     Internet service made a great progress way now to make the life a lot easier then ever. It is interfering with every factor of the living to a point that it is being a need to for most of us. For this reason flower delivery companies has moved their companies on-line to make the internet flower ordering experience super easy and fast, your flowers will probably be just a couple mouse clicks away just before they may be delivered anywhere at any time you desire.

    One reason we know Fast And Furious comes before Tokyo Drift is because
    in FAF Han says something about a new style of racing in Tokyo and that
    he’s going there.

    I wonder if you can drive a hoopdie like a hoon :)

    I recall a Cisco Engineer telling me when he was teaching CCNA boot camp in Australia and he called a router “rooter” and got snickers from the audience. He asked what was funny and they said a rooter is something really nasty

    I used to watch Paul Hogan’s comedy show before he was crocodile dundee, and thought the show needed subtitles (oz to english)

    I remember hearing the phrase “stone the crows” and it took me a while to figure that out.

    Damn Venom I’m trying to find and talk to you through your recently posted comments, it is showing in the recently posted box that you did indeed not long ago post, but I search both lessons that are the ones that it says and states that you in fact did so. But I can’t find them no where on the lesson pages themselves. I looked many times over, and on my screen, what I’m seeing, experiencing, on my on, or my view, what I’m seeing anyhow it just is showing up posted for some reason, I tried to talk to you and a few others in your metal/rock forum, I have been trying posting and replying and for me at least, a very big portion of them never show up, I been trying to talk or communicate, with you and others for days, and next to nothing is actually working posting to you my friend, Believe me I tried very many times brother Well I can only hope this posts right and you see or notice it, no other way I know of to get you my friend, which is sad a a damn shame if you ask me, We the best of friends, I see nothing at all from holding us back brother! So please work with me , if you possibly can. The call and it is left to you, the balls in your court, I’m reaching out, as a real/true friend, and the real me, the real deal, speaking to you know. Please don’t let me down, or behind, if you so choose to leave as by some of your earlier comments that I noticed or seen, before up till now, mostly what you said or did is cut off and hidden in the recently posted comments box. And to me they are invisable, no where to be found out here in the lesson pages, I’m having trouble even finding some of your earlier posts, and if I did find them, almost didn’t make it, or was messed up and distorted. Well I trying, it just isn’t flying right now, and as of just recently. Well hope to hear from you and every soon. Peace! Neo! Out!

    It looks and kind of reminds me of photobucket.com, but in my think full Adobe picture album, there is no way that I can find or see here to move, or edit or do anything that I want or need to do, when I try to send them straight threw photobucket, with the proper codes, on some it keeps coming up error no matter what, and is putting me behind, and making it even longer, and slower progress, a monkey wrench in the gears, and faulting and stopping me from making it the way I feel and wish, and think is needed to create, and make a proper work of art, and the best possible tribute, to admit, and have to let these pictures, and images go would be sacrificing, and severly hindering my art, as to what I want, and Am trying so hard to obtain, or even come close!, Does anybody understand what I’m saying, and asking, or will this, if this will even post properly! I can and get most of my stuff to go through Photobucket, but there are always some that willn’t go through, no matter what, and the only other option is to save as, and it automatically go and be saved in my Abode Album, and nothing I have done or tried, even anything remotely close, on transferring, or sending someone else, or get a code, or anything while in the album. So some of these pictures that are a big and important part of my work of art, and some of these missing pieces, seem to be in limbo, and stuck in the abyss, or no way to extract, or send, or make them work, and be postable here, I can’t figure it out or see no way to anything of the type! Registering on the site, might lead me, and take me to what I need, or is there other options or ways to make these pictures, and images ETC. to be able to transform, and make forum, useable, or postable type of form or code! I’m running into all kinds of snags, and problems, and this is only slowing, or stopping me to be as complete and more to what I’m trying to achieve and make the best art according to my scope and ability, much of what I did learn and was taught, a lot of was from mt best friend VenomRock, there were a few others that helped and contributed in different ways, to all them whom have been with me through it all, and helped me in any way, thank you very much, very appreciate, and greatful for it all, And Venom your simply the best, and all your teaching and training has helped, and been one of the biggest factor towards me ever even get to even try and display and show, and create art, in my own way, and times, try to experiment, or change to see if I can get at least one to come along for the ride, abd enjoy, and love the direction their going, and become in their own right an artist, and express, your true self, and it is good for many things, to come and post, and have at least a few to help, or join together at times, to express our love, and passions, and communicate, and have fun, and love what you, or anyone can that likes, or somewhat agrees with at least some of what another person may like, or bring forth and share what they feel and love to express of themselves, and their own tastes. So any and all possible help in any or all of these matters I just recently mentioned/posted! Neo ! Out! Peace!

    Oh another issue or problem is how to make use and be able to use, in the forums, or where I want to post or move them, some of my pictures/images ETC., they go straight to my adobe photo album, and tried signing up for the free on line thing, and it said and claimed that it was no longer an option, or free. But it did say to go to Photoshop.com and take care of my images/photos, It required me to register, to be able to use, but I’m stuck, on what is my personal URL, what is is it, how do I get it or find it, or do I even got one, Help! I’m in total darkness towards this matter, any help would be much appreciated! Thank you! Neo Out! Peace!

    Well I got a lot of work waiting for me in the forum’s, a very big project, in fact it may be the biggest, and most time consuming, and work that I have ever worked on and posted before, or so it looks and seems at this time, Got to rescribe, and reinstall my new Norton Internet Security, and was think of checking out the site I think it is is something like cleanmypc, or something close to that if not exactly right, and see the cost, and if it would be a good purphase, and help speed up, and get rid of any errors, or things that could slow down, or bog down my PC, and would this even be worth it, would it help or fix the issues, and problems I’m having. I might not even be able to find or see the exact, right site that I heard and seen advertised on T.V. If I type it in wrong, I many not come up with anything, or things that I probably don’t want or need, Has anybody heard, or know of any such thing, or something else that may be better, to fix my problems, My Norton internet, will only fix so many things, and others, it doesn’t or willn’t fix them no matter what!

    There are two arguments against the “it’s the library’s fault” theory:
    1. This problem only started showing up in the last half-dozen or so blogs. VR, how far back in time have you seen this problem?
    2. I had my sister look at two blogs using her own PC and she could see all the comments, including the Facebook and Twitter areas.

    I don’t see what firewalls have to do with it; this library has had them for years, but this problem has only recently appeared. Anyway, what about a firewall would truncate some blogs, but not others?

      Somehow, the above comment was misposted at the first level instead of a reply. That’s not what is so bad; it got posted as Guest instead of me, so I couldn’t delete it or edit it down to nil.

      I have been looking at my DISQUS dashboard, and it seems you can edit and delete from there! (I don’t see any way to delete a comment from HFW.) I am still trying to find out just how DISQUS works and the whole point of it.

        U don’t know for sure Camp, I have done this by trying to delete posts in the lesson pages, and by totally, deleting and get rid of an account all together, What have you come up with. I’m no expert or 100% sure on this, but what it seems to me, and at different times had this very type of thing happen, I think in our avatar menu, not sure now after all this mess, or maybe it was on the Gravatar website. Anyhow I noticed that there are ones that are under the same or associated with the same email address , there should be default setting and different accounts, which you can add or change the info in some of these, but some I think what is happening, is that they are, or the website, or sites, are logging you out of your main, or the one you have selected to use, and logging you into there Guest account, which has allows been there in my accounts, and selections useable, and this anonymous or Guest account, has always been there and an option, or a valid and useable account, or functional somehow, I never did or even think of being able to manually change and log yourself in this matter, it was done by someone else, or the website making unlog and automatically log me in that type of account that your talking about. I never tried to do this, it just seemed to happen by itself, or from other source, site, or person, or persons, or is it all could possibly be a part of all the things, happening wrong here, and maybe gravatar, it doesn’t seem to function or work right from me most of the time anymore, but to do this on purpose, or log in yourself, manually some how, I don’t know for sure, have you found, or could log into this yourself?. Damn I’m not sure if this will help you, but at least I tried to give you all that I know at this point, I don’t even know if this will post/reply, and it somehow has messed up, the order and things on my sentences are not in proper order or form, and I’m not sure I can fix it or figure it out now for sure or not, I know at least some and part of this post has at least done this.I see what I can do to try and figure it out and fix it, if I can. I will now try to fix, and reply to ya brother. Cross your fingers, or whatever you do or can think of doing to make this reply to work, and in it’s proper, and original type out order, now I’m not sure where it all messed up at, and if I can find, and figure out how to reconstruct them back the way I first had them, and wanted them to be. I have enough problems/issues, than to also have these type of things making a simple reply , a hassle and a task, and will it post, or go to the top of the page, or what else could happen or be present, to come along and screw everything up! Well I will now go and look at try to figure out how to fix, and send, but the rest, even these could very well be out of my hands or doing. I never got an kind of notice either in my email to alert me of your reply, I just decided and manually checked to find this. Well whatever it is, I hope you figure, or get it to work, that would be cool to be able to manually log into an Guest Account in a ay, and other ways it would, Well to each there own. Hope to see or hear from you soon! Neo! Out! Peace! Fire In The Whole!!!

    A Coon Huntin Story… High Ball… Knock Him Out John… The Original Blue Collar Comedian Jerry Clower.
    ….

    ….something interesting….The end of communism wasn’t all good news for Eastern Europe. Since the revolutions of the late 1980s, the number of fatal traffic accidents there has skyrocketed.

    ..something from the past—IMDB says: Paramount, 1932. This is the fourth of seven stories in this film, in which a dying tycoon gives million-dollar windfalls to people picked from the city phone directory. “Emily (Alison Skipworth), and Rollo La Rue (W.C. Fields), a vaudevillian and juggler, are owners of a boardinghouse. They acquire a brand new car, and after a drive, they return with a car wrecked by a “road hog.” After obtaining the million dollar check from Glidden, they purchase a fleet of cars and get even with the “road hogs” about town by having a car-smashing day. Of all the episodes, this is the one most remembered, even long after the movie is over.” Part 1of2 is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDSW-ybm0mg

    Damn I just tried on this new account I tried through here, and through gravatar, I got images and pictures, and plans to use some of them, but ro no luck or prevail, nothing but fail, all well thank you for your posts/replies, and time, and your caring and trying to help me out, Thanks oh so much Venom! You got any Vampires or any supernatural beings that need terminated, I love hunting and killing them, I also love and hold close to my heart these things as well, more than enough sides for me on this and many subjects. I was always a fool for horror, and darker themed ideas, but in most of them the evil entites usually are the ones vanquished, even through all there awesomeness, and unbelieveable power, and nearly unkillable, how do you or how can you kill something that is already dead, and to be immortal, or a God of sorts. Damn my grammar and spelling anyhow. Peace Out! Neo Gone, but hopefully never totally forgotten. I so wish I could get my avatars to show up and be able to use. But I guess those are just the breaks and the way things are happening for now!

    Hello sir , so dang wonderful to hear from ya, I currently, and have been using Norton Internet Security for along time know, I tried a few others but they cost a lot more and others about the same price, or maybe just a slight tad cheaper, but out of all for the price for Norton, and if I buy it from my local computer shop, you can use it on up to three computers, and is good for a full year. I’m not sure but to me it has helped and worked better and cost less than most, so that what I stick with, how about you brother, you got any kind, or what kind of coverage do you use. Well see you later, but hopefully sooner. Neo Out Peace!

This is Neo, and yes the post above where for you, I posted directly, where the post was, and it just automatically went to the top of the screen, I have an old Dell, and an Alienware computer, and I’m always running into something or another, Norton, is supposed to be a pretty good virus and computer saving, but I get more problems than what I ever thought or exspected. Bu that is the best affordable type of protection I can get. I hope everything on my end, and here will get set straight regardless, Well see you soon!

    I’ve never heard that term ‘hoon’ before. There’s street racing in the Puget Sound area too and the media here is well aware of it.

    In the description for the YT video someone writes NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY TO GET OUT, THEY KEEP PULLIN ME BACK IN…. If that’s true, unfortunately it will take them getting into a serious reck to wake them up and even that won’t change some people. I can’t really rank on these people for street racing, I was young once too.

    A Cowboy Rides Into Town

    A cowboy rode into town and stopped at the saloon for a drink. Unfortunately, the locals always had a habit of picking on newcomers. When he finished, he found his horse had been stolen.

    He comes back into the bar, handily flips his gun into the air, catches it above his head without even looking and fires a shot into the ceiling. “Who stole my horse?” he yelled with surprising forcefulness.

    No one answered.

    “I’m gonna have another beer and if my horse ain’t back outside by the time I’m finished, I’m gonna do what I dun back in Texas and I don’t want to have to do what I dun back in Texas!”

    Some of the locals shifted restlessly.

    He had another beer, walked outside, and his horse was back! He saddled up and started to ride out of town.

    The bartender wandered out of the bar and asked, “Say partner, what happened in Texas?”

    The cowboy turned back and said, “I had to walk home!”

    Expensive Doctor

    A young woman wasn’t feeling well, and asked one her co-workers to recommend a physician.

    “I know a great one in the city, but he is very expensive. Five hundred dollars for the first visit, and one hundred dollars for each one after that.”

    The woman went to the doctor’s office and, trying to save a little money, cheerily announced.

    “I’m back!”

    Not fooled for a second, the doctor quickly examined her and said, “Very good, just continue the treatment I prescribed on your last visit.”

    Lemons

    A woman went to a Florida lemon grove to apply for a job, but the foreman thought she seemed way too qualified for the position. “Do you even have any actual experience picking lemons?” he asked.

      Whenever I used a public computer especially at a library I ran into that same problem of all comments not showing up on the lessons pages. Only maybe a 1/4 of the comments would appear depending on how many total comments were posted. I asked one of their computer techs there and they suggested maybe it’s because they have a lot of firewalls and things like that setup on their computers. She didn’t know for sure because she wasn’t familiar with Marina’s site. I don’t run into that problem at home.

      • Camp Kohler - Sacramento CA says:

        There are two arguments against the “it’s the library’s fault” theory:
        1. This problem only started showing up in the last half-dozen or so blogs. How far back in time have you seen this problem?
        2. I had my sister look at two “bad” blogs using her own PC and she could see all the comments, including the Facebook and Twitter areas.

        I don’t see what firewalls have to do with it; this library has had them for years, but this problem has only recently appeared. Anyway, what about a firewall would truncate some blogs, but not others?

        • VenomRocK says:

          I would say maybe a month. But I don’t use the computer much at the library maybe two or three times in that month period and that’s where I noticed the problem that you’re talking about here.
          I got a little curious the other day and checked out this site on different computers at different locations.
          The first was at my work. And wouldn’t you know the same problem shows up there too. Not all comments appear.
          I then checked with a friend on their computer and everything shows up on theirs just like at my home.

          So I don’t really know why that is. The only similarities I can see with the library and my work is they both use Windows XP for their running system and internet explorer for their browser but I don’t think that would cause any problems? My friend and I have different systems. I use Safari for my browser and he uses Mozilla Firefox for his.

          About firewalls, I have no idea about that. The librarian is the one who suggested that.

          ….I can see today that the mystery still goes on.

      I’ve always heard the word ‘squid’ as being military slang for a US Navy sailor.

      A Marine might say “Man, there are a lot of squids in here.”

    ——— Father fined for tattooing toddler ———

    ROME, Ga. – A Georgia man who pleaded guilty to tattooing his 2-year-old son has been fined $300 and sentenced to a year’s probation. Eugene Ashley, 26, was arrested in 2009 after the Department of Family and Children Services made a home visit and saw the letters “DB” tattooed on the toddler’s shoulder, the Rome (Ga.) News-Tribune reported Tuesday. When arrested, Ashley told police “DB” stood for “Daddy’s Boy.” The boy was three at the time, but District Attorney Leigh Patterson said the tattooing had occurred a year earlier. In Georgia it is illegal to tattoo a child younger than 18. Patterson called the crime egregious but said it would have been impossible to go to a jury with the case because of the victim’s age. “I don’t know if we would be able to elicit a testimony from a child,” Patterson said.

    —– Ohio man charged for barking at police dog —–

    MASON, Ohio – Police in Ohio said a man was charged with a misdemeanor count of teasing a police dog after he was spotted making barking sounds at the canine. Mason Police said Officer Bradley Walker was investigating a car crash outside the Mason Pub at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday when he heard the police dog in the back seat of his car “barking uncontrollably” in response to Ryan Stephens, 25, “making barking noises” and “hissing” at the animal, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Wednesday. Walker said Stephens began to walk away from the scene and ignored commands to stop. He said he caught up with the suspect and asked him why he was harassing the canine. “The dog started it,” Stephens allegedly replied. Stephens, who Walker said appeared “highly intoxicated,” was released to a bar employee who promised to drive him home. He was ordered to appear in court April 21 to face a charge of teasing a police dog.

    I was going to write about a group of students at a Massachusetts prep school who have broken a world record by folding a 13,000-foot length of toilet paper in half 13 times…and while that is news worthy, I stumbled across a much more science fictiony article.

    Researchers at Washington University have demonstrated that humans can control a cursor on a computer screen using words spoken in their head. In other words, Daily Tips Special For You

    By directly connecting the patient’s brain to a computer, the researchers showed that the computer could be controlled with up to 90 percent accuracy even when no prior training was given to the subjects.

    How is this miracle of science achieved? With a technique called electrocortiography — which involves placing electrodes directly onto a patient’s brain to record electrical activity.

    If this doesn’t sound like The Matrix to you yet, keep reading.

    In the future researchers hope to permanently insert implants into a patient’s brain to help restore functionality and, even more impressively, read someone’s mind.

    Dr. Eric Leuthardt of Washington University School of Medicine said, “This is one of the earliest examples of what is called ‘reading minds’ — detecting what people are saying to themselves in their internal dialogue.”

    And all you have to do is insert some wires into your brain. The government should be mandating it in about ten years.

    The Redneck and the Chainsaw

    A red neck walks into a hardware store and asks for a chain saw that will cut 6 trees in one hour. The salesman recommends the top of the line model. The red neck is suitably impressed, and buys it.

    The next day he brings it back and says, “This chainsaw is defective. It would only cut down one tree and it took all the gosh-darned day!”

    The salesman takes the chain saw, starts it up to see what’s wrong, and the red neck asks, “What’s that noise?

    Neighbors in Montana

    A sucessful business man became disenchanted with the stress of the fast life in the big city and decides to chuck it all. He takes his savings and purchases a large ranch in the middle of nowhere in Montana.

    After a couple of months of enjoying the solitude he hears the drumming of hoofbeats outside his cabin. Grabbing his rifle he challenges the man riding up on the horse.

    “Hold it neighbor” the man says, ” I’m your neighbor, I have a ranch only six miles from here, and I want to invite you to a Welcome Party I’m throwing for you next Saturday. There’s going to be music, dancing, hugging, kissing, drinking, fighting…. We’ll have a great time”.

    Not wanting to be unneighborly the new rancher lowers the rifle and ask’s ” How should I dress?”

    ” Aw, don’t matter” replied the neighbor, ” Only gonna be the two of us”.

    Nerd Overpopulation

    This truck driver hauling a tractor-trailer load of computers stops for a beer. As he approaches the bar he sees a big sign on the door saying “Nerds Not Allowed – Enter At Your Own Risk!” He goes in and sits down.

    The bartender comes over to him, sniffs, says, “You smell kind of nerdy. What do you do for a living?”

    The truck driver says, “I drive a truck, and the smell is just from the computers I am hauling.”

    The bartender says, “Okay, truck drivers are not nerds.” and serves him a beer. As he is sipping his beer, a skinny guy walks in with tape around his glasses, a pocket protector with twelve kinds of pens and pencils, and a belt at least a foot too long. The bartender, without saying a word, pulls out a shotgun and blows the guy away.

    The truck driver said, totally shocked, “Why did you do that?”

    The bartender said, “Not to worry, the nerds are overpopulating Silicon Valley and are in season now. You don’t even need a license.”

    The truck driver finishes his beer, gets back in his truck, and heads back onto the freeway. Suddenly he veers to avoid an accident, and the load shifts. The back door breaks open and computers spill out all over the freeway. He jumps out and sees a crowd already forming, grabbing up the computers. They are all engineers, accountants and programmers wearing the nerdiest clothes he has ever seen.

    He can’t let them steal his whole load. So, remembering what happened in the bar, he pulls out his gun and starts blasting away, felling several of them instantly. A highway patrol officer comes zooming up and jumps out of the car screaming at him to stop.

    The truck driver said, “What’s wrong? I thought nerds were in season.”

    “Well, sure,” said the patrolman. “But you can’t bait ‘em.”

    A bill has been introduced in the Texas legislature to increase the highway speed limit to 85 mph (about 137 kph). Unless you’re on a long, empty stretch of road, I don’t see this as a good idea. I doubt that the bill will pass the requisite tests and safety studies before it is even voted upon; but if it does pass, being a hoon (in the sense of speeding) may become a legal privilege of licensed drivers. I think, even without the safety issues, that with the current price of fuel drivers would be hesitant to zoom along at those speeds. But then I get in my car, get out on the highway, and get passed by a couple of nut-jobs in a hurry to get to WalMart.

    • RazielSoulReaver says:

      It is like they want to create hoons, cars and all types of vehicles that go way faster than really needed, or always way about most speed limits, but the cops and such have cars just as faster or faster than most things on or off the road. Nascar is a big time sport, and jacking up that speed limit to 85 MPH. Every where you look you see fast cars, and how fun and great it is to do so! Hey Dez, how are you, what’s up lately. Is it even safe in the streets anymore, for anyone to drive and stay safe/feel safe, and not have people tailgating, and riding your bumper, or passing, and risking their lives and others, it’s a jungle out there, It only takes a split second for an accident or crash to happen.

    In my neighborhood there are no hoons (whether pimps or risky drivers), but my city and state are overrun with them. For the Southerners in the crowd… would that make cops hoon-dogs when they are chasing down offenders of the traffic laws? I agree with one of the earlier comments, that the use of this word in the US would likely get confused with a racial slur. So if the Monday morning commute is terrible, be careful to whom you shout the term “hoon.”

        I lived in the DC area for 11 years and no one there called it “Washington.” “Washington” always referred to the state or the President. “DC” was far too convenient a term to go looking for another… or “the district” was used by reporters.

    Dear Marina,
    How nice to see you in another video. You’ve been busy with a trip to New York and a vacation at Yellowstone Park. BTW, were there any yellow stones, there? Well, I hadn’t seen you since your March 19th video on “hysterical.” Before that was the February 28th video on “brand new.” These long intervals between videos are hard for me to endure because I like to see you.
    So a “hoon” is someone who drives badly or carelessly. I guess it could also be a verb if “to hoon” means to drive badly. With gasoline now at $4.15 per gallon, here, I just don’t drive very much. It would cost over $100 in gasoline for me to drive to Los Angeles and back. Someday, I’d like to drive down and treat you to a nice meal. If I can afford all that gasoline, then I’d be able to afford the bill at a nice restaurant!
