Re: GPL software upgrade.... & Other new things

Random thing: I don't have GPL set to auto-login at work. For the last couple weeks, every time I've gone to log in (from the portal page), it gives me an error of sorts (like I entered the wrong password or something) and brings me to that 2nd screen which then my login works. I believe that I hav...

Re: Movies

I think Singles may fall into this category of movies that sucked...quite possibly the best soundtrack for a movie in the 90's.

Re: College football 2019

Starting a new tradition this year of going to 1 college football game a year with some friends. I've only been to Minnesota, Iowa State and Notre Dame before. The first few years are going to be all SEC with LSU, A&M & Ole Miss among the first few. I'll be checking out Neyland Stadium in a few wee...

Re: Simple Pleasures...

In the 13 years I've lived in Minnesota I have yet to make it to the fair. I went to the Iowa State Fair almost every year growing up in Iowa so I don't have an aversion to going to the fair just haven't taken the time. I always enjoyed going to the fair on weekday evenings the most. Parking was usu...

Re: NCAA hockey 2019-20 season

St. Cloud is looking to reduce their rink sizes and asking for funding from the State Legislature for refrigeration update. Brooks Center upgrade

Just another arena looking to do what is the inevitable by getting rid of old R-22 systems.

Re: Restaurant

I rarely ever eat fried chicken anymore but if I did I'd probably do Popeye's over Canes, Churches, or KFC or whatever (there's probably other options but I'm not familiar). I’m from Iowa where the only proper chicken is a BROASTED chicken!! :dup: And a goddamn good wedding reception brings in the ...

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

I just don't get the appeal to The Current. I've tried to listen to it because I've had some friends tell me to give it a chance. Each time I've tried I've heard one song in a couple hours that I actually liked. Admittedly Mankato has a $h!teee radio selection but I can handle even the worst station...

Re: Got Beer?

I suppose I should report on my Toppling Goliath experience yesterday. Went down for their Mornin' Delight release (lotto/ticket event). It was obviously a madhouse. Lines were everywhere, not really organized well inside. One long line was actually 3 lines (to-go, reg drafts, special drafts that o...

My first thought too when I saw the khaki pants. When my daughter worked at Target in high school she had a supervisor named Jake. I'm named him Jake from State Farm, now when we see him in the store we still call him that.

At least with the Boldy pick there are way less people saying WTF like they did when the Wild drafted Filip Johannson in 2018.

Re: The Music Never Stopped: What Are You Listening To?

This past weekend I worked at Mankato Ribfest with having the Lancers take tickets and usher the reserved seating sections all three nights. 38 Special, Dwight Yoakam, and Vince Neil were the headliners each night. Quite the diverse line up in both bands and concert goers. I'm not a country fan but ...

Well that's fun...
I've read this story before....the last time he ended up leaving Minnesota for Florida when he couldn't get his starting job back after an injury.
