  1. Good to have you back! My MIL just left to return to the east bay area, and we talked a bit about politics while she was here. She entered the conversation with the expectation that since I live in VA I voted for Trump. When I told her point blank I didn't vote for him, it ended the conversation. It's like she built up an offensive to "change my mind" and lost steam when she didn't need to.
  2. Nowadays, that is a BIG ask. Documenting every stupid thing you do and posting it for permanent archiving on the Internet.
  3. The lead we care about is the #2 seed: Nationals -- Cubs 8.5 Brewers 10 Cardinals 11
  4. Gillespie has a chance to win if he doesn't alienate the entirety of NOVA. If he stays silent, NOVA will go to Northam by bigger numbers than Gillespie will be able to overcome.
  5. Lee was a good enough tactician he was offered the opportunity to lead the Union Army in the Civil War. Let's not allow facts to be lost in a good story. Disparaging Lee for the man he was is fair, rewriting history to fit into that disparagement adds nothing. He was a brilliant military mind, and a horrible human being. Those things can both be true, and are. See Germany in WW2. There should be zero monuments to Confederate generals standing anywhere in the public sphere. There should be markers in Civil War cemeteries to commemorate the dead Confederate soldiers, as they fell in battle (for the losing side). Naming schools after influential Americans should not be abolished. Schools should teach about the Confederacy, and the war, and the reasons for the war, and all the bad things that happened after the war. History is very important. Now, those massive stars and bars flying on I95, I81, and I64 in Virginia? Absolutely pathetic. I95: I81: I64: There is no reason to fly that big of a flag on your property other than to piss people off. You built the flagpole tall enough that trees won't obscure the flag. http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/346834-dem-va-gubernatorial-candidate-calls-for-removal-of-confederate-statues Your move, Gillespie...
  6. From KettlePizza (https://www.kettlepizza.com/ingredient/instant-yeast/) the 1-2-3 Neapolitan. Key is Type "00" or Chef's flour. Makes dough you can stretch and see light through, but won't break. Big bubbles, and thin crust.
  7. Just bought a new Weber Kettle to be my dedicated pizza grill. Best homemade pizza I have ever had, hands down. Gonna be a weekly thing on the patio.
  8. ****. He's done. Season's done.
  9. For the first time in my 40 years of life, I am embarrassed to be a Virginian. When I finish my degree, I will have to seek employment elsewhere. Such a sad day. The fact that that there was not a swift, violent response by police pisses me off. I'm sorry...

  12. I just bought a 10 jersey a couple months ago....for $6.99. The feelings from that season are totally worth $6.99.
  13. Over the air antenna will get you plenty of channels. Me and my cousin use that method all the time in the tailgate park n walk lot off Barlowe. 42" TV plugged into the back of his SUV and the OTA antenna attached to the roof. 4, 5, 7, 9, 13 (WJZ in Baltimore-CBS), 20, 26, 32, 50, 53, 56, 66 and a bunch of other channels, including the 4-1, 4-2, 4-3, 4-4 digital channels associated with each of the main 4, 5, 7, & 9 channels.
  14. It's Capital Centre Now, of course, it's Capital One Arena. BOOOOOOOOO
