It will happen precisely at 1:37 pm on Wednesday, October 20 - provided it is overcast in Poughkeepsie and Lindsay Lohan captures Osama Bin Laden earlier in the day.

Did you forget that the groundhog saw his shadow this year?



Obviously, it will all come to an end on the anniversary of Hitler withdrawing Germany from the League of Nations and the first Kamikaze attack.

October 21st.

Oh, and of course precisely at 1:37 pm provided it is overcast in Poughkeepsie and Lindsey Lohan captures Osama Bin Laden earlier in the day.

I certainly agree that there was more useful information in MichaelB's post than the OP.

I don't recall ever having an Albariño - that should be an easy one to put on my micro-bucket list and scratch off!

Thanks. I recall such an encounter with one of Paul’s clan. It was quite enjoyable and well worth repeating.

Now’s the time – an excellent hot weather / summertime libation. Just had some this past weekend with cedar planked salmon. Yum...

Over the past few years offerings have increased and prices have come down, so the timing couldn’t be better. Cheers

The next leg of the recession will begin and the markets will tank immediately after I make the next contribution to my retirement accounts and the buy orders are executed. Trust me, it always happens this way.
