    If I didn't go fishing... shuddering at the thought... Well, let's not go there. It wouldn't be a pretty sight. I'd have to start acting like normal people. There is no fun in that. Besides, when the global economy collapses and people have to resort back to being hunter/gatherers, me and Harve will be trading fish for other resources. "Want some fish? Yeah, I got fish, but it's gonna cost you..."

    Amen! I like to hear about people going fishing, but I would encourage it to be done legally.. Most states use the license fees to support their wildlife agencies. I've seen Mississippi's officers being limited by their budget, and it isn't the best way to promote our resources.. State lakes have cut out boat rentals because of threats of lawsuits, swimming areas are being closed down, and general maintenance issues are being left to private organizations once the funds are gone. So, by all means, buy a license and help support those who protect our resources! ....stepping down from soapbox....

    In all honesty, I wouldn't fish without a license. What with 6 days a week at work plus studying, on Sundays, I'm just too tired to do much of anything, even fishing.

    What, your tractors don't have an ignition key? I only have pull ropes on my push mower and weed eater.

    Or do you mean that your tractors don't work and have to be drug about?

    Does that mean his tractors just lay about using drugs? From the sounds of it, can't be 'speed'...

    Reminded me of a call late last night. Paged out to a "Grass & Scrub Fire - House Fire" Had us wondering if it was one of those people who grow 'grass' in the roof cavity, and it had caught fire through poorly/illegally wired lighting? The backburn method of controlling a grassfire would have been a little tough on the neighbours... Of course it turned out to be one of those brainless little turkeys that remove the SIM card from a phone then make the emergency call.

    Did you guys introduce the "turkey" to the wide range uses of 2 1/2", 225gpm fire streams, including how it affects the human body?

    We wish mate, oh we wish! Untraceable here unfortunately One thing, at least the idiot put his second hoax call for the night in before we'd had time to go back home to bed.

    There was a guy a few years ago in Victoria who got charged (dont recall the outcome though) for placing a false 911 call for Coast Guard assist.

    Turned out that his boat was perched on the trailer in his front yard. He'd had a few beers and was making false radio reports. His neighbour heard him, and made the appropriate call to RCMP who then of course arrested him.

    Why would anyone train a dog to hunt corn?

    It isn't like it is going anywhere is it.

    "Hey did you see some corn run past here?"

    "Now where has that pesky field of corn got to?"

    And why would someone spend all that time training a dog to hunt corn to then give it away?

    Obviously, Flying Kiwi, you have never seen a field of corn take flight and run away from home in the company of a tornado. "Go find 'em boy!"

    Diamonds aren't always forever. There's a brisk trade in rings and other gifts from former sweeties

    Jill Serjeant, Reuters Published: Monday, May 05, 2008

    LOS ANGELES -- Diamonds might be forever. But what's a girl to do when she gets dumped or divorced and those rings, necklaces and love gifts lose their emotional sparkle?

    Help is just a click away on new websites that provide an outlet for selling jewelry from past relationships, sharing break-up stories and helping broken hearts heal.

    "You go through a divorce. What do you do with that ring? Maybe you have a child you can pass it on to. Maybe you don't. It just sits there," said Marie Perry, who with her stepdaughter Megahn Perry runs www.exboyfriendjewelry.com.

    We wanted to create a platform in the community where people can get in contact with others with similar needs," Perry told Reuters.

    Three months after its launch with the slogan "You Don't Want It. He Can't Have It Back," the website has 3,000 registered users and more than 600 postings of rings, bracelets and earrings for sale -- all with a personal tale attached.

    "Studs from a Dud," writes one woman, selling a pair of cubic zirconia earrings given to her three years ago.

    Six months later, she says, the boyfriend dumped her over the phone -- while she was recovering from brain surgery.

    "Oops," writes another, selling a white gold wedding band. "Hey, Mom and Dad, remember that time I got married really young? Sorry about that. I can't pay you back for the wedding, but I'll split whatever I get for these with you. Deal?"

    "We wanted to keep the tone fun and tongue in cheek. There are some bitter women but most stories are really light-hearted although a few are about people who have been in an abusive situation. But now they are ready to move on," said Perry.

    The idea was born when Megahn Perry, a Los Angeles actress and writer, was looking for a safe, reliable place to sell a wedding set after an amicable divorce and realized others might have boyfriend jewelry languishing in drawers or with attendant memories that make them too painful to wear.

    One woman posting a diamond ring for $3,500 wrote: "Beautiful ring came with the wrong man. Decided to sell to regain the money that I spent finishing payments on the ring that my ex didn't."

    Many women aren't comfortable visiting a pawn shop or Ebay. Perry and her stepmother Marie, researched the market and found a gap in it.

    New Orleans students, Allison Wasserman and Elizabeth Rothbeind, set up a similar venture, www.Ex-cessories.com, in April after a teary afternoon sorting out mementos of an ex-boyfriend. With the motto "Don't Get Mad -- Break Even," it offers independent appraisals of jewelry, matches buyers with sellers, and provides a social network.

    Are you thinking in terms of being shadowed around town or perhaps satellite surveillance?

    I just have a feeling that, somewhere, somebody is watching us on a computer monitor. It's almost like they are hanging on our every word.

    Could it be that we are just puppets in a giant show for the world to see?
