You learn something new every day. :) And I think that's good, in that there'd be less people mispronouncing her name, as even her pre-school teacher does at times, hehe.

Better that than eating anchovies straight out of the can. :P  Couldn't taste the fish for the salt.

I did not know that. Well, then, we'll have Worcestershire sauce only on fish days. We use it to make steak sauce for our "eggplant steaks."

technically if you are using a trap then you probably would have to have a trapper's license as well.

Ok George, even if it's an urban legend, and it is, it's still fun to say if you technically needed a license to catch mice you'd need a trapping permit as well.   :police:

They can't use traps in Cleveland, the whole town including the traps are rusty. They fall apart right away!

I've seen some who could curl 140 lb. dumbbells or was that incline bench press ... incline bench press.

I once observed a guy take two 80 pound dumbells and curl them with great effort.  But he still made it several times.  Both arms.  He also benched out at 450.  His arms were the size of my head, and his shoulders took up the door frame.  He had to enter sideways.  It was almost evil!

I hit the wall at around 215 where I could do 3 good reps.  I also lost a lot of weight during that time.  That was 5 years ago.

I find its a matter of tempering and doing smaller weights and building up to it.  Go slow, and you will be rewarded.  Try to act like a high school muscel jock, and your bicep suddely pops like corn in a copper cettle....uh..kettle....,  and you'll never lift again.

It's that time of year...


A Red Sox fan liked to amuse himself by scaring every Yankees fan he saw strutting down the street in an obnoxious NY pinstripe shirt. He would swerve his van as if to hit them, then swerve back just missing them.

One day, while driving along, he saw a priest. He thought he would do a good deed, so he pulled over and asked the priest, "Where are you going, Father?" "I'm going to give Mass at St. Francis church, about two miles down the road," replied the priest. "Climb in, Father. I'll give you a lift!" The priest climbed into the passenger seat, and they continued down the road.

Suddenly, the driver saw a Yankees fan walking down the road, and he instinctively swerved as if to hit him. But, as usual, he swerved back onto the road just in time. Even though he was certain that he had missed the guy, he still heard a loud THUD. Not knowing where the noise came from, he glanced in his mirrors but still didn't see anything.

He then remembered the priest, and he turned to the priest and said, "Sorry, Father, I almost hit that Yankees fan."

"That's OK," replied the priest, "I got him with the door."

What would the movie Scarface (the Al Pacino version) look like if all the actors were cats?
It would be a musical:

Memory, see my goons bow to my power
A power that is fading
Enemies wither like the sunflower
They plead for mercy, but I yawn
Can't be bothered today

Midnight, not a sound from the pavement
Emilio will be a memory
I am smiling alone in the lamplight
Frank is here to collect his fee
And the wind begins to moan

Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I smile at the old days, Cuba was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew when happiness was
But memories can't live again

Every heat lamp
Seems to beat out a fatalistic warning
Someone mutters and I put down the butter
For soon I will no longer be mourning

Daylight, my day ends at the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in to what Omar wants
But Omar will be a memory too
And my new, rich life will begin

Burnt out ends and smoky haze
The stale cold smell of morning
Mel Bernstein lies and the game is over
But a new day is dawning

Touch me, it's so easy to leave me
Gina, we still have the memory
Oh Manny, why have you done this to me?
You'll understand I cannot forgive

Boom
A new day has begun
