    I spoke with my nephew last night (11 years old) and he wasn't sure he would be able to sleep last night because he's so psyched for the game and his first NY trip.
    GO DUKE!!!
    I'm hoping to bring the young Turks on the train ride to Cameron Square Garden for the St John's game.

Cleveland State from the 1986 tournament, the first 14 seed to make the Sweet Sixteen. Yes, they were properly impressed.
    That's great! Moms know everything, and they have eyes in the back of their heads. Kids must never forget that...

    Sorry to hear that, CCA. Find some palmetto bugs and take it out on them. Be especially vicious as you grind them into the pavement with your heel...

    Wasn't there a song called "Everything Reminds Me of My Dog?" Lavabe might be interested in it...

    OK, I'm starting to run out of replies or things to say and I need to pass the baton. I can't in good conscience post a word at a time, sorry folks...

    Send some of that warm air a couple hours north, please! You can keep the arctic cold, tho....
    Glad to hear he arrived safely.

    I think you are sending the arctic cold south to us - can't you send it back to the north whence it came?

    Oh one other thought - any of the vball players stay up to watch the women's final four last night? Penn State vs Stanford on Saturday in the finals.

    Penn St almost pulled a 1991 UNLV - they were undefeated. They went up 2-0 on Nebraska. Nebraska won the next two games to even the match and took a lead in the 5th game before Penn State stepped it up a notch.

    Mrs Turk stayed up late to watch it and was in a foul mood when the alarm went off this AM...

    Well, looks like I got 7 posts in a row before DIK terminated my streak with extreme prejudice with a post about the WEATHER... (yawn...)

    "Thank you very much. Why don't you give me a nice paper cut and pour lemon juice on it?!?"

    I hope she is not trying to become my arch-nemesis. I have enough of those as it is...

    Thank you, Turk.

    It's my (failed) wedding anniversary. It's also the anniversary of my dad's death.

    Just sort of a crappy day all around. . .

    I'm not sure how to be an arch-nemesis. Can I take lessons somewhere?

    I'm sorry to hear you are having a crappy day. Find a piece of obnoxious light blue - you know the color I'm talking about - and rip it into shreds. It might help.

    I'm sorry you're having a crappy day. I can say all kinds of things hoping you'll feel better, but you probably won't. So, if you want to chat, call me!

    East Rutherford = Bergen County
    Secaucus <> Bergen County

    Sorry for the reminder; on the other hand, it is MY native county.

    In an attempt to find good things that happened today, I found this on infoplease.com:

    December 19

    1732: Benjamin Franklin began publishing Poor Richard's Almanac.

    1776: Thomas Paine published his first American Crisis essay, in which he wrote, "These are the times that try men's souls."

    1843: Charles Dickens published "A Christmas Carol."

    1946: War broke out in Indochina when Ho Chi Minh attacked the French.

    1972: Apollo 17 splashed down in the Pacific, ending the Apollo program of manned lunar landings.

    1984: Britain and China signed an accord returning Hong Kong to Chinese sovereignty on July 1, 1997.

    1998: President Bill Clinton impeached on two counts by the House of Representatives.

    2003: Muammar al-Qaddafi of Libya announced that his country would discontinue development of weapons of mass destruction.

    Hmmm... mixed bag there. Funny enough, here was today's word quiz:

    Young Turk

    "Those kids are a bunch of Young Turks," grumbled the teacher. He was referring to students who were

    a.) annoying little ankle biters who refused to settle down.

    b.) impatient reformists who expected their old curmudgeon of a teacher adopt new ways, and to do it NOW.

    c.) unfamiliar with study habits and research methods.

    Wait a minute, I have to choose ONE?!? Where is "d.) All of the Above" ?

    My ex is from Ridgewood. What's your hometown?

    I dated a nice Jewish boy from Bergen County. He, BTW, is the former boyfriend who was a Hole. Thus, the first time we broke up, I became a Duke fan.

    You have to watch lots of re-runs of Batman and Speed Racer.
