"I'm not lawyer but I don't think a mistrial can be appealed at the appellate court level because a mistrial is like a + and - cancelling each other. In essence the trial was a non trial because no verdict was rendered and to correct that…"

On a lighter note, I would really like to see Payton Manning win this contest and go out a winner. Cam is a great athlete but I can not stand his arrogance. My call Denver 27 Panthers  23. Enjoy!Continue

    Migration Update

    The elves of the Ludington Torch were hopeful that we could move from our current Ning 2.0 network to the Ning 3.0 network shortly after our five year anniversary, but we have got news from them back that they are not currently doing any new migrations to the higher platform at this time.  We surmise that there has been problems with the migrations of other Ning sites, because some things do not transfer very well or at all, including videos and group modules.

    Downloading Videos

    Want to download videos for a thread or just to add to our Videos library, but are having a hard time figuring it out?  It's not hard once you know how to do it.  First you will need the Video's "Embed" code; on a typical video site like Youtube they will have a "share" button you need to click, you will then see an "Embed" button you need to click.  You will see the code all in blue, you need to "copy" (as in copy and paste) this code by going to your copy command.

    Now go to the…
