that's too bad wasabi.

i have been eating a ton of watermelon this summer. they say it has been one of the best years in a long time for watermelons, not sure why. i'd have to agree tho.

they are as sweet and bursting with "water" as i remember as a kid.

Have you seen those really small watermelons? I think they are from Thailand.

Once I ordered filet mignon at my favorite restaurant, The Coyote Bar & Grill. It had to have been the best beef entree that I have ever ordered. The meat was tender and flavorful. I was in heaven.

The 2nd sip of a beer is always a letdown. The first sip after opening the bottle is cold, crisp and spectacular...then it goes downhill with each sip thereafter.

LOL... are you sure? Sometimes that first sip tastes so good I have to have many, many more. Like when football is on.

Beer is one exception to the "law of diminishing returns" the more you drink the more you return to the john.

MJ, I'd drink the first sip of everyone's beer in a football stadium.

People certainly love their own brand, for sure.
