    Quote from max.patch: “There's a few things I always do when I'm in Northeast -- and one of those is getting a lobster roll or three. (I can get them here but they lose something in the translation). But not at $34. In Maine this month, roadside lobster rolls were going for as much as $34 each. ” so it seems more people are cooking at home. They learned how to make a lobster roll. (Hidden Content)

    A new book about the history of the AT was published this week. I have not read it yet. atbiography.com/ There is an excerpt here.

    The Italian artist Salvatore Garau just sold his work "Io Sono" for over $18K. But it seems it doesn't actually exist. According to the artist it finds form in its own nothingness. He goes on to say “The vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy, and even if we empty it and there is nothing left, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, that nothing has a weight. Therefore, it has energy that is condensed and transformed into particles, that is, into us.” The buyer got a certi…

    Quote from Astro: “Fast pitch softball is a very "fast" game. 60 foot bases also come into play. When I was on our local baseball board we once had a girl playing with the 13-14 year old boys. Reason: baseball is not as "fast" as girls softball. ” I read an article bonce about how baseball would change statically by moving the bases just slightly closer or further apart. Things like stolen bases or double plays would become either nearly impossible or routine.

    On the news story I saw, the woman claimed that because it all happened so fast and she was so focused on the dogs, she didn't even realize it was a bear until after she started pushing, and by then the encounter was already essentially over.

    Quote from Astro: “Not a fan of Tony LaRussa by any means, but I have to admit he is right on this one... ” Our local paper devoted a whole page to this issue in today's sports section. The article cited a remarkable statistic. Mercedes was the first person in 20 years to swing at a 3-0 pitch when their team was winning by more than 9 runs. I'm not sure it's particularly relevant in basing an opinion, but it did find it to be a curious statistic.

    I believe this is a written rule: "Any player, coach, manager, sponsor or spectator whose conduct is unbecoming or abusive shall at a minimum be reprimanded with a warning. If warranted, the offending party shall be ejected from the game at the discretion of the Umpires and / or the League / Tournament Director."

    I agree most unwritten rules are dumb. Flip a bat or take tenth of a second too long to watch your homer and you get a fastball in the back. I often thought boring last 30 seconds of a basketball blowout would be more fun for everyone if the guy with the ball tried a half court shot at the buzzer. Go ahead LeBron. 100 bucks says you can't make it.

    Quote from LIhikers: “I wish we had Tim Hortons here on Long Island. Their coffe is good and Kathy loves their hot chocolate. ” Curious thing about TH is they have brewed iced tea in the US, but in Canada they only have bottles of pre made sweetened iced "tea" (sorry all you grits eaters, I don't do sweet tea either). But having been part of British Empire, the Canadians take their hot tea very seriously. So when I'm at a TH in Canada, I order a hot tea (bag in) and a cup of ice. After steeping …

    Quote from max.patch: “It's a really nice walk; I'm sure you'll like it. I've been 3 times -- the last was probably 10 years ago -- and next time I'm in Ohio I'll go again. There's a town 20-30 miles from Hocking Hills, we'd get a Hampton Inn/Holiday Inn Express type room and have dinner at the local Olive Garden or pizza joint and then day hike the entire next day. ” On this trip we stayed at the Fairfield in Athens OH and a HI Express in Wilder KY. But unfortunately my wife is keen on the Inn …

    Driving home from Raleigh today I noticed Waffle Houses as far north as Toledo OH. Do you suppose their range is expanding north due to climate change?
