I got one of those tv gizmos that you can sharpen credit cards to cut tomatoes. I've ruined all my credit cards.

Maybe that's not a bad thing.

Re: Apocalypse..any plans?

The World will end one day everything has a beginning and an ending. Did you all forget that point. It must have been worrying times for many. Seriously enough for people to change their lives and directions. "Financial meltdown" wasnt heard from a politician ever and now is common ground in Europe. Sorry to put a damper on your christmas spirits but like in any big blow you get a different expression.

A circle doesn't have and end or a start. , as to financial meltdowns. It's the richest economic area on the planet, don't beleive everything you read in the newspapers.

Re: Apocalypse..any plans?

I went with a global spiritual enlightening, when according to the Mayan calendar (which was 35 years off because it did not include leap years) was the beginning of the age of Aquarius....hmm, anyone remember that from about 35 years ago, at least the beginning of the age of Aquarius part.

After exhaustive research I have found out why the earth did not meet it's demise. Check this out... BAT BOY SAVED THE WORLD! | Weekly World News

Re: Apocalypse..any plans?

Okay, that was the last time I plan for the end of the world as we know it. The last, last time, I spent 3 months in Oz waiting for the end of the world and all that happened is I had a good time and met some really nice people and got to see the manta rays jumping out of the water.

Re: Apocalypse..any plans?

TropicalEscape is correct... Steppenwolf was gear-grinding rock'n roll ... Magic Carpet Ride, Snow Blind Friend, etc.

J. Kay is still doing concerts occasionally. I'd like to give some of Mr. Kay a listen right now. It'd be pretty good sailing music I'd think ...

Out on the deep blue sea I can play my stereo as loud as I want ... yippee

Of course, at my age I've got no choice ...
