Re: No longer want to be a member

Like a few others here, it plants a row in the BB garden by posting a antagonistic topic, and tends it regularly by seeding with its own posts (sometimes for long stretches - exclusively), which pop it to the top of the list, and grow the row. However, it needs ensure the row is 'straight'. If a wee...

Re: Old School 7&4

Years ago, 7&4 had an anchor named Johnny Williams. He used to swat flies while reading the news. I could swear I remember a Johnny Williams on WGTU (29) back in the mid 70's. Would write the first letter of every word in his forecast haphazardly across a map of the lower peninsula on the wall. Did...

Re: New set for 7&4?

New set went live this week. So did a rather distracting continuous 3-line ticker at the bottom of the screen. Many elements appear to be higher resolution, so there must have been many changes 'under the hood' as well. They certainly have much more space between the humans than they have had the pa...

Re: LMFAO at Kmart!!!!

A friend purportedly in the know told me that timing in store closing has more to do with how much time is left on the lease, rather than performance of the store. It also sounded as if some of those leases had been signed for rather extreme lengths of time (50+ years).

Re: 9 & 10's "forecaster"

I saw someone named Haleigh Vaughn referred to as 'forecaster', during last weekend's newscasts. Nothing on brewvine & 10's website regarding her being a part of the wx team at that time, and she looks young enough to still be in school. Presentation was quite good!

Still shows up on Today occasionally.

Last I knew he was hosting Sunday Today on NBC and Morning Joe on MSNBC...

Spec's on the net are that he may be a contender for ML replacement.

Re: Because Common Sense is Not Common

Nope. Some people in a turn-only lane don't realize that it is a turn-only lane and abort at the last minute. Assumption is not a good decision tree when driving a weapon. It's lazy. The whole "I don't have to signal if no one is within close proximity" argument is dangerous at best. Like not coming...

It's all over but the reminiscing for KMart. "Last Christmas"...

The local store here has been dwindling inventory for 2 years, and back-filling with some Sears product.

Re: And Who Thought This One Up?

I'm sticking with Trulicity. It has worked well for me. Glad to hear. That product's ads seem to be more along the lines of the traditional 'here's what it can do, who it's for, and 'here are the side effects'' type. It's also only for T2's, where the options are seemingly more varied, there's more...

Re: And Who Thought This One Up?

It doesn't have to be good, or represent the product in a logical manner. It just has to stick in your mind when the time comes to discuss it with your Dr., and between the repetition and familiar background music, perhaps it does that well enough for the mfg. As a T1 on the competing med, I can tel...

...Tigers thought they had a deal earlier, but Verlander vetoed the trade at that time, hoping his first choice of teams, the Cubs, would make an offer. But then, he changed his mind and agreed to go to Houston.
Good for JV... 2 months later, he's got a ring.
