  1. Not there! I had many PT samwiches in Indiana, and I thought no one could make a tasteless one until I had one at LOS.
  2. Oh man...I was really looking forward to a hot dog at Lucas Oil Stadium.
  3. Being cooped up inside as a family can get tiresome after a while. But there's a lot of outside safe recreational alternatives to theme parks, restaurants, sporting events, etc... A family activity we did to get out and about without potentially spreading illness was going on a day hike. Pack your food and hygiene supplies, and explore the open air.
  4. We had family game time last night. Blew the dust off some games like Pictionary and Scattergories.
  5. I'm most concerned about the elderly. That bothers me at night. Our church is shut down for two weeks, so a lot of them won't get around. Getting visitors in person is a concern. Make sure you don't neglect to call your elderly relatives and check up on them... more often than normal if possible.
  6. Forsythia (The umbrella corporation doesn't want you to know this)
  7. I wear long slacks, and a t-shirt and I'm usually comfortable with the inside temps. Maybe consider a long sleeve if you get cold easily in A/C, but it's usually not blowing very cold air IMO. Most people come and go a lot from the stadium, it's no big deal and I recommend doing it to eat most of the time. Walk just a block from the LOS to Shapiro's Deli restaurant at least once to eat. Plenty of other places nearby to eat and avoid the rather lousy and overpriced concessions at LOS. Last year I got one item at LOS, here was my post about that: I was waiting with the age-outs by souvie tents late that Friday. I hadn't eaten since before Semis and my stomach was rumbly, so I decided to get something to take the edge off the hunger. I got a "soft" pretzel because I figured, how bad could that be? After a 5 minute wait the lady brought me a pretzel and said, "Well I had a hard time finding this and it's not very good, so...you can just have it for free...if you want it" The pretzel was cold, damp, and stale and had no salt on it. I later figured out that she must have thought I said "no salt" pretzel vice "soft" pretzel. I think she might have washed the salt off of a regular salted pretzel in the sink.
  8. Everybody needs to make at least one post on at least one thread every month or we don't get paid DCP dividends. This counts for mine.
  9. It's a tradition. Somebody has to say that or it's not Drum Corps and everything will just go to pot. I mean take that away and the next thing you know there'll be MMs in strange spandex outfits running around, using sousaphones, trombones, and God knows what else.
  10. Well I suppose it could be a growing distrust of DCI in general as a safe venue for kids. I'm not sure if that's what you're implying, it's hard to read people's thinking in this forum context sometimes. Locally and currently, sometimes it seems there are more conflicts with school activities than in the past.
  11. Getting firm and timely agreements from schools to host the practices is an ongoing problem.
  12. My wife is cooking again, but she doesn't know where it's at yet. The last one was at East Hampton but I don't think that's a repeat.
  13. I used it liberally my whole life, so if I start developing cancer when I'm 98 or so...then THAT'S the cause. 😜
