  1. For anyone thinking of a cruise in 2019 - RC is promoting Cuba specials
  2. While I am no longer with the "evil empire", I did work for MSFT for 20 years. Success rate on the Desktop Troubleshooter is and has been about as large as a demi-tasse.
  3. David Gilmour - self titled 1978 --- spent the last half of the 70's and early 80's working for an LP retailer....vinyl collection is well guarded.
  4. I wonder how it's possible some people were capable enough to leave home.
  5. I think all sports fans will get a kick out of this letter written to the Chicago Tribune.... No matter which side you are on in the matter of renaming the Washington Redskins, this is funny. Here is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins. Dear Mr. Page: I agree with our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward. Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns. The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk. The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives. I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. It is totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels, or the San Diego Padres. Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates! Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits; wrong message to our children. The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic; wrong message to our children. The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. It is the wrong message to our children. The Milwaukee Brewers; well that goes without saying; it is the wrong message to our children. So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves. As a diehard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers (especially when they play Southern California}; do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers??? I always love your articles and I generally agree with them. As for the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the "Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Washington, D.C.
  6. Upmann Half Corona or San Cristobal El Principe might hit the mark with either group. Perhaps look for a box date of the month and year you were married.
  7. 100% - don't tell my bride, I have her convinced she is the OCD one.
  8. Say it ain't so.

    PerfectDraw saved 2 sticks this week. Pretty much a guarantee it will pay for itself in short order...
  9. Trying to figure out how to get that caramel popcorn into my PLPCs without just having to wait for time to pass....
  10. Jealousy and envy are hard to overcome. Beautiful!!! Fill er' up.
  11. After too much money spent on lighters, I find myself always going back to the cheapo $4 Ronson or 6$ Uper. Go figure, could have saved myself a lot of $$....
  12. With all due respect and deference to El Pres and his previous post on this topic, I'd be interested in seeing a refresh of his post from 2006. If those with much more experience would weigh into the topic, I'm confident it would be a great education for the novices, myself included, on FOH. Rate your vintages. What are your thoughts? (Rearrange the years and list your vintages top to bottom....bottom being worst, from the list of vintages below): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007
  13. Sad the smoke was a bit of a bust. I've recently been introduced to the Fonseca No.1 and have added it to the rotation for when a lighter profile is in order.
  14. If in London £20 gets me a ERDM Choix Supreme at JJ Fox, so guess it's relative to location. If it was London that would be the smoke.
