Oddly enough, I was never hugely into Dire Straits, which I feel is kind of weird given how much I love Knopfler's solo stuff. I mean, there are certainly DS songs I know and love, and, as a guitarist, there was always an acknowledgment that Knoplfer was a guitar god, but I was never a DS fan. A number of years back, however, a friend gave me a bunch of Knopfler's solo stuff, and I've been a huge fan of his ever since.All the Roadrunning with Emmylou Harris is an absolute...
Mark Knopfler is playing the ATL this fall, and it's on a Saturday. I think it's clear Mr. Knopfler is trying to tell me he wants me to attend, and I intend to comply.
Yes. They exist just for things like this - acute, simple, straightforward issues that are easy to treat. In fact, I got antibiotics from one when I had strep last year.
But why are you going to an ENT doc? It's strep throat; find a Walgreens/CVS/Kroger with a clinic, and be done with it. There's no need to go to an expensive specialist when it's something a doc-in-a-box can diagnose in five minutes with a simple swab test.
Now, Piob, it would be ungentlemanly to gloat. Or to point out that a mere three inches of snowfall paralyzed America's biggest city, a city which we have been assured has the resources to handle major snow events.Indeed, it would be unseemly to note that the whole debacle in NYC is because forecasting is as much an art as a science, an imperfect one at that, and small misses in the forecast can make appropriate-at-the-time decisions look silly in retrospect.No, I will...
It's not just mediocrity. We're not talking about a coach who wasn't particularly good and therefore didn't leave the program in great shape, or a guy who moved on after being successful, leaving the program a bit down (sort of like the immediate post-Spurrier years at Florida). Meyer ran a dirty, unethical program that shielded and enabled all sorts of misbehavior, and then he took off when St. Tebow wasn't around to draw attention away from it all, leaving a huge mess...
He smiled like that at Florida, too. Turned out it was because he was really enjoying fucking the program so hard that, half a decade later, it still hasn't recovered.
No reference to compensating for the cold and snow by spinning Buffett's Key West Albums while he sits at home = clearly not me.
Plus, Keebler now makes some pretty tasty knock-offs, which you can get year-round.I'll pick up a few boxes if I see some Girl Scouts actually being entrepreneurial and moving them on on their own, but now it seems like the preferred sales method is to have mom/dad hawk them on Facebook (or at the office). Ef that noise. The entire point of the Girl Scout Cookie program is to teach them to be entrepreneurs who do the work on their own; I'm not going to encourage the next...
