  1. Your 21st Birthday

    Was supposed to have big plans for the 21st birthday... BUT, was working part-time at a deli during the day and accidently sliced the tip of my thumb off in the meat slicer. The pain killers were pretty cool in the hospital, but some tequila would have been more fun. Celebrated a week later... ended up not being a big deal.
  2. Help me pick a honeymoon destination

    Honeymooned here 10 years ago off the beaten path... check out Young Island off the coast of St. Vincent in the Grenadines. A few years later, my wife and I recognized some landmarks during a movie. Turns out Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed there. www.youngisland.com PM me if you want more info.
  3. Rental Car Companies

    In San Diego on business, I always use National. Facility is clean, on airport property, and there is usually a wide selection of cars. If there's no fee for joining, their Emerald Club works pretty well.
  4. Baseball 1-10 Pool

    Timmy - You're doing a great job keeping up with this. Just keep posting those numbers to the Angels!
  5. Luggage Damage

    If you go according to the standard airline disclosures and response, you are SOL. And they will keep telling you that the next few times you ask. Keep escalating and they should ultimately respond with something. It may not be new luggage, but rather a voucher towards a future flight. Also helps to point out how many miles you fly since yo can prove it. It's kind of like filing a health insurance claim... sometimes you have to weave through the first 3 "no's" before you finally get the response you're looking for.
  6. Don Imus Offends Rutgers

    Imus is such a washed up idiot. Hasn't been funny in a long time.
  7. Myrtle beach

    Spring golf trip every other year with the guys (usually 8-12 of us). Great location and great times. I understand North Myrtle, or just over the state line into North Carolina is still (relatively) reasonably priced.
  8. Kielbasa

    All sorts of variations... I like to keep it simple. You can either boil them for about 10-12 minutes (may be long if more than one). My preference, though, is to grill them up. Sear for a minute on each side, and then medium-indirect for about 10 minutes tops. A lot of people like 'em with sauerkraut. I prefer just a good spicy polish mustard (or similar). Enjoy.
  9. Think good thoughts

    Good luck - It sounds like a terrific opportunity.
  10. Huddle Help

    Danger... Danger... I live in the northeast, and haven't heard of this for red sox tickets. I especially don't like #4. I'm not familiar with any legit shops offering a minimum time for inspection. Just simply a 30 day money back guarantee. That raised a red flag for me right away.
  11. Baseball 1-10 Pool

    I'll take the Angels. PM me your address and I'll get a check in the mail to you.
  12. Huddlers in the Northeast

    Agreed... someplace like Seaside Heights would be ideal. But go early in your trip rather than late. Shore traffic on the parkway going into Memorial Day weekend is ungodly.
  13. Basketball Bracket Contest

    Thanks for doing this! Fresh tomatoes and extra mozz!
  14. Help me Help my brother

    Don't confront him... talk with him and let him know your concerns. But, also, let him know you're there for him whatever decision he makes. It sounds like he is going to need the support either way. And if he goes through with the marriage, he will likely REALLY need a best friend and family support. Ultimately, your brother's love and friendship is far too valuable to sacrifice because of a decision you didn't like. FWIW, it sounds like you two have a sibling relationship that a lot of other people would be jealous of.
  15. buying a used car

    Agree with having a good mechanic on call to go over the car. Usually they can spot anything glaring for $50-$100 tops (more for a detailed inspection). As for private versus dealer, I've purchased both ways. Personally, I prefer private sellers because there is more negotiation room, usually more flexible hours to see the car, and you have a better chance of viewing maintenance receipts. It's perfectly acceptable to make a sale contigent on your personal mechanic's inspection. If the seller balks, you walk. Dealers are nice because you might get a warranty and they take care of the registration/tax hassles for you (for a fee, of course). It all depends on which is more importatnt to you. Do some used car homework in consumer reports to see what you can likely expect to get for your price range, as well as recommended models. Good luck.
