Congrats MBA. I hope you have as much fun with your nephew as Mrs VG and I have with our two.

Is there a thrill to compare with the thrill of getting a brand spanking new dryer?

I just realised that I am not only celebrating my third wedding anniversary tomorrow (the leather one :wink: ) but I have also just celebrated my third anniversary on the current guise of the board.

Quoting myself there... I'm with you, Thomasso. The Citrus-Peach flavor is just as delish; I've got a 12-pack of each in my fridge right now. Now if they'd put caffeine in it I'd be all set!

Doc and I were in Michigan and tried some of that Fresca last week. We don't have it here but we bought some in the local grocery store and kept it in our hotel room (it beat the hell out of paying $2.00 in the hotel soda machines). It was pretty yummy.

Seems like a good mixer for some kind of alcohol, but I didn't have any to experiment. . . . .

At least in the Northeast, Fresca never went away.

So it's agreed, we'll all get together in a north-east city (such as New York) and drink Freca Smirnoff. Last one drunk pays the bills!

I love the Geico ads. The one with the pissed off Cavemen is my favourite.

"Next time, maybe do a little research." :D


I just saw that one-- it's so well done. Makes me laugh outloud every time. You may have noticed I am a fan of the Gecko... my son does a dead-on rendition of the line I'm currently using as my sig, complete with accent and hand gestures.
