First they took the 3 meter boards out. I saw a kid almost fall and kill himself on one. It was his fault, he was fooling around and slipped. Lucky for him he hit the water. But the high-dive was a big thing. You faced your fears. It was scary as heck. I could never bring myself to dive off of it, just jump. Most people just jumped.

Now they are mostly gone. Yet one more challenge kids do not get these days.

All this talk about the dangers of concrete swimmin holes gives a new meaning to the thread title.

The tracks I'm talking about have the Accela that only goes about a hundred m.p.h. past my house. I think they have to go slower in this area. Terrorism and such wasn't as big a deal in the sixties and seventies when we played on and walked the tracks. I do remember kids (not me) putting all kinds of stuff across the tracks for the train to demolish.

Missed this last week. Danny Kirwan an early member of Fleetwood Mac died on Friday. He often played lead guitar for the band and wrote or co-wrote a lot of their early work. He left the band before Stevie Nicks joined and they became much better known. Sounds like he was basically homeless for years.

I liked him till he started dissing
Trump, then I stopped liking him.
Charles hated to be wrong, and
he always mocked and laughed
and said Trump would never
win.

George Will has been the same way.

Charles always said Trump would never
get anything done because he's not
a politician and doesn't know how
Washington works. He was totally wrong,
Trump has got a huge amount done.

I didn't want him to die but I'm not
sad he never returned to Fox. I was
tired of listening to his negativity.

Why isn't Bob Barker ever on this
list, he'll be 95 this year. Kirk Douglas
will be 102.
