    Any honeymoon recommendations?

    According to the cruisecritic.com forums (in the Ports of Call Subforum), they are open for two ships at a time and Carnival still lists them as a stop as of last week when I called to question them on that. That said, if we don't go, I'm sure I can think of something to do. David

    Any honeymoon recommendations?

    I'm getting married on Saturday, Nov. 27. On Sunday, my wife and I (gotta get used to that) will be flying to Tampa to board the Carnival Miracle for a 7 night Western Caribbean cruise. We will stop at Cayman (open for two cruise ships at a time), Cozumel, Belize, and Costa Maya. I booked...

    NFL Season 2004-2005 Thread

    There I went and shot my mouth off and not only did the Titans lose (not a big deal), Calico is hurt (that is a big deal). Eddie didn't do much. I can't see how he starts, or gets more carries, than Jones. Eddie's still great in pass protection, though. Hopefully, Calico will be...

    NFL Season 2004-2005 Thread

    Jed, Jed, Jed. You know you want to watch the Titans and 'Boys tonight. Surely you can't pass up the opportunity to see poor, 40-year old, Vinny get pummelled by some blitzing LB. ...or see Eddie have a 2.8 yards per carry average with Bulluck and co. smacking him everytime he...

    NFL Season 2004-2005 Thread

    If the Titan's have a balanced offense with Brown, then I think they live through McNair's injuries. Volek would start for several teams and the entire team is very comfortable with Volek behind center. McNair is special in that he can win without a great running game, but I'm not so sure with...

    NFL Season 2004-2005 Thread

    What's everyone thinking about the AFC South this year? The Colts are the Colts- great offense and an average defense. Manning is such a fantastic quarterback and chessmaster. Dungy is one of the best, and classiest, coaches in the league. Their secondary is just too weak. The new...

    Movie primer list - Westerns

    Just to add a couple, or three, movies to this list to include one of my favorite actors in a Western- Sam Elliot. I love Elliot in The Sacketts, The Shadow Riders, and The Quick and the Dead. Now, most if not all of those movies were made for TV, but I felt compelled to include Sam. I...

    2004 NHL Playoffs: Round 1

    Not bad. I got three of the four conference final participants correct (last post on page 1 of this thread). To this point, I only missed the Colorado defeat of Dallas in the Western Conference. In the Eastern Conference, the only pick I got right was Tampa. Good luck to all four teams...

    2004 NHL Playoffs: Round 1

    Let me second how great hockey is in HD. Having watched the Super Bowl in HD this past year and several hockey games, hockey gains a huge edge with HD over SD. Due to the size of the puck, and the ability to see more ice on the screen, and the feeling of "closeness" to the game, hockey in HD is...

    2004 NHL Playoffs: Round 1

    I agree Prentice, they played their way into the playoffs. Their playoff clincher in Nashville was one of the most fun games I've ever attended. Their were probably 1 to 2 thousand Blues fans that apparently road several buses to be at the game. The dueling chants were great. My only...

    2004 NHL Playoffs: Round 1

    I always love to watch the banter between fans of two teams during a playoff series (of any sport, really). I always ask the question of whether the person in question actually knows anything about both teams in the series, or takes other factors (like a rivalry) into account that might impact...

    ANyone else besides ATL having Superbowl HD problems?

    Here in Nashville, WTVF's broadcast was really pretty good. There was an occasional audio dropout, and maybe pixellation once or twice, but it was very good otherwise. When I first saw the new commercial for that car that out ran the speed of sound, and not paying that much attention, I...

    ER 10/23/03

    I actually thought this one of the better episodes in a while. The whole episode just had a great vibe going for it. It's one of the few episodes, storywise, that you could have swapped Mark Greene with Pratt, Ross with Coop, and Carol with Abby and then had an old episode stylisticly. You...

    So how many celebrities live near YOU?

    ... and Nashville probably doesn't count either. It's not uncommon at all to go to a local restaurant (and I don't just mean Ruth's Chris, or something else in that price range, I'm talking mom and pop places) and people like Tim McGraw and Faith Hill along with their Kato (Kenny Chesney ;-))...

    Reviving the Drive-In

    I'm very proud of the drive-in just west of my hometown in Waverly, TN. Built in 1967, the drive-in is so well maintained that it looks brand new. Here is link via drive-ins.com: http://www.drive-ins.com/theater/tnvall David
