  1. Not sure how many of you still keep up with KFC, but Wes has taken a bad turn and reports state that he is not expected to live much longer. I thought some here may wish to know this sad update.
  2. I don't own a credit card at the moment, other than a Sam's card for gas. It is all debit card, online bill paying and pay pal attached to my bank account. This after most of my life has been spent in huge credit card debt. I have abandoned it for the past 8 years and clawed my way out of student loan debt ($300K), debt from a small family business $100K), and credit card debt >$50K. My mortgage is the last debt at the current time. Only buy used cars and pay cash. We basically use the Dave Ramsey philosophy. Life is way better that way and we no longer live paycheck to paycheck like we did for most of my life. Of course, three of four kids are graduated from college and the last one is in his final year of school, so life has gotten decidedly less expensive for us. I would encourage everyone to get out from under credit cards. The airline miles and other stuff are not worth the risks in my opinion. Spending beyond your means becomes too easy.
  3. As much as I can. I am convinced I spend less when it is paid in cash. It is a mind game, but it hurts more to pay in cash and is a deterrent to over spending for me.
  4. I am not aware of that album. I will have to give it a try. I really love his really old stuff like Madman Across the Water, Burn Down the Mission, and the entire Captain Fantastic Album.. Those are just some really good rock songs.
  5. I am a big fan of Elton John 1970-1977, a modest fan of him for the next 15 and I don't really care for much of his stuff the last 15-20 years. I thought Rocketman was just okay. I really wanted to like it a lot more than I did. Bohemian Rhapsody was far better, in my opinion. A similar fiction music movie, Yesterday, about the glitch that caused the Beatles to never exist and only one guy remembered them was a pretty good film. I really enjoyed it.
  6. At the encouragement of a fellow poster, I am sharing big news about my son from the past week. He is on youtube and has his own channel if you search for Zak McAllister Just a follow up on my son’s week at the 2019 International Juggler’s Association Annual Festival. So, he won the three biggest awards:World Champ for Individual World Champ for TeamsPeople’s Choice Award (voted on by ballot by all festival attendees for their favorite person at the festival)He also got four gold medals for lesser events and won another audience voting performance competition. He’s only the second person ever to win all three big awards in the same week. Essentially, every single thing he was eligible for, he won. He was on fire. It is a niche group of performers around the world, but in that world, he is on top for the moment. It was a very cool dad moment for me to see him compete against people from around the world and come out on top.
  7. You will likely need to forfeit the Good Samaritan Award... So, if I jump start someone's car, I should just say, "It's mine now?"
  8. I just collect the first cards of each player. It’s much easier that way.
  9. @MercenaryLibrarian I have an Omar Manning card. Not a bad guy I assume, but he left the team for some reason. I just recently picked up a Jeremy Kerley card, just because. I have all of the ones you mentioned above as well. I also have a few Casey Pachall cards, although he redeemed himself somewhat. I think there is a Tanner Brock schedule card. Cory Rodgers shot himself in a club, but generally not considered in the same group with the rest of the ones you mentioned. Kenneth Davis had his own bit of controversy, but I am still a fan. One of my all time favorite linebackers, LaMarcus McDonald, has been in and out of prison. Another LB, Daryl Washington, has some substance issues and domestic violence issues that put him in the news for the wrong reasons. Of course, Guy Morris had the audacity to coach at Baylor. I believe Ryan Tucker had some run ins with the law as well. I have all of their cards. We should compare notes on cards some time. I have not been able to get many of the team schedule cards the last couple of years for football or baseball. Do you have the really old ones, like Davey O'brien, Sammy Baugh, Ki Aldrich, Don Floyd, Jack Spikes, or Jim Swink? The Ki Aldrich one is harder to find, but ebay usually has a couple. Ki Aldrich Here are a few cards from a nice set that has some players that are otherwise harder to find. Look for the whole set. It has Tayo, Roger Williams, Maponga, Colin Jones, etc and a bunch of older players. Panini team set Here is another one you don't see very often that you may not have or know about: Bo Schobel Bo was always one of my favorites. I assume you have the Matt Schobel card. Marshall Newhouse has an unofficial card that is the Team Leader card: Newhouse Here is another rare one: Crutcher Vaitai has one that I only just found out about: Vaitai Here is a rare one: Stanley Washington Shawn Worthen has one too. There are several that only have CFL cards. Reggie Hunt. The WR turned RB that saved our season a few years back when everyone was injured, Ryan Christian. His is harder to find. I think Quincy Butler has one from the CFL. Reggie Hunt: Reggie Hunt Cole Hunt has one for the defunct AAF: Hunt If you have any really obscure ones, post them. The baseball ones are even harder to keep up with because so many of the players get on in the minor leagues.
  10. Finally finished this book. Though it is not my preferred genre, it is pretty darn well written. The ending does not give full closure and I happen to know at least a second and likely a third book is coming. The story is good and it mixes the real world with a magical fantasy world in a unique way. I have been told that I can be a beta reader for the sequel, so I will get to read it before anyone else. I think, with the proper marketing, this could be a really popular series. I recommend it to anyone who likes Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings types of books.
  11. I was a huge KZEW fan back in the day. I actually still keep a Zoo sticker on my car and have a fairly nice collection of old KZEW/Q102 stickers along with a similar radio station from Houston called KLOL that disappeared and turned into a Tejano station. I recall exactly where I was when I realized the Zoo went off of the air. I was pretty pissed and in denial for a few weeks. I just new it could never be true, but it was, sadly. KZEW had a fairly short overall run, but I don't think any station anywhere could beat it and their window stickers were the best I have ever seen. Great memories.
  12. For those who used to be over on killerfrogs, Wes gave an update today. It sounds as if he is doing progressively worse. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
  13. Never heard of the guy, but kudos on the stage name choice.
