      Uhm...January 1 is 2014...
      But to be honest, mj is not my thing...and if I hear one more "rocky mountain high" joke, I'm going to take a life...

        Sorry, meant *later* in 2014. And yeah, not my thing either. Just thought it was interesting.

          My guess is that it will be a non-event, though I've been wrong before. Not sure many people will start the habit if they've not picked it up previously.

          I wholeheartedly support the legalizing of an organic substance that is less harmful & addictive than booze. Sadly that's not going to change any corporate factions anytime soon. Until THAT happens, those of us in manufacturing who want to keep their jobs will have to continue to abide by da man's rules and abstain.

          Not to politicize a food blog, but in some ways, I am very much a libertarian...go ahead and smoke crab claws if that does it for you...

    Good morning Saturday Klatschers! Whew! After a very long nite, RC finally learned his lesson. Thing is, he can't seem to stop smiling ... 'magine that. ~_~

    • RC@AleeD®

      Whew! is right. Yes, I learned a thing or three. After I crawled up from the dungeon, I felt sooooo much better than when I was led down. That smile? Ain't goin' away any time soon:)

    Happy Friday, everyone! I don't know about all of you, but all my days are mixed up this week. Thursday felt like Monday, etc. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

    TGIF–TGIF….Wait a minute, It's the last Friday of 2013 !! Guess we better make it a good one. My Footyball picks for this weekend are--Drum Roll plz….Broncos, Cardinals,'Da Bears and Eagles. And just to make everyone feel better on the East coast…( I can't believe I'm saying this ) The Giants.
    Eat 'Mo Beef and enjoy your weekend.

    Hope everyone's Christmas was as nice as mine. Not to change the subject, BUT...lots of trolls over on the McDonald's Website story. I would like to feel sorry for or pity them, but they make me SO MAD. And, by the way, how the person in the photo for that story can put food in their mouth with those filthy hands and disgustingly dirty fingernails is beyond me!

    OK, that's out...feeling better now.

    Good morning one and all, and peace on earth to all! Many Happy Returns to our own Ms. Grammar!

    How is everyone doing today? Looks like brother JDizz got an early present...

    • RichardHead@Truth

      Merry Christmas,Bro…..Here's a vision for Everyones Christmas Eve enjoyment-I'm Twerking and Wassailing at the same time. They said it couldn't be done….HA!!! As for Jdizz and his early Christmas present…I have 4 Fresh cow patties wrapped in a Tony Romo jersey, ready to be lit on his front porch. That's the only QB that the niners will take down in the playoffs. Wipe your feet and enjoy the playoffs without them.

        Yeay, boy! Let's see if I can post. Nothing seems to work today.

        NINERS! Good way to send off Candlestick

          I agree. The end of an era and a great way to say goodbye to an icon.

      Thanks everyone!! I had a blast! Got me a furry for my new place. It completes the place and feels like home! My home! She's a 4-year old rescue Silver Tabby that I've named Sophie!

    Rumor has it that Tony Romo is OUT vs The Eagles on Sunday.

    December 23, 2013 at 5:16 pm |
  13. RC

    Wow. Talk about humbling. I think the 'Hawks have the intestinal fortitude to bounce back from their loss to the 'Cards, but that was the worst showing in 2 years. I think the NFC West is about to get VERY interesting!

    December 23, 2013 at 3:06 pm |
  14. Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

    And with that, the NFC West is up for grabs and possible that three of the four teams make the playoffs.

    Final game at Candlestick before moving into Levi Stadium next season, where Super Bowl 50 will be played in the next year or two. Can't remember which one it is, lol.

    Niners VS Falcons 8:30pm EST on ESPN, be there!

    Good morning, everyone! Up early once again on calls. I hope everyone had a good weekend and finished their shopping in time to enjoy some quiet.

      Good Morning--And a Christmas Miracle happened for Eli and Tony yesterday. Not so much for the SeaBirds against the RedBirds. Stay Safe and Warm Everybody.
