Beast,

I pray that God who has walked with me through similar times of depression and purging will comfort you and help you grow daily into recovery.  The pain is real and it changes us.  If we let it, it helps us grow into people who are more aware and more caring for others.

That said, it still hurts.  Below are the lyrics (and a couple links) to a song which has helped me through similar pain through my many years.

Find some people in your life to help you through this valley.

I walked a mile with Pleasure, she chattered all the way.

Left me none the wiser with all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow - never a word said she.

But Ah! the things I learned from her when Sorrow walked with me.

The frost is in the valley and the mountain tops turn gray.

The promised buds all withered and the blossoms fade away.

Our loving Father whispers "All this comes from My hand....

Blessed are you when you trust what you just can't understand."

I walked a mile with Pleasure, she chattered all the way.

Leavin' me none the wiser with all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow - never a word said she.

Oh, the things I learned from her when Sorrow walked with me.

After a lifetime of working all your wealth should fade away,

Leavin' your hands all empty and your hair starts turning gray.

Remember then our Father owns both the sea and the land.

"Blessed are you when you trust what you just can't understand."

I walked a mile with Pleasure, she chattered all the way.

Leavin' me none the wiser with all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow - never a word said she.

Oh, the things I learned from her when Sorrow walked with me.

Mr. Green’s response is correct.  Many web site ad spaces are actually auctioned to marketing companies based on cookies and history of your browsing ... companies have pre-placed bids for opportunity to have their ads sent to the browser of someone who has in one of these ways indicated an interest or behavior the merchant believes indicates a likelihood to respond favorably to their ad.  So if I represented a company that sells outdoor gear for example, I will bid high enough to win space on browsers that have visited outdoor-related sites recently.

So the ads you see are not likely the same as those others see...

"Leader" in the language I learned while living in Africa many years ago...  have been a Scout leader for many of those years since.

I know Bob isn't perfect, but keep in mind that he has been eliminated three years in a row...   wait for it...  by the eventual Stanley Cup Champions.  Not a lot of shame in that.

Each weight class is seeded individually, typically by coaches vote, to account for some wrestlers having built better win-loss records against inferior opposition.  Generally speaking, with the B1G having ten of the InterMat Rankings' top nineteen teams, there's nowhere to hide in the Big Ten Tournament...  the cream will rise to the top. 

Sadly, I don't think OSU has the depth to compete with Penn State this year.

Sad to see Omar Vizquel not make it in.  I loved watching him play shortstop. 

It's a travesty that Clemens and Bonds had more votes than Omar.
