Re: Get Ready Baron

(still waiting on my mcdouble ;)...)


Oh yes... You were the first one to correctly identify a movie I quoted from, so I owe you dinner if you're ever in Chicago. A McDouble is all you want, though? You're a really cheap date. [more]

Re: Get Ready Baron

Next time I visited the Pier was in either 2012 or 2011. Went in May on company trailing. We took a yacht cruise (about 100 of us) from the Pier, had dinner, all you can drink, etc. This lasted 2-3 hours into the evening. Had a nice view of Lake [more]

If you needed any extra reasons to avoid Navy Pier <g>.


In all my 19 years in Chicago, I've been to Navy Pier only twice. The first time was shortly after I moved here -- my work group had a business meeting at a site [more]

Re: There goes Norway

But that's fine by me because I like the Amish. I like their values and beliefs so they don't scare me.


And the Amish don't appear to have any interest in "taking over", anyway. All indications are that they simply [more]

Re: Burger King Visit

Re: Burger King Visit

I've always loved their Whopper, given the broiling instead of the grilling....gives it extra flavor.

My favorite of all time is BK's original chicken sandwich. The one that's shaped like a sub. If the chicken patty is fresh from the

Re: When should you take Social Security

If you take a bit of Bean-O, you won't have any G-bombs. ;-)


There's another way, apparently. Yesterday a friend of mine posted on Facebook about some bean soup he made. When the "G-bomb" subject came up (in so many [more]

Re: When should you take Social Security

If you want to make it to 100, don't be too much over five foot tall. For every inch over 5 foot, your life span drops 1.7%.


Well, I'm only 5'5" without shoes, so I guess I'm going to live long. Woohoo!

Re: SMH

Us people with Asperger's can eat the same thing every day and not get tired of it. In fact we tend to stick with the things we like. We buy the same things at the grocery store every time we go. Hence my love of chicken leg quarters. I like them [more]

Re: Beheaded By A Bad Rapper

They're not even singing in rap "music."


IMO, rap is more a form of poetry than it is actual music.

Re: Beheaded By A Bad Rapper

I recognize that there are differences in taste - and that there is
