Does it make Brucey a bit hyperactive..?
Yes, all that chocolate can't be good for him.

It's Remembrance Day here in Canada.
Although I don't go to any of the ceremonies, I try to observe 10-15 minutes silence around 11:11am. I think it's an important little thing to do.

My dear dead dad was born in 1925. His father died when dad was 10 so he dropped out of grade 4 and started working in a quarry to help out the family.
When he was 16, after lying about his age to get into the Forces, he found himself in London during the Blitz.
He retired from the Air Force in the mid-70s.
He never talked about his experiences except near the end of his life, when exceptionally drunk. It seems a bomb landed near where he just happened to be standing and he went into shock. Luckily a local saw him standing there and pulled him out of the street and helped him get his act together.

He was quite a guy. Very quiet, very humble, loved to laugh, loved nature, wore plaid pants. I wish we could have talked about what he went through and his thoughts, but in a way the drinking and drunken stories kinda sum it all up, at least for me.

God love ya, dad; and thanks for your service. I do try to remember all this shit more than one day a year.

I think he has the constitution for it, definitely. I'm like that with chocolate milk too.

A male polar bear weighs about 1000 pounds, but I'm sure he could get down to 950 if he didn't drink so much pop.
Give him a Pepsi,  it'll kill his desire to ever have another soda again.

Hardly surprising, someone who can’t enjoy The Synth Era doesn’t like Pepsi.

You probably like NY style pizza (aka cheese and crackers), though.   Glad I've never tried a cigar, it must just kill taste buds.   Not sure why it affects the ears though.

Why am I not satisifed at winning $180.00 on the Lottery last night?  WHY do I keep bemoaning how I should have hit 5 of 6 or 6 of 6 numbers instead of a measly 4 of 6 numbers....???  :laughing guy:

One more wrong number and you would’ve won $0 instead of $180. You’re lucky!
