    Reminded me of the lyrics to "Chicken Bone" performed by The Seatbelts.

    I just saw a headline that said, in big bold letters, that US soccer team ALMOST scored a goal. I just thought that was funny.

    If I want to watch a bunch of guys try to score for 90 minutes I'll just hang out at a local bar.

    When you live along the Great Lakes the weather is never what you expected. Even when it is. Or something like that.

    It was back in the mid-80s here. A pleasant surprise considering that it was in the 40s last week.

    The main contractor who's fixing my home from Ida is from Honduras suggested I should live there if I don't like the cold, then he half jokingly said that I'd probably get killed because I'm white.

    I learned Spanish in school from Kindergarten up until 10th grade (or maybe 11th), so I understand it very well but struggle to speak it.

    So one of the workers who spoke almost no English was very surprised when I spoke to him in Spanish.

    I even bought them Baleadas from New Orleans to thank them for all their hard work.

    I told it them that it was the best baleadas in Louisiana, which isn't necessarily a high bar to meet.

    Well, I certainly won't be raising my hand...mostly because I'm using both hands to type, but partly because I have no idea what you are talking about.

    That last statement was so generally true that I didn't feel I needed to elaborate in that post, but I will here: I get to drive most of the length of Idaho with a winter storm warning in effect. It would only get worse if I were to wait another day, so I'm going.

    Pretty much the same here. I grew up in a largely Puertorriqueño y Dominicano neighborhood and lived there until 2008, but I avoid it because now the crime there is off the charts I'd probably get killed because I'm white.

    Still wondering about the origin of that word. I might look it up...if I remember....later.

    Found the origin of the name:

    https://www.tenfourmagazine.com/2015...circus-wagons/

    And that just raises a new question: How the heck did szlamany know this? It doesn't seem like it was in common usage, but more of a sub-culture thing.

    Driving from CT to St. Charles Missouri, and back, for example. In my bosses Cadillac, 1984 model of some sort, with the required CB radio (to talk to the truckers) and of course an 8-track...

    ...listening to exactly that song, well not exactly, lol!

    "My Maserati does 185! I lost my license, now I don't drive"...that was an 8-track hit for us!

    I can't tell you the number of times I've left southern CT on a weekend to be in Toronto for a meeting Monday AM - at least I drove a Trans-Am!

    Ah, so you heard about the Monfort Lane from the CB?

    I knew about CBs, and occasionally encountered one, but never had one. They were a natural fascination of youth. They were essentially the Twitter of their day: Short messages, often sub-culture lingo.

    That last statement - that was true. If you got on the CB and did not follow protocols you were nearly banned. Even switching channels had a protocol...

    With the CB, you always knew about cops, traffic and girls in cars, lol! And every idiot driver!

    Meanwhile, my decision to work from home is being reinforced as the rain is turning to snow. Nothing like an icy commute home in the dark.

    Re: Post Race!

    I was driving home in the dark one time when I saw something glowing red come from the car ahead of me. At first, I thought that perhaps it was a lit cigar, but it did appear too large. As it bounced past me on the interstate, I realized that it was a lump of metal a bit smaller than a baseball, glowing bright orange/yellow.

    It had come from the bottom of the car, not out the window. I got off at the next exit. Hope they didn't get hauled off on a tow truck, but when lumps of glowing metal are falling off the bottom of your car, it just isn't your day.

    As the snow falls clunkily outside the window, I notice that we're currently over 150% of normal for the year, so far. That's a great start. I see more storms should arrive towards the end of the week. We need all we can get.

    Some places don't care so much about winter snow, but it's pretty vital to this region.
