    BREAKING NEWS:

    Women to be allowed in combat in the US military.

    Personally, I think this is a terrible idea. Prepare to be raped incessantly as a POW.

      Of course women have already been serving in a relatively limited combat capacity in the Air Force Security Forces for years.

      They all look like they would be a handful to deal with long-term.

      Wow...sad but also uplifting because a potentially life threatening situation turned into a good deed.

    Good morning fellow flamenons, it's Wednesday! #1 daughter bought me some 'gourmet' coffee for Christmas that is Merlot flavored...now I like Merlot, but found out this morning that I really don't like the taste first thing in the morning...then worried I would have wine breath coming to work, not pretty.

    Consider this a PSA in case you think wine flavored coffee would be a good gift for the wine lover in the family. o.O

      That's different. Brings to mind after dinner drinks that contain both coffee & liquor. One's a depressant and one's a stimulant. After indulging, wouldn't your body just rip right up the middle?

        Bbbbut, I get kahlua and coffee, but merlot coffee in the morning?? I drink it black, so it's that much more concentrated in flavor. No more for me, hubs is tossing it today. Back to a nice bold French roast.

    Apparently a fellow team mate killing someone a few months ago was not enough deterrence.

      Just another idiot that is waaaaaaay past his prime in the NFL. Give him an RC and a Moonpie and show him the door. It'll save millions on the salary cap if done before June 1st. JMHO......

        Oddly enough, I recognized the city name immediately. Had a customer at Wells Fargo from there that was always e-mailing me for replacement debit cards.

        So THAT'S where Sir Biddle left it! Thanks for the spot Jdizz. I'll have to go sanitize it now because I can't tell if he used it from the side or from the end.
