Re: Movies

I think I understand what you are saying, Zwak, but I think it is because they have to do it this way. If we knew a lot of these actors too well from other movies, it would be hard to get rid of the bias. For instance - would anyone really want to see someone like Will Smith as Lando? Not me. I am a...

Maybe because it is the home to the College World Series and they have a really nice stadium designed for that purpose?
Also, better hotels and dining options.

Re: Simple Pleasures...

Baja Blast bring available outside of TBell again. I already stocked up for those cold winter months. I clearly remember going thru a Taco Bell drive thru and selecting that as my beverage when it was newly released. When I got to the window, the young man working the window handed me my drink, tol...

Re: WEATHERMANIA

One thing I found disconcerting was shoveling a little this morning while hearing songs of summer birds - the redwing blackbirds and robins in particular.
