I'll do it, since I have a confession to make. I went over to the dark side. Worse, I posted using a pseudonym. [sigh] Can anyone identify the post I made over there?

Time to Get moving!
Hello all! I want to get my bike fixed. Need new tires and a general tune up since I haven't used it in a few years. Does anyone do that in Melrose? I know of a place in Cambridge but getting over there is a pain.

All right OG, et all, here’s a string that may go nowhere, but that’s ok, hopefully it will at least answer my question(s)! It’s called “oddities” because I didn’t know what else to call it. It’s just some small things I reme...

Olympic Observations
(1) I like that event where they send 6 Snow Boarders down the hill at the same time. I mean, did anyone see that guy that tried to stay up in the air and beat the guys on the ground, at the last jump? Now that was cool even though it looked like it hurt a bit in t...

In the category of 'don't laugh until you try it', Kraft Mac & Cheese is a lot better (tho still not as good as Stouffer's) if you throw in some Velveeta when you're combining all the ingredients. Really!

Little help?
Hey Geezer, Ratt, Have either of you gone through a battle against Shingles? I know I have a fairly mild case (blister wise) and it's almost gone but it seems like this is never going to end.

Weekend Storms

Just Me?
