The Prequel Trilogy / Re: The Slaughter of the Padawans

No, I was thinking more along the lines of the Messiah and King Herod killing all the babies of Bethlehem, Moses is something different :)

And Luke doesn't need to be a trained Jedi, everyone knows how powerful he is with the force...cause he was identified early and was under the care of the Jedi

The Escape to Egypt

13When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him." 14So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, 15where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: "Out of Egypt I called my son."[6]
16When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi.

I still am kind of remorseful that we didn't get that house, it was gorgeous, our current one is very nice as well but this was the kind of house that you walked in and went wow.  Every room got better, the space and size were all prefect.  Nice quiet street...

Arsonist and Murderer, Still At Large...Not priceless :-*

All I know is that it can't be as bad as this one was for us last fall :o

Would You Ever Buy A House Where Someone Was Murdered?

My wife and I are house shopping, we are starting to outgrow our two bedroom townhome and need some storage space and I want my Star Wars room back dangnabbit.

So last Friday we found a wonderful house built in 1960, quiet nice neighborhood,  4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, the entire house had been remodled, top to bottom, new appliances, new hardwood floors, new carpet, new porch etc etc etc.  It is well within our price range but had been on the market for two months.  We went back tonight to look again when we read the statement from the seller stating that there was an arson in the house and some died.

Searching around the old Minneapolis newspaper archives, I come to find out some dude set fire to his still living wife in this beautiful house we are looking at and killed her to collect $378,000 in insurance.  Then dude leaves the state on bond has been on America's Most Wanted, Unsolved Mysteries etc. and is still at large

My wife refuses to even think about living there, I wouldn't mind it because it really is a nice house, right where we want to live.  Kind of like Marge trying to sell the murder house to the Flanderereses, would you buy it knowing someone was still on the loose and he had murdered someone in the very place you were living???

While the housing market here in the Twin Cities is bad it sounds nowhere near as bad as SoCal or Boston.  We just bought our first real house this past January after living in a townhouse which we bought new in 2000.  We paid $125,000 and sold for over $160,000 pretty nice return on two years huh?  That is the crazy thing, once you are in the door it gets easy because you have a lot more cash to put down on the next one...

Good luck to both of you guys, it will happen just a matter of time!

Another of my favorites (along with Beedo :'() is the good ole Woodchuck Cider which now makes Pear and Raspberry flavors.

I'll never forget my last week of College when I discovered the fruity goodness of the Granny Smith variety...Barkeep, send me down a nice one  :P

Carrie, I haven't tried the Spring Ale I don't think.  I love the Sam's Cherry Wheat though, a great beer.


Silly Sidebar:  If I ever make that first million and can retire early, I am going to go back to school and get my Brewmasters degree and open a Microbrew/Resteraunt.  Lifelong dream, silly, sappy and sentimental but I would love to do it some day :'(

Air Guitar does not count sorry

My story is eerily similar to Chris's.

I was a tromboning fool from 4th Grade through College.  I was an All-State Band Member for a year and I was really good if I say so myself.  I toyed ever so briefly with focusing on music some how but never really did.

One joy of college though was playing in some cool Jazz Bands and Combos, having some feature pieces in which I was the soloist.  It was great and I will always treasure my playing days.

I miss it, I got the old man out last month after we moved and played a little for my son, he laughed.  I would love to join a Jazz combo or community band if I had more time, such is life with a 1 year old :(

My wife...was an all-state Vocalist three years!  She is an amazing singer and one of her steady gigs is wedding soloist.  She also can play the guitar, piano and drums.  She is an awesome talent... :-*

Still haven't figured out how you can be a fire truck Brent, were they invented when you were a lad?

At one point I did want to be a teacher I was just remembering today, High School History like the dude on Head of the Class (with all of the Hot Smart Chicks and Fat Nerds)  That never panned out really, except I did marry a teacher  :-*

That is bizzare and I never knew that.

Does that black drink that uses beans from Columbia or Hawaii come caffienated up there?

Had the Live Wire this morning, it is pretty good.  Really strong Orange flavor and all the caffieny goodness that us Americans come to expect from our POPS!
