My take - VV went off the rails about the same time the site went off the rails.

For example, he crashed his momís car, with her in it, into a car full of downtrodden guests in our country who are just trying to escape the persecution and poverty in their own country.

My Saturday AM group had 11 this week and we saw a couple more groups of at least that many while we were out.

So you can sit for four+ hours at a snoozeball game, but not one hour in a bicycle saddle.

Live, in person games are rarely snoozeballs. An in-person Yankees v. Boston game will give you a yearís worth of memories. :lol:

Hopefully not a VW- you canít replace them without recoding the ECM. Found out the hard way.

No game at Fenway is ever a snooze fest.

Really makes you think.

It's nice just sitting here but I need to get out and do some easy spinning for a couple hours before it gets to 100 degrees. I'd like to not climb anything today. Maybe just a little climbing.:)

just checked the weather, only supposed to get into the low 90s.

We raced with the 50+123 again yesterday, and it's hard to keep track of who's who. It's always fast though. Either way, I threw caution to the wind and barged my way towards the front on the last lap. After attacking and going with attacks quite often, I rested the next to last lap, thank heavens. The last lap I was in decent shape, then then as usual, I started to get swarmed... No more of those shenanigans, and stepped on the gas and got top ten or so in the pack at the last corner. Like I say, it's hard to read numbers when you're on the limit, but I figured I did sort of well. Come to find out I took third, and it felt good to stand on one of the podium steps after a bit of a drought.

Really? I replaced mine last year... but it is getting to be vintage - 2012.

The house next to us will be going on the market next week and already has a “Coming Soon” sign up.

Mrs datlas said she has seen several cars driving by very slowly.

Subaru Forester. Second time in 5 years. Now the car is out of warranty.

Itís certainly possible. But itís NOT for sale.

Your bike-riding feats pale in comparison to the greatest athlete of our time.

Everything is for sale. Just a matter of price.

Yep, a house behind us just sold in 24 hours and the price was 20% more than we paid 3 years ago for more square footage.

My brain is for sale on a daily basis. Donít have a heart to sell.
