    A 13 year old weasel walks into a bar and approaches the counter. The bartender immediately notices the underage weasel. “Sir, you look extremely young. I can’t serve you even a single beer.” “Oh c’mon. You can’t just slide me one?” “Can’t and will not serve to anyone under age.” “Fine. Well what other things do you have?” “Well for non-alcoholic drinks I have tap water and bottled water, I have coffee, and I have pop. Which would you like?” “Pop.” Goes the weasel.

    These are really good, and I thought some of you might be interested. Here's the 3rd Place winner in the Rescue Dog category, which comes with a great story. The woman who took the pic is a young professional pet photographer, and really good. If you like pics of dogs, her website is above and here, and well worth a visit: http://www.dogbreathphoto.com More Kennel Club contest winners, including past years: http://www.dogphotographeroftheyear.org.uk/2016-Winners-Gallery

    I watched American Sniper again last night, mostly 'cause I have to clear space on my VCR but also because it's a pretty good movie. I got a chuckle--in light of this thread--of the scene where the black Seal says the 2100 yard shot on "Mustafa" is going to be "impossible." Kyle later said the shot depicted (his longest) was "a total luck shot." I don't know how you even see someone who's hiding 2100 yards out, at least not the way the movie shows it. I'd think you'd be using spotting scopes and that kind of sh...stuff. The movie kinda fell down on the job showing the role of spotters, if you ask me. Wish they'd done a little bit better job on that.

    I agree. Part of why I put that/those particular chart(s) up there. You (I) could say the same thing or at least similar things about several other items there, such as universal background checks for private sales of personal property and creating a federal data base. I would love to see the actual questions asked, because we all know that how you word a question means so much in these cases. For instance, who isn't for keeping guns out of the hands of "the mentally ill"? Now define "mentally ill." As far as the no-fly and watch lists go, I just don't think very many people understand the due process angle, the bureaucracy, the incompetence, etc. Same goes for anything under the surface, really. If only there were a way that people could get and absorb facts and ideas...LOL

    It's dismaying that so many favor unconstitutional prior restraint on an enumerated fundamental right with no due process (the support for banning firearm purchases for people on watch/no-fly lists).

    Amazon might have some competition elsewhere as well. Share price has risen above the "discussion price" last time I was paying attention. Walmart rumored to be in the mix.

    LOL... Amazon is on track to pay about $13.7 billion, but if you don't absolutely HAVE to have organic food you could get it for about 9.

    LOL...The green in those is a lot brighter than mine. Mine are more like an OD. There's nothing like calling a gobbler up over a rise and flashing your big honkin' black or cream soles at him... Don't laugh. I spent a whole morning sweating that once.

    I only came to that conclusion late in life. Back in the day I wasn't that impressed, probably mostly just because I was listening to so much other stuff, and not really in that genre. I did get a full dose of Cheap Trick summers, though. I ran a Ferris wheel and had a big FAST horse ride (like a carousel) next to me. They had a big sound system and Cheap Trick was a favorite. Spent many an hour catching rays or chatting up chicks who wanted to "stop at the top" while listening to I Want You To Want Me and Surrender blasting from next door...LOL...Might have put me off them a bit, actually. :-) I don't think I was there past 1978 or 9, so my Cheap Trick connection dried up and I had to pick them up again on my own much later in my musical journey...LOL <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/m7pJLEwc8Ro" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> You can thank me later: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/0J8pL5JL9u8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Even though they had their share of success and were even inducted into the R&R Hall of Fame last year, I've always thought that Cheap Trick was still somewhat underrated. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dFkbSAH7yb4?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/-qgpewMCVjs?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ADWG6EXrbcE?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> I even forgave them for covering some classic Fats Domino because they did such a good job with it.... <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/EyW1p7SpYW8?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> The problem is that my favorite of theirs...Surrender...was forever ruined for me by this segment from the Universal Studios Orlando commercial that aired in 2003-sh.

    LOL...I didn't have Caribou, but I did have GBYBR. I'm not 100% sure, but I think I got GBYBR after Captain Fantastic. Elton John was a little bit of joke in my circle, but most of us were smart enough to know he was making good music.---LOL My first album in my collection was Robin Trower's Bridge of Sighs, so I guess you could say I like almost all kinds of music...:-)

    We're so old. I didn't have Captain Fantastic, but I did get both Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Caribou when they came out in '73 & '74, respectively. Now, in retrospect, I'm not really sure why...other than the fact that I was 12/13 years old at the time...and it was the '70s.

    Ha! Good catch. I'd forgotten about that song. It always reminded me of this one: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Sw2Lptf7K0E" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> BTW---I wore that album out (Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy). Seeing the cover art again after all these years gives me goosebumps. I remember exactly when and where I got it, and who was there. July 1975.

    Now that you mention it....the young guy in the office next to mine is from Jordan, as is his wife. I've been acting as sort of his professional mentor for quite a while, and every time I help him out with something in any significant way (including non-work-related stuff) he goes home and tells his wife about it. She then makes a dessert or some other dish and then he brings some in for me as a show of gratitude. Luckily she's quite the good little cook, and makes a particularly delicious Kanafah (I'll let you Google that one). I'll bet I could put a bug in his ear about my fondness for Falafel and end up getting a regular supply delivered to my desk free of charge. But that would be wrong of me....I think...maybe.
