  1. We had a bunch of items piling up that I just wanted out of my garage. Stuff that we had just basically bought new/different versions of and didn't need anymore. The wife "Let's have another garage sale"  Forget that noise, I put it all out in the driveway this morning with a big free sign. It is amazing how quick people respond to "free". Granted it was some decent stuff--lawnmower, two end tables, a grill,  weed eater, etc...but wow, they didn't last two hours out there. Of course. the wife is like "See, we could have received some money for these items." :wall:


  2. Unsubscribed from the Network and really not watching at this point, but I did read some reviews this morning. I love the one that said "Way to go WWE--have a proclaimed racist go down and beat up a bunch of Hispanic wrestlers."  I mean why was Lars even on that show? It is not like he is a big talent that they couldn't do without. 

    I really wish the AEW PPV was cheaper. I won't shell out that much $$ and I bet a lot of others feel the same. It makes me concerned for their future if they are already on such a shoe-string budget they have to charge that much. They should have put it at 19.99 (even if it meant taking a reduced profit or even a loss) just to get people in the door for their product.

  3. We are right on the edge of the severe storm area in Colorado, but the meteorologists here are still warning of a chance for big storms this afternoon (wind/hail/lightning), but then tonight we may get 1-3 inches of snow. Run the A/C one day---had to turn the heater back on this morning. Crazy spring weather... 

    edit--as I am typing this our first round of heavy rain and small hail just hit.


  4. I really need to win the lottery so I can retire and stay home. I just have no time to game. I own every gaming system and I have multiple games I have bought that are still sealed. I bought RDR2 and I just couldn't get into it--it was so slow and boring. I went back and played GTA5 and that was fun but again so immersive, I didn't scratch the surface on it. I have the newest Forza. Again huge game--no time invested in it.  I bought Days Gone launch day, played for two hours and I haven't been able to get back to it. I never finished Skyrim. I have the Witcher 3 sitting there sealed. It is frustrating.....

  5. Kraft's "special" legal team isn't the reason this case is going to go away. What they filed wasn't just a remedy available to rich guys.. Public Defenders and Pro Bono attorneys file Motions to Suppress by the boatloads every week and they prevail just as much as big dollar attorneys. 

    Law enforcement bumbled this one--plain and simple. I posted in this thread back in February that there were elements that jumped out to me as problematic for the DA. I erroneously believed Kraft may have taken a simple diversion offer to make it go away, but as the complete over-reaching by the sheriff became apparent, they realized they had a winner here. 

    What I will find interesting is how many lawsuits come out of this. People, such as the female patron, who was there getting a legit massage, were viewed by LE and their images are still stored on servers.  I bet this is going to cost that jurisdiction big time when it is all said and done. 


  6. Well that sucked....but great job Portland!! 

    Our young guys just couldn't get it done in the 4th. The future is bright, but this still hurts.

    What I like is the complete respect each team had for one another after the game. There wasn't any diva (Harden) going to the lockers. I am pulling for Portland now--would love to see the NBA absolutely blow a gasket hyping a Blazers/Bucks final. :lol:

  7. Going to fire up the new grill today for the first time. We bought it during winter on a great sale. My concern is we had a monster blizzard with winds close to 100 mph that picked up this huge grill and threw it close to 15-20 feet across the yard. I went and got a new propane tank just because i didn’t trust the old tank to not be damaged during its “flight”. Man, I hope there isn’t something damaged in this thing and I end up in the ER.

  8. Watched The Prodigy last night.  Can't say I hated it--just seemed like a mishmash of other movies--the whole spirit of a serial killer inhabits someone else theme and then sprinkle in a little Omen vibe and you have this movie. I didn't fall asleep so I guess it had that going for it. 

    It has been so long since I have watched a really scary movie. Maybe I am just numb to everything.

    Well at least the Avalanche righted the ship - stayed in this and played like they should be there in a game 7 - a lazy play/bad call difference  - and I have a feeling they will be back with a great lineup coming in the future. I'm not happy but satisfied with the effort.

    You hate to be happy with “exceeding the expectations”, but this team did this beyond belief. 

    The future is bright. The experience this young Avs team got is priceless. 

    Good job Sharks!!

  10. So for us casual fans--where do they go from here? I mean is there another like really super bad guy that everyone has to come together yet again to beat. Like "Thanos? Thanos? That guy used to park my car. I am (insert really evil guy's name)."  And away we go......

    I am trying to get my wife to watch War so I have an excuse to go see this again.

    not even that. someone else touching her hands? are you kidding me?? might as well drop a bucket of cow manure on her heard a la Double Dare.

    Our wives could be related. 😄

    Seriously I am thinking about get my wife an Ancestry kit. It is really a tough call because my wife is adopted and I am afraid how she will react. I know it is something she has mentioned she is really curious about.

    You have really heard a person complain  that Burger King wasn’t doing enough for mental health? I mean outside of their food being bad for you. 

    You are right--completely right.

    I grew up watching the Jerry Lewis Telethon. We would get our pennies together and donate. As kids. we really felt like we did something. The excitement came when Jerry would change the numbers over to another  million and the crowd went wild. The big companies would come on and give Jerry the big checks and no one said well 7-11 or Anheuser Busch are just giving those checks so people will consume their product.

    That's what we have here. People are going to eat at Burger King--that is a given. if one person benefits from this campaign, it is awesome.

    This is a serious, way under-reported and under financed, problem in this country (and one that hits close to home). Any company willing to step up and help at all is appreciated, IMO.

    Why do you think shooting a sick animal is cruel? Assuming you don’t miss, it is quick and painless, and avoids the potential stress associated with going to the vet.

    Personally, if my pet was suffering with no hope of recovery,  I’d chose a home vet visit, but it’s hard to fault someone doing it the old fashioned way.

    Believe me I am not faulting anyone.  

    You know it is that whole city vs rural idea. My BIL has put his dogs down all his life via a .22 because he grew up that way. His view on animals is different because he had cattle and chickens all his life and they were there as a means to feed his family or send to the packing plant for money. You didn't grow attached to the chicken or the cow because it was soon to be a meal. 

    He is a great husband/father and has been there for my sister for 30 years. He never allowed a dog in the house ever, but he softened over the years because he knew what it meant to my sister and allowed their dog to stay in the house (and the reality is it would have been killed by coyotes). He let my sister have their last dog be put down by the home euthanasia because of what it meant to my sister. 

    I couldn't do it because the guilty would eat me alive, but I don't fault someone else's way of life
