This is just an alternative to the bars here you folks have been hanging out in - if anyone happens to be interested. The floors are dirty, the crowd is rough, the bartender/bouncer will throw you out into the street if you get violent, there are peanut shells all over the greasy floor, and the only drink they sell there is beer...

Party on.

We are headed directly into midwinter according to this forecast. Yuck. My Christmas lights are going to freeze in place on the house and I will be taking them down in March again.

Barkeep! Warm beer please!

Warm beer please. Actually tastes good on a frigid day!

Boltz might have had some divine help today but why would zook have waited so late into the game?????

i just wanted to share something i found out about David from his brothers blog

this was posted to Zooks brother

Dan, I think I can shed some light on the origins of "Zook". Freshman year at UCSD, your brother and I took a class in "Music Appreciation". It was a hard core theory class and your brother really got into it, while for me it was pure torture; I just didn't get it. Anyways, the course textbook was this piece of work by Victor Zukerkandl:

During the year, one of our friends, Steve Clemens, was giving out nicknames to everybody. Dave kept bugging him to give him one, and Steve looked over at the Zukerkandl book in David's room and hence he was christened "Zook" which somehow evolved into Zooknoone or Zook No One. and that's it in a nutshell! Gosh, I miss that big guy.
