    You live in the sticks. That's a bit different than the Cidiots.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Yes I do live in the sticks. By design. When things got serious with Mrs g we prioritized what we thought was most important in life. Living in the metro and dealing with the hustle and bustle didnít make the list. Drawbacks? Yes. Regrets? No.

    I hear ya. When I retire, it's gonna be in the sticks somewhere. The 30 minute drive to get groceries, nearest neighbor 5-10 miles away, etc.

    Is Betty's Pies really worth it? I've been past it a couple times, but never been into it.

    Itís ok if you like pie. It has been around for a long time. Over the years I think itís become an overrated tourist trap. Itís world famous though. The thing is that there is no way all the pies are freshly made from scratch. Iím guessing they sell a couple hundred pies a day in the summer. The facilities and staff canít handle that.

    For me itís nostalgic. I was a month or two old when I visited there my first time. Many pictures and memories of me and various family members throughout the years. Most of whom are no longer here. I usually try and sit In my grandfathers favorite booth. Iím doing my part and passing that down to my boys because thatís how I roll.

    Good Evening Lodge!
    Supposed to pick up my friend from the airport at 12:49 AM. Now it is 1:45 AM. There is weather. Sigh.

    Meanwhile mr les has been on the phone with att/direct TV for >1hr. They shut off channels we've had for 20 yrs with no explanation, have tried to tell him he never had them, tried to tell him he doesn't have the right PIN (he did), and one hour more of stuff that constitutes ineptitude and idiocy. mr les is not happy.

    RFAlph?

    Good Afternoon Lodge!

    Got in last night at 3AM. Not only did the flight get delayed there were multiple detours including the exit to the airport being closed and the alternate route I usually take also had detours. I saw parts of Boston that I didn't know existed.

    We got new computers today at work! They're pretty sweet, updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10. And we still get to keep Internet Explorer as our browser! Yayz!

    (ok, the new comps are really nice, big arse screens, so scrolling left-right is gone, and that's a huge upside, and they are a lot faster for processing, but still, IE?!)

    Corporate has software designed for IE, so thatís what they load. Adding Chrome or Firefox would require additional testing - money.
