I'm up 25 with Murray to go and he's done. Made a few last minute roster changes that paid off. Started Patterson, scored 32.6 with bonuses, when megatron was ruled out. Probably would have started him even if Calvin went. Slipped in dalton over cutler a few minutes before noon for a 10 point differ...

I would quote the article but it's better to watch the video. Pretty awesome of a company, whose industry is known for causing travelers grief during the holidays with travel delays and high travel costs. They're also donating flights to needy families to reunite with loved ones for the holidays.

Staying in Prairieville. Talked to Omar the other day and he's working on picking down a deal with the failed bakery next to Tommy's fish house. I think it'll help him grow more. He could sure use the extra space and I think that location will give him more exposure. The current place is tucked back...

Bought some of this from the impulse buy shelf in line at Walmart. Pretty good stuff and not that expensive. I think it was less than 4 bucks for the bag, cheaper than Jack Links. Have any of you seen other flavors?

This guy is pretty badass. It's never happened to me but he shows how keeping your wallet in your front pocket isn't as effective as you think. Although he's in a stage setting for his acts, I'm sure there are people out there equally as gifted at lifting shite off of people.
