  1. So often times it happens, that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we have the key. Already Gone- The Eagles.
  2. Are you freakin' kidding??? Ok then how about a draft so no rich kid can get out of serving in these never-ending wars and no deferments for a cyst on the ***. We never should have been there to begin with. Do you understand how many deployments these boys have had??
  3. Fred, your absolutely right. Check out the ravioli, spaghetti and beef-a-roni. It's soy as well plus it's loaded with high fructose corn syrup. It also pours like soup. Not the same product it used to be.
  4. I forgot all about the "Phil Packer episode. I think he started to eat part of his mustache. There were so many funny episodes. Bobby and the frogs jumping on Greg and his dates' pizza and the umbrella going through the convertible top. The one that i always remember, don't ask me why is when Greg's girlfriend and Marcia are trying out for head cheerleader and Greg brings her home and eggs her on to practice her cheer to tick Marcia off because she dated Gregs rival- Warren Maleny (sp). The cheer stuck in my head. FFFIL, LLLMO, OOORE Filmore junior high! Ugh remember that? Hope your carrot c
  5. Beast of Burden is also good. Respectable is a great lesser known song and Keith's Before They Make Me Run, which pertains to his drug use. The line in it where he says " I wasn't looking too good, but I was feeling real well" must have been an awakening for him.
  6. I've always felt I should have lived through the 60's not merely born then. Lucky you. Great music and passionate, spirited people. We need more of that today. Great clothes back then too. I have my moccasins and buffalo sandals and I'll never part with them.
  7. Yes, apologies to you Vautrin, I'm a bit slow on the uptake some days. Did you happen to catch the movie "Stoned" a few yrs ago? Supposedly at one time a builder for Jones told someone about Brian's death but then retracted his story.
  8. Vautrin,It was Andrew Loog Oldman. I'm not sure if it was he that coined them the bad boys of rock n roll. Love your take on Bill Wyman.
  9. I love Rockford too! James Garner has always been a favorite of mine. He always seemed like a nice person in life. Whenever I hear the phone ring and his voice saying, "this is Jim Rockford", it takes me right back to the 1970's. Very fun and nostalgic. Angel always cracks me up when he's on an episode. What a goofball. ????
  10. Laffite, Thank you so much for the recommendations. It makes it easier to choose when someone else had seen them and relays their likes. I appreciate you took the time to do that for me.
  11. They could have done so much with the show and it's a shame. I liked all the characters. As for me, I identified more with the freaks but the geeks are fun. Just as Lindsey decided to become a "deadhead", it's over. So much could have aspired. That's great you got the dvd with the music. To me that's extremely important. It's part of what makes it great. I watched the season a few times and each time I cannot believe they canceled it.
  12. This guy, Theo Bronkhorst said "If we do not use wildlife sustainably, there will be no wildlife." I don't know what he means. Is there an overpopulation of lions with tracking devices? No wildlife should ever be hunted into extinction.
  13. Yes I did, actually we are re-watching it again. What a perfect song on the last episode, Badfinger's Baby Blue. I found myself really liking Walt. Skyler not so much. I get where she was coming from. Just something about her irritated me. Bryan Cranston was very good. I liked the character of Jesse as well.I've watched a few series on Netflix. Now I'm at a loss of what to watch. Dexter?? I actually got my husband to start enjoying the old movies, especially pre-codes but since Weeds and Breaking Bad he's having a difficult time going back to them.
  14. I watched three tv programs- Breaking Bad, Weeds and Freaks and Geeks. Enjoyed all three although BB was a little more violent in some episodes. F&G was only one season. I did enjoy it especially the first episode when Nick says "Hey I've seen God, I felt his power. He plays drums for Led Zeppelin and his name is John Bonham baby!"
  15. I saw one flying squirrel in my life and this cat reminded me of it.
  16. Thanks for posting this. I didn't know she passed away. I must live under a rock. This was my favorite song of hers. My Mom loved country music, so I grew up with all the oldies of country.
  17. Tobacco Road is listed on Amazon for region 2 only and on a bootleg site (I think). Other than that I can't seem to find it.
  18. We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them. Albert Einstein I do love quotes. They not only make you think, they make you think about yourself. Sepiatone, Lao Tzu lived in the 6th century BCE. I wanted to put that down but I forgot. I must dig out my James Gang and give a listen, though I'm not sure if I have their first album. Tonearm- thank you! I couldn't think of that word for nothing!
  19. I truly do not understand the mind of a man like this. He paid $50,000 to do that!! There's no possible way that he could feel like a real hunter doing this. I did see that 400 people were protesting at his office. The two men from Zimbabwe were released and supposedly the Zimbabwe police were looking for this dentist. If it's legal why would they be looking for him? Appeasement? Ugh. It's disgusting and he is a vile, despicable human being.
  20. We had a Silver Moon in my hometown too, although it's been gone for many years. Now it's a produce market/antiques and a Golds gym. So many beautiful places are gone...in just one lifetime.
  21. Watch your thoughts; They become words. Watch your words; They become actions. Watch your actions; They become habits. Watch your habits; They become character. Watch your character; It becomes your destiny. Lao Tzu Dargo, It's funny about Her Majesty at the end of Abbey Road in that I can't recall when I learned that little song was there. I had the album and played it often, never knowing it was there...until one time I was a little slow to remove the record player arm. Very surprising but then again so was the strange one at the end of Sgt Pepper.
  22. The only disco I ever went to was in Germany. It was called 50/50. It was a big hangout for the soldiers as well as the locals. Every time I was there they always played Born in the U.S.A. by Springsteen. The Americans loved it although it usually made us want to go home to "the world."
  23. There were some great quotes on here. Mine is probably not considered a quote but it is how I try to live. "And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make" Beatles
  24. Germany has been way ahead of us. In the early 80's they were already recycling all garbage/glass/paper. There is a village called Wildpoldsried that produces 321% more energy than they require. They use solar, biogas digesters, 7 windmills and hydro power plants. Germany doesn't see the sun daily and they've been using solar for years. They've dismantled all nuclear facilities. Thanks Ham for finding the photos of Centralia. Like Tiki said the winter is the most strange and eerie time with the steam pockets. I haven't read up on the keystone pipeline. I am told by family living in
