"Babysinister" is the gang name of a particularly sleazy minor character in the 90s gangster movie Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead. It just caught my eye.

Once upon a time I almost opened a restaurant that was to be called Beau or Bo or Le Beau du Bois. I just added pipe to that, I suppose. In French, the name means Handsome Pipe. But it is pronounced as Bo-Peep (as in little...). Probably a commentary on confused gender identity.

My dad and I had season tickets to the Packers from the late 50's through the 70's, and saw Nitschke (and Horning, and Starr) play several times, every year. I was even at the (in)famous "ice bowl" when poor Dallas froze their paningies off!

When I first registered on the old Knox board, I started with the name "Grabowski" because most of my pipes were Dr. Grabows. One day it occurred to me the name it may give the impression of being an ornery big pro wrestler so I changed to "Ol'Dawg" since I'm a University of Georgia graduate and their mascot is a bulldog. The teams are commonly referred to as "the Dawgs".

The name, of course, comes from what I do. Used the "a" instead of the correct "o" because someone already was using the correct spelling on another site I signed in for. Laughing

Ron A is me, March 5, 1997 is the date of my liver transplant. At the time, they told my family I might live 3 or 4 more days if a liver didn't become available.

Speaking of transplants, has anyone heard from Bulldog Bruce lately? I had his email address but can't find it.

Mine is my middle name, which sounds much cooler (pun) than my first or last names. My parents were fans of Robert Frost.

Man, anyone old enough to remember Ray Ntiscke and Dick Butkus has some fond memories of the game. To this day I don't think I've seen more intense players. Off the field Ray was a gentile, mild, soft spoken individual. In the game however, he was a vicious monster. The NFL eventually had to change the rules from the way they played. Absolutely NO MERCY!

Sorry, I know I've gotten off the subject a bit but...

Reminds me of an old story I heard about Red Grange. No, I"m not that old! He was famous for putting his head down and plowing ahead into the offensive line. One time he broke through, making a touchdown and hit his nogg'n on the goal post. It knocked him out cold. When he came to he said. "Who was that guy?

All Sherlockians know that Irene Adler was the only woman the misogynistic, pipe-smoking Holmes was ever outsmarted by, and so the only one he ever truly respected and desired. Hmmm... Forum of pipe-smoking men. One woman. Does anyone else detect a bit of playfulness, here?

I chose Justpipes back in the old JRBB days because pipes are the only thing that I smoke. Have never cared for cigars or cigarettes.

I stick with my initials or real name on the web. Nothing worth writing that I wouldn't want to associate with my offline identity, as they are one and the same after all. Of course, with tobacco you might have to be a bit careful and prepare for the day the government will start data mining sites like this in order to incarcerate smokers and send them to labor camps in Siberia Wink

Object permanence is the term for a child to know that when an object is no longer perceived by the senses, it still exists. It develops around age 2, according to Piaget.

When my daughter achieved this type of perception, I was no longer able to hide behind a door and tell her I was alfredo buscatti. She would say, "no, you're daddy."

I dabble with Linux systems for fun, hence the "penguin".
The "Low-flying" bit is a little joke, as penguins don't fly...

Alternate name for Su Daji. It was my character's name on a MUD (I'd just read Fengshen Yanyi when I started playing) and it kinda stuck.

I own a 1957 Chevy Bel Air and spend many days in the shop restoring them for customers. I love these cars. I was born in 59. Chevy 5759 seemed to fit me.
