That's a great show for anyone that's interested.

and BTW, I got rear-ended by an AF MSgt this morning while stopped at the light on 1604/Potranco. There's several ways to get out of there and obviously I picked the wrong one. I was just sitting there listening to Elvis and happy that there wasn't much traffic at 6:40 AM and then suddenly I got hit in the back. I guess his foot slipped off the brake pedal or something like that. He was saying he didn't really know what happened, so that's the only thing we could think of. There wasn't much damage, but I can't get the snaps on the bumper cover to reattach, so it might mean a new one and that probably won't be cheap. He was nice, so I hope it's an easy fix, but this truck is brand new and I'm not going to drive around with a jacked up rear bumper. This makes two vehicles in a row that have been hit in the back when they were brand new. Only in freaking San Antonio with all the crappy drivers can that happen..

RD-Guess those anger management classes worked
You didn't get out and beat the tar out of the guy for his stupidity.

I doubt he was drunk since he was active duty in uniform and didn't smell like it. I have a pretty good sense of smell and if I would've smelled liquor, I would've dialed 911 immediately.
I did learn a few things, though. I need to pay more attention because I couldn't identify the model or color of the truck he was driving; all I could remember was it was a small truck. I also don't remember what he looked like, just remember active duty MSgt in blues. Luckily it wasn't a bad guy with no insurance and no residency issues..
anyhow, I'm going to the dealership today to find out what it's going to take to get the bumper to stay together and I'll probably try to ignore the little scratches, even though that's not going to be easy for me. I wouldn't want anyone to hammer me if the shoe was on the other foot though. and I was listening to Love Me Tender; good thing Metallica wasn't on

I got rear ended by the wife of an AF (don't know the rank - I think it was Sgt or something!) She was reaching in the back of her car to get a toy dropped by her toddler while at the light and her foot came off the brake. I could totally see that happening - I do that all the time. It wasn't a big deal. And my bumper's paint was coming off anyway so I got it taken care of for free

The bumper step cover is $73.25, so the guy is getting off easy. I'll just have to try to ignore the scratches, although I think an offer of some extra cash might make it easier to forget..

forgot to post this link: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,431866,00.html

some people are just stupid and WAY too sensitive. He's one of the funniest comedians I've ever watched.

Hi, everyone,

Thanks for the replies! Yes, afraid I'm not a Netflix member, but will definitely make sure to watch the ep at NBC.com.

Thank you all again,

Kelley

He has two DVD's and I'd highly recommend both of them. The guy is very talented and will bring tears to your eyes with his humor

you can watch both of them instantly on Netflix too. You get this now too: Starz Play content added to Netflix's streaming library - Engadget HD

If you do a search specifying the name of the TV show, season and episode number (and the word FREE) you shoudl be able to find at least one website that has what you're looking for.....

if you still can't find it -DM me and I'll have my hubby look for it for ya!

good idea, thanks. I want to buy the first season on DVD, but only because of the picture of the new Terminator (the girl from SA). The picture on the back of the case is Nice http://www.amazon.com/Terminator-Con...YQFEZX8TFCN3XR
