I was in 4 states this weekend and pooped in all four of them! :mrgreen:

Pooped at home in Michigan a couple of hours after eating at Taco Bell early Saturday morning.
Saturday afternoon I left my mark in the Lake Forest, IL toll oasis on I-94.
Early Sunday around midnight I pooped at the Sheraton in Brookfield, WI (Milwaukee)
Then earlier this evening I pooped in Chesterton, IN at the KFC/A&W.

You might think the glass is half full
And you might think the glass is half empty
But engineers know the glass is two times as large as it needs to be
Politicians, on the other hand, have assured me, that the glass would be more empty if the opposition were in charge
While surrealists think that the glass is half of a slowly rotting lemon
And physicists, well they happen to know that you can never know how much water is in the glass, because just by measuring it you've changed the outcome

I nominate the word "Peavine" for a one-year filter ban from this board. Let's make it "the dead line" or "NS' Future Superhighway"

I second the motion. All those in favor say "Peavine"

It's July, so it's safe to say it was! :)

But in just a little less than 3 months, the potential for snow returns to Southern Michigan.

But what if I'm giving directions to the Pokagon Township Hall in Cass Co. MI on Peavine St.? :twisted: :mrgreen:

I heard awhile back that the ethanol plant in South Bend was back in operation. Currently, I am in South Bend and my nose seems to be confirming this. At one time, the smell from this was so strong you could smell it up in Benton Harbor, MI, especially in the winter.

AARR needs to learn how to count! I know this because he put "2 B I" in the Chatbox, when he was really #6.

Silly man. Pretty soon his username will have to change to "AARP"
