    They are indeed a band. But there is also a bumper stcking mocking the tree hugging crowd one that says "Envision world peace" that says "Envision Whirled Peas."

    I may be unusual in today's world but I happen to like peas. Plain, mixed in mashed potatoes, in tuna casserole, or in sh it on a shingle!

    Works good if the dentures don't fit right.

    I wonder if the current generation has ever eaten Sh it on a shingle? That was the only time I was allowed to cuss at home. "I'll have more sh it on a shingle please." Good times.

    Again, if you run a clean program that demands that juniors attend training, demonstrate cognitive knowledge and skills and participate in every aspect of the department's operations, I see no issues with juniors operating on the fireground.
    Then you've been on two departments that have the leadership skills of a crackhead mayor.
    If you THINK an 18 year old is "fully prepared to step into the role of an offensive firefighter and contribute as such", and "see no issues with juniors operating on the fireground", then you have the vision of Helen Keller.
    I personally see a 50/50 chance of this kid being arrested for arson, or getting his butt kicked by a REAL FIREFIGHTER.

    My mom used to make that when I was a kid. I loved it. I haven't made it for a quite a while but I can never quite make it like mom used to. Dad hated that stuff, called it "sh*t on a shingle" because that's what he ate most of the time in the CCC camp when he was a kid. I don't think he ever ate it again.

    Here's a little tune for him...

    "Devin"
    Sung to the tune of "Heaven", by Bryan Adams

    Oh, thinkin' about my younger days
    Moving up to a Minitor 3
    Installing lots of LED's

    Now the forums are where I’m gonna be
    They've been down this road before
    And old FyredUp
    Says I don’t need a radio

    And Walkie, you're all that I want
    When you're hangin' here on my belt
    You’re findin' it hard to believe
    You’re with Devin

    Programming is all that I need
    And I found it there in the barn
    It isn't too hard to see
    You’re with Devin

    Oh - once in your life you’re with someone
    Who will turn your clip around
    Turn you up when it’s goin' down

    Yeah - nothin' could change your frequency
    Oh there's lots that I could say
    But I’ll hold you now
    Cause I’ll say that I’m 10-8

    And Walkie, you're all that I want
    When you're hangin' here on my belt
    You’re findin' it hard to believe
    You’re with Devin

    Permission is all that I need
    And I found it with a white hat
    It isn't too hard to see
    You’re with Devin

    I've been waitin' for so long
    For somethin' small and black
    For tones to come along

    Now the traffic’s comin' through
    Through the speaker on your face
    Yeah - I'll be standin' there by you

    And baby, you're all that I want
    When you're lyin' here in my arms
    I'm findin' it hard to believe
    We're in heaven

    A thumb is all that I need
    And I press it there on your side
    It isn't too hard to speak
    You’re with Devin, Devin, oooh

    You're all that I want
    You're all that I need

    Now that is some seriously funny sh it right there. I can honestly say I laughed out loud while reading it. But I have to wonder Brother if maybe you have just a bit too much time on your hands...
