Being that our thread for white castles got locked up, I figured I'd start the nonsense thread. This way, we can chat about things that are "off-topic" while not hijacking another thread about bus loops, golf carts, trading posts etc........ Let's see if we can get this baby up to 5000 posts.

I was worried...I figured there was some kind of Disboard hell that you go to if you post in a Chit/Chat thread that wasn't started by Pete!

I've already been to JFK airport today,:furious: and cursed more than I have in a year......if I were to post in the other thread..I'd be burning for sure!

You are suffering from A.D.T.B (After Disney Trip Blues) There is no cure but there is a short term fix W.D.W. But this only helps leading up to and during the usage of W.D.W. Once you have used up your W.D.W you will go into withdraws and then be back to A.D.T.B. I wish I could cure you but then you would not be here on the Dis.

As a matter of fact, if it wasn't for you guys, I really would be homicidal, I swear. It is just a really bad combo of frustration, pain, remorse, annoyance, guilt, fear and loathing. LOL

Nothing's over until we decide it is!

Was it over when the Germans
bombed Pearl Harbor?

Hell, no!
And it ain't over now.

'Cause when the going gets tough...

the tough get going! Who's with me?

Let's go! Come on!

What the flop happened
to the Disboards l used to know?

Where's the spirit?

Where's the guts?

This could be the greatest board

but you're gonna let it be the worst.

You know, I don't think I had the 6.0 with this one. I did pull the coachman with the 6.0, but it was chipped etc. and it would smoke the tires if I pulled out too hard. :thumbsup2

The TT weighs 8500 dry, so I figure with all of our crap, it has to be around 12k loaded.

The 6.4 pulls fine, just loves pulling into fuel stations more. On a side note, I think the dpf is getting plugged, it is doing its burn about 3 times a week now. I HATE THAT DAMNED TRUCK!

Ours weighs 7900 dry 11900 loaded. My motor is stock The ford dealership told me if I liked my motor in one piece leave it stock. But I might buy a programer. Or a dodge. We might go camping this weekend so that will be the real test for it.

I think programmers are fine, just don't go nuts, and put it on crush and expect everything to be fine.

The guy I buy my performance stuff from, has an 06, and he has done a bunch of stuff to it, like programmer, h2o meth, intake, nitrous, exhaust etc, and it is S C A R E Y fast! It will smoke all 4 tires in 4wd, and boosts to about 40 lbs.

He hasn't broke too many parts lol.

I think the 3 things to do are cold air kit, exhaust, and small programmer.

I wish I could do it to this one, but most of this stuff is not available... or is huge money. And mine is a lease so not worth doing alot to it.

06-03-2008, 10:49 PM
Edge is coming out with a fuel economy box you plug in under the hood that will also give a extra 35 hp for the 6.0. I used to run a superchip programer on tow mode in my 7.3 which was only an extra 65 hp but that was all I needed.

iGoogle Translator is a very impressive tool!!! I don't speak a word of French (except to ask "where is the bathroom", days of the week, and months in the year).

The Pastor I work for tried to "stump the secretary" by asking me to translate some english into greek for a Bible study he was leading for other Pastor's in the area. iGoogle Translator to the rescue!!

Now, he thinks I'm the second person in history that can walk on water!! :rotfl2:

He's a computer illiterate kinda guy, and to this day has no idea how I did it!! Not to mention that the other area Pastors want to know how he ended up with a secretary that could actually get Greek letters typed into a document!! Some secrets will go to the grave with me!!;)

Two years ago while at the first annual NFFC Convention at WDW to celebrate WDW's "birthdate" I met several Disney great including the lady who was the DLP dragon sculptor, the animator for Ariel and of course Tinkerbell (Margaret Kerry) if you ever want to do something different while on a trip to the world I'd highly suggest this event!!! It's held by NFFC (National Fantasty
Fan Club) They host many "celebrities" each year who speak and you also have dinner so you can converse with them for a bit. Also held is a sales event for collectors or wannabes like me lol! Backstage tours this year!!!!

So will there be a full trip report coming?? Would love to hear more about how the family liked the tent camping and how was Universal/IOA??

No full trip report...Im not much of a writer. But Im happy to report that the family enjoyed the "first tenting experience" much MUCH more than I could have hoped for. Only a single complaint from the DW, and that was that she wasnt crazy about having to cart to the comfort station in the middle of the night....and yes, mother nature calls her EVERY night at right around 3:30. But shes a trooper and it wasnt a big issue, she DID say it would be alot easier if we had a camper with a flusher, which I subtly lead her into saying she wanted to get a camper of our own!!!! I thought thatnwas a great idea that she came up with all by herself (after about 8 months of me laying down little hints, like"Why wont you let me buy a freakin camper????"). So, yes...the family had a GREAT time and enjoyed every moment.

UO and IA were ok...we only went twice(out of the 7 we were allowed to go) but no one would go on any of the good rides with me, so 2 days was really more than enough to do everything THEY were willing to do. It had been about 12 years since we had been....I think thats just about enough time in between visits....its sure no DisneyWorld! It really lacks atmosphere, IMHO.

I know exactly how she feels!! I know you want a camper, but a portable toilet in a toilet tent set up at the site solves that problem.

Me, being the youngest, had the job of dumping and cleaning this bucket daily. Yuck --- I was mentally scarred for life!!!

:rotfl: I took a few semesters of Hellinistic Greek in College when I felt the need for a break from French. After that....I happily went back to Parle Vous Francais!!! That translator sounds cool! I need to try it in Arabic....that language is so beautiful!

Two years ago while at the first annual NFFC Convention at WDW to celebrate WDW's "birthdate" I met several Disney great including the lady who was the DLP dragon sculptor, the animator for Ariel and of course Tinkerbell (Margaret Kerry) if you ever want to do something different while on a trip to the world I'd highly suggest this event!!! It's held by NFFC (National Fantasty
Fan Club) They host many "celebrities" each year who speak and you also have dinner so you can converse with them for a bit. Also held is a sales event for collectors or wannabes like me lol! Backstage tours this year!!!!

That sounds wonderful!!!!!!

Keep your fingers crossed: Yesterday I got a call from Unisys recruiter and now I have a phone interview scheduled for this afternoon. If that goes well they will schedule a face-to-face. :thumbsup2

:woohoo: Good luck!!!!!!!

Any new news from Jim and Nicole?

She said she would get on last night. I hope everything is ok!!!

No full trip report...Im not much of a writer. But Im happy to report that the family enjoyed the "first tenting experience" much MUCH more than I could have hoped for. Only a single complaint from the DW, and that was that she wasnt crazy about having to cart to the comfort station in the middle of the night....and yes, mother nature calls her EVERY night at right around 3:30. But shes a trooper and it wasnt a big issue, she DID say it would be alot easier if we had a camper with a flusher, which I subtly lead her into saying she wanted to get a camper of our own!!!! I thought thatnwas a great idea that she came up with all by herself (after about 8 months of me laying down little hints, like"Why wont you let me buy a freakin camper????"). So, yes...the family had a GREAT time and enjoyed every moment.


Yey! Gina's been bitten by the bug!

One day while eating lunch at McDonald's, I noticed an elderly couple sitting in the booth next to me. On the table was one hamburger, one small french fry, and one small soft drink.

The elderly gentleman unwrapped the burger, took a plastic knife and cut it in half; and carefully divided the fries into two piles, and started eating half of the meal while his wife patiently watched and waited. As I was watching this scenario I thought, "This poor couple. They can only afford one meager meal to split between the two of them." But I also wondered why the elderly lady was just sitting and watching. Finally, I could stand it no more. I stood up and approached the couple and asked if they would like some money to purchase a second meal. The gentleman looked up at me with eyes dulled by age, thanked me, said they were fine, and went back to eating. I sat down, saddened that their pride would not allow me to perform this simple act of kindness.

A few minutes passed as I watched the old man enjoy his meal while the wife looked on. Again, remorse grabbed me by my heartstrings and I approached them and asked if they would like another hamburger.

"Sonny," replied the old man, "this is quite enough for the two of us; but I thank you for your kindness."

I thought to myself, okay, maybe they're not big eaters... but it was bugging me why the old lady just sat there watching her husband eat while her half was getting cold. So, without the ability to stop myself I asked the lady, "Why aren't you eating your half?" She promptly replied, "I'm waiting for Herb to finish so he can give me the teeth."

The canal behind the group camp area is where I want to spend eternity (if you know what I mean ;) ). I love to go there early in the morning with a cuppa joe & just sit and contemplate. I liked it a whole lot better before they cleared it out, however.

To address the # of gators at FtW, there probably aren't more than normal... it's just towards the end of mating season & they are more active & mobile than usual.

John Tortarella was fired by the Tampa Bay Lighting Tuesday - and he took them to on to win the Stanley Cup in 2004. He also had one year remaining on his contract.

Now "Tort" is looking for a head coaching job with Toronto & the Lighting is in the final negotiations for their new owner, Oren Koules. Koules' original financial backer was involved with a $7B scandal IIRC in February and he's now working out a deal with the current TBL owners for finacing until he can find a permanent lender.

I like it when HGTV does the annual RV show! They really do a good job of hitting all RV's from little $$ to mega $$!!

I'm afraid I would feel just a teeny bit claustrophobic in a Tab. :scared:

I just wanted to brag a little. Today was Matt's last day of kindergarten, and he got his report card. He is reading at an "emergent 2nd grade" level. He is so smart, it must come from me, not his mom. :lmao:

Brilliant like his daddy!

Just looked at the cakes. Now I want cake and I want to go to Disney. Wait I want cake in Disney.

I stand corrected, Carol!! It is the teardrops that would give me the shivers!! How could I ever group the Mickey-T@b into the same class as a teardrop. Please forgive my stupidity!!

Not really a big deal to me, but some of those classic teardrop owners do get bent out of shape when anything but a 4x8 or 5x10 teardrop with a kitchen in the back is called a teardrop.

Yea, that RV Crazy show came out last year, it's a fun show, it was on earlier during the night as well last night (I saw that it was on around 7 or 8 too, at least on our lineup). I think I've seen it 3 times now, although I still like the annual RV show they do much better.


Congratulations to the Detroit Redwings! That was a great series! Shannone I took you off iggy, you can come back now.

There is 10 minutes left in the game, but the writing is on the walls. The pens had an amazing season, it was a real pleasure watching them this year, I am already looking forward to next season!

Well, Pittsburgh almost tied it up with a 1/2 a second left, that was similar to the Superbowl a few years ago, when Tennesee ALMOST made it to the TD but stopped just short. Last night, that puck went all the way across the line just inches from it but never went in, turned out to be a great last few minutes of the game.

This is why I coach:

Yesterday, when I got to school, there was an orchid in a pot (I am going to try my best not to kill it;) ) and a card on my desk in my office. It was from one of my softball players, who I was told couldn't keep her composure so she brought it while I was on morning duty...

The card reads: "It takes a special kind of person to care enough to take the time for others, to do whatever it takes to help somebody out. For everything you have done...for everything you have given...thank you very much."

What she wrote made me cry yesterday and still brings tears to my eyes as I type:

"Dear Coach Majors, You have done so much for me. I do not even know how to thank you. I thank you for always supporting me and for being a shoulder to cry on when I needed one most. You have taught me more than softball. You have taught me character and to always go for my dreams. Your determination and dedication to our team as allowed me to mature into a young woman. Thank you for everything that you have done. Love, Jordan."

You see....all those people who run the school are not nearly close enough to the situation to have any authority over the decisions they made about you. There is so much more to that job than explaining how a game is played. Its apparent that the principle made the dumbest choice possible and may have just lost a very good thing.

Yeah, after I had cancer, docs will remove every freckle if it looks the least bit funny. Luckily most come back normal. I've had a few with these pre-melanoma cells. The latest on my hip. July 24 is the date. Thank you! Prayers are the best medicine!

DH has that kind of stuff all the time. He recently had a big chunk taken off his nose. They really did a great job. They pulled some out of his cheek, folded it over and put it on his nose. The cheek looks great!! The nose looks OK. They will probably go back and tweek the nose.

It sounds similar to Alabama's exit exam.

Both of my boys passed all of them the first time in their sophomore year.

These are taken at various grade levels throughout high school. There used to be a standard diploma at one time with a Regents diploma being one you received if you met a higher standard. Now they have changed the Regents requirements somewhat, and all are expected to achieve regents level diplomas. It isn't a state test given in a particular year. They are different tests given in different subjects based on the sequences required for graduation. Biology,Earth Science, Chemistry.. Global Studies, English. Math A..or AX. (remember algebra, geometry, and trig...well no more.) and so on and so on. You can still move on to the next grade, even if you fail the regents. You might well have actually passed the course, but if you fail the regents, you will not be able to graduate unless you pass it at some point.
Sounds good in theory....and he's my third going through this..and he won't have any issues. Only it does leave a good many kids by the way side..and you don't hear about them, because they just drop out by the time they legally can at 16. So while it sounds rosie...raising the bar, and having everyone meet a higher standard, there are those you don't hear about because they wind up leaving. Also..as mentioned this so called "Regents Diploma" doesn't get you anything extra that any other academic diploma from another state wouldn't get you.

clkelley
06-05-2008, 11:16 AM
because they just drop out by the time they legally can at 16.

In Alabama, you too frequently DO hear about kids not graduating due to not passing the exit exam. The reason you hear so much about it is because, from 16-18 in order to have a driver's license, you must be registered in school. So instead of dropping out at 16, these kids are just floating through school to keep their license. Now granted once they get their license, they actually have to be pulled over for it to be checked, so there still may be dropouts after they actually get their license, but it really is sad to hear about so many unmotivated kids that can't pass these simple exams.

Recap....

Jen gets the "Coach of the Year" award from me!! (Who cares what your administration thinks - we all know administrators can't think - and that's why they're administrators - they can do the least amount of damage in that position)

Jim is trying to barter with his Ortho Dr to let him wear a splint to heal his hand instead of undergoing surgery or worse yet, wear a hard cast. Dude... do you ever want complete use of this hand again??? Think about it!;)

Chris posted pictures of WDW from Google-Earth that look like crappy artists renderings (sorry Chris - I'm not slaming you - but that's what they look like to me).

Due to popular demand they are re-running "Rog's Nite at the Rumplemintz" at FtW.

School's out - or almost out - in most places.

Ami's having a spot on her hip removed in July just as a precaution. (Can I have the name of that surgeon so I can have my @zz removed?)

I can attest first hand that Al IS a slob (he's not cold-hearted, but does like cold beer).

I've missed you all :wave2: I haven't had much time for being online this last week. We moved into the new house on Tuesday. WHAT A DAY :faint: It took about 12 hours from start to finish for the movers. We were supposed to get 6 guys and 3 trucks, but one broke down somewhere and they had to send another one which took 4 hours. Rather than make two trips, they decided to wait for the other guys so they could have more help loading and unloading. We were on a flat rate so I didn't care except that it was RAINING. Plus Chad had to work the next morning and the kids all had school. It was a late night for all of us. The three nights before the move, Chad and I were up until almost 2:00am each night finishing up the packing (that's what we get for camping three weekends in a row instead of packing :rolleyes1 )

It's surprising how at home I already feel here. I have about 1/3 of the rooms unpacked and by the end of tonight will knock off a few more. By Sunday night I am hoping to be done. I HAVE to be because my oldest daughter and I are headed to Washington D.C for her 8th grade class trip. We have to be at the school at 4:15am on Monday morning :headache:

The kids are out of school on Friday....thank goodness !! We've been so busy with the move that we haven't had much time for paying attention to what's going on with their classes. I still have to get an end of the year present for some of the teachers.

We don't have the tv's hooked up yet....but we listened to the Red Wings games. We were packing up kitchen at the old place on Monday night when the Wings ALMOST won the cup. What an ending.....unbelievable. I wish I could have SEEN the game. Last night we were here unpacking the new kitchen when they did win the cup. I wish they could've won at home...it sounded so quiet. There is a parade in Detroit for them tomorrow morning but we aren't going to be able to make it. I went to one of them once and it was a lot of fun. It's cool to see the city come together for something GOOD for a change !! :)

I hope I haven't missed anything big in the last week or so. I just read Deb's updates (THANKS so much for those :thumbsup2 ).

Ami- I saw some of your vacation pictures and it looks like you had a great time. Keep us posted about your test results.

Jen- The plant/note from your student was so sweet...hang onto that note !!

Actually, considering the platform, the level of detail on Google Earth is amazing. You can even see the face painting selections at the stand in Animal Kingdom. Most of it isn't that detailed, but so far everyone is really impressed with the quality of the product.

To be able to see all of Disney in 3d, that's great for informational purposes.

Then again, maybe I shouldn't be talking about Disney in the off-topic thread...lol

Chris... the technology is amazing.

I'm not too sure how up to date the data is. I just looked at my neighborhood, and it shows data from about 3 years ago. Our neighborhood has practically doubled in size since the satellite image portrayed on Google Earth.

You know, when I was in Germany (3ACR) we game back to CONUS on the first Reforger and left all our equipment in depots over there. There was one M-60 in our motor pool that no one claimed so we stripped it for parts. When we left the kaserne there was an empty hull left. Never did find out if it was on some one's property book. That was an interesting move. :rotfl2:

There's a thread on the Community Board entitled:

"How do you keep rodents out of your pool?"

Now, me being me, thought they had started up the old FtW scum think they can just go to WL and swim with us "privileged" people, crap. But this person was serious!!

She's going on & on about finding dead squirrels in her pool & while DH was cleaning the pool..... PLOP!!! In falls a chipmunk!!! Why if it weren't for her DH being there at just the right moment, that poor little chipmunk would have drown!!:(

Someone actually came back and posted that OP should provide little safety ladders so the squirrels and chipmunks could get out of the pool!!!

That's the kind of stuff that makes PBO's lose their hair - hence my baldness. As a young PBO, I signed out a water buffalo to a unit. When it came back, I went out to inspect it and some moron had used it to haul gasoline. Some poor officer bought a water buffalo that day.

Yeah, I never could figure that one out. We were really nervous when we were taking the power pack out of it -- we were sure someone would object -- but no. After that no one even tried to hide the fact that they were stripping it. Even the squadron commander knew what we were doing and obviously didn't care -- the CSM thought it was hilarious. Wanted daily reports on what was taken off it. I don't think that would go over now though.

That would be Al. He got "tanked" several times while in Germany and was blamed for the loss of a few tanks!! :duck:

I just got some kinda sucky news. No biggie, but I had a spot on my hip come back with pre-cancer cells. I know the drill. Just have to have a little minor surgery in July to remove the whole area and beyond to make sure it doesn't turn into cancer. The good thing is I get thoroughly checked out by the doc so often that these things get caught early enough to do something about it. Just thought I'd share.

Good vibes to you Ami, hope all is well. Are they doing this after you come back from FW or before?

That's the thing. I sit under umbrellas, wear hats and 70 spf. I've never set foot in a tanning bed. Being a pasty white redhead sure is great, huh?:laughing:

My mom is the same way, never goes out in the sun, always is very white, but she has to go and get them taken off as well. The last time, it was at her neck line where the shirt sits. We are praying for ya!

Really???? Wow! I graduated in 1986. I guess that is good though. Kinda like Florida with the FCAT's, if you don't meet your grade level, you don't get promoted to the next grade.

actually that is only for 3rd grade

Try this song everyone.

Plowing these fields in the hot summer sun
Over by the gate lordy here she comes
With a basket full of chicken and a big cold jug of sweet tea
I make a little room and she climbs on up
Open up a throttle and stir a little dust
Just look at her face she ain't a foolin me

I was born in the backwoods
Of a two-bit nowhere town
Fathered up some rock 'n' roll (baby)
So you muthers could boogie down
I ain't whistling dixie
No I'm a rebel with a groove
All around the world the ygo 'round and 'round
When they dig on my new stainless steel sound

actually it only counts in 3rd grade and 10th for graduation...the rest of the grades count towards what you have to do with them the next year...if a teacher can prove with a portfolio of work that shows he made the benchmarks (skills) for that year, the 3rd grade can be waived...

for 10th graders, they get 5 chances to pass, if they don't they get a certificate of completion, not a diploma...if they can't pass the FCAT, they can take the ACT and have to score at least a 14 to get the diploma

FW is such an escape from reality for me and my family...looping, kungaloosh, campfires, fishing, swimming, kids playing...it doesn't get much better than that. :goodvibes Ok, maybe I *am* ready to go back....::yes::

When is the next trip Rog...or are you guys going to get a camper first?

Nicole...Im just catching up on things....I hate that this has happened to your DH.....he seems like such a nice dude from what you write that he yells out from behind you while youre online. I hope things turn out ok.


Yeah, he's alright-I guess I'll keep him around.;) He is doing better today. He's on the schedule for next Thursday to get the kidney out. So it is just a wait until then. We were hoping that they would let us go home in between, but it doesn't look good. He was bummed. But that's ok, he's heckiling the nurses now so it seems he is getting back to normal.:confused3 His sense of humor was pretty much gone for a while there so it is nice to see him joking around. Well, off to get caught up on the other threads.:moped:

Hey everyone, I need some help. I need a very small clipart of something campy, like a trailer, tent, motorhome, something that I can use a a marker for my review pages to show where campgrounds are. Right now I am using a "thumbtack" looking thing, BORING! I want something that represents us. Let me know.
