    Do you mind sharing what technology you are utilizing to know when a webpage has changed? Specifically an event page on EE.

    Thanks Labs. I just book marked it. Got shut out on one I wanted just recently. Maybe this will help. JD

    New to the hunt test thing here, and already getting a sour test in my mouth. I agree how does the test fill up in 90 minutes??? I would love to see a all amateur trained and handled stake. I enjoy the training. I just don't understand how someone sends their dog to a pro from day one, then three years later brags how good their dog is?? It's getting like the horse racing were the owners are smoking fat cigars while "their" horse runs, all while sipping champagne bragging about their portfolios!

    Heck I am a hunter first and foremost, my dog is a hunter first and foremost, this game helps us hunt better! Just my HO, not intended to offend anyone!

    Myself and I am sure at least a few others had no idea. Thanks, this was the most helpful post.

    it's getting like????? no, it has always been like!

    dude let me ask how your lessons went today? you are obviously home schooling your children, right? you couldn't possibly be proud of them if you didn't educate them entirely by yourself, right?

    how about your home, are you proud of it? a guy like you must have dug its footings by hand, laid the foundation and dorve every nail, right? you couldn't be proud of it if you didn't, right?

    the shotgun you hunt with must be a forged damascus double from your own forge and blacksmith shop, right? the stock is one you hand carved from the burled stump of the old walnut tree you planted with your grand dad when you were just a boy. it blew down in the storm of 2006 and was air dried in your barn loft until you judged it suitable, right? you couldn't possibly be proud of it otherwise, right?

    the mounted pintail you shot with the federal band in 2,011 looks great on your man cave wall. there is such a great reward in doing your own taxidermy, right?

    just sayin', no matter what parts of your life you choose to do or choose not do for yourself, someone does these things themselves and can't understand why you do it differently.

    i had a wonderful homegrown tomato sandwich for lunch today......it could not have been tastier even if i woulda grown the tomatos myself?

    backwater, if you can put a nice portfolio together for yourself, i will bring cigars for the both of us. they will be hand rolled with the tender hands and upon the gentle thighs of a young, exotic cuban maiden. unless you'd rather i roll them up on my own hairy, sweaty legs!!!! lol
