HaHa! Our post office was in Oxon Hill, MD. After years of having our rural letterbox shot at, blown up, or dragged down the road repeatedly, not to mention mail theft, our family got a PO Box. I still remember the number!
What’s a Rave? 😉 ;)
hah! Something which I wish I still had the stamina to do.
;) That’s what I thought. . .
I want Billy Joel. Since I’m not getting him, as amk would say, gunnite folks.
I’ll have to give you Billy Joel when Chips is on holiday.
Just called my boss and asked him never to give me holidays, I will work every day until I’m 68-ish, in 47 years time.
I knew that’d wake you up.
I have a very sophisticated NSA-ish device, if the letters J, O, E and L are typed at TOD, a siren goes off.

Grrr – have nightmares, Mister!
I just said that so you would think of me.
I never have nightmares. Always good dreams.
Go to bed, Uptown Boy.
As I near it, I am hoping this is so!
To be 70 years young is sometimes far more cheerful and hopeful than to be 40 years old. – Oliver Wendell Holmes | #quote— Highrise Habits (@HR_Habits) May 30, 2014
Kim Stanley Robinson, a noted scifi writer, wrote the “Mars Trilogy”, about human settlement and terraforming of Mars. One of the advances in his timeline was the extension of human lifespans. The series covers about 150 years of history. In the last novel, the original settlers were still alive and kicking and healthy and raving with the youngins.
This sounds like something my little-bit-older friend quotes to me, every now and then!
I think you threw in the “raving,” which is fine with me!

Wow. I think it was a big mistake for this guy to give away clues on twitter. Part of the great thing about the way he did it here most of the time was that it was a complete accident to find the money.
I wondered what was up with the clues!
It was very anonymous when it started out. People just finding money in various places. Then it started to get a little press attention. Then the gifter started talking to the press and then started wanted people to post photos of their finds on twitter. Now it’s a whole other thing.
I’m more for its magical beginnings. We need something special to happen, with all the doom and gloom!
Me, too. At first it just seemed like this nice altruistic thing. Now it seems to be about the press.
Another stunt, I guess. Too bad!

Donald Sterling's approval not needed for Clippers sale as wife accepts Steve Ballmer's $2b bid bloomberg.com/news/2014-05-3… $MSFT via @soshnick— Ben Scent (@benscent) May 30, 2014
2 billion for a friggin’ bb club?
No wonder m$ sucked under balmer.
The most recent highest sale of an NBA team was the Sacramento Kings, Indian dude for $535 million http://articles.economictimes.indiatimes.com/2013-05-19/news/39355021_1_national-basketball-association-tibco-software-sacramento-kings …. Ballmer bid on that team too, but wanted to move it to Seattle. Only teams worth $2 Billion L.A. Dodgers(tv deal included w/ MLB), L.A. Lakers (NBA same TV deal), Dallas Cowboys NFL, and N.Y. Yankees MLB T.V. deal.
$2 billion for the Clippers would be insane. Deal with Staples Center is not good, TV deal will be 1/2 value of Lakers.— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) May 29, 2014
Latest story with @darrenrovell on how Shelly Sterling engineered today's record-breaking sale of the Clippers m.espn.go.com/nba/story?stor…— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) May 30, 2014
I will give credit to Shelly. Smart woman.
Indeed…I think she has other motives….. CA is an ironclad 50/50 divorce settlement state…. she is playing Donald so he will sell quick, no legal battles & then will divorce his ass……collecting her major mullah! There are a few hurdles left before the deal can become official….so Oprah,Geffen, and Steve Jobs’s wife could get back in if things fall apart.
“But the deal faces possible obstacles.
Mr. Sterling’s position remains uncertain. He was said to have authorized his wife to negotiate with potential buyers, but she needed his power of attorney to sign off on an agreement. Mr. Sterling’s lawyer, Maxwell Blecher, said Wednesday that Ms. Sterling did not have it. Mr. Blecher also said that, as incentive to agree to sell the team, Mr. Sterling wanted the N.B.A. to drop its charges that he had violated the league’s constitution.
Mr. Sterling, who has vowed to fight the league in its efforts to terminate his ownership of the Clippers, is scheduled to appear at a special hearing Tuesday to answer to charges that he damaged the N.B.A. by making the racist statements. He was barred from the league for life last month.
Commissioner Adam Silver said last week that he would prefer for the Sterlings to sell the team voluntarily. A vote of the league’s other owners could force them to sell.”
Proof that he really does have $ to burn.
Remember this..and make sure everyone remembers this. Never supported veterans. EVER. And he calls for Shinseki to resign and got his little lap dog, Jeff Flake, to say the same. AAAHHHHH!!!
Can someone Tweet this please? Thanks
I usually refuse to link to HuffPo but this article from 2008 really does a great job of shaming McCain in one fell swoop. Thanks.

I just took a peek at his timeline and, wow, what a craggy old creep.
I try not to get too close to him, usually. Eek. Since he lost in 2000 with his Straight Talk aka Bull Shit Express, he has become an even bigger loser – because he’s no longer hiding his true self. It ain’t pretty.
Get off our lawn, McCain!
