Well i've had jeeps all my life. Jeep - Just Empty Every Pocket. I'm thinking that prepares me for boat ownership. All I want to do is spend some afternoons in our back bays sailing, sunning on the deck and maybe dropping in a fishing line. I'd like to dock it fairly close to where I'll be using it...

If purchasing a used sailboat, even small, inspect it thouroughly (yes I am a horrible speller) Hull integrety is very important. Make sure the boat is solid. Sails can be replaced but bad fiberglass or loose hardware can get expensive. Decide what you want to do with the boat. Make sure it is comfo...

Sail Magazine

4 or 5 years ago Sail Magazine had a great article on chartering tips on living together for first timers on overnighters. I have some first timers and would like them to read it instead of giving a lecture. Does anyone out there remember this? If you do a scan of the article would be much appreciat...

Speaking of Walmart....

How about the people that protest at the zoning meeting that they don't want an evil walmart in their town then fight to be one of the first few through the door at the grand opening?

We all know why he is here ragtop, I am somewhat annoyed that he actually provoked a response from me on this one. Responding only gives him more incentive to post more. I just thank my lucky stars that there isn't someone posting a daily horoscope thread.

People that believe that the government has the solution to all their problems.

If someone came on this website and continuely spouted off about how well we are doing in Iraq and war is great and we need to support Bush etc.... I would be saying the same thing. Maybe it's time to find a more appropriate website. In my opinion he does this to stir the pot within this website an...

Yup, flyboy I'll have to agree with you. If only those Citadel men hadn't harrassed the women the terrorists wouldn't have been motivated to hijack 4 planes and ram them into buildings. Maybe if we make our women wear tents the terrorists would not continue to attempt to blow up airplanes departing ...

I spent 4 years in the Army and pretty much everything out of my recruiters mouth was a lie. I was told that I would have choice of duty station, and Korea, and Kuwait were not my choice. Pretty much everyone I knew in the Army was lied to or made false pomises to get them to enlist. Although the t...

I agree that his voice has sounded pretty good lately. I did think he sounded a little 'off' at the beginning of the year, but that last leg was great. Back in the Spring I had thought about skipping a Vegas show this year. After hearing the last few shows I quickly changed my mind.

I checked 3 hours after the sale started and there were some d's for 2. When the sale starts thousands are looking for best seats avail and have a few minutes to purchase. Many do not, releasing the tickets after the initial rush. If you are unable to find seats, wait until closer to the show. Ticke...

College road trip to Atlantic City, we diverted to Princeton to meet Brooke Shields. (This is when she was attending) We had a van, 9 passengers, a keg, a sober driver and the time of our lives. We never met Brooke.
