  1. Wow, that's unusual for NC, and all of the southeast and midatlantic. Expect to hear about them in TX and OK, but not there. Hope you're all safe, and thoughts to everyone in the path.
  2. A little late, but congrats, LadyJet, to your daughter! You must be a proud mama! Hope her talent was something better than creating music with water bottles.
  3. Besides Crusher (just kidding ) I'm not sure how many people will like this but: http://www.delish.com/food/recalls-reviews/dennys-jumps-on-bacon-bandwagon?gt1=47001
  4. Hope it was a great one, DLJ! Sorry I missed it. Work has been awful lately. No time for posting.
  5. Hope you are having a great day, greenbeans!
  6. Sorry to hear this, sloe. So tragic. My thoughts are with you and her family.
  7. Mel is horrible human being but he has made some good movies. His latest, The Beaver, will premiere at the South by Southwest Festival here in Austin. Before you get excited about a movie called The Beaver, it's not about you-know-what or the Cleaver family. Here's what I read---sounds really strange : Mel Gibson stars as a man whose relationship with his beaver hand puppet goes beyond normality in this poignant drama from writer Kyle Killen and director Jodie Foster. A troubled husband and executive adopts a beaver hand-puppet as his sole means of communicating.
  8. +1 When that idiot crashed his car into our house, my computer was at point of impact. It went flying 20 feet and is now a fried-out hunk of metal. Fortunately, I have most of my files on an external hard drive. Not that I'm looking forward to setting up a whole new computer, installing software, etc, but at least I have my personal files.
  9. The one I hate is for Sprint. The dork is in front of his neighbor's house texting to his confused neighbor how much an eye-sore his decorations are -- Ho, Ho, Horrendous! Just a mean ad; I can't stand it; Sprint is nuts if they think this will get them customers.
  10. To all you JN'ers and your families: where we don't get the Jets game. Everywhere else in TX sees the Jets, but Austin and Houston have to suffer through the Texans (slowmoe, you must be happy to be over in Tampa ) A good friend--a Bears fan--is coming over to watch the game on internet streaming. Should be a lot of fun! She's from Chicago and just sold her house so she can move back there.
  11. Oh, gg, you know roughly how I am, since I'm a charter member of the "old hag" group.
  12. Happy Hanukkah to gg and all who observe! Sorry this is a bit late (glad H goes 8 days), but I haven't been reading or posting too much lately. A moron drove his car into our house and destroyed our den a few weeks before Thanksgiving. My husband and I are very lucky to not have been killed or more seriously injured, as we were about a foot away from where the car landed, and bricks, glass, wall, and furniture were flying everywhere. Oh, and did I mention the idiot broke a tree in half and brought that into the house too? While our home computers, TV, desks, chairs, and a lot of other stuff are gone and have to be replaced (and this is a royal pain), we are very thankful that it is only possessions that were destroyed and that we both are still here. Unbelievable when something like this happens--shows how in a instant, life can change. We were very fortunate, and we wish the best for all of you and your families (whatever your religion) during this holiday season.
  13. I had graduated college and was in my first year of teaching high school math -- and wondering what the heck I got myself into. I was at home grading tests and watching TV in the background. When it was announced, I couldn't believe it. But having lived through all the assassinations in the 60's, I thought there's another whacko in the world and how tragic that these things keep happening.
  14. Congrats, LBS!! Being a Jets fan up in Pats-land is tough enough, but to be married to a Pats fan, wow! Best of luck to the both of you!
  15. +1 Welcome, trista! I've had the same thing happen to me. It's annoying. On the other hand, at my last office, none of the guys were into football. There was no office pool, and when I tried to talk about the games, they all looked at me as if I were nuts. So I guess it goes both ways.
  16. Oh wow, that's so tragic. Something like this always makes me think about life and reminds me to value what I have. Lots of little stuff really don't matter.
  17. Happy Halloween to everyone and let's hope the Jets give us a treat today!
  18. +1 I thought the sunglasses didn't look that out of place for the time period. I remember seeing other glasses with the wrap-around look from back around that time. His clothes did seem out of place. His t-shirt didn't fit in with the suits everyone was wearing. Was he a beatnik? (a term for us older posters) They said he had a portable camera but didn't give a close-up, so it's hard to tell. Weren't there smaller cameras in the 40's? I'm not sure what kind of cameras war reporters used back then. It's all very interesting, though. I've always found time traveling fascinating. Time Cop, anyone? (gratuitous reference to a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie)
