Long's was bought out by Barnes and Noble after the kids took over the bookstore when their father and mother died.  I worked there from 2000-2004 until I graduated.  Once it was bought out by B&N it was never the same as it was during its prime years under the Long's ownership.  It is too bad the building has to go as it was an iconic landmark at OSU for me and many others, but it was also too bad the children of Mr and Mrs Long decided to sell the family business to make a $.

I use parafin wax in my chocolate (its my grandparents recipe), apparently it helps adhere better to the peanut butter balls... but as for freezing them and eating them... HELL YES!

I am still baffled at how Winston can continue to get away with everything he has... he got more in trouble from his university for getting on a table and yelling and obscenity than he has for potential sexual assault, stealing, and selling his likeness and/or autograph for money... and that his head coach is standing up for him and making him sound like a top notch human being baffles me even more

It changed companies... Ralston Purina used to make it and then it became General Mills when Ralston sold all of their name brand cereals a while back... my Dad used to work for Ralston so we used to eat that stuff all the time

Beautifully written, and said.. it reminds me of going to games with my dad back in the 80's and 90's and seeing him there... he is a true Ohio State fan in all sense of the word unlike the two guys who like to get on TV every chance they get claiming to be Ohio State fans.

I have worked at many bookstores (including Long's on High Street and the one in Central Classroom) before moving on to bigger and better things.  The textbook industry is a dying breed.  Your better off renting, borrowing, using an old edition, going to the library, or not even using a book at this point.  

Custom textbooks are the same, they are usually just chapters of the regular textbook taken out to lessen the cost.  Well if you can find the old edition of that textbook online for way cheaper, then no need to buy the custom book.  Also the professors get a cut of the deal when they make a custom book, so thats why you see so many going that way.

My advice has always been, go to class first, see how much the text will actually be used and then make a judgement call, buy it if its absolutely necessary, rent it or get an old edition if money is the issue, or don't buy it if there is absolutely no need for it.  

I was a history major and most of the books I needed were in the library, so i went that route, rarely ever did I buy a textbook and I even worked at the bookstore and got a discount.

Holy Buckeye for sure... but that 05 Michigan game will always stand out... and who can forget baby face Joe Germaine to DBoston for the win against Az St.  

Also in 2002.. we were behind to Illinois in the 3rd.. Krenzel to Jenkins to take the lead then FG's exchanged late and the win in OT... I was there and it was cold and miserable but it made it all worth in when we took down Miami
