  1. Sorry I cant make this guys, would have been nice but my new job means I have to be up early for work, so 7pm is midnight and beyond for me and I have to be in work at 7am. Need my sleep to be able to cope with a 12 hour christmas shifts unfortunatly! I wish all of you the very best for christmas and the new year, as long as the world doesn't end, if it does...its been a pleasure knowing you all, see you on the other side!
  2. Wow thanks everyone for the warm welcome back! I've missed you guys very much! And awww Roger that's so sweet! It great that your still here!
  3. Thanks everybody! Life has been really hectic recently, I'm catching back up with quite a few places xD
  4. Awww thanks Hoss!! I've missed being here!
  5. Hey all! I'm not a new member but a returning one from where I've been hiding in a place I hate called real life. University, Work, Family Deaths, Family Drama lots of things have kept me away from the site but all that is about to change. I plan to be on here as regular as I did before, posting where I can and writing with you great people here at Hazzardnet. I've missed you all who I knew before, and say hi to everyone new whose arrived here since I last signed on which was probably a while ago :S I'm so glad to be able to get back here!!! BoJames
  6. Ack!! I've been away too long due to internet problems and busy life getting in the way and this is what I come back to?!?!?! I'm so glad your okay Rog, Hazzardnet wouldn't be the same without you around!
  7. Big LOL's, your song makes me laugh Brian And you took the violent bit the wrong way, I thought everyone knew that if you take a violent exception to something it means to be really really really really against it, or to make an obviously big stand against it, maybe that's just me or my country I don't know. I just really dont see why this whole name has caused such big outrage, why people are feeling like they've had their feelings hurt and also why everyone keeps harping on about the show being 'all about' family values. It wasn't all about that at all, even John's admitted its had its risque moments and some people who have watched the show have had the same violent reaction to it Muffin did because they don't agree the show should be advertising running from the law, shooting at people with bow's and arrows, knowingly breaking terms of probation and painting a confederate flag on the top of their car - promoting slavery which I have heard before and don't completly agree with. Yeah the show has family elements to it, and it is a large part of it, but none of it was completly good wholesome family fun to everybody. Ben was a part of the show, he and Alma have their reasons for calling the group what they did and the people in it have their reasons for sticking with it. It's been raised, as Daisymae said, as to the suitability of the name with them but its not been changed for a reason and none of us as far as I know understand those reasons completly. I think in the end, we might all have to agree to disagree on this one, mainly because its 7am here and I'm in a more peaceful mood than the tired, angry one I was yesterday night after a 13 hour day at work lol. I'm sorry if any of the post I put yesterday offended anyone, especially Muffin, I just didn't want Daisymae to be upset over something that isn't her fault when she's just trying to answer a question which she is. By the way......I am in no way affiliated with the Hazzard County Mafia, any and all opinions and commentary i've passed on the group are completly my own and in no way express the thought and opinions of the Hazzard Count Mafia themselves xD
  8. Hazzard County Posse? Isn't that just as bad as mafia huh? Groups who go round shooting other people in gang wars and doing drugs and all that are called posse's, at least they are over here. We also, by your standards, can't call them a Gang, Crew or Homies because they will mean bad things to different people. Not everything in Hazzard was named in fuzzly family friendly words. POint is, Bo and Luke arn't in the Hazzard County Mafia because they are fictional characters, and Muffin is the only one who i've encountered whove had such a violent and hostile reaction to the name. Other people can take it in the humor with which it was intended. By the way, just to prove a point, the word mafia in the english dictionary has a few definitions, one of them being 4. often mafia Informal: A tightly knit group of trusted associates, as of a political leader.
  9. Woooooaaahhhh hostility alert?! Come on meadow, its not like these guys go round beating people up, fleecing them for money and taking people out like hitmen nor do they claim to do any of that in the name of Duke! Daisymae was just answering a question and lets face it, we all harp on about how family friendly Dukes is, but seriously...look at first season especially, how risque was the show really? How many inappropriate inuendos were there? They ran from the law - even if it was as corrupt - they're on probation, the boys are the biggest skirt chasers around, they fling themselves off of cars. Nowadays as I see it, if you call yourself a mafia, it doesn't neccisarily mean what it used to. Its more of a joking way to describe a good bunch of buddyroes, a closeknit family of friends. I've heard many people go around describing themselves as the so and so mafia and they're the nicest people....although they also call themselves the so and so 'massives' as well which is kinda dorky LOL Maybe its not the best name, maybe people will take it the wrong way, but those people have a reason for calling it that. Who are we to judge them for what they call their group? If they went around causing trouble, yeah I could understand the outrage, but....'What's in a name, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet' Yeah that's right, just a little shakespeare off the top of my head there xD Now lets all chill and listen to some music....John Schneider anyone?
  10. Oh Roger, always soooo negative!! I will convince you to watch them again you'll see I don't remember which episode it is because I Haven't seen it in a long time, when Jesse's in the hospital and the cousins are in the room and Bo doesn't want to leave Jesse always makes me cry. Brotherly Love when Bo's begging Luke to wake up gets me....Carnival of Thrills when Bo leaves at the end and Jesse's talking to him makes me cry...Bo and Luke's hug at the end also gets to me... Goodbye General Lee when Luke wins the archery contest, the look of hearbreak on Bo's face makes me cry Needless to say there's a lot of episodes that makes me blub and most of it is caused by the boys LOL
  11. Hey ldhensen Good to have you on site. Just to say about your what were you thinking moments, its true when a train is barralling towards you that you get out of the car, absolute common sense. However you also have to remember that General's doors are welded shut, and while the boys are of course quick at getting in an out of them windows, wouldn't the damage to them have been far worse if they didn't slide out in time? Least with a car they between them and the train one of them would survive. Also, General I think is meant to be more than a car to the boys. They built the engine and the car together, and we're supposed to take into account that Luke was just out of the marines - probably back from Nam in wartime - when they did so its a symbol to Bo and Luke of their closeness as cousins - brothers even, Bo has always been reluctant to leave General behind or do anything to old GL, I cant stand watching episodes either where the General is in danger! LOL Goodbye General Lee makes my heart pound even though I know its all gonna be okay! LOL Just my two cents
  12. Add into that also there's supposed to be two people in the front of one of those generals and one in the back and there clearly isn't in those...
  13. Ooooo...I like those ideas! Rosco's a bit tricky for me cause I dont tend to write with him a lot but I could give it a go! Anyone else?
  14. Okaay my buddies here at Hnet, I was wondering if y'all could give me (and posisbly DaisyMae too if she wants to participate) any ideas that you want me to write up into a fanfiction to be posted exclusivly here on Hnet? They can be really simple ideas from things in the show that you'd like a perspective on, or a completly new idea they never did. Only thing I do ask is for there to be nothing crazy, like sci-fi ideas, long lost cousin/brother/sister/aunt/uncle ideas or anything that is too far out there. Anyone got anythin fer me?
  15. Aww thanks Rog I have my moments I guess
  16. Okkkaaaayyyy people, big announcement here!! My best friend in the whole wide world, and I do mean that literally cause she lives in America, and a person more like a sister to me than my own sister is has just a few hours ago gotten engaged!! Of course, the guy she's engaged to not only loves her to pieces and treats her like the star of a person she is, he's also a huge Dukes fan AND owns a General Lee!! They even met at 2008 Dukesfest!! I'm so happy for her and I did get her permission to post this before she could , I just wanted to wish her and Steve all the best in their future life together, she deserves everything that's coming her way now after a very difficult couple of years. Congratulations DaisyMae, I love ya so much cousin xxx
  17. Okay, so maybe i'm dense but has anyone else noticed Jesse's hat isn't a baseball cap as has been written in fanfictions and stuff? Its a deerhunter's hat (the ones that are usually furry with flaps hanging down by the ears_ with the flaps tied up on top!!! I actually had to pause to notice it, but I couldn't help but have a laugh at how I always thought it was a baseball cap!
  18. Okay, just a little musing going on over here in England as I watch Dukes, and I've come across the reason I love them Dukes so much....aside from the very hot boys, incrediably smart and able girl, the family dynamic and the General Lee...its the fact that they live in a world where material things arn't important to them. Where finding a $5 bill is as exciting as finding a million, where all they have is land, family and an awsome race car and they're content with that. They dont care how much someone does or doesn't have, any extra money they get is usually donated to those who need it and they never actively seek out any reward for what they do around Hazzard. They have so much fun with just the little things in life - going fishing or hunting or even just driving around singing songs. Its a world that I wish we lived in, because I recon if everyone could take a chapter out of this awsome show's book, the world would be a heck of a lot nicer place. And what brought this on? I'll tell you the scene so maybe you can watch it and get the same feelings I did...or maybe i'm just crazy lol. Its in Season 3, The Great Hazzard Hijack at the very beginning. Luke catches £1000 dollars floating by in the river. He picks it up and declares 'We're Rich!'. Even though we all know and he knows he isn't gonna keep that money, the look on his face and the excitement in his tone of voice just made me go 'Awwww Bless Him!' literally out loud. He wouldn't be rich with that amount of money, but just the fact he got that feeling from finding that - which lets face it so many people would take for granted - really hit me. Anyways, that's just me
  19. Luke: Personally, I'd like to win that race on Saturday, so A. we need that Richard Petty car to B. get the parts to C. rebuild the General so he can D. and E. enter and win... F.... [points at Bo]...am I gettin' through to you? ----- Jesse: You boys got any idea on how we’re gonna get outta this mess? Luke: The only way I can see is do a little square dancing. I’ll do the calling. (Bo gives him a puzzled look) Jesse: Square Dancing? Luke: Hold your partner close and tight, Do-si-do with all your might. (Bo and Jesse laugh) Jesse: And I’ll swing left, you swing right.
  20. OMG I just saw, the Duke Boys actually made a joke about this in an episode cept now I dont remember which one it was LOL...but it goes something like this... Bo: Boss'll be finein' people for...I don't know...the colour of yer hair... Luke: *laughs* Or for having hair...
