I have all but quit listening to WKNR. As BB stated, they are pretty much one big talking advertisement anymore and basically, Bruce Hooley is a tool. I usually try to catch Dustin Fox on 92.3 The Fan if I'm listening to sports talk radio.

What, no Windows ME? :-)  I think I have had all of the versions including NT at some point or other. I have a spare HD I might pop in and give 10 a shot on that.

Hmmmm.....I bought my son a brand new car last year that he drove around campus. Nobody ever questioned where he got it. Those tweets directed at Zeke are just wrong. In my case 1 of the reasons were purley selfish as I did not want to make the round trip to have to pick him up and take him home while trying to work full time and maintain a household. This way he could come home whenever he wanted and I could spend more quality time with him. BTW, I only live 2 1/2 hrs away. Zekes family were probably spending most of their visiting time with him driving back and forth and that just stinks.

My son's roommate went to OSU on the GI Bill. He didn't seem to think it was a difficult process. He joined the Marines right out of high school and did a tour in Iraq, came back and went to OSU. He even studied abroad in Japan for a year. Good luck!

I'm so sorry for your loss. That is truly the worst part about having a pet when you lose one. I've said a couple times myself "Never again" it hurts too much. However, I always do because the joy and unconditional love they bring on a daily basis far exceeds the hurt. You gave her a happy life in a loving home and you will have good memories to hang onto.

About two weeks ago I was at a smoke/vape shop in North Olmstead. I walked in and there were only 3 of us there. One of them was the largest man I had ever seen. The owner was taking care of him and as I stood behind him in line, I kept thinking  I know him from somewhere. I am only 5 foot 3 (female) and literally came up to his armpits. As I stood behind him looking at his massive frame and huge shoes, my eyes went to his tattoos. Down the right arm was a tattoo that read "Big Perk" That was my Ahh ha moment and realized it was Kendrick Perkins of the Cavs.

We used to take our son there when he was little. They had a deal that on Wednesdays kids only had to pay what they wieghed a penny a pound. Lol

My father was a police officer then and had to work the Kent State riots. At the time, my parents were in their 20's. Dad had just been out of the military for about a year at that point. My aunt (His sister) was a student there. I remember him telling me that many of the rioters were not even students. They were people from other areas and out of state. Some of the protesters were taking Dixie cups and filling them with wet cement and would put a railroad tie in them until they hardened and then were throwing them off of the roofs of buildings at the cops and nations guardsmen. It was a very scary/messy situation all around.

This thread was perfect timing for me. Just last night I contacted WOW to switch from ATT Uverse internet. I just did a speed test and am pulling 21.02 mbps down and 1.90 up. I could live with that except in the evenings when there are several devices connected it slows way down. I pay about $38.00 for that.

WOW will be 30mbps down and 3 up for $30.00 so slightly faster speeds for $8.00 less.

I live in Berea and am pretty lucky to have the option of TW, WOW or Uverse. Please comment if you have any experience bad or good with WOW you could share.

First of all here is an upvote for having the foresight to not post this comment in the commitment thread. I hate when people do that knowing these kids will read this and probably share it with friends and such. 

2nd - I agree with you :-)

I don't think it was a "function of football players from different teams" 2 of those guys were Barkers teammates who never even came to his aid or stood up for him.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. It's the one part about life that just totally sucks and we all have to face it at some point in our lives. Sounds like your mom was a terrific person and you will no doubt think of her with very fond memories daily. I wish peace and blessings for you and your family.

Speaker phones! I'm trying to concentrate on what I'm doing. I do not want to hear every one of your conversations.

I lived in Bermuda when I was a child. My dad was in the Air Force and we were stationed there. Beautiful and I would love to go back.

Comment 01 Mar 2015

I agree with you but I can personally say that I have never dropped a cell phone. (Hopefully no jinx) If I was a male I would probably be more worried about it but I carry a purse and it has a bit more protection than in a pocket.

"Miserable pig fuckers" LOL This is one of the many reasons I love you Ramzy!

I carry 2 phones and a pager (yes I know but hospitals still use them) One is a company issued iPhone, the other is a Samsung galaxy S4. I prefer my Samsung and will be trading it in soon for either the Galaxy Note 4 or the Note Edge. I make it a point to try and not get my phone out when I'm out to dinner or around others unless I absolutely have to.

My son just graduated last Aug from tOSU. His debt is $77,000.00 it equates to almost $1,000.00 a month.

personally, if he has no shot a the pros, I would steer him the way of least amount of debt possible.
