Yes, go Pack  (losing now but not over till the fat lady sings)  from a MN fan. 

I can't believe that a Vikings fan would ever cheer for the Packers!!  Isn't that dangerous?

Always wanted to drive cross country. When I was a kid we drove from NY to North Dakota, it was an experience!

I've been to 30 states so far.

You don't like the east coast?

I'm working my way there.  2020 was supposed to get me up there. NY, VA, PA and ME were on the agenda. Things happened.

I will have to ask my parents as they drove cross country 3 times.  I think they made to all 50 states.  

It is definitely something I want to do.  I have driven to many states, probably 30 to 35 states, but someday i want to do one big cross country trip.

Oh my, exactly what I do here. I have made tons of sauce from my homegrown tomatoes. And the Burpee catalogue-A treasure to read to lift the spirits these cold, snowy winter days.

There used to be a local burpee store off one of their warehouse but it closed several years ago.  No idea why, they were always busy spring thru summer.  Yes, I always love when the new catalog comes out and thinking about spring.

Thanks for mentioning the Advil, with your DW being a RN.

 

Some said it's not recommended after the Pfizer vaccines, something along the lines of "lessening the efficacy/effectiveness [pick one...] of the vaccine".

 

We had our 2nd Pfizer jab 4 hours ago, and my arm is hurting. I was just looking through our medicine chest for an Advil "replacement" ...  Advil works great for me.

 

Yeah, Advil is not good.  She took it because we don’t have Tylenol in the house.  She was apparently miserable, I slept thru it.  ;-).

The first line was hockey.  Everything after that was UFC.  I never bet against Tom Brady no matter what the odds.

I am betting Mahomes 2 weeks on.

 

The Blues played great last night.  The second period tonight, I think they were watching the Chiefs and forgot to go on the ice.

Planning on revisiting, a lot of them when we retire.

I think you are right about Mahomes.  That just means I won't be wagering.  I have a standing rule.  Never bet against TB.  Every time I have, I have lost money.

 

The Canucks are going to be rough this year.  They lost Markstrom and Tanev to free agency because of their cap issues.  The back end looks like a Chinese fire drill.  Quinn Hughes is going to be another Paul Coffey but somebodies going to have to play defense. That player doesn't own a blue jersey.

No,  safe in my house. Just wanted Aaron Rogers to win. Tired of Brady-like Jimmy Johnson winning 7 NASCAR championships.

On the upside, you can watch him struggle at Indy in May.... talking about JJ

I'm still missing 10 states.  I'd bet that there are a large number of Americans who never see more than a handful of states, and even a surprising number that never leave their home state.

On my car tour a few years ago I pulled into a rural gas station in Alabama for fuel and a snack. I spent 10 minutes with some locals leaning on the wall while eating and talking.  It was like being with the guy characters from King if the Hill.  Great guys but it left me wondering if they ever left their state, let alone county. Amazing countryside to drive through.

That’s a pretty nice run from your new place in Florida over to the west coast for an Alaskan cruise

I am at the 49 count...but still missing the visitation at just one state....Vermont.  Still want to go there.  🙂

I have been to about 40.  When my brother was in the Air Force our summer vacation was traveling to wherever he was stationed.  My dad loved to drive. I have such great memories of riding shotgun with him through the night.

I've been to 47.

Missing Oregon, Alaska, and the state with the most Senators per square mile.

Missing Alaska surprised me... I'd have figured you'd have done an Alaskan cruise somewhere along the way.  Oregon is beautiful.  I love southern Oregon and would live there if I could.

I once drove from Port Orchard WA to West Palm Beach FL in 6 days.  Those were a long 6 days!
