I kept track of the number of 10 minute or longer trips I took for a month and scored them yes/no based on whether or not I heard U2 on the radio during the trip. 77% of trips were U2 successful.
    Around the Triangle, it is Bon Jovi, Tom Petty, Queen, and I would add U2 to this. Used to be a lot of Guns N Roses, but they seem to have cut back on that.

    I tend to listen to the 80s stuff first, then classic rock.

    No updates! They said the average wait is 3 days to 3 weeks.

    I'm the same way with "Hoochie Mama" by 2 Live Crew. Gets me every single time.

    I had a car stolen from me in another country and was given the police equivalent of a "shrug" when I asked him what the chances of retrieving the car was. I'm sure he was not thrilled with dealing with American tourists but it had ALL our stuff in it. We'd been in the ocean swimming and the perp must have followed us from the parking lot, nabbed all our stuff while we were swimming and then took off.

    We had 1 credit card left between the three of us and I had to buy everyone new clothes, shoes, etc just to get home.

    Fast forward several months and they did find the car. Almost everything of value was gone but I did get my wallet back minus credit cards. Got my hat back, too, but it was set on different settings so they tried on my hat and decided 'nahhhh...' Kind of offended.

    My youngest son chose Bono as the subject of his 3rd grade Heroes and Heroines project, with the Unforgettable Fire LP as his presentation soundtrack.

    If it was a state resident, the odds are good. I'm no statistician, but something like 25:1?

    The entire problem with the lottery is that you have to play to win.

    But the more you play the more likely you are to win so it seems fair…

    I don't want to give anything away, but I'm getting a NetJets account and will fly around hurling cow turds at those who have dissed me. You know who you are. Laugh if you must, but consider a four pound cow turd travelling at 120 mph before getting too complacent.

    Next stop: Lake Como where George and I will hang for a bit...

    My wife and I caught the performance this past Sunday in Longfellow Park. We greatly enjoyed the production -- even if we didn't completely follow everything which was going on (we're not well versed in Shakespeare and foolishly sat on the perimeter where it was hard to hear certain parts).


    Am I correct to assume that you were the actor wearing the vintage Duke basketball t-shirt?
