  1. My single sentence shared with Bowie: In a previous life, back in NYC in the early 90s, my ex worked for the MoMA, so we got to go to the private opening of the biggest art show of the 90s, the Matisse Retrospective (as you can tell by my avatar, I'm a Matisse fan). Anyway, the who's who of NYC society and stars were there, shuffling from piece to piece, room to room, studying and enjoy the works of the great master, Matisse. In about room 3, I noticed out of the corner of my eye, a tall dark figure above the crowd. I look over and it's Iman towering over none other than David Bowie. A few roo

  2. Update: Kid still alive and he's pretty awesome. And my golf game has actually gotten a lot better because I don't care as much about it anymore! Only drawbacks so far are 1) that my wife and I are so damn tired when the kid goes down at night (and we know that he's getting up at 2:30 AM and 6:00 AM like clockwork so we better get our sleep in) that we just go immediately to bed without any sexy time; and 2) the really bad blowout numbers twos gross me out big time. But seriously this being a dad to a tiny baby thing is pretty wonderful. So excited to hang out with him everyday. The foster

  4. A good post-marathon week: T: 4 miles W: 11 miles (8:24/mi, HR-146) Th: 8 miles, 3 miles tempo (7:25/mi) Sa: 1/2 mile swim! Su: 5 miles - treadmill 28 miles plus the swim. First swim in a long time without a wetsuit (and I missed it). Mrs. Tri and I joined a health club: Her to start working out and losing weight (she 'retires' on Feb. 1); me to get access to a pool, stationary bikes, and other cross-training equipment. Decided to try the treadmill since it was 10 degrees outside with some ice. It was a kind of weird experience, and mildly unpleasant. But if I didn't do that, I wouldn't

  5. Welcome Seung-Hwan Oh! Mid-90s fastball with an average slider sounds like a 7th-inning guy in the STL bullpen, but the nickname "Final Boss" ####### rules. All for it. Anything that gives Matheny less incentive to reach for the bullpen phone and say "Get Broxton Up" into it is welcomed. Seems like this move doesn't give much confidence in Jordan Walden's recovery, but it's an inexpensive FA signing with a cheap 2017 option if he works out.

  7. Just be sure to try a lot of different masks if your first one isn't comfortable. Don't give up on it. Once you get the right mask, the right fit, and the right pressure, you'll sleep better than you ever have. Good luck!

  9. foster parents for the time being. Does he have any indication on how long he'll be a foster? It could be days, weeks, months or even years right? apparently. part of what's so amazing, IMO, that they're doing this- truly selfless thing. I wish them nothing but the best.

  10. I might give tim's logic a little credence if the 'center left' Democrat we were talking about wasn't Hillary. Hillary will carry her base. But she will get very few of the undecided voters. She has too much baggage and too many 'anyone but Hillary' voters. The only way a Trump or Cruz gets elected is if Hillary is the opponent. Also, for what it is worth, it pains me to see Rubio identified as "center right." He's only "center right" in that he's to the left of Trump/Cruz. But he's pretty far out there on the right otherwise. You want 'center right' give me Kasich. Or Huntsman. Why he d

  11. Had to go back and forth to Indiana the past three weeks due to my father being in the hospital. Because of the short notice and undetermined time, we had to pack up the cats and bring with. My mom was gracious enough to let us keep them in one of the bedrooms even though they have two cats. All four of the cats were together for 4 days straight and acted pretty well together. We did keep our cats locked in the bedroom whenever we left the house. A few nose touches, hisses and butt sniffs, but no major fights or issues. Our cats were up most of the time we were there only sleeping peri

After a few days of hiding, they have completely integrated into the house and family... and floppinha is back in love. I'll try to get some pics up soon.

  22. RIP No idea he was sick, either. Multi-talented, also an actor, great in the Roeg movie The Man Who Fell To Earth, as well as the Merry Christmas one as a Japanese POW. So many great songs. Station To Station. Golden Years. Fame. The Five Years doc is highly recommended. I liked that he was a chameleon and constantly changing his sound. Making an album like Low that sounded absolutely NOTHING like what preceded it took courage and was an act of artistic integrity.

  25. Ok, ONE more... because who doesn't love a good story. I found this random cat walking in front of my place about 18 months ago. She seemed in pretty good shape, couldnt be feral, and was unusually friendly, but in an odd way. I sensed something wrong and brought out some food and water just in case. OMG - she was ravenous. Something was up. Figured I would put up some signs and her family would find her. Took her to the Vet, boom - she's pregnant and going to burst in like a week or two. Someone never got her spade and gave her up when she got preg :-( BUT, somehow I found her wandering

  26. Been almost a month, so bump with some pics. For those who don't know, or forget, or can't remember who is who on here, I had surgery about 6 weeks back - like super major abdominal removing parts of my body (colon in this case, saved the intestine, barely)... while recouping at home (was literally IN BED for first 2-3 weeks at home, and not much movement until the New Year) my younger guy was simply amazing. My wife and I say he's like a dog at times - but he totally "protected" me, was with me the whole time. Our other cat, older, female, and we saved her from a really bad place when she w

  27. You really can't imagine that? After they already framed him for rape? Really? The head sheriff (and his arresting officer in 85) refuses to admit he's even innocent of the first crime. I can't imagine how anyone could give those crooked Fers the benefit of doubt. Did we watch the same documentary?Probably not a huge stretch to say that the cop copying Avery's mugshot and then showing that drawing to the woman was essentially framing him.

  30. I guess we can have that discussion when we get there...we are not remotely close to there. if by "remotely close" you mean a season then I would agree with you. He pulls the same shenanigans on another team next year whether its Dallas or whoever then the kid is done. Kaput.perhapsLet me guess....Texas A&M alum? Or Manziel's cousin? Even the big mouths who were tooting Johnny Crackpipe's horn all year have abandoned the thread. At this point, most people are hoping he straightens out before he ends up dead. No one is thinking of an NFL career anymore. Vince Young and Jamarcus Rus

  36. Is there any reason to assume the car was parked and the battery removed while he was still bleeding? 5 days elapsed between the killing and the discovery of the car. Don't know if it's been talked about - but how is her date/time of death known? I don't want to sound too gruesome or anything, but she could have been held captive or something for a few days. I think you can say that 5 days elapsed between when she was last seen and the discovery of the car, but not between her death and the discovery of the car. Well obviously I think her body was in the fire on Halloween. Do we know if t

  38. It's called the dreadmill for a reason. In the winter time, while at work, I'll put my gym bag in the car then slide the key + remote inside of one of my gloves. Barely even notice it's there. Spring/Summer/Fall I just have to remember to pack shorts with a pocket. I have the same road ID Chief mentioned and I never need water over a 30-45 minute run. Longer runs from home, I create a path that gives me fluid options after an hour or so and repeat options every 15-20 minutes. Sometimes it's a park, sometimes it's home. The park that I do the bulk of my trail running has water fountains

  39. That was the real problem, not Jackson holding the ball in the hand away from the defender. That, and getting outscored 38-7 after that drive. I know you love to hate on Jackson but the Redskins lost yesterday because their defense was bad, and their offense scored 7 points in the last 3 quarters.
