    Speaking of Apple Slice, what happened to slice in general? It was a very popular brand when I was a kid. Orange slice was very tasty as well, but there have been lots of orange sodas on the market. Apple slice was very good. What other flavors were there? Lemon-lime, sure. Grape? Idk.

    Cola, diet Cola, and Cherry Cola were a few others I remember. If memory serves me right, Slice was purchased by Pepsi, who then discontinued all flavors but lemon-lime and orange. Within the last decade, Pepsi replaced Slice lemon lime with Sierra Mist, and Orange Slice with Orange Tropicana Twister.

    Next time you're in an Asian grocery store, look for the Taiwan Apple Soda. Our local place in Ohio has it, so I assume it's easy to come by in less Heartland of America-type places.

    It looks like this:

    By 'less Heartland', I assume you mean 'less backasswards' American-type places than Dayton?

    Odd, but we don't arrest gay people for kissing in Dayton. Do they do that where you live?

    RainX worked really well on my windshield today. Five-hour drive...five different rain storms.

    I'm sitting at my father's desk in my childhood home, typing on his keyboard, on his computer.....it's not easy to do. We found one of his fingernails in the drawer...he was cremated, so this is pretty much all that's left of his mortal remains.............fuck! I hate that he's gone.

    I made breakfast.

    Eggs + Bacon + Spinach + Garlic Salt + Parmesan Cheese + Mozzarella = delicious breakfast sandwich.

    That stuff takes me back. Fond memories as a youth going to do baptisms for the dead and then stopping in for dumplings at Dong Men's right near the Taipei temple. Gorging on endless amounts of steamed, fried, and boiled dumplings, and then washing it all down with Apple Sidra.

    People, if you are ever in Taipei and near the temple, you have to hit up Dong Men's. The best dumplings on the entire island. Ask any of the temple workers, they can tell you where it is and how to get there.

    My mom pays $220 a month to store junk. It's only worth about $10k. It's been in there for 5 years. I'm going to try to and help her make sense of how expensive the junk is today.

    Sifting through the contents of my grandpa's storage bin....I think the man had over 30 nail clippers. I picked his hair brush and smelled it, and it still smells like him. I almost burst into tears...it was like I had my face in his neck hugging him goodbye again on that last day I ever saw him; that day I knew it would be the last time I ever saw him again. My mom had a good cry. I had my two-oldest with me and they served to hug the tears out of my mom....but my tears aren't coming. I don't mind crying, but I still haven't cried about my grandma, and I didn't cry today about grandpa, and I'm not sure that's healthy.

    I rolled my ankle today stepping off a curb, but I think I'm going to just tough it out.

    It took me a while -- two years -- before I really cried about my mom. There was the panic-based crying the day it happened, but I didn't cry it out for a couple of years.

    Freshman year at BYU danimal and I dyed our hair raspberry red with Punky Color. Really, it just ended up being bright pink. Word spread fast and even though danimal's hair was covered by his hoodie, they would not let him into the Canon Center to eat dinner. "I already know your hair is pink," the lady said. I had no problems with my pink hair at the Morris Center or at the Testing Center. Apparently, pink is an acceptable color for females under the Honor Code.

    Anyway, I bring this up because I am thinking about getting some Punky Color and dying my hair blue for the BYU-OU game. But then I think, I am too old to act like that. Or worse, that I am so old that I would just look like an old lady with blue hair, instead of a really dedicated Cougar fan.

    A friend of mine, John Walsh, had a very similar injury. It cost him his career. I hope yours is not as serious.

    blur-haired cougar has multiple meanings.

    My wife is a very good saver. She's saving every last penny we've got right now. We've got several things we are saving money for right now, and she's totally committed to making it happen. I appreciate that because that means I don't have to really worry about our finances. But there's nothing left in our checking account at the end of the month.

    As part of her saving program, she's begun assigning all of our money to different funds as soon as it arrives in our checking account. She often gets so excited/ambitious that she saves too much, IMO. I was paid on Friday. Saturday afternoon she told me that we only had $50 to last us the next two weeks. I hate that. I had to then tell her that I just spent $40 of that at Wal-mart. What's the point of saving if you have to start using a credit card to pay for stuff (thus negating the fabulous saving effort)?

    I hope you're not saving to replace the entertainment center you've got. That thing is awesome.

    Just curious: does your wife work outside the home?

    She does. In fact, she has TWO jobs, but one of them is sort of irregular in terms of how often she works and when she's paid.

    No, that's not the reason for the saving. But a fix for that beauty is in the works and should be ready for your approval in a week or two. The current one is starting to bow under the weight of my feather weight (seriously) tv.
