Doop,

If you can not tell by my avitar, maybe I can quote the picture on my desk at work that reads, "My two favorite teams are the White Sox....And Whoever is Playing the Cubs!"

You will get a different story from Gene Gene The Cubbie-Loving Machine, as soon as he logs on.

I don't understand your message dude (are you trying to say 15 more changes between WSox and Twins for 1st pl?)

It's just me and you Doop......Hey, Hey - Holy Mackerel No doubt about it. The Cubs are on their way......

Right you are Geno. I had said to dude that I predicted about 10 lead changes in the Sox/Twinks race and then after 3 this week, I upped the number to at least 15. Should be an exciting roller coaster ride. Looks like you have found another person drinking the Cubbie Blue Kool-Aid in Doop. Have fun on your pennant run but don't get too full of yourself because there is a Bartman or a Billy Buckner around every corner from now till October!

Yup....sorry, in another post, Windy was predicting lead changes....6 in a row for the Brew Crew, the Cubbies will have to watch out.

Yep, ever since the Cubs put the Brewers in their place the Brew Crew had a dugout fight which seems to have propelled them.

Cubs on the road again could be trouble.

But you know the old saying, don't look back....

Hope they follow that advice and just keep playing the way they are capable of.

C'mon Soriano...get hot again!

LOL...good stuff guys.

Gene...what do you think of Fukodome dropping off like he has lately. I'd hate to see him on the bench because his glove is one of the best in the game...but watching him hit lately is a painful experience.

I'd like to see Johnson, Dero, or even give Hoffpauer a shot. That guy is RED HOT at Iowa! Give Kosuke a chance to clear his head a little.

GO CUBS GO!

And a Texan at that Windy.

Just a little hard to give a guy like Fukudome makin' $12Mill any time off. His moving around in the order can't be too good for him either though.

Johnson has been much more than I ever thought he would be...great addition. Lou's gotta be scratching his head every day making out the lineup with trying to keep the hottest guys in there.

I know one thing...Edmonds keeps hitting bombs...Reed will not be playing center! lol I can't believe the addition Edmonds has been. Fukodome hitting 2nd and The-Riot hitting 8th?

Would not have been my choice of a starting lineup...but Lou is the man smile

When I lived in Wisconsin in the 80s, my favorite bartender got me going on the Cubs. Those were the Ryno days when they were good. I couldn't name you five guys of this year's team.

A few years ago I was at a game at Wrigley...wearing my Ryne Sandberg jersey as I always do....after the game (Cubs lost) I was disgruntled and ready to go home after I bought a hat from one of the souvenir shops across the street. This guy comes up behind me and says "that's a nice jersey you have on there" I half turn around and say thank you. I turned back facing forward and almost filled my drawers. It was Ryno!!!! lol He was so cool! He signed my jersey, took a picture with him, and he signed a ball for me. Unbelievable moment.

I would have to say that Kosuke got the message. lol

He really needs to be in the lineup...just hope he can regain some of his early season patience at the plate. His defense is 2nd to none.

Dropped on his head made him a WSox fan? Good one. So that is what happened to Windy I guess.

A little southern cookin' in Atl was just what the doctor ordered for our Cubs. Now to continue the quest.

Good story about Ryno and the jersey-way cool. Post the pic if you can.

    • Reb's old girlfriend might have had a diaphragm, but you would find that one in the lower unit - not in the carburetor...
    • Most of the homeowner's expense comes from heating and cooling inside a home. Double pane windows have gasses like argon or krypton filled to displace the air between the panels. But the problem is when this leaks from the window panes and settles down at the bottom. 1) The main problem that would arise is condensation. The moisture level goes high thus causing mold, mildew and rotting wood sills. 2) If the gas leaks, the window will not provide better insulation. 3) The windows start to make squeaky sounds thus it is hard to close and open. 4) It also affects the stripping to loose. I live here in Canada. In our house, we have double pane windows in almost all the rooms. Now I could see that some of the windows to be in a foggy condition. Will it be due to the gas in the window panes? Should I need to replace the windows? I have heard that energy efficient casement windows are good compared to double pane windows. I would like to know the benefits of casement windows. Will it cut down my utility bills? Please do share your thoughts and valuable suggestions. Thanks for the time.
    • We spent last weekend in the camper, holed up hiding from the rain. Not the worst thing ever, but a hike would've been nice. Hopefully we'll have better weather over Memorial Day. It looks good now so I'm excited. 
    • I am in a confusion on which one to choose. I have anyways decided to separate the bath area from the toilet. Which one would be better? I don't have enough area in the bathroom. One of my friends said that when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation, a quick shower virtually always beats a bath. Is it true??   Although it is good for relaxing and ideal for bathing small children, I think it will be difficult for older people and people with injuries to get in and out. When it comes to the case of water heaters also I think it will be difficult to fill the tub. I think all these issues can be sorted out using a shower. Showers always need only less water. But if there is any leak, it will be difficult to fix.   I personally prefer bathtubs. Although it has many disadvantages compared to showers, the relaxation and freshness we get after bathing in a tube are very different. What is your opinion? Based on your opinion, I want to fix my decision and approach a plumbing company for installing it. Feel free to share your thoughts.
    • Mulches are really good. I have tried it in my garden once I had an issue with the weeds. It also retains the moisture in the soil.
    • Although its quite an old post, its still alive only because it is a very important talk. Most of them are behind reducing the weight. Reducing weight is not an easy task. Proper diet and exercise is very essential. Avoid red meat and oily food.  
    • I have seen just once in my life.
    • Great information. I was also looking for some tips to burn fat. I don't take too much food but I am a little bit fat. What could be the reason? Help me.
    • Way to go Andy!
    • Yep.  So far, I love it.  The only glitch so far is that the high speed doesn't work when I am traveling. The screen is clear, The side-imaging is also clear. It is VERY friendly to use!   I am very happy with it for a few hundred dollars less than Lowrance & Hummingbird.   Ref
