  1. Go to a Neurologist for the second opinion.

  3. If they are ten feet apart in any direction, isn't one of them a crowder, and the other ready to whip him with a rod?
  4. Quick, violent, in public. It's the only way I could do it, because I could not "pre-meditate murder," but I could be driven to exact revenge in a fit of "temporary insanity." And BTW, I have two daughters, ages 6 and 13.
  5. Yeah, all of that, ditto.
  6. I would soo take that to a Jimmy Buffett tailgate. That looks like the ultimate Parrothead vehicle!
  7. Thanks. I look at my hectic life, and get a little overwhelmed sometimes, then I snap back to reality and realize that I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams, and am achieving far beyond anyone else's expectations. If you are coming in Friday, come early, the mass starts at 10am, but doors open at 9:30am, and parking/traffic will not be pleasant. PM sent.
  8. When I was a teenager, I had a room in the basement that had a utility sink, I pissed in there and rinsed it out with running water, and occasional bleach. Truckers use bottles. When camping, I go outside, I don't know why I never thought of the jug! Camping 2009 will include at least 1 big bottle of Gatorade now!
  9. These folks won the lottery of life already, now they want more I'd be real happy with: my life, $5,000 and 1st class tickets.
  10. Foreign
  11. Oh yeah, I have 4 years clean today. I'm going to see my kids off to school (the ones I could have lost), from the home that never would have been purchased (had I not gotten clean). Then I'm going to suit up, drive to work (with a valid license which I hadn't had for 16 years, until I got clean), and I'm going to attempt to help some still suffering adddicts (what a concept). I'll then get back in the vehicle (without having to put 10 pieces of gum in my mouth and watch the rear view more than the front), and come home to my wife (who had every reason to leave me at one point). Due to my work schedule tomorrow, I wont be able to make an actual meeting, but I can for the next 4 days, and hopefully will, between the viewing, funeral, school, and family. I was hopeless, helpless, jobless, and suicidal exactly 4 years ago. I got help, and continue to get help through the twelve steps. I have a life beyond my wildest dreams already, and they tell me that "more will be revealed..."
  12. Sorry I didn't get this on here sooner guys, its been a bit hectic at work since Monday am I have had the pleasure of speaking 1 on 1 with Fr. Martin on many occasions, he leaves us a huge legacy. I can assure you, that his work continues. (see my occupation in my profile, and add 2+2) Father Joseph Martin - Obituary Father Joseph Martin, S.S. October 12, 1924, March 9, 2009 Father Joseph Charles Martin, S.S., co-founder of Father Martin's Ashley, an addiction treatment center in Havre de Grace, Md., and a noted authority and lecturer on alcoholism, died at the age of 84 at his home in Havre de Grace. Best known for his lectures on alcoholism as a disease, delivered to alcoholics and their families with his charismatic style and sense of humor, Father Martin is credited with saving the lives of thousands of alcoholics and addicts. While he retired from active management in 2003, he continued to lecture at Father Martin's Ashley, addressing patients as recently as November 2008. His "Chalk Talk on Alcohol" lecture, which began "I'm Joe Martin, and I'm an alcoholic," and more than 40 films are legendary. His films, which have been translated into multiple languages, continue to be used at treatment centers around the world, in hospitals, substance abuse programs, industry and most branches of the U.S. government. He is the author of several publications including Chalk Talks on Alcohol, published by Harper & Row in 1982, which is still in print. He and Father Martin's Ashley co-founder Mae Abraham raised funds to buy and renovate Oakington, the estate owned by the widow of U.S. Senator Millard Tydings on the Chesapeake Bay near Havre de Grace. The treatment center, which opened in 1983, has since provided treatment and program services to more than 40,000 people suffering from the disease of addiction, and their families. Two years after Father Martin's Ashley opened its doors, Forbes magazine ranked it as one of the top ten addiction treatment facilities in the country. Patients at the 85-bed facility come from the East Coast and across the U.S., where it has a reputation for treating alcohol and drug addiction and relapse with respect for the dignity of each individual who enters its doors. In 1972, the United States Navy filmed "The Blackboard Talk," which they then dubbed "The Chalk Talk." It became known throughout the U.S. military and established Father Martin as a recognized leader in the addiction treatment field. In 1991, Father Martin was invited by Pope John Paul II to participate in the Vatican's International Conference on Drugs and Alcohol. He made four trips to Russia under the auspices of the International Institute on Alcohol Education and Training, and also traveled to Switzerland and Poland so speak to Alcoholics Anonymous groups and to addiction counselors in training. Father Martin's honors and awards include the Andrew White medal from Loyola College, Baltimore, for his contributions to the general welfare of the citizenry of Maryland; Rutgers Summer School of Alcohol Studies Distinguished Service Award (1988); and Norman Vincent Peale Award (1992). Born the fourth of seven children in Baltimore on October 12, 1924, Father Martin graduated from Loyola High School in 1942 where he was valedictorian, and attended Loyola College (1942-44). He studied for the priesthood at St. Mary's Seminary on Paca Street (1944-45) and at St Mary's in Roland Park (1945-48), and was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Baltimore in 1948. The following year he entered the Society of St. Sulpice, a community of priests devoted to the formation and education of seminarians and priests. He taught English and History both at St. Joseph's College in Mountain View, Calif., (1948-56), and at St. Charles College, Catonsville, Md., (1956-68). From 1968-70 he served as chaplain at the mother house of the Oblate Sisters of Providence in Baltimore. While serving at St. Charles College, Father Martin began his recovery from alcoholism. Following treatment, he worked as a lecturer and educator in the Division of Alcohol Control for the state of Maryland, prior to founding Father Martin's Ashley. Father Martin always had a very special concern for priests in trouble. In this, he remained faithful to his Sulpician vocation throughout his life. Father Martin is survived by Mae and Tommy Abraham, with whom he lived for more than 30 years, two sisters Dorothy and Frances, his brother, Edward and numerous nieces, nephews and their children. The viewing will be held on Thursday, March 12, from 1 pm to 9 pm at St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore. Father Martin's Mass of Celebration of the Resurrection will be held on Friday, March 13 at 10 am at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Cathedral Street, Baltimore, Md. Interment will be private.

  13. ...and then the Messiah said "free thy Kitties, and show thy world we are not bad, but good, and there was a brief moment of peace until the Kitties re-united in thy countryland just 90 miles to the North, and gave thy Messiah reason to regret thy decision..." to be continued...
  14. I don't think it can be your neighbor's cat, and wild at the same time.
  15. I haven't seen Ray Ray, but I found your star QB, he's the poster chid for 'Ugly Guys Can Still Get Lucky'
  16. Yeah, and Baltimore gets the win, at the last game at that god awful stadium, with the Cowgirls highly favored, with tons of of ex-players in attendance. The place was poised to have a big party afterwords, and somebody took the wind right out of their sails-it's what the Ravens do, the Ravens play Ravens football. Sorry Belicheat doesn't get a chance to film AFC Championship playbooks this year, and the post-season is Manningless-awwwwwwwwww.
  17. Ravens-Steelers IS the Superbowl. Anything after that is anti-climactic, because the survivor of that match is unbeatable 2 weeks later.
  18. I like the way you think, with the body bags and all, but expect a little more passing than normal from both teams. Sorry Philly fans, but the AFC Championship game IS the Superbowl this year.
  19. Suggs will play, not every D down, but likely alot of the potential passing downs.
  20. If that's the case, then maybe we could say that Baltimore would have beat Pgh in the their last game if the refs didn't overturn a call on completely disputable evidence. There was also a blatant bad spot in that game that led to Pgh's field goal. As a big Ravens fan, I was upset, but oh well; shoulda, woulda, coulda. The Ravens should have never put themselves in that position. How about the phantom 15 yard penalty against Suggs in the 1st TN Balto match this season? Oh well, right? There were also several questionable calls against the Ravens in this weeks game, including one that very well could have been a safety against TN. And a controversial extra down, that as far as I know, has been shrugged off by the NFL. Oh well, shoulda, woulda, coulda. The official play clock is not the one you see on TV, I'll admit, it probably should have been called, but don't you think the #1 seed in the league should have been able to produce a few more points against the #6 seed? Did TN really lose that game because a snap was made late by Baltimore and not called? Do you not think that the Ravens have a bad-a$$ D, that makes good teams play poorly? The Titans should have never put themselves in that position. The officiating was not very good on either side in that game, and many others this year, but I think it balances out.
  21. Ed Reed just bought a boat
  22. Is that you Belicheat? Whats a matta? no playoffs up in New England?
  23. I usually tell them that the person they are calling for has passed away, and that we are in the middle of "final preparations."
