While searcing the web for anything on Milo I came across your site. I hope we have your current address as we are attempting to communicate with Milo's alumni much more frequently.

Subject: Thumbs Up B.A.D.! Date: Wed, 06 Aug 1997 00:26:59 -0700 From: Don Allen To: dochemp@c-zone.net Dave and Becky, You all are the greatest! 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. If you send mail to some of your admirers, how about adding my address to the list. My permanent address is donallen@tibn.com, but my present service provider is Sprint, where my Email address is donallen@sprintmail.com. Bye for now.

Your web site was recommended to me by a good friend and neighbor (curiously enough, also a dentist) as a spot to find ideas for my own (2 days old) web site. Jeez! Talk about hog (whoops!) heaven. I just love it, love it, love it! (Apologies to Lyle). I guess I'm just gonna have to buy some web building books and see what I can do to spruce up my own dowdy site. I suspect a good dose of Hemp will give me some ideas (hee, hee).

Subject: Web site music Date: Sun, 24 Aug 1997 17:19:19 -0400 From: "Eric Ball" 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.

Just checked out your Sturgis trip, Dave. Kinda makes me wish I was 30 years younger! The graphics are awesome. I'd like to be able to do that sort of thing, but don't even think about telling me how it's done--I have enough trouble just logging on.
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.
Aren't you supposed to be fixing teeth? What kinda image you giving for the young bucks just graduating?

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.

You never really learn to swear until you learn to PLAY GOLF! (this is mine)

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.
Thanks, Miriam Olsen clubs@sojourn.com (clubs stands for golf clubs, my husband the golf nut set up the on line service for us)

Incidently, my dad was a Marine Corps officer during WWII. He hated the marines when he was in the service, but now he lways wears his Marine Corps tie bar. Fortunately for him he didn't see combat, but would have been in the the force invading Japan if the bomb hadn't been dropped.

Hello Dr. Hemp love you web site and your talent I have been a long sufferer of yellow teeth I was wondering what was the shade of teeth in case #8 (you noted it was lightned 11 shades) I have talked with some dentists that have did some work and they seem to be reluctant to go white. with all the expense and time and some pain and discomfort I feel like you ought to go white shiny and the sky is the limit. you only live once maybe i should find a new dentist I want a white smile gorgeous and sexy not the yellow dentin I inherited from my parents In your opinion , what is a natural white in shades of color from dental labs and is the most believable thank you for your time TLedford@infoave.net

Please excuse the intrusion. Your email address was linked to a Relational Database site on the web. Consequently I thought I'd take a chance and write, perhaps you can help me.
I am looking to hire a Relational Database Systems Engineer with experience in logical and physical design and performance tuning on an Oracle, Sybase, Informix, or MS SQL RDBMS. This person will work independently, designing and managing the conversion(porting) from one customer datase to our Database and once ported, do the necessary performance tuning. In addition, a stong understanding of Unix will be required. This is an outstanding opportunity for someone to really develop and enhance their technical skill set and I hope you might be able to point me in the right direction for such talent.

This full time employee will be based in the Northeast (anywhere from Boston to Southern New Jersey) with one of the software industry's most recognizable Database companies. The salary would be up to $90,000 and the excellent benefits package would include matching 401K, Medical, dental and profit sharing.

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
