The Jeremy Spencer/Peter Green/Danny Kirwan (i.e. English) iterations of the band were great. The Bob Welch/first California line-up was "meh". Can't stand the Buckingham/Nicks version.
Saw Carla Cugino (and her bare backside) in a Goodman Theatre production of O'Neill's Desire Under the Elms. It's good to have Amanda back.

That's a classic case of "Manny being Manny". Even as a Cubs/Red Sox fan, I enjoy Ozzie. GM Kenny Williams are totally committed to winning, even when they're at each others' throats. Guillen's battles with former Sun-Time (now AOL Fanhouse) sportwriter Jay...

Reminds me of the scene in Edward Burns' film She's the One, where the working class father (played by the great John Mahoney) asks his investment banker son (played by Mike McGlone from those GEICO commercials) whether he'll ever have enough to be happy - the son replies, "It's not that I'm unhappy, it's that I'm...I'm...dissatisfied."

Dinner at Graham Elliot (owned by Graham Elliot Bowles, who is co-host with English kitchen terror Gordon Ramsay on the Fox Network's "Master Chef"). Wonderful - heirloom tomatoes with aerated mozzarella, duck satay with lime curry and coconut froth, root beer-glazed spare rib with fried okra, halibut with locally-foraged chanterelle mushrooms and pumpernickel dust. Great recommendation from Kyle Wilkinson.

I lived in "Memfuss" for almost two years, in Harbor Town and High Point Terrance. I wonder how James Davis...
