FRUSTRATION!!!!!....sort of.



Ever since I took up card throwing it has hurt.

It’s HORRIBLE!!!!!

Actually it’s not that bad…..But throwing those cards does make one certain muscle in your arm really hurt after a while, ask Snipermonkey if you don’t believe me.

Well I think that I’m going to have to blog less often because my parents think it’s a complete waste of time. I love blogging. It is like totally the bee’s knees, the cat’s paws, the banana’s pajamas, sorry…. I don’t know what that meant.

AHA!!! Now I remember…. About 10 years ago, there were commercials on the telly about these stuffed teddy bears…. Only instead of bears they were bananas in pajamas…. The theme song was really annoying. Does anyone remember seeing those?

Do you want to see a picture of the engine to my car? Good, because I was going to show it to you anyways. Here it is……

And here is the extremely cool back of my coveralls, they were my dad’s but he never uses them, so I got them…..

And here is a halo picture that I have no idea how it got on the computer…..

OOOOOMmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Here is the first card to be sacrificed to the card throwing ninja fire lords…..

This site is totally awesome. Believe me.

Cool site

He also needs a life......whatever.. I'm just jealous.

Here is bungie's 7 step plan to take over the world...

You know what? Today I was playing Thief, Deadly shadows, and it froze right when I was saving it, and then, after letting it sit for 15 minutes, I got fed up and turned it off. After I turned it back on every single one of my saved games were gone. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRG

I felt like smashing the xbox, but instead I played Halo and smashed in the head of every single grunt, jackel and elite I met. I didn’t see any hunters.

Oh well, thats life I guess, I think I’ll go now… so……Goodbyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!

1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl.

2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.

3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids. You may need to stand on the lid.

4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.

5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power-wash" and rinse".

6. Have someone open the front door of your home. Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door.

7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.

8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off.

9. Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean.

O Yeah!!!!!



Poor guy.

I am a senior citizen.

During the Clinton Administration I had an extremely good and well paying job.

I took numerous vacations and had several vacation homes.

Since President Bush took office, I have watched my entire life change for the worse.

I lost my job.

I lost my two sons in that terrible Iraqi War.

I lost my homes.

I lost my health insurance.

As a matter of fact I lost virtually everything and became homeless.

Adding insult to injury, when the authorities found me living like an animal, instead of helping me, they arrested me.

I will do anything that Senator Kerry wants to insure that a Democrat is back in the White House come next year.

Bush has to go.

letter is so funny!

This is an actual letter sent to a man named Ryan DeVries by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, State of Michigan.

Dear Mr. DeVries

It has come to the attention of the Department of Environmental Quality that there has been recent unauthorized activity on the above referenced parcel of property. You have been certified as the legal land owner and/or contractor who did the following unauthorized activity Construction and maintenance of two wood debris dams across the outlet stream of Spring Pond.

A permit must be issued prior to the start of this type of activity. A review of the Department's files shows that no permits have been issued. Therefore, the Department has determined that this activity is in violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, annotated.

The Department has been informed that one or both of the dams partially failed during a recent rain event, causing debris and flooding at downstream locations. We find that dams of this nature are inherently hazardous and cannot be permitted. The Department therefore orders you to cease and desist all activities at this location, and to restore the stream to a free-flow condition by removing all wood and brush forming the dams from the stream channel. All restoration work shall be completed no later than January 31, 2003.

Please notify this office when the restoration has been completed so that a follow-up site inspection may be scheduled by our staff.

Failure to comply with this request or any further unauthorized activity on the site may result in this case being referred for elevated enforcement action.

We anticipate and would appreciate your full cooperation in this matter.

Please feel free to contact me at this office if you have any questions.

Sincerely, David L. Price District Representative Land and Water Management Division

This is the actual response he sent back

Dear Mr. Price,
Re: DEQ File No. 97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20; Montcalm County.

Your certified letter dated 10/17/02 has been handed to me to respond to.

I am the legal landowner but not the Contractor at 2088 Dagget, Pierson, Michigan. A couple of beavers are in the (State unauthorized) process of constructing and maintaining two wood "debris" dams across the outlet stream of my Spring Pond.

While I did not pay for, authorize, nor supervise their dam project, I think they would be highly offended that you call their skilful use of natures building materials "debris." I would like to challenge your department to attempt to emulate their dam project any time and/or any place you choose.

I believe I can safely state there is no way you could ever match their dam skills, their dam resourcefulness, their dam ingenuity, their dam persistence, their dam determination and/or their dam work ethic.

As to your request, I do not think the beavers are aware that they must first fill out a dam permit prior to the start of this type of dam activity.

My first dam question to you is: (1) Are you trying to discriminate against my Spring Pond Beavers or (2) do you require all beavers throughout this State to conform to said dam request? If you are not discriminating against these particular beavers, through the Freedom of Information Act, I request completed copies of all those other applicable beaver dam permits that have been issued.

Perhaps we will see if there really is a dam violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, annotated.

I have several concerns. My first concern is -- aren't the beavers entitled to legal representation? The Spring Pond Beavers are financially destitute and are unable to pay for said representation, so the State will have to provide them with a dam lawyer.

The Department's dam concern that either one or both of the dams failed during a recent rain event causing flooding is proof that this is a natural occurrence, which the Department is required to protect.

In other words, we should leave the Spring Pond Beavers alone rather than harassing them and calling their dam names. If you want the stream 'restored" to a dam free-flow condition please contact the Beavers. But if you are going to arrest them, they obviously did not pay any attention to your dam letter they being unable to read English. In my humble opinion, the Spring Pond Beavers have a right to build their unauthorized dams as long as the sky is blue, the grass is green and water flows downstream.

They have more dam rights than I do to live and enjoy Spring Pond.

If the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection lives up to its name, it should protect the natural resources (Beavers) and the environment (Beavers' Dams).

So, as far as the beavers and I are concerned, this dam case can be referred for more elevated enforcement action right now.

Why wait until 1/31/2003? The Spring Pond Beavers may be under the dam ice then and there will be no way for you or your dam staff to contact/harass them then.

In conclusion, I would like to bring to your attention to a real environmental quality (health) problem in the area. It is the bears!

Bears are actually defecating in our woods. I definitely believe you should be persecuting the defecating bears and leave the beavers alone.

If you are going to investigate the beaver dam, watch your step! (The bears are not careful where they dump!)

Being unable to comply with your dam request, and being unable to contact you on your dam answering machine, I am sending this response to your dam office.

Long time no post

REALLY.......Sorry for not talking to you guys and girls for so long!

There...Got that off my chest. Now down to business.

I forgot to tell you that my mustang has a 302 engine so with the correct Flowmaster muffler(s) it will sound totally awesome and not be that bad on gas.


In other words my engine is going to be a good old gas guzzling Rumbler-----I have no idea how to spell that word.

Oh yes, to Marguerite, how do you pronounce your name ? (Mar-ger-eat)?

And to nate you are officially allowed to post on my blog.

I ate tuna fish and tomato sandwiches again!!!!:# (Those are teeth)

Here's some color.

In my house I do not rule- consequently school comes before blogging:(

The engine rebuilding is going great and I'm taking off the heads right now. They're going to be the most expensive parts of the engine to replace-about $200 each- after them off comes the oil pan and then the crankshaft. I'm just going to get rebuilt heads ( off the shelf).

I'm really sorry for even thinking about using this color.

Halloween is getting nearer and the pumpkins await ):=

I have to study for the PSAT so you might not hear from me for a while.

The men who really believe
in themselves are all in
Lunatic asylums.
G.K. Chesterton

That is a totally awesome quote.

We went to a wedding and saw a lot of really cool cars.

This one --a lotus elise

This one---a 200mph Bentley continental

and a Mercedes 300sl (gullwing) cant find a good picture

Here's another good quote:

But far more numerous was the herd of such
who think to little and talk to much.
John Dryden, Absalom and Achitophel.

Why does that remind me of Donut Munkey? :)

Here is an awesome blog by a guy doing real reporting from Iraq

Well I have to go and do something else-maybe some engine rebuilding, so---------------------

goodbye my peoplzzz.

I have a picture!!!!!
For all of you uneducated fans of me out there my picture is a McLaren F1 and it goes like allmost 400 mph........dont try driving one the fool!!!---just kidding I'm sure your a great driver but still please dont try driving one.

For all those who are still waitng for a report on my mustang sorry for not writing anything but it's going great! HERE WE GO!!!

My 1971 mustang is in many pieces.

Right now I've gutted the interior out and the engine came out this weekend so I'll be rebuilding the engine this winter.

The whole car is in great shape because it was driven in california for most of it's life and consequently there is very little rust, which is nice!, the only major rust is where the heater and A/C atatched to the air vent behind the dash. But that's nothing a little rust killer and bondo won't fix!!

The body though is interesting. The driverside fender has a few dents in it and the door on the same side has a major crease in it. Other than a few little dents here and there that side is fine.
The other side is pretty good and all there are are a couple small marks. Everything considered all I need to fix the body is BONDO!!!!...........wonderfull stuff.

I've coated the floorpan with rust stopper--I use POR 15-- I've heard it's good.

The trunk is coated with the same stuff and the interior is pretty much ready to be painted.

I'm going to paint the interior flat black and the exterior a really nice metallic blue.....please don't tell me what color to paint it because I'll ignore you.......donut guy can say whatever he wants because I ignore him anyway.

The car has about 65000 miles on it.

This restoration is going to cost a lot so don't expect it to go very fast........although donations wont be turned down!

Thats all I can think about right now so............goodby my peoplzzzz
