    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Yes. This one deserves the big screen and sound system. Since has been over a year from the last movie, the new reclining seats they put in during that time are great!

    Southerners in the new snow belt. Warning.

    I don't have much to worry about. It's Florida. If it snows, to pass the time, it would have to be a quickie.

    I bet your state cannot make this claim

    Depends upon my state of mind in terms of the claims I make.

    Parodies....

    That may be the problem. Looking forward to seeing you here more often.

    Free public transport for all

    I guess that is one way to get ridership up. What goes on during the bus ride? Is the bus logo "It's not the destination, it's the trip!"?

    Mmm - now THIS is sliced bread

    That is the one I typically buy or their Honey Wheat. While other's have followed, Natures Own was one of the first mass produced breads to have no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial preservatives, etc. Saw their "Perfectly Crafted" line at the store last week, but apparently just introduced and premium price. To experiment, I will wait for a sale. Actually, Arnold is buy one get one free this week which is my second choice that I get on sale and is better with more substance than the standard Natures Own.

    How has the value of your house changed?

    Houses in my neighborhood...and thus an indicator for my home value...have retraced to where they were about the time of the bubble burst. While built in 1973, I purchased in 1993 and has appreciated in value about 3x in value. I looked at the property appraisers web site that had sales history. In 1973, it sold for $35,000 where the house across the street is lakefront originally sold for $45,000. Today, that house is probably double mine.

    For the drinkers amongst us

    Why settle for just one. Variety is the spice of life!

    Making presentation even wordier

    And they had a flipchart to go with it, or used the flipchart independently. When I was active in Toastmasters, one of the required speeches was giving a 5-7 minute presentation. Another was a 5-7 minute speech using props. Many would use PowerPoint for those. Almost common feedback was not using PowerPoint as a tool to supplement but as a primary to the extreme of insulting the audience by reading the points to them. For me, I went retro - flipchart, and they learned something as with the points pre-written, I did the reverse flip starting from back, flipping forward so you can't see the bleedthrough of what was coming...just the prior discussion. For the props speech, I used an object such as a bicycle an develop a speech around proper fit.

    Pancakes, how do you make yours?

    No mixes EVER! Self rising flour, egg milk, salt, sugar. Better yet, here freshly ground flour and an entire restaurant dedicated to pancakes and make your own.

    Please tell me he didn't insult their intelligence and read it to them.

    Great Opening lines.......

    De Bello Gallico, Julius Caesar (Book One, Chapter One) Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, quarum unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur. Ok, that might not be an everyday opening line you would normally think of, but if I want to show off, it is about the only thing I remember from my 10th Grade Latin class. It is also a major military source as WWII Generals studies and applied Julius Caesars Gallic campaigns in their strategy. Translation" The Gallic Wars All Gaul is divided into three parts, one of which the Belgae inhabit, the Aquitani, who in their own language a called Celts, in another, our Gauls in the third.

    Great Opening lines.......

    The Prologue setting the opening for Romeo and Juliet. Two households, both alike in dignity In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life
