    We might as well kick the dead horse across the inauguration line at this point.

    Ah, one of the smells of my childhood.

    A cautious "Glory be," is it finally closed or has there been another naughty episode?
    Please please please nail the lid down hard...
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    I've been debating getting a framing nailer, but not sure I have enough need to justify the expense.

    That thread has been 100% fun for me and no work. But I recognize I'm crazy.

    Hard to know what to do with myself. Maybe take up painting?

    My favorite Greek war story involved Phillip II of Macedon (father of Alexander the Great) and the Spartans. Sparta was a powerful city-state regional power in the Lakonia area of the Peloponnese region.

    Phillip II massed his army nearby, and sent a messenger to the Spartans with a threat — “If I invade Lakonia you will be destroyed, never to rise again.”

    The Spartans replied with one single word — “If.”

    (Hence why “sparse” and “laconic” are still used today to mean stripped down or of few words. There are many other examples but this one is my favorite. And, to finish the story, neither Phillip II or his son ever attacked Sparta).

    Hey! And I suffered from that today! We just made a meaningful connection! Or maybe I just think we did...
