No kidding... The first time I realized I was getting old was when I heard the 80's hair bands being played on the classic rock stations. That sucked.

Yeah. I work in an office where we play a radio station that is one new song followed by one old song. I know 90% of the old stuff and like 30% of the new stuff. I'm OLD.

At least I've been spared that, so far... It's not far away, though.

I'm hoping for a big lottery win.
$350 Million or $154 Million... either would be nice.

I had to look it up... I couldn't find anything on it so I'm forced to call shenanigans. The Spork reigns supreme.

In the macro sense, hell yeah... And in my opinion, Baltika ranks very near the top of the list.

I'm Hoping to be drinkin' a pint or two (or 6 or 8!) of Guinness in late September! That's when I'm Hoping to be back in Ireland for 14/15 days. :thumleft: :mrgreen:
