    The reality is they just don't understand that area. They usually look at local airports, and - with an hour or so difference allowed - pick the lower cost. I've told them several times that the difference between those two airports (maybe 30 miles) can be more than 2 hours at the wrong time of day. In fact, when I landed, that's how big the difference was. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to get to my hotel from Laguardia, and I'd have made it in about 30 minutes from Newark.

    if you can bill them for those 2 1/2 hours, Ia m sure they get the point.
    (but if you tell them and they still don't get it, damn, that's ignorant!)

    No, they pay by the day, so no extra pay for me for the longer drive, unfortunately.

    Wwwwwwinter has hit hard here... or fast moreso! Such a drastic drop in temps... and been trying to get over this up and down cold!

    Managed to finally get some training in this week, am starting a new phase of training which is long overdue... lowering my weight training down to 2 days a week now, and really honing in on rehab (wrists and knees), flexibility + mobility work, and karate. Got in a nice 30 minute session before to ease into things, just straight-up kihon with a slice o' kata.

    Thanks, back and doing fine....don't know what it was, but after the cortisone shot in the hip, to quote the song "Copperhead Road", "I came home with a brand new plan"

    More on that later.

    Love some Steve Earle. David Allen Coe had bought a former public park/pool that has some really cool history where he and Earle lived for a while. Coe and Earle done some crazy, crazy s*** and seldom got in trouble for it. He had a 1930's Dodge limousine that had a separate drivers compartment that was very cool. The park eventually became a big biker hangout and things started getting pretty shady. Wasn't long after that Coe sold the place and moved out.

    Just watched Ip Man 3. biggest complaint. it is only in Cantonese....no Mandarin....but it does have English Subtitles. Not a bad movie, but not my favorite of hte series, but just as historically inacurate and 1 and 2

    I dont think anyone would rationally claim those movies are historically accurate. Sadly people still (irrationally) try to

    Yes. So many chops to bust, so little time.

    Frightening people, women be.
