    I took two weeks off between my job in Ohio and the one here in San Antonio. I cashed in vacation that covered those days off. I took zero time off between my current jobs and cashed in 10+ weeks of vacation. Essentially, I've been paid continuously or even double paid since June of '03. Even though that time has included now 6 employers.

    Rest of the driveway and sidewalk pressure washed also. It really kicks up the dirt.

    I listened to the radio broadcast on SiriusXM. Didn't sound very promising. And no vote in MOTM thread since I didn't see it.

    Yeah, just couldnít do that. Donít even understand it, really. Iím pretty good at effing around. And, for the record, while my 3 parents were wonderful enough to take care of my college tuition, everything after has been me. That is to say, my sabbaticals have been self funded but I recognize if I had undergraduate debt my choices may have been different.

    Not sure to what you are referring, but the holes DID lose twice in basketball and once in football this weekend. There IS that!

    I have huge lectures at the University of Chicago and Cincinnati Children's this week. Getting on a plane this afternoon and I'm flying to Chicago and then driving from there to Cincinnati and flying home Thursday morning. I've spent a decent amount of time in Cincinnati and I've flown through Chicago dozens of times. But this is only the second real trip to Chicago and it's just one night. Food recommendations would be appreciated. I'm looking for delicious more than I'm looking for swanky. I don't care if it's a Burger Bar as long as it's amazing.

    Since you are a noted admirer of Big Meat, may I suggest Gibson's? They have their own USDA designation for prime meat...and while it is clearly upscale, you can also sit at the bar or just grab a table and really enjoy a feast. Important info: the side dishes and desserts are all comically huge.https://www.gibsonssteakhouse.com/gibsons-chicago/

    See this is why you ask the experts! Eating a steak and thinking about Carl Sandburg in the city of big shoulders sounds like heaven. I wouldn't go so far as to call them cheap, but the prices are reasonable for an upscale steakhouse.

    I asked them what best captured their meaty essence and they put a big strip steak in front of me...divine...waiters are experienced with lots of info...grill is hot enough to melt a glass ashtray, fwiw...

    So you're saying they will respond well to a dude with a shaved head and a Southern accent who says things like: "Yes. I would like for you to bring me a ribeye cooked medium rare the size of a dump truck tire please. And don't trim the fat. That's where the flavor is."?

    Yes. I'm staying downtown. Is it the kind of place I can go to wearing jeans and a comfortable sweater?
