    I guess I was too busy the other day to think of the Savor Growl reference. In that case, it’s worth a good chuckle. Rescind my previous comment.

    Even the photo is similar to the one that was all over facebook, reddit and here:

    For crying out loud people, get your kids vaccinated. This shouldn’t be happening in 2014.

    Don is trying to tell the truth and trying be faithful in his marriage but he’s not seeing the benefits of his efforts. His company hasn’t called him back and I don’t think he’s told his wife he stopped working, and he’s sending in pitch ideas via an intermediary.

    Roger, Don and Peggy are all putting up false faces to some extent to people in their lives. Just like Nixon’s inaugural speech on the TV.

    I had really good luck with a company called “Kemp Allen Dale” or “Allen Dale Kemp” Roofing. They were very reasonable and only charged me for materials when they had to repair anything during a roof replacement on my garage. I only got charged like $15 for a piece of plywood for a repair.

    The only thing was when I called them back for a smaller repair on my porch it took several weeks (like almost 6 weeks) for them to fit me into the schedule because they give priority to full replacement jobs and will fit the small jobs in where they can. So, I’d say it would at least be worth calling them to see if they have any space in the near future on their schedule for your job.

    They give you an estimate pretty fast but if they say they’ll call you back, you may have to wait. I didn’t hear from them for like 5 weeks and then they suddenly called and said “we can be out day after tomorrow”, but the price was right.

    That has to be a posed picture. That’s pure genius! Haha!

    Not all that surprising…but Cleveland made the cut? LOL good one guys.

    Cleveland works better with the republicans’ narrative; it is a nearly bankrupt democratic city. Columbus OTOH has a budget surplus, low unemployment (under 6% for the county), good growth prospects, is pro gay rights, and it’s run by a black democrat. That’s definitely not a contrast that works for them in 2016.

    I wish Hoggy’s would come back. Whoever bought Pig Iron turned it into a lame pub-grub place. Aside from City BBQ, there is not much left on the northside for serious BBQ.

    Request an absentee ballot by mail.

    http://www.sos.state.oh.us/SOS/elections/Voters/absentee/regAbsenteeVoters.aspx

    1. I do, if I intend to be absent. Absentee ballots should be for people who are out of the area or sick or something. Otherwise it’s yet another waste of money to mail out all that paper.

    2. I don’t trust mail-in ballots. Never have, never will.

    This is just another example of incompetent government management. They create a mostly useless early voting program with a schedule that’s only marginally better than waiting until Election Day. If I could just take off in the middle of a weekday to vote then I wouldn’t need early voting in the first place.

    I wrote the CAC once about a zoning issue regarding a major proposal. They replied with a curt letter and told me that the city was responsible for zoning.

    So, I wrote the city, and the city responded and “encouraged me to work through my neighborhood association”, and gave the the contact info for the CAC.

    That was the last time I bothered to try to express my opinion.

    The Wendy’s breakfast was REALLY good. I was genuinely bummed when they stopped. I had a location near my commute to work (Bethel Rd).

    I used to eat Wendy’s breakfast when they still had the Wendy’s at the airport. I don’t think it was the same breakfast that they brought back just recently, but it was pretty decent. The security lines ruined that good thing, no one wants to dawdle outside of the security line, they want to get through that first and then figure out what to eat.

    Why does the gov’t always have to “dive right in” when looking at ideas like this?? …

    Serious? They have been “diving right in” to transit for the last 30 years around here. If you want them to take their time, then you’ve already got that wish.

    I saw it over the weekend and something in it puzzled me. In the wide shots, the hotel is shown atop a mountain, with access by a funicular. But, I swore in one of the first scenes it shows a car driving away from the front door of the hotel. I don’t know if I missed something but that threw me off for a while. Fortunately, the rest of the film was good enough that I eventually didn’t care. I put it down to the fact that there was obviously another way down via road.

    Exactly how expensive is this? I mean if you’re a small business with a less than 1000 followers vs. a giant corporation with half a million, what does it cost?

    I’m also in full support of facebook charging super-exorbitant rates to all political action committees for sponsored posts. If they’re still sending me sponsored posts from conservative hack Pacs to clutter up my phone feed, when my “Like” history includes Jello Biafra and Noam Chomsky, then they better be paying 10 times the normal rate, at least.
