    I may be wrong, but I think there is another online radio station (from the Chicago area I think) that also has a Grateful Dead hour ... but I don't remember it being that late at night. Ask MikeyLikesIt about it.

    Watch yourself! If you are walking fast, those could possibly be subject to spontaneous combustion with all of that heat from friction.

    Tell me you don't wear your white shoes and white belt until after Easter.

    I found this on ebay and just had to buy a couple. I've been looking at them for awhile and this is the best price yet. I'll let you know how the transaction went.

    Default did you know??

    Here I thought I was being brilliant. I did my taxes last night, dropped them in the mail this morning and then had to stop at the post office later as I needed a few stamps. Postage went up 2 cents. I guess that means the post office will return it to me marked as "insuffiicient postage " as the stamp I had was 37 cents. I rarely mail anything anymore as I pay all my bills online.

    That is something I also cannot figure out. They will mail it back to you because it has insufficient postage which means you have to put more stamps on it when they could have just sent it to where it was going. Either way, they are sending it through the mail.

    Maybe you should have put the IRS as the return address

    I carried a small container of Halon when I wore the suit. Told people that it was a bottle of cologne.
    You are correct; the whites don't come out until after Easter.
    You must be quite a fashion buff yourself.
    Ever consider it as a career?
    A 39 cent stamp. How ridiculous. Why not round up to 40?
    All those pennies.

    Cheffie, that is government logic for you right there. Just makes you shake your head and wonder eh?


    As for the 39 cent stamp instead of 40 cents - see above writing.

    It is the same reason that gas is $2.18 and 9/10. Now why in the Hell can't you just say it is $2.19? Would that be so frickin' bad? Would it?

    Using the words government and logic in the same sentence is an oxymoron.

    At least I found out before I have to mail off the Valentine's day card.

    Well if that is the case, Why can't we just mail letters without any postage at all? Just like SuperChef said, put the return address to where you want the letter to go.

    Pepsi, Sweet Tea, and RC Cola (only if you have a moon pie to go along with it) and occasionally a cheerwine or sundrop!

    I think I have to acknowlege and agree with my esteemed collegues, Mr Mitchell and Mr Garcia. (although a substitute of rum works well with me too.)

    But for a low octane drink, coke gets the $. I tried to drink Canada Dry once, but there's just way too many lakes 'n rivers up there.
