I'd love one day to go back--that was fun.

As enjoyable as Scotland was though, I'd want to spend much more time in Wales. The Welsh language amazes and enthralls me. I hope a good chunk will survive pas my lifetime, but tv is doing what 1,500 years of Saxon/Norman occupation could not.

Mind sharing cost/budget on something like that?

What a journey.

Ron, what in particular about Milngavie should I research/explore?

What a journey.

I cannot believe the words "toothed vagina" are on the Apple website.

I think you might want to have your sound down when you watch this trailer... but it isn't necessarily unsafe for work.

Bill things have changed so much since I was there that I couldn't offer any relevant information, other then try to do as many bed & breakfasts as you can. If your selective, it can end up being quite affordable way to travel in the British Isles.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
Quote

Why are most Americans so utterly willing to have an essential part of their hearts sliced away and discarded like so much waste? What are we to make of this American obsession with happiness, an obsession that could well lead to a sudden extinction of the creative impulse, that could result in an extermination as horrible as those foreshadowed by global warming and environmental crisis and nuclear proliferation? What drives this rage for complacency, this desperate contentment?

I feel this way about so many people I meet -- it's as if they are fake and plastic. I never understand the saccharine type. All that cloying smiling and pleasure.

I think not eating a sufficient volume of food in any given day increases my susceptibility to anxiety attacks. Does this sound plausible to any Sporkers who have even a smattering of knowledge in health related matters?

I have had exactly THIS today to eat:




And that's not much. (two clif bars).

Anxiety? Well, NOT from eating. They cut 3% of our workforce today and said they need to cut 20% of costs going forward. THAT is what has made me anxious!

The more I eat LESS, the less hungry I get. I find.

What a journey.

Clif is his deceased father. That's sick.

What a journey.

though if you call the company, the voice mail greeting is "hi, this is clif. no, really, it's clif." it's a nice homage.

The best BBQ joint here, their radio ads have the deceased founder. Strange.
