Quote of the Day   

 

"Whatever  you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you  a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her  groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her  heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit."

Dean and other military members. Thank you for serving our Country. I talked to my son today, he and his wife are in the same fleet, but could not tell me when they will be home. God Bless Real Americans who love our Country.    Craig

I am on Pacific Standard Time. In three hours, when my clock hits midnight, it's July 6th, and I turn 31.

I'm grateful for having a very full life, and for having been supported in what I have been able to do in my 31 years.
I'm grateful or having survived my more self-destructive years, and enjoying the new peace in my life.
I'm grateful for my wife and son (and daughter on the way).
I'm grateful for these boards, DBMA, and the great people I have met through the organization.

For Brothers like Crafty and the rest of the Tribe.  Unknown to all, is the life you save by beating this mutt with your sticks.  Much appreciation to Crafty and Cindy for your kindness.  The VL came just intime to kindle my spirit.  I only hope to be there for you if there is ever a need.

Semper Fidelis & Semper Fortis from Mount Soledad,
