I've been walkin' these streets so long
Singin' the same old song
I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Broadway
Where hustle's the name of the game
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain
There's been a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Well, I really don't mind the rain
And a smile can hide all the pain
But you're down when you're ridin' the train that's takin' the long way
And I dream of the things I'll do
With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe
There'll be a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Rhinestone cowboy
Gettin' cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo

Rhinestone cowboy
Gettin' cards and letters from people I don't even know

Moving parts in rubbing contact require lubrication to avoid excessive wear. Honorifics and formal politeness provide lubrication where people rub together. Often, the very young, the untraveled, the naive, the unsophisticated deplore these formalities as 'empty' or 'meaningless', or 'dishonest' and scorn the use of them. No matter how 'pure' their motives, they thereby throw sand into machinery that does not work too well at best.

Stopping People from Using Your Images on their Web Pages. (Bandwidth Theft)

If you have some nice graphics on your site, you might notice that other webmasters, usually newbies are having their readers pull the graphics directly from your site. If your bandwith is metered, then you are paying to support somebody else's site! Depending on how busy that other site is, it can also place additional load on your server.

Something I've been noticing lately... and I'm occasionally guilty of it myself. No longer. From now on, I'll post a link to the site, or copy the pic and use it locally.

Anne Heche, who married a cameraman over the weekend, is now explaining that she has suffered from multiple personalities throughout her life and was insane during her three-year relationship with Ellen DeGeneres. On her current mental state, she insists: "I'm all here." {She was later seen introducing herself as Morton and trying to bite into a piece of wedding cake with her ear.}

Seriously, I wish her the best of luck, and health.
