I haven't been here for a while, and even then was never a big poster. Just got the change of terms email so headed here. I don't do Facebook either and don't want to. Will use my last ability to post to let you know that you have always been one of my favorite commentors.

What was your favorite school lunch?

Anything that wasn't Baloney Boats or Deep Sea Dandies (Jeff Co. offerings)

What is your favorite Elvis song?

Change of Habit...from his last movie

I read once that Elvis had 'relations' with all of his leading ladies but one.
Maybe it had something to do with her dressed as a nun? Or her being married in real life.
The nun trio striptease during that movie's intro is pretty bizzar.

Illinois man sentenced to 30 months in prison in case where children were bound and blindfolded in parking lot

He should have just checked into a Holiday Inn and rolled the TV out on to the balcony.

WOW to begin work later this month on upgrade to boost Internet speeds in city

I loved the notice I got of the $7 increase in the mail a few days ago.

Same here...don't think it's coincidence that TV service got really bad just as the switch was made. Have had Sunflower/Knology cable since the late 80s. In all that time, I've never had such bad TV reception as in the last 3 weeks or so. Constant pixilation, audio off about one second from the video, and something I've never experienced: the black screen saying "Not available" or something like that. So I called. Got a guy who seemed to not give a hang, spoke in a jovial tone the whole time and just said "they knew" about the problems. No reason why, no estimate of when it'd be resolved. Haven't noticed any issues with internet. Yet.

25 years ago: Manager remembers early days at city pool

Parent: Why are you kicking my kid out of the pool?
Manager: Because he was urinating in the pool.
Parent: Heck, all kids do that.
Manager: Yeah, but not from the diving board.

Used to love going to the pool in the mid to late 70s as a kid. Would usually be left there all afternoon. Get picked up in the late afternoon sunburned, exhausted and happy--if luck was with me, would get to stop at the DQ on Mass. Walking in there was like walking into a meat locker, I swear you could see your breath. It felt wonderful after being out in the sun all day.

When did you last buy a Hallmark card?

Greeting cards in general are one of the biggest ripoffs ever. If I ever need to send one, go to Dollar Tree and get some fairly nice cards...2 for a buck. I'd rather have the $4 instead of a birthday card.

Traveler's Starbucks quest leads him to Lawrence

I read about a guy whose goal was to eat a burger from a restaurant in every county in Kansas (not the McDonald's type). Wouldn't mind doing that. Starbucks? No thanks.

Mexican restaurant Tapas closes as it loses lease on downtown building; Mexquisito expands into Eudora

With the Honeybees? The thought of Mrs. Howell in that wig still kind of freaks me out.
