My Friends Analysis

The man above was a murderer, the man below was a thief;

And I lay there in the bunk between, ailing beyond belief;

A weary armful of skin and bone, wasted with pain and grief.

My feet were froze, and the lifeless toes were purple and green and gray;

The little flesh that clung to my bones, you could punch it in holes like clay;

The skin on my gums was a sullen black, and slowly peeling away.

I was sure enough in a direful fix, and often I wondered why

They did not take the chance that was left and leave me alone to die,

Or finish me off with a dose of dope--so utterly lost was I.

But no; they brewed me the green-spruce tea, and nursed me there like a child;

And the homicide he was good to me, and bathed my sores and smiled;

And the thief he starved that I might be fed, and his eyes were kind and mild.

Yet they were woefully wicked men, and often at night in pain

I heard the murderer speak of his deed and dream it over again;

I heard the poor thief sorrowing for the dead self he had slain.

I'll never forget that bitter dawn, so evil, askew and gray,

When they wrapped me round in the skins of beasts and they bore me to a sleigh,

And we started out with the nearest post an hundred miles away.

I'll never forget the trail they broke, with its tense, unuttered woe;

And the crunch, crunch, crunch as their snowshoes sank through the crust of the hollow snow;

And my breath would fail, and every beat of my heart was like a blow.

And oftentimes I would die the death, yet wake up to life anew;

The sun would be all ablaze on the waste, and the sky a blighting blue,

And the tears would rise in my snow-blind eyes and furrow my cheeks like dew.

And the camps we made when their strength outplayed and the day was pinched and wan;

And oh, the joy of that blessed halt, and how I did dread the dawn;

And how I hated the weary men who rose and dragged me on.

And oh, how I begged to rest, to rest--the snow was so sweet a shroud;

And oh, how I cried when they urged me on, cried and cursed them aloud;

Yet on they strained, all racked and pained, and sorely their backs were bowed.

And then it was all like a lurid dream, and I prayed for a swift release

From the ruthless ones who would not leave me to die alone in peace;

Till I wakened up and I found myself at the post of the Mounted Police.

And there was my friend the murderer, and there was my friend the thief,

With bracelets of steel around their wrists, and wicked beyond belief:

But when they come to God's judgment seat--may I be allowed the brief.

, my settings are the dfuaelt. Must be broker differences but now that I look at it, yeah, it does seem rather weird, my account only experienced the loss on June 8 while the official account ran into a string of losses around that date. You could contact MorpheusFX and ask them to analyze what could have resulted in such differences I just checked and my account is running with the news filter enabled and GMT is correctly configured; I don't know, perhaps their news filter is not enabled or the GMT is incorrectly configured on the MorpheusFX account? If you have the time for it, you can check the high impact news times versus the trades taken in the MorpheusFX account it should not trade 30 mins before and after news that affect the currencies involved. x x

Our day was sunny and almost 60 dreeegs -- jackpot :) The kiddos rode bikes and played tennis. DH skied (as he does every weekend until the mountains close down for the season). I did a little gardening (woot)...and now I get to look at your lovely pix :) Thanks!

HiI used ClassExplorer in an application that aaneyzls in depth the contents of Flex apps and modules.With Flex4, and or last versions of FP, the class crashes, because information seems to be missing, such as multiname which may be null on some classes.If I patch your code to avoid crashes, with continue added inside loops, then I am only able to discover classes from flash/flex framework, not from my own SWF with its custom classes.This really breaks my app, and I really need it.Do you have a solution please ?Thanks very much for helping x x

My wife and i felt absolutely reielved Michael could finish off his research using the ideas he grabbed out of the weblog. It's not at all simplistic to simply always be releasing methods most people have been making money from. So we discover we now have the website owner to thank for that. The illustrations you have made, the easy site navigation, the relationships you help create it's got everything excellent, and it's facilitating our son and us imagine that this content is exciting, which is certainly rather essential. Thank you for all!

Kate, that Bald Eagle is gorgeous! I have never seen one in the wild aluothgh they nest around my Tennessee home. Those water shots are spectacular! Is your family the only one who uses this park? There never seems to be anyone else around (unless that solitary figure on the beach is not a member of your party.)
