    Default Bye Week Activities

    So how did everybody spend their first Sunday without a game this year?

    For all intents and purposes, we have another coming up this weekend since we play Monday.

    I did leaves and cleaned my gutters in the morn, then rode up to the North Hills for beer and wings in the afternoon.

    Hm....

    I can't really remember doing much besides website work. I know that yesterday i watched the games on tv and did website work pretty much the entire day. Saturday, I played a couple games of "sorry" with my daughter and loafed around. I was sick for most of Saturday, lost half of my voice.

    Took down the Halloween decorations. Mowed the lawn. Went to some Halloween stores to pick over the huge sales. Drank some PBR's. Enjoyed the nice fall day. Sunny yet cool. Checked out the neighbor in a white tank top with no bra cutting down some flowers that had died outside for a while. She had some major glass cutters going.

    All in all a great day.

    Dealt with Halloween stuff and consumed way too much of the chocolate the local kids didn't claim. Plus I turned a few MP3s into DTS WAVs, which involved a fair wedge of setting-chasing. Some of those old recordings that are un-remastered can get rough. Pushing them up from dubious quality MP3 to DTS can be a nerve-wracker.

    I cleaned the house and waited on my fiance and his brother while they watched the Packers/Vikings game. Listening to them scream at each other, ones a Packers fan, the other a Favre fan, was all the entertainment I needed. Then went and picked up the kiddos from my parent's house. Colored and read books with my daughter and watched my son make up his own karate moves. Pretty typical Sunday in my house. Oh, also had some potato skins at the bar before the game

I can't tell you how badly I wanted out of there." Denver rookie QB John Elway, on Jack Lambert, after Lambert and the Steelers knocked Elway out of his first game as a pro (1983).

    Well, Saturday was a lost day between the Halloween party I attended and the USC loss...



    On Sunday I attended the morning service to atone for my sins of the night before (Ha Ha!), then visited my fiance's sis down at the hospice center... After that, I just vegged and watched the various games with a few adult beverages... Mostly the "game mix" channel with all of them on 1 screen.

    During the afternoon games, I was in an Irish pub listening to traditional Irish music drinking Guinness with my wife. Yep, it's good to be on vacation.

    Most definitely am having a good time. Ireland is beautiful when the sun does shine. It seems like it will rain for about 15-20 minutes and then the sun peaks through. Never seen so much "green" here. The people are extremely friendly.

    The only downfall, we will be in Scotland for the Steelers-Denver game, so I might be drinking some highland single malt during the game (if I'm awake at 01:30).

    ... Question is: What airline did you fly?......

    Just picked-up a bottle of McClelland's Select Oak 10-yr old single malt....

    Nice weather in Wyoming Sunday, so drank alot of Ethiopian coffee and worked on the cars. Watched a couple football games on and off when I came inside for more coffee or just a break.

    Try Glenmorangie 10 and/or any of their "extra-matured range." Extremely good Single Malts, the 10 yr is nice and light...not too "peaty." The extra-matured range are 12yr juices aged 10 normally with the last two years finished in used sherry, port, or orsolo casks (depending on which one you get). Good deals (in OH) on all of them $10-15 off of them, not that I condone crossing state lines to purchase high proof spirits

    Ha Ha!.... Thanx for the info, but I got it for my dad (but I will keep your comments in mind for next time) when we get together for Turkey day.... I'm not a huge scotch man, but may sample it a bit... I am unfortunately quite pathetic in my routine of Rumplemintz and Select....

    ... As to the "state line" issue, I'll get some from "duty free" stuff while traveling, and still bring a boat-load of wine back from France. It's interesting as to what the "crew dec" allows...
