Thank God we have minimal public transportatin in New Mexico. LOL

I heard that Albuquerque has a pretty good commuter rail line along the I-25 Corridor.

Denver is trying to do something similar with RTD along the I-25 Corridor.  I believe Amtrak identified the corridor as a future high speed corridor?   Huh

No Home Ec?  Bummer....you missed out on all the meatloaf recipes!  ;-)

I faintly recall making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the 6th Grade.  The older students made salads and cakes.  I also remember taking typing; I still remember my home keys even though I'm a fast fat fingered typist (say that five times).

Most likely those who made Alveus Lacuna's lunch didn't have Home Ec either....as they skipped the drumstick...a crucial part of every fried chicken meal! Wink

I like fried chicken breast - more meat and juicy meat, yummy.   laugh  Time to visit my local KFC.   Smiley

I wonder why some states are leaner. At first I thought maybe it had to do with outdoorsy activity, but after thinking about it I don't think that is a major factor.

I have it on my "to buy" list, but I don't have enough money to buy it this month. Hopefully I'll be able to get it in December. But then again, that would mean 3-5 less books to read! What a dilemma Huh

Well, I'll put it this way.  I initially got it since I wanted something to tide me over until Mass Effect 2.  Now...  I would rather have Dragon Age 2 released (there has been talk about them written the storyline for the sequel), over Mass Effect 2.  This is coming from a Sci-Fi junky too.  laugh

We have a comuter rail between Albuquerque and Santa Fe that takes twice as long as driving and makes for a far more expensive trip if several people are going together. Futher, its bleeding out financially.

We have a lovely Amtrak line near us (Missouri River Runner) that we take every time we go to Chicago. It costs much less than driving, takes about an equal amount of time, and is stress-free. I'm not sure why your route is so different.

Though it doesn't hold up completely, maybe soul food is part of the problem.  Tongue  I feel like death after eating that.

I bet a visit to Ben's Chili Bowl in Washington, DC will change that attitude. 

While I've passed by there many times, I have yet to eat there.

Well...it seems Michigan is one of the pudgy states.  The economy is bad...so people eat.  It's comfort food.  McDonald's has a great $1 menu (so I've heard.)

You leave for work in the morning...it's dark outside.  You leave work at 5...it's already dark outside.  So, other than the weekends you don't see the sun (unless you sit by a window).  You drive home in the dark and you sit down to eat...and because it so dark you assume it's bedtime...so with a full tummy you go to sleep.

It's cold in the winter....so, you eat and get almost no exercise.   Sure folks exercise in the summer...we are a great outdoors state.  However, when the bitter winter sets in...other than the diehards who go skiing and aren't afraid of their noses freezing off....the rest of us hibernate for 1/2 the year.

Ergo....the extra curvy figures.

This would have to be the most pointless thread I've seen since I've been here, much less participated in.

And believe it or not, this was pretty much the intent of the thread... so maybe it is one of the ones that has stayed "on topic" the longest!

Ever experience one of those times when you've been up for a day and a half or more, and you think you'd better go to sleep, but part of you wonders how long you could stay awake before you were absolutely forced to go to sleep from exhaustion? Yeah. I think I'll just pop in a DVD and go to sleep, lol. Good night all.

Ever experience one of those times when you've been up for a day and a half or more, and you think you'd better go to sleep, but part of you wonders how long you could stay awake before you were absolutely forced to go to sleep from exhaustion? Yeah. I think I'll just pop in a DVD and go to sleep, lol. Good night all.


I've done this way too many times while in the military and college.  It doesn't work well.

This is so true, especially at schools without a software engineering programme.

I've started putting up my Christmas lights today. They are all solar powered so I can light up every tree in the front garden with no fear of reproof.
I just realised this is the fifth Christmas this thread is going to see.

When I first read this my immediate thought was "Noooo! It's not even Thanksgiving yet!" Then I realized "Hey, he's in Australia. He doesn't give a rat about our Thanksgiving."

Here in the States, the fourth Thursday of November is when we celebrate Thanksgiving and is the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season. So what calls in the Christmas season in your neck of the woods?

Up here the instant Hallowe'en is over, the Christmas season starts.  All the Hallowe'en candy, costumes and commercials vanish, and Christmas things are everywhere.

Stores must do a massive inventory blitz that night.  You walk in on Nov. 1, and there are trees, Santas, ornaments, faux snow, etc.  Tongue

For me personally its Advent which began yesterday (I'm on the Revised Julian Menologion).
