It is going to be a pain this summer to reshingle my house. There are three layers of shingles to be removed and some of the planks will need to be replaced.

Hand Grenades are a drink you can get on Bourbon Street.

I like bourbon. Nothing like a nice Jack on the rocks after a long day at work.

Rob's sister has shingles, and is just a wreck from the pain.

Oh- I had shingles once, when I was 13.. they do hurt.. and itch. I still have 4 tiny scars on my back that can be sensitive.

Three weeks is nothing...try 2 months. Lots of reasons that I won't go into here. Thankfully, that is in the past.....

Sounds like the seinfeld episode.

I see your 3 weeks and raise you 6 months.

You could always just kill kitties.

I read recently that the PG&E hydro dams along the Connecticut River in New England have been on the market for over a year now.

Budgie thinks my belief in the market is similar to my belief in honest politicians and the Easter Bunny.

A woman I know said she found out Santa wasn't real when she was in 6th grade. Her teacher stopped class early and announced, "Now we're going to write responses to the kindergarten 'Dear Santa' letters." At the time, she started to cry.

Our 10 year old still thinks he's real too... I think she's getting a bit old for it, but hey...

I once dated a girl who believed in santa until 7th or 8th grade. I am happy to say that we are no longer dating.

No, she dumped me for reasons not related to my non-belief in Santa past the 2nd grade. :)

If anyone was going to train people (for anything), it would be you PG.

I like taking the el through the ghetto neighborhoods in Philly. Transit-oriented development at its finest.

Why aren't there ever any nice neighborhoods along the els ??

My planning books say that these are great for the neighborhood.
