  1. Our cat "Lucky" is a therapy cat in the nursing home where I work. He has made a huge difference in several lives in his years of "working". He also knows that some people just don't like kitties, and he avoids them. He is a tuxedo cat and very intelligent. Walks on a leash, loves to ride in the car, follows commands like sit, stay and play dead and the all important "lick", which the vet is totally in awe of. As a youngster (he was a cat that was dumped) he loved to bite and nibble on people and this can't be permitted on the fragile skin of the elderly. So, I just worked with him until he understood the word "lick" and whenever he starts acting like he's gonna gnaw on someone, we just say, "lick". Pets are indeed wonderful. I love dogs too, although with our lifestyle a cat just fits us better. --Julie
  2. 1) Currently looking for an iPod as we've decided this is the coming thing 2) Have oodles of cassettes. Listened to one just a couple of days ago, but generally, they are just gathering dust. Incidentally, my brother installed a Craig AM/FM Stereo tape deck into my Camaro back in 1976. People thought he was nuts to put that thing in the car! "Why don't you just get an 8-track??" My bro laughed them off and told them that 8 tracks were illogical! 3) I have all of my albums and we hooked up a Curtis Mathis turntable to our home entertainment center (although, I have yet to put an LP on for a spin!) When hubby went to prison, he put all of his stereo stuff in storage and it's in really good shape! --Julie
  3. Thanks for the "input"!! I appreciate it! I'm thinking Nano at this time. Maybe when we've had a chance to save some cash, we can get the new iPod so we'll each have one (me getting the bigger, better one of course--I'm the one with the big music library!) Ya, it's too late to get anything different. The dealer drove to Wisconsin today to pick it up for us, but the car has a single CD player and MP3 player plus the ipod jack right on the front of the radio (2006 Impala LTZ)----sure will be a step up from that 1969 diesel tractor/trailer we have with a doghouse and the rust flakes...... I did download some music from the iTunes store last year for our wedding reception, so will have to go back and check the site out. I really appreciate the advice! I knew you guys would be informed! Can't wait!! --Julie
  4. A warm and hearty welcome to you, Steve K! I'm always jealous of anyone who has had the honor and priviledge of hearing these guys play! --Julie
  5. We're getting a new car and decided to NOT get the 6-disc CD thingy as it has a front jack and a holder for an iPod. So, what do I get? I don't want to sound like an idiot, but do iPod's have MP3's on 'em, or is it another format? (don't have time to Google and read and research--coming right to you guys that are in the know). I'm going to assume that the imput jack on the car will work with things other than iPods, am I correct?? Are there other brands of these things--some kind of generic?? Do I really want the shuffle?? Do you have any choices on what pops up with that thing? I mean, can you override it. Say, if I'm only in the mood to listen to Christian music and not rock and roll?? Any help/advice would be great. We're getting the car tomorrow! Thanks bunches! --Julie

    Suggestion

    Gord!!! Hey everybody!! Look up 4 posts! It's our guy Gord!!! Welcome back!!!! --Julie
  7. Very cool gift indeed! I'm sure it will be cherished! --Julie
  8. Diet Lime Coke or Diet Cherry Coke. I do have a fondness for Diet Vanilla Pepsi, too. --Julie
  9. Too bad you didn't like the book, Don! Lol!
  10. My cat goes into a hypnotic trance whenever I play "I Was Born to Love You" or "Wild, Wild Heart". There is purring and kneading and he gets this weird look on his face! --Julie
  11. Count me in as a Jane Olivor fan. I have several of her albums and CD's. Discovered her in college. I want to say that she fell out of the music biz after her husband was diagnosed with some dibilitating disease and she was busy caring for him. She does a great version of "The Greatest Love of All". Ahhhhh....now I need to go and dig it out! --Julie

    Orson

    "Orson" is a small town (population 5!) about 2 miles from my mom & dad's place! Sorry, off-topic, but when I saw "Orson" I just had to click on the thread to see if it was about my Orson! --Julie
  16. JohnO--that plane crash occured near Clear Lake, Iowa which is just a hop, skip and a jump from me. --Julie
  17. I agree with Matt--the little horse pulling the Bud wagon really tugged at my heart. And I gotta say, the big production number with all of the dancers dressed like lettuce, tomatoes, onions, etc. and diving onto the hamburger patty by Burger King was pretty entertaining. --Julie
  18. Oh Darlene! That just makes me giggle! --Julie
  19. Heh heh Marlene! I can just see me in my 1969 International single axle deisel semi-truck, whipping along behind you up Monarch Pass at a crisp 10 mph, rust flaking off as I get into the higher elevations! Oh, and by the way folks, we actually do have this truck--her name is "Violet". She's a tempermental sweetheart. --Julie
  20. I'm a 1969 International diesel single-axle tractor semi with a few rust spots. "You're clumsy, old-fashioned and in the dark ages. You're way too practical and boring for your own good. You must live in Iowa." That really sucks, Keith!
  21. "Tommy T" --I was a bit taken aback when you posted something kinda funny about my wedding a few months back, but I laughed it off. Then you sent me the nicest PM congratulating me and my new hubby. I knew right then that I didn't have to worry about you. I love this board and the folks here. It's where I go to unwind at the end of the day. I try not to get too worked up about stuff that's posted. If I get bored with a thread or find it in some way getting a negative slant to it, I just move on to the next one. Anyway, it's a great place here and we all have a common love for this awesome music. Peace and Blessings, --Julie
  22. I want to say that both songs were written with those movies in mind but the movie folks went another route. Too bad. I adore, "Heaven Can Wait" and I really can get into the live version of "Marathon Man". It really rocks! --Julie
  23. I was hoping to be at the January B-Day chat--it would have been my first, but, my dad has been hospitalized this week and I want to go home and see him. We'll be on the road during the chat. Maybe next month! Save a dance for me, Sterling! --Julie

    Thank You

    Continuing to keep you and your family in our prayers, Ted. May warm and wonderful memories of happier times sustain you and flood over you. May God hold you in the palm of His hand. Blessings always, --Julie
