Peppers at 10, which seems low.
I know a lot of people don't care for Westerns but my grandfather got me hooked on war movies and Westerns. My Favorite Western stars Jimmy Stewart and is called "Winchester '73." If you haven't seen it, you should check it out. Some others that I love include
-Stagecoach: Starring a young Duke
-The Good, The Bad and The Ugly: Clint
-The Gunfighter: My man Gregory Peck
-Shane: Alan Ladd, a classic
-The Tin Star: with Henry Fonda and Anthony Perkins
What say you MGoBrethren?
As suggested by http://mgoblog.com/users/umgradmsudad UMGradMSU Dad, let's hear about when your cars have failed you. Blow a tire and ruin the chance of a hot date? Run out of gas when you're trying to break up your ex's wedding (that may have been from a movie)?
Did you stumble upon a broken down car full of girls in need of some desperate help? Did it go real swell and end up at the Eastside Motel?
Was it your fault? (As an automotive engineer I can guarantee it was either your fault... or the corporate bean counters' fault)
Let's hear when your cars have failed you - or when you failed them (they need gas to work!)
Sorry it's late today, but here goes. What was the BEST car you ever owned? What was the WORST? Why? Were they the same car?
(Side note, I don't have tons more topic ideas, if you have a good one, let me know!)
(Side note 2: someone asked why we don't get manual transmission cars anymore in the US, the short version is that it costs Millions to do federal crash tests and the cost/benefit is such that most companies decide not to federalize them. The long version is much longer and a bit of a rant... maybe some other time #SaveTheManuals)
If you're free tonight in Ann Arbor, come by Hill Auditorium at 8 pm for a free performance of Mozart's Requiem in memory of the victims of Sunday's massacre. Here's an excerpt from my invitation to sing--" All peaceful individuals, regardless of race, creed, sexuality, gender, and background are welcome ...The work is not being performed in the context of a religious service...There will be a single ecumenical, pan-faith reflection offered."
If you stick around during halftime you've heard me sing with the MMB and with the NY Phil the last two years. Tonight I will try to keep my emotions under wraps while singing this beautiful, moving piece. It looks like a third of the singers who signed up are members of the UMS Choral Union and we just sang this piece with the Toledo Symphony this spring to a standing ovation,
Thank you and Go Blue.
