    Come in have a seat ,we can spill some ink together and blot it up.

    We can pick our super bowl team , Talk about the neat ad's for

    haft time. Have some coffee or tea depending which side of the pond

    you are on. Who does England pick for the super bowl or do you care.

    What do you think about the soccer player on 60 miniutes. When does

    England play his team. Do they take money from your paycheck in

    England and what for, what is your favorite snack with tea.

    You know its neat the way a englishman has to get a permit to hunt for

    artifacts along the muddy banks of the Thames river. They find things that

    go back centuries. Three or four hundred years before the U.S......how old

    are some of the north countrties. If you say old what come to mind, if you say

    special..what come to mind..how about new.....any country, whats new.

    I mainly drink coffee, but I have tea every now and then. I don't usually have a snack with it.
    I'm not much of a sports fan, but I believe soccer is quite popular, I don't think football is as popular.
    There's an old saying: "Americans think a hundred years is a long time, the English think a hundred miles is a long way"
    We've got Stonehenge which is around four or five thousand years old and plenty of smaller sites of similar ages. There's a lot of Roman sites which are only a couple of thousand years old. More recently there are plenty of castles and churches which are up to about a thousand years old.
    My nearest church was built in 1405 and there are probably thousands of churches of a similar age.

    @ Sparky ,If you read the full page story of this fisherman life,and how his family

    feels about the man and the sea. So why not go over board, go beneath the

    water and let the family observe a moment of silence thru Loosewire ,when I

    come up the tribute is complete. Never been done before ,what do you think.

    P.S. (I'm not sure I follow).....would you follow me into the ocean...with no

    protection...it has to look real as possible..and the feel of danger. Going under

    for 30 seconds would be dangerous, once out of sight they may not be able to find me.

    History Channel used to be cool from glimpses I saw back when it was new. "All Hitler, all the time". Now it is inundated with the same reality crap that distorted the Discovery channel. :(

    I haven't had cable TV for over 20 years (since college), and don't even own a TV set. I don't miss it at all. The continual advertisements breaking all the stories up was annoying. I know technology has advanced to be able to avoid commercials. I've found going outside now and again, or hanging around here and either helping people or learning a new trick is a better use of time.

    I believe too many people get caught up in discussing what might happen on the next episode of some program or other. Seems like living vicariously through TV characters rather than having a life, but, to each his own.

    Now, when it comes to the internet and the fact I sometimes interact with as many or more people online in any given day than I typically do in real life, that's probably not healthy, either. A happy middle needs to exist, but apparently, some of those TV shows are somehow addictive.

    You could start a lucrative business reenacting deaths of unfortunate people for their families. Drownings, car wrecks, cancer... I think you could make millions. It's brilliant!

    @ jaygatby ,You should read more of Loosewires post,you would learn something.

    I was in a hospital room where a priest was giving last rites ,there were three nuns

    present and other family members. The priest said it would be helpful to give book

    readings , the person had there eyes closed and after no one else picked up the

    book,I did. I started reading and kept reading,when I would say certain words I

    would get a squeeze from the person's hand I was reading to, so remember when

    someone need a good word,don't be afraid to pick up the book. You will learn more

    about your self.

    The couch potato moved all his stuff from one warehouse to another and still going

    strong after putting all you guys to bed. Are you going to move all that stuff your

    self, yes. I mentioned the glass radio at lunch,the water memorial at dinner,so my

    friend the couch is near by.....waiting for China or the North Sea to wake. I don't

    know how much sleep I need . I feel at home on the keyboard and Forum....just

    punching out the words as they flow. OH..I found my hockey skates and some of my

    gear. I have a disbeliever about my ability to ice skate..on my list of things to do.

    I found a home barber the other day....same price as going to shop, yes. I found

    a few nuggets and some fools gold. Every thing has changed,have no use for anything

    in storage ,only the sporting stuff..tennis racquet..hand ball glove..got rid of the T.V.'s

    just taking space. I have a lot of the old video's T.V. players, 4 at least..no time to

    replay all that life...so tomorrow I need to throw more stuff out..a new world.

    Some of those shows aren't half bad. Some chronicle people who have interesting jobs or unusual businesses. I was a fan of Ax-men when it first started. Most of those shows start out legitimate, and get more fake as they stay on too long.

    Aside from that, History still has quality programming. They ran a terrific mini-series on the Hatfileds and McCoys awhile back.

    Well Loosewire I have no idea what you're talking about most of the time, but I enjoy it, and will do just as you suggest: to read more of your threads.

    The idea of recreating the death of the boater for the family seems odd to me... what do you do after you resurface? Gasp for air as the family horrifically associates your gasping with their drowned loved one's last painful attempts for breath?

    And the fall... do you do it arms-a-flailin, or do you just kind of casually fall in, nonchalant?

    But your heart is in the right place, thanks Loosewire!
