Re: Random Thoughts Again

Your family has my sincere sympathies, Carl. Hang in there, brother. I randomly picked a post to thank everyone for the condolences expressed about losing my M I L. As noted previously, it was a blessing that she passed peacefully once hospice arrived on the scene and her pain was adequately contro...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Come on spring!! Right now I'll settle for a temperature above freezing. This really does remind me of the winters of 77/78, not reaching freezing in like forever. In 77 we did not reaching freezing for over 4 months so I suspect we will make above that magical 32 degree level before that period of...

At least he is retiring honorably, not like others who want die in the saddle, ooops, the throne.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Glad you got through the approval process and hope you feel better soon. That's a pain to deal with. My next door neighbor has been dealing with insurance companies of late for his own medical issues and has a similar story to yours. It really shouldn't be that much of a hassle. No it should not be...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Happy days......the insurance company phoned me Friday afternoon, the last business day of the year to say they "approved my surgery", finally. It happens next Wednesday so no use waiting to the last minute or anything. This was the ninth call about them approving the surgery. The first se...

Re: Fiesta Bowl vs. Washington PreGame Thread

I am completely unimpressed with the way we run the RPO. I understand that this type of offense wants to keep the defense on their toes and off balance but I loathe that we have the greatest running back in my lifetime at PSU and we don't give him the ball while he is moving. This guy is a beast an...

Re: Fiesta Bowl vs. Washington PreGame Thread

I agree, what is the issue with having a variation that throws the defense off a bit? I'm looking forward to Rahne's tenure. He called the bowl game in Hack's senior season when he was hurt and we saw McSorley for the first time. He did very well in my opinion and credit part of that to Rahne's guid...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I have one that extends into the hearth and it cost me $3,200 installed. That was the cash price. The non-cash price was a little over $200 more. They are not cheap. But, I know it costs in because I use a lot less oil than most of my neighbors, including those with smaller houses. My family room i...
