Manny's

In lieu of an "Away Team" trip up to LaValle like we've been doing, the guys that are down here got together for lunch today... OK... it's just me and Barry and Joe. Not a big deal, but it turns out that the place we went to both Barry & Joe have been to before. In fact, Joe used to go there quite often in a prior life when he worked in the area.

We went to Manny's deli on Jefferson in Chicago's "South Loop" area... an area that didn't look ANYTHING like it does now just a few years ago. Huge developments, both commercial and residential.

And then there's Manny's. Who ever heard of a cafeteria style deli that's been around since 1942, a place that politicians STILL do business there in the seating areas, a place that STILL has a GOOD selection of cigars in the humidor at the checkout cash registers, a place that has... COMPLIMENTARY VALET PARKING?

Had a Reuben (Barry and I were standing around for quite a while waiting for Joe and smelled that sauerkraut so... had to have the Reuben). Haven't had that quality corned beef in quite a while... so tender and moist...

Man... Carol was jealous that we were going after seeing it on Check Please! I'll going to have to bring here there some weekend...

No no no no... this is *TOO* early...

A long story, but one that NEEDS to be told, becuase... THIS IS GETTING REDICULOUS...

A few weeks ago, I was at Lowes... and they had started displaying all their Christmas merchandise... I went to Home Depot - same thing.

At Walgreen's this week, you could find Halloween candy in one aisle, Christmas candy - and decorations - in the next aisle.

Today, I'm reading a great Chicago blog - Gaper's Block - and found something even more disturbing.

There's a station here in Chicago - WLIT 93.9 FM - that, every year, switches to 24 Christmas music during the season. They are scheduled to do it next Friday - November 9!!!!

There's a rock station here - WCKG 105.9 FM - that is a talk (sorta rock) station. They are actually pulling the plug on their format, dumping their on-air personalities, and starting something new... someday soon... and... they're not saying what it is... (rumors are saying that it will be "adult-contemporary music format for women between 25 and 54")

So. sometime later today, WCKG is going to start playing Christmas music until they figure out what they're doing! Today!

So... what does WLIT do? They want to get the jump on WCKG, so they start their 24-hour Christmas music format THIS MORNING - FRIDAY NOVEMBER 2!

TWO RADIO STATIONS IN CHICAGO - PLAYING CHRISTMAS MUSIC - 24 HOURS A DAY - STARTING TODAY, NOVEMBER *** 2 *** ?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!

This is CRAZY!!! Whatever happened to No Christmas Until After Thanksgiving!!!!!

UPDATE: WCKG didn't go Christmas... at least not yet... interesting idea: if they get WLIT to move off their regular Adult Contemporary programming earlier than they were going to, then perhaps they can make a grab at the WLIT audience when WCKG changes to a format similar to what WLIT NORMALLY has

33 cents

I've been hearing the news over the past week or so... and I kept seeing the prices go down... now I guess they're trying to catch up...

Gas prices are up 33 cents a gallon today compared to what I paid on Monday...

A cold *nose wiggle* *nose wiggle*

I have no idea why I had great satisfaction this morning, waking up and saying out loud "Rabbit, Rabbit!" - to get some luck... (with two nose wiggles from our two bunnies Indy and Chip, who are "meatloafed" in their cage keeping warm)...

It's great knowing I don't have to say"Tibbar, Tibbar!" tonight, Go checkout the Wikipedia entry on this: "Rabbit rabbit".
