There are linked thru the VA. in Atlanta GA.

WHY THEY can't be linked to other areas is for security & privates of Veterans.

Just an example if I knew your name an what V.A. you went to then I could look you up an find out all kinds of information about YOU. Now KimberChick I am just KIDDING WHEN I POST THE NEXT INFORMATION now let me think of something BAD (lol) you had sex with 100 guys an got all kinds of you can fill in the blanks.

Now if you didn't won't anyone to know I could say make things hard for you etc. Just Kidding .

This is why one V.A. can't get in to other V.A. systems only the Main V.A. system in Atlanta GA.

I hope I explained it right for you

Watching a football game and hearing the commentators talk through the entire freaking game, most of it a rambling mess.

I wish there was a Stadium option for sound. All you hear are the sounds of the stadium, just like you were there but with out any obnoxious drunks close by.

NBC tried that back in 1980 at the end of the season. Tech has advanced a little bit since then. I'd like to see them (or someone) try it again.

I wish they would have t.v.'s that auto muted on commercials. I freaking can't even listen to talk radio anymore because of all the stupid commercials. It drives me nuts.

I just wish there was a requirement that commercials be broadcast at the same volume level of the program they interrupt....

I read not too long ago that the CALM Act went into effect in December 2012 which was designed to regulate the volume of commercials. At least it was supposed to and allegedly worked for a brief time. However, it, like many other obscure laws probably wasn't enforced in a way that it hurt broadcasters and didn't do a lot of good. My wife and I talked about this very subject last night during one of the programs we were watching. Some of them are WAY louder....

The land use situation on the farm is starting to get ugly! My Bro in Law (with MS) lost his dairy farm. Bank put up everything for auction, sold woods to asshole neighbors, sold arable soil to local septic big wig who will now start cutting in human waste into the fields twice a year! Family retained buildings and 18 acres. Some asshole turned my sister and bro in law in to the county , now they have more buildings than allowed on 18 acres. My sister is beside herself with grief, and bro in law can't even bring himself to go outside in his motorized chair. If I don't end up in prison before all said and done, it will be a miracle!

Sounds like politics all the way. Sorry to hear of this sort of thing going on to your family.
I always worry about our neighbor to one side with her "horse farm". She is a devious little bitch. Several of us got together to get her to pay road fees, she's always looking to get away with murder. I told the Boss I think she is quiety putting more and more over the boundry line from her property to try and extend her reach. He needs to get a survey done.

^^^ I have my suspicions, of course. The neighbors whose bid won the woods were upset that they were not granted an easement through the property, so they have to access through their woods. The kid is an asshole and has been causing problems for years. The county has a contract with the septic guy, who is a mega millionaire and owns several farms. My feelings on him is he wishes to buy the remainder of the farm and use the dairy pit for his shit. Once he starts knifing in human manure into the fields , our property value will plummet. Anyhoo, these farmers can't stand each other , so there is no shortage of drama..... Property lines with certain neighbors , as your horse lady are always volatile. Adverse possession tried to come into play here a few years ago, fortunately, I had read up on it and had family nip it in the bud!

Moving Day.

Realizing just how out of shape you have become sitting behind a desk for two years, and the fact that going to therapy for over a year has not done crap for my lower back and SI Joint

That and her stuff is still not packed. We were given an extra month on this house that SHE bought and she is still not ready.

No wonder my BP is through the rough all the time.

Oh well, Texas A+M did win last night.

^ Moving days can be a real drag. I feel your pain as my SI joint has been giving me fits for the past year. It put me in bed a week ago. I am doing therapy on my own every morning with stretches and yoga. Hope you can get a handle on it!

I have read this several times an in the back of my brain somewhere their is some type of law under the disability act. about the banks or loan companies doing that. They could take a lot of his property but had to leave him the house an property that he lived on, until his death or something like that. Don't know if it is still in effect.

When people don't know what they're talking about, but proclaim that their occupation gives them some kind of superior knowledge.

Yes, HIPAA has a waiver that allows doctors to notify the police when they think a patient is a danger to themselves or others. 45CFR 164.512(j). Doctors want use to THINK they can't report, as it takes the onus off them when their patients turn out to be batshit crazy.

Fucking old ass pine trees that should have been removed over a year ago. Had a storm knock one over in my mom's complex and take out her rear window. Poor bastard parked next to her had is hood and roof creased and a windshield smashed. Hotter than hell cleaning that shit up.
