May actually test a couple recipes to make a savory bread pudding for breakfast instead of my usual potato breakfast. And yes, there will be cinnamon rolls and biscuits.
Megs and I are discussing a low country boil on Thursday or Friday.

He went under 1 last year, so I'll place a wager against your 1, atm. My early lean is under 1.5

OOOOOOOOOOOO!

My early lean there is Friday, to avoid too much work before Christmas morning. I mean, night practice.

Who else is going? Tickets are going fast I hear

joeb, over / under for haircuts on the trip east, assuming you are coming and hope you are.
I'll be there Wednesday evening as usual. Actually forgot about this thread, but got shamed into looking for it.

Betting on my haircuts? I don't think there are Vegas odds for that!

I'll stay away from Taco Bell on the way, but will likely be eating some wings from Zaxbys. Could be same effect.

The conversion is the same for the top tier spicy wings as Taco Bell.

And get your car sent to Joest for the performance and reliability tune so it can make it all the way? Or will there be an oil fire last in the event like last year?

If you recall, one car made it till about 9:30 into the race before exploding.

I did give Doonan a call to see if they could at least have speedsource go over my car, but he declined.

Not only did the Mazda make 9.5 hours, it went over 1,000 miles.

And don't get too excited, joeb, but I'm confident in most road Mazdas. They just should all have 3 or 4 rotors with straight pipes and lots of flames.

With a free reciprocating saw to cut away bodywork as it over heated like a Kudzu?

It'll be tear away.

So, we are in this funky weather pattern again (at least in the Athens area- I know it's different 40 miles away) where we are wet for about 1.5 weeks and then dry for 3. Do we expect that to change?

joeb may have to bring one of those broke ass pumps from NOLA with him...

Lol, no I don't think I'll have room for that with all the other contraband. We are also in that weather pattern except without the dry part in the middle. We average 60" of rain a year in BR, last year we had 100 and so far this year I'm over 50.

Sorry, that's me doing a rain dance here every morning so we'll be ahead and it can stop in October. Cause you know were still deep in a drought. Decatur reminded us to only water on the designated days and time or you could be fined, as if anything in the garden has needed more water

Take this map to them and shove it you know where:

http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Home/S...onitor.aspx?GA

Over since June.

And we wouldn't have too much of a problem if people didn't water their grass when it's raining like I saw yesterday or think Bermuda needs water every other day.....

And speak of the devil, raining again.

Oh crap, the world will be ending this year. I'm trying to get an ESM flag from them, no reply yet to 3 emails over the last month but I may get a second taller as well. And maybe a VT flag to add to the mix.

An esm flag or a patron flag? If I recall the last couple of years, flag poles didn't even go up until Friday.
