Went to Indiana and one of my kids was on athletic scholarship at Iowa and another recently graduated OSU. Having lived in Columbus near campus for more than 20 years now I root for the Buckeyes the most (except when my daughter competed). I do love to cook - and not just BBQ.

I was at Costco last weekend and their toilet paper was in short supply.  I felt embarrassed buying it and even had to tell the checkout lady - but we are really out at home!  (which was true).   

The run on bottled water is a mystery.  The same checkout lady and I were wondering if people thought water stations would become compromised as can happen when there are earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, etc.

So, while UM may have a good number of invites none of them are the sort of prospects Young & Okudah are.  The same with last year's guys.  UM is just not getting those first round guys enough

But isn't it reasonable that after 4 years, outside of measurables, they would be significantly better ?  Both Young and Okudah benefited from coaching.  Shouldn't UM fans expect (demand) the same?

The one bit of positive news in all of this is that thankfully the fatality rate seems to be much lower than the flu.

Given that the CDC estimates that >29 million cases of the "regular flu" have caused the death of 16,000 this season alone, it makes sense to pay attention to that.  Get those flu shots folks!

I have Ally Bank accounts and love it.  It was originally suggested to me by my financial adviser.  We sold a house and had a lot of cash to park while we lived in an apartment and were looking for a lot on which to build.  They have a great  "No-Penalty CD" that also pays a significantly better interest rate than regular bank CD's.  They have 11 month terms and you can liquidate them after only six *days*, as the name implies, without any penalty.  You still got all accrued interest.  So I purchased several of them and could liquidate them as needed to pay for our lot, construction loan etc.  Was able to easily transfer to our brick and mortar bank (PNC) in about 24 hours.

They have all the usual debit/credit cards, checks, bill pay type stuff, but that was not interesting to us.   Phone customer service was very good.
