Own the nickname at least!

Next time you hang with those guys bring a bag of butterscotch hard candies and hand them out. Really sell that grandpa thing! [laughing]

Haha, I was going to say root beer barrels. [smile]

Yes I did play and it will take me a week to recover. They usually play shirts and skins and I always made sure I played shirts because, well, Grandpa body. This time around I was hoping I'd be skins and show them what their future is. Kids need a little trauma in their lives. But they already knew grandpa plays shirts so no such luck. I am certainly owning the name. I thought it was hilarious. Gotta say though, tough call between root beer barrels and butterscotch hard candies.

There needs to be a King Thames version of the bible.

I just read that a woman with the name McBride took second place for the second straight year in the wnba 3 point shooting contest. This amuses me. Always the bridesmaid never the bride!

I've been trying to eat more vegetables lately. So today I deep fried my bacon in vegetable oil.

I’ve been off the grid driving through Canada for the past 5 days. I feel like the igt threadlines of Saladino hitting grand slams on consecutive days are a gullibility test.

If you see a couple of teenagers looking to hitch a ride, keep right on going and call the authorities.

I actually watched that...live. Watched Delino Deshields daughter play in the skills competition. First time I've watched a WNBA event and I'm glad I did.

Has anyone ever purchased a refurbished cell phone? Overall, I've had good luck with refurbished electronics (I'm typing this on a refurbished PC I purchased about nine years ago) and that makes sense because they usually fix the manufacturing defects.

I'm considering switching to xfinity Mobile as they don't charge a line access fee and charge $12/GB of data. I rarely stream video/music, and if I do, it's almost always on WiFi - I don't think I've exceeded 1GB of data in a month in the last year. The cost of xfinity would be ~$12/mo plus phone purchase cost which is $25-30/mo because they don't discount the cost of the phone as they don't have contracts. I can't bring my current phone there (Galaxy S7 - too old) and would need to purchase one from them or bring one, but a refurbished Samsung S9 is about half the cost of what xfinity charges for a S9. Even so, it's still $300, and would hate for it to crap out after a couple of months.



I've bought a few phones from Amazon that were refurbished. I've one bad experience, and that was because I needed one immediately the next day and I couldn't get the one I wanted. Other than that, they've all been pretty much the same as any new phones I've bought.

The one thing that you have to make sure of is the phone must be compatible with the network you are trying to connect to.

AT&T phones use GSM and Verizon/US Cellular phones use CDMA. Even then they may still not be compatible. This is why I tend to buy unlocked phones with stock Android on them. They tend to be compatible with the most carriers.

I been in Montreal the last few days and I must say their cuisine is surprisingly good. I don't know how they do to it but the McDonald's filet-o-fish tastes exactly like those in the US. Burger King's Whopper is almost identical. The Subway I went to. You couldn't tell it was Canadian at all. I can't wait to try the Montreal Taco Bell tomorrow.

My inner foodie wants to visit Montreal now. Le Crunchwrap Supreme, monsieur, s'il vous plait.

Just say that nothing outside Montreal matches their poutine. Similar to finding a brat outside of Wisconsin.

I used to edit travel guides and it always seemed like being in Montreal during the week of their Grand Prix was pretty much the most exciting place to be on earth. A ton of things to do in that city with an exciting French-English mix. The most "Europe" of any city in North America.

It’s really easy to bash kids for taking out student loans to earn fine arts degrees. Then you realize how much free joy a sitcom on TV or a song on the radio bring and it makes you glad some people are willing to take that risk.
