So I'm slowly moving down the little skinny street called Lasalle Avenue looking for my delivery point and 2 blocks ahead a 3/4 ton truck comes sliding sideways through a turn toward me,

In the last couple weeks I've seen 3 little leach looking things in my yard... and I haven't looked for hard.
They're about 1/8-1/4" long, very dark brown and look like a baby snail, or leach?

If you have tetracylene stained teeth you already understand the question before I ask... if you don't, I'll 'splain it to you...
From my understanding, there's a broad family of antibiotics called tetracylene(s?). Evidently in the 50's, 60's and 70's they didn't realize that administering them ...

I could very well be wrong, but I think we do a very poor job of helping students in high school choose what they think they want to be when they grow up.
We expect and hope an 18-20 year old to make a career choice with very little exposure to varying careers.
If there's not a program to ex...

Looking for a good little pc for my 11 year old.

A buddy of mine has been raving about a steak he had been having at TJ Ribs for several months, so I tried one with him this week.

I hear my friends talk about fishing BS and GL, and they fish with people that grew up fishing out there.
From the way they describe it, its like a maze out there.
If I just head out there and weave my way back in there, is there a good chance of stumbling on fish?

So I bought a 55# wireless controlled mo...

Stumbled on that waterway just west of western levee to the spillway (at I-10). Would've put in that day, but was kinda late, well never mind...
Looks pretty, and I'm assuming that it's outside the spillway, so no 14" min on bass.
