Good morning guys! Brissie..sounds like your a Hingis fan! She certainly has the game I guess, however I don't see how she beats her opponents so easily, they say she can think better on the court than anyone else (women) and that is what does it. Poor Dokjic, remember Mary Pierce's father? He was l...Jump to post
The job doesn't require me to work hard all day and I get a lot of flak from friends because of it but hey they're just jealous!! Tarango is just awful, I am embarassed when I watch/hear of him acting up. He gives tennis and the USA a bad name. McEnroe was pretty bad too but at least he was a brilli...Jump to post
Hello B-707!! Things here in Maine are great! Summer has finally "kicked"in! I think you are right about the Spaniards, they should have played and showed what they could do, especially Corretja, he has already shown that he can play on hard courts, why not grass? Didn't he play Wimbledon last year ...Jump to post
Well I am happy to say that coverage here in Maine of the Championships is pretty good this year. There is a non-premium cable channel that is showing live coverage 6 hours a day during the week with I think a regular channel taking over for the weekends. In the past HBO covered it and you had to pa...Jump to post
Hello and welcome HighFlyah and Chrisk757! If you have read all of the posts on the Adam and Steve thread then you already know a bit about me. I seem to be one of the oldest around here! I have friends who live in Boston and I get down there to visit occasionally so maybe we can meet some day. My e...Jump to post
Hey TWFirst, we (my partner and I) have wondered what those RSVP cruises were like, so you thought it was O.K. huh? As I said before,Provincetown would be great for me, Ft.Lauderdale too, we have tickets for Orlando this coming Feb. could rent a car and drive to Ft.L. it only takes about 3-4 hours. ...Jump to post
TWFirst had the word party in one of his posts so I just sort of chimed in and thought let's have a gay party w/straights welcome. Scott, the float idea is great, I would'nt mind being co-pilot, but you might have someone famous in mind? Can some of the f/a's wear a little leather??!! Or just a litt...Jump to post
Let's try: Walt Whitman, Alan Ginsberg, Leonard Bernstein and the list could go on and on. Hey TWFirst I like the idea of going to the bar where Ben hangs out...etc. Let's do it! My partner and I are also not "out there" in the way militant gays are. We live relatively quiet but active lives. I do u...Jump to post
I won't throw anything in your face, and I am sure you are trying to give your opinion in the best way you can, I respect you for it, but don't call being gay a lifestyle.....it denotes choice and I and all of us gays did not choose to be gay. One can choose his/her religion, clothes, etc. but not o...Jump to post
My preference is #2 also! I love the sights, sounds, smells as you walk to/from the aircraft! I have flown into/out of BIA (Bastia,Corsica France) a couple of times and they don't have the jetways etc. there, it is great to be able to walk down the stairway and watch the engines rev down and the gro...Jump to post
Hi all again! Just got back on this forum after a couple of hours off. There was a question a while back on if parents know etc. I am a lot older than most of you I think (47) and I have been out for a long, long time. Most of my family is great with it, they treat my partner of 20 years and myself ...Jump to post
There's a small article in USA Today about airlines allowing ads on their overhead storage bins. Vanguard and Sun Country are already doing it promoting themselves and are thinking about letting other companies advertise also.
What do you think? Good/Bad idea?
Hello all! Yesterday it was a beautiful day here in Maine hot and sunny and as I was walking in the parking lot where I work I found a dog in a parked truck with the windows cracked open about an inch or so, the poor animal was in distress and I first called campus police and then animal control. A ...Jump to post
I was not going to read this post at first, but now am glad that I did as I have found that most of the respondants are intelligent human beings.
Brissie, you said it most eloquently, as a gay male myself I thank you and all the others who have responded in an intelligent manner!
Hi, I looked on Delta's web site (www.delta-air.com) and the itinerary that I was given was BOS-ATL (767-300) ATL-RSW (757) RSW-BOS (Delta Express-737) I don't know why they just didn't give me Delta Express both ways but that is how it came up! Hope this helps! Dk.Jump to post
Hello, we here in Maine had a horrible tragedy a few years back where an 18 wheeler rammed a stopped car that was in the breakdown lane with 4 teenages in it ( I knew one of them) and killed them all. He had fallen asleep at the wheel and drifted over to the side of the road right into them. You guy...Jump to post
Well Tom since you are married and she is engaged and soon to be married there isn't much you can do unless she breaks her engagement and you get divorced! IF you both are so unhappy in your current relationships than that is probably what you should do, but you should think very very hard before do...Jump to post
Yes Copper1 you are right! It is great to get others ideas etc. on different types of issues which can make for a lively debate and exchange of information. It can make us look at something a little differently perhaps and that can lead to understanding (hopefully)! It's what makes the "world go rou...Jump to post
I agree that Hingis is a great champion, but she needs to keep her temper in check! Maybe as she gets older that will change. I keep thinking of Seles though and what a great champion she was/is and I have never seen her throw a tantrum, she is always gracious win or loose, on or off the court, but ...Jump to post
Yes, I saw the women's final! It was great I am happy that Pierce won. I also got to see the men's final today LIVE, one of our local channels broadcast it and did a pretty good job, usually they cut to commercial and when they go back to the action it is in the middle of a point!! But not today. Wh...Jump to post
This thread is about ended I guess but I wanted to say that I was a fearful flyer for many many years and a few years ago I took one of those "courses" that Ctbarnes was talking about. It was great and it changed my life, I am a much more comfortable flyer now! BTW you have more of a chance of dying...Jump to post
Of the few types that I have flown so far I like the B767 and the A320!Jump to post
I am also surprised but very pleased with the way the women's semi's have turned out! As I may have said before Hingis is not one of my favorite players because of her temper, not professional at all! Unfortunately I have never been to the U.S. Open but plan to go some day. I live in Maine and it's ...Jump to post
I love his books! I think that I have read most everything that he has written. I agree Pandora's Clock and Medusa's Child were very good, and The Last Hostage and Final Approach are also good reading. Does anyone know if he has anything in the works at the moment or something out recently that I ma...Jump to post
Martinez is crushing Sanchez-Vicaro at the moment 5-1 in the first set! I agree with you on Hingis and Pierce. One of my dreams is to go to Europe and follow the clay and grass court tournaments around! I hear that T.V. coverage on tennis in Europe is very comprehensive, in the case of Wimbledon you...Jump to post
I have flown AA from BOS-CDG a couple of times in the last 2 years and found the service and entertainment pretty good. The first time was on an A300 with PTV's (coach) which I did'nt particularly like as I found the screen too small and if it was too light in the cabin I could'nt see it very well. ...Jump to post
Hingis's tantrum didn't endear her to me either! Unfortunately Venus was not in the best of shape match wise. Both of the ones I pegged are out (Seles and Mauresmo) so I guess it will be Hingis unless Pierce can keep her act together! Kuerten won his match against Kafelnikov so he is still in the ru...Jump to post
A co-worker of mine just told me he was on a Delta 767 recently sitting in row 12 and it had no window. I have never noticed this on the few 767's that I have flown on. Has anyone ever seen this before and would you know the reason for it? (I just posted this topic a minute ago but it did'nt seem to...Jump to post
I have a co-worker who said that he recently flew on a Delta Airlines 767, had a seat in row 12 and there was no window!? Does anyone know anything about this?
