Karin and I have been discussing what facial-hair style I should sport for the wedding. To this end I have tried several looks recently, and would like any feedback you may have.
The Options (in evolutionary order):
1. The Full Beard
2. The Van Dyke
3. The Horseshoe
4. The "Doc Holiday"
5. Or the Clean look.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
My friend Kirk pointed me to this and I had to share it. These guys, the Ramsay Downholers, are a beer-league hockey team in the Calgary area who started a reality-style show of their own. Watching this, I laughed out loud and was reminded of many of the characters I share a locker room with every week. Apparently they are trying to get their show on TV and have a pilot that is being shopped in Canada. I sure hope on of the US channels picks this up so I can watch it. Until then, at least we can watch it via their website.
This video is a brief introduction to the team. Enjoy!
For any who may not yet know we lost a dear member of our family last week, my Grandmother Daphne Schirripa. I wanted to post this so that everyone could be aware that there are two online memory boards that can be posted to in her honor.
First, this one at Legacy.com.
My Grandmother had a profound impact on my life, which seems to be true for many of the people she met in her life. I won't go on more than to say Grandma was an amazing lady and she will be greatly missed.
I really can't describe what I felt inside when I read the e-mail. Dismay? Disappointment? Anger? So many things at the same time, really.
Either way, I thought it was worth sharing. Below is the text of an e-mail -- mostly unedited -- from a state resident. The only changes I've made is omitting the writer's name and deleting the actual location in an effort to preserve some of this dimwit's dignity.
Just for clarification, the "silly wrap around" is a roundabout.
Read on, cheerful reader...
You are going to have to do something about the dumb drivers that use that silly wrap around at the intersection at [STATE ROAD] and [ANOTHER STATE ROAD]. They just don't know how to use them. We was on the way to [A METROPOLITAN AREA IN MICHIGAN], and we had a car that stop before we got the intersection and they sat there and let four car from the east which was all going straight West, and by the time they got on there way there was 7 cars sitting waiting to go, we were all going South bound.
We see this happening all the time. You should of made it two lanes or just go put up a traffic lights. Some one will be killed there , just wait and see. Sent a car or two and have them video the intersection for a week. You will not like what you see. We even saw a driver cut off a semi and the driver of the semi had to jam on is brake and just miss the car that cut him off, so we stop to let the trucker get through.
But the intersection is nothing but headaches.
