    I was reading on the Internet this a.m. (Thanksgiving Day) at work. I happened to run across a post by Dave Simmons. He died a September a number of years back... And left a vacuum. Dave and I used to spar on the websites, sometimes seriously, but more often in fun as we were, at the...

    Help if possible???

    Thanks for taking time to read this post. Back in the mid-seventies, I lived in a little place called Finchingfield, England. In those days, unless you lived in London, there was a dearth of anything "Kung fu" in the hinterlands of the South. I ordered five 8mm films from, then, Sifu Carl...

    Mozilla Firefox assist needed...

    Please, all you pc guru types, don't laugh... I'm flummoxed. I have Firefox version 2 on my Gateway POS. When I try to use it to open any vid on youtube, all I get is a vast amount of code. I'm on a 56k modem, unfortunately. I am using Windows XP, and like I said, Firefox v. 2. I also am...

    Knife help

    I know I have put this in the Kenpo Forums instead of the knife forum, but have done so for a reason. Never having been a slave to the latest trends or fashions, nor one to simply jump on board a wave, because everyone else has, I finally obtained a Kerambit, Karambit, Korambit courtesy of...

    Where to get the best deal?

    I have been a regular pc user for years. Actually got to use some of the very first ones out. Now however, I am fed up to my elbows with Windows, PCs, and the whole sorry mess. I also, will go to my grave, ensuring that GATEWAY will never receive another penny of my hard earned money. With...

    What if ...

    I posted the following on Kenpo Talk, but then thought I might get more responses here, so here goes: I was kind of noodling around here on the forum when a question or two struck me that I would like to put out here. First off, in my little model of the world, I imagine that some, if not...

    Help needed with AOL IM

    After a year or two, I have finally gotten AOL on my machine, and it appears to be working. Unfortunately, my buddy list is very old, and I am sure it is incomplete. If any of my friends (old and-or new) would send me their buddy names via email: I would be most appreciative...

    Paddle Holster Help!???

    I have exhausted all the usual venues for insight and wisdom. I am looking for a paddle holster for my Model 19 Smith & Wesson .357 with a 2 1/2 in barrel. I recently ordered a fobus with the set up for a 4 inch barrel and suspect I can fill it with tissue so the gun sets right (tissue is a...

    Mrs. Parker

    sadly, passed away, probably about an hour or so ago. I received a message from Doc, and several others. I would think that after a respectable period that messages of condolence to Edmund would be most appropriate. Dan

    A question for Doc

    Hey Doc... Haven't commo'd in a long time. Life is good here on Farmer Mountain. LOL! Wonder if you would mind doing a summation on all the indexing and aligning that goes on for one to rise correctly to a standing position from a sitting position in a chair? Thanks, Dan

    Hi everyone, and thanks for enduring my endless questions and prattle. However, not to be deterred... I have a new one. Are the Robert W. Smith Books on "Hsing-i" and "Pa-kwa" good investments? Thanks... Dan

    Ask me about my Pi Chuan! And Thanks!

    Last night, after a number of false starts, I had my first lesson in XingYee. I am excited to be off on a new tangent and learning something that seems to be so much fun, healthy and useful. It sure is different after 30+ years of Kenpo. I have some "new" bad habits to overcome :erg...
