<quoted text>Good morning mighty Quinn. What a good game with the 109 yard return. It looked like a blow out early but was very close at the end :)
San Fran must have made a tremendous comeback ---- albeit not enough ---- because by the time I turned in for the night it was like 34-3.

Hope you won your bets. Everyone I spoke with had their money on San Fran :(

Hey Lady Grace...
I just copy/pasted this from Yahoo.. thought you might like reading it if you haven't seen it...
I'm Betting you're glad You are a Vegetarian....
I never liked Burger King they add some kind of smoke flavoring to their burgers that leaves and aftertaste.. well at least that is how it tasted and affected me..

DUBLIN (Reuters)- Burgers containing horse DNA have been discovered at a second plant in Ireland, the country's agriculture department said on Monday, again pointing the finger at Poland as the country of origin for the raw materials.

Major food companies like Tesco and Burger King last month found that beef products supplied by an Irish firm contained horse DNA, a scandal that has hit retailers with a wave of bad publicity and left Ireland's 2 billion euro ($2.7 billion) beef industry reeling.

Results of tests on a Polish meat ingredient at Ireland's Rangeland Foods, a supplier of frozen burgers to restaurants, caterers and pubs including local fast food chain Supermac's, contained 75 percent horse DNA, the agriculture department in a statement.

It said Rangeland has suspended production pending the outcome of an investigation and that the company has indicated that none of the products, which were imported through a meat trader based in Ireland, had entered the food chain.

Rangeland, based in the northern county of Monaghan, exports burgers to Britain, Sweden, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Greece and Cyprus.

The minister of agriculture has also asked the police to join in the investigation, the department added.

The first supplier to be implicated, Silvercrest - a subsidiary of Europe's largest beef exporter ABP Foods - has lost its contract to supply both Tesco and Burger King with burgers.

Burger King, one of the most popular fast-food chains in Britain and Ireland, said last week that its affected burgers never reached any eateries. Tesco withdrew a number of products from its shelves, including one sample where horse meat accounted for about 29 percent of content.

Smaller retail chains Aldi, Lidl and Iceland have also sold beef products found to contain horse DNA.

Poland's veterinary authority found no signs of horse meat in samples from five slaughterhouses that were sending beef to Ireland and is awaiting results from the sixth, state news agency PAP reported on Friday.

Food safety experts say horse DNA poses no added health risks to consumers, but the discovery has raised concerns about the food supply chain and the ability to trace meat ingredients.

Help me ... how does a country .... lose a king
I thought Richard was a legend
Didn't lose him - he was buried in Greyfriars monastery after his death at Bosworth Field in 1485. The monateries were dissolved in 1536-8, which meant that their buildings were robbed of the stone, amongst other things. Over time, other buildings went up on the site. Currently it's a municipal car park. Archaeologists have now discovered the site of the monastery and with it, the bones of Richard III.

Most of my pet peeves have to do with bad drivers ... like the guy who waits for the red light to turn green, they proceed forward 1/4 a car length, then turn on thier left turn signal ... leavin gyou stuck behind him until the light turns red adn you wait an entire cycle till the next green light.

Or people who drive slower than the speed limit ... at some point you have a chance to pass them, and they speed up so you can't pass them ...

Thanks so much for this DDR,
Yes, it has been very controversial over here..
we were talking about it here on El's K..
and some interesting views.

only today, another controversy has arisen
about the same thing!

Hope you are gently easing into Spring..
Bring back one of those lovely
GARDENS you did so well..

Life is sad,[for me just now] could do with the fragrance
of Spring flowers wafting around...

Love to all the ladies, and warmest wishes to all the gents....

My friend is v ill.. too rapidly, goin down hill,

we,[her friends]
have been visiting regular as we can, talking, wondering, crying...
everyone here knows how it is -
as we have all had similar experiences.
I understand that:

By way of light relief,

my son [who was home for 4 days] & I
went to see LINCOLN the movie..

Very good, certainly,
but waaay below the hype it has been
universally given -[in MY opinion]..

Having seen the two movies -

I'd rate "JANGO UNCHAINED"
STREETS ahead of LINCOLN,
in every way - as movies go -

then that's just ONE i
opinion .

All good greeting El, and to everyone in
the kitchen.

The weather & driving to work yesterday was so dangerous --- snow, ice & low visibility ---- the normal speed limit would have been too fast. If I was too slow feel free to go around me instead of riding my back bumper.

I got to work without hitting anyone or anyone hitting me.

Thanks sincerely, RM.

Just worried about my friend who is terminally ill..
Trying to 'fit' in to my thoughts,

Something that won't rest easily..
but -
as in all things

It will HAVE to.

Thanks again.

A sprinkle of snow in these parts
And ever so cold.

You can just pray Grace. And be strong for your friend
who is fortunate to have such good friends around her.
Let her go with an easy mind having made her Peace with God.
