    Hated every second of catching it and absolutely loathed forcing myself to eat it.

    Ah well, Fishing again for more bloody Snapper tommorow afternoon, I guess I will just have to do it.
    Got curious and looked up that John Dory...it's a weird looking fish. How do you prefer to cook it and what's it taste like?

    I am not sure what I would do, especially if I didn't know what I was doing. But, if I knew what to do and how to do it, at least then I might be able to decide whether or not to do it. I think I will go hunting......yes.....sounds like something to do,

    Lord, I apologize for that last statement.

    If you have something to do, but you didn't do it, then you can't be called a quitter for something you never began, but you could be called a slacker for not pulling your weight, unless you did something better than the first thing you didn't do. Why would you not do what you didn't do, if you could do so much better? I guess it depends on how you get what you got done after you did all you didn't.

    Or you could just take (c.) and call it done.

    Just got off the phone with my daughters who are driving from NY to Ohio.

    Right now they are in Jersey.

    I'm in front of the computer giving them information on what ro expect for weather ahead of them.

    In the background on the phone is the daughters' GPS telling her to stay left and follow I-80.

    I'm wondering if the kids are too dependent upon this wild technology and how they would fare without it.

    Also, I feel sorry for Rand-McNally.

    There is Rand-McNally software that helps keep people current and up to date in their electronic mapping on GPS receivers. I suspect they don't mind..I think they call it "enviromentally freindly" because by not printing paper maps, they are "saving trees."


    I personally LOVE my paper maps. There is something great about finding places on your own. It's like having your own treasure map to the world around you.

    I like just taking off and driving sometimes...no maps, no plans...just to see where the day takes me (it's usually a lake or the mountains ).

    Jerry, People aren't lost, they just don't know where they are in relation to where they want to get to. I can truthfully say that I've never been lost. Yet.

    With this to pontificate, will the thread die if the thread killer gets lost??

    One is never lost, he is simply misplaced.

    That is silly.

    If the Thread Killer is lost, how is he to kill the thread that he cannot find?

    Your thinking is flawed. In order to be a thread killer in the first place, that person would already have found the thread he/she killed, regardless if he/she had/has subsequently lost the original thread he/she killed.

    hwoods got it exactly right. You can never truly be lost.

    As for myself I always know where I am.

    At the exact center of the universe.

    Now wasn't that simple?

    Me neither, but only cuz it ain't safe to do so. Not saying I am not adventurous, because I am the kind of guy who asks "Where does this road go?" and then drive down it to find out.
