    Very funny, Rob....My 13 year old, who is a very big star trek fan came home from school with that one... :lol: I was raised on star trek and passed on the love for it to most of the kids...

    I also like the Take the lupus but leave the cannolli...what about making Lupus an offer it can't refuse...

    Saysusie...I also read all of the Lord of the Rings books starting with the Hobbitt when was still in high school...we are very big LOTR fans here...

    Personally I think that the devil calls lupus "my precious"

    You may be right, sick n tired; and it might be that, in our flares, we are crawling around the deep dark of Mordor...but during our remissions, we are strolling along the the beauty that is Rivendale! What a nice thought, at least :lol:

    Peace and Blessings

    Oh**** I want to see the beauty of Rivendale....sigh...right now it is too deep and dark in this pit and it is hard to imagine anything but pain..

    Of course...imagination is all I have and it does suffice at times to just dream of a better time.

    Question

    Okay, I had to search around and drag this one out of the archives....

    But I need to know 3 things, Rob....

    Your current signature line....it's by Don Henley....correct? When did he say that, or where's the quote from? Have you, perhaps, been pondering 'anger' and where it gets us? I sure have.

    And how about the one from David Gilmour....words from a song, which I recognize, but can't think of the song. I've been searching through my Pink Floyd and David Gilmour stuff, but can't put my finger on it.

    And then the sig line you had that read something like, 'Slap! So are ya just gonna stand there and take that Lupus, or ya gonna fight back?' It has been driving me crazy. Stubborn me...I didn't want to ask...I've just been trying to figure it out on my own. But I just cannot come up with where I heard it.

    It's a line from a movie...correct?

    Can you shed some light? ...please?

    Lori

    Hey there,

    The signature that I'm using right now is from the Don Henley solo album called "Inside Job". The song is called "My Thanksgiving" and it's one of my favorites. And yes, I've been pondering my anger quite a bit lately. I don't like it.

    The David Gilmour one was from the Pink Floyd album "A Momentary Lapse of reason", and the song is "On the Turning Away".

    The you gonna do somethin' line is from the movie Tombstone. Kurt Russell play Wyatt Earp, and he slaps Billy Bob Thornton a couple times and asks him if he's going to do something, or just stand there and bleed.

    Here's the full lyrics of the Don Henley song-My Thanksgiving


    Alot of things have happened, since the last time we spoke
    Some of them were funny, some of 'em ain't no joke
    And I trust you will forgive me, if I lay it on the line
    I always thought you were a friend of mine

    Sometimes I think about you
    I wonder how you're doing now, and what you're going through
    Cause the last time I saw you, we were playing with fire
    We were loaded with passion, and a burning desire
    For every breath, for every day of living
    And this is my Thanksgiving

    Now the trouble with you and me my friend
    Is the trouble with this nation
    Too many blessings, too little appreciation
    And I know that kind of notion-well, it just ain't cool
    So send me back to Sunday school
    Because I'm tired of waiting for reason, to arrive
    It's too long we've been living, these unexamined lives

    I've got great expectations, I've got family and friends
    I've got satisfying work, I've got a back that bends
    For every breath, for every day of living
    This is my Thanksgiving

    Have you noticed that an angry man, can only get so far
    Until he reconciles the way he thinks things ought to be
    With the way things are

    Here in this fragmented world, I still believe
    In learning how to give love, and how to recieve it
    And I would not be among those who abuse this priviledge
    Sometimes you get the best light from a burning bridge

    And I don't mind saying that, I still love it all
    I wallowed in the springtime, now I'm welcoming the fall

    For every moment of joy, every hour of fear
    For every winding road, that brought me here
    For every breath, for every day of living
    This is my Thanksgiving

    For everyone who helped me start
    And for everything that broke my heart
    For every breath, for every day of living
    This is my Thanksgiving

    Thanks Rob...for shedding some light.

    And that 'My Thanksgiving' song is absolutely beautiful...I just went on Rhapsody and listened. I'm putting that one on my MP3 player tonight.

    Sometimes I wonder, how do I miss these songs? There are just so many good ones out there. It's hard to keep up.

    And so many groups where the members went off and did things on their own for some years. I still scramble around trying to not miss anything good. And so many great songs came out of the Eagles going their own ways for awhile. I love the comment from their 'When Hell Freezes Over' tour....when, I think it's Glenn Frey says 'And just for the record, we never broke up, we just took a really long vacation'.

    Thanks for turning me on to a great new song.

    Lori

    Rob, that's so funny. That a Good one!!!
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

    Take Care,
