Hi Dave and Becky,

I discovered your site several months ago while searching for large scale train information. I often go to your sites for inspiration and reassurance that doing things the right way in our great country pays off. I deeply I admire you! I have four children ages 17 to 24 and I’ve instructed them to view your sites to better understand the importance of the American Dream, hard work, solid values and living life well. Your hobby interests and political views are similar to mine. I’ve been collecting G scale trains for years and being inspired by your sites I finally constructed my first (much more to come) garden railroad this summer (see attached). I also joined the Pennsylvania Live Steamers Association. I found a retired engineer in my neighborhood who has been building 7 ¼ gauge trains for years however, I am most intrigued by your 15” trains. My wife (Maryann) and I hope to move back to our home state of PA in a couple years. When we do we are building a 15” railroad! Later this summer I plan to start building a couple large remote control boats (hopefully with working cannons!) and my winter project is to work on my remote control planes.

My wife is the assistant director of nursing at a local nursing home. I use to be a hospital director then one day about 16 years ago I was sitting in my office thinking I need to do something different. I opened the phone book (we were still using phone books way back then…) and found an art school in Philly. I went there one evening. The only class open was sculpture so I signed up and for several years I studied there part-time. For the past eleven years I've been sculpting and consulting on church design. I have a 7,500 square foot studio close to home and ten minutes outside of Philly. Although I sculpt anything my niche is with churches of all denominations


I’ve been waiting to see your new diesel engine and would love to view your newest pages from your SVA/MILO/LLU event if you are comfortable giving me access. You guys are my heroes. Thanks! God bless and keep on truckin...

Hi Dave,


While cleaning up my emails I noticed I hadn't sent my July email response to your email. I put it in my draft folder and later assumed I sent it. I was wondering why I didn't hear back from you. Sometimes I worry about my memory but then I forget about it. :)

I hope both had a wonderful rest of your summer. Thank you for your kind words - if I had it all to do over again I think I might have chosen dentistry...

Since your email my wife and I visited the Pennsylvania Train Museum (PTM) in Lancaster, Pa. It was wonderful! We rode on their restored passenger line traveling past Amish farms while sipping a little local wine. PTM is doing an impressive job of restoration and development. We also attended the Pennsylvania Live Steamers (7+ guage) Fall Meet - outstanding trains. Between these two events I went to the "Rough and Tumble Engineer's Historical Association Thresherman's Reunion" also in Lancaster, Pa. - a steam engine enthusiast's heaven on earth - they had every imaginable steam powered piece of machinery. While visiting our son at college I went to the East Coast Large Scale Train Show in York, Pa and purchased several new G scale trains including HLW's new, "Laporte" 2-4-4 Forney. And last weekend we rode on 7+ and 15 inch guage trains at the Reading Society of Model Engineers Fall Open House on their 25 acre property in Berks County, Pa. The 15inch line and the beautiful Pennsylvania scenery were terrific. If you would like to see some of our photos from these events let me know and I'd be happy to send them.

As I mentioned previously you folks are an incredible inspiration. I'd like to begin documenting our (my wife's and mine) adventures, although far more tame than yours, and I was wondering if you were to start over would you go the route of a blog or stay with different websites as you have done? And why?

Thank you for permitting me to view your recent reunion. What an wonderful time you all must have had! It's pleasing to see people who choose to use the gifts God has given them for fellowship and to live life so well - absolutely outstanding! Keep it up! Get out there every day and live life to its fullest! Listen to wonderful music, laugh, share, love, exercise, worship, sing... live a joy-filled robust life every minute of every day because we were given life to LIVE not to put on reserve and because life is more brief than a liberals commitment to our constitution - and that is brief!

I like your new addition, the Plymouth engine. I hope you are planning to post info and photos on its construction. Also, I was wondering: Are these four engines the extent of your collection? Do you have any others? Are you planning any additions?

I remember reading a brief reason you chose 15 inch guage over others but if you don't mind please elaborate on this choice. As I previously mentioned, someday I want to build a large scale railroad and from what little I presently know a 24 inch guage seems as if it would allow greater stability. I'm very interested in knowing your thoughts on this. ?

Thank you both again for your commitment to living life well, sharing it with all of us and taking the time to spend with us. Hope you two are doing well.

God bless.

I am wondering if you could help me out; or tell me someone who might. my dad gave me an old child car seat. he thinks it was from the 30's or 40's. it is made of a brown tweed cloth with wooden arms and has metal hooks that you would hang it from the seat in the car. there are red, white and blue wooden beads across the front for the child to play with. the frame is metal and it can fold up.
there are 2 tags on it and a sticker from the commonwealth of pa dept of labor and industry #970. it was manufactured by bunny bear / boston mather specialty inc in everett, mass. would love to know the year and style of cars then and also the speed limits. please--any help would be appreciated!!!

Hello Becky and Dave,

I was shocked to discover that your beautiful web site is without the great sellection of music that I know you spent hours compiling for our benefit. I hope and wish that somehow it can return. Once we experience things that touch our hearts, it just isn't the same when such a great part is removed. Best of luck on some day reinstalling those great songs.

I have a couple of my Chevrolets on your Reading Room 3A and still feel you have one of the best web sites in the Nation. I have most recently added an award winning 1931 Model A Standard Roadster to my collection. So I will include it for you in this message.

B & D,
Hello and thank you very much for your informal invitation to your palace of wonderland.
I feel that trying to retort a worthy response to your question,of wanton,on our part (the viewer) to relate to you if we like said sites of yours would be crime.

I think.....no,let me correct that,I know that writting to you how I feel would be an injustice to you & me.

No matter how I script it, it will still have no value in the essence of the true meaning of the word and my experience (on the thrill I felt) going through your site(s)

To you,the injustice would be that you may feel that you may have not come across with your site as you may have wanted to. Thinking something like that would be unjust and the furthest thing from the truth.

I can not start to commence on how GREAT your sites were,from the Trains,to the Bikes. (Harleys) You do justice to the internet,plain and simple.lol.

I have not seen,nor even phantomed,that the possibility of such sites may exist. That I had the pleasure of seeing what I did with yours is only a testament to where the new age of the ��Super Information HighWay�� is headed.

Again,Thank You for such an enjoyable tour.

Dear Doc Hemp;

All I can say is thanks! Your site is entertaining, informative and most of all enjoyable. I came to your site via another site while I was looking for parts for a project my son and I are working on. I pretty much forgot about the parts and spent about an hour on your site. Needless to say it was not enough time and it is now book marked as a favorite and I will be back (Arnold).

Thanks Again

Dave & Becky - I found your site while researching Maurice Johnnassen and now my day(s) is shot while I explore your wonderfully funny and beautiful site. Big motorhead here (female, born in Detroit - it's in the blood). Racing fan, anything with a motor, but favors Nascar, but will really watch any vehicle race, oh hell I'll watch two guys roll marbles down a hill.

Your site has been cracking me up for nearly an hour - the linguistics section was so over my head I didn't understand anything until I got to the anal retentive part and nearly drowned in my swallow of tea! While I may not agree with everything you have to say I sure like the way you say it.

Now, I must get back to the laughter and pictures. I had a 1970 Triumph, Bonneville until a few years ago which I dearly loved, but with 11 fused vertebrae and permanent sciatic nerve root compression damage I had to let it go. But I could never take the smile off my face while I was on it. And still smile when I remember being on it.
Thanks for a great time.
Take Care

Dear Friends,
This has hit me very hard! Copie was such a HUGE part of our lives during our most formative years. Always a smile, .. a fantastic sense of humor. And he was the most intelligent of us all! (Sorry Astrid & Less) Copie never had to study for his 4.0 average ... I never studied either, but I was thankful for my 3.0! ... We were ping pong buddies ... After an hour & a half long battle, he took first place, at my expense, in the big tournament our Senior year in front of the whole school.

Copie was also the best athlete in our class ... he could sink to my ping pong level, beat me ... and then go out and quarterback our intramural football team .... (I'll never forget Richard Crowther knocking hell out of me there ... especially after I turned him into (George) Acres for sticking my head in the toilet and flushing it in the Jensen Hall bathroom!) Richard would pick me up and literally throw me into Copie from 20 feet away. .... I still look around for him every time I go into a rest room!

I am not trying to make light of the situation .. but this is what Copie was about ... he would get a big chuckle out of this I know .... he was one of the biggest influences on my life during our 4 years at SVA! .... Another great one we will all miss tremendously ... Becky's and my sympathies to his wonderful family!

If someone deems this worth sharing at the reunion on Saturday night, I would be pleased to be just a little part of our past with Copie and with all of you too ... Life is short ... No grudge is worth bearing . ..

I have left the religious accolades to those more righteously inclined, ...

Kindest regards to Nancy and all our other friends from SVA. ... I understand Bill Hooker and Astrid, Less, Wayne will all be making it back East ... I just can't .... made a community commitment almost a year ago for that weekend.

Hi Doc & Becky!
First of all, I want to say that I LOVE your website! It's loads of fun clicking here and there. I was also impressed with the time and effort you put into it. Me...Beyond reading e-mail and looking at other people's websites...I'm totally computer illiterate. (Nothing to brag about, mind you.) ;) Now, getting past the flattery, the reason I'm e-mailing you is that I found you when searching for info on Jay Leno's cars. I'm a middle school jouralism teacher and Corvette enthusiast who freelances as a writer for Vette magazine. Not having the knowledge (nor the desire) to get greasy and dirty fixing Corvettes ('cause it would also break my finger nails) leaves me with the problem of only being able to write "non-technical" articles. My usual are travel and event articles, but I'm trying to expand into other interesting non-technical areas. Soooooo, in my quest for story ideas, I got the fun thought that maybe my March vacation to Ventura (from Phoenix) might get me close enough to Jay Leno to do a story about him and his Corvette (assuming, of course, that he has one)! I'd love to show him and the car and get the story behind it, too. But - The question still is...Does he even HAVE a Vette in his collection? That's where you, Doc, come in. :)) Might you know the answer to this one or how I can find out?
Thanks! 'Looking forward to hearing from you.

I Really enjoyed your pictures of the 1998 races. My first ride in a Porsche was at age 10 and I've been in love with them ever since. A friend of mine was their to race his 906 on saturday (he drove it up from L.A.) He also had his 1972 914.6 on display in the Andial tent. Now he makes his living filming the current Porsche commercials. It was good to see Ed Archer in your photos.

Please indulge me and support them by visiting http://www.thevision.net/sandcp

For most of these students the internet was a mistery before this project. I only gave them a couple of starting points on web page design. The rest they learned by playing around. What you are going to see on the web page is a product of 7 days of classroom time. The groups worked in triads, and honestly, most of the students pulled their weight. In fact, if I had to evaluate this on an overall scale, I would say the writing is the worst part of the page. Obvious plagarism abounds, but - hey - that will be addressed. If I sound exited, its because I am. This assignment validated EVERY reason I became a teacher. The last student left the lab last night at 7:00 (that is 4 hours past school bell). The only frustration came from the fact that their was only one of me running around to troubleshoot problems. Please take a look and drop them a line. Thanks.

Hey Dr. Dave,

I have certainly enjoyed getting your notes to keep me apprised of where I need to focus my efforts. It won't be that difficult to find a good airplane. I also enjoyed your pic that you sent.

I am sending you a nice P-51 sound bite with this letter.

If you enjoy the sound of a Merlin, this will help get your juices flowing. If you are capable of playing wav files just download it and lend your ear. Perhaps we will meet from this before it is all over with.

I will be going out of town on business for 2 weeks, so I will probabaly wait till I have a chance to get back and talk seriously to the aircraft owners. I already have a few calls out. George Baker has got a VERY nice P-51D, that is in restoration, that I believe may have had an ownership change and is available now. I know of at least 3 others right now for sale, just need to make sure they are jump seat equipped.

Also I am moving to Mexico around Feb. timeframe so if I can't complete his search, by then, I will hand him off to someone who can. One other closing comment. I hope he has some time in an aircraft such as this. This isn't something you jut climb into and go. It could kill you quite easily. I will ASSUME that you know him well enough to know this isn't going to be a problem. Sometimes male ego and testosterone gets the best of some.

I sure hope we get to meet at some time, you seem very open and friendly, and regardless of what happens for an airplane, I thank you for that.

This is a true story.
I was hunting deer up in Eastern Oregon, and as the sun started to get lower in the west, I realized that I was LOST. I walked over a big ridge and was heading downhill, when I saw a light, I though great theres the camp, Wrong, it was a farm house. I walked up and knocked on the door, a very good looking farmers wife opened the door and said, hello can I help you, I told her I was lost, she said come on in, my husband and I are just sitting down for dinner and you can join us. Man I was really hungery and she had made a big pot of ham and green beans, boy did it smell good. We all sat down and she dished each of us up a dish, only problem was the portions were really SMALL, and I was REALLY hungry. It was obvious they were LITE eaters, and I was to embarrassed to ask for more. After dinner, we made small talk, and then the farmer said, We go to bed early around here and its about bedtime, we only have one bed, and if you like, you can sleep in our bed with us, I'll sleep in the middle and you and my wife can sleep on either side. I thought this was a little strange but I was really tired, so we all went to bed. In the middle of the night the farmer sat straight up in bed and hollared, that sounds like a chicken thief in my barn, he grabed his shotgun and ran off to the barn. The farmers wife rolled over to me and said," stranger nows your chance" Well I am not stupid, right, So I jumped out of bed and ran to the kitchen and finished off them green beans. Damm they sure were good....................

Hello, I have enjoyed your B.A.D. site (I'm a former combat pilot too, UH-1C's in Vietnam.)

I found the site looking for information about George Foreman's early years, as I am writing a biographical screenplay about Job Corps boxing coach Doc Broadus, who first trained him at the Pleasanton center -- and who almost certainly worked with Mr. Hemp.

Might you be able to offer me any kind of recollection or anecdote about George and Doc Broadus that might contribute toward such a film?

Thanks much, James Nathan Post Las Vegas NV

(Please use my AOL address to reply: JamesNPost@aol.com)

Thanks for your kind words. Being the combat pilot you were means a lot to me, THANK YOU for your efforts in Vietnam! I would or will be glad to help if I can.

Doc Broadus talked to my dad just a couple of weeks ago on the phone, yes - my dad did get George to Doc Broadus to start his training. My dad was amateur middle weight boxing champ in the Army Calvary (under Patton) or Army Air Academy in his divison. He was one of the first 3 Mr. America's in 1939 at age 19 the first year it was held. In 1940 they went to one. They are now back to 3 again.

I tell you this because it was while my dad was giving a lecture on his being Mr. America & physical fitness, boxing, healthful living, etc. in Oregon to the Oregon Job Corp group that George came up to him afterwards & they talked. George was cutting wood, his reputation as the toughest kid & street fighter was already a legend in the camp. My dad was VERY IMPRESSED with him & as he also as German growing up after the 1st www in Easton PA. was also a great street fighter. He didn't speak English till he was 7 yrs old.

My dad got him transferred to the Pleasanton at George's request. And eventually to Doc Broadus (who was a champ himself!) shortly after that.

There were 13 directors over a 2 yr period before my dad took over in Pleasanton & later Pittsburg CA. He was director for over 10 years I think. He developed a deep respect between himself & the rest of the staff & Job Corps constituents. 1) after being run down (attempted murder) & hit by a car & surviving & refusing to press charges. 2) facing down a street mugging = standing toe to toe & gun to gun right outside the Pittsburg facility (he said quote) " I am going to count to 3, you can turn & leave - I will not shoot, I will not call the police. at 3 or sooner you better shoot because I am going to kill you on 3! The mugger turned & fled, my dad kept his word. It spread into the community - all knew they could tell him anything & knew his word was iron. 3) An enormous disgruntled parolee burst into the front business office and past his secretary & into his office with a machete shouting "I'm gunna take your head off!" My dad on the phone paused, said just a moment please - raised his 44 magnum 4" & pointed it in his face as his arm was raised to strike & told him " FREEZE! If you move even one muscle I WILL KILL YOU!" The guy froze till dad finished his converstation with the entire staff looking on. They arressted the guy. I asked him, if he had flinched would you have killed him - he said absolutely & he knew it! He said they had to put him away as he was a mental case & he was just glad he didn't harm his secretary on the way in.

My dad has had a series of strokes, can't talk well at all, can't read or write anymore, it is really sad. He just turned 78. It will be hard to get stories from him (he has many trapped in his brain) but his wife Getty might be able to help if he can bring up the subject so she can remember an event.

George himself might rememeber some .... people get rich & famous, move on & forget those many times that were there on their road up. George was so talented he would probably have made on his own anyway without the Job Corps or Doc Broadus.... so maybe those years aren't very important to him.

Good luck

Hello Dr. Hemp,
I'm sure that you don't remember me, but you knew my Dad, Frenchy, a long time ago. I found your "B.A.D. Chariots" web site a couple of months ago while looking for pictures of cars and planes. I told my Dad about it not really knowing or remembering who you were (I was just a kid when I lived in Redding). I figured that my Dad might know you. You may have heard from him already because I gave him your web site URL.

It seems like I remember that you had a Pantera or some other exotic car when I was a kid in Redding. Is that right? If it wasn't you, then it was another doctor or dentist that my Dad knew back then. I remember drooling over that car.

I'm now an Army Blackhawk Helicopter pilot living in Hawaii. I've been flying the Medevac unit here for over three and a half years, and also flew Medevac in Korea for a year prior to this. I'm leaving here in June for a month off in Oregon (with Dad) and then to move to Ft. Rucker, Alabama to be a helicopter instructor pilot. I'll be in Roseburg for the Graffiti Days Show and Cruise. Do you ever go to that? It's one not to be missed by any auto enthusiasts.

I plan to spend another 1 to 3 years in the Army before I try to move on to a civilian flying job. Do you have any connections there with any air ambulance companies? I'm sure that it will be nearly impossible to find a job like that in Oregon, where we want to live. My father-in-law lives in Redding, so I'm sure that my wife would be delighted if we were to settle there. She was born and raised for part of her childhood in Corning.
I love all of the cars, planes, and motorcycles on your web site. I've still never had the time to sit and look at all of it, but I see it a little at a time. My Dad is attempting to sell cars from a web site, and I have recently starting working on one of my own for my family. You should look at my Dad's if you haven't already seen it, and look at the page on my site devoted to my work. There are some helicopter pictures. There is also a picture with my Dad in it on the bottom of my Christmas Photos page. I will eventually try to add a page devoted to general aviation too. I've been a fixed wing pilot since 1982, long before I joined this crazy Army (what was I thinking?).

I hope that all is well with you and your family. I'll probably stop in Redding to visit my father-in-law sometime this summer, so I'll get to see the town where I was raised once again. I'm hoping to fly a rented plane down from Oregon, but I may have to settle for driving since my wife just had our forth child and it's hard to rent a plane that big in Roseburg. Below you'll find the site addresses that I referred to.

It looks like rain again. and by the way the Beave and I want to ride 3 flags with you guys and of course we can use your new trailer to haul them to Mexico for the ride. Right. Even if you won't ,can't,or are way to weak for a 700mi. day and must hit checks and all the good stuff, I am most happy to show off your trailer. I will rent it for a nominal fee and I do mean nominal like a penny or less a mile. Seriously why have a Harley trailer when you have a Harley? No wonder you have trouble looking at your little Old Pee Pee. I can't talk. My love handles are so large and loose I can't get my hands around them to scratch my ass.

Because it's a 26 ft car trailer for the studebaker, not the Harleys = a wide body like me - and NO you road butchers can't touch it - even if you come out to see it - you can't touch it! I am setting it up as the king of trailers - very high tech & organized, clean, beautiful - I am only keeping the car just so I have a reason for the trailer! something to put in it - this is what I bought the big dually for - for this trailer..

I am a web programmer and busness owner in Mt Shasta...also a workshop presenter. I am teaching a "business on the internet" class up in Weaverville and Hayfork the next two weekends with 25 small business owners in that area who are interested in establishing business websites. One of my objectives is to introduce these folks to the web resources, programmers, hosting services, etc. available in their area, which obviously includes Redding. I see your name pop up on many of the Redding sites I've surfed to (including your cool Harley site) and since you seem to be part of the local web scene, I venture to inquire...

Do you know of Redding (or Trinity County) area website programmers who would like to visit the class I'm teaching to present a related topic, explain their services and meet these potential clients? Who should I contact?

Doc Hemp,

I've have enjoyed your web site. I especially got a good hoot from the MAGNA SUPERCHARGERS FOR HARLEY page. The word "Magna" is what got my attention since I drive a 1985 Honda V65 Magna. What I think is funny as hell is that it takes $2400 and up to get 101hp out of an FLHTC, when for a few hundred more you could buy a complete motorcycle that has more hp and handles well in the corners to boot!

My original route to your site was a search on "Pantera"; I was trying to explain to my 10 year old son what a Pantera is. Nice pics.

And I see you do some fine shooting with a model 41 S&W. I have one of those too, including the long compensated barrel. Haven't done a lot of target shooting, but when I got out of the Army and went to college in 1980, I shot rimfire metallic silhouette matches at the local club and managed to win enough money each month to feed myself. Oh, and I'm jealous of your range. No way I'll ever be able to do that around Atlanta, too built up.

Anyway, I enjoyed it and thought I'd let you know.

I came across your webpage(s) by accident a couple of months ago when I was in Florida. My brother had gotten a new computer, and wanted to know how to get on the Internet. After we logged on, I was demonstrating how search engines work. I was trying to show him how you could come up with any subject and find webpages for them. For some reason I came up with "old cars", I believe it was, or maybe "antique cars" -- I don't remember which one it was for sure. Anyhow, one of the first things that came up was the Studebaker Club, which I then clicked on and began seeing all of the old Studebakers. "So now you know [that Dave and Becky were] the rest of the story", as Paul Harvey says. As I write this, I'm listening to "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly", from the B.A.D. Chariots page. Granny Hemp on the Harley is something else! And I love the music room -- with all the good nostalgic sounds. My hat is off to you guys. Keep up the good work! You make surfing the web a real pleasure. I wish I lived near you all so you could teach me how to be creative on the net. But, unfortunately, East Tennessee is a long way from California. I live in Knoxville, a big country town, whose main claims to fame is being the Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, home of the University of Tennessee, the Tennessee Volunteers football team, and site of the 1980 World's Fair. Other than that, this is just hillbilly heaven. Well, I reckon I'll sign off now. Thanks for the memories. Keep up the good work -- you brighten a lot of days. Sincerely, Don Allen p.s. Speaking of search engines, you might already know about this one, but I really like "www.dogpile.com". If you are patriotic, check out "www.ptialaska.net/~swampy". Let me know if you like them, or already knew about them. If you know any real good sites, I would appreciate your passing them on.

Subject: Web site music Date: Sun, 24 Aug 1997 17:19:19 -0400 From: "Eric Ball" eball@firstsaga.com To: dochemp@c-zone.net Doc, I've been trying to add music to my new site for 2 days now. Everything works fine when I use the web stuff on my hard drive, but when I upload contents of my web directory to the web, the music doesn't work (neither embedded nor linked) and Communicator 4.02 says I need a plug-in for embedded music and it trys to download linked music. I have to assume that, since I pirated your code and modified it to suit, that maybe I have to put an executable or something else on the web site to make it work. Any suggestions? -- _____________________________________________________________ The trouble with doing nothing is not knowing when you're finished. Eric L.

It was the first time I had been able to hear one of his lectures. It was great! Even though the presentation was on a Sunday, there were a total of 48 very interested dentists in attendance. I have been a big user of 3M products, however , I left the meeting with about 350 dollars worth of merchandise. He reallly has a very down to earth practical approach to this art and science of bondodontics. Regards, Jim Meares Va. Beach, Va.

Ray, fantastic on the bondodontists chat & or reading (e-mail room) people love reading the e-mails at their leasires, the chat room would be live - the e-mail room you could post all the questions & answers you give! would really help the shy ones out that draw a blank at meetings. i am heading to a 3 day week in the next 2 years = am on my 3rd year of 4day weeks now. tried an associate for a few years = too much confusion in the office. keep in touch, dave
p.s. i added his e-mail in our reading room 3 - overflow 3a room. - & this one too.

and you have single handedly changed the face of dentistry in the 20th century more than anyone else alive & earned every dollar you have made through your lecturing! go out tommorow & buy that expensive toy & reward yourself for all of us!!!! doc hemp

Check out the Dr. Bob page in the September CDA Journal. There's supposed to be a cartoon of a Harley toillustrate the article. Charley sez he's never ridden one and has only seen one from a distance--a safe distance, at that--so the accuracy of the drawing may not be what a grizzled old veteran like yourself might approve of.

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

He who hesitates is probably right.

Never do card tricks for the group you play poker with.

No one is listening until you make a mistake.

Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

The colder the X-ray table, the more of your body is required on it.

The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread.

The severity of the itch is proportional to the reach.

To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.

To succeed in politics, it is often necessary to rise above your principles.

Two wrongs are only the beginning.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

A preacher visits an elderly woman from his congregation. As he sits on the couch he notices a large bowl of peanuts on the coffee table. "Mind if I have a few" he asks? "No not at all" the woman replied. They chat for an hour and as the preacher stands to leave, he realizes that instead of eating just a few peanuts, he emptied most of the bowl. "I'm totally sorry for eating all your peanuts, I really just meant to eat a few." "Oh that's all right" the woman says."Ever since I lost my teeth, all I can do is suck the chocolate off them!!!!

An old man of ninety was sitting on a park bench crying. A policeman noticed this and asked him why he was crying. "Well," says the old fellow, "I just got married to a twenty-five year old woman. Every morning she makes me a wonderful breakfast and then we make love. In the afternoon she makes me a wonderful lunch and then we make love. At dinner time she makes me a wonderful supper and then we make love."
The policeman looks at the old man and says, "You shouldn't be crying! You should be the happiest man in the world!"
So the old man says, "I know! I'm crying because I don't remember where I live!

Orville Harp wrote: Really enjoyed your "bike" trip. Some of the road you traveled on was quite familiar to me. A thought passed through my mind to send 'Doc' on ahead of us to pick out the good eating spots. For years I would drive into a service station and ask the attendant where is a good place to eat. Finally, I got smart to the fact they probably live on Hamburgers......so that was a dumb question. So many times, a good eating place doesn't stay in business too long. For years we kept sending people to a special place in Long Beach. When we ate there the people stood in line to get in. After ten years we went back and it was terrible. One time we were traveling north of Bieber and stopped in at a tiny Cafe in Adin. We ordered a Roast Beef sandwich. As we were eating we observed the lady bringing out fresh baked pies. (right out of the oven). So, we started sampling each one. That was the highlight of our summer and many years to come. We are planning a "fly fishing trip" on the Green River, Oct. 10, 11, and 12. If you have any interest in fly fishing that is like dieing and going to Heaven. 19,000 fish per mile. You float down a 7 mile canyon. No roads. This is the country that Butch Cassidy and the other outlaws lived in. The trip down the river is quite beautiful. Thanks for including us on your traveling list......We enjoyed the trip too.... Have a great day........Bye for now Orville and Bettie

Orville & Bettie, I am green with envy & cried a green river of tears! Have fun on your trip - although why you'd rather go fly fishing instead of trout fishing is beyond me - hee-hee! Have a ton of fun!!! Keep in touch - Uncle Dave!!

Hi, Dr. Hemp, I'm Don Randall's daughter, Miriam Olsen. He asked me to log on to your web site, and I'm glad I did! Being a 1 person lab I am sheltered from the rest of the dental world. Even the sales people don't bother to come around (there are advantages to being on my own!). So, I turn to the internet to explore what's new in dental.
I'm thrilled when I find another who holds the same philosophy as my own . I was also thrilled to hear music on your web site! It's a first for me. I thought I'd have to download something.I know very little about this computer world we live in today! But, more than my dad (gotta love 'em anyway!) He did'nt want to sit down at my computer. He would hold the mouse like he holds a baby,(with his hands behind his back looking over someone elses shoulders!) So, I printed some of your pages for him to read. Of course, I ran out of paper in the process. I ran out of staples too! Your web site is enormous, with lots to do. And I enjoyed it.
I run a very small operation, with 2 clients (brother and sister) and they keep me busy. It's suppose to be part time for me, but I always spend more time perfecting and taking one last look before the case goes back. There's not an hour in the day I haven't covered yet working in the lab. Being a mother also enjoyably complicates things. So, I'm in and out working when I can. Speaking of motherhood, I need to get back to my family.
I'll back on your web site again, to see what's new. Oh by the way as I was reading your philosophy page, I wondered if your beliefs are the same as mine with bleaching...NOT SO WHITE, Your teeth will loose the vitality and become more opaque. And don't forget, that coffee every morning will darken them again! I believe in preventitive maintanence, that which occurs at home in the bathroom with a toothbrush and dental tape.

Hi! How are you? I am Raquel Costa Martins and I am studing dentistry at UERJ- "Universidade estadual do Rio de Janeiro" in Brazil. Today i got luck to find your site. It is very interesting. I am like this part of the odontology that we can see a beautiful result after the treatment. Unfortunately, in my country the reality is very diferent..., the priority is to restore cavities, periodonty,and a lot of exodonty. The esthetics is left behind because of the economics problems. I will always look for more informantions about you work. Congratulations!!!
Raquel Costa Martins
Dear Dave, I looked up Schick Technologies Inc. and they are being traded on NASDAQ. Today's price was 21 3/4. 52 week high was 30 3/4 and the lo was 15 1/2. I guess their stock went up a bit in September as they acquired 5% of another company (Photobit). Now might be a good time to buy some.
Gave Tom the colored image of my teeth -- he couldn't figure out what it was a picture of. Some radiologist . . . . Says he's heard about the digital radiology (recently from Ken Haynes, the veterinarian).
So far the desensitizing varnish is great - will see how it goes once it all wears off. I'll definitely keep you posted.
Many thanks, Jan

Sailor here. I saw the pic of you with the Mustang (looked like a late E model), I didn't realize you were a rivet bucker. Cool. I am an A&P also. Started life as a Navy aircraft engine mech, then an aircaraft maint. specialist (WO-1), retired as a helo jockey. I did some (seems like a lot) of work for Western Commander when they had a shop in San Jose (late 1960s). They had the contract to do the restorations for the "Flying Lady" in Gilroy, and I got the oppurtunity to work on airplanes I had only dreamed of.F4U, F6F, F8F, P-51, etc. I had a lot of experience on T-28, T-34, T-33, E-18 Beechcraft and had done some restoration for the Confederate Air Force in Harligen, Tx. (me and Red Scarbourgh did the engine on the Jap-Zero and tuned the 1820s on the B-17).

So, anyway, while at Western Commander I had the scarist experience of my life (except when the drunk guy hit Diane and I on the Harley), I flew back seat with Charlie Applegate in the turbo P-51. This monster has a Rolls Royce centrificial nine burner can in it and an exhust about the size of a garbarge can pushing a twenty foot Hamilton Standard. It does motor!! Charlie is a little guy that normally looks a banker nerd, or a book keeper of some sort, bald head, wire rim glasses and all. However, when he flys this dude turns into the Red Baron, riding pants and all, and seem to think he is in combat. We were almost to Santa Cruz before wheel doors closed. To make a long story short, I thought I was going to need a clean flight suit before we got back. I just hought I would share that you, to let you know that your Dad does know people that have had real jobs.

THE BURNING QUESTION A Charlotte, North Carolina man, having purchased a case of rare, very expensive cigars, insured them against ... get this ... fire. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of fabulous cigars, and having yet to make a single premium payment on the policy, the man filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the man stated that he had lost the cigars in "a series of small fires". The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason that the man had consumed the cigars in a normal fashion. The man sued... and won! In delivering his ruling, the judge stated that since the man held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable, and also guaranteed that it would insure the cigars against fire, without defining what it considered to be "unacceptable fire," it was obligated to compensate the insured for his loss. Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the judge's ruling and paid the man $15,000 for the rare cigars he lost in "the fires." After the man cashed his check, however, the insurance company had him arrested...on 24 counts of arson! With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used as evidence against him, the man was convicted of intentionally burning the rare cigars and sentenced to 24 consecutive one year terms!

I enjoyed your home page. What brand and model . 22 pistol do you use? I am going to buy a . 22 pistol for target shooting. I will probably go to an outdoor range maybe every 4 to 6 weeks at the most. I am considering used Rugers, but I saw two new pistols, a Smith & Wesson and a Colt, which looked very nice. All the ones I am considering are automatics. I have a .380 hammerless colt automatic that I am considering trading in. I have been quoted $175 for the Colt. The new pistols run about $230. The lowest priced Ruger I have seen is $195. Would you give me your advice on what gun would be best for my use? Thanks a lot. Paul.

Saw your great website as I searched for a health club with a swimming pool in Redding.Am searching for a pool that my niece can go with her 2 yr old little girl a few times a week. The relative works full time and I'd like someplace she and child could stop by after work for a swim. (around 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Would your schedule accomodate that? Also, do you have child care. If so, what is the cost. Thanks for any info. Judy Cosky jcosky@az.com

Dear Doc,
Good to hear from you again. We are just continuing to write Document Management Software for the Federal Government and others. Work-Work-Work.
I am listening to some of your Elvis tunes as I type this. We now have a 1.5mbs T-1 line directly to the internet so we are on quite a bit.
Our Web Site is scheduled to come on-line around May 1, 1998 and will be "KILLER" (music, video etc.). However as always we will have to go some to catch you.
Hope everything in business and life are treating you well.
Thanks for the message and we will continue to monitor the DOC HEMP site for the latest innovations.

Hi Guys!
Heard a rumor that y'all were about ready to throw an El Nino party - we can bring some buckets, caulking , etc. Judy abandoned me Wed for one of her "metropolitan adventures" - pooch & I have been getting along great - I think she may be taking lessons from "Buddy" re house training, however. Wonder what the "ovalcam" will pick up next week!! Keep your powder dry!! Ted
