  1. Thanks. Falling Rock and Wynkoop look pretty close to my hotel/work. Went to Falling Rock tonight. One of the best tap lists I’ve seen. I had Comrade Superpower and Pliny the Elder. Wish I had a bit more sobriety to spare to explore a bit more tonight. May have to try to squeeze a return visit.

  3. Hatch green chile, cheddar, ketchup.
  4. Heading to Denver for work for a few days. What beers should I seek out while I’m there?
  5. Getting 65 women who knew him in high school when he went to all-male school is pretty impressive. I went to a public school, and I struggled just to get one to know who I was.
  6. The waiting list is done. I read the other day that the Redskins still have tickets available for Sunday, and they may not sell out.
  7. I wasn't around for the 1970 Mets, but I wonder what the feeling was like then. They had the "miracle" year of 1969, and then they dropped to mediocre in 1970. I doubt the New York media gave them much of a pass though.
  8. In the US... I would a national parks loop out west, and hit Yellowstone, Yosemite, Zion, etc. Internationally... I'd probably do western Europe, since I've never been (outside Italy) and could hit a good number of countries.
  9. Not max, but "That Thing You Do" will be getting some good points from me too. Nothing too deep, but just a simple, enjoyable film -- kind of a reflection of the song at the center of it. I'll probably be giving some good points to "Josie and the #####cats" when we get to 2001 too. Certainly a different approach/style, but I may just have a weak spot for movies about pop bands with some catchy songs.
  10. This guy is insane/despicable/awful. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump .....This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!
  11. I thought the thumbs up at the memorial was even worse. It may be because I have been to Shanksville, and I know exactly what the ranger is showing him and Melania right there -- the flight path of the plane.
  12. SETI scientists spot 72 signals 'from alien galaxy' 3bn light years away Scientists do not yet know what causes the mysterious fast radio bursts, but a form of alien transportation has been suggested. Scientists searching for extraterrestrial life say they have spotted 72 mysterious signals from an alien galaxy using artificial intelligence (AI). The researchers at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute discovered the unusual signals when examining 400 terabytes of radio data from a dwarf galaxy three billion light years away from Earth. Almost all artificial intelligence technology involves automating data analysis, combing through huge data sets to identify patterns or unusual occurrences. The signals they spotted - fast radio bursts (FRBs) - are bright and quick pulses which were first discovered in 2007 and are believed to come from distant galaxies, although it is not yet know what causes them. "The nature of the object emitting them is unknown," SETI said, adding: "There are many theories, including that they could be the signatures of technology developed by extraterrestrial intelligent life."
  13. She started during the match. After she was assessed the game penalty, she started telling the officials that it’s not fair and men say much worse.
  14. I don't think it was sexist. Both the ump and Serena could have acted better. Worse things have been said without penalty, but Serena wasn't letting it drop either. Most players say their piece and move on, but Serena came back to her earlier complaint about the coaching penalty. The ump could have tried defusing it -- maybe saying that he wasn't accusing her of cheating; it was her coach that cheated, and it's what the rules require. If she still kept going on at that point, then the game penalty would be proper. I think Osaka still would have won, but it felt like Serena was starting to find her game a bit there just before the meltdown.
