So there we are alongside the road and slowly the driver gets out of the car . . . and you know how you just get s-o-o-o stressed and then life seems to get funny? Yeah, well, I could not believe it . . . he was a DWARF! He storms over to my truck, looks up at...

    Looking for a variety of new Forums

    NOT because of this one - this is fine, and I will be spending more time here from now on. But because I have to end a long-standing relationship, there are a couple of Forums that I will have to stop going to. I like discussing current events and politics, particularly Canadian vs American...

    Sorry if I'm kinda quiet for a while.

    My lower back is causing Hell with my sciatic nerves, down the front of my thighs - I can only sit in front of the computer for 15 or 20 minutes. The back problem is because of a large weight-gain (fluid retention) in my gut lately... gone from a 38" waist to over 50", since early Fall. To cap...

    How often does this site go down?
