re: Talladega and Montgomery, AL - The Spleen
The shack is closer to Pell City than Talladega. Pretty good haul from Sylagauga. I don't care for their BBq, but they have great burgers. Good Ole Boys BBQ in Sylacauga is pretty good. ...

re: 2018 US OPEN at Shinnecock Hills - The Spleen
[quote]It requires the most skill of any of the majors[/quote] Eh, I'd say it's more a mental test than a skill test. Sure, you have to be on your game, but it's more about taking your medicine and putting bad holes behind you. Everyone is going to have a bad hole here and there. The winner is ...

re: Yellowstone via SLC & Jackson Hole - Updated with Trip Pics! - The Spleen
That would be the plan - leave a day or two after school is out here, which is usually around Memorial Day. I loved Yellowstone, but it was 85 or 86 last time I went. I remember it being pretty crowded even then. Frequent traffic jams at major intersections and sites. I think it was early August...

re: Alabama residents fear return of poop train - The Spleen
My client's office was on the route the trucks took from the rail yard to the landfill. I was pretty far away(5-10 miles maybe) from the actual landfill, but anytime one of those trucks came by the smell lingered for 10-15 minutes. Client said there was often spillage from the trucks, and the smell ...

re: Alabama residents fear return of poop train - The Spleen
I was out in that area for work last fall, and the smell was indescribably awful. Worst thing I've ever smelled. Those residents are right to be pissed off. ...

re: Parish Ghost launch party - The Spleen
This stuff better be good. Bham stores are saying they only expect to get a pallet each tomorrow, if that many. And not all of them will get some. I have to make a beer run tomorrow anyway, so I'll grab some if I see it. ...

re: The OIG reports is already bad. No Political bias ...sorry left - The Spleen
Sure, they're suspicious. And they were investigated and the IG didn't find the attitudes portrayed in those texts tainted their involvement in the case. Maybe that's BS, maybe it isn't, but if you're going to accept the things in the report that suit your bias, and reject the things that don't, tha...

re: Is anyone here really against homosexuality? - The Spleen
There was a gay guy in our hunting club one year. He was an avid deer hunter and usually took most of his vacation time at work during deer season. I had no clue for a while until he told me and another guy there one night. Didn't fit a single stereotype. He did ask us not to tell any of the other m...

re: Suggestions for a hidden camera to help catch potentially stealing employee - The Spleen
Seems like it'd just be easier to revoke his access to the cash first, then monitor things for a while. But I don't know, it's not my business. As for the question, perhaps just a small game camera from a sporting goods store will do the trick. Motion detection, stores on a memory stick, battr...

Great book. I'm about halfway through [i]The Goldfinch.[/i] It's been really good. I've gotten the itch to read [i]The Great Gatsby[/i] again, so I'll probably start it up pretty soon. ...
