    I've been meaning to read this and just never obtained a chance. It is an issue that Im actually interested in, I just started reading and Im glad I did. You are a great blogger, one of the very best that Ive seen. This weblog undoubtedly has some facts on subject that I just wasnt aware of. Thanks for bringing this stuff to light.

    Bike riding in Bolingbrook tomorrow am with my sweety (we've stopped looking for Stacy Peterson).
    Celebrate my granddaughter's first bday also tomorrow then Sunday I babysit while her parents watch a Cubs game (Cubs suck – I'm a Sox fan)

    August 5, 2011 at 4:41 pm |
    • RichardHead@Chicago Lady

      Now wait a minute-What about Sammie Sosa or Keith Moreland who was a catcher for my old High skool team and played for the Cubs and then....Your right..Cubs suck.

  14. I Heart Evil Grin

    LOL, nope, the french dip is unhealthy enough, although we do make them ourselves to control the portion. I am going to do the BBQ pulled chicken on rolls and a variety of chex mix/ chips, gonna start out slow and go from there, worse comes to worse the hub and I eat leftover BBQ chicken sandwhiches for 3 days. and if it makes people stay and drink more and I need more food in a pinch i can order some pizzas

    • RichardHead@IHEG

      Excellent choices. I hate to ask this but do you need a license to sell or serve food in the bar?

      August 5, 2011 at 4:52 pm |
      • I Heart Evil Grin

        Sell yes, serve no. I have worked back end in a restaruant during H.S and my father was a chef so I am more than knowledgeable about safe handling practices, so I am not worried about getting anyone sick. Good Looking out tho! cuz it would suck to do it and gotten in trouble!

        August 5, 2011 at 4:58 pm |
  15. I Heart Evil Grin

    1.5 hours until FREEDOM and a french dip sandwich and a glass of red!

    August 5, 2011 at 4:31 pm |
    • RichardHead@IHEG

      What? No Freedom fries with that? What did you decide to serve on Sunday?

    Best line I've seen today in reference to the jobs report but I don't remember where I saw it? Like a pig in lipstick. I def will have to reuse that one! :)

      I replied to your West & Central question above.

      I'm leaving work now but I'm sure I'll be checking back from Home Sweet Home. Y'all have fun!

    I think Odie could text better than me and he has no thumbs... What's cooking this weekend, besides the weather?

    August 5, 2011 at 3:47 pm |
    • RichardHead@JBJ

      Unless I start grilling at midnite due to the heat,WD and I will be inside under the a/c vents. What are you and DeadEye doing?

      August 5, 2011 at 3:51 pm |
      • JBJingles@RH

        No plans so far, maybe some Wii Bowling, but I have been trying to take it easy on my back/leg, but nothing is helping. Last injection did zip, nada, nothing, so I can have 1 more, then time to consider surgery?? I'm looking at going to Mayo in Scottsdale for a 2nd opinion on what is really going on. Can they remove a spine or would that then make me a wimp??

        August 5, 2011 at 3:56 pm |
      • JBJingles@RH

        Fire that bad buy up inside next to a window with a fan blowing!! Oh wait, that would be a really bad idea I remember that incident now....

      • RichardHead@JBJ

        Interesting question. May I recommend that you watch "The Tingler" staring Vincent Price and it should calm your nerves about back surgery. BTW,Is it "Naked" WII Bowling?

        August 5, 2011 at 4:00 pm |

        Shhhh, I am at work still....

      May take Miss Saigon to the trap range on Sunday...Breakfast with my pastor manana.

      August 5, 2011 at 3:55 pm |
      • RichardHead@Truth

        Taking him to Lincoln House for breakfast? The Mrs. should be getting pretty good by now on the shooting range.

        August 5, 2011 at 4:04 pm |
      • Truth@RichHead, JBJ

        Nah, we're in the north part of town, so we go to this restaurant near a golf course and maybe hit a bucket afterward before the day warms up.

        Miss Saigon would do WAY better at the trap range if she would just wait to draw a bead on the target. She fires WAY too quickly and usually overshoots the bird.

        August 5, 2011 at 4:10 pm |
      • RichardHead@Truth

        Me thinks that she gets a little nervous and then overshoots. She'll get the "Hang" of it. :))

        August 5, 2011 at 4:25 pm |
      • Truth@RichHead

        She is doing a lot better with the .410. I learned on that one when I was a young'un, and it is a LOT lighter than my 12 gauge. I keep telling to count "Mot, Hai, Ba" (one, two three in VN), but I think she gets excited to be shooting. She is like a little kid in that regard. Pretty cute.

        August 5, 2011 at 4:34 pm |
      • RichardHead@Truth

        Hahahaha,You better be ready to drop and roll if she does hit one ! Take some pictures for me if you can...I will call her Annie Oakley jr. :))

    Alrighty folks! I am calling it an early friday to go enjoy a run through the woods! Hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!

    Eating grapes when you have heartburn is so not a good idea. DAMN you beer and Jalapeno poppers at 2am!
