That looks very similar to our youngest daughter's arm...

I'll send her a link to the video but I'd guess you'd be hard pressed today to get her to use one.  She's learned a lot of 'work arounds' over the years and she can do most anything...

well, anything she 'wants' to do ;) ;) ;)

Well, I just posted about the 'bad' Deetroit police officer so here's one from the same department that helps balance out their perception!

A lady officer with 22 years on the job...

and off duty she rescues dogs from the streets of Deetroit!!!

Saw that on the news last night.  Still good people around.
I found a $50 bill in parking lot of credit union a year ago and left it with them.  Nobody claimed in for a month so they put it in my account.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Already some temps in the UP dropping below freezing at night!


Saw this on MLive this morning and thought it was a nice positive story for this thread...

then started reading some of the comments posted below and almost decided not to post it...

but, we need some good news (beyond they're going to plant new trees in Petersburg) so I'll go ahead and post it 8) 8) 8)

You can plant them but if you don't 'nurse' them along, they wind up like the trees along Waterstradt Parkway in Dumdee....  Deader than a doornail bottle brushes....

Nothing looks 'better' than a dead tree.  Really sparks up the neighborhood....

Good news is a freeze will eridicate all the flies and nusiance bugs.  I can't wait.

Well if you had better personal hygiene habits...you wouldn't attract so many flies.

But I understand the habits acquired in the trucking industry may be difficult to break.

I bet you carry the typical portable bathroom with you as well...(pop bottle/milk jug/gatorade bottle)

Or maybe since you're approaching the fossil age...and based on your comments, have some anal leakage issues...wearing Depends may be more your thing.

No matter...the most abundant insect around here seems to be spiders.

So while cold weather can be a positive in some ways...I'm still not looking forward to it.

If you are so cock sure I use a whizz bottle, then, next time I'm driving by your shack, I'll toss some in your front yard.....  Just remember that ain't Vernors in that Vernors bottle......

I'll save the soiled depends as well and toss a bag your way...  That should help you with an impending Fry (ooops I mean fly) issue.

Thanks for validating my post.

But I can't take all the credit for connecting the dots...considering you practically draw a self-portrait with every utterance.  ;D

For those who don't have facebook, this is a video that shows a prosthetic arm that can be made in under 2 days and costs $3000.

I did find a youtube one that showed similar images.
