  1. We are in the beginning stages of planning a family trip to Israel - two families with 3 kids in the 13-14 range. We are well versed in the standard [Jewish] itinerary - Kotel, Masada, Dead Sea, etc. - of which we will do plenty. Looking for suggestions of some things off the beaten path, and things that the kids will enjoy and remember. The trip will be winter break, so things like rafting on the Jordan River and spending an afternoon at Sachne (Barton Springs of Israel) are probably not options.
  2. It took me about 5 minutes.... The 10 person ExxonMobil board of directors includes one person (a former ExxonMobil executive) with an oil and gas background. The other 9 board members come from academia, insurance, IBM/Xerox, pharmaceuticals, Caterpillar, and Food and Beverage. In 2018 their compensation averaged $366K.
  3. As much as I loath Ken Starr, he has quickly confirmed my initial assessment that Jay Sekulow is not a very good lawyer. Beyond the overall poor organization and logic of his initial Saturday presentation, I almost fell off of the treadmill when Sekulow cited "34 colon seven through 13" of Dr. Fiona Hill's deposition transcript.
  4. It's obsolete because the Brits have not impeached since 1868....
  5. Came hereto say FUCK without doing so on your public FB page. Sorry, Champ. Good luck with whatever is next.
  6. When my in-laws died a few years ago, the consensus of several legit appraisers was - nobody wants brown (antiques) any more.
  7. I don't have the VSSL, but like what I have read about it. We expect to finally break ground on our post-Harvey house in the spring, and I intend to pull wire to a central spot for use of the VSSL for distributed audio. As I understand it, every zone operates independently (six different people, in six different rooms, can all stream what they want to the speakers in that room at the same time), and you can set up one "party" group to play the same stream in as many zones as you want simultaneously. It also has a couple of inputs for things like a CD player, and bus outputs such that one of your zones could be your AVR speakers. It is a bit pricey, but I am interested. Also, I have read a few forum comments suggesting that one might be able to buy one direct out the back door.
  8. We were very happy with ours - until they became shit spewing volcanos during Harvey.
  9. “VSSL uses Native Streaming to connect your speakers to the music apps that you already know and love. Native Streaming is already integrated into your phone through Airplay, Chromecast built-in, and Spotify Connect. By adding a VSSL to your system you simply play what you love to the room you want.”

    Milkman, Kelley Fox (and the wines she made for Scott Paul) have been my favorite Oregon Pinot Noir for years, but I’ve never had her Chardonnay. Tell me about it.
  11. Just burn it the fuck down. Fuck you Mensa. Next!
