  1. I love the video for You Can Call Me Al. Paul Simon and Chevy Chase played off each other so well.
  2. Touring this summer with parts of Zappa's band.
  3. Let us know when you have gear! (Hugely important for you, I know!!)
  4. Zero. PB&J is just wrong. 🤪 If you're gonna make a sandwich, do it right. Meats and cheeses, with veggies like lettuce, tomato and onion. We have both in the pantry, but the jelly is not what would be put on a PB&J, usually a red raspberry or something like that for toast. Dog gets the most peanut butter in the house.
  5. Not at all to get political, but when I clicked on that video, I got a Trump ad.
  6. Graceland and the collaboration of Paul Simon with LBM is one of my favorite albums.
  7. My daughter is confused about why never to give them Iceberg. She had been told it was OK because of the high water content.
  8. Intersting. We only give the stalks of the broccoli, not the tops. One of the veggies that we give them is small cucumbers. These don't have seeds that are as 'heavy' as normal cokes. They are either 'larger' ones the are about 1/2-3/4" in diameter and about 6 inches long, or we can get 'petite' cakes that are less than 1/2" in diameter and 2-3 inches long (think tiny whole pickles). We know not to give celery (strings are bad) and spinach, but the broccoli is news. We don't give it to them often, we try to rotate the veggies, which I think is correct.
  9. My daughter just got 2 about 6 months ago, started with a smaller cage, and decided to go bigger. It was originally going to be a project funded by my daughter (13 y.o.) but my wife decided she needed a second one (for reasons mentioned above) and it is curious how the costs have shifted away from daughter. Hmmm... The cage we moved to is this, more designed for rabbits, but it gives them some room. They don't smell that bad, as long as you maintain the cage (it is also tucked away in daughter's room!). They also toss stuff everywhere, so make sure that you have something underneath to catch! We went from traditional savings for the floor, but were told by vet that those were bad for feet because of cuts. We then went to towels for a while (disgusting!) and have finally set on a different shaving that is better for their feet. I'll check with daughter later today for what they are exactly. We also give them some fresh veggies every night (carrots, broccoli stems, lettuce, etc.) so that adds some costs. She loves them, I refer to them as 'the rats' even though I know they aren't. They shouldn't last longer than her going to college, so we have that going for us! If you have more questions, post them and I can ask if I don't know!
  10. Congrats! I was looking forward to having a .0001 percent stake in a bbq business though.
  11. When traveling, we have had great luck with LaQuinta hotels. They are pet-friendly, but don't smell like it, and don't require a deposit.
  12. One thought to try is being a rescue home. You are assigned a dog while they are going thru the process of waiting for rescue and the approval of their new family. This way you have control over when you have a dog (you can pass it off when you have a vacation approaching.) I have some friends that do it, and they like doing it. If you want to 'test the waters' this may be a good way to see if you like it!
  13. I am a plain old ordinary Mt. Dew guy. It is my main source of caffeine, since I despise coffee! I have always had a distaste for diet sodas. I haven't had it in a while so I may need to test it again.
