It seems like this has been a recent-ish change of meaning at least the way I have always understood it. I admit to being of a "certain age" but the word thug never used to have any color associated with it. Thug could apply to white, black or green for that matter. But I do live in a bubble so maybe I missed something

1.a violent person, especially a criminal.
"he was attacked by a gang of thugs"

One of my favorites is Beanie and Boom. I find they keep my attention and are very entertaining. Always have good guests too.

I will reiterate what others are saying. My son just went to Paris 2 weeks ago. He also banks with Chase. He let chase know of his travel plans ahead of time so his card was not flagged. (I think you can do it online) He did go to Chase and did exchange about $200.00 worth of US to Euros. Used his debit card everywhere. Also plus 1 about visiting the Catacombs. That was one of his fav things and the pictures I saw where really cool!

Thank you for posting this link Scarlet. I'm up near Cleveland and they are not reporting this on our local news. This has been the only way I can keep up with whats going on and I need to because my son lives in Cbus.

This is how it was explained to me: The horse who was the one who was interfered with, I believe, finished 7th. Maximum Security gets placed behind that horse and whoever would have finished second (whether he got interfered with or not) moves up to 1st. If you interfere, you are placed behind that horse and everyone else moves up.

It's Taspra. You may also address me as Tammy. However, fool, lazy, ignorant I am not. If you get that angry about msg board posts and feel the need to lash out personally at people, maybe this is not for you. Have a blessed day.

When I need something very simple that taste amazing, I usually fall back on these. 

Super Easy Sweet and Sour Meatballs


1 package frozen cooked meatballs (between 20-30 ounces)
1 12-ounce jar Heinz chili sauce
12 ounces grape jelly (yeah, I know, it maybe sounds weird, but it tastes amazing!)
Cayenne pepper (optional)


  • Put frozen meatballs in a crockpot
  • In a large sauce pan, mix together the chili sauce and grape jelly. Bring to an almost boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Pour sauce over meatballs in crockpot and cook until heated thru and then keep warm.
  • if you’d like a bit more heat to the meatballs, sprinkle a bit of cayenne pepper in at the end to taste.
  • Serve directly from crockpot. I usually double this recipe

It's pricey. I don't think we've ever gotten under $100.00. I have never gone for lunch though. Dinner prices are definitely in the $21+ per.  Another good option that has a GREAT view is NUEVO. Right at the end of East 9th street and has great views of the Rock Hall and Lake Erie. Much more affordable.

One of my favorite restaurants in Cleveland is Mallorca. Exceptional service and the food has always been great. http://www.clevelandmallorca.com/

For me:

As mentioned, every game matters, The pageantry, marching bands, college game day, kids turning into men before your very eyes, fight songs, seeing most of these guys years later still loving their alma mater, Tradition, rivalries. Some of the things I love about CFB
