They were discovered by the Brits for their attributes way back in imperial times and they've been hand picked and trained by them ever since. British officers go from village to village and hold competitions and pick the cream of the crop. It's something they aspire to and its an honor to be chosen...

Nepalise soldiers that don't adhere to the Geneva convention. Love seeing shite on these guys.. They have legendary stamina due to the thin air they where born and raised in. Anyone served with these guys/ have some good stories to share?
Saw this today which made me think about them:

Saw him twice. Depends on time and place. Very mellow music. He starts with whiskey river and that's about his only lively song. He's best suited for a small outdoor afternoon setting to me. Saw him at the starplex amphitheater in Dallas at night and seemed very dead, and at Billy bobs in Ft Wort...

Grew up on the trace on the south end. Trace ain't dull, Jack. My favorite parts are Natchez to Port Gibson in the far south end and Jackson falls, TN to Nashville on the far north end. Lived in Nashville too.

The one on the trace could be passible with a little maintenance. The approaches are all silted up. I don't think the park service wants the hassle of patrolling it anymore. It's been that way for at least 10 years. ...

Yes from the area. Spent a lot of time all over the trace growing up. Clear springs, homochitto, indian village, emerald mound, vburg battle fields etc also. My kids told me my childhood seems like it was a continuous summer camp. Come to think of it I agree. Wish there was any realistic way to prov...

These are very low concrete bridges poured over a shallow/ sandy creek bed. Cant pass them when the water rises.
Ive only seen two. One off the Natchez trace near Natchez and one on Thompson creek near St. Francisville. Anyone know of any others?

It all starts with the parents. Educators can't go home with them. Kids need two parents that love one another and the parents need to value education. Don't have kids if you don't want to be parent and life long spouse to the mother/ father.
Popular culture erodes this fact. We are scared to of...

Have a couple. Not a big deal. Known them since way before they figured out they were gay. Don't care. The whole world knew it before they did. The thought grosses me out and wouldn't want that life for my children, but it's not any of my businesses. Not gonna "unfriend" them over it. ...
