Kind of dated, but still humorous.

Error leaves PNC Milwaukee Marathon course short

The result was a shortcoming of about eight-tenths of a mile.

And that will likely mean those with Boston Marathon qualifying times Sunday may not in fact be able to use those times.

What makes this really bad is this is the 2nd year in a row that they had the wrong distance. The same experts were used to measure the course both years, even after last year's was too long. :roll:

collar or no collar on today's Tuxedo shirts........

Postby mnymgr1 » Tue Oct 24, 2017

I tried on my tux for a new tv role last week, surprised it fit me.
The shirt on the other hand did not fit me.
Curious if any of you know, is the 'in' style today with or without a collar ??
They still make both kinds, I prefer to buy what's the current style today.

Also, ruffle front of shirt or plain white dress shirt style ?
Guessing ruffle for more formal events like NYE, maybe business style for gala's, charities ???

thanks for the input.

I didn't apply as I have no one to take care of my youngest kid in the morning.
Would have been fun and honestly nice to see people dressed up for the day.
Probably close to 200 extras, so chaotic but interesting.

There's another big 2 day shoot next week that I won't qualify for due to my age.
Now that one, that would be fun too, filming in an actual nightclub.
The description for the featured model roles in the VIP areas :oops: Scantily clad is probably being nice.
Those shoots last from 6am until 10pm or later, then you have to show back up the following morning at 6am.
This not having anyone to watch the youngest is really unpleasant as I enjoy leaving the dungeon once in a while :|

I guess for people who tend to get ripped off when packages are dumped at their doorsteps, this might provide some protection....but really, letting amazon delivery people have access to your home so packages can be placed inside ??
Why not instead provide a lockbox outside the door where packages could be left safely ??

Amazon is just copying Wal-mart on this one, but Wal-mart wants to go further (into the fridge), as I posted here:
