  1. welcome back and congrats on all the good news!! I'll talk to you soon!!
  2. i'm kinda shocked that everybody seems to act like this is a "new" concept for phil to act like an ass at the poker table. He's been doing this for years and years. I've never had much respect for his personality, he's NEVER been a gracious loser. He at one time was a respected poker player, but i think that all went out the window when he started demanding respect instead of trying to earn it. As far as his playing goes, i think he was a great player, but has since relied on his "reputation" rather than adapting his game to meet the changes in the players and the game itself. I feel sad
  3. exactly the opposite here. My hubby and I used to try to go out as often as possible, but it became a chore, since we were so young and everyone else was so much older, it wasn't all that fun. I love the game, but having to watch what you say and do made it really boring. I'm not too big on duplicate, i'd rather pay penny/point contract than anything.
  4. i thought i was the only person here who played. Where i live, i'm one of only maybe 5 people under 75 who do.
  5. wow, if you switch 2-7TD for stud i think i'd definately play this one
  6. because i was born in the 70's and was a teen in the 80's the whole late 70's and early 80's seems to mesh for me (meaning something i suggest could be either). Off the top of my head, i would suggest....Anything by Bowiethe entire YES collection (i have it on vinyl, cassette and cd)the tubes (i think this is definately early early 80's but still worth it)Arlo guthrie (you just have to own the pickle song or at least you have to hear it)Anything and everything by Queenpink floyd, led zeppelin and ccr are requirementsThe guess whomarvin gayesupertrampi would also suggest adding some disco so t
  7. gj sir!! If we ever have a CW meetup, i'll let you buy me a beer!!
  8. i just thought he was taking a break. I didn't expect him to be gone this long tho. I hope he's ok too.
  9. so i did the bacon-wrapped meatloaf and OMG!!!i did a little improvising...i wrapped it in foil, then put it on a rack in a roasting pan poking holes in the bottom of the foil for the grease to escape. After 20 minutes in the oven, i unwrapped the foil and let the bacon get crispy crispy. It was super good. I'm definately recommending it. I just made a basic meatloaf too, so whatever you like to use to make it then layer alot of bacon and roll around meatloaf. (mine was a little too big so i used a couple pieces of bacon on top to cover. It's incredibly moist from the bacon that you don'
  10. last night, while watching diners,driveins and dives, they featured this AWESOME looking meatloaf, wrapped in bacon. I really really want to try this at home. They showed the recipe, and not too hard to scale it down the only problem is, they wrapped it in something to bake it initially, i'm assuming this absorbed the grease. Any ideas what i can use to do this???? At first i thought it was simple parchment paper, but that really wouldn't get rid of much. I did go out and buy the leanest ground beef i could find, hoping that helps, but i can see the bacon causing alot of fat issues
  11. Considering the only thing that brought Hosea any attention this season was his fling with Leah makes me think that he should never have been declared the winner. He was definately bottom 3 way more often than top 3 and a couple times it was with some sort of seafood (that is his strength) that put him on the bottom. With that said, i'm also glad Stephan didn't win, i don't care how great of a chef he is, his attitude makes me want to punch him in the face. I felt really bad for Carla, if she had just stuck to her guns, she would've done fine. i think either fabio, jamie or jeff should've
  12. i have a similar problem. In the last couple years, my property taxes have gone up due to sewer maintenance. Apparently they have to replace all of the old sewers in the neighbourhood, which is fine. Well, one day while paying my hydro/water bill, i notice an additonal $45 attached to the bill. I call the company and it turns out its a sewer maintenance fee, because all the sewers in the neighbourhood need replacing. Now, i'm pretty sure that's why my taxes went up and i paid that, so why is it that i'm being charged another monthly fee for this. Not to mention, in the 3 years i've been
  13. i can't even begin to express how much this saddens me. I'm not familiar with who is staking who around here (yet it seems that everybody but me has a backer), but i staked him right around xmas time and let him keep all his winnings thinking that maybe he could get a bankroll going for himself. (sure it was only a min cash in a 4.40, but still). I find it funny that people with bigger bankrolls than me take stakes from people. Not to sound mean, but i don't take stakes unless it's something completely out of my roll to play (which is usually pretty much any tourney) and even then, if i ha
  14. ty gib, your words are inspiring!!inwhoever draws me first round has to at least be nice to me while they are taking my chips.
  15. debating on whether or not to donate to this cause......someone pls convince me eihter way
  16. Firstly, anytime you buy over renting (regardless of costs) you are saving....renting is always you just paying someone else's mortgage so they can profit. By buying, you are paying your own mortgage and will have something to show for it when all is said and done. i've often wondered why people who can buy still rent, i find the concept mindblowing that people would pour money into renting and have nothing in the end.i've only been to calgary once and it was in december. I can't imagine anybody would want to spend any amount of time there in the winter. i'm sure she'll welcome the idea of
  17. Since i'm actually from canada and can't really help with the specifics, I will try to give you a few bits of sound advice when buying a home (especially for the first time)-since mortgage rates are super low right now, lock in as long as you can...stay away from variable rates, even if the rates go a little lower they aren't going to make up for the increase if they suddenly skyrocket. Make sure you get a good mortgage rep, and let them know you'd like to make sure you can pay on the principle with little/no penalties. Usually (at least here) you can make a once yearly payment of 10% princi
  18. i've flown detroit to vegas many times and this actually seems a bit high. I've gone through a expedia a few times and find if you use the "try surrounding days" feature, you can save a good chunk of money. flying on day like Mon-Wed is definately cheaper than flying Thurs-Sat, i also find that leaving Monday is cheaper than leaving on Sun, but i'm not sure about flying in.Stay away from the last minute idea, i had one of the guys on my hubby's pool team do this one year, thinking he would get a much better rate and ended up paying double and because he "had" to be there, he had no choice.
  19. this might be better appreciated in OT for Doinsublime, but i'm here so...happy birthday sir!!
