You have a Mini and a Mini Convertable to boot... You should be Doin it like the Doobies... "Rockin Down the Highway".

Because 5 days in Florida isn't worth 4 days on the road to go to/from.  But yes, when I have 2 weeks, I drive it.  Well, it's always my plan to drive it until my parents call me a week before and plead with me not to drive because it's too worrisome for them.  They always offer to pay, but no way am I taking money from them.

My wife had the walleye... The price 17 99 for one fillet... 19 99 for two fillets. I told her to get two.
I had the Chicken... 10 95 for a 2 piece Dinner 11 95 for a bucket of 8. I got the bucket of 8.
My math was working for me... I'm glad I learned that in kindergarten.


Is it possible that this restaurant is owned by Merck or Johnson & Johnson.

You know... The 2nd pill cost 25 cents to make... The 1st pill cost 1 billion dollars.

Yeah, that Beane is magical, with all the world series and AL pennants his team has won with his can't-lose strategies.

You try living in Oakland and see how much you accomplish.

If I had money, I'd prefer living in San Francisco, tyvm.  :)  (And I have my place all picked out, too!  Discovered it while walking all over the city one day.)

It's a one bedroom and it cost 1.6 million dollars.

Umm... You can order a 2nd bedroom at 1.7 million dollars.

Beane has guts and he's all in for this year.

He drained the farm for right now and it will have to be rebuilt later... He does rebuild frequently... In the coming years... He will trade Donaldson and others for prospects and start over.

I don't think I'd have that type of guts but I sit back and marvel at it.

Who's going to harvest the potatoes in Oakland? With the lack of farmers.

You're not the only one, which coincidentally explains why it takes so much money.

Umm... The 2nd bedroom cost 1.7 million dollars.

I did say ... 'if I had money' ... so I think from that, I'm in fantasy land and don't really care about the realities.

Because it costs them significantly more than $2 in labor.
