Guess i'm kinda a lurker too - I've been online 5 years now, surf a few boards & if i don't have anything to add or it's pretty much covered or i'm tired, don't look like i'm here. You know.

I'm not typing this to put anybody down - just my observations. I know posters are not paid entertainers with scripts and sponsors so it's not gonna be like tv. So nobody's paid or obligated to perform or respond. People here have every imaginable political & religious belief so it's not like the church lobby where we're "like-minded" or linked by denomination.
The challenge here is to express oneself in order to present an acceptible image - seems like we go through life painting little pictures of each other - and we're supposed to do it with only words. Well we're not all always eloquent enough to overcome the limitations of not being able to see our expressions, attire, carriage or body language so you had no idea that i'm hitch-hiking nekked right now. :) so to speak. see i just painted a picture. So it's often interesting, should never be taken seriously and can be surprising. Ya hafta broaden your mind a bit and expect to see thinngs like foreigners who think theirs is the greatest country in the world. (that's grade school propaganda in every couuntry - i'll bet even saddam's teachers said that) We still only see a very narrow (those who can afford the puter & hookup - and speak english) minority view of the world but it's broadening. As the weather improves people wander off for a season.
So here we are - with access to maybe not the world but a huge slice of ours. Despite all this, i've had an awful lotta fun on the net, learned alot and thanks everybody for the free help & chuckles. There - have i convinced you i'm not an 18-yr-old blonde beach bunny yet? :)

now that is pretty durn insightful. i think. i got to read it some more. so you ain't blond afterall? well i swear. i had always wondered hows come yer handle is deadcarp. you either must smell of fish or quit the sawdust business. just guessin on that though. i have learnt a good deal bout stuff people have needed help with here. the answers are coming in from lots of hard knocks time. best school i ever been in. most off for me here this place is like my porch, or my friends kitchen table, or the farm store, or our parts shop, you name it. a place where just about any subject might pop up and any person may have a take on it i never figured before. that means a hole lot to me. dont say it much though.

you sure you aint a blonde. thought all them folks up there in minnesota was toe heads.

Lots of us is blonde up here in MN but some of us is red-heads too! Anyway, both of you make good points. Lots of really good info here given with a lot of experience and sincerity. Most here are willing to help just about anyone out. I appreciate all the unselfishness shown here and hope I can offer my own help sometime.
