    i feel better now i'v said my prayers, i always face the south so the wind combs my hair tiptoe through the tulips
    with your darling and you
    kiss your sweetie rather
    deeply with your tongue
    like a goanna grab her
    like a spanner and twist
    lets twist again like
    we did last summer
    where did that come from rob

    What? No rumble? I came armed with a switchblade and a whirligig. Well, if no one’s gonna fight, I’m going to sing a song about the gang I just joined. You might know this one too, so join in at any time,

    When you're a Jet you're a Jet all the way
    From your first cigarette To your last dying day
    When you're a Jet let them do what they can
    You've got brothers around You're a family man
    You're never alone You're never disconnected
    You're home with your own
    When company's expected You're well-protected T
    hen you are set with a Capital J
    Which you'll never forget 'till they cart you away
    When you're a Jet you stay a Jet!
    When you're a Jet you're the top cat in town
    The Gold medal kid with the heavyweight crown
    When you're a Jet you're the swingin'est thing
    Little boy, you're a man, Little man you're a king!
    The Jets are in gear Our cylinders are clickin'
    The sharks'll steer clear 'Cause every Puerto Rican's A lousy chicken!
    Here come the Jets like a bat outta hell
    Someone gets in our way, someone don't feel so well!
    Here come the Jets! Little world, step aside!
    Better go underground! Better run, Better hide!
    We're drawing the line, So keep your nose's hidden
    We're hangin' a sign Sayes visitors forbidden And we ain't kiddin'
    Here come the Jets! Yeah! And we're gonna beat every last buggin' gang on the whole buggin' street. on the whole ever mother lovin' street! Yeah!

    I don’t know about you guys, but that makes me feel a whole lot better. Anyone for ice-cream?

      Nice one, Robert. In one of the versions of this song - I think in the original movie score - the third line is, 'When you're a jet, when the spit hits the fan' I think it works a little better.

    GOOD EVENING america how are you, i promise my next poem will not be about
    the forum it was written in a TEEPEE, while smoking a peace pipe we both spoke
    in a language known only by the chief and myself, which consists of a series
    of grunts, grunt, grunt grunt, that is just a sample

    I guess the 'peace talks' were not in vain, then: -)
    Well, it's probably no coincidence that Adolf broke every pact he ever made.
    Allan, I believe that you are a humorous person, and a capable person.
    I reserve comment on your friend.

    And before I go to play with my marbles (good subject for you Kolb) the author Estes would have discarded insignificants like yourself without further ado. You probably felt some stirrings when you attempted to read the book with the help of a neighbour but then found that it was all wishful thinking.

    Yes Finn, you are correct. Also, you might know that so called non-traditional universities used to be suspect and were vigorously attacked, most viciously by a person named John Bear PhD. John Bear himself was involved in many non-traditional schools, some of which were less than wonderful. The 'brick and mortar' uni's tried their damndest to belittle and ridicule the other schools, many of which offered credit for life experience such as military service and work toward a degree. Then things began to change and several established university of very high standing began to offer 'external studies' some allowed all work to be done toward a master's without any classroom attendance. Today, almost all universities offer these programs and one can obtain a PhD in many subjects while doing about 90 % of the work away from the university. All of them offer credit for life experience.Accreditation is the key. The Georgia school disaster was not the school's problem, the teachers obtained their degrees giving false information in order to get higher pay. As usual, clever lawyers twisted things to get their clients off. The school called StRegis University was a fully accredited university and was later amalgamated into a university complex which is recognised wordlwide and their degrees are accepted everywhere.
    The crux is, as far as accreditation is concerned, whether thet Education Dept. of the country that houses the university certifies the degrees as accredited. If it does EVERY country accepts the degrees as legitimate.
    All my degrees are accredited (even my 35 year old chiropractic degree) and I would be shocked to find they are not since they formed the basis and justification for me to be a full professor at an 'establishment university' and a visiting professor at two others, including one of Europe's top schoools.
    I don't normally go around and justify who I am but the filth of Gonzales Kolb who is most certainly motivated by anti-German hatred and represents acting like a most sour and disgruntled Jew, one who would be called Kike in certain circles. Lest someone construe this statement as anti-semitic, it is not. I can be a grumpy, even disgruntled or cantankerous old Kraut, that statement is also not racist,
    I am somewhat amazed that Kolb would spend her time digging up my past, present and future, it shows so clearly what kind of an unstable individual she is.
    Yes, I have written a dissertation (published) am co-author for several textbooks and have had the great honour of receiving great honours from a variety of sources. But that shall be enough, other than to say that two of the faculty members of the school that Kolb says she attends received their degrees from St Regis (Yes they are accredited) , the US government had an agreement with St Regis for their top management's studies (perhaps that explains the war) and I have credible information that Kolb is a wannabee who doesn't quite hack it. That would explain a few things. Dropout Poetryhound likes her for similar reasons.
    I see no need to further justify who I am and if Kolb persists in calling me names it will only reflect badly on her.
    Some people are so consumed by what they think of as hatred of others when in reality it is hatred of self.Usually they are fat, ugly and they smell.
    Unfortunately, modern Psychiatry is not the answer, I would suggest a closed institution.
    I will try to grace this forum less and less with my presence as I would prefer to play with goat pebbles.
