  • Quote from odd man out: “Quote from jimmyjam: “All the cars with Maryland plates that I see on I95 here in VA are driving like they just robbed a bank and have the cops on their tail, 15 to 20 mph over the speed limit. ” I learned to drive in MD, but it was the DC area, not "Balmer". For fun we would play "Beltway Bumpercars" ” Reminds me of driving in Brazil. Was like go cart racing. Get in, push the pedal to the floor, and try to avoid hitting anyone (or being hit).

Also looking at bringing a pair of switchbacks (for long pants) in addition to my fleece top, gloves, and wool beanie. Also going with crew length (instead of ankle) Darn Tough wool…

Is that Charleston Heston? Or Paul Bunyan? ” A woman once walked up to Charlton Heston and told him she named her son after him. He responded please don't tell me you named him Charlton, and she said no, we named him Moses.

Funny thing is one my sons is showing me YouTube videos last week of him when he used to appear on Cheers. I had to say you know he even had his own show after that.
