Not in here, mister! This is a Mercedes!
If it's under the human skin, wouldn't that make it an endoskeleton?
Geez, come on man! ;-)
I wouldn't necessarily tie it to government either, Furious. I think part of the problem (for mid-west states) is climate, especially around the winter time. States that have great weather all year round will contain - generally speaking, of course - a more active population.
When I was living in Portland, I could go for a run outside during my lunch year-round. Sure it might be raining a little in February, but the temperature would be in the 40's. Now that I moved back to Ohio, do you think I really want to go running outside when it's 10 degrees and there's a foot of snow on the ground?
You said it, Baroclinicity! Nice way to start the weekend! (Kinda makes up for the Baker commitment to UF...)
Totally agree, the 101 is an amazing drive. Don't forget about Astoria, though. The bridges and the views of the mouth of the Columbia River are amazing, not to mention some fantastic places to eat.
I really loved Tillamook also. (The creamery has amazing ice cream.) We drove through there on our way to Rockaway Beach, which is another one of my favorites. The only downside of Tillamook was the constant manure smell. Gotta love dairy country! haha
For a great steak, don't forget about
El Gouge-o's El Gaucho's!
For a great spot at the coast, we loved to take the family to Seaside (great shops and beautiful beach.) What was your favorite location on the coast, Oregonian?
A personal favorite of mine:
Clockwise from left:
...and that may well be the case, but I'd never think to order it, because I have no idea what a bramble berry crisp is
AndyVance, for some reason your quote reminded me of the Crunchy Frog sketch (Monty Python, of course...):
Portland is the same way. Horrible weather. Rainy and cloudy all the time. Who would ever want to live there? haha :)
My Dad made the same recipe when I was growing up (it's right out of the Betty Crocker recipe book), with the only difference being that my Dad cut out the walnuts and the coconuts. We absolutely loved them!
That picture from the road to Mt St Helens is pretty freaky!
The drive along highway to Mt St Helens is absolutely gorgeous, and I suggest everyone - if they have the opportunity - to make that drive. There are 3 different places along the road where you can pull off and take spectacular pictures of Mt St Helens in the distance. The highway literally ends at the Johnston Ridge Observatory, where you have a view *into* the crater of the volcano (you can see the new growth that has been forming since the eruption.)
Even more confirmation :)
While it's disappointing that he wasn't able to be successful at Ohio State, it is great to see him do well at Duquesne.
Best site in the land!!!!
Best *Damn* Site in the Land!!! There, corrected it for ya. ;-)
I couldn't agree more, BuckeyeJ! Huge thank you to all the people who keep this site humming as beautifully as a Ferrari.
The map of where football players come from looks, in essence, similar to a basic map of the largest cities in the US (with the exception of Miami, which produces a larger volume of football players per capita). Is the explanation really as simple as "more football players come from areas containing larger populations"?
Unky, I believe it means that the balance of players are still uncommitted?
Love your profile pic, Scarlet. I've never tried lutefisk, but since a friend of mine warned me about what it really was, I probably never will! (***shudders***) :-)
