Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


I loaded all of mine to Itunes also (nearly 70k titles between me and the kids). I know everyone bashes Itunes, but I've had little problem with them.

The biggest issue was compatibility with Sonos. I had to copy everything to Google. That was a grueling weekend - three day weekend at that.

Getting rid of the lettuce would definitely make that burger more manageable. Good call

Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


It occurred to me this morning that a business card with the wrong phone number on it would be handy to give to somebody that you don稚 really want to give your card to you.

Kind of like a girl at the bar.

It also occurred to me that I could give a friends business card away. I値l have to get more of them.

Stop loss orders are a necessity, but a market order is only good if there is an available buyer in the market.

Happy to live in a state with no firearm licenses except for CCW.

Go to store, grab gun, fill out paper and go home in 10 minutes 1,000 dollars poorer.

Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


After my dogs bath he runs around like a nut, last week I heard yelp while cleaning up after the event and it turns out he tore his ACL. Hes been hoping around and lets me rub it, massage it whatever but wont put weight on it.

After 4 days took him to the vet and she gave the verdict.
Pain killers and anti inflammatory for a week and re assess.
