    Re: RIP, Veishea

    The problem as I see it: one of the pro-VEISHEA arguments running through this thread is "Now there will be riots because there is no VEISHEA," which can be simplified to "Riots because VEISHEA." ...

    Re: Most Annoying word or phrase

    I can't stand "as to." Most of the time it seems like nothing more than verbal filler. "He was not sure as to which choice he should make." Argh. It seems that it is becoming more and more...

    Re: Templeton Rye is a Fake

    Re: Templeton Rye...yes, please!

    If you like Templeton Rye but balk at the price and/or marketing of the product, try George Dickel Rye or Bulleit Rye. They are both made from the same stock at MGP (previously LDI among others)...

    Re: Your wild plane ride stories, please

    My dad just quit flying as a private pilot, so I have few stories. He flew a Mooney Ranger and later a Mooney 201. Two that come to mind: one time we were flying to Oshkosh and hit an unexpected...

    Re: Friday OT - Your "Meh" Sports

    NBA. And I used to love it. I was totally into the "Showtime" Lakers, enjoyed watching the Celtics even though they were the Lakers rival, hated the Pistons with a burning fury, etc. I appreciated...

    Burn the house down. Then make sure the insurance claims person hates spiders, too. They will hopefully understand and cut a fat check.

    Re: Who's been to France?

    Clonefan32 pretty much said everything I was going to say. The D-day beaches are pretty awesome in a solemn, introspective way. Mont St. Michel is really neat, I thought. Eiffel Tower, yep, Louvre,...

    Re: Favorite Summer Cocktail

    A few of things:

    Gin and Tonic,

    Something I improvised which is more or less a Tom Collins: shot of gin, shot of lemon juice, fill with Sprite.

  14. Re: Car issue for you mechanically minded people.

    And just to be fair, my last car was a GM (Cadillac) and still a POS. The difference between now and then is about $1000 less if I have a problem.

    Yeah, I knew I'd get this reaction from at least one person. :)
