Re: Musing on hotels

1. Probably the biggest reason I can come up with is that the Marriott's and Hilton's give it away free to their preferred guest programs. That and perhaps an extra hour of late checkout is about all you get.

That's pretty well true [more]

Re: Games

I would think that Grue - or any engineering type - would love it.


I will likely give it another try, but I don't play games much any more. I might play Candy Crush for a few minutes, but I'll never use up the 200 lives I have [more]

Another hit

LW's father was taken to the hospital late last week. He had a high fever and fluid started building up in his lungs. They entubated him and put him in ICU. His organs began shutting down.

We went up on Saturday, expecting to say goodbye to [more]

Re: Good morning!

It's almost as good as Sacher Torte.

Which is too dry, IMO! (It is intended to be served with whipped cream to add more moisture.)

I prefer Kaserschmarren or Topfenstrudel, personally.

Awwwww. They named her after a sausage. Cute. :)

I lived in Vienna for almost five years and never once saw anything remotely resembling a "Vienna sausage".

Re: BFO

Maybe your definition of hard is different than mine. I don't think prison or jail, which is what I think of when I hear coming down hard, is the answer.

I agree we need to get them off the streets.

Re: And The Hits....

Sorry for the downer but this has always been a place where we can just let it out.


That's right. I wish there was something I could do or say to make this hurt less, but I have no words that will take the pain away.

Re: BFO

AA is not addiction treatment -- AA is a support group.

Medically-supervised, residential treatment programs have the best success at achieving sobriety. After that there are a number of other approaches which are more effective than AA

Re: BFO

Maybe he'd like a breathalyzer attached to and interlocked with the ignition of his car or have his license pulled or spend some time in the slammer.

Quite frankly, the choice oughta be a year in jail or AA.

Unfortunately, it probably won't do any good. First, it made him mad. Second, nobody makes any major lifestyle changes until the status quo becomes too uncomfortable.

A friend is ranting on Facebook about how horrible AA is and that the courts shouldn't force people to go. It sounds like he got a DWI and they told him to attend meetings.

Windows has been poop since XP.
I think that was the last decent version they ever had.

I will stick to the Mac, thankyouverymuch.

I have also fallen out of love with the HP laptop (Or taplop, as I calls it.) The touch screen has stopped working. The touch pad is a mess. I use a mouse to try to control the thing. So I am once again in the market for a lap top for [more]

I opted for portability over functionality on this trip by bringing my iPad instead of a laptop.
