I slept till 10:30, then had a Breakfast Beer. Most work I did all day was go buy a mattress set to replace the one I took to Mom's after she died and the hospital bed was gone. Had to carry it upstairs so grand daughter Avie will have a place to sleep if Dorian ever gets up the coast before Thanksgiving.

Sorry. It was set to auto-draft, but with only 7 teams, it didn't do it and I wasn't paying attention to the date. I just created an 8th team so the draft will happen "shortly" (it doesn't say exactly when). It is set up to retroactively apply the stats to the first week.

Bianca Andreescu becomes the first Canadian to win a Tennis Major title defeating none other than Serena Williams in straight sets 6-3 and 7-5! Congratulations! An amazing accomplishment for a 19 year old in her first Major Final appearance and the first woman to win a Major in their first chance. She broke a buncha records anyway and I am very proud of her!!
The Facebook censoring is funny. My wife, who is an extraordinary baker, posted a picture a few weeks ago of a cake she make. The cake is called "Crack Cake" because it is addictive. The cake is made from wine and cinnamon and is one of the best damn cakes I have ever tasted. Anyone that I know that has tasted this cake wants more and goes on and on about it. Facebook, in their ultimate wisdom, took done the picture and the post and said it contained inappropriate material. It was a picture of a freaking cake.
Yes, but mank, it used the word 'crack'. Google seem to think that if any word has 'naughty' connotations, it is to be banned, even if the actual use of it is harmless, such as Jim's faggots. If you don't have English as your first language, you will be unaware of all the variations of meaning of some words.
To be fair to Google, in your example, I assume you were intending to mean that it was addictive as crack cocaine, and I could see why they objected to that.
Perhaps your missus could take a leaf out of Wallace & Grommit's book and call it "Cracking cake"?
Welcome to Britain, if you don't like the weather, just wait a minute, some more will be along soon.

The headline for this video is very mis-leading. It says “Watch a Hypersonic sled travel at (over) 10,000 km/h”
It should say “watch a flash of light and the smoke from a hypersonic sled going past at (over) 10,000 km/h.” It’s so fast you never actually see the sled and there is even a slow motion version and you still can’t see it!
