the amount you would consume. However, you can also try peeling and also washing your produce in a solution of hydrogen peroxide and water and then rinsing in a solution of water and vinegar. If you can find orinagc and it is within your budget, then go for that option. If not, try and choose produce that has the least concentration of pesticide e.g. those that have a protective skin or something that can be peeled.I appreciate your comment and I hope this helps.Tamara
