    There is a penalty where I live. If the Fire Dept. responds to a call at your address false or otherwise you can expect a bill. If you’re doing a controlled burn, better call and let them know, if someone drives by and calls in a fire that they don’t know about they will respond put it out and bill you!:(

    thanks Rob II, Its always a team effort, that in itself is a reward. I know many of us +40yr olds on this very thread share the same values as you've expressed, each in their own way, to look out not just for themselves but also family, and even strangers, because its the right thing to do for those around us in our short life time here.

    Yeah. 40 is tough. Decided not to drink anymore. The side effects are tough almost a year later. I bought a tacoma. Lifted, supercharged, and now I'm modding it endlessly. It was fine until my girlfriend left. Then I got a different one. Now she came back. Crap. What to do?!? Now they're friends. And I have both of them now. Problem is they want ANOTHER girl to join. Life was simpler when I owned a dodge.
