Like I said... Those Royals can sure play D...

Why do they look like clowns against the Twins and stellar against everyone else.

I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Royals are supposed to have the best defense in the AL, but haven't been that good against the Twins.

sigh ... I feel overwhelmed ... anyone want to come down here and help me with my 'end of season' cleaning or organizing?

Nice play by Dozier and good turn by Santana. That was an impossible DP that almost happened.

I've seen them look good... I've seen their D win games. But not against the Twins.

Be very, very careful if you are asked to install the Windows 8.1 August update.

 

I FINALLY found a story about the problems:  http://news.softpedi...ot-455173.shtml

 

 

I've had 2 days of h*llish cr*p with my laptop.  Ended up doing the system refresh which reverted me to 8.0.  Just now I instally 99 driver updates from Dell.  I don't even think I'll try the 8.1 update again until tomorrow.

 

Kept my files but lost all my programs.  It has not been a good couple of days.

Sorry to hear that... Updates... I always cringe when one comes down the line.

Except your Twitter updates... Those I like.

I am not going to go too far out on a limb, but I think the Twins will get a hit this inning.

I tried MAC and absolutely hated it.

 

I think I'm too right-brained or something.

On Friday... A co-worker brought a bunch of vegetables. I barely know what vegetables are but I certainly didn't know what these were.

She said what they were but now I can't remember and it's bugging me.

They were like peas but you squeeze the pod to get them out.

Could be... But they had an odd sing songy name.
