Welllll, it's kinda "ice", but Gunk seemed more truthful...
Gunk is perfect!

I logged a lot of winter miles commuting in Nebraska, and that stuff sure does build up (I have had 'flags' of the stuff on my CB antenna like crazy).
I've had ice buildup so heavy it broke the antennas.

I have got to get a life...Seriously!

My inbox had a note from Adam indicating that I made the grade yesterday to qualify for a raffle ticket for the end-of-month drawing. This is not good.

What about Jorja Fox?

Would she feel like we do about Hocir?
QuoteOriginally posted by stevebrot Quote
She would be most interested and would want to investigate the Hocir collection at my house...

Steve

(...Oh, please! Oh, please!)
I think I know how we feel about Hocir.

How do we feel about Jorja Fox?

Ok, I'd say that is as close to old George as we can get

(And I'm not going to discuss religion or anything, but they were waaay ahead of the times in their egalitarian views. We've still not caught up. Far from it.)
Ideologically, I'm much closer to old George than modern Quakers... they've forgotten an awful lot of what old George taught.

Thank you!
I used to drive between Omaha and Lincoln (112 miles roundtrip), in my little Pontiac Sunfire. Both the car's antenna and the CB (a 36" Uglystik) would get so loaded up with ice that they'd be wobbling back and forth in the airstream with a good 6-8 inches of travel at the tip. I really wondered at times if it was going to break the mounts... Then I got a job change that allows me to telecommute from home when road conditions are that bad, much easier on the nerves. And, no longer in Nebraska!

If we told you, we would have had to kill you.
It was for your own good.
And Jorja Fox is hot, but Tess almost caught me looking her up... you guys are getting me in trouble...

Yes, Jorja Fox has the beauty that does not need 4 pounds of makeup applied with a spatula.

Natural beauty.

My kinda girl.

Like Mrs. Racer. 2.0

And Mrs. Racer 1.0.

Yes, I've been married, divorced, then hitched again. This time I think its gonna stick. Mrs. Racer 1.0 lasted 3.5 years before it was time for an upgrade. Mrs. Racer 2.0 has been going strong for over 16.5 years now.

Life is good.

Without a K3.

So.

Is it, "Final Frontier"?

Or maybe, "Fantastic Four"?

How about, "Fidel Fancies a Festive Fedora, while Frolicking in a Field of Fiddlehead Ferns"?

Either way, Hocir will not grace my camera bag.
Merci Racer ... many thanks from your local French Frog ... Salut, J

Do not drink the Cool-Aid, aka herring juice. Made that mistake twice. First time the morning results were blamed on cheap beer and fast women. Second time, I knew it was the "Herring-Aid." because no fast women were involved. If Hocir could solve this tech problem, I would buy a K3 next week with my next gallon of pickled herring.

Still not getting a K-3!

I believe Jorja was forced, under duress, to pose with the Nxxxx hardware. She is a bright and capable woman who naturally would have used Pentax. What other explanation is possible?

Herring is an acquired taste. I was fed pickled herring at two years of age, shortly after graduating fromPablum to beef stew.
