Re: Pet Peeve

I had a pet peeve once, but I never knew what to feed it. Sorry - getting back on topic ..... If you are going to fly the American flag make sure that the flag is in good repair — no tattered and faded flags, please — and that you at least try to follow some of the other points of proper flag etiqu...

Re: Buffett=only white fans Does this bother anyone else?

Thanks, Bob.
I understand your question a whole lot better now because of your response.

As an honest answer, no , I'm not bothered. But no one has ever accused me of being terribly sensitive, so maybe I'm just not used to thinking about it the same as some other folks.

Re: Buffett=only white fans Does this bother anyone else?

SP, I like consider myself one of your 'on-line' friends. I like to read your posts, and I certainly appreciate your humor and creativity. But I'm still unclear why we're entertaining this odd notion. Are you harboring some sort of "white guilt"? I doesn't bother me that some people don't like beer....

Re: HMS Bounty lost at sea

Fair skies and following seas, Sailor.
It might not be good, but it's a glorious end, on the ship you sailed and the sea you loved.

Peace and strength to those you left behind.

Sandy, Turn Right!

In anticipation of Sandy's landfall somewhere on the east coast, I'm stocked up with propane, charcoal, and beer.
Anybody else making plans for Sandy's arrival?

Lotta good give & take @NY, but at the end of the day, Eli and the Giants were just that much better.
Congrats, NY. Get ya next time.

Re: NFL 2012 Season

Redskins and Giants are both playing reasonably good offense, trading scores about evenly. Guess it'll come down to last possession.

Re: I wish Jimmy would stay out of the political arena....

Here in Oz, during our last elections the leader of one of our party's (Liberal - conservatives) said during negotiations with minor party's "I would do anything except sell my arse to be Prime Minister". SEE? There's no real commitment by any of them. A real politician would gladly sell his own ar...

Re: NFL 2012 Season

If the real refs don't come back, an unjust win is the least of our worries. Players are going to get hurt - hurt bad, and hurt unnecessarily. And fans are going to get mad, stark raving, car-burning mad. It's time for the owners to step up and demand good officiating for their money.

Re: Go-Go's tour 2012......Anyone?

The Go-Gos were a guilty pleasure for me too. . . in the 80s. Unfortunately you can never go back again. (Although a skilled plastic surgeon can put portions of you back.)
