A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day 07-25-02

A Few of FR's Finest.....
......Every Day

FR is a Treasure Trove of talented, compassionate, patriotic, wonderful people who gather every day to discuss the latest news and issues;  salute
and support our military and our leaders;  tell a few jokes;  learn a new
word;  write poetry;  pray for those in need;  and congratulate those who
are deserving. Thank you, Jim Robinson, for giving us the vehicle in which
we can express ourselves.

Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.  I
can remember lurking when there were only a few regulars who posted, and now there are over 60,000 who have registered for posting privileges. The forum is read daily by tens of thousands
of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.





A Few of FR's Finest November 11, 2001

So many people have written me since my original Veteran's Day Tribute, asking how they, or a loved one, could be included in that tribute. Since I can no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I've been including them in additional posts as I received enough to make another collage.

Still that doesn't seem to be enough. I think there's never been a better nor more appropriate time to keep the faces of our own Veterans and Active Military in front of FReepers--every day! That's why I wanted to do yet another Daily Thread .....ABOUT FReepers .....and FOR FReepers. But not only about our Military FReepers; for all FReepers! Wouldn't it be nice to get to know a few of the other FReepers as well? That's why, in addition to seeing FR's Finest Military Personnel every day, I thought it might be fun to feature a different FReeper (or FReepers) each day. If you would like to be pictured, or know someone who would, please FReepmail me and we'll turn the spotlight - on YOU - for the day!

And do let me know if you'd like your picture added to the groups of Veterans/Active Military below. I will keep this page updated, and continue to add them to the comment section of the original Veteran's Day thread as well.

The
Accidental
Tourist

He's Everywhere!   He's Everywhere!



Lowbridge

FReeper since 02-12-99

It's all Lowbridge's fault!  All of a sudden, after 911, when that photo of him standing at the top of the Trade Center first appeared, we were seeing the Tourist Guy everywhere!  Lowbridge, who is one of FR's most creative photo manipulators, began to insert Tourist Guy's photo in the most outlandish places.  Soon he created a whole web site with this accidental tourist appearing in places one could only dream about!
One look at Lowbridge' Profile Page and I knew there was no way I could summarize in just two or three paragraphs his commitment to FReeRepublic, FReeRepublic-related activities and organizations, and FREEPERS in general!  This New Yorker is almost like the Tourist Guy;  he's everywhere, he's everywhere!  I urge all of you to take a look at his profile page, check out some of his links, and also see some of the ways he's taken FReeper's heads and morphed them into movie posters and promos. Two of my personal favorites are pictured here.   Click on the thumbnails to see them full-size.
A few things about our FReeper of the Day that I'd like to point out:

Lowbridge is a big supporter and promoter of AnnaZ and Mercuria's FR radio program  UNSPUN the website He organized and hosted the FReeper Bus Trip to Albany.  He has created a parody of Democratic Underground.  He is a chapter leader of the FRee Republic Second Amendment Task Force.  Many of you met Lowbridge in Washington D.C. for the FReeper Inaugural Ball;   he attended The anti-United Nations Rally last July, and in August, he got to spend some quality time with some of his favorite people in California. I would be remiss if I didn't include a link to that thread, where such good memories were made:   California Memories

Thank you, Lowbridge!
You ARE one of FR's Finest!

LOL! I KNOW, I KNOW! I'm not supposed to be here yet! I think I'm awake, but ........ then this could be somebody else who took over my pc. :)

Hey! Didn't see you yesterday! What I DID see when I checked Self-Search this morning was your ping to the Men Die Young thread! LOL It's okay - actually, it's a GOOD thing that men like to be men and women like to be women.

Morning, Joe - I still use that Pledge (even with John Wayne's rendition as you did it for us here once) along with a few others. Just have a file saved with different pledge graphics to use, and this one's there.

'nad, you have to shape up now - we're not alone anymore. :)

I think I see the problem. You have the extension as "jpg", when it's a GIF (in capital letters).

He is a chapter leader of the FRee Republic Second Amendment Task Force.

And creator of the chapter graphic:

Many of you met Lowbridge in Washington D.C. for the FReeper Inaugural Ball;

Good Morning all!

I wrote to Jim Robinson this morning via FREEPMAIL to change my screen name from Clara Suzanne, although I liked that name. But everyoune liked the Pippi Picture and it's sooo me!

i thought I'd change it to Pippin! I have to wait for Jim though.

Lowbridge:Congratulations to the "father" of tourist guy! Today is YOUR day, HIP! HIP! HOORAH!

The problem with megaone.com, is that I can't post my pics anywhere else unless I have them in GIF format (and the GIF extension in capital letters). I dont know why that is. Must be an oversight on their part. I can show "jpg" pics, but on my megaone site only. If I want to post my pics elsewhere, I have to change them to GIF. As a result, sort of an experiment, I had the freep brothers pic made in both jpg and GIF.

Hey Lowie!!! You're one of my most favorite Freepers! Hey everyone, let me tell you about Lowbridge. He is the most wonderful and nicest guys in all of Freeperland. He is always there to lend a helping hand in any project you ask him to help. He's kind, and funny. he's a real gentleman.
I got the chance to meet Lowbridge at the Freeper Ball in Washington DC. I was so glad I did. He's a real sweety, and I have nothing but kind thoughts and good things to say about Lowbridge. He is my friend.
