    Just an FYI for those taking Northern Parkway. It is red light and speed camera central. Watch your speeds and red lights. They're everywhere.

    After literally 5 months on the road I finally made it to my new home in Maryland...last night. I completed my post-retirement trek this past week by driving coast-to-coast from south of Seattle; conveniently just in time for PF!

    I've only seen my wife a few times throughout the summer (because of separate schedules), so, after dragging my tired butt through the door, I promptly said hi, gave her a kiss and declared in the most manly voice I could muster, "I'm going to Polk Fest Friday!" She didn't bat an eye and said, "Good, you really should go". Those of you that saw the "retirement photo" w/all my vintage Polks can probably guess I have excellent WAF.

    From what I've read it looks like RSVP's aren't required, but just in case this is my official RSVP...I will be there tomorrow (unfortunately, I won't be able to meet up for dinner this evening). I've had the pleasure of meeting several CP members over the past year and am looking forward to meeting even more of you.

    You guys remind me of my students. The Party starts on Wednesday during the semester, it continues through the weekend and people show up hungover in Monday's classes. By Tuesday sobriety is achieved but then there are only two class days till Wednesday night's party and the cycle starts all over again! Sooner or later some of those "old" bodies are going to "give out" at a PF. But hopefully NOT this one!

    Good to see the "hardcore" members together again. You haven't seen anything till you've seen those guys in action.

    Enjoy the sushi, sake and whatever else. But remember you ALL have to be at HQs by 9 like a bunch of school boys? Don't miss class!

    Here's a tip I learned from a Psych Prof who used to fly planes in the Air Force. Mr. Grand probably knows or can dispute this. He once told me that when they spent a night out on the town tanking up they'd make for the (pure) OXYGEN tanks and breathe as much in as possible, helped them recover from possible hangovers more quickly than the others?

    On another note. One prof. challenged another to a drinking contest. He was about 5'7" and maybe 155-160, his opponent 6'3" and 245--a big drinker too. What did our diminutive Prof. do to ensure that he could drink his colleague under the table?

    He ate an ENTIRE jar of Marshmallow Fluff before the contest, effectively coating his stomach with the equivalent of an impenetrable shield against fast alcohol absorption. The outcome. The big tough fellow collapsed and fell asleep at the table. The smaller man walked out having won the bet!

    But you wouldn't exactly be "walking". Not in a straight line at least.

    You'd also yell at the door for walking in to you like that.

    Never heard of that tale before.

    However, a large glass of water or two before you sleep will do wonders for no hangover. You need to re-hydrate your body after drinking so much.

    If you drink unfiltered beer such as some of the smaller craft beers they contain yeast residue that really helps for hangover prevention. It helps the reuptake of water and glucose back to the brain. There are many ways alcohol causes hangovers, but taking vitamin b12 helps too. Goody's or BC powdered aspirin is a good quick morning remedy, followed by a quick cold shoot of moonshine.

    But who cares, bottoms up guys, and drink lots of beers for me!

    It was a fun dinner last night. I was a bit tired last night from my long day. Up at 0330 and to work at 0500. At the dentist by 1400 to get three old fillings drilled out and replaced. There's just something about loud drilling and grinding along with a burning smell coming from my mouth that's not too comforting. Thankfully I got to see some old and new faces along with good food!

    Carl got yelled at by the waitress...

    "You turn prate around! Turn prate...TURN PRATE!!!!" I finally stepped in..."Carl, you need rotate the plate around, FAST, she has one hand on the samurai sword and she's getting pissed...at YOU!!! Turn the plate NOW!!!" Carl survived.

    Off to throw down some breakfast and head out to Polk HQ for a day of fun and excitement!

    Any live feed from Polk HQ? LOL

    Things didn't exactly pan out for me this time—life, two young kids, wife just had a small surgery, not much PTO time this year—the usual :)

    Enjoy folks!
