Well, at least watch the 1st offensive series or so. Then, it's sub time.

Sometimes, they just have to learn it on their own. Co-worker today was happy to have Le Cellier and Cinderella's castle for dinner in October. When I asked what time there reservation was, the answer was "you need a reservation"?

First of all,returning you to shore was never part of our agreement. Second, you are not a pirate, so the Pirate's Code does not apply. And third, the Pirate's Code is more of a set of what you'd call 'guidelines' than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl.

My Zombie Apocalypse Vehicle of choice







The main superstructure is mainly manufactured from 6 to 12 mm of armour steel and the bottom is mine strengthened, the front windows are bullet-resistant and equipped with protective hatches. The vehicle has continuous six wheel drive and good capabilities for off-road driving. It can take inclines up to a maximum of 60°.

The XA series has no standard armament, but is equipped with a rotating turret-structure for installation of light/heavy machine guns or autocannons. It also has 8 BMP style firing ports on the sides and rear. Therefore passengers, usually a squad of infantry, can fire their weapons from the cover of the armor.

The XA series is popular in peacekeeping missions due to its mobility, non-aggressive looks, and good protection against mines and improvised explosive devices (IED). The vehicle also offers a good combination of armament, comfort, mine protection, protection against shrapnel and small calibre fire, road speed, short time of learning how to drive, and an acceptable terrain mobility.

My zombie Survival strategy includes having an army of pooh sized neighbors.

Right now they are happy as hell to receive all those tastey dessert items...But little do they know.

Good question. I had to think about his one for a bit but a visit to the "Art of Disney" Store always seems to creep in. Never bought anything, but we like to dream.

Be glad your not a Cleveland Browns fan; since 1999 we Browns fans would be thrilled to see our team perform up to the level of that seen at the HOF game.

CRUD...

Ok so on Saturday night I sit down to relax and surf a bit only to find that my hard drive would not boot. I had an extra drive due to DW getting a new computer and being able to swap out the drives for her a little over a year ago.

So I know that I should back up more often but I ran a full backup using Norton 360 only a month ago. or so I thought.

I finally got a "working" machine here but all of my data files were corrupted from Norton's backup. I cannot read any of the picture files, my iTunes library is non-existant (and yes this was backed up and restored) even my Quicken file is corrupted to the point where Quicken tells me that it cannot read the file.

Any ideas out there from any of you tech savvy folks that could point a guy in the right direction?

Today was our 7th Wedding Anniversary we went to the Outback for Dinner After chowing down on the buffalo strips, tangy tomato dressing on the salad, a steak & a few cokes, we hit a few stores to check out the toy section (DS was at my parents house). Well let me tell you the good ole' fart cannon was working in it's prime It looked like some were going to drop right there in the aisle I did notice a few guys that had the look that they would love to claim it I'll probably be sleeping on the couch tonite

My boy is only 2, so not yet, but it's nice to get a preview on stuff to get for him....we've been reading to him since he was in Utero, and he loves books!!

Cornfuzz, I notice you're under 30 days---good news for me too

When do festivities in the cornfield kick off?

Nice!!!

And more mobile than an MRAP--which is also known as "Roll over Roxeanne"
