  1. Grilled cheese sandwich made with butter flavored Crisco and fake cheese.
  2. Correct, not a complete statement, but it's the gist of things considering it is off topic. As far as the season. Good assessments.
  3. The new world order is taking advantage of an opportunity to forward their agenda and take over the world. We'll be getting rid of cash soon and the monetary system will be allowed to collapse as the wealth transfer to the elite is almost complete....
  4. That's not the whole picture. The middle class hasn't been a beneficiary of those numbers.
  5. Water? Like out the toilet... (Shameless "Idiocracy" movie reference....)
  6. Hmmm. Cavies aren't going to change their status. They already have two other co-ed groups in their organization.
  7. Wouldn't matter if they DID participate in Open Class. They'd still end up in finals just like Magic of Orlando did. That WOULD hurt their income though.
  8. Yikes, never a straight answer on here.
  9. That's why I stated that they were a step behind Texas and Indiana. Still, many California bands are ahead of bands from Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah ( minus American Fork), Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Montana, Minnesota, Kansas, you get my drift.... They're not bad bands, they're just a step behind Texas and Indiana, and probably in the 2nd tier of bands nationally... That's got to be a good thing....
  10. Ayala made GN Finals this year (12th), and Vista Murrieta did well in their regional BOA trip to the San Antonio Super Regional (20th). Ayala ( in Chino Hills), Vista Murrieta, Upland, Mission Viejo, Trabuco Hills, Fountain Valley, Cerritos, Los Alamitos, Mission Viejo, El Toro, Chino Hills, Rancho Verde, Rowland High, Arcadia, Etiwanda, Chino, Hart, Thousand Oaks, and quite a lot of bands in the San Diego area are good as well ( San Bernardo, Mt. Carmel). Southern California has one of the stronger group of bands in the WHOLE country, participating in several different local circuits. They regularly do very well against schools from different states and regions in the state. They may not all do BOA, but there are a lot of strong band programs in this VERY large and very populous area. Texas, Oklahoma, and Indiana schools seem to do the best schools, especially in regards to BOA. California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, the Carolinas, Penn, Tenn, KY, and Ohio are a step behind at BOA. California schools have the whole parade scene and bowl scene... So many of them put a lot of rehearsal time into that. Band programs can be strong with doing well at BOA marching band contests. Concert season, and percussion season, which California percussion sections rule the roost show off the strong SoCal band programs as well.
  11. I've lived there for many years in the past. There was a thread about the indoor facilities available in the city. You're not wrong to be concerned. The average temperatures are actually higher than 104... ...but there are indoor places too.
  12. Las Vegas is in fact building a dome! The skeleton is up!
  13. Breathe "Dah" is infecting the DCI world! Yeah!!!!
  14. It's a bit more complicated than that, but there is some truth to it. I've lived all over the place, and I've moved here 3 times over 30 years. Everytime I leave and come back, it gets more and more expensive to live here, and the standard of living keeps getting worse. ...but there is a sense of freedom and free will not present in other states. This "female inclusion rule" is just another papercut that we who live here have to endure. It is better than living in some of the states that I've lived in though... I just think it's stupid to be forced to have a board member that you may or may not want on the board of your corporation. Just find the most qualified.
  15. I live IN California and think that's a stupid law. California's driving businesses away as fast as they can as it is...
  16. Actually, the various hall of fames can decide who is on their lists, so my thoughts are moot. It looks bad for Hopkins to be on them, so regardless of anything else, I'm good with him being removed even if he is acquitted.
  17. Yes, I thought more about it,band also did some research on the topic. There's also civil versus criminal acquittal. So, yea, I should thank Spinning for getting me to think about it.
