Health problems, financial setbacks including a legal "David-and-Goliath" battle with David (us) on the losing end. You gotta love corporatism...

Gone is Garlic Head, K and L Products and TCI.

Thanks to past supporters and friends.

Serenak, I'm sorry if my emails seemed oppressive. I am quite depressed, but being of Irish decent am planning on surviving if only to spite the bastards.

Others, thanks for the well wishes.

To the Universe and Beyond!

Snaggy - Thanks for the avatar restoration - it helps.

Garlic Guy - this is sad news.

I hope that the Irish bit of you is the stubborn bit that will carry on with a grim determination to leave the world in a little better shape than how you found it.

Sorry to hear that GG.
Maybe you could put your Irish heritage to good use, and set up a still.

Glad to see you back on here Garlic Guy...

Your mail was not oppressive... just a little scary, I know what trouble heaped on trouble can do to a man (or woman) and - well to be honest I just kinda got really worried about you...

Glad that at least you can pull out the grit to say "I will survive, even if just to spite you b*st*rds"...

Just try to plug on an and don't let them grind you down my friend.

If you need an ear to vent to you know where to find me...

GG sorry to hear that some stuff fell through. But at least it leaves you time for some Irish pursuits.

 -

Honestly though. Glad to see you are still kicking. And I will send some good thoughts in your direction.

garlicguy I am very sorry to hear of this. It is very hard when something you have put so much of yourself into comes to an end, especially when that end is so unjust. You cannot help but grieve for the loss for a while.

However I am also certain that the the fun, mischief, and cheek that were also part of the spirit of the thing will come bubbling back, and another unlikely opportunity will inspire your enterprise and undoubted capacity for hard graft. You are the Willy Wonka of these forums, and I have little doubt that within a few years your megacorporation Eccentric Industries Inc will be inflicting further products of dubious value on an increasingly sceptical public. [Wink]

Take care gg, and it is nice to have you back. You have been missed.

I'm so sorry, GG. Chin up, though-things will get better.

Welcome back.

GG, who put the lawyers onto you?
I'll add them to my list of companies I don't do business with.

So sorry to hear about your troubles, gg. What has the world come to when its awesomest people are getting a raw deal? Hang in there and be sure that very many of us are glad to provide a collective shoulder should you need it.

GG – You have my full empathy on this one. I'm facing a similar situation as far as end results are concerned. I second TFD's question, which bastage company put the lawyers to you?

I don't know if you'll take solace in what I'm about to share, but at the very least know you are not alone. Most everyone I know who has a small business has either shutdown, is on the brink, or is crapping their pants trying to figure out if they'll be able to make it to next year.

I'm all ears if you need. May the Fates hold something even better for you.

Thanks for the well wishes, gang! I do hang around here a bit, but rarely post anymore. Some of that would be for political reasons (Ron Paul supporter) and some is due to recurring depression.

As for who done it, you would not be able to shop at your local food store if you boycotted them - it is a division of the largest food distribution company in the world. That's what happens when the little guys (me) try to play in the same game with the 8 giants of the food oligopoly (them).

Oh well. If only Paul Newman were not in his final days. We had established contact and have similar interests in furthering the cause of young folks. Alas, he'll soon be gone. But who knows.

Again thanks! For any with similar disorders, you know that encouragement helps. So to all here who encourage more often than attack, accuse or criticize: Yay YOU!

Best of luck in your battles - may you find some kickass free lawyer to wipe the smirk off the big boys....and get some peace to mend yourself.

______________________ GG __ I do not wish harm or trouble to anyone, I may disagree with your views but defend your right to have them. From your posts I have gleaned that you were a Naval Aviator, You should have come up with while at sea I was Angel one or two. We both put our asses on the line. Don't let the Bastards get to to you, don't loose your soul to them. They are not worth it.
