    Might have been Nuxhall. Though Marty is also a possibility. No. It's not. Not even the Dusty years .. good clubhouse manager if you were a veteran, worst in-game manager in MLB history. His moves directly costs us game 3 and 5 vs the giants back then. Game 4 they just spanked us. I had to listen to the first 7 innings on the radio as I was working to pay my way through my last year of college at the time, delivering pizza. Would run up to each door so I could get back to car as fast as possible when I couldn't time it for between innings as Rijo just shut those guys down. Got off just in time to watch the last two innings. Still can't believe that's the last time we've even been in the LCS.

    Yep, Our Reds sure are. 10 of last 12. Who would have thunk it after the start they had to this season. Feels like so very long since 2013. Would love to see us take down the HatedDodgers (not that Im optimistic we could actually do that). ANd yes, that's one word. My father was a Reds fan all his life, my mother was and still is is a Yankees fan. Both always referred tot he HatedDodgers that way. I was usually up first so read the paper before everyone else, and when my dad would sit down for breakfast his first question was almost always "how did the Reds do?" The second was almost always did the HatedDodgers lose?

    Broken Ribs

    Yeah. That's what my sister and brother-in-law (both docs) suggested when I had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff. I stopped taking the big gun as son as I could, after only a few days. Then I shifted fully to alternating between Acetaminophen and Naproxen (IE Alleve). Naproxen or Ibuprofen (both NSAIDS) is basically a personal choice. They key point is alternating the Tylenol with either NSAID, since taking either an NSAID or Tylenol exclusively can be bad, especially with extended use. Alternating works to minimize the risks of either by alternating the major organs affected. NSAID's are worse for the kidney, while Tylenol is worse for the Liver. At least that's the theory. BTW, the above assumes (of course) that you don't already have either a liver or kidney issue. In which case, ask a real doctor. In any case, it worked quite well in my case.as on my right shoulder. I've never had a rib issue, but I will say moving as little as possible sounds like the best plan, as hard as that is. I basically sat in my "comfy" chair propped up for pillows for 90-95 the first week after surgery, which helped a lot those first coidle of weeks when any movement of my shoulder .. well lets just say it sucked. Hope you feel better soon!

    Great choice/find Hobot. A very tired but sound Suhali returning home after 10 plus months at sea. Sir William Robert Knox-Johnston sailed her from Falmouth to Falmouth, finishing the original Sunday Globe Race on his 32 ft Teak planked Ketch after 312 days alone at sea. He ended up being the only one to finish that first solo non-stop circumnavigation race/challenge. Though the Frenchman Bernard Moitessier would likely have finished if he hadn't decided to just keep going east for Tahiti after rounding Cape Horn once he found out Knox-Johnston had finished. Moitessier would also almost certainly have taken the prize for fastest circumnavigation if he had finished, since he rounded Horn just 20 days after Knox-Johnston, despite starting 2 moths later. As I've already mentioned on at least one other thread, if you haven't read "A Voyage For Madmen" by Peter Nichols, you really should.

    That's closer it time than me. We drove over it about a month or so before it collapsed. Both directions. We were on a college visit trip. On the way north I actually even teased my sister about her fear of bridges, quite literally right about half way across that specific bridge. Her natural response after we heard about the collapse .. "See!"

    Forgot an important one .. Everett McGill as Stilgar.

    Missed this reply back in January. Only noticed it now that the thread was refreshed with the new movie preview. Have to say, a better epitaph for a movie may never have been written. "A waste of a tremendous cast." The new preview looks very promising, and I like the casting body type at lest for Paul. Since he was supposed to be a little small for his age. But that original cast? Jürgen Prochnow as Duke Leto Atreides Patrick Stewart as Gurney Halleck Francesca Annis as Jessica Linda Hunt as the Shandout Mapes. Virginia Madsen as Princess Irulan Sting as Feyd Rautha And so on... Truly a waste.

    "National Cleavage Day"

    Right, which is why I dont get the photoshop. It's not like there aren't similar pics of her available.

    The face yeah, but the dress/body is someone else. The fake actually has at least 6 variants in the dress color. Original here: Though I'll admit to being clueless why someone would bother photo-shopping KD's head on anyone else's body.

    Yeah. My bad. Understand that 5th grade for me was over 40 years ago ...

    The launching of one of the Doolittle Raid B-17's on it's way to Tokyo in April 1940. I read the book "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo" for a 5th or 6th grade history report. Not much real physical impact/success, although one near finished small carrier was damaged and it's launch delayed by 6 mos or so. Still, there was a morale effect both in the US and Japan. I think it also pushed up the timing of the failed attack on Midway. US success at Midway was largely founded on a US intelligence success and a correlated Japanese intelligence failure. The US cracked the Japanese code at least part figured out the attack was coming, and that Midway was the target. While the Japanese thought the Yorktown had been sunk at the Coral Sea battle, and thus were not expecting 3 US carriers.
