    As a high school social studies teacher, I can really appreciate this!
    Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

    I don't know about any of you, but I like to think that I am a better parent to my kids than mine were to me. I am amazed to have survived so far. No telling what the secondhand smoke damage to my young lungs will have in store for me at age 60.

    I just read an article from 1975 (a year after I was born) I'm glad I lived through the global cooling that the scientists were threating.

    I remember riding my bike out in the country for hours
    "[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
    They are left in full possession of them."

    Yeah, I had a really good slide rule (and knew how to use it) untill my senior year in high school when I pooled my scant funds and bought one of those new fangled calculators. In my computer science class we had a small tape drive and still had to learn switch entry machine language! We thought basic was incredible stuff!

    Thought nothing of riding 15 to twenty miles on a 10 speed on country roads to see a friend or go to the best swimming hole. That's right, no chlorine or life guards. Three water falls and trout to chase as well as critters in the woods. No doubt we were constantly in mortal danger by todays standards........
    If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good. ~ Thomas J. Watson, Jr.
