Lots of memories this year
I was taking care of my elderly parents for the past 3 years. They lived on the other side of the Cascade Mountains from me and I was finding it exhausting driving 120 miles on almost a weekly basis to help them deal with health care issues. I was also working full time and going through chemotherapy. Finally 3 years ago my wife and I bought them a nice house here and moved them over.

Mom died at the end of March this year and Dad died at the beginning of August.

We have been sorting through their things and also lots of things that were my granparent's. I am finding all kinds of things that trigger great memories.

The best memory of all was of growing up in a loving, close family!

Re: Lots of memories this year
Sorry to hear about your loss but I'm glad you have loads of fond memories.

All the best.


The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

Does a query (thats a question Stile) that uses this physical reality, to look for an answer to its existence and properties become theoretical, considering its deductive conclusions are based against objective verifiable realities.

Re: Lots of memories this year
Thanks, Lari.

I will miss them. They both lived long, full lives, so I celebrate that rather than mourn their passing.....lives well lived.

Re: From Rags to Riches
Your narrative gets progressively less and less plausible until eventually you reach the point where you claim to be "the funniest poster ever". I think we all know that that is in fact me.

I don't know what you mean, those were all real events.

you claim to be "the funniest poster ever". I think we all know that that is in fact me.

Claim? Hey, the numbers don't lie Mr. 9.2

I won't argue with the fans. Take it up with Percy, it's he awards it to me.

Re: From Rags to Riches
You do know the entire narrative is that of the Notorious B.I.G don't you?

Lookup the Early Life section of his wiki page.......

No. No I don't. Not a clue. You would scarcely believe how very very very little I know about the biographies of rap stars. "The Notorious B.I.G." is right up at the top of my list of people I don't know anything about and couldn't care less.

Re: From Rags to Riches
That's what I figured. Which is why I thought I'd let you in on the parody.

Now you know.

Well each to their own. I'm not a massive fan of biographies of rap stars or other modern celebs either. But as these sorts of people go his is possibly more interesting than many.
