You all know him as Seeg on this message board. RIP my friend..

It was about getting people to be charitable.

you really took the time to watch a 27 minute video? you can tell we attention deficit people what it was about...

Sounds like me in an night club.
This is a full video from Rick Warren on today's "Meet the Press."   Many have very strong opinions about this man but whether you are a Christian, Jew, Atheist or other I think you will find it very interesting and eye-opening.  It is 27 minutes long but well worth your time.  Hope you take the time to watch it and comment.

Agree, needs to stop, blurps and link to full story is all I want to allow.

Don't get me wrong, we are hillbillys, just not as hillbilly as Plato.
Funny, when I went to college at Kirksville everyone thought I was from the deep south!

Here is my take on the pronunciation of Missouri in Pulaski County. Not that you care, but here goes..
If it were not for the Fort we Waynesville graduates would have had a stronger southern accent. We did notice while in school that kids from the surrounding smaller towns definitely had a stronger southern accent than we did. I recall Laquey student didn't come to Waynesville until they went to High School, as they only went to 9th at Laquey back then. For us it was a culture shock when they joined our ranks. I still notice the difference in accents from this town to other small local towns. I say Missoure, not Missourah..

So are you gonna email rick since i pronounce it differently?? I'm gonna get suspended. 10,000 people here say eeee and one person says it differently and now im in trouble. :)

Al is busy trying to figure out why there are more Polar Bears now than there was when he said they were dying off.
I read this and almost posted it earlier but chose not to.  However, this statement seems to say quite a bit; "He alludes to a technique used by a fellow scientist to "hide the decline" in recent global temperatures."

Where's Al Gore when you need him?  ;D

Long time ago when I worked for MSC TV & Stereo in St. Bob, we had commercials that said our store is located on the corner of walk and don't walk, right outside the main gate of Fot Lost in the Woods. The general called and asked we remove that line from our commercial. Guess they didn't like that.

Fort Lost In The Woods in the state of Misery is where we are.

Is this Pulaskah County Too? LOL

Gotta disagree with ya on that one, Dave.  I was born and raised in Pulaski County and I've always pronounced it Missourah...  However, if I remember correctly, Chas and I had this conversation once (and he's a Pulaski guy too) and he uses the "eee".  I know it's a dialect thing but I've lived all around the state and from what I have experienced GENERALLY the northern part of the state and KC and STL is "eee" while the southern part of the state is "ahh". 

This would be a good one for a survey.  I do think the majority of people from out of state pronounce it "eee" though!

Not while they burn our flags and call for our death in their streets regularly.
Pretty hard to find reason for suspension in that, huh?

With the end of the earths people in 2012 maybe they figure health costs could surge.
If that post is true What The (and I am not going to argue it is or isn't), one has to wonder why congress isn't going to have the proposed insurance reform bill kick in until 2013.  How many people are they letting die according to that article by delaying the start of the program.

The tax to pay for the program starts immediately, but the program itself doesn't start until 2013, that is one of many moves used to get the revenue netural status some wanted.  Of course another is shifting much of the cost to the states...well except for LA.

Just a thought.

Only paid SOME of the interest, so that means the debt is growing.
Officeholders freeze salaries

The Mirror
After a brief hearing at the Thursday meeting of the Pulaski County Commission, the county officeholders voted to keep salaries where they are.
The vote took place after County Clerk Diana Linnebringer told the officeholders, acting as the Salary Commission, that the countyís budget could not support a salary increase.
Linnenbringer also pointed out that the county had to borrow $150,000 last year. The county has paid back some of the interest on that loan, but none of the principal.
Linnenbringer told the officeholders that the county is projected to have $7,400 left in general revenue at the end of the fiscal year.
She also said the county will have to pay for two elections next year.  © Copyright 2008 by

With gas prices soaring, many Americans are looking for ways to stay away from the gas pump. A lot of those folks are turning to two-wheeled vehicle to take the sting out of the cost of gasoline. Motorcycle and scooter use is on the rise. Along with this increase in riders comes an increase in motorcycle accidents. Drivers in Missouri are no exception. In 2005 there were 91 motorcycle accidents that ended in fatality in Missouri. This number represented 7.2 percent of the number of vehicle accidents that resulted in death. In 2006 there were 93 deaths (8.5 percent of the total). While nationally the number of fatalities from accidents decreased between 2005 and 2006, the number of motorcycle accidents increased. 4,576 riders were killed in 2005 and 4,810 riders died in 2006.
Motorcycle accidents happen for a variety of reasons. The largest number, by far, involve another vehicle, usually a passenger vehicle. Most of the drivers of these other vehicles claim not to have seen the bike at all or not to have seen it in time to avoid the accident. Intersections are one of the most dangerous locations for motorcycle riders and their passengers. A motorcycle already looks different than anything else on the road and the slightest distraction to an operator of another vehicle can render the motorcycle invisible. In most cases, the driver of the car or truck will violate the motorcycle riderís right-of-way and hit the bike. In accidents like this there is a 98 percent chance that injury will occur. There is a 45 percent chance that the injuries sustained will much more than minor. Motorcycle accidents that involve another vehicle make up three-fourths of the accidents that occur.
The other one-fourth of the accidents only involve the bike. It is estimated that 92 percent of the riders who have accidents are essentially untrained. Most of them are self-taught or have been taught by friends and family. In a lot of cases, a rider will enter a curve traveling too fast. If the rider tries to lean far enough to make a particularly sharp corner, it is possible that the tires will lose traction and slide out form under the bike. If that occurs, the bike will end up on its side and, most likely, slide along the roadway. If the rider, bike and any passengers slide into oncoming traffic or any barrier along the road, injuries will become more severe. The other possibility is that the rider will not lean far enough to make the corner and under steer. Again, it is possible for the rider to be sent into oncoming traffic or into anything else in the surroundings. In these single-vehicle crashes, there is a 96 percent chance of injury.
Other factors are also present in many accidents. About three percent can be contributed to some type of vehicle malfunction such as a flat tire or stalled engine. Another three percent involve the roadway itself, either imperfections such as potholes and crumbling pavement or animals in the path of the motorcycle. It is estimated that only about two percent of the accidents involve weather as a direct factor. Unfortunately, alcohol is still a factor in over fifty percent of the accidents. 37 percent of all motorcyclists were speeding at the time of the accident.
Helmets are required for all riders in the state of Missouri. It is estimated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that 752 lives might have been saved in 2006 with the use of head gear. To be allowed by law to ride a motorcycle in the state of Missouri, you must posses a Class M endorsement on your driverís license. To get your endorsement, you must get your riding permit by passing a written knowledge test and a vision exam. There are rider safety courses available to help train you in the proper safety rules. They also provide instruction in such things as turning, stopping, collision avoidance and maintenance of the bike. Your learnerís permit is good for six months. You must take and pass a road skills test to gain the final endorsement.

I stand corrected it does include the park system. I don't know where I got the idea it didn't. Property tax rolled back too..  Brilliant. I was sold without that part.
