Canada has quashed the Americans in a semifinal!

If you were the lucky folks who watched the Sochi 2014 olympics earlier today, Canada has quashed the USA in a 1-0 semifinal in Mens' hockey!

To commemorate this, I'm leaving you with a (somewhat of a) patriotic video:

There's never any shame in losing a hockey game to the Canadians or Finns.

At least we quashed the Russians. On home ice. With Vladamir Putin in attendance. This American hockey fan can live with that.

this will never happen, what's he smoking?

»news.yahoo.com/plan-divide-calif···451.html

Some similar crazy ideas earlier before about separating Cook county and Chicago from the rest of Illinois or Separating Long Island from Upstate New York.

It can work and we don't have to change the flag. Simply combine Vermont, New Hampshire, Conneticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine into Super England.

Grandma's Recovery and upcoming appointment

Grandma is recovering from her hip fracture quite well. She has an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon next month for a follow-up. I found out that the chair vans that take them from the nursing home rehab facilities are NOT covered by Medicare. I'm not sure if they're covered by her Medicare supplement (she has the one from AARP), so we're debating if we'll take her in the car or pay for the chair van. There is me and my 58 year old mother so their is two of us, but the chair van might be cheap insurance if something happens. She is not yet able to put full weight on her right leg quite yet.

My car is a 2001 Dodge Stratus, if the nursing home was on a bus line I would just take her on the bus as we could just put her in a wheelchair and take her on the bus as the buses are low-floor wheelchair accessible but the home is in Wilbraham which is an affluent community where the people own luxury cars. The bus would take the wheelchair transfer issue out of the equation (the bus has a wheelchair ramp that comes out the front door, and they have the tie-downs) but the car is much faster and you don't have to change buses at that dangerous (crime ridden) bus terminal.

Too bad I couldn't rent a wheelchair van and drive her myself. I'm sure wheelchair vans cost as much to rent as the medical transportation itself.

I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner and I currently have DirecTV. They are much better than broadcast TV.

I have not and will not cut the cord.

Re: Silicon Valley enterprenour proposes to divide California into six states

I've long been of the mind that we really don't need the Dakotas as states and that they should be converted into one really large paintball arena.

LOL. Or we could just combine the Dakotas into Super Dakota.

Of course paintball would be the state sport.

Re: Silicon Valley enterprenour proposes to divide California into six states

I would be overjoyed if one of two things happened.

1) California finally breaks off from the rest of the continental US and floats away to somewhere in the Pacific Ocean and is never heard from again

2) NYC succeeds from NY State. New York is such a shitty state and we would be much better off with out the burden of downstate.

Deploy your fiber goodness to all 34 city's and then to the rest of the nation. Wipe DSL and cable off the face of the USA. We need to become a all fiber to the home nation. Vote why60loss 2016.

Google rebellion against the ISP's has truly began!!!!

Re: Grandma's Recovery and upcoming appointment

Have you tried a private medical transport company. Some of them have the wheelchair transport ability but don't require a pot of gold to hire. Had to use one of them for my elderly dad a few times. Best wishes.

The Comcast one was pretty funny, I have to admit.

It would be a cold day in hell before you got NH and Maine to agree to become one again with MA. I assume VT feels the same way.

Lots of (not all) MA folks want to move to NH to get away from MA, then they want to change NH to be just like MA. No thanks!

Quash: to put down or suppress completely

Canada won 1-0. That's called squeaking by, not quashing.

Or how about just call it "New England" since it already has a name?
