Ok, I have this idea for a riding vacuum, but like a segway (basically a heafty roomba with a handle bar) .Should I quit my job now, or wait a few weeks?


Dang! For a moment I read "bar handle" and not handle bar. I was all in for a second!

Well, if we are indeed building it for a dad, why not both?

Why is it in baseball we have to wait for weeks on end for anything to happen in free agency? In other sports like football and basketball top free agents sign within hours of free agency opening up.

Take a page out of other major sports' playbooks baseball. We want HOT free agent news, and we want it now!

This is Mn, you need to pick up some of the outdoor sports -- ice fishing, skating, skiing, etc. or you will go nuts.

I live in Nebraska, Omaha to be precise.

And we tell the seasons two different ways.

1] Road construction and dead of winter.

2] Football season, followed by recruiting, spring football, summer: with reports about summer conditioning and 7 on 7 drills.

Dyson V8 for me.


...after having to send back 2 lemons.

Both the same model?

I’ve had a Dyson Ball for 8 years and it’s been very good on multiple surfaces and is great for vacuuming copious New Foundland dog fur.

 And besides, aren't all men just grown up boys? 

Grown up? Really?

How would Paddington look in a Twins uniform? Not very big, so endurance may be an issue. But if we only need him to open, he could be a good fit.

 

Paddington...hmmm...I'm picturing Astudillo

The official beginning of the Hot Stove season is when the AFL-season ahs been completed, all rosters have been cleansed of players and reset with additions, and the Rule 5 happens as owners met for the Winter Meetings, this time the first week in December. You have some action then between the holidays with everything falling into place as January rolls around.

 

We end the World Series, see what players declare free agency and celebrate the various awards like Rookie of the Year, Cy Young, MVP and Managers of the Year.

OK, I'm talking in general terms.

I, for one, have yet to fully "grow up" and refuse to do so.

At least the Twins didn't lose yesterday, by not even showing up.....

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

Ya.All three had been the V8. It is a cordless and the battery wouldn't charge on the first 2 after 1-2 uses. 3rd time seems to be a charm and does very well with golden retriever fur. 

 

That said with the 2 lemons, Dyson's customer service has been top notch.

The Twins are all about those "value," signings and trades. 

 

But on a serious note, this team needs to sign and/or trade for talent like Paxton if they're remotely serious about trying to contend.
