Charles' dad was a railroad fireman back in the steam engine days. The saying goes that he always kept a blue flame in the firebox which was good because a blue flame was as hot as the fire could get, thereby generating more steam. So he was nicknamed "Blue Flame" and the name followed on ...
I had no idea that Russ had passed away. We e-mailed and talked by phone periodically but I hadn't heard from him in quite a while. Can someone tell me when he died? Last time we talked he had just bought a new motorcycle and was mighty proud of that bike. I knew that he and Helga were living in Lad...

The 2016 general election marks twice in the last five elections that the democratic party had been cheated out of the presidency by the Electoral College. In the 2000 election Bush #2 received approximately 500,000 fewer popular votes than Gore. And in the most recent election Trump received about...

That's good Freddie. The disabled and our vets should have a special place in the festival. I saw in the paper where they were bragging on how well organized it was. Quite to the contrary. Pathetic how the organizers overlooked you guys. Wish you the best brother !!!

Me 2 sig. I'm voting for Trump. We know what we'll be getting if Clinton is elected. Another four years, possibly eight, of Obamaism. I shudder to think. In Trump there is some semblance of hope for America !!!
A clue. There are several species of rattlesnakes but only one is prominent around the Hamlet area. And it isn't the Diamondback. Bruce Osborne should certainly know the answer to this one !!!
Here at Panama City Beach we had a snake show and I saw them milk rattlesnakes. I think they Diamond Back Rattlesnakes I'm well familiar with the Eastern Diamondbacks . But that's not the species I'm looking for. Diamondbacks aren't native to the Hamlet area but there are plenty of the species whic...
The trivia question for today is: What can be found around Hamlet that can be milked? It's not a cow, goat or any kind of animal or flower. The answer, when answered, must be specific as to what species. Good Luck !!!
Congratulations. We have a winner !!! I knew what the reason was all along sigmore. I firmly believe in covert, clandestine operations. But couldn't it have been by emails? Of course Hillary is a prime example of why emails can't be trusted as they can be hacked. I had to use a round about way of ga...

This is getting to be a serious situation here. This child must be identified. She's been on the "Do You Know" site too long. Every time I go there there's that cute, poor little face staring up at me. If nobody knows her last name will she remain on here forever? How did her photo wind up...

Any trouble with bears here? I saw on the news last week where a trail biker was mauled to death by a bear in Glacier National Park. Beautiful pics.
How about something to do with hand-cars before they became motorized, sort of like the ones we used to see Charlie Chaplin hand pumping to get out of the way of a runaway engine? Bruce is close enough on the answer. What I was referring to was the section worker who rode with a section foreman or ...
Sorry Lynn. That's not the answer but you brought back some fond memories. I always was the one who got to crank the hand churn. I cranked extra fast so I could get my share sooner.
If someone used the words "Crank Hand," who or what were they referring to? This term was widely used around Hamlet. And it wasn't a drug user as the word "crank" is sometimes referred to.
