She even mentioned spring break - yikes, I need to hop all over that and see what I can pull off. Not sure though - need to see what the teenagers think too. Have to include them in the planning now - it's not like the old days of "here's what we're doing and when..."

Happy Saturday! I'm ticked that I have to go to a wedding at 4:30. Got to admit, I was happy to see the Niners step up this year. Always respect a team that can win withplayers who haven't been given much respect over the years. Its just a shame that I won't be able to see Drew take them down.

A buddy of mine from work (yes from here in TO), flew down to San Francisco yesterday and is going to the game, and then the Grand Canyon, etc...

OOOOhhhh, the Grand Canyon. I haven't been there in many years. Flown over it many times in the past decade. I need to get back there. What a great experience that is.


Of course I have ridden past the "edge" of it many, many times, including how it may have "looked in pre-historic days when dinos roamed the earth" thanks to the grand circle tour on the Disneyland Railroad. I love that Grand Canyon Diorama. Simple pleasures, from a simpler time. I can still hear those dino roars in my mind.

I like the dinos at the Universe of Energy too - which of course were a recreation of scenes, from the Grand Canyon diorama, plus new and expanded scenes. Gotta love those imagineers who see a good thing and repeat it, here, there, and there, and there, and there...

My son's favorite station on pandora? My 80's Pop/Rock. I love that he's fallen in love with good music.

With all the snow on the ground outside, it's hard to believe I was out grilling burgers just 3 nights ago. Brrrr... another cold day here.

Mmmmmm.... Carl's Jr. I miss their menu. Hardee's is nowhere as good. I wish when CJ took over Hardee's they had revamped the menu completely - instead of willy nilly. I miss those Western Bacon Cheesburgers. MMMMM.

DW wants to see Beauty & the Beast 3D. I do too. The original was the movie we went to on our first date. Always been a favorite for some reason... kind figure why.

Ohh, now the boys have switched over to my 60s/70's channel on pandora, and are rocking out to the Jackson 5.

Yeah, I was thinking of multi quoting EVERY response in this thread with the first quote being the one above.

I actually copied it, and pasted it to my notepad for easy reference.

No one's gonna blame me for this one...

DD17 is an expert on classic rock, even better than I am. One of her favorite groups is Simon & Garfunkel. Her band instructor a few years ago asked the band to tell them their favorites and most were listing contemporary groups, when she replied he thought she was not being truthful so he asked songs, whereupon she started listing songs by albums.

I am impressed guys, only two pages added since last night.
