I would bet that itís 2 flatscreens back to back getting and the same HDMI input.



Those are my thoughts as well. It's a nice touch as it rises out of the room divider.

Perhaps all these miscellaneous discussions are grist for the DT site. I have a desire to avoid cinnamon buns though.

My wife would be thrilled with my effort to cook but very disappointed in the result.



She would be thrilled just to get you off the couch, no matter what the reason was.

Aw shucks Doc! I was trying a swindle on my old compadre! I do not play the lottery, so am not aware of the details.... But my point is that I trust the lottery to be random.....


That is my expectation also, at least for lotteries managed by the government. It's just that the recent results shown in my first post on this topic just seemed so unreasonable for a truly random drawing that I thought someone might provide the calculations on just how paranoid such an opinion might really be.

Is there an appointment app where if you make an appointment the business can just send an email, and it will go straight to the electronic calendar on your phone posting itself automatically on the correct date with time and location?
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Outlook itself does that. Sends an email with an embedded attachment to update your calendar.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Thanks, I guess I'll have to figure it out then.

I ordered some pizza from a place in Detroit today. I was offered two options. Three for $79, with a $26 shipping and handling charge, or Six for $119, with free shipping.
3 for $105 or 6/$119. Tough choice.
The sales rep said about two-thirds of buyers upgrade to the six-pack.
In NYC, they estimate a pie should cost under $5 to be profitable. Assuming that is true in Detroit, the company is barely breaking even on these upgrades, and since you don't get offered the upgrade until you were going to buy the three-pack, it seems like it's not very well thought out.
Their carryout special is pretty strange, as well. A pizza is $21.95, but a pizza and a pint of ice cream are $18.99.

Now you are talking my language. I always look for the deals.

Was it from Buddy's? I think that is the only Detroit pizza I have had.

I noticed a horse named "Bareback Fun". That's the worst one I've ever seen to my memory.
