The Daleks can time travel.
I'm gonna cast a vote for Caves of Androzani from the original series. It was on Netflix. It's widely acclaimed to be one of the best of the original series. And it has the best cliffhanger in the show's history at the end of episode 3...

I saw it at the Louisiana International Film Festival earlier this year. Thought it was a really good tribute to a talented musician who never got his due for one reason or another. Well worth seeing. It was worth it just for all the crazy stories about Booker -- like how he told everyone he lost h...

If Brian Kelly would get canned, he would practically have his choice of jobs at top to mid-tier programs in power conferences. I could imagine somewhere like Maryland or Virginia scooping him up. ...

I love to say crude things to annoy her. Stuff like announcing "I'm going to swing the brown hammer" or "I'm going to take the Browns to the Super Bowl" when I'm headed to the bathroom. She also hates the words "sammich", "tinkle" and "pee-pee", so I use them at every opportunity. ...

Tennessee football fans would agree with you.
That's exactly why all these LSU fans who are bitching about Miles need to chill. ...

I think there was a new one yesterday -- they always have the fast talking at the end, but this one seemed like it went on for twice as long. It really did sound like someone was fast-forwarding...

They had a menu for it in the 225 Menu Guide that came out last week. But the building is still a mess -- we passed by Friday night.
I would guess they'll be open sometime in January, around the time the spring semester starts....

I remember Ferentz's name came up in connection with the LSU opening after Saban left in 2004. And wasn't he mentioned as a candidate for Steelers job when Bill Cowher stepped down? I seem to recall that, even if it was in the context of "He would be a good choice for Pittsburgh, but he has a giant ...

Whichever way you decide to go, I would call and order a ham today. I don't know when places stop taking orders for Thanksgiving, but it will probably be soon.
And I have a feeling you'll probably have to pick your ham up the day before Thanksgiving. I can't think of anyone that would be open that...

I wouldn't read too much in the numbers about how people are leaving one parish for another.
For one, "new listings" are any home being put on the market -- could be a 50 year old house, could be put up by people moving for work, or downsizing, or upsizing.
The second is that East Baton Rouge...
