Figured I better get signed up and say hi finally. I'm a Western PA native, and father/husband (DW30,DS7). Have read you criteria a few times whenever I need a chuckle, and I'll just go with I qualify for #77

Well, happy times to those who are in the World now, and best wishes to those looking forward to future visits.
Welcome to the group. Norm will be by later to collect the bacon and Dole whips. Someone else will get you your member number shortly. Enjoy the fun around here.

Both of which are my favorite activities on flights.


Drinking and snoozing are usually related too.

And I thought I was behind when I saw the other thread. Well, I guess this just means I've got 2 threads to not catch up on.

1. Love God
2. Love Others
3. Do your best.

This third value has us echo'ing a shortened version of Bill and Ted's Slogan to each other a lot. "Be Excellent".

I've been thinking about this a lot and I'm curious if you guys had to boil it down to 3 things what values would you want your kids to pick up?

Rule 1: You are not better then any one else.
Rule 2: No one else is better then you.
Rule 3: When in doubt, refer to Rule 1


Really, it’s just the Golden Rule broken down into is simplest elements.

Good book. Probably why I want to live in the wilderness but have no skills to accomplish it. Meg Meeker wrote a good book about dads and daughters.

Welcome. Dues are payable in bacon, dole whips, beer, or cake.

One of my personal regrets is not reading the Bible enough and as such, not having my children read it. I tend to teach them most about being true to themselves - with friends, marriage, future work. And, I try to teach them about money management.
