Imagine NO more FReepathons. (/goo$ebumps)

Think about it, FRolks, where else will you have access to the world's news and happenings at your fingertips..

With commentary that is what it is .. witty, irreverent, straight up , no bull (and lots of it, sometimes) along with insight into issues from folks that were there or are now..

Yet FR has a light side too.. and then some, and did I mention its educative element, with info & links to lots of info.

btw .. Thanks to Tarpaulin for the vey educational mathematics pictorial guide thingy, now I know why the Egyptians and other early civilizations were fascinated with math and heavenly bodies... ;-)

Just a little bit goes a long way, too.

Have a good one and ...

Thanks!

Well, being that I've passed that stage sometime ago AND would never, ever want to relive that part over AND not want to take up space listing all the things I can think of......nothing!

My wife and I just had a good laugh. As she was making the bed she felt something under her foot. It was one of her Christmas presents I had forgotten about. I do that every year it seems. You'll love this Glock...it was Alton Browns book 'I'm Just Here for the Food'. LOL

This is right, my fiance & I both donate (me $10 and him $5) a month. I try to give a little more during the FReepathons when possible, too....

But if more people would just give a little bit more...

A few years back the Good Lord gave me a "stable" and a "rebirth"......Am truly blessed.....OTOH when it snows 2-3 feet, the water line freezes, and the neighbors knocks out the electricity with his backhoe, think about having a one room efficiency in town.

Reading old FReepathon threads is how we train during the off-season between FReepathons!

Very nice post, Norm. We need glock to frame and save it.

LOL! I'm really punchy this morning. I just got this warning:

"Before you may post this message, the following must be corrected:

Could not find anybody named 'gglock rocks'"

And, then I got it a second time.

Only three months to recuperate until the NEXT Freepathon.

Yes. Go out the back door and across the deck to your left. You'll probably see Brad's Gramma out there pulling the lawn furniture out of Jim's pool.

My computer crashed last month and I've been hesitant to post anything in the event IT decides to freak out again. But just couldn't let a Freepathon pass by without a donation and bump.

I posted this last night late. Maybe some people missed it so I'll post it again.

Okay! My Challenge for the Day!

A little game of "Name That Tune"!
(Click the Music Note and listen to it.)

Here are the rules:
You must give me the original name of the tune Spelled Correctly.

If anyone names it correctly, I will pony up 20 bucks for good 'ol FR.
If whoever guesses it correctly and can also give me the name of the tune in English, I will add another 10 bucks.
Making it 30 bucks in all.
Good Luck!

I have tried not to make it too difficult yet not easy either J
