    Just hate to be the one to tell Ya BUT, the Potato Famine in Ireland was a hoax; they were all just hung over and couldn't remember where they had planted the stupid potatoes.

    And, Donald Trump has just been proclaimed President of the U.S.of A. by acclamation and declares Obama to be a Muslim.

    Seriously, I have no doubt that Dennis could "use" a new Sanga right about now and the bike will fit perfectly into the zen travel thread
    viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3585

    Happy April to y'all, eh !!

    Hey Jundo,

    I've got a great property for you to look at here in the US for one of your homes. It's beach front, so you can wear your treeleaf surfing clothes and use your officially licensed treeleaf surfboard (not intended for actual use, treeleaf is not responsible for injuries sustained from falling off of the board or explosions), and just because it's you, you can have the whole place, including the golden gate at the foot of the drive, for $500,000.00 USD, now that's friend price- so don't tell anyone else, ok?

    I want to personally welcome Genpo Roshi and make my own private island in the Caribbean available for the Treeleaf.

    Also I want to say that it's such a relief that the precepts are optional.

    Thanks Jundo!

    Can we also have a dispensation for parking in front of fire hydrants? It makes my walk into the donut shop that much shorter...

    Jundo,

    I'd be careful about bringing Brad into the fold so soon after your breakup with Taigu. I just knew all that back and forth you had with Brad was sexual tension!

    Seriously, though? After a year or so of reading about Zen and inevitably coming across Genpo, Shimano, Baker, the apologists, the angry, the sex, the money, the books and confessions . . . it was pretty cool to see someone having a laugh with it all.

    Gassho,

    I also loved the idea of franchising. Hummm, ZenDonalds has a nice ring to it! We can even have our own version of Ronald(named Donald McDonald in Japan. Only because they can't pronounce Rs) as pictured below.

    Oh Man, haven't been online in a day or so. I just joined and I live in Salt Lake City, site of the former Genpo Roshi's glory. For a moment, I nearly had a heart attack!

    Just a sad mention...I understand Mr. Merzel is indeed teaching again already. It's even been announced on his former sangha's website. He is teaching up in the canyon behind my house. Apparently his pledge was not to teach anymore at the center in Salt Lake City, and his new facility is just outside city limits. And for a measly few thousand dollars you can become enlightened too! Unlike this sangha where you have to work at it for so long. As Genpo says, "The hard path is for those who can't afford the express lane!" The first bolt of enlightenment is of course...don't give this guy a nickel. A policy I'm happy to say I've had for a number of years here in this community.

    Jundo, you nearly scared me to death...I was a full 40 seconds into the video announcement before I realized I was being had! Thanks for the laugh, damn you!

    Great idea!

    lets add another branch in Israel!!! i am volunteering to lead this new branch. i really think that Israel could use another religion to fight over this country.

    we will need all treeleaf members with military experience martial arts background to come to Israel as soon as possible.
    the conquest of this land begins next week!

    we will begin by taking over Tel-Aviv and using it as a port city and a base of operations. during the night its many bars and clubs could be used for R&R. after that we match on Jerusalem!

    so to recap... first we take Tel-Aviv and then we take Jerusalem. or is it first we take Manhattan and than we take Berlin?

    Earthquakes, Tsunami, devastation, radiation, and zen charlatans, yet still a sense of humor. Simply great! Gassho, Shogen
