Chit Chat Thread for the week of June 30th 2008

 

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

I am not sure why GARMIN had to sign with that other crew when GARMIN could have signed with the POI Factory.

Not A Leg To Stand On !

As previously seen Sparky had a slight accident.
Well he was taken to the local hospital and checked out. I filmed him getting his x-ray. It indicated a broken leg.

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming---WOW!! WHAT A RIDE!!!" Member 2854

OK that was weird...

Not my lucky day today confused

I made 13 deliveries. After I received a tip for $6.66 things slid downhill fast. I was attacked by a pit bull. I escaped unscathed by fending off growling teeth with package that I hope was insured, because it's shredded. At least it wasn't my arm! surprised

I also locked my keys in the car... evil

and ran over a black cat on the way home... confused

Today's winning lotto numbers will be.. never-mind. wink

Smoke everywhere in the Sacramento area

Just spent a month in California and the last count I heard there were 1500 fires burning. We took off from Saramento airport and looking down from about 2000 feet, all you could see was a blanket of brown smoke everywhere. Couldn't see the ground.
By the way, top Delta Airlines speed on my Garmin 780 returning to Florida was 568 mph!

Are you ready for some football?

Like many others above, I too am anxiously awaiting the start of the football season. What is most interesting to me is that each year one of the teams in the very bottom of the NFL pile defies all of the predictions by the NFL prognosticators and rises to the top... If it happens again this year, I wonder which team it will be? Bottom-up predictions anyone?

Check your rearview mirror and I will bet that it got broken when you ran over that cat.

Hope you had some salt to throw over your shoulder.

I plan to live forever. So far, so good.

I agree with 8 Governors and even another Country!

Wow
Fires & Smoke, Mud Slides, High Temperature's, Floods, Tornado's, Hurricanes, Droughts.

What in the world did you all do to the Man to Pis_ him off so bad? Why not come to beautiful Cleveland Ohio where none of that stuff ever happens, Plus we have one of the worlds largest fresh water supply. And you can waste all you want.

Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland said that the idea below was a staple in his campaign speeches in 2006.

"In perhaps the not-too-distant future, people who once left for Arizona or the Carolinas will be coming back to Ohio," Strickland said. "And they'll be coming back because they're thirsty and we have what they need, Water and Lots of it."

Strickland has joined five other states in ratifying an agreement aimed at protecting the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes Compact is a framework between eight states and two Canadian provinces that seeks to prevent most diversions of water from the Great lakes' basin to arid states in the South and Southwest. "We will have the ability to maintain our precious natural resources and preserve and protect Lake Erie for generations to come"

Keep the Fresh water where it belongs. If you want it, move north to it! if you can't stand leaving the sun belt then just go to your local convenient store an buy it but the gallon, it's cheaper than Gasoline. smile and oh enjoy the sun!

What do you think of my profile picture?

Going over last year's vacation photos, I found this one that I just had to get on my profile.

For the curious, it was posted about here lat="48.62352" lon="-1.58228" near Mont St-Michel, France, a couple of hundred meters from the sea wall that marked the end of the lowland.

happy 4th

everyone have a happy and safe 4th of july weekend.

You call that a game!

And in Australia - Queensland are going to win the State of Origin - playing as I write just now - half time and the cockroaches (that is New South Wales) are ahead 10 to 8 Grrrrrr. For those from the US of A - State of Origin is one of the REAL football codes where players actually get into VERY physical play for 80 minutes no breaks except a short half time and which is - person per person - a far bigger event than anything in the USA (including any game and the political stuff) - Google "Rugby League"!

Rugby League players do not wear padding or helmets....

After the game - Queensland won 16 - 10 and took the series 2 - 1 for the third year in a row. Now that is a game!

Top speed

On a recent flight from Darwin to Brisbane (Australia - not Austria) the ground speed was over 1000kph - someone can convert that to mph. (Qantas 767)

I think fine

TB Rays - 2 (the team with the best record in baseball)
Red Sox - 0

Going for the sweep!

Rays Rule!

How About that? They're 2-1/2 games ahead of Boston, 7-1/2 ahead of the Yankees, and the closest team is the Chicago Cubs. You've got to wonder how Pinella feels about his old team doing even better than his Cubbies. I hope they can keep up the tremendous play for the rest of the season.
