  1. I just received this and knew I must pass it on TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS THEN OPEN THE LINK AT THE BOTTOM. IT IS SPECIAL ! The elderly parking lot attendant wasn't in a good mood! Neither was Sam Bierstock. It was around 1 a.m., and Bierstock, a Delray Beach, Fla. eye doctor, business consultant, corporate speaker and musician, was bone tired after appearing at an event. He pulled up in his car, and the parking attendant began to speak. "I took two bullets for this country and look what I'm doing," he said bitterly. At first, Bierstock didn't know what to say to the World War II veteran. But he rolled down his window and told the man, "Really, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you." Then the old soldier began to cry. "That really got to me," Bierstock says. Cut to today. Bierstock, 58, and John Melnick, 54, of Pompano Beach - a member of Bierstock's band, Dr. Sam and the Managed Care Band - have written a song inspired by that old soldier in the airport parking lot. The mournful "Before You Go" does more than salute those who fought in WWII. It encourages people to go out of their way to thank the aging warriors before they die. "If we had lost that particular war, our whole way of life would have been shot," says Bierstock, who plays harmonica. "The WW II soldiers are now dying at the rate of about 2,000 every day. I thought we needed to thank them." The song is striking a chord. Within four days of Bierstock placing it on the Web, the song and accompanying photo essay have bounced around nine countries, producing tears and heartfelt thanks from veterans, their sons and daughters and grandchildren. "It made me cry," wrote one veteran's son. Another sent an e-mail saying that only after his father consumed several glasses of wine would he discuss "the unspeakable horrors" he and other soldiers had witnessed in places such as Anzio, Iwo Jima, Bataan and Omaha Beach. "I can never thank them enough," the son wrote. "Thank you for thinking about them." Bierstock and Melnick thought about shipping it off to a professional singer, maybe a Lee Greenwood type, but because time was running out for so many veterans, they decided it was best to release it quickly, for free, on the Web.! They've sent the song to Sen. John McCain and others in Washington. Already they have been invited to perform it in Houston for a Veterans Day tribute - this after just a few days on the Web. They hope every veteran in America gets a chance to hear it. GOD BLESS every EVERY veteran... and THANK you to those of you veterans who may receive this!

  15. After watching the video again and reading what I can about the gas produced - all I can say is WOW !! That gas; when in a torch, producing temps from the 200's to 10,000+ degrees. That gizmo is the Pot Of Gold at the end of the Rainbow for all sorts of illegal activities : safe cracking, cutting thru all sorts of locking devices, etc. That flame catalizing with what its touching to cut, fuse, whatever. Looks Amazing !!!! Might have to get one and go into the safe cracking business - only as a hobby tho !!!! :haha:
  16. Sounds good !!!! Got a draft "Oly"????
  17. peepnklown : Just to point out: 911 is not the right format for the terrorist attack date. You are putting down: "nine, one, one," one - one is not a date, it's a number. "Nine - eleven ( 9/11 )" is proper or "9/11/2001" . To refer to the attack as 911 could be: emergency number, the number between 910 and 912 or what else you want it to be. Any use of 911 instead of 9/11 is disrespecting the dead, the survivors and the rest of America. That's like today's date is the 17th ( seventeenth ) day of May not the 17 ( one seven ) of May. Thanks for letting me blow off a little steam but 911 is WRONG !!! IT'S "9 / 11" ( nine - eleven ) !!!!!!!! Get it right the first time !!!!! Doesn't matter what other people do - it's what you do that counts. If I'm wrong - prove it to me. Then I'll apologize to all on the Forum !!!!! Or kick me off the forum - your choice Jim
  18. That wasn't invented by an engineer of the fairer sex - was it ??? What with all the sonic vibrations .
  19. Saying that the US government planned 9 / 11 /2001 is about as stupid as if you claimed to be the Second Coming Of Christ. Might have been - tommie !!!
  20. I'm with you on the high beams. Follow real close - never trusted my reaction time or the breaks/tires on the vehicle. I guess that's some road rage.
  21. At least Arizona has taken a stand and one man is doing what he can. Look around and you can see how widespread the situation has gotten.
