Re: Random Thoughts Again

I'm not normally inclined to share much personal information, but I found an old photo of me and my childhood mentor. https://images.dailykos.com/images/102651/story_image/peabodyII.JPG?1409245477 Mrs psu_dad : You have brown hair. And you have 10 fingers. Me : So it's a bad photo. Sue me. And I'll...

Re: What I am thankful for

Just watched For Whom the Bell Tolls on TMC....a great movie and one of my favorite Gary Cooper films. It is also the only Hemingway novel that translated succesdfully to the silver screen. It was true to the novel and the only film that Hemingway was pleased with.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

It's time we enforced the gun laws already on the books. You make some valid points, Carl, but this argument about enforcing laws already on the books is a tired one, a red herring right out of the NRA talking points. I would to love to know which laws are not being enforced. Regardless of skill le...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Hello I am sorry to let you know that my dad passed away last week after his long fight with cancer. He passed unexpectedly in his sleep, his heart just gave out. Dad enjoyed the debate and information sharing on this and other sites. I am sure he will be waiting for the rest of you to continue you...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Once again, folks, we seem to be oblivious to the real solution for ending school shootings....either that or you're just not paying attention. "I know this is going to cause all kinds of angst: The solution is we need concealed carry in these schools," Limbaugh told Fox News Sunday. There...

Re: Penn State Hoops.

If you promise me they won't do anything from post 1982, I'll be happy to go see Chicago with you. Yes, that's a bingooooo!.... (just watched Inglorious Basterds again for the 800th time). I agree about the later work. They started the set with later work which is why it turned off the younger set ...

Re: Penn State Hoops.

Chicago is one group guaranteed to provide a great, live performance. Yes, they're old, but several of the founding members were still active the last time I checked. I've always loved Chicago's particular fusion of rock and jazz. Unfortunately, some of my younger colleagues did not appreciate them ...

Re: Beer and Booze

Mad I went with a Highland Park 15. It was on sale for $85. And it apparently won some kind of award recently. Doing a finger right now with a splash of water (I usually prefer ice but for the first drink I want to taste only the whisky). It's really nice. I prefer it to the McCallan 15 I recently ...

Re: Beer and Booze

I could have sworn we kicked this topic off here already but I don't see it. Anyway, thought we could use a less serious off season topic. And, nothing is less serious than beer and booze. First, the beer. I've been on a pilsner kick lately. The guy at my local beer store recommended the Lagunitas ...
