| Music Board|| What are you favorite "angry" albums? - TheFolker on 6/22/12 at 8:29 pm|
I listened to Guns N Roses, Use Your Illusion 1 and 2 today for the first time in years and was struck by how angry an album it is. Even the ballads are filled with rage and resentment. It might be one of the angriest mainstream rock records of all time which is an accomplishment because outside of ...

I have been told that if you make a direct FaceTime call from a contacts page no record of the call will appear on your bill but if you convert a call to FaceTime the initial call until converted to FaceTime will appear on your bill. Is this accurate and have you observed this in practice? Sorry, no...
| Coaching Changes|| Rumor: Joker is out - TheFolker on 11/23/11 at 11:54 am|
That is the rumor being reported by a couple of Kentucky reporters/bloggers and floating around UK boards. Announcement after the UT game regardless of outcome. I am hopeful but not confident. The AD has been conspicuously quiet the last few weeks since his vote of confidence for Joker. TIFWIW. Sorr...

I have a 2 year-old son. I have had several people suggest that I open up a 529 account to pay for college. My wife and I both pay into defined benefit pension plans (lucky me) and we also both have a 401k to supplement the pension. It seems to me that it would be easier to just use my 401k to pa...

I'll start a new thread for tonight's episode to ask for thoughts on why it is so important that Dylan McDermott's character continue to treat the kid. The comment was made last episode when they were getting rid of the bodies in the basement. They want the family to stay which is odd because in m...

"A problem for UK much of this season has been allowing one mistake to turn into another. Joker Phillips said after practice today that comes from becoming tense after the error is made. Phillips said he wants his team to "let it rip" against No. 1 LSU on Saturday."

I just read that in the 27 years since Kentucky's last 9 win season there are only 4 BCS programs that have failed to win 9 games in a season. Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Indiana, and Duke. And to make that stat seem even sadder, for 19 of those 27 years we played both Indiana and Vanderbilt. :banghead...

Is it possible for Kentucky to move up the SEC football standings? We've had a pretty good run the past half decade considering where we started. The fans are showing up. Kentucky has ranked in the top 25 in attendance the past 4 seasons. Is it just a matter of investing resources into the progra...
