    What's the weather like where you are?

    I have close relatives that live in North & South Carolina, and Florida. They take the time to always remind me how beautiful the weather is 'down there' every Winter, especially when a major snow event happens here. So in the same spirit for once, I just wanted to point out that 90% of the time, a hurricane 'down there' means awesome late Summer/early Fall weather up here. Instead of 8 days of stinging rain, sideways rain, and sand-filled salty rain, I get beautiful orange sunsets, colorful trees, and 70 degree windless weather to enjoy. I sound like a shallow prick don't I ? Please remember that come January.
  4. https://www.pri.org/stories/2015-09-07/ship-built-cias-most-audacious-cold-war-mission-now-headed-scrapyard This is the conspiracy I remember best. In the 4th or 5th grade we did a section on oceanography. There was a poster in our classroom showing all the different means used to explore the oceans. Mr. Hughes' supposedly had the idea of mining the oceans for precious minerals. That was a new idea, and was part of the poster. All a CIA cover to raise a sunken Russian sub. That wasn't revealed until I was in High School. I don't believe in most conspiracies, but this incident is always a reminder to me that our gov't and others are capable of doing some shady covert stuff.

  7. https://www.freep.com/story/entertainment/music/brian-mccollum/2018/09/13/grande-ballroom-national-register-historic-places-restoration/1280764002/ One of Detroit's cherished rock 'n' roll landmarks looks destined for the National Register of Historic Places. After a decade-long quest by a determined group of supporters, the Grande Ballroom is set to make the federal registry, overseen by the National Park Service. It would join at least 18 other music and arts related properties in Detroit already on the list. Approval would help the property qualify for tax credits, financing and grants — paving the way for restoration of the dilapidated building that was once the epicenter of Detroit's counterculture.

    "I can't leave.....who's going to watch my doggies ?" You're right lady. Since the dogs are obviously smarter than you, it would be a tough choice. Since you've already established your own rescue pecking order, I'm for saving the dogs and leaving you behind. Keep those biscuits and milk bones dry....you may need them.

    Just listened to their entire catalog a few months back. Did the same with Hot Tuna, New Riders of the Purple Sage, and Wishbone Ash. Lots of hidden gems that were never exposed on radio, flew under my radar back in the day, and all enjoyable.

    2018 NFL THREAD

    Quite a debacle last night. It's been a while since I tested my low baritone drone to that extent. My throat hurts. https://www.freep.com/story/sports/columnists/mitch-albom/2018/09/11/mitch-albom-detroit-lions/1263047002/ No Mitch, you're wrong. No one was booing Stafford. We were booing an organization....women, children, the young and the old. Everyone joined in. It was nasty, rude, crude, and so well deserved. A total vent that left nothing behind but apathy. The highlight of the way home was listening to the Jets players discuss how they knew all the plays and were calling them out at the line of scrimmage. Do you know how many times I've heard that since I was 8 years old ? This isn't going to get ugly...it already is. The players quit on our new 400 lb. sloth coach (I swear he gains 20 lbs. every time I see him. If he's a binge eater, he's got the wrong job !) They rejected his schemes, his military camp, his personality...everything. It's Washington Generals time again in Lion Land, and it's no secret....the fans know it, the players know it, and the league knows it. Hmmm....now which team should I adopt for the rest of the season ?
