The words above are taken from a surfing article, but I'd just like to add that to live a life where you still are doing what you love up until the end - that is a good life. Rest in peace. :heart:
A good life indeed. RIP, Derek.

Re: Happy Father's Day!

I'm a little late on this and seldom here. My dad grew up in the mountains of rural Virginia, in a poor family. His dad went to prison for a year or two for being a shine runner, meaning he drove the delivery car like ol' Jessie Duke. My dad and siblings and Grandma lived off their meager farm and r...

Re: Character Strengths

So, I took this survey last week: https://www.viacharacter.org It told me, among other things, that I scored very low on bravery. I thought about it, and figured I should pay attention to moments where I want to say something, but wimp out. ---- This week, I had a new personal training client, who,...

Re: Q Anon is a New American Religion

I thought the Q had gone away last year, or thereabouts. We have a crazy guy on another forum I'm on, that's always dropping ambiguous Q-isms about the impending destruction of whomever he thinks is destroying the country. Always has some nebulous date(s) when the next shoe will drop, it hasn't ever...

Driving at real speed on country roads is great.
I used to drive fast on the back road home after work cranking The Who. It did boil off some steam.
Steppenwolf almost ran me off the back country roads when I was 18.

I come here to get all my serious economic questions answered. Hi Tim, Let me take a shot at this. Okay, "here's the deal". The stock market is a leading indicator of the economy.

Re: Apocalypto is on the streaming services!

It's an awesome movie. It's been impossible to find on DVD for a while. I have not seen this movie but if this part of history interests you, the History On Fire podcast with Daniele Bolelli titled The Conquest Of Mexico (episodes 20-23 from 2017) is amazing. What happened when Cortez got to Mexico...

Re: It's a Wonderful Life

This movie sucked. It's only considered a classic since no one bothered to renew the copyright, thus making it super cheap for tv stations to air endlessly. Plus it's insidious leftist propaganda. George never got to do what he really wanted but that's okay, the town (collective, party, state) was ...

Re: Might have broken my hand...

Thanks! As far as I know, there shouldn't be any issues. I can't use my hand at all until next Wednesday when she takes the bandages off. After that, if all looks well I'll start PT to begin getting ROM and strength back. AEM, since this is your "first" surgery, don't rush things. My old mentality ...
