  1. This forum is always good for advice on topics outside of hockey and I bet this will be no different. I know Bio has regaled us with stories of her house nightmares, so maybe others have things to contribute? Although home-ownership not in our immediate plans, Josie and I talk frequently about our desire to stop throwing money into the apartment rental void. Our lives are still a little too unpredictable at the moment, but I think within the next two years I want to take a stab at it. Now, I'm no stranger to making hasty and risky financial decisions, but I've lived in enough rental homes and done enough of my own work in those homes to know what I'm getting in to, and I know that preparation is key. I don't want to go into this without knowing what I'm doing. Things I'm curious about: 1. The process of home buying. How did you go about finding, inspecting, financing, etc? I spend a lot of time messing around on Zillow and stuff, but I've never spoken to a realtor or anything. 2. Financial incentives. What is out there for young adults, first time home buyers, people who don't make a lot of money, etc.? 3. What improvement jobs have you tackled yourself? What were your results? Tips? 4. Foreclosed homes and short sales. Ever bought one? How did it go? Obviously this is just an open thread. These are just my conversation starters.
  2. Let's have at it. No politics. Just good old fishin and huntin talk.
  3. I'll start it off with baseball playoffs beginning tomorrow! I hate the idea of one-game series as too chancy, but I love the idea for the tension and excitement.
  4. Since we have a hit thread about complaints, I thought maybe we could have a thread for Fridays where we reflect on good things, positive moments, rave about a restaurant, new additions to your family, etc. I guess my initial rave would be: Fridays, for many of us, are the end of the work week - which is great! For others, Friday is also payday!
  5. I think there is a thread for this already, but I could not find it. A good friend and I watched *Tooth Fairy* last evening. He got it for his kids to watch in 2010. It was really good, surprisingly enough. A hockey themed tooth fairy tale. Two grown men with tears in their eyes at the happy ending.
  6. This thread is inspired by this video: http://FunnyOrDie.com/m/25mm If you watch it, you'll know the line I'm talking about. This is a place to share the "things/devices/stuff" that you think are AWESOME and you personally endorse and recommend to friends.
  7. Complain about anything you want. 1 complaint, 20 complaints, who cares? No one is really listening anyways. My complaint for this week... Fast food workers who are miserable beyond belief while on the job. If you hate your job that much, do something about it to better yourself in life. Go back to school or do whatever is needed to find a better job. In the meantime, if you continue to stay in your current position, suck it up and put on a happy face. M
  8. Let's see if we can give this thread a long run. Post up what you are consuming, restaurant, homemade, just something you are really enjoying at the moment, whatever...... It is Saturday afternoon. The wife is not home. And I have no plans. For lunch I just made myself a plate of Yancy's Fancy Bergenost cheese, good pepperoni, and an assortment of crackers. Opened a bottle of Ovila Saison to quench my thirst. Life is good. How about you?
  9. I mentioned I was in the Queen City yesterday. Did I see a picture of Cellino of Cellino and Barnes on a Cellino Plumbing truck? Twin? Side gig?
  10. With Kamala Harris announcing she is running today. Senator from Cal and former Attny Gen of Cal thought it was a good time to put together a list of announced and rumored hopefuls and discuss them. List link: https://abc7news.com/politics/whos-running-for-president-in-2020-list-of-possible-dem-candidates/5047818/
  11. Overrated zombie soap drama has a thread and the greatest show on television does not? My favorite part of the first episode (of the third season) was when Tyrion spoke to his father. The look on his face as he left the room gave me chills. I also still can't believe one of Daenerys's dragons is named Drogon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnEBatKmLpM
  12. Do we have many UK hockey followers here? We (Clan) just out our head coach Pete Russell (teamGB coach). This sucks.
  13. This topic popped into my head this morning. I thought it could be an interesting one. Which sports venues have you been to? I'm thinking mainly the big 4, but feel free to throw in any other sports or colleges you'd like. I'm going to list college hockey since I've been to a bunch. NHL (8): Buffalo (Aud), Buffalo (KBC), Boston, St. Louis, Denver, MSG, Washington, Detroit (JLA) NFL (3): Buffalo, Miami, Detroit (granted, it was for a hockey game) MLB (5): Fenway, St. Louis, Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore College hockey (14): BU (x2), BC, Northeastern, Providence, UNH, Maine, UMASS Lowell, Dartmouth, Yale, Brown, Harvard, Denver, Niagara Edit: I've also been to a bunch of AHL arenas, but not for AHL games. Editx2: I supposed I've also been in some bouncyball arenas, but only for hockey games.
  14. Watching some baseball and I always wondered why Buffalo doesn’t have an MLB team. I would guess lots of Buffalonians like baseball. Having a team in Toronto doesn’t hurt the Sabres so I can’t imagine negative market sharing. It would give us three different ways to bring a championship to Buffalo too. Only thing we need to make sure is the Pegulas don’t own it. Appreciate everyone’s thoughts on the why and likelihood it ever happens.
  15. Went there on my honeymoon for 13 days and am looking to return. Want to take the teenage kids this summer to celebrate some stuff... We technically have 16.5 max to use on travel (Fri night to a Sun night). That is probably enough time for 2 islands. I could also see one island and maybe some time in San Francisco/California for variety. Any big travelers here want to pontificate on their Hawaiian experiences? Suggestions?
  16. Taking over the University of Alabama HC Position
  17. This is kind of a useless topic, but I just noticed The Aud Club has a million posts and I thought it was neat.
  18. I just signed up to the club again to put this in here and see if anyone has any thoughts on it. +++++ Canadians are very easy going and tend to be rather lazy when digging for information. Our politicians and politics reflect this and there are not very many real scandals. Until now. Here are some links to the story ... https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/gerald-butts-opposition-parliamentary-probe-1.5023941 https://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/gerald-butts-1.5023925 https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-wilson-raybould-snc-lavalin-1.5021220 https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-wilson-raybould-attorney-general-snc-lavalin-1.5014271 This is huge and it is not going away. In fact, every day it just is worse and worse for our Prime Minister. This could very well be his undoing.
  19. My oldest has been applying year. So far, he has been accepted at: University of Rochester University of Maryland University of Miami University of Florida Pitt Penn State Virginia Tech He has no preference to date. Anyone else going through the process?
  20. This is pretty funny. I’m sure there are ones about Republicans too. If I find one I’ll post it.
  21. https://www.wivb.com/news/state/new-legislation-calls-for-social-media-search-before-pistol-permit-in-ny-1/1614323056 In the history of mankind since the development of firearms, when did mass shootings become so prevalent? What other social issues (health, education) have arisen around the same time? Coincidence? Why was it so easy for veterans to get PTSD status? Why do drug courts allow repeat offenders go to rehab instead of prison? How are both connected? Illicit drug use and PTSD. If 2A was meant to prevent government overreach, who would be best suited to defend/train? How are rights and the Constitution taught/affect interpretation for future generations. Do commiters of violent crimes normally announce their intentions on social media? Who does this bill really target? Is NY a test bed given leftist dominance? How has gun control and politics unfolded in history? Keep going New York. You and California are pioneers of a free nation.
  22. I was wondering if a new club for science and technology would be ok. Nothing political but a place to discuss current, future, and theoretical topics. Thank you.
  23. I am not sure if this is thread worthy, but thought so ... This coming November 11th is a very special day, as it marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of the 'Great War'. The 'war to end all wars'. History has shown that not to be the case. You guys and gals know that I am a lover, not a fighter. That is not to say that I do not appreciate and thank those who have served, those who do serve and, especially, those who have paid the ultimate price. So, a big thank you goes out to all that serve, or have served, be you a combat veteran, or not. And I also include any and all first responders, as well. Thank you, with Love from NS. Maybe soon there will be an end to war. One fine day ...
  24. So, I have a couple weddings coming up, one on May 5th and the other sometime in June. I need a new suit. I can't buy off the department store rack. That stuff doesn't fit me and frankly the material quality always seems poor for the price. I wasn't super happy with the last pair of suits I bought from Men's Wearhouse. I didn't like the tailoring process, although the materials were in line with the price. My brother has had good luck with Jos A Bank, but I'm wary of the chain stores. I would still go to one I guess, but it's not my first choice. A local operation would be nice, but I don't know if I can afford a real tailor. I feel like the best I can do on a suit is like $400 and I'd need to really like it. Anyone here have experience with Bureau downtown? Or the New York Store in Lancaster? Or those italian guys, Uomo da Milano, at the Galleria? Some other hidden gem? Should I just kill a guy and take his suit?
  25. Hey wondering if locals sttart migrating to Bulls TP has competition for football. Was wondering if their winning lately has Bills fans migrating to them?
