Where do you go to get your daily news, updates, etc.? TV? Radio? Well for as long as I can remember, I rely on YAHOO. My homepage is YAHOO, I've customized it so when I get up in the morning I can open my browser and see: My Inbox, Travel Photography Pool, ARRL Web, MONSTER JOBS Recent Results, Various Yahoo Radio related Groups, U.S. News, World News, Boing-Boing, Techdirt, NPR, Red Sox News, Cnet, Local News and Weather, etc.
But for several months now when I bring up my Yahoo! page, at the very bottom lies a sinister yellow bar blathering something about Facebook. Until I click the X I can't scroll through my page and read my news, and this is occurring with more frequency on other sites too. So...
Dear FACEBOOK, keep yourself to your own stinking page and let me enjoy websites the way I used to, if I want to use facebook, I will - 'NUFF SAID.

FROM TEAM COCO
-Not too long ago I went to the 50th birthday party of my former co-worker, CB/HAM buddy, Doug (for those with long memories, or early issues of the CB Gazette, he wrote a couple articles and is often referred as "101"). His wife Kelli did a great job of setting things up and the theme "World of Beers" was a great choice too. It wasn't until the following day that I started counting (on my toes, fingers, etc.) and realized that out of his 50 years, I'd known him for at least 26 of them. There aren't many people that I've known for much longer (not counting family), except CW-Dave that I've managed to keep in touch with - while some people in small towns have known just about everyone since the birth of dirt.
CW-Dave, Doug, and I have a unique connection as well. Not only were we all working for the same company in the mid-80's, but Dave was our "Elmer" (or as new age protocol dictates: "Mentor"). He spent a lot of his time teaching us of the Jedi ways of Morse-code, and thanks to him, we both became HAMs during the same test session (CEJ and CEM). Times were different back then, all under 30, with Doug being the "baby" of the under 30 age-group.
