Congratulations! It's a major award!

Did all your opponents look like him? 😁
:rotfl2: :rotfl2:

Not sure if any of y'all are interested in seeing the spacex launch from last week.

Very cool.

And... I really don't see what's stopping me. I could fairly easily check the launch schedule and get down there in time for one...
Or you could just completely luck into one...:rolleyes1

I just can't see myself getting another paid service. I already have Prime, Netflix and Disney+... in addition to basic cable.
That's what I have, too. Thinking about ditching Netflix until Stranger Things comes back.

Have a great Monday!
Isn't that a contradiction in terms?

Starting my new job today.

Good luck. We're all counting on you.

We also did the 3 year bundle of Disney+, which has been really worth it so far just for the Imagineering documentary and The Mandalorian.
I've really enjoyed both of those as well. Plus, we showed the little guy Home Alone last night, since he needs to learn that people suffering catastrophic injuries is funny.

If he doesn't tell you it's time to get a new GM and coaching staff plus find a QB that can win when it matters he's got his head stuck in the sand. It's is getting really hard to keep cheering for them.
I doubt the GM will ever fire himself.

It's even worse for him, he grew up in Boston and has to cheer on a NY team tonight :rotfl2:

I do agree though, the Jerry Show is getting a bit tiresome.
I'm convinced the Eagles' season has been a brilliant ploy to try and get Jerry to keep Jason Garrett around.

It's a rainy PA day so the coffee is helping tremendously
Where are you in PA? I'm in Delaware. Same rain, unfortunately.

Actually... Buche de Noel literally translates as Christmas Log, but... we much prefer to refer to it as "The Christmas B*tch".
Wel'p...
Now I'll never be able to see one of those without calling it by you naming standard.

Thanks for that :laughing:


4. Raglan Road. I liked the show, but was underwhelmed with the food.
Interesting.
We didn't see the show but loved the food.

Different time; different taste; different experience.


Come on mate, fess up, that's what makes it fun.
Aw-ite...

Dis-Dining Disappointments (that will likely cause a few DisDads to give a bit of grief over):

‘Ohana - all the meat skewers were overcooked and dried out. Worse ,everything tasted heavy-handed of 5-spice (and I mean everything). If everything tastes the same (and not an overly appealing type of sameness), what's the point. (and... I hate pealing shrimp).

Boathouse - Slow service, underwhelming cuisine. Maybe I'm spoiled by the availability of excellent seafood where I live, but this wasn't worth its money (and certainly not worth a signature credit) The bar, however, was a pleasant surprise.

Mama Melrose’s - Slow service, bland food, all around bad experience. Just... no.

Boma - Inconsistent... We did it once and loved it. Went back and took guests to show the place off, and it barely even mediocre (what the heck?)

Via Napoli - Nothing wrong with it per-say, but I can get good pizza at home (and even the Blaze Pizza on property offers as good or better)

Teppan Edo - This was actually quite good, but... Similar to some of the ones above, I have access to good versions of the same thing both near home and along the SC coast (which I frequent), so it's just not worth spending my limited Dis time & bucks there if I can get the same experience elsewhere.

There are others where the food is Meh, but mostly we all know this about those spots but do them anyway as experiences (say like Chef Micky or BOG). But that's a conscious choice...

Excellent!
Nice work there and may you continue the progress.

Thanks.
I'll download that when I get home and give it a watchin'

Some day, I'd sure like to see one for myself.

And... I really don't see what's stopping me. I could fairly easily check the launch schedule and get down there in time for one...
That's a good thought.
There's a possibility that we might be down in the area in late April so I checked the schedules but to no avail. The Expedition 63 Launch is scheduled for some time in April, but it will be out of Baikonur, so being in central Fla won't offer much of an advantage on that one.

Great!
May this one be the job you wanted to find in Florida.

It's a miserable, rainy Monday. I'm ready for the week to be over. I applied for a promotion, and have to drive up tomorrow for an interview. It's an automatic rejection, so maybe I'll work "stamp my form" and "rehabilitated" into the interview questions.

I just can't see myself getting another paid service. I already have Prime, Netflix and Disney+... in addition to basic cable.
Which I won't cancel yet because I want to see Survivor and watch some sports and a couple other network shows...

Congrats! Impressive.
I cancelled Netflix and did the Disney +, ESPN +, and Hulu bundle. It was the same price.

I have Hulu, Disney + and DC Universe. Oldest DD has Netflix, youngest DD has Prime. We all share... :happytv:
Is the CBO a criminal? We are respectable like all the big corporations now.

Starting my new job today.
:jumping1:
Congratulations. Remember, keep looking to find me a good job.

The pickles on the trophy are a nice touch.
Well done mate. I agree the 49ers Saints was a great game to watch. Always nice to see Robbie stick one between the posts, it's not like the Bears have an issue at that position...... :rolleyes1
Not sure why the play pass the kicker. Sure, I get salary cap issues. But, a good, consistent kicker can get you a lot of easy points and a bad kicker can lose you a Superbowl.

Congrats Norm! Looking good and enjoy those Marty Moose glasses :)
Thanks. I hope it arrives. We've had some porch burglars in the neighborhood this season. Thankfully, not on our street.

I've got some good theater on in the office this afternoon; these impeachment hearings are funny to watch.
I've listened to some if it. I guess it depends on where you are politically, but what I heard just droned on forever and never seemed to get anywhere.

Congratulations! It's a major award!
It didn't have a deed to a Bowling alley inside though.

3.5 hours of pickleball, and I played hard. Only lost two matches for 9 points all day. But, I've been hobbling, limping, grunting, and hurting around the house. You think I would learn by now.
Congrats! Sounds like a hard-earned award there :thumbsup2
