  1. I adore my JOB, and if it were the job alone, I'd never leave. I'd scale it back a bit, though. "Me" time or "family" time is so important.

    The BS surrounding the job ... that's another matter. There are days I long to do what Adelia described. 


    That was exactly how I felt. But it was a response to a situation that I have yet to regret.

  2. I decided to go back to school to do something different. I can really relate to no more meetings and reports. I used to do accounting and I am now studying graphic design. I did not actually retire. I just got fed up one day and walked out in the middle of the afternoon. (I left my lunch sitting on my desk) Shows you how much I enjoyed that job.

  3. There is so much I could say about the Christian clergy from their inception, as I do read quite a bit and I'm a regular student of history. I will stop here or we'll definitely need to move to "Cartoon World."  ::yikes::

    My point exactly, this is not the place.

  4. I haven't read one comment from those who follow the Jewish faith criticize or question the beliefs of their brethren. Christians are supposed to reflect all that is good and wonderful about Him, not criticize how each of us decides to celebrate that He rose from the dead or imply that one has not been taught the "correct" or "factual" truth. We are supposed to be brothers and sisters in the faith, we are His Church. Maybe we should learn the lessen that our Jewish brothers have shown.

  5. I wasn't going to like or comment to this thread in any way. I have been dismayed at some of the postings on this site in the not so distant past, especially responses to my own posts that were so far off from what I was trying to communicate, I am hesitant to express any personal opinions. Having said that, I am offended that she  has lumped all of us, including Eric, into a "Let's Bash Wally Group' based upon what someone told her. I hate it when someone tries to tell me what I am feeling or thinking; since I am the only person living inside me, I think I should be allowed to decide.

    I have never met any of the people involved including Eric, so I come to my conclusions based upon what I have read about the situation not what someone has told me (and I have not found all of my information here). Mrs. Bryson's posting just reinforces the conclusions I have already come to. I guess I am a "fanatic fan" (Kay Bryson, paragraph two, sentence one), just call me Fanny for short.

    I may be the only one here who is NOT a big fan of "American As Apple Pie." So to each his own, indeed!

    You are not alone, not one of my favorites either. As to the Benrie typo, don't you just hate it when your brain goes faster than your fingers? I do agree with Cayennegirl about having IWHIFYL on next release, that one I like alot.

    You go, Eric! I saw that "review" and decided NOT to post it, but your retort makes it worthy of inclusion here at EC.com

    Well Bernie, I was going to post the same thing but you beat me to it so I'll add "go get'm tiger" instead.

    And Cayennegirl's "kiss my fluffy white tail" was pretty cute. Anyone else wanting to "slap" him upside the head, I volunteer to hold him for you.

  8. Do not feel like the Lone Ranger James, I don't have any of the I-Stuff either. Like you I am just not sold that I need it bad enough to warrant the expense. I like to see where youtube can take me as well. Love that history stuff. And Redd, I like the music too. My favorite is still my kindle, it goes to bed with me, I can read without it bothering the hubby and I don't wake up in the morning sitting in a chair.

    I don't like the lyrics of "ATtN" either, but love the tune and arrangement. In any case, Raspberries catalogue is filled with songs that could be considered risque.

    I don't hate the song, just reminds me of some people I would rather not remember. Let's just say it is my least favorite song that happens to be on my favorite album. Risque? Isn't that why we like them? ooo baby ooo baby.

  10. I don't like ATTN for personal reasons, it reminds of some not so great times. I dated a guitar player all through high school, married him, had kids with him and the entire time there was always some little whore (tramp is too nice a word) all over him because he was with the band. If I had not known where his true feelings and interest were I probably would have killed someone.

  11. I still thrill to the beauty of sports..movies etc. on a nice flat screen T.V.

    After all I began life watching a black and white Zenith in my papp'y's log cabin in Illinois.

    I used to be the remote control.

  12. My mother always said that when the world ended I would have my nose in a book. I am an avid reader, so I think my favorite newfangled gadget would have to be my kindle. Mine is the stripped down version, reading material only but that is what I purchased it for, I can do the rest of the stuff on some other piece of electronics floating around my place.

  13. If we all 'double down', maybe it will become a gold record!  I always buy 2 of 'berries/Eric's albums anyway... 

    Well I know that I have done my fair share in the past and with Amazon correcting the problem I will have three Essential CD's without leaving my house. For a group that put out four albums, I have a whole box full of Raspberries CD's and several copies of some of the solos as well. When moving several years ago, someone stole my albums out of the truck, every last one and I had a lot of them (not all Raspberries).  I hope the jerk wad enjoyed them.

  14. adelia...that is definitely OK...I wouldn't dream of trying to change your Raspberries preference (as if I could)...I was just worried about offending anybody by saying anything negative about the Raspberries (the group, not the music). I love having these kinds of conversations, the give and take, the agreeing to disagree, etc...I love the music that I love and respect the music you love...I love what music means to each of us, even if it's different music for each of us. I also find it fascinating how we differ and I like talking about it. For example, James has always been one of my favorites here (don't get the big head, James...I have a lot of favorites)...anyway, James and I agree on a lot of things and on a lot of songs. We even agree that Boats Against The Current is our favorite EC song...we see eye to eye...we're in sync...we think alike...or so it seems. I once posted the video for Eddie Money's Take Me Home Tonight, which I love...James commented that he never liked that song...I was floored...how could we think alike and he not like that song??!! Well, he's posted (many, many times!...well, maybe twice) one of his favorite songs of all time...maybe even his favorite song...Natalie Merchant (Beloved Wife)...I've tried (many, many times...more than twice) to listen to it. I rarely can make it through the entire song. I'm sure the lyrics are touching but her voice really annoys me...not my cup of tea. But it doesn't bother James and me...I just find it fascinating that we can agree on so many things and hear them the same and then be complete opposites on other things. I also like a lot of Country Music and some people here hate Country. That blows my mind because most of us here like 70's Pop and a lot of today's Country sounds like 70's Pop (to me). But that's OK with me. As long as we're respectful to each other, that's all that matters. It hasn't always been like that here. I like it better now...and I like you...you sound fun with your Enterprise truck...

    I learned a long long time ago that the best way to get along with people is to accept the fact that people all have their own ideas, opinions, taste etc. and those things should be accepted and respected. It is what makes us the individuals that we are. I have many tastes in music that I listen to (including country) and there are some that I'd rather have my teeth pulled without novocaine than have to listen to.

  15. Duane, I don't want to quote your whole post and I appreciate the fact that you gave a detailed explanation as to why you feel the way that you do, some are very valid points. Doesn't change my preference of the Raspberries music over the solo music (which I also love, just not as much) and that is okay. We all have those things that just tickle our fancies. I also like movie soundtracks, not the "Dirty Dancing" type but the Jurassic Park and Star Trek type, nothing better than driving down the road and people thinking the Enterprise is about to pass them by. I play my truck stereo LOUD.
