    FYI, I went 11-5 on my picks this last week bringing my Pick-Em's record to 19-13.

    Mary Shannon was my polar opposite at 5-11, bringing her record to 15-17.

    I shall post my picks for this week later, once I have them.

    No one else watching NFL this year?

      Congrats on your choices last week, Coach JDizz! I'll try to redeem myself this week.

    Ok, not sure if this will work, but I uploaded some food pics from my recent trip.

      NOMNOMNOM. I'm diggin' the steak dish. Not the fish one, for some reason. Everything looks pretty good, too.

      The communal fish took some getting used to. You really wind up hoping that none of your party has Hep C or something. You also had to watch for bones, since they can be small and hard to find. Walked out very full though, and it was delish.

      The best meal though, was the Tonkatsu (Deep fried pork cutlet). What was really ncie there, was that i was the only person in the place, so one server mixed the salad, another the sauce and so on. Walked out realizing that I was born in the wrong country.

    Good morning! AleeD, glad you had a great birthday! Have to think about the cartoon character question for a bit.

    Last night one of the furries crossed the Rainbow Bridge. It was my only kitty, I adopted her many years ago and never knew her exact age, but best guess is she was between 16 and 18 years old. She's been fighting for almost two months, but was never in pain, kept eating/drinking but lost the fight yesterday. I know she's happy now, probably eating all the roast beef she wants (her former owner fed her only cold cuts so she went nuts if you had a deli sandwich in the house!).

    Have a good day, all.

    Good morning Happy Klatschers! Coffee's on, email read and now I'm ready to hit the ground running. Everybody should have a 2-day work week. This is awesome! I had a lovely birthday mini-vaca thanks to my sweet hubby plus I got a new avatar/moniker from the Klatschers. Cool.

    This new fold in the Klatscher family plot begs the question: what cartoon character do you think best represents each member ~_~ of our gang?
