    Just saw the Motley Crue video. Talk about going down memory lane there. Great call as I used to live for those shows, amazing it was 25 years ago. Can picture Nikki Sixx's drum set spinning as if it were yesterday.

        Sir Biddle, SHAME

        Mötley Crüe is an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1981. The group was founded by bass guitarist Nikki Sixx, and drummer Tommy Lee, who were later joined by lead guitarist Mick Mars and lead singer Vince Neil. Mötley Crüe has been described through the years as the World's Most Notorious Rock Band and has sold more than 80 million album copies worldwide,[1][2] including 25 million in the U.S.[3]

        • Sir Biddle

          Gulp. I have no excuse. Walking shamelessly away in guilt. I'm an idiot.

    Good belated morning all, from a warm and sunny Denver!
    The happy news today, is that my property's annual audit just wrapped and I've got a clean bill of health for another year. My boss, maybe not so much.

    So what is your "go to" snack(s) for the game?? My new favorite is Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Chicken Dip.

    • Sir Biddle

      Bam!!! Your idea a year or so ago has now become my tradition as I like anything hot wing sauce-like

        I entered the Buffalo Hot Wing flavor in the Lays Potato Chip contest...but alas I guess it didn't win as I never got the $1 million check...

      I put Frank's on everything. I think they stole the slogan on the back of the bottle from me. I put it in my Cream o' Wheat the other day. LOL

      (Don't you just hate it when people spell in front of you?)
      Wang du pollo, nekkid, tossed in Asian sauce. Come to think of it, that's how I like my men.

      January 30, 2013 at 11:52 am |
      • Sir Biddle

        Not sure I would use wang and Asian sauce in the same sentence.

      Taco Bar was solid again today. Some of the best fajita chicken outside of a Mexican restaurant.

          Yeah, I saw the Tofu on that menu and loaded up an extra scoop of taco meat just for you.

          @ Biddle – I only eat where I make love.

          Oddly enough, I live behind a strip mall/grocery store. Anytime I step outside I smell either chinese food, mexican food, or fresh donuts. Depends on the time of day.

    The US economy contracted by 0.1% in the fourth quarter of 2012. President Obama is working to correct this by granting amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrants and passing restrictive gun laws.

      As I watch the county workers fill pot holes after three days of freezing rain while it snows.

      That should do the trick and last a while.

      I dub thee Wesley

      Lieutenant junior grade Wesley Robert Crusher was the gifted son of Starfleet officers Lieutenant Commander Jack Crusher and Doctor Beverly Crusher. After several years aboard the USS Enterprise-D and three years at Starfleet Academy, his Starfleet career was cut short when he dropped out of the Academy and continued on to a unique life, accompanying the transdimensional Tau Alphan The Traveler.

    Morning! Everyone seems to be in a slightly sarcastic mood today, just my kind of place. :-)

    Today is a foggy, dreary, soon to be rainy (Noah type rain), I need sunshine.

    It was a Dark and Stormy night.........My poor little avocado's had a rough ride--at least I have saved them from going under the knife for one more day. Stop Avocado Abuse People. This has been a Public Service Announcement–now back to your regularly scheduled Eatocracy.

      Just take them all to the landfill. They're worth more there....

      You bruised your avocado's on the ride? Maybe you should change to an air-ride seat & boxers.

        You have to get a smartphone so you can keep up with us even if work IT has put the clamp on your wild web surfing. Can't be looking up DDD content on the work PC and not expect them to red flag you.

        Hope all is well.
