    If you run the table in the knockout pool, you'll have a couple freebies. May be able to upgrade?

  5. Early influences

    I want to add that the song from this period that definitely had the most impact on me was Harry Chapin's "Cats in the Cradle". That song greatly influenced my life as a parent. I swore that I would never rue watching my kids grow up and have traded opportunities that would have caused me to do so because time together and memories are far more important than money. Sorry for getting on the soap box.
  6. Early influences

    I thought this would be an interesting topic. I've always believed, at least in my experience, that most deadheads have been into music from an early age. What are your early influences? I, like I suspect most, first got started listening to what their parents listened to. My dad was not big into music, but my mom was, which was fortunate because she was the one that pretty much drove me everywhere and most of my earliest connection was listening to the radio in the car. The other early outlet was my parents records, which I would listen to whenever possible. I was born in the late sixties, so my early memories are in the early seventies period and I was into music very early. My earliest memories and some of my favorites even today are listening to Jim Croce, Cat Stevens, Simon and Garfunkel, Carol King, James Taylor and of course Dobie Gray ( Who didn't love drift away?) because that was what I was hearing from mom's car radio. I also remember listening to Buddy Holly and Elvis records on the old turntable. These are some of my most vivid memories even today although I was only very young. Unfortunately the Dead weren't played on mom's station How about you?
  7. Your 2017

    Congrats on the big year. I made Jubilee, Springfield and a smattering of others, but that's about it. Youngest is now in high school so maybe I have a big year coming up in s few years, one can hope
  8. Preseason CFB Playoff picks

    There were three obvious choices. All of the candidates for the fourth spot had flaws. I'm disappointed Ohio state didn't get in, but I'm fine with it. We beat Michigan (again), won the big ten championship and get to play the Pac 12 champs in the Rose er Cotton Bowl

  12. Preseason CFB Playoff picks

    It's been a bit of a troubling season, but tOSU beat the team up north today so all is well. A win next week and a big ten championship and we'll see how it plays out. A win by the cocks tonight would help.

  14. "I hate a Roman named Status Quo! Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day and every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that, shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass". Granger's grandpa, Bradbury
  15. Preseason CFB Playoff picks

    Both Auburn and Wisconsin are in if they win out, lose and they are out. The only chance for Ohio state is to win out in impressive fashion, have Alabama run the table and have Oklahoma run the table. Not as far fetched as it seemed a week ago.
