It's a scary situation with liberals in control. I just read in todays paper that since same sex marriage was voted down in California they're gonna try in N.Y. now, where the democrats have a majority, and 5 Supreme Court justices are over 70 now. The northeast and northwest pretty much control things, all the big city-big crime-big welfare areas, but the biggest land area voted republican...but i'm not gonna get into politics here...even though it seems like the country is going to hell in a handbasket at a rapid pace...i'm not sayin' nuthin'.

Well thats Cool Rick. I have lived All Over the South East Panhandle been in alaska for over 14 years now. But thats one place I havent been yet is Chicken.. Ya know how it got its name right??????

well for those that dont.. This is true story..

the old timers in the gold rush that went over there was gonna name it Ptarmigan (after the state bird)BUT the truth of it is. the old timers couldnt settle on how it was spelled.

So they just gave up and called it CHICKEN... that is a true story.

Its just kinda Like Prudhoe Bay.. its not the name of the (town)/ Community) up there,, as if it were even a town But the Real name is DEAD HORSE. thats the Name of the Post Office there, Dead Horse Alaska. Prudhoe Bay is Actually the name of the near by BAY ofcourse. and they Dubbed the area the Prudhoe Bay Oil Field. here is a interesting Link for those that are interested.

http://www.prudhoebay.com/communities_Deadhorse.htm

Also this.

I have enjoyed some trips to Anchorage and even gone on, as they say, to Alaska, including Fairbanks, Barrow, Prudhoe, and so on. I like the story about the name Deadhorse coming about in the early days of oil exploration on the North Slope when the companies asked about airlift capabilities and Wien Airlines said they could handle anything, including a dead horse. Anyway, the food out at the camps was better than at that motel in Deadhorse.

Glad you were able to get that task accomplished. I was starting to get confused as to my own identity. I do however, confuse easily.

You see Barry is not such a bad guy, just not as lovable as me. He even let you keep your avatar.
