    Nobody's excited for baseball???

    Slow day, thought I'd swing by AAAC and see if there was any lively discussion surrounding baseball...but I couldnt find a thread for this season... It's been a loooooooong offseason for us Dodgers fans (seriously...when did the Giants become baseball's version of the Pats??? Give it a rest...

    weird habbit that I need some help with...

    Lately for whatever reason, I've been into wearing my dress shoes kind of dull...well, maybe "dull" is the wrong choice of words...more like with a matte finish, that is to say, still a rich deep black or brown, free of scuff marks, but with as little shine as possible...I guess after years of...

    Meh, Springstein is still "The Boss" in my book...

    Slow newsday I guess...I found (yet another) article that I thought I'd throw out to the AAAC family and see what everybody's take is...I guess it reminded me of AAAC because it was from the Guardian lol...

    Can't buy happiness???

    Okay so I havent started a new thread here in God only knows when, so I thought I might step out of semi-retirement for a moment because, this article seemed like something that might stoke up some good conversation here... My thoughts...As I get older, the less important money becomes to...

    british The Mighty Boosh...

    I will admit, I just recently discovered them earlier this year. I normally dont care for most British comedy because...well...it isn't funny (yeah, yeah, I know you have to an intellectual in order to "get it"...whatever)...but these guys are quite possibly as funny as Monty Python (and at...

    Traveling and Biorhythms

    So I've been doing alot more business traveling with one of my side ventures (well actually, it's kinda become my real job, and my "job" job has just become supplimental income...but that's neither here nor there)...anyways...I've noticed that the little 2 and 3 day jaunts are a cool way to see...

    Say Hello To the Bad Guy...

    Slow morning, thought I'd check the forum...I was hoping one of the more fanatical jingoists on the boards might have posted something about President Obama shaking hands with hugo chavez (I figured that a gloom and doom prophecy about how he's damned us all or a back and forth between...

    Back again...

    https://online.wsj.com/article/SB121193695783324733.html?mod=googlenews_wsj not like anybody cares (Oreos are better)...but kind of interesting, to see that it's back "by popular demand"...now if only I could get a bunch of people to sign a petition requesting that Dreyers bring the Vienetta...

    In the future, all meals will come in pill form...

    well...no...I doubt that'll happen any time soon...but, I suppose there is something kind of sci-fi about the fact that we can now take our meals in bar form... I find it alot more convenient at lunch time to run acros the street to the Trader Joes (I know, I know, I hate that place) and pick...

    Going to the Bank...

    Just a dumb observation...I dont really care one way or another...but, when did banks start treating their customers like crap??? I recently closed my Wells Fargo account of nearly a decade because they refused to fix their own mistake...so when I went to the branch to talk to the manager and...

    The obligatory baseball thread...

    Okay...don't know why...but I just have this feeling...this year...it's gonna be the Mets...in a grand fashion too...they've flirted with the post season for too long now, I think it's just gonna be one of those situations where once they finally make it into the playoffs they'll have no choice...

    Flying in style...

    Planning my birthday trip this year...sence it's gonna be a long flight, I've decided to go first class...I have the option of taking just about any airline I want...I've flown first class before, but it was so long ago, I dont really remember it, plus I was so young that I didnt have to come...

    Tennis is a prejudice game...

    Okay...so I jokingly touched on Richard Williams in another thread...but I've kind of thought about what he really said yesterday evening when they were talking about it on PTI...and well...I wonder... now...I don't really like tennis, I watch a little bit, but honestly the only thing that I...

    Safe investments???

    As a young man, I'm always looking for safe places to squirrel away a little of my hard earned dough...with a good chunk of my 401 (k) being invested in stocks, and the prospect of a democrat in the white house darkening the horizon, and the fact that I dont have that much faith in my employer...

    Death and...

    uuugh...just got the nasty surprize of learning that I have to pay a whole heap more than I thought I would in taxes this year...I suppose at least it's good because it shows that I made more last year...but it still hurts knowing that I'm gonna have to shell out more of my hard earned cash just...

    Joggers...

    Winter is on it's way out, but it's left it's mark on my midsection in the form of a flabby pooch, but not to worry...the days of outdoor jogging are back (I just can't get into running on an indoor track)...unfortunately it was a little drizzly the other day when I was planning on breaking out...

    Try to pull a fast one on me huh???

    Okay...So I recently purchased a Sean Taylor jersey on eBay, it was pretty cheap, so I probably should have been weary, but I have gotten bargains on jerseys on eBay before...anyway when it came today, it was pretty obvious to me that it was fake...I compared it to the other authentics in my...
