    LOL

    But yeah, bit early for snow I think, but Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico (high elevations) had snow a few days ago, that's what moving in on Pastor J now.

    Hurricanes are Florida snow days, Interstate Police chases are California snow days...
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

        Our first year in North Dakota in 1984 it snowed on Sept. 24th and it stayed. That was in the days when we were living 13 miles south of the Sask/ND border. We did get spared the worst of the storm - east of Bismarck everything is shut down and some areas have up to 24 inches of snow.

            Maybe the Nationals will win it all. I hope not. It could prove that money does win championships. They are 7th on the highest-paid teams in the MLB. The Chicago Cubs were the highest-paid team in the MLB but no more. The Nats winning though will make me sour. After all, they are in the NL East and they were a wildcard team. My team the Braves were first. The Braves are cursed like the Chicago Cubs once were. They went almost a hundred years before winning it all in the early 2000s.

            If you care here's the list though it changes all the time.

              when it comes to team sports the team that buys the best core players will be at or near the top.

                the Chicago Cubs were cursed with one of the cheapest owners in all of professional team sports.the same is true for the Bears.
                between 1950 and 2000 the cubs attendance averaged over one million per season.add in the sales at the ballpark that the club did not have to share with the visiting team.
                with quality players they would have not sold that many more tickets.
                it would have taken money out of the owners pockets if they had purchased quality players instead of the ones on their last leg.

                as for the Bears they have the most players in the hall of fame and one super bowl win...they did win some nfl titles in the premerger days.

                  So I was online searching for nutrients in certain foods, happened to run across one site about foods regarding your liver, sounded interesting, so I clicked on it, watched part of a video, soon realized they were just about to try and sell me a supplement, and offer nothing about healthy foods, of course there is no mention of what they are selling on the main page either, they just sound all medical and want you to watch this lengthy infomercial video so they can convince you that you need their product..

                  ...Well if that wasn't irritating enough, that isn't my point.....

                  So I decide to click over to Swifty's and log in to see if anyone is there, after I close a couple "give me money pop ups" from Tapatalk, I'm about to scroll down ignoring all the ads along the way, BUT wait, what was that, something grabbed my attention with the very first ad and, had to scroll back up, since I thought I saw the word liver there.... Another supplement for liver health, What!

                  Hmmm, Coincidence, or does TT have access to my cookies! Maybe it's just my paranoia, but I wouldn't put it past them.

                  Of course all this just brought to mind this old song by the Police, Every breath you take

                    Now the Georgia Bulldogs lost today and my Braves lost last week. I'm quitting. I get too angry and I can't take it anymore. I live in South Carolina and for rest of the year, I will hear how those Gamecocks beat a top-three team. Today we played so awful that we couldn't beat our selves out of a paper bag.

                        So, recently a midget psychic broke out of prison locally.

                        The headlines read SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE.

                            I have some ideas for when I go to this place sometime.


                            The small town is well known for an elevated DC-3 aircraft on the main road.
