    • By now I'm sure that you have heard all the, "You
      know you're a redneck" jokes. Here are some takes on
      how Southern "folk" look at their Northern


      1) You think
      barbeque is a verb meaning "to cook outside."
      2) You
      think Heinz Ketchup is SPICY!
      3) You don't have any
      problems pronouncing "Worcestershire Sauce"
      4) You don't know what a moon pie is.
      5) You've
      never, ever eaten okra, fried or boiled.

      YOU JUST

      6) You have no idea what a
      polecat is.
      7) You would rather have your son become a
      lawyer than grow up to get his own TV fishing
      8) Instead of referring to two or more people as
      "y'll," you call them "you guys," even if both of them
      are women.
      9) You have never planned your summer
      vacation around a gun-n-knife show.
      10)You can't spit
      out the car window without pulling over to the side
      of the road and stopping.

      YANKEE IF:

      11) You don't have any hats in your
      closet that advertise feed stores.
      12) You think more
      money should go to important scientific research at
      your university than to pay the salary of a head
      football coach.
      13) The last time you smiled was when
      you prevented someone from getting on an on-ramp to
      the highway.
      14) You can do your laundry without
      15) None of your fur coats are

      Ahhhh.....just a little humor to start the day


    • I like your assessment and support your plea for keeping this party clean. This is no place for illinformed, illmannered, and mentally retarded individuals who have a personal ax to grind.

    • Not offense taken. Different strokes for

      As to PKD, I think it will make money for those that
      own it. Perhaps, not as much as other stocks.
      Perhaps, more? Mangement is deficient but that doesn't
      mean the market won't lift this boat eventually.

      In fact, I have my eye own buying some, myself. Not
      at Ezgreen's scalper price but, at something closer
      to $4. May not get it but, Hey, there are plenty of
      alternatives. I just can't buy them all.

    • I would hardly put kollmnh in a category with KRK
      (not saying you are necessarily). Kollmnh is polite,
      informative, and sticks to his assesments. Khan on the other
      hand is rude, illinformed, and changes his mind.

      Plus, you'd never here kollmnh say something like "In
      my country, you would bow down to me", or "In my
      country, I am a Prince".

      Could be, but in this
      country, he's just an asshole.

      Now I pray for this
      board that he doesn't make another appearance, and bore
      all of you to death.

    • decks scrubbed...we're heading out to sea...still time to jump aboard the good ship PKD!!!

    • I've looked at the TA and am concerned that you
      may be missing a head fake in what is to be a
      correction. 5.25 may be doable, near term but, no more than

      The stochs just re-crossed, but only after a very
      minor pullback from extended highs. I seee a
      retracement to 4-4.25. That should be a new entry point.

      After all, in spite of the accolades now directed to
      PKD management and the brand new shiny veneer of
      'transformation', this co. hasn't miraculously improved itself.
      It's still the same old ball and chain, debt laden
      outfit that will continue to lose money until it can
      employ something other than a rig or two in the Caspian.
      Hell, even when it finanlly does make money ( mid next
      year, at the earliest), it will need to pray that the
      good times, last a LONG time, so that they can bring
      some bucks to the bottom line and pay down debt BEFORE
      the cycle turns down, again.

      Of course, they
      could instead, begin to show some mangement prowess by
      selling some assets at the top of the market, rather than
      buying more. Wouldn't that just piss you off to see them
      buying again, rather than selling?

      For now, 3
      times tangible book is plenty for PKD.
