Its amazing how many Christians profess to believing in the teachings of Jesus but when it comes to giving everything to the poor and following Him, they draw the line. Of course, maybe they think that it IS easy to "pass through the eye of a needle" and for a rich man to enter the Kingdom.

Mike, would you consider that hypocritical?

religion will teach you how to be humble and dead broke whilst taking a vow of poverty just to show how humble you are ....what a laugh that is ! people obviousely haven,t heard about seed time and harvest, 30/ 60/ 100 fold return that s what the good book teaches...doesn,t it say somewhere that christ came into the world so that we might have life and have it more abundantly? doesn,t sound like the boss upstairs wants everyone to be in the poor house....remember it s the LOVE of money is the root of all evil having cash is not.............

behind every successful man is a suprised mother-inlaw......

:D :p :D Talk about hijacking someones thread, it's a good thing that finding Tubesguy wasn't a life and death situation. I'll bet that only a couple of people have read the ENTIRE thread. :rolleyes:


Maybe they should create a special "political section", where everyone, including digital owners, can knock each others brains out without being scolded by rASter.:D


Hell, we can even argue about who has the prettiest flag. :p

Wow!

I jumped to the last page when I saw this thread. 300 posts! One question: Where does the stuff about me end, and this other stuff begin? :)

Just thought I'd take a moment to recap: Terry bought the G70 a long time ago. It had been advertised and sold as "pick up only" and Terry had, I believe, anticipated that it would be picked up by him on one of his tours of the midwest. He never got as far as Madison. He then thought a friend might be coming down to Georgia, and could stop and pick it up. Never happened. Finally, he asked if I could get it on a pallet and he could get it picked up at my house by a shipper. I said yes, and started thinking about ways to get a pallet. (The whole premise of "pick up only" is that I don't have, or have ready access to, a truck, van, etc.)

Then I went fishing. Two weeks in Canada, enjoying the outdoors, getting my hand in the business end of a muskie, etc. Come home to find emails from Terry, indicating some urgency, and got the thing packed up and shipped.

I haven't even glanced at the Forum for a couple of months, not since my theater/basement got flooded three different times by winter rain storms, and just logged on today. 300 posts! It's like I'm a gol darn celebrity. - Pat

Pat,

This thread got hyjacked by some folks who were not considerate of this thread and went way into outer space. I told them all I found you way back on page 2 or was it one??

So there really is a tubeguy. Well I'll be damned.

By all means go back and read all 300 posts. There's everything you want to know about tubes found in there. Frankly, I didn't know squat about tubes till I read it. But this thread has been so edifying I now consider myself a tube authority. Thinking of changing my name to Tubefella.

Yup, I went back to read, and it seemed to digress off topic right around page one, and went on from there. I see now how quickly celebrity fades ...

Bob, that's Tubesguy. Not Tubeguy. Please get it straight, or expect a scathing correction from this fellow known as Raster. Apparently a stickler for all that is noble and just.

My apologies to Mr. tubesguy, Joe.
And don't be too harsh on my buddy raster. He's just well shall we say maybe a little too big on rules sometimes.
Me on the other hand, I can leave or take rules.
And usually leave em.
