at $0.60 a minute, one would think that some of the user requested upgrades and improvements could be added... like exempting monthly donors from the freepathons... you know... simple things...

I just wish that everyone would cease and desist posting poll results and chatroom crap to breaking news, effectively pushing Jim’s Freepathon thread messages to the bottom before they’re cold.......

Call me surly......

Hey, Surly, where's Moe?





High Flight

 
  Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;


Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence.
Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue,
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.


Pilot Officer Gillespie Magee
No 412 squadron, RCAF
Killed 11 December 1941

A long time ago that was used as a sign-off on a local TV-station here in Phoenix.

Sarah looks beautiful from any angle!

Does it seem to you that the Amazing Piper looks especially proud of Mom in this photo?

It’s been confiscated.

The whole poem was used every night? Did you memorize it?

I didn’t memorize the test pattern but I enjoyed it.
