  1. Nine Days Left! Just BUMPing this post. As of today, including checks being processed Family Rocks has been sponsored for $621.00 Total since 2003 has exceeded $24,000 in sponsors!! Thank you. (link in quoted part of message if you want to sponsor me)
  2. It's time for my annual request of my friends at Two Bills Drive to sponsor me in a fund raiser to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. I do not post a lot anymore, but I have been lurking since day one of this web site. Hopefully we will meet for a Garbage Plate for the Home Opener again this year. Many of you know I was diagnosed with MS way back in 1994, but thanks to advances in treatment that get better each year, I can live a relatively normal life. There was a time when a diagnosis of MS meant getting measured for a wheelchair, but things have greatly advanc
  3. But the 20% - Levon Helm - helped his Canadian brothers turn gospel + blues + rock into "Americana".
  4. Cancel Jeopardy before this would happen!
  5. I will be happy if the Bills win their next game, and I will try to take it a week at a time until there are no more games to play this season.
  6. Option 2 - family first. This is just my opinion, and it works for me. I have been saying "Wait until next year since 1967!
  7. It would be nice to see the Bills win today! How long since the Bills were AFC East Champions? 9,132 days
  8. I will take the Chiefs in Buffalo instead of their house any day! Personal mojo opinion! We lost a SB in Minneapolis.
  9. What music do you play? I strum chords but cannot really call myself a guitarist! 🙄 I just like to play.
  10. I was at that game in the lower end zone and the wind was blowing right at us! Weather went from rain to sleet to snow with brutal winds. It was still a fun game because I dressed warm and stayed dry. One of the punts went up in a nice arc and the wind just "slapped" it back to the punter!
  11. Isn't that the Bills fans unofficial motto? I have been waiting until next year since 1967. I do not wish the virus on anyone, but I REALLY do not want any Bills getting the virus because of economics!
  12. I first went to camp when it was in Blasdell!
  13. Let me know how you make out!
  14. from Yahoo sports: "The wide availability of Thursday’s Chiefs home opener against the Houston Texans has been an eyebrow-raiser across the ticket market. Not only because the Chiefs are coming off a Super Bowl win after the 2019 season and feature league centerpiece Patrick Mahomes, but also because Thursday’s prime-time game represents the kickoff to the 2020 NFL season and Kansas City was planning to limit the crowd to 16,000 fans."
  15. Makes it easier for the writers to have an additional character in residence.
  16. My name is Benson. He was the best do nothing Butler!
  17. Anyone have any luck with Spectrum DVR Cloud? I mostly just want to watch Bills games when it is convenient for me, and sometimes go back and watch a game more than once. I have the Spectrum App on my Roku, but was wondering about DVR Cloud - another $5 a month for cheapest version.
  18. After the quarantine started, retirement lost a lot of its positives! I used to go to the gym a few days a week, just to stay loose. I also would meet a friend for brunch about once a week, which kind of cancelled the benefit of the gym. I was using our local library Maker's Lab to scan old photos and digitize VHS tapes. My wife has a IN HOME daycare which continued since her work is essential. In the cold months, I pretty much self quarantined - everything was closed anyway.I spent quite a bit of time on Ancestry and virtually connected with a lot of family I did not
  19. Same to you, brother! We are managing well. I hope you are too!
  20. I lost my job of 27 years, when my company dissolved our department. I collected unemployment, worked contract jobs, part time, etc. But, it taught me that the company does not give a rats ass about you. No bitterness, it is about profit and loss. This just made me refocus that MY future was up to me, but it was a wacky decade getting through it all. I worry about the kids who miss their friends or are NOT receptive to the home schooling on a tablet classroom. They do not understand and some may never completely recover! If they are lucky they are in a healthy home with good parent
  21. We were able to raise $1,122.62 this year! Yvonne and me walked along a path and the beach at a Durand Eastman Park on Lake Ontario. The weather was perfect! I did not think we would do this well with all the craziness going on right now, but I thank God for all the support. Please be well and stay healthy! Love to all, Tom and Yvonne Family Rocks! ❤️ #VIRTUALWALKMS
