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.

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.

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.

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.

B - I want them to know where it came from and also believe there is power in simplicity.

Comment 16 Sep 2014

I have to agree with you on the Dube. Been there a couple times and their menu is huge. Very good food at a reasonable price.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

Lady Buckeye here. Most of us just don't post much. ;-) 

Comment 14 Sep 2014

That is child abuse, plain and simple. He drew blood on that child! AP called it a "whoopin" I would call that a lashing. There is nothing a 4 year old child could do that would deserve something like that.

Comment 15 Aug 2014

Prayers out to you. You absolutely did the right thing in seeking help rather than suffer in silence. Major props and respect to you.

Comment 14 Aug 2014

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've had to do this a couple times myself and it is truly one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do. Some people may question if it's worth it as they grieve for the loss of their beloved pet. My answer is always yes. The amount of joy they bring you everyday will live on forever. Keep in mind always the great memories.

Actually at the time he tweeted about not coming to play school, he had a 3.0 GPA. It just got lost during the firestorm of that tweet. I really think he was just having one of those stressful moments and that tweet was just a horrible lapse in judgement that will live on and on. 

Comment 27 Jul 2014

While I agree with some of your points Arizona. I must respectfully disagree with a couple as well. 

I was born in Arkansas and most of my family still lives there. I've lived here well over 30 years now. You said "they still call anybody up north Yankees." They might, but do you realize how many times I see the words "hillbillies" "rednecks" and "ignorant" when referring to people from the south? Truth be told, I've actually met more "hillbillies" up north than I ever have down south. There are intelligent well educated people all over,  just as there are ignorant hillbillies. It is not a matter of your geographic location. 

Comment 11 Jul 2014

I will own up to it. I was pissed off the WAY he left. I felt like he slapped the fans in the face with the "decision"

After reading his letter today, I was actually moved. I think it was heartfelt and sincere. His return is good for Cleveland sports and for the local economy. That's what I care most about. 

Comment 05 Jul 2014

Pretty sure he will be off the team if all this is true. I find it really sad and feeling sorry for the kid. He had an older brother that was shot and killed. I thought he was working hard not to fall into the same traps.

He actually mentored one of my co-workers sons while he was still in H.S and by all standards seemed like a really good kid. I pray he is able to get his life together and find some sort of peace.
