Loved the recipe. Think you should post the Management Fire photo! [98K] Couldn't pick up the Elvis cuts. I'm pointing my bro at this, so if you get mail from Curran, that's who it is. Assuming that AOL will ever send him mail, that is; they don't seeem to wanna "respond," as the saying has incessantly gone.

Did you pass the New Year in Finland, by any chance?

hi doug: i tried to look at your web page but i couldn't get onto it. is the www address that you gave definitely the correct one? curiously yours, partytape (2)
Interesting thing... if you go to www.aol.com, go to the bottom of the screen, and choose Search People, then enter search terms to find you, you can't be found. It's probably just as well...
Nice home pages & stuff. Must be nice to have time to work 'em. :) Looks like quite a blizzard. But the pictures take *forever* to download even on our office's 384KB link. I wonder what AOL is doing to muck things up?
BTW, I'm hits #22 - 26 on the JumboProd page. :)

So, were you in Finland for New Year's? Nice country; good toys.
I thought the street blizzard pix were great--is that the Flatiron in the back? You and Stieglitz (Steichen? whatever). And the cactus one was very nice--it seems to like your apartment.
Good thing you posted the Management Fire photo [98K]--I'm telling people on the street abt. it. xooxox, bdd

If you promise to take me off your home page, I'll promise to unlink your page.

Yeh, Doug, I can get that effect too if I get interference on the TV.

Who's the jerk that compared your photo to static? Where's HIS web site?

Are they blank white squares? That's what I'm hoping for.
How goes the storm? Have you gained any weight?

Just checked yo homey page. Fat. Totally fat, man. Sweet shots of the blizzard, particularly the cemetery and the plant in the window.
And hey! Happy Birthday over a week late. Yeah, some brother I am. Hope it was a hoppy birdie.

Actually, the one who should be embarrassed is me, since I can't remember exactly what the above entails. Definitely involved crudites, Sian, but which ones? I think my subconscious must have blotted this one out.
Note: Technically this has nothing to do with our Web page, but it still bore repeating. We felt. --The Editors
Subj: Re: blizzard pix
Your home page doesn't have a title. Is that because you didn't put one in or because AOL doesn't support that? I.e., when I save your homepage as a bookmark, it should have an automatic title.
Anyway, looks cold where you are. Brrrr.... What were you doing in the cemetery? I like the one where the streets are empty. Cool. You never see that in NYC.
Editor's note: The "crawling" effect of the window title is created using a technique that may not be compatible with all browsers. Sorry about that. For another page that has an even cooler crawling effect (sort of a "U R Lost" effect), check out http://members.aol.com/you/.
Subj: No Subject
I found your Web Page, it's great. We have netscape at my work although the pictures are very slow and I didn't have time to see it full screen!
I'll wait and pick a time where everyone has left for the day.
Catch you soon you big baboon

Doug, you're just a human gumdrop.
Subj: Loved the crap
Visited Doug's home page, I like the x-referenced "lever" quotes (or was the second made up?)... does the man ever sleep? If so, with whom?
Have only scanned the "crap" but like it... good thing I have 1.6 G's, after all of your badgering to get a modem (did I do good?), I have a feeling you (and mrjumbo) have a lot of catching up to do.
Subj: "Our readers write" re: blizzard pics and drink recipe
Your photos totally rock; I'm impressed!
Re: the drink recipe: I haven't tried it, but I would think that if you carefully pour the coffee and stop at the precise moment you can no longer see the penny, then it would only take an tiny, approaching-infinitesimal amount of vodka to make the penny visible again.
But maybe the idea is that the recipe adjusts itself as required. If you're hung over on New Year's Day, the less precisely you're capable of pouring the coffee, the more vodka you need. Clever!

Greg's page really looks professional. There must be an inverse relationship between the amount of hair one has and the quality of his web site.
Speaking of which, Acupuncture.com is featured among a few other Web reviews in the February issue of "The Net" magazine. It's the sex issue, actually. What the hell, as long as it sells. Just don't give it away for free I always say when surrounded by unapproachable women.
My page got an "A" and if you get the version of the magazine with the CD-ROM, you'll find about a third of my site mirrored.
Ken, I'm gonna kill build-a-card. How many hits are you up to per day now?

Well <flutter,flutter>, I jes don know why y'all ain't married yet, cher.
When a man has both brains and connections, as Ernst Lubitch might have pointed out--Does he have a Website?--everything else is wavy gravy.
