    I have a friend I used to play hockey with who lives in Zagreb. He is a doctor. I could get you in touch with him if you would plan to visit that city. (You probably will, you will probably fly into Zagreb.) I was very briefly in Croatia during my last deployment to Bosnia. We escorted a...

    Car folks... buying a new car!

    I had a Pontiac Vibe (re-badged matrix) for 150,00+ miles with exactly zero non-routine maintenance. MANY long trips back and forth to see Tanya in Canada while we were dating and/or apart. Lots of room, decent mileage and does well in weather. I recently had a look at what Toyota is...

    FYI, the last I recall Thailand was running under martial law due to a military coup. Make sure they have a somewhat reasonable government before committing any money to a trip.

    The Venting Thread

    Maybe its not a medical condition, but rather one of the heart? Please, please please do not misunderstand me Nolu. But from the little I know about you from what you share here..... I cannot help but wonder. Perhaps you will not care, but we will be praying for you.

    Matthew 19:14 "but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.†As much as Tanya and I strive to raise this kid and show her the way to go, she always teaches us something too. I hope I never cease to be humbled by her.

    April Fools

    A buddy of mine I work with.... His girlfriend called and told him she was pregnant. He apparently bought it because he all of a sudden got up real fast (we work in a "scrum room", which is pretty open) and went to a conference room across the hall. Few seconds later we hear him laughing...

    prayers, thoughts, whatever for Brian tomorrow

    I was told "no running and no contact sports, ever again." I never liked high impact cardio in the first place, so no worries there. As long as I can still hike and do all the things required to hunt/fish etc I am ok. No more hockey is a bummer, but I can get over that too. If I get past...

    prayers, thoughts, whatever for Brian tomorrow

    What do I have to complain about? You are waiting on me (and Hannah and the dogs....) hand and foot. Its almost awkward. :) Almost. I could get used to it. Lol

    prayers, thoughts, whatever for Brian tomorrow

    Totally agree with "productive pain". This is the part of the process I have a say in. So bring it on mean PT people. Lol

    prayers, thoughts, whatever for Brian tomorrow

    After the catheter removal, just about anything will be gentle. Lol. I can handle the dull ache I have after PT. But the knife stabs in my "parts" I could do without. :) Thanks again all!

    prayers, thoughts, whatever for Brian tomorrow

    Thanks all for the prayers and thoughts. I am doing quite well. Had the urinary catheter removed this morning. That was the most uncomfortable thing so far. Lol

    Disney Questions!

    We would be more than happy to plan a trip with you. :) You know we would make it proper. LOL We... know things... that most people don't. ;) Especially if you would enjoy meeting and greeting with all the characters. With a big assist from Hannah, we know the tricks to get extra...

    I hate to say this.... But this sounds like a cracked engine block. Just had a similar situation with our van. Would love to read on and be wrong. Best of luck.

    The Fall Semester Thread.

    Me? I joined the Army out of high school. Served 4 years and went to college for free (made money actually) because of it. (GI Bill + Army College Fund.) Got a degree I do not use. (History) Got a degree on my dime (A.A.S in Computer Stuff) that I sorta of use. I now work in IT (going...

    Duck Dynasty

    This is a good summary of why this show is so successful.

    Duck Dynasty

    Love it. :) Ya gotta have a little redneck in you somewhere to appreciate it. The best part to me is they simply live who they are. Nothing in your face or full of pride.... But for me, the best parts are Phil's prayers at the end of most episodes. He is just so casual with God, the...

    Random Baby Urges?

    Believe it or not, Hannah is not a "perfect all the time child." (I am her dad, in case you did not know.) She has her moments like all children do. We simply do not let those moments define what being a parent is. (Or air all the dirty laundry like many do.) I will admit that as she gets...

    George Zimmerman Found Not Guilty

    My $.02 - The 'stand your ground law' was not relevant to this case. The 'regular' self defence law was applied. Many people here (and the NAACP) seem to not know that. - IMO, Zimmerman placed himself in the situation that caused this to occur. That does not make him guilty of murder...

    Civil Debates

    Oh, I am not trying to say you (generic you) do not have any happiness, love, etc because of not having faith in God. The only reason I jumped into this was because of the insinuation that the only way people believe in God is if they are 'brainwashed' at a young age. Also, for the...

    Civil Debates

    I too am WAY past debating faith on this forum. ;) Ill just say that all of the absolute statements made about it all being a "bit of posh" require a great deal of faith to make. Making an absolute statement about something we will never be able to "prove". There is a great deal of...
