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.

I missed this entire thread until last night. As I was reading it, my heart was breaking for 618 while at the same time filled with hope and joy that there are so many good caring people here at 11W.

618, I hope you are doing well and will seek someone out who will help you that you feel safe with. Take some time, concentrate just on you and your needs for awhile.

As for the rest of you. I tried to upvote everyone in this thread. If I missed some of you my apologies.

You all showed why Buckeye Nation is the best.

Comment 22 Feb 2015

I have the GS4 and have not received the update. I am due for a new phone soon and have been going between the Note 4 and the Note Edge (leaning to the edge) how do you like your Note 4?

Comment 08 Feb 2015

Right now I would have to go with Matthew Burrell. Seems like a great kid. Always positive and happy. Seems to have a great sense of humor and people seem to love being around him.

I do not know a lot about Tim Beck but Ohio State will always get better recruits than Nebraska. It starts there, so he will instantly have more to work with than he did at Nebraska.

Comment 21 Nov 2014

I also got the bourbon, cinnamon, and vanilla beans today. I just need to get the apples.

Since this will be a gift for someone, I think I'm going to pour the bourbon into a large mouth glass container I have so I will not have to worry about the displaced bourbon. After it's done, i can easily take out the apples and funnel the bourbon back into its original bottle. Can't wait!

Thanks Ramzy!!

Thank you so much for posting this. We all get so busy just trying to live our lives that we often take for granted the things that we should hold most valuable. My prayer to this young man and hoping for a miracle that his baby survives. 

*edit - I just found the story and the baby did not survive. So heartbreaking.

Happy Birthday! Let's hope for an even better night.
