She kissed the hairbrush by mistake, she thought it was her husband Jake - Burma Shave.

These were on Rte. 67, about 6 miles outside of Upper San. When I was a kid (50's).

Here I thought you were always just using ‘salty’ as slang, lol (to describe someone who is annoyed or angry).

I've been away for awhile, but I can't tell just how great it is to be back in NE Ohio and see the Browns win. The Brownies are actually 2-1 with Baker Mayfield at the controls and it seems as if there is hope for the future. Now the Indians have to follow suit tomorrow.

GO TRIBE!

If only... . Tribe looks like they don't belong on the field with the Astros.

Like my son said, "At least we have the Buckeyes." Big commitment this past week for Chris Holtman's b.ball Bucks with Liddell. Got three bonafide stars to verbal for 2020. This year's four man class decent also.

In staying with one of the cornerstones of this thread over almost 20 years, here are the nominees for the 2019 class of The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.
I believe anywhere from 7-9 performers go in each year. In the order that I read them:

1. Devo - one hit and the Rug Rats. No.

2. Todd Rungdren _ Hello It's me. No

3. John Prine - The dark horse. I bought an album of his in the early 70's Hello In There is a Classic. Check out his recent album and especially the song Summer's End. All of his shows are selling out and tributes pour in from other performers for his body of work. Yes but he won't get in.

4. Janet Jackson - Sure. yes.

5. Stevie Nicks - The Welch Witch. Great songwriter and performer. Still fetching at 70!! H### Yes!

6. Roxy Music - I missed them - ?

7. Kraftwerk - They seem to be nominated every year. I guess; just to get them off the ballot.

8. MC5 - My radical hood rat friends and I had their classic Kick Out The Jams album. More revolutionaries than anything else. "Brother, Wayner Cramer... ." No - but they might.

9. The Cure - A hit or two, right? No.

10. Radiohead - Missed them - ?

11. Rage Against The Machine - See Kraftwerk.

12. Rufus/ Chaka Kahn - not my thang. But popular - Yes.

13. Zombies - several hits. supposedly their last album is a masterpiece. She's Not There and Time Of The Season are great songs. Yes.

14. Def Leopard - Photograph. Yes

15. L.L. Col J. what do I know about his stuff - nothing.

Whatcha think? Criteria is to have recorded a record at least 25 years ago. Weak list, I believe.

My picks:

1. Devo – Iconic. Yes.



2. Todd Rundgren – ‘A Dream Goes On Forever.’ Can’t walk through a store without hearing one of his songs playing overhead. Yes.

3. John Prine – Too many still wonder “Who?” No.

4. Janet Jackson – “It’s Janet. Miss Jackson, if you’re nasty.” Duh, yeah.

5. Stevie Nicks – “Isn’t she that lady from American Horror Story?” Yes.

6. Roxy Music – Bryan Ferry or Brian Eno? ‘If There Is Something.’ Yes.



7. Kraftwerk – Ahead of its time, but no.



8. MC5 – ‘Kick Out The Jams.’ Influential, but no.

9. The Cure – ‘Boys Don’t Cry,’ ‘Primary,’ and ‘Just Like Heaven’ (try to ignore the Spanish subtitles ). Yes.



10. Radiohead – Gods to many. Band despises ‘Creep’ (gotta love that guitar crunch, though ). Yes.



11. Rage Against The Machine – ‘Killing In The Name.’ Have a lot of their music. Maybe too political. So, no.



12. Rufus /Chaka Khan – Popular in the 70s and 80s. No.

13. The Zombies – Most only know ‘She’s Not There’ (great song). No.



14. Def Leppard – People still luv ‘em some ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me.’ Yes.



15. LL Cool J – ‘Mama Said Knock You Out’ and ‘Going Back To Cali.’ He’s everywhere, still. Yes.

As I see it:

1. Devo (dark horse pick)
2. Todd Rundgren
4. Janet Jackson
5. Stevie Nicks
12. Rufus/ Chaka Kahn
13. Zombies
14. Def Leopard
15. L.L. Col J.

Here's one of my favorite parodies NOT done by Weird Al. The song itself starts at the 2:09 mark, but the intro is worth the watch. FAIR WARNING: a really awful pun is involved.

Roxy definitely needs to be in. They were innovators. DEVO should have at least a booth by the kitchen.

Love Weird Al. Boys at 14 - it's their first bro crush because Al is just as goofy as they are. We have seen him several times and when he worked the crowd in Toledo he was right in front of us. Lot of fun. Great show!

Anyone recall when MTV started that one of their bits was Weird Al TV. Very good! His thing on Charles Nelson Reily is a classic ... of something.

I will always readily admit when I don't know something - that I am late, often very late to the game.

A year or so ago we discussed the The Sunday's Here's Where the Story Ends. Wonderful song.
Now tonight I have stumbled across another gem by The Smiths called There's A Light That Never Goes Out. Great, great music. 17,000,000 listeners /viewers agreed ahead of me!

Also, please give John Prine's Summer's End a listen. The Colbert show.

Mrs. Z and I went to the OSU game today. Our second time since we stepped down from being Redcoats in 2006.

So much has changed in the last 12 years. Biggest thing I noticed was the rest of B deck on the home side seems to have disappeared, and will be made into more revenue-generating luxury boxes.

We parked in an OSU lot, but it was so far away, it was a 50-minute walk for us each way. The saving grace was that our seats were in the front row of B deck in the northeast corner, in "box seats" - permanent ergonomic stadium seats with a back.

It was good to be back in the stadium. Lots of memories from my student days, and from taking tickets and working outside the OSU locker room. And we got to see the 1968 championship team being honored in the end zone today, that was pretty cool.

The Buckeyes didn't play well, but it's always an interesting experience to attend a game at "The Shoe". The excitement, pageantry, TBDBITL and even some good football is well worth a trip to Columbus. I watched the game of TV and was happy to see the 1968 team and its "Super Sophomores" get recognized on the 50 anniversary of their undefeated season and national championship. For old-timers like some of us on this thread, it's hard to believe that championship season was FIFTY years ago. Some of those players, like Rex Kern, Jim Otis, Jack Tatum, Larry Zelina, John Brockington, Mike Sensibaugh and others will forever live in Buckeye football history. That had to be a thrill to see those guys (the ones who are still with us) back on the field at Ohio Stadium.

With LSU's 36-16 upset win over Georgia, it looks like OSU will move up to #2 in the national rankings. I find it ironic that a former Buckeye, LSU QB Joe Burrow, engineered the victory over the Bulldogs that will probably propel OSU to the #2 ranking. Also, I was surprised that Michigan State upended Penn State, WVU lost to Iowa State and that Nebraska dropped to 0-6 for the first time in school history. It still, however, looks like everyone is chasing #1 Alabama.

On a sad note, former Green Bay Packer Jim Taylor died at 83. Taylor was the first of the Lombardi-Era Packers to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
RIP #31

ROCK ON!

The Bucks gave off that creeping feeling that they were about to lose in a monumental upset today. Oh well; win and move on, as they say. Haskins is really good. Saw that Barrett was cut from the Saint' practice squad and I believe Cardell has moved down where ever he is at.

I agree with OWK about the super sophs from fifty years (!) ago. Such a different time. They were fun to watch. Nine game season and the Rose Bowl. That was back in the day when if you wanted to "see" the game on tv, you had to watch the one hour capsule presentation on WOSU; don't know if Woody had his show yet or not. In many ways it was still small time.

Also, wanted to comment on the passing of Packer, Jim Taylor. He was never as good as J.B. but he was close in a different way. More of a grinder on those great Packer teams. He was an opponent who scared me when the Browns were so good in the 60's. I believe I read over the years that he was a fairly decent guy.

RIP, indeed, Jim Taylor - full back, Green Bay

Seeing a game at the Shoe would be fun.

Yes, we really did watch it all day. Hubby is training for an Ironman, so he's very interested in it. We were going to go watch Ironman Florida in a few weeks, but it's held in Panama City Beach, FL. It's been cancelled for this year because of the storm. I'm hoping they will do it elsewhere, up the coast maybe. Athletes train all year for this.

Marine nomenclature...
Poguey or Pogey Rope – The French Fourragère authorized for wear by members
of the 5th and 6th Marine Regiments.

Fourragère of the Croix de Guerre

(notice that the colors of the roping are that of the ribbon of the award pictured below)

For the actions during the Great War (now known as WW-I) at Belleau Wood, Soissons,
Blanc Mont, Aisne, Battle of Saint-Mihiel, and the Meuse-Argonne offensive.
The 5th & 6th Marine Regiments were awarded the French Croix de Guerre three times.

Croix de Guerre


As a result, the regiments are authorized to wear the Fourragère of the Groix de Guerre.
The Fourragère thereafter became part of the uniform of the unit, and all members of the
modern 5th & 6th Marines are authorized to wear the Fourragère while serving with the regiment.
