odd...that isn’t what i was thinking. but, yeah that was a tough age for many.

I'm surprised I made it past it.  Actually, a lot of other people were too.

 

Yea for real... 

That was the age I stopped drinking and drugging.... 

getting in fights.... getting locked up........going through a divorce.....then waking up in the hospital with half my left hand ripped off....  Hmmmm maybe I got a problem:wacko:

 

Lucky I made to 28........ I met The BOSS when I was 27 and even after going through all that I was still drinking...... She was the best thing that ever happened to me..... and I knew if I kept on the same path I would loose her too..... with the help of the court system I got some help.... funny, that was 27 years ago.... I'll be 54 this June 1st and that's when I stopped drinking....

I have a 20 year old daughter. Her, and her Mom, my wife, would freak out if they knew even 1% of the stuff I did in my younger days. Life was easier back then.

MKP - which JBL do you speak of? Making Chorus sound like bookshelves! Or is this tongue-in-cheek?

Well..... maybe a "slight" exaggeration on my part:D

While the Chorus are chest pounders...........the JBL's are foundation shakers:o

 

I should have said the JBL's make the Chorus sound like a Heresy....

 

                                    Here they are............

Very well done.

I had a pair of those Chorus, drove all the way to Eugene to fetch them @ an ebay price of $500, just sold them to a youngin just getting into audio for 3Bones.

Seeing where i am now, these never stood a chance for my listening pleasure.

The wife ask just the other day, are WE done yet?

Well babe, im good for the momment.

Yeah well same here.

In the OC, later days, being a sheriff, talking to other sheriff's, same story.

We would just end up speechless as to our childhood(s).

You are to be commended MKP.  Getting on top of any addiction is difficult.  

 

My older sister and a good friend were both unable to conquer their respective alcohol problems.  Each had the motivation of a new grandchild, but that was not enough.  They were unable to see that alcohol made their problems more difficult to address, not easier to endure.

+1 doesn't go far enough. 

 

I have a lot of respect for you not only for beating the alcohol, but for having the courage to talk about it.

You caught on at a younger age than I did, Mark. It's been 21 yrs for me and I stopped in June as well. We need to talk off line one of these days. :) There is indeed a life after booze.

I haven't had a flu shot in several years but this year two doctors in the same office said I really should get one and a pneumonia vaccine as well.  I relented and got one of each Friday.  Spent the next 48 hours feeling bad, sleeping a lot, and little food.  Just now feeling half way okay.

What has been your experience with these vaccines?  Did they make you sick?

Having never experienced the flu I shy'd  away from flu shots until my doc convinced me last year. Last year, this year no after affects whatsoever.

Never had a problem with the flu vaccine, and I'm sure I'm a few years older.  Never have had a pneumonia vaccine, actually didn't even know they were available.....Hope you feel better soon.
