Wallowing with the HAMS




See, I come by it naturally! These are actual pictures of me at age 9, on the farm, with my two favorite things in the entire world (at that time); kittens and hogs!

That old sow was my best friend for a couple of years, she followed me around like she was a dog. She even let me get into her pen when she had piglets, and pick them up. Only my Aunt’s insistence kept her out of the house!

It’s only natural, once I found the world of HAMS (most of them swine – though not nearly as ethical as that old sow), that I’d take to them like a hog to a wallow!

btw, note the KC 'A's hat!

Wow, Evvy, you certainly were overweight, even at that young age! Have you been overweight all your life? Did it ever occur to you that some or all of your health problems might be related to being overweight? Why haven't you ever dieted seriously? Let's see, Evvy and Billy are the same age. Evvy is overweight and in poor health, but Billy has never been overweight and is in good health. What is the probability that this is due merely to coincidence? (25%)
Also, Evvy, for someone who claims to be a writer, you certainly don't use very good grammar or punctuation. For example, the following is a run-on sentence:
"That old sow was my best friend for a couple of years, she followed me around like she was a dog."
It should either be two sentences, or the comma should be a semicolon. How do you expect people to take you seriously as a writer when you can't write properly? We would expect this if you were a licensed ham operator, but you're not, so you have no excuse.

Spoken like a true asshole, Billy.

As you know Bill, I try to never sink to your level by taking your 'bait'. However I feel it is to everyone's benefit that I point out:

1)I was born w/a genetic disorder (HH) that contributes to my life long weight problems, which btw,is the least of my health issues.

2)I'd much rather be physically unhealthy than have the probs you have.

You are spiritually bereft, exhibit social pathology, and mental & emotional instablity. All of which you often demonstrate by splattering your vitrol, (projection, splitting, etc.) all over the air waves and the internet.

So, most people (including me) would NOT consider you to be in good health, in any sense of that phrase...

Yeah, Evvy, I've known people all my life who made excuses for why they're fat. All a bunch of rationalization for why they lack the self-discipline to push themselves away from the dinner table and to exercise. Go ahead and call me all the names you want; I'll just consider the source.

Here is an informative link that explains HH for those so fortunate to not have heard about it before now. http://www.mostgene.org/gd/gdvol14c.htm

Thanks R.F. Burns

But this LOT are not the least bit interested in a genetic condition that killed my sister, probably caused my maternal biological mother's death from Alzheimers, has affected me my entire life and might be somthing they or their relatives might be diagnosed with on day!

The link you gave does give the 'basics' about HH, but dna research has gone far beyond that info now, and the 'mapping' is still in process.

If you REALLY want LOTS of links and info on HH, please visit:

In what way was the sow "ethical"? Outside of Orwells's _Animal_Farm_ it's not a word usually applied to the barnyard. What were you thinking about when you said that?

No break for poets! You have chosen a hard discipline, and every word must count. This is your cross: bear it.
