[From The Editors Desk]
NOTE: Obesity in this country is definitely a problem. And those who have the problem, largely accept the fact that they are going to need help to overcome this health problem. They don't make excuses like rumdum below! If you have this health problem, I urge you to ask your doctor for help. He will steer you in the right direction.
**Here is an excellent website, with loads of information on this subject.

Well folks, here we go again! Someone let the VILLAGE IDIOT loose!
Another example of people not willing to take responsibility for their own actions!
This clown is makeing a mockery of obese folks. Here we have this poor dumb-ass(who wants to get rich so he can afford more food), who uses a shovel at the table, and can't figure out that he should stop eating after the first ton of food disappears! Now, he's smart enough to know not to eat dirt because it's not good for you(or doesn't taste good), but he's too stupid to figure out that if ya eat 100lbs. of fatty bacon at every meal, it just might have a bad effect on your health. Chances are, if ya went into his house, the cabinets would be full of Junk Food(pork rinds, chips, doritos, candy.....) This jerk has had every opportunity to investigate what foods are healthy or not, if he'd have quit eating long enough to read. There are only 2 reasons for his obesity: 1.) Medical problems that are a factor, 2.) a conveyor belt that continuously feeds his face! My guess is the latter! My friend, there is no word to describe the fact that you are just plain ignorant! My suggestion to this obese bigboy, is, that he sue every restaurant that he ate his way out of!! Oh yes, here's a better idea: like bartenders, waiters will now be required to know when a patron has had his/her limit, and refuse service - "NO, FATBOY, YOU"VE HAD ENOUGH FOOD"!! Christ, when will this stupidity ever stop......and now--'The Rest Of The Story'....

NY Man Sues, Claiming Fast Food Ruined His Health
Fri Jul 26, 5:43 PM ET
By Gunna Dickson

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A 5-foot-10-inch, 272-pound man has sued four major fast food chains, claiming their fare contributed to his obesity, heart disease and diabetes, his attorney said on Friday.

The class-action lawsuit, filed in the Bronx Supreme Court on July 24, is seeking undetermined compensatory damages against McDonald's, Wendy's, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Burger King on behalf of 56-year-old maintenance worker Caesar Barber and others.

The lawsuit, which estimates that millions of Americans could be included in the claim, also seeks to have the companies label individual products with fat, salt, cholesterol and other dietary content as well as to warn users of the health effects.

America~A Bygone Era: Famous Mountain Men
Click for Boncarbo, Colorado Forecast Jeremiah Johnson
Don't mess with this legendary mountain man, called "Liver Eater" by his peers. Jeremiah Johnson wages a one man vendetta against the Crows for killing his wife and their unborn child. Legend has it that he hunted the Indians down one by one, cut out their liver, and ate it raw! Johnson's exploits are legendary: he escaped as prisoner of the Blackfeet, served with a Colorado cavalry unit during the Civil War, and became the first marshall of Red Lodge, Montana in 1888.

Standing 6 feet, 6 inches tall, and weighing in at 240 pounds, John Johnston was an impressive figure indeed. He lived and thrived in the western mountainous region of the United States and survived the end of the Mountain Man era of our countrys settlement to become both fact and legend in his own time. He was a feared Mountain Man, accomplished fur-trapper, steamboat woodhawk who supplied cord wood for money, he started and ended his own personal war against an entire tribe of Indians, fought in the Civil War, and acted as both Deputy Sheriff and Town Marshall before he died of old age (70+ years) in 1900.

In the fall of 1843, the steamboat Thames from St. Louis transported the young trapper to the St. Joseph eddy in the Blacksnake Hills of Wyoming. Three years later, he was well known to the steamboat captains as a reliable supplier of wood for their boilers. At this time, the Crazy Woman saga depicted in the movie, Jeremiah Johnson, actually took place as Jane Morgans family was massacred by Indians in the Musselshell River basin of the Rockies. Johnston tracked down and killed all of her assailants.

In 1847, Johnstons pregnant Flathead Indian wife was killed and scalped by a raiding party of Crow Indians while he was away hunting. Barely a year later, his infamous war against the whole tribe of Crows was well known and established. He would eat the liver of his slain enemies as a sign that he had conquered yet another killer of his young Indian squaw. This gruesome practice earned him the title of Dapiek Absaroka (Crow Killer) by the Indians, and, more generally, Liver-Eating Johnston. For more than twenty years he maintained a solitary, wary, daily mortal battle with the Crows. In 1869 he made a peace with them.

On February 24, 1864, he joined the Union army in St. Louis and rapidly rose in the ranks from horseman to sharpshooter. Johnston was honorably discharged on September 23, 1865. Thirteen years later, in 1878, Bear Claws Chris Lapp, one of his compatriots, was found murdered in his cabin. Johnston and Del Gue killed all of the Indians involved and the traders who sold them their rifles and ammunition! By the time 1887 came to pass, Johnston was in his sixties but he was still feared, respected, and dominant. He had already served as the Deputy Sheriff of Leadville (Billings), Colorado, and he was elected Town Marshall of Red Lodge, Montana in 1888. The brutally vigorous existence that he led eventually caught up with Johnston. In 1895, his health began to fail him rapidly. He was forced to enter the Veterans Administration Hospital in Los Angeles in the last month of 1899. Exactly month later, on January 21, 1900, he died.

In 1972, Warner Brothers released the motion picture, Jeremiah Johnson, starring Robert Redford as the grizzled Mountain Man. His portrayal of Johnstons life was much more tame than the reality. The movie was based on two books about Johnston. Mountain Man, by Vardis Fisher, is extremely romantic and paints the trapper as a poetry-loving, peaceful hunter. Crow Killer, by Raymond W. Thorp and Robert Bunker, is a more factual, documentary-styled novel. After reading the second novel, Tri Robinson, a 7th grade teacher from Lancaster, California, worked with his students to have the body of Johnston reburied in Bob Edgars recreated western town, Old Trail Town, in Cody Wyoming on June 8, 1974. The old Mountain Mans bones now rest near the face of one of the cliffs that he visited in his later years. (Bio by Bob Dollenmayer)

Outdoor Tip: Food Safety Tip
When cooking away from home, using two coolers can help insure safe food. Load one cooler with the items you will be accessing frequently (soft drinks, beer, water, etc.).

This watch gives you all the basics without have to worry about electronic failures in harsh conditions.

Nice to see someone not worried about the Politcally Correct world!!
Said like ONLY a Marine could say it !
Speech by former ACC Commander, Gen Hawley:

"Since the attack, I have seen, heard, and read thoughts of such surpassing stupidity that they must be addressed. You've heard them too. Here they are:"

1) "We're not good, they're not evil, everything is relative." Listen carefully: We're good, they're evil, nothing is relative. Say it with me now and free yourselves. You see, folks, saying "We're good" doesn't mean,"We're perfect." Okay? The only perfect being is the bearded guy on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The plain fact is that our country has, with all our mistakes and blunders, always been and always will be, the greatest beacon of freedom, charity, opportunity, and affection in history.

If you need proof, open all the borders on Earth and see what happens. In about half a day, the entire world would be a ghost town, and the United States would look like one giant line to see "The Producers."

2) "Violence only leads to more violence." This one is so stupid you usually have to be the president of an Ivy League University to say it. Here's the truth, which you know in your heads and hearts already: Ineffective, unfocused violence leads to more violence. Limp, panicky, half-measures lead to more violence. However, complete, fully-thought-through, professional, well-executed violence never leads to more violence because, you see, afterwards, the other guys are all dead. That's right, dead. Not "on trial," not "reeducated," not "nurtured back into the bosom of love." Dead. D-E-Well, you get the idea.

3) "The CIA and the rest of our intelligence community has failed us." For 25 years we have chained our spies like dogs to a stake in the ground, and now that the house has been robbed, we yell at them for not protecting us. Starting in the late seventies, under Carter appointee Stansfield Turner, the giant brains who get these giant ideas decided that the best way to gather international intelligence was to use spy satellites. "After all," they reasoned, "you can see a license plate from 200 miles away." This is very helpful if you've been attacked by a license plate. Unfortunately, we were attacked by humans. Finding humans is not possible with satellites. You have to use other humans. When we bought all our satellites, we fired all our humans, and here's the really stupid part. It takes years, decades to infiltrate new humans into the worst places of the world. You can't just have a guy who looks like Gary Busey in a Spring Break '93 sweatshirt plop himself down in a coffee shop in Kabul and say "Hi ya, boys. Gee, I sure would like to meet that bin Laden fella." Well, you can, but all you'd be doing is giving the bad guys a story they'll be telling for years.

4) "These people are poor and helpless, and that's why they're angry at us." Uh-huh, and Jeffrey Dahmer's frozen head collection was just a desperate cry for help. The terrorists and their backers are richer than Elton John and, ironically, a good deal less annoying. The poor helpless people, you see, are the villagers they tortured and murdered to stay in power. Mohamed Atta, one of the evil scumbags who steered those planes into the killing grounds (I'm sorry, one of the "alleged hijackers," according to CNN. They stopped using the word "terrorist," you know), is the son of a Cairo surgeon. But you knew this, too. In the sixties and seventies, all the pinheads marching against the war were upper-middle-class college kids who grabbed any cause they could think of to get out of their final papers and spend more time drinking. At least, that was my excuse. It's the same today. Take the Anti-Global-Warm-ing (or is it World Trade? Oh-who-knows-what-the-hell-they-want demonstrators). They all charged their black outfits and plane tickets on dad's credit card(!) before driving to the airport in their SUV's.

5) "Any profiling is racial profiling." Who's killing us here, the Norwegians? Just days after the attack, the New York Times had an article saying dozens of extended members of the gazillionaire bin Laden family living in America were afraid of reprisals and left in a huff, never to return to studying at Harvard and using too much Drakkar. I'm crushed. I think we're all crushed. Please come back. With a cherry on top? Why don't they just change their names, anyway? It's happened in the past. Think about it. How many Adolfs do you run into these days? Shortly after that, I remember watching TV with my jaw on the floor as a government official actually said, "That little old grandmother from Sioux City could be carrying something." Okay, how about this: No, she couldn't It would never be the grandmother from Sioux City. Is it even possible? What are the odds?

Winning a hundred Powerball Lotteries in a row? A thousand? A million? And now a Secret Service guy has been tossed off a plane and we're all supposed to cry about it because he's an Arab? Didn't it have the tiniest bit to do with the fact that he filled out his forms incorrectly three times? And then left an Arab history book on his seat as he strolled off the plane? And came back? Armed? Let's please all stop singing "We Are the World" for a minute and think practically! I don't want to be sitting on the floor in the back of a plane four seconds away from hitting Mt. Rushmore and turn, grinning, to the guy next to me to say, "Well, at least we didn't offend them."

SO HERE'S what I resolve for the New Year: Never to forget our murdered brothers and sisters. Never to let the "relativists" get away with their immoral thinking. After all, no matter what your daughter's political science professor says, we didn't start this. Have you seen that bumper sticker that says, "No More Hiroshimas"? I wish I had one that says. "You First. No More Pearl Harbors."

Semper Fi!
**Editors Comment: Amen to that and about time it was said! Thanks for the article John!

Western Canvas
Authentic Handmade Tipis patterned after original Native American designs. Easy! Portable! and Fun! From 9 foot children's play tipis to 30 foot ceremonial sizes...
Did you know? The word tipi comes from the Lakota (Sioux) language and is formed from the roots "Ti" (inhabit or dwell) and "Pi" (a place). In other words, a place to live.
While tipis exhibit a pictorial history of Plains Indian life and represent a symbol of the American West, they remain contemporary. Western Canvas blends the popular theme of Western Design with authentic reproduction to create livable and instructional tipis, equally at home in suburban backyards and world renowned museum collections.

Western Canvas takes pride in the authenticity of their tipis, which are patterned after original Native American designs. Their tipi construction methods are researched through conventional sources, such as libraries and other resource centers. They also contact tribal elders and other knowledgeable Native Americans when necessary, to acquire the additional knowledge and guidance they demand, to replicate their tipis as precisely as possible. In striving to preserve the historical aspect of the tipi art of the West, they feature on their tipis the painting talents of Blackfeet elder, George Kicking Woman and Al Chandler, a Gros Ventre Native American, both from Montana.

"Bless My Computer......"
Dear Lord:

Every single evening
As I'm lying here in bed
This tiny little prayer
Keeps running through my head.
God bless my mom and dad,
And other family.
Keep them warm and safe from harm
For they're so close to me!

And God, there more thing
I wish that you would do.
Hope you don't mind me asking,
But bless my computer too.

Now I know that it's not normal
To bless a mother board,
But listen just a second
While I explain it to You, 'Lord'.

You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds & ends
Inside those small compartments
Rest so many of my FRIENDS.

I know so much about them
By the kindness that they give
And this little scrap of metal
Takes where they live!

By faith is how I know them
Much the same as You
We share in what LIFE brings us
And from that...our friendship grew.

Please, take an extra minute
From Your Duties up above
To bless those in my Address Book
That's filled with so much love!

Where ever else this prayer may reach
To each and every friend,
BLESS each E-mail Inbox
And the person who hits "Send."

When You update Your Heavenly List
On Your Own CD-Rom
Remember each who've said this prayer
That's SENT UP to

From the Editor: Thanks Kimmy, that was a beuatiful Prayer...Love, Dad.


GUYS: As you mature, you learn:

  • That we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.
  • That regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades, and there had better be a lot of money to take its place.
  • That you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!....and/or Parole Officer

GALS: Welcome To Sunburn Season
It's time to get up-to-date on the latest sun protection information. Here are a few pointers from the American Academy of Pediatrics:
  • Babies should be kept out of direct sunlight because their skin is thinner and burns more easily. Avoid using sunscreen on children under six months old, since the effects of sunscreen are as yet unknown.
  • For children older than six months, use sunscreen made for children, but keep exposure to the sun minimal.
  • For kids more than a year old, choose waterproof sunscreen. Reapply every two hours if your child is playing in water.
  • Once you have a sunburn, avoid the sun completely until the burn is healed.

NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!
    Things You Should Know About Women 101

WINDOWS TIP: Inbox Taking Space
A reader writes: "I have 41 MB of space taken up in my inbox in Netscape 4.7x and I can't find out how to get rid of it. When I delete emails, I use the ALT-delete method so that the emails do not go into trash. I have searched all the boxes in my email and can't find any messages that would be taking up this amount of space. Any suggestions on how to find and delete this information that is taking up space on my hard drive?"

You can delete all files in your mail folder with the extension SNM. Close all Netscape windows first, then use Windows Explorer to delete these files. They will automatically be rebuilt by Netscape when you restart the program, this time without any extra stuff that only takes up valuable space.

Transferring Digital Camera Files:
If your digital camera has a USB connector, and most of the newer ones do, you can use a freeware program called TIM, or USB Digital Camera Transfer Assistant, to transfer your picture files from the camera to your computer. TIM will transfer files to a specific folder, display a contact sheet of your pictures, rotate, resize and crop pictures, and convert the picture formats.

TIP: Corn Tip
Following a few simple procedures can help ensure success when preparing corn on the cob. Make sure the water is at a full boil before adding the corn. Always shuck the ears right before cooking. Don't overcook the corn (it tends to get tough). For the best flavor, serve immediately after boiling.
