Depends on where you are at. If traveling north on Mound from south of 16 you're fucked and should consider going south on Mound to 15, then to Van Dyke. If traveling north on Mound from north of 16 you'll be fine.

I usually take Ryan because it's really difficult to get on NB Mound via the Michigan left out of our parking lot. When Mound gets bad, Ryan suffers.

Township fireworks last nice from my patio. The fireworks eventually set the field on fire.

Are forums going the way of the dodo bird?

Discovered this morning a sports forum I joined when it began in 2005 is closing at the end of the month. Forum founder is a good dude. Decided to move the forum to Facebook. It won't be the same.

Was at my desk a little after lunch.   Mild storm was rolling through the area.  No high winds and not much lightning.

Had been very quiet for quite a while, then BANG!  Lightning either hit the building or right next to it.  Startling as hell.  One of the loudest things I've ever heard.  You could feel it.  Was like a bomb went off.  Freaked the shit out of everyone in the office.

Unfortunately, it didn't knock the power out.  My screens didn't even blink.

I had a steadfast rule in college: date bartenders or waitresses but never turn them into girlfriends. To much shit happens in the restaurant/bar industry. No way you can find monogamy. Enjoy it.but don't marry it or get serious with it.

You're both right and wrong. I dated my bartender from Dooley's and could not believe the stories she'd tell about staff sleeping with other staff. It really was mind-blowing to me. I think I even joked with her, early on, that I wished I'd worked at one of the EL bars.
On the other hand, that same bartender made it clear on our first date that she only dates one guy at a time. She also made it clear that if the guy she's seeing cheats on her, she's done. I may not be too smart, but I figured that since she was at dinner with me, then I was the guy she was seeing at the time. I've been smart enough not to fuck it up, and at the end of August, it will be the 30th anniversary of our first date. Having come from a family where divorce is pretty common, I'm pretty happy for the tGreenWays.

Well done. But yeah, the stories she told you were very true. Every relationship I know/knew from that industry either became bad break ups or divorces. You found the keeper.

Taken out of context that could sound pretty psycho. I can just imagine you going to a restaurant, saying its for 2 and waiting at an empty table for the 29th time.

She told me this the other night. I'm really happy for you.

SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.
