Agreed about the guitar playing. If you like that check out his rendition of classical gas. I always liked Claptons version but Glen is right up there too. Here is a link. Sorry I can't embed https://youtu.be/V4Ga67EDrKI

I would suggest going into Berea and eating at Grindstone Tap House. Only about 2 or 3 miles from the IX center. Closer yet is Berea Union Depot. Which is kind of cool as it used to be a Train car. http://www.bereadepot.com/about.html

Here are some details that are coming out now. http://www.startribune.com/sex-assault-allegations-triggered-suspension-of-gophers-football-players/406564806/

"At some point, they began having sex. The police report said “she doesn’t have a recall about how the sex acts started.”

After Djam, others followed. She told police she saw a line of men waiting to take turns.

“I was removing myself from my mind and my body to help myself from the pain and experience going on,” she testified.

She estimated there were at least a dozen men. “I was shoving people off of me,” she testified. “They kept ignoring my pleas for help. Anything I said they laughed. They tried to cheer people on.”

I went to see Gregg Allman and Marshall Tucker Band at the Front Row Theater. We were all fans of Marshall Tucker and were mainly going to see them. We were only casual fans of Gregg Allman. They opened for Gregg Allman and were horrible. Pretty sure they spent too much time trying to keep up with Gregg and his partying, they did not even know where they were and sounded like it as well. Very disappointed.

Gregg took the stage and put on one of the best shows I've seen. We were blown away. He sat at his grand piano and when he wasn't singing he sucked on a lemon wedge. Totally professional the who time.

If words alone could make this all go away, I would give you all of the words that I have. 

I will pray hard for you and your family. Thank you for your service to this great Country.

I do watch it. Congratulations to your brother. That is huge national exposure for him.

Scouts and draft gurus talk about Hackenburg being a first round draft pick based solely on the intangibles because they surely can't be basing it on play. I would take Cardale over him any day of the week. 

I really have to believe this team will improve each week and by the end of the season we will be wondering why we were ever worried. Much like last year.....and the year before that.

1 Very spoiled Shihtzu named Sam. He is the most amazing lovable dog I've ever had.

2 rescue cats 

a saltwater aquarium. This is my second go around with saltwater and am ready to give it up. I've had this one about 7 years now and it's just so much work and not cheap! Don't know what I was thinking. Lol

Mike, I can totally relate to what you are going through. Everything you are feeling is completely normal. I went through a very similar thing about 10 years ago. I had worked for the same company for 20 years and like you, thought I would probably retire from there. 

They decided they would outsource my department. They did give us almost a year notice however. The kicker was though that you had to stay until the very end of that year in order to keep your severance package. We also had the option to re apply for the job we already had but with the contract company who was replacing us. 

In my case, I opted out and stayed the year needed to get my severance. After that I collected my unemployment and spent some much needed time with my son in his last years of high school before going off to OSU for college. In my case the insurance was not a deciding factor because my husband carried us on his insurance. That is something you will need to consider. The hardest part is having to start over. Like you, I had nearly 6 weeks of vacation plus personal time and 11 holiday's. Starting over with 2 weeks sucks!!

I have now been at my current place of employment for almost 10 years and we were recently told that we may get outsourced. (Life in the I.T world) we are supposed to hear before Christmas. I'm not sure what I will do this time around. Please let me know if I can do anything at all to help. Keep us updated

I would throw my vote for Melt. Started up here in Lakewood, Ohio and now have 6 locations. There is one in Eason and one in Short North.  Also, really enjoy Schmidt's in German Village.

I remember when Zeke got Chase. He is a wolf hybrid. I am praying someone didn't steal him for dog fighting because that would break my heart. Praying for a safe and fast return. Pretty sure he is in Cbus. His dad Stacy has an apartment in Cbus and that's where he taken from the first time.

I had just had surgery the day before so I was home. I live about 3 miles from the CLE airport and the silence of dead airspace was deafening. I immediately went and picked my son up from school to have him close to me. Truly the most horrifying day of my life.

God Bless any and all on that tragic day
