THE FRONT PAGE of the April 6 edition of The Augusta Chronicle boasts of a 72-page Masters preview. Actually 32 of those pages are advertising, and that's counting only the full or half page ads.

THANKS FOR THE EXCELLENT 2008 Masters Preview. The feature on Rae's Creek was a very thoughtful bonus. There is a heaven!

RAVES TO ADMINISTRATORS at both Episcopal Day School and Tubman Middle School for encouraging parents to see what goes on in their respective classrooms.

HOW DOES THE McDuffie Board of Education justify the money spent on the Renaissance program?

I CAN'T BELIEVE the fireman on the computer. How in the world is he going to get that off?

I SEE THAT someone has done the math on what this war is costing in terms of fuel. Now if they would just include the other cost of fuel as well: cost of chartered airlines, cost of training, cost of contractors in Iraq, and the cost of civilian war effort. No wonder the oil companies are getting richer.

NEED AUTO LICENSE renewed? Go to Appling. Nice, scenic, short drive; no waiting in long lines; and the natives are friendly.

RAVES TO THE MAN that found my credit card in a Kroger shopping cart in Martinez. I tried calling the phone number on my answering machine and it is not in service. I am a 79-year-old widow. God bless you for sparing me a lot of anxiety. Thanks again.

A RAVE TO CHRIS THOMAS , Channel 12 WRDW News. I can't resist listening to the news when Chris Thomas comes on.

I FEEL THE LOSS of Virginia Tech students but I do not think that we the taxpayers should have to pay for the burden where the system failed.

THIS IS A RAVE for Brian, my paper carrier. He always bags my paper and throws it close to the house. I have a disability and it is hard for me to get out and get my paper. He'll never know how much I appreciate this. I live in the Belvedere Ridge. Thank you.

April, I want get into your

April, I want get into your business with Kathy, NWR81, but I have to tell you, these ladies and their spouses are nice, friendly people. I have had the pleasure of meeting them at our gathering and I really enjoyed their company. Rose and her husband and Baroness are good people too. We don't always agree and at times I get overly passionate in my beliefs. But, because we don't agree, doesn't mean with shouldn't get along. The next time we get together, come, get to know them, I think you will agree with me.

God, I'm glad I'm NOT April. Folks give me enough crap being Angie. The reason I thought it might be me is because, in highschool folks used to always call me April.

LOL Angie, you met her on one

LOL Angie, you met her on one of her sweetest days She was on her best behavior as there was a pastor on the board today. It is interesting that she begs him to go back and review what other posters may have said about her but she had carefully deleted all the nasty, spiteful things that she herself had said. Things that she had initiated and then acted as the wounded one. It was positively galling!

The man caught selling the pirated goods should have went to the South Augusta Flear Market. They do it there regularly, even with a Sheriff's substation there.

The same guy sells stuff

The same guy sells stuff beside the building at the gas station on the corner of Walton Way and Crawford Ave. I've called the cops a couple of times because he is rather "aggressive" in his sales, but they didn't seem to be that interested until now.I had the impression that he was also selling stolen items also.....

Three women: one engaged, one

Three women: one engaged, one married, and one a mistress, are chatting about their relationships and decide to amaze their men....that night all three will wear a leather bodice S&M style, stilettos and mask over their eyes After a few days they meet again.....

The engaged girlfriend said: "The other night, when my boyfriend came back home, he found me in the leather bodice, 4" stilettos and mask.
He said, 'You are The woman of my life, I love you...then we made love all night long.'"

The mistress stated: "Oh Yes! The other night we met in the office. I was wearing the leather bodice, mega stilettos, mask over my eyes and a raincoat. When I opened the raincoat, he didn't say a word. We just had wild whopee all night."

The married one then said: "The other night I sent the kids to stay at my mothers for the night, I got myself ready, leather bodice, super stilettos and mask over my eyes. My husband came in from work, grabbed the TV controller and a beer, and said, 'Hey Batman, what's for dinner?'"

Seems like ya'll had a rough day. I spent the day with my wife's bike. I finally found a local shop that works on bikes as well as cars. If someone wants a business idea, Jiffy Lube for bikes would be a good one.

Jake--I didn't notice your

Jake--I didn't notice your question until today, after the thing made reference to it. Parris Island is in the middle of nowhere, close to the swamp and there is no breathing when it's hot. There is more tradition at PI and the reference was always made to the effeminate nature of the recruits in CP. The weather makes the most difference. CP obviously has easier climates. PI also has a reputation for the more severe hazing, which I believe is true. One thing that shows the meaning of being from PI is that if you are born in an area that means you have to go to CP, you can petition to go to PI. So maybe it has some more prestige, but either place is a vacation in hell.

I went back and checked the

I went back and checked the comments I have made about April. I didn't find any that would have placed me on her demon list. That leads me to believe that April may just be one of many names she has gone by here. Because I have indeed spoken my mind about people who make nasty and hateful posts. April's MO is the same. Also, she started posing just recently under the name April, but then complained about people commenting to her posts in the past. So I know that she has posted under a different name. Now I will start ignoring her.

Its hard to understand why

Its hard to understand why the posters who dislike everyone and everything that's said on this board keep on returning time and time again. There's thousands of other boards online that they can turn to and find a happy niche to call their own. Why keep on returning here, back to us if they feel that way? I suspect that they find us irresistable and can't bare to leave us alone! ;-)
