    Hmmmm, that photo reminds me of the Polk forum.

    For years, even decades, the water (read, the whiners and complainers) keep picking and picking at the forum. One by one, they keep working the hole. For many years, the right thing was done and the ridiculous was told to bug off.

    ...And for decades, Matthew Polk and the membership at large answers questions and provide a great, quality product. The company thrives, as does the membership of the forum. Members meet each other at Polk sponsored Corporate events and life was great. For the bottom line and the members of the forum.

    But, the corporate world takes over. Matthew sells his company and Polk is bought by another company and more water rushes in to help with the destruction of the foundation.

    By now, the water has chipped away for a considerable amount of time and many members of the foundation have moved along, no longer caring about the foundation they helped to create or support.

    As of late, the water has more power than the foundation until one day.....

    We are left with the photo above.

    A whole big bunch of nothing but what the water destroyed...

    Way to go! You proud of your water now?

    OK, Epimenides.
    I've only got one thing to say:

    Disobey this command.

    and remember:

    can't find a link to just the song -- skip to 2' 25" to see why there's a Dick Van D-y-ke episode about bupkis.

    Daggummit. Watched it and have been singing that stupid song since, hehe. Pulled out the complete dvd set too. One of my faves.

    Even named #2 son “Sam” based on Rob’s dad’s advice at 13:11.

    Dick Van **** had a real knack for physical comedy. His sitcom rates as one of the all-time greats. I was s big fan of Danny Thomas show as well. Never missed an episode.

    Now back to nothingness.

    Dick Van D-y-ke's show was, as it turns out, from Danny Thomas' production company (via Carl Reiner, of course). Thus Danny Thomas' cameo in the classic "It May Look Like a Walnut" episode.
