People get turned off forums all the time; case in point, several well known and respected senior forums members have stopped posting here in the past 15 months and well before this crap started and I am willing to bet that it will happen again with amazing regularity in the future.
I am not sure if I am a "senior" member but I do have a tendency to wonder around to non-carver related forums or get busy doing other thing. I dropped off the map a while back when I built my house and another time when I was having kid problems. Fall and winter is a tough time for me because I hunt alot and don't have the time to keep up with the "Honey Do" lists and other things and post to the forum.

One thing for sure is I do wonder back here to get my Carver fix and will alway come back as long as I have access. 8)

My only regret is that RichP is so busy over on his forum that he rarely posts over here anymore.
Yep, busy inflating his ego. :roll:
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Interesting words coming from the one who posted about 'burning bridges' As i said in another post, I'm unfamiliar with the psychology of dealing with a 6 year old mentality.

You can (and will I'm sure) have the last word, unless it's time for your nap

You're the one who decided that you didn't like me posting vaild CONTRIBUTIONS on your site, so it is you that decided to burn the bridge.

Bottom line, you can't spin your way out of this, but feel free to keep digging as the entertainment value from watching you dance is off the charts!

Allright, you ornery sumbitches, I'm here to reckon with y'all.
There are many things that I admire about this site, there are some things that I disagree with.

Who asked me? Nobody.

I think that two sites are a good idea because you've got some variety.
Both James and Rich have put a lot of time, effort and money into their sites. I'd like to thank both of them for what is, let's face it, a thankless job.
Our common interests outweigh our differences.

Uncle Remus is a fictional character, the title character and fictional narrator of a collection of African American folktales adapted and compiled by Joel Chandler Harris, published in book form in 1881. A journalist in post-Reconstruction Atlanta, Georgia, Harris produced seven Uncle Remus books.

I believe of don't throw me in that briar patch fame. I'd have to look to see if Briar Rabbit and Uncle Remus are connected but I think so.
At any rate, Uncle Remus then showed up in a song off of Apostrophe' by Frank Zappa.
There was this group out in California in the 70s, The Lawn Jockey Liberation Front, who would steal the statues off of people's lawns. You know, the little black guys holding a lantern. Kind of silly.
I think FrankieD was a member...

Whoa, are we moving too slow?
Have you seen us, Uncle Remus?
We look pretty sharp in these clothes
(Yes, we do)
Unless we get sprayed with a hose
It ain't bad in the day
If they squirt it your way
'Cept in the wintah, when it's froze
And it's hard if it hits, on your nose
(On your nose)

Just keep your nose
To the grindstone they say
Will that redeem us, Uncle Reemus?
I can't wait til mah 'fro is full grown
I'll just throw away my doo-rag at home

I'll take a drive to
Beverly Hills
Just before dawn
And knock the little jockeys
Off the rich peoples lawn
And before they get up
I'll be gone
(I'll be gone)
Before they get up
I'll be knockin' the jockeys off the lawn
(Down in the dew)

Joel Chandler Harris wrote both, but the Br'er Rabbit stuff came mostly from old Cherokee tales.

Steve I asked your Mom not to mention that period in our relationship but you know women can't keep a secret.

God, I just hope she didn't tell you the rest.
