[quote]2800 sq ft aint exactly a huge house IMO[/quote]
Yep. Ours is 2,500 of living space, with another 1,500 in the basement/garage. On just under a half acre. Plenty of room in the backyard for the kids to play and the dogs to run around in, without it being overkill in the summer when I cut...

My wife has some health issues. Nothing to the point of her not functioning, and she hasn't truly been diagnosed with it, but the symptoms are pretty much the list of what fibrymyalgia is. She has tried different medications to help, all non-narcotic stuff, and is now altering her diet as well. H...

No, MobileIron is an app. It accesses company email. I downloaded the app one time on an okder phone but never went through with getting IT to set me up. The wifi and password are separate from MobileIron. That is just a security thing since I work for a bank. ...

I won a $1,000 scholarship for having a Troy State tag on my truck in college. We didn't have to pay to enter the drawing but ok Alabama you already pay an extra $50 for specialty plates and that money goes to the school. They drew my name at a football game that I didn't go to because it was floodi...

And y'all let this get to 7 pages without a CFA reply? Don't we all know by now that Popeyes and Church's, and hell, even some KFC's, are for the blacks and CFA and Zaxby's are for whites?

The more important question is how did the NBA survive with requiring a translator for Yao Ming. Who knows what the big man was really saying? He could have been dog-cussing American reporters all day and the translator would have just been giving the cliched soundbite responses....

Yes, it is.
Tons of sponsor money each week (and I mean tons. I used to work for a company that sponsored a very popular driver) and the level of competition with a dozen cars vs 43 would sway things tremendously. If a team gets 2-3 cars in, an...

8 minutes a mile is hard for me to maintain for more than 3-4 miles. They usually stretch to 10 after that. But if you're in running shape it isn't hard to do that for a few miles. And it is pretty easy to get there if you're not. It is the wall you hit around 3.5 miles when you're working up to dis...
