my wife grew up in goves, we live up north of there in woodville now. up in the lakes area. groves and port arthur has really gone down hill the last few years. mainly since most of the katrina refugees never left. now its all government housing down there.

i grew up in WI. There is alot of cranberries grown up around the tomah and black river falls area.

I always thought cranberries grew on bushes until I visited the Ocean Spray bogs on my route. Can’t recall, but seems they were located near Raymond WA.
Sad about Port Arthur.
Looked at a mansion, all brick, servant’s quarters, large pool, iron gated grounds….$280K, just out of the Griffin Park area.
That was in the 90s.
Interesting place down there.
Crawdads comin’ right outta the ground.
Wonderful Cajun folk.
Just as wonderful Cajun food.
I’m enjoying all that I own, the moment.

after Rita amd Ike most everything down there is destroyed. port arthur still has more abandoned buildings then occupied. Ike brought in so much water there was two houses in all of bridge city that didnt have water in them. many of them people had just finished rebuilding from rita when ike hit. all the great old food shacks around the.coast and sabine pass are out in the gulf and will never be rebuilt. my wifes uncle had a beach house on crystal beach that got washed away, im not even sure the land still exists as alot of the property was washed out to the gulf whenbthe water receded

Yeah, a few years back cabi and I were getting a line wet on the Clackamas, and ran into a couple young guys that had the strangest lure set ups I’d ever seen. Turns out they were from N’awlins…showed ‘em a couple pointers for steel head…wonder if they ever caught anything…..

speaking of my bride and fishing (she loves to fish, BTW) she hooked in to her first steelie at the turn of the century.
I tell you, it did my ol’ heart good to watch her tangle with that scaled mass of solid muscle. It was strippin’ her line pretty good when I reached over and tightened the drag.
She had a blast landin’ that sweet little hen.
This is a copy from VHS to camera from the monitor so quite grainy and voices are a tad inaudible…..

Oh, there's some great bass water in The Dalles area, and salmon, and sturgeon.
If your friend is native american, then he's a very happy camper these days, as they recently opened a lot of water up in their old fishing grounds.
Yeah, the gourge drive is nice....in the summer.

These days recovery chances are quite good. My boss and mentor went thru that about ten years ago. He still comes by and gives me playful grief.

Yup, livin’ out of a suitcase gets old anyway. Best 18 wheeler has no sleeper.

".....simply copy the URL from the video host page address bar and paste it into the topic post here on CountryPlans............."

 This phrase is driving this ignopotamus over the edge.
Got pictures, Don?….with pointy red arrows?.......and red circles?
Thing is, even rocket surgery is simple….IF YOU KNOW HOW!!!
Little help here (please)

Meanwhile, here’s a couple vids we took at the cabin…….
One with me recording this beautiful bird song in hopes of a little help in identifying…..
Thing was, by the time I got the camera on the tripod, the little guy clammed up.
The other one is when we tapped an existing well with a hand pump, on the adjoining property we recently bought.

Those url's you posted above are strange.
For 1 thing, the way youtube is broken up ???
2. When I click on either it opens a youtube page that tells me the video is private. ???
3. But the url goes through some metamorphosis and if I copy the new url and paste it here in  a message AND apply the second method of displaying a video here, then it works.  Like these....

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/r83C6w8V_zo&amp;feature=youtu.be&fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/r83C6w8V_zo&amp;feature=youtu.be&fs=1</a>

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/exoZ12uxa5c&amp;feature=youtu.be&fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/exoZ12uxa5c&amp;feature=youtu.be&fs=1</a>

But those also come up as being Private.

We need a public viewable url or link to get any further on these two examples.

Yes, I will get around to making up an illustrated "how to"


Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

If you didn't have the time or money to do it right in the first place, when will you get the time and money to fix it?

Okay great. That made those two I entered work.


In researching how to make videos appear embedded I did run into a few YouTube videos that don't want to embed easily (using the simple method). Those do work using the alternative method. It can be confusing.    More later.

CjAl-lucky you.living in the Groves and married to a cajun gal.
i could eat some boudin right now.oh my!I awitched over to yankee foods once i got up north with my mister.sure do love to go to my sisters house in texas and get gumbo and have shrimp boils.i am trying to shoot squirels up at our woods and eat them and make my mister some hats.thats my on-

Well I'll be dipped in gumbo and slathered in etouffee.  POOOHHHEEE!! You make me hungry there gal......  I might live in the north but I think my stomach stays down there some where south of Baton Rouge near Houma and Grand Isle.  All the while the music of Michael Doucette and Beausoleil, Mary Chapin Carpenter's - Down At The Twist And Shout   Doug Kershaw belting out Colinda, and Dewey Balfa and  Todd Balfa preform Jai Ete Au Bal plays in my mind for ten thousandth time.

Cute YouTube

If you ran I 84 Idaho to Portland you seen me somewhere along the way.  I was running one of those big long trains there between Huntington and Baker City.  You most likely were wondering why the HELL don't that @#%$@$###$ dim those $%$#%$%#$ lights.  You ever took fuel or food or tried to sleep in LaGrande at the Flying J you heard me blowing for the crossings.

Well, geez, Don, I bet even I can follow that.
Once I get home, I'll follow those cookie crumbs to fruition....after Rick's ear worms loosen their grip on what's left of my mind....

Thank you Mr Wizard.

I know LaGrande is quite a bit further east of Antelope, but maybe you got some residual left overs from the Bhagwan….just kiddin’…kinda.

Had an Aunt that lived in The Dalles…kinda high up in The Thousand Friends of Oregon…got poisoned by the Rajneeshees. Darn near died. She’s gone now, but really had some stories.
Up till then my policy was let bhagwans be bhagwans……..

Was that part of the Safeway salad bar poisoning they were suspected of, or one of the restaurants?  One of my favs was when the Bhagwan would have everyone herded into the gym for the weekly orgy.  He said it really cut down on the tensions of life, and of the time or so it was reported in the news papers.
