All hail jsharr - the new snowy.

Well, with snowy being separated from her computer, a new mod was inevitable. So, once again, they went down to Dallas to recruit.

jsharr - congratulations! You'll have to fill us in on the wild mod parties you have with Jon and Marty.

Congrats on your new gig! Are you going to buy a new Mercedes-Benz with the extra money you'll be making?

Welcome to the party jsharr.

On a side note, Blue Jays, did I see you posting on one of the crotch rocket forums? Same name and same posting style.

Thanks guys. I am going to see if I can get a white star in a blue field. Looks so much better. And comparing me to Snowy is just oh so wrong on so many levels. What did that woman do to deserve such a harsh comparison?

LowCel...riding on two wheels is what I love to do! As much as I enjoy my motorcycle...it's been getting infrequent use because of the overwhelming percentage of "leisure time" my bicycles are garnering.

Usually mods are created because someone didn't say no quick enough. The job of a moderator requires someone with infinite patience, the wisdom of Soloman and is willing to work cheap (REALLY CHEAP). For this, you receive the gratitude of the sane people who know what it is like.

I would thank you jsharr - but I am just not that sane... (honest, thank you all you mods for a hard job well done!)

Glad to see it go to someone very helpful ~ good luck with it. Depending on the subject, Modding a forum takes a real consistent committment, and you are to be commended. I'm trying myself to find the time to do this in another forum I'm planning...

To be fair, it's his son that does all the work. I hear Jeff just does the holding and fetching while the kid types witty retorts!

Smart kid, he must take after his mother.

Congrats on the job, lil' buddy!

Yes, it's true, they'll make anyone a mod these days.

But just like his riding, Jsharr will farm out his moderating work to a 13 year old Pakistani kid.

I don't see the point of wanting to be a mod. Is it some kind of power play? It seems like work to me. I guess if it gets you out of cutting the grass or something like that.

Wait, there is no grass in Texas.

Be quiet Fred or I will put Mabarak on the bike with team orders to do the crushing of your soul. Not even Motorcycle Greggo can drop Mabarak when he is in soul crushing mode.
