He hasn't posted since January 6th. Does anybody know if he's doing okay?

Dan lives in St. Louis, I believe. Hope he wasn't shot down in some gang war.

"When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace." -Jesus

Gen 49:24  But his [Joseph's] bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

1Sa 17:49  And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth. 

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. -Jesus

But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. -Jesus


"An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." -Col. Jeff Cooper

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin

Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain

Highly doubtful, he carries more firearms on his person then the Infantry owns

He got a job as a cook making $80 plates and probably working his rear off if I remember correctly.

Yeah but he came back on here and posted after a month or so, and then he just quit posting again. I'm just wondering if he's okay or if he's just so busy working that he doesn't have time

Last time he disappeared he just got busy with life. My guess is with the new chef position and this year will be the certification of his own pepper,Dan's wicked Ghost, that he is real busy and I hope that is the case.

he got disgusted with something and left. said so in his last post. you can look it up if you want to.

same here. I don't post anymore, because I got disgusted with something and left. you can figure it out yourself if you want to.

so you might be asking, you are posting that you don't post here anymore? wha??

I browse occasionally because I'm bored. other than that, I regard most of you about as much as I regard hippes, liberals, Westboro Baptist Church members, bucktooth Skoal-chewing farmers, etc which is not at all. not interested.

You make friends everywhere you go I bet.

“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return". -- Leonardo DaVinci 1452-1519

"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

got a new job making a lot more money, but it still goes away faster than it comes. working my ass off so much they gave me a raise after 2 months, offered me a supervisor job after 4 months, turned that down because I wanted to go for the goodies in another department. then I got nominated for employee of the month. but that entire department is going away (along with all the people) so existing stuff will expand into that work space with new hires, and they pretty much already told me they are going to make me a supervisor there. with another pay raise.

truck conked out, mechanic did a 1400$ valve replacement when I probably only needed a fuel injector, tires/heater core/oil sensor fix cost 500$, went to the ER for gall bladder problems leading to 4 days in the hospital, cost $30,000 but they said just give us $6,000 and when you come back to remove it (another $6,000) pay up front.

and some dude named Rocky gave me a harmonica. he can't stand music, it's just noise to him..

Well I'm sorry to hear about your gallbladder problems... When do you think you have to go in to get it taken care of?

And I'm also sorry about your vehicle problems.

But I'm glad to hear you found a better job, and it looks like it's even going to get better for you.

You really should think about starting to post here again... Some of us around here enjoy your wittiness

thanks rem, and those concerned

yes i have been busy, work-sleep-work and repeat, unlike bush i actually took a paycut to something i love rather than something i hate, dont get me wrong it was a gravy chain i rode for 8 years making 6 figures for part time work but the aggravation it caused sometimes was overwhelming for me and my wife, and life is way to short for that, so far i have lost 18 pounds, blood pressure has stabilized and life is good, i plan on posting an update when the new menu comes out featuring some of my recipes with pics


as far as posting yes it has frustrated me watching some members lean left, some i dont think they even realize it, i read here every few days in the morning sometimes while waking up and just dont have the energy to jump in and get caught up in the melee, im sure there is no love lost with a few here

Just busy and pulling down big bucks from my understanding

Well buddy, I'm glad you're okay. I'm glad you're losing weight and your blood pressure is better. I understand about getting busy with work, up until the last few years I worked 16 hours a day six and seven days a week. that doesn't give much time for anything else

I was just hoping that you didn't kill over. That would be a great loss to all of us.

Drop a line here when you can okay buddy
