My wife's 91 year old uncle has been in an assisted living facility since his wife died a few years ago. His 56 year old daughter checks in on him daily. On Friday, she went to take him out to lunch. When she got there, he said "I'm all packed. Mom is ready, and I am going with her." He had a ...View Topic - Replies (7)
| O-T Lounge|| Recently deceased in dreams - Minnesota Tiger on 11/11/15 at 6:48 pm|
I dreamed last night of my Father. He passed away two weeks ago and I was sort of anticipating this dream because I experienced it with my brother 24 years ago and my mother 18 years ago. He was vivid, calm and calming, and most notably, like the others, he did not speak. I awoke with a feeling of...View Topic - Replies (36)

Landing in New Orleans in 20 minutes with my boss and three executives. We are eating at Parrain's later tonite. Looking for a lunch recommendation between N.O./ MSY and B.R., hopefully Cajun/Southern, etc- something to impress my Minnesota colleagues (yeah, I know, easily done....) Thank you! ...

In Minnesota, gay marriage was not on the radar 5 years ago. In 2010, Republicans, benefiting from a national anti-Obama sweep, took over the MN house and senate and immediately pushed a tea party agenda, including putting an anti-gay marriage amendment on the ballot for the next election. In 2012...

I just received a request to complete a 360 evaluation of a former colleague for the second year in a row. He is a Dean of Science. My management education and professional development left me with the impression this is a process you engage on an occasional basis, for example every 3 or 5 years, ...View Topic - Replies (4)

Saban made a fundamental mistake playing too many lineman without any speed players on the field to chase the receiver. This reminds me of the 2005 Capitol One Bowl, when he did not have a line of defensive backs near the end-zone at the snap of the ball. My 5 Iowa Brothers in law still like to ta...
