The best version of I Put a Spell on You by Ronnie Hawkins? Creedence Clearwater stands out, IMHO. Do you have a favorite?

I watched a bit of a Soundstage performance by Tom Petty&Co a while back. Anyone else think that his head is severely swollen? Not sure he could fit through an aircraft hangar door with that ego. Yeah I know, complain, complain.

Is the highest point in Florida really less than 400 ft above sea level?

It depends on your interpretation. I'm certain that the skyscrapers in Miami are taller than that, thus meaning the highest point in Florida is well above 400 feet. However, if you only include natural formations (no man-made structures) then 400 feet is probably about right.

But I hate south Florida with a passion. Too hot, too many irritating people, too many suicidal drivers, too many bahstages in general.

Though, I do have to visit my family that lives down there. So, to get over having been to Florida, I just come home, look at my case badge, fire up my computer.....and start blasting zombies from here to Johannesburg.

I don't hate southern Florida. I'm equal opportunity and can't stand the whole peninsula. Alligators? They're welcome to them. I must admit that the most beautiful sunrise I've ever seen was on Daytona Beach. Not worth going back to see if I can find another one like that.

Well, once you're south of Gainesville it all goes downhill. The panhandle's alright, as far as I'm concerned, though.

"Homeless veteran, will work for food" said the tattered cardboard sign held by the tattered yet still standing tall man at the traffic light. Do you ever give him money? I do. Am I foolish in doing this? Sometimes, yes. But the sign often tells a true story and I feel duty bound to alleviate the misery in at least a small way.

I wonder if you have to experience homelessness personally before you care? Been there, done that. It is a horrible situation. It's better not to sneer at "those" people. You can not be sure that it won't happen to you.

It was only for a short time, thank goodness. Yet something like that sticks with you. Moving on as per the officer's suggestion, how about those AOA case badges? They're still FREE, PM me today!

It's true that the word "free" in commercial usage has come to mean "with strings attached that make the statement a bald faced lie." However when we state it, we mean it. A fresh batch of our AOA case badges is cooling on the window sill, get your very own for FREE. Send me a Private Message, it's easy!

How do I know you haven't sold my address to Megajunk Mail Conglomerates Incorporated, LLC?

I dunno, I just don't trust free anymore.

AH-HA! I found where you get us! We have to send a SASE to you! While that means that you get nothing directly, I'm sure you've made a deal with USPS to get a little bit of cash from every letter sent your way!

And you sell us out to Megajunk Mail Conglomerates Incorporated, LLC!

I've figured it out, HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Maybe I could sign up for the Megajunk Mail Conglomerates Incorporated mailing list. I never get any email and it would be a nice change of pace.

In a previous life I thought having a couple of outstanding warrants would be a good idea, just in case the nights got too cold. The one night I called the cops on myself I was released 4 hours later at 1 AM.
