Went to Indiana and one of my kids was on athletic scholarship at Iowa. But having lived in Columbus near campus for about 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 in Mumbai on business and one day they brought in Domino's for a working lunch. Something similar to Chicken Tikka was on it.  Wasn't bad, but  I found it depressing - one of the oldest and culture-rich countries in the world and we're having localized American chain store pizza. Later that trip while in Pune I saw a sign that said "Coming Soon! Papa John's". Sad.

Nice article. Weird list.

One of my good friends from college was the daughter of an Air Force B24 bomber pilot who flew his very first combat mission over Normandy on D-Day.  He flew another 15 or so missions and was shot down later that Summer.  Served the rest of the war in a German POW camp.  I read an interview he gave to a local newspaper where he said that while he and other prisoners were being shipped back to a camp in Germany, their train was attacked by their Air Force colleagues who were actively trying to destroy German trains - of course without any way to know the cargo.  He died just a few months ago, and I know this anniversary would have been special to the entire family.

Someone probably hit a wrong key and accidentally sent you Form Letter 27-H with the "partial government shutdown" explanation instead of Form Letter 6-B with the "we're getting around to it, just chillax" explanation.

Just finished watching. Great series. I didn't see Bran taking over for Gorbachev coming. Whoa! 

Seriously, there were a lot of great lines, including the one about the cost of lies above.  One of my favorites was in an early episode when Gorbo says "Our power comes from the perception that we have power". Some would say that's still true.

Watched 3 episodes to date and have been very impressed. Engaging work.

"Scarlet Notification" - sorry, I came here thinking this was some sort of Nathaniel Hawthorne reference and associated discussion. Oops.

A few years ago someone used 11w to drum up interest in a local prospect

The implication of this statement is that there are people that think the coaching staff reads 11W threads to discover prospects that have been missed through the many regular channels (camps, rating services, HS coaches, tape coming unsolicited in the mail, etc.). 

"Hey Coach Day!  I read about this kid on 11W, let's check him out"

I'm having a hard time processing that.

+1 on cooking. A lot of people find it a chore, but I find it can be very relaxing and a chance to be creative and focus on something else.
