    @ Da_Beerfreak:

    hey I am just saying… now of course this is not a real grassroots movement, there are of course other players willing to finance and supply arms and assistance over an OPEN BORDER. Not like it could happen here with our airtight borders and corruption free government… it’s a third world cowboy movie don’t you know.

    I’m tired anyways from guessing how much cereal is really 200 calories.

    And Yenta, I don’t think I ever thought about ketchup consuming my calorie count everyday. Heh. :smile:

    The British parliament’s national embarrasment George Galloway (MP-Gaza) belatedly discovered in front of a live audience at Oxford that his debate opponent is an Israeli citizen, so he stormed out in a bigoted huff.

    @ Bunk X:

    I’me getting kinda old, but there have always been girl bands since well before I was born, that’s for sure.

    Flaco Jimenez notwithstanding, every time I see an accordian, I expect to hear “Lady of Spain.” Too much watching of Ed Sullivan and Lawrence Welk in my youth, I expect…


  54. 56 | February 23, 2013 4:05 am

    @ Mike C.:
    Every time I hear “Lady of Spain” I think of the guy who played for the Yankees, the Knicks and the NY Rangers -- Eddie Layton.


  55. 57 | February 23, 2013 4:28 am

    Not a girl band, but Winchester, Virginia’s claim to musical fame. The roadhouse where she started singing is only a minute further up Rt. 340 from the shooting range we frequent.

    I remember all that old TV stuff…Ted Mack’s Original Amateur Hour, Ed Sullivan, Mitch Miller, the Jackie Gleason Show, Red Skelton…the earliest comedies were already in re-run…the Honeymooners, I Love Lucy…Dragnet with Jack Webb was very popular as was Gunsmoke…I caught the later part of the golden years of television, the explosive rise of NFL football….at about 2am the local station would play the national anthem, a couple of jets flying by and zap, no more signal…the end til 7 o’clock am and Captain Kangaroo


  60. 62 | February 23, 2013 6:03 am

    yep, and they used to just scrape away the pitchers mound and a third of the field was dirt or mud…and I clearly remember the first ‘second’ Thanksgiving Day…Dallas vs Cleveland and the unstoppable Jim Brown against Bob Lilly and I have been a Cowboy fan from Michigan ever since…47 years now
