    DW is an Italian that makes sauce from scratch days in advance all fresh & garden grown ingredients, home made meatballs etc. and we really enjoy Mama Melrose plus as Norm said, as a Fantasmic! Package getting a great seat with no wait doesn't hurt either. 50's has. "shtick" where your waitress is like a 1950's mom including yelling at you for not eating vegetables or purtting elbows on the table. Food is traditional fried chicken, meatloaf, pot roast type of dinners and is pretty good.
    Sorry Norm but glad no injuries, at least you seem like no injuries. Take care.
    I agree that school and the grades are most important. Received some input that we and several other of our friends found to be really good. When your kids are in HS, if they are involved in activities and pulling A's and B's and things like gas and car insurance can be covered, have the kid stay focused on keeping the good grades and using time researching and applying for scholarships instead of working part time. We were able to do this route and both kids have earned so much more in scholarships than they would ever have made working PT (though both have worked some PT) and saved us a good amount in college expenses. i know everyone's circumstances are different but just passing along something to consider.

    Morning boys, from a drama free London. All the Northerners are losing their minds buying up bread as there's about 4 inches of snow coming. Down here its a balmy 7 degrees. To put it in geographical perspective, "The North" is about the same distance away as some of you guys would drive for a really good taco.

    Mad day at work yesterday with board presentations etc, so today kicking back a little and filling up the Disney spreadsheet. Looks like we're coming out in late July.

    Oh, and West Ham's best player is "doing a TO" and saying he doesn't want to play for us anymore. So he can do one. Good job the transfer window is open.

    Norm, hope you are feeling OK this morning, and there's no damage to you.

    Off to Birmingham tomorrow for 1 meeting, so might be calling all out early tomorrow chaps. Assuming that you all leave when I give the green light (which you absolutely should) it might be that your morning cup of coffee may be left half drunk. See you in the bar.

    Have a magical day, bacon and pixie dust all round.

    London out.

    That sucks. Glad you're ok and I hope they can get you back on the road quickly.

    All that setup just to go there. We're proud of you.

    I love 50's PT. So much fun. Good fried chicken, too.

    Is he doing sit-ups in his driveway?

    Morning from balmy Fredericton, about 7 degrees and raining here.

    I didn't know West Ham had a best player. ;)

    :rotfl2::rotfl2: Ah the memories.

    Hey Andy,

    Your guy Appleby did a nice job against Iowa if you look past the first couple of series. He was also a real team player and a class act throughout the season. I wish him well in the future efforts.

    Hope things are well with you and the family.

    Let me know if you think it was worth watching.

    Glad you are OK. Really sucks about the car, may it get sorted out quickly.

    Well played sir. Giving you a standing O.

    I compare Momma Melrose to an Olive Garden quality restaurant. You are going to get good, consistent food. I love '50's. I like the shtick and the food. Usually end up ordering the fried chicken or sometimes the meatloaf. That and an adult beverage makes for a great lunch in the parks.

    Not going to talk about the weather here.

    What a difference between now and then. They grow like weeds.

    Stay safe, we need you to make "The Bar is Open Gentlemen" call.

    I don't know how people drive in the snow over there, but if it is like the idiots around here... well good luck.

    I watched a lot of LSU and Florida this year. Appleby really was a class act and I was glad to see him get another shot with a strong program. Maybe not NFL talent, but he's not a bad QB... and it's like I told you a year ago, he didn't have a coach that could work with him to help him learn and grow. He had some of that this year and some talent around him. I think it says a lot about our coaching staff when they bench guys in 2014 and 2015 that then go on to be starters for 2 SEC teams in the top 20 in 2016. Thank goodness Hazell is gone.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what Jeff Brohm can do with our offense. We've got a running back that has All-American talent if he had a line that could open a hole. We've got a 1 1/2 year starting QB coming back with a couple of really good underclassmen that could challenge him for the job. He's already brought a few OL and WR recruits in. They've got a lot of work to do to rebuild that dumpster fire, but I feel like he's on the right track on getting the offense rolling.

    Now to see if he can build a defense... Might be a lot of 50+ point shootouts if his tenure at WKU is any indication.

    DOUBLE UPDATE: Snow stopped. Pathetic amount.
    I was talking about this earlier when we had a full fire evac from our building, freezing our nuts off, mentioning your comment that you might even have to close the windows. Saving the clemson game for one of those nights when I just wake up, as I don't think DW would appreciate 4 hrs of college football, she just about puts up with march madness.
    Sounds like we have a frontrunner for lunch at DHS, thanks fellas.
    Cheers Andy, but I get the train to Birmingham. I can get some proper work done without someone standing at my desk or calling me over into the shop "just to have a look" at something that takes up an hour.

    Tonight watching The Great Escape. The Steve McQueen motorcycle chase is on, one of the best chases ever.

    Thanks. Felt physically fine, but everything caught up to me later. I had been standing in & out of the rain for 2 hours and finally realized my socks were wet about 4 hours after the wreck.

    Rope drop counts where you did it. We have done each park, but their shows are different.

    As for your daughter working, I gave up playing tennis in HS to work to save $ for car & college. I never had a chance to make the pro tour, but I was good enough to have played at the college level and been a club pro. I wish I had tried that route.

    As for your attempt at Elsa humor, let it go. :lmao:

    Thanks.

    And just as bad as Wednesday was, today brings some great news. I got that other job I applied for back in December - 20 hours a week, benefits, and the pay I wanted. And, I get to keep my two week vacation already booked in June. Life is good today.

    Thanks. No injuries, other than the bit of adrenaline surge & recovery afterwards.

    I didn't know your wife cooked Italian like that. I might park the camper in your front yard on the way to CJs for a good meal like that. :lmao:

    Thanks. Doing well. Sorry to hear about the West Ham TO. Still, when TO pulled out that sharpie from his sock and signed the football, it was hilarious.

    Thanks. Going to get a rental today. The Tumbler (Aztek) still runs, like a tank, and driving in 150 miles a day won't be great. The irony is that if I had been driving it, it would be likely the other guy would have just bounced off and I would keep driving. :lmao:

    You know, when you taunt, you'll get it back a lot worse.

    Thanks for checking. It was a full day yesterday.

    I liked the schtick at Whispering Canyon Cafe, so 50s PT would be fun. We just have great local fried chicken - not KFC- but my wife makes an awesome meatloaf and fried chicken. So, it's difficult to go there. We usually do Sci-Fi because it's so cool inside. Food was better at Mama Melrose. Best place at DHS is still the Brown Derby.

    I still haven't received those dues of 830 dole whips. :rotfl:

    I'll get them mailed to the rest of you as soon as they arrive.

    And here it is. Last meeting cancelled. That's it. Work over. Everyone out. See you all in the bar in 10 mins. Mine's a bourbon sour with triple sec.

    Have a great day chaps, and French connection is right up there with the great escape IMHO.
