  1. Nope, nothing wrong with brunettes, or blondes, or red-heads, or even blue-hairs--I love 'em all. But there is something wrong (inappropriate or ineffective might be a better word) about a 40 year-old woman trying to pass her self off as a 20 year-old race track queen. It's pathetic. Anybody remember Linda Vaughn?
  2. This year's Series was an incredibly exciting and dramatic ending for the 2011 season. Game Six will be remembered and discussed for years. Congratulations, Cardinals. Get 'em next year, Rangers.
  3. That time tunnel went pretty far to get to lindalou. Hope y'all are doing well.
  4. Amazing. Be sure to watch the ball girl's catch, too. There's a link at the end of ff2's clip.
  5. Boy, you've got some grandiose plan there, Bruce. Good luck with that.
  6. Congratulations, Sue and family.
  7. Jacee, I saved the picture of your front yard that you posted a couple of years ago. Such an explosion of color, it was truly beautiful. So, I know that your yard will come around this year, too. BTW, why do you keep your lillies in a kennel? Do they tend to run away?
  8. I found him--and Freddy the Freeloader, Osama Bin Laden, and Rush Limbaugh. Oh, and I found Jesus on my tortilla at lunch today. Creative, or delusional?
  9. That was the manager? Shades of Billy Martin.
  10. I thought it was funny, Tx. Any idea who it is?
  11. I was reading the manual recently, and the Marrantz 2270 weighs 38lbs. They damn sure don't build them like that anymore. Mine is still pushing the same old JBL36's (re-coned), and I have a Thorens TD160 that's just like the one in Bruce's pic.
  12. I still remember that when bacterozoid posted about a wiring problem, Volt offered to drive down and fix the problem for him. Volt deserves a lot of credit for making the Pitstop as successful as it is.
  13. This is the most heart-warming Christmas story that I've seen this year--it brought tears to my eyes. As we celebrate His birthday, it is good to remember Jesus' commandment to love thy neighbor as thyself.
  14. The police get warrants based upon lying informers all of the time. That alone does not implicate the cops who may (or may not) be acting in good faith. But, in this case, there likely was no informant which would mean that the cops lied to the judge who issued the warrant, and possibly used forward-looking-infra-red cameras illegally. Still, neither is surprising. What is surprising and amusing to me--hell, I was laughing out loud--is that someone set up a sting to catch the cops at their game. Maybe it's just me, but watching those cops wander around in that house knowing that they've been had is really funny.
  15. This story about KopBusters is currently featured on Ron Paul's website. It has also been picked up at Raw Story and other sites, but the press doesn't seem to be running with it yet. There are plenty of unanswered questions--this story needs more coverage. The short version of the sign on the wall is "Gotcha"--even the cops were chuckling.
  16. Tech did have the better team. Tech was sharp, Texas was sloppy. Oh well, there's always next year.
  17. Hammond is on the edge of Cajun Country , a small area of the US with its own unique personality (and language ). Cajun cuisine is equally unique. Have a good time.
  18. He was quite a driver. In 1976 he won his first SCCA national championship driving a Bob Sharp Datsun 510. He would win three more SCCA championships. He won his class at Le Mans and at the Daytona 24 Hours. As an owner, he would win 8 Indy/CART championships--the first with Mario Andretti as the driver. He founded Newman's Own which produced salad dressings, popcorn, and spaghetti sauce. His profits were given to charity, over $250 million at last count. This philanthropy allowed him to establish the Hole In The Wall camps for children in the US and Europe. As a political activist, he strongly supported civil rights and strongly opposed the war in Viet Nam. This earned him a place on Nixon's Enemy List. He could act, too.

    Wow, woodro, that is just devastating. I'm thankful that you, your family and friends were not badly hurt.
  20. Hi Tracy- We miss you around here. Have a
  21. What's a colonial to think? England: 202+294-4=492 New Zealand: 381+114=495 But, England wins by 6 wickets. Geez, even the score is incomprehensible.
  22. Cheers, Bruce. Here, it's San Jacinto Day, named for the battle in which Texas won it's independence. But, there's no day off.
