  1. Name that movie quote

    Seeing all the hoopla about the actress paying off the college to get her daughter into USC, what was the show/movie where the parents were discussing this scenario and the school said it would require the donation of an international airport to get their kid enrolled in that school?
  2. What Did You Have for Dinner?

    Beef and Broccoli.....sans the broccoli. I'm saying I substituted pork for the beef but that's what happens when you grab it off the shelf at the store without the glasses on. It did seem to have lower sodium as a result. Served over rice (from the Chinese grocery store)
  3. What diecast did you get today?

    Dusty and missing the passenger side exhaust from the muffler back, but it was $2.
  4. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Had not seen one in a long time. $10 open, but complete
  5. What Irked You Today?

    The wife and I went to grab dinner an event after out youngest son's school event (he went with the mother in law). We hadn't been to Gold Star Chili in a while so we went up the road only to find the place has been gutted inside (don't know if it's a remodel or a rebrand). So we went to Burger King next door. Waiting for the guy at the register complete his order, we see a sign on the register that they are out of chicken, onions and tomatoes. With half the menu wiped out, we turned and went back down the road to Popeye's chicken. The older lady waiting on the person in front of us rang up the guys order (thought he wanted an eight piece, not the number 8). He caught the error as he looked at his receipt so she voided the order. Okay, but she still didn't process the order for the #8! One last try we went to Taco Bell and it was okay at best.
  6. The only info on the ID card is what's in the picture. I was over at the swap meet building when they closed the display area for judging so I didn't get to go back over.
  7. As seen on the contest table in Columbus, OH yesterday. No builder name or details on the sheet. Didn't stay around after the judging (heavy storms forecasted for the drive home)
  8. Dream Time: What cars would you like to see modeled?

    I know Jimmy Flintstone makes one of the Revell Cadillac CTS but I want the Pontiac version.
  9. Just because my car has the bun warmers didn't mean I wanted to have to use them into Spring!!
  10. What Pleased You Today!

    HR sent out the pic of dropping off the six contractor sized trash bags of these little bags. It takes a 1,000 bags to make one mats and apparently the donation was enough to make at least a dozen mats. It was one of those odd moments where you think 'wow' but also the realization that we're serious packrats we donated THAT many bags in just one month of accumulating them!
  11. What did you see on the road today?

    Crosley wagon. I remember these were built narrow enough to be shipped in boxcars, but you don't realize how narrow they are until you see it directly behind a Mazda 3 on the trailer ahead of it.
  12. What Pleased You Today!

    I'm on the committee at the office for giving back to the community. One of the new additions for this year saw a flier for a local organization that takes the plastic grocery bags and makes mats for homeless and they are distributed locally. A box was placed in the office outside the first floor break/vending area. I saw the lady who suggested this and told her I know it's been emptied several times, but then she shared....she's empties the 4'x2'x'2 box EIGHT times. Wow......I know we all have that stash of bags, but when asking 130 people of mostly young people, I didn't expect that! We're collecting them through tomorrow (it was available all month)
  13. What did you see on the road today?

    Cut that corner JUSTA but short......
  14. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Good catch! I reached out tonight and will circle back with him tomorrow night.
  15. Let me check the directions tomorrow night. I bought a sealed inside edition of this kit today.
