Admiral Benbow Inn

Well, I couldn’t think of another name on the fly, so if you have thoughts on a better name for this “room”, feel free. As if I would have a hope in hell of stopping you from speaking your minds.

This is our room to hang out in, I will prune out the old comment threads as they die off so do not be alarmed. It is just to make more room to play in.

If you do not remember the Admiral Benbow Inn, try re-reading Treasure Island.

  1. Amazing how something furry with 4 legs can completely capture your heart.

    I have often wondered if, upon my death, I will be greeted by my furry companions that have preceded me.

    I have great respect for anyone who can make the decision that their pet's quality of life is more important than their own need to keep them around.

    I am sure there will be a huge hole in your life that will never be completely filled by another furry friend, but each has their own place in your heart.

    You were lucky to have been blessed by the unconditional love of your best friend.

  2. I too use Firefox and run Linux most of the time because I too hate windows. My husband will not let me partition his drive and have it on his system so I boot from a CD and get online when I want it to be fast. I put Linux on my other system but haven't been able to get my wireless USB to work on it. Its been a learning experience for me in trouble shooting it and there are times when I just want to pitch the damn thing out the window.

    1. How in the world did your remember? Thanks, it was an awesome day. Kevin took me for a drive out Beavercreek road, and reland road, and all over the backcountry.

      And to top it all off we finally found a wedding ring I liked, we bought it on the spot, so now I guess we get to go through with this marriage thing after all.

      I wanted something that would sit flush, something channel set, and no diamonds for me to lose. I wanted CZ or Topaz. It needed to be one I could wear around tools, but still look like a ladies ring. Gee I don’t ask for much do I?

      My Brother sent me 20 pairs of sox, and an X-Box 360.

        1. I accept your family’s doggy and kitty slobbers and kisses, and return it with my family’s slobbers and kisses.
          From Karma, Zeus, Rachel, and Missy. Oh Yeah, Kevin and I as well.
          We may need a towel after this.

            1. Hey, Griz. For some reason I am not recieving replys via email from replys made to me on POP. I am geting them fine from KATU, just not POP.

              I did look in the helps and checked my email in my profile it all looks good.

              I am starting to think I am totaly clueless.

              Um,,, you dont have to agrea with me on the clueless bit,… please be kind.

              I am getting old and senile…

              1. Dang! Well, it was a thought! *kicks intense debates*

                My yahoo addy does not like intense debates there for awhile. It suddenly decided the replies where spam! Hadtofix that so it lets them through again!

                1. Is dragon drool really flammable or is that just a myth? If flammable do I need an ABC fire extinguisher or does it need to be Halon? Is it a type D fire?

                  Who is in charge of the M.S.D.S sheets for this ship? Where is the sheet for Dibromotetrafluoroethane?

                  Do we have a safety committee?

                  1. ROFLMAO! Too funny!

                    Is dragon drool really flammable or is that just a myth?
                    That's Earth Dragons.. Pern Dragons chew firestone, and only the Bronzes,Browns,Blues & Greens do that. The Golds are Queens, or more specifically, their Riders, carry flame throwers. They fight Thread. Tamianth is a Queen Dragon BTW..

                    Pern dragons would never harm a human.. tempting as it may be!

                    1. Thank you for not taking the question the wrong way, a good concierge must ask these questions in order to insure all accommodations possible are considered.
                      Discretion is also a must, like this morning at work, do I say something to the politicians with the blue elephants on his tie who is one his way to a highly political meeting or just look away.
                      I guess missed working in the security position more than I thought I did over the last two years. I had forgotten about the ties, and the jewelry.
                      But if I can deal with politicians I should be able to handle dragons and such.

  3. Its been real quiet lately… everyone getting busy with the holidays right around the corner?! I myself love the fall and Halloween as for me it kicks off the whole season of celebrations, thanks and reflections to end the year and get started for the new year. How about everyone else?

    1. Um….Emptying shavings, out of the covered Kennel so we could put in river rock for the winter. Karma digs too much for the cedar shavings to stay clean in there.

      Chopping firewood, fixing the hot tub, building the firewood frame, pulling out compost for the empty raised beds, planing garlic, forgetting to buy a pumpkin when I am actually at a place that sells them.

      Soon, I will be pulling out the Tomatoes plants; I already pulled the squashes. I am trying to get as much done out side before the weather turns on us.

      Oh. And I have been playing that game Griz got me addicted to, ok, its not his fault, all he did was give everyone a link to it.

    2. Well, its hunting season.. so we camped out all week, then came home Friday. But we had a nice week. Took the quads up and the old trailer and just kicked back and putted around enjoying the views and some peace & quiet! Just couldn't get serious about hunting really! At least the weather was nice!

        1. No, it doesn't! But things have been pretty poor around here. No logging to create feed areas, two bad nasty winters with 5 ft of snow.. it took a big tole around here sadly. I hear the McKenzie side got hit also like this. Skimpy in the game dept. Hopefully the next couple of winters are mild also.

          To think they used to trap elk here to trade to other states and now its practically devastated here. Bottom line, it all stated with the environmentalists.. the train wreck it caused. Makes me sick!

        1. I wore mine on my last birthday. However I think I need to get a portable steamer, It seemed a little wrinkly! LOL

          I think you guys got me on my birthday this year… Yep, I remember the nice emails.

  4. A guy walks into a bar with his pet monkey.

    He orders a drink and while he's drinking, the monkey starts jumping all
    over the place.

    The monkey grabs some olives off the bar and eats them, then grabs some
    sliced limes and eats them,
    then jumps up on the pool table, grabs the cue ball, sticks it in his mouth
    and swallows it whole.

    The bartender screams at the guy, "Did you see what your monkey just did?"

    The guy says, "No, what?" "He just ate the cue ball off my pool table –
    whole!" says the bartender.

    "Yeah, that doesn't surprise me," replies the patron. "He eats everything in
    sight, the little jerk. I'll pay for the cue ball and stuff." He finishes
    his drink, pays his bill, and leaves.

    Two weeks later he's in the bar again, and he has his monkey with him. He
    orders a drink and the monkey starts running around the bar again.

    While the man is drinking, the monkey finds a maraschino cherry on the bar.
    He grabs it, sticks it up his butt, pulls it out, and eats it.

    The bartender is disgusted. "Did you see what your monkey did now?" "Now
    what?" asks the patron.

    "Well, he stuck a maraschino cherry up his butt, then pulled it out and ate
    it!" says the barkeeper.

    "Yeah, that doesn't surprise me," replies the patron.

    "He still eats everything in sight, but ever since he ate that cue ball he
    measures everything first!"

    1. I dunno … like you, I'm kind of a pack rat. Plus, there are comments about Jim there and I feel bad getting rid of those. Maybe I just need a new scratching post, but don't throw out the old one just yet. Or don't tell me, that way I don't have to make the decision to purge.

  5. Griz, here's a potential post subject, Gloria Allred seeks Rush Limbaugh prosecution. She is such a freaking publicity hound. Must be a slow day of ambulance chasing.

    1. I am not a huge Rush fan (not a 'ditto-head') .. but he does a good job at keeping 'things' in the public's eye, and keeps 'discussions' going (makes people think)

      Also – I have Never been a fan of Gloria Allred – She is nothing but a troublemaker – generally creating issues where they never needed to be created.

      Is Sandra Fluke a Slut? I don't know. If she isn't, then Rush was in the wrong, in calling her that (he should apologize – I think he has done so? – and let's be done with this)

      However – If a person wants readily available contraception, so that they can go out and "Slut around", then Yeah – They are A Slut .. and "Pointing out The Obvious" should Not be considered a wrong thing.
      … and now we have 0bamma poking his nose into it ?? .. BAH!!

      So – Sure – This might make for a fun Topic .. heh!

  6. Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked a young Engineer fresh out of Texas A&M, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"

    The Engineer said, "In the neighbourhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

    The interviewer said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5 weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, a company matching retirement fund for 50% of your salary, and a company car leased every 2 years — say, a red Corvette?"

    The Engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"

    And the interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."
