  1. Praying for you Fiddy. Hurry back.
  2. This is one of many things I did not know. Hope the copy/pastes works. Auburn University And Birmingham-Southern College Began In Talladega, 1854 Historical Marker (hmdb.org) Talladega in Talladega County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central) Auburn University And Birmingham-Southern College Began In Talladega, 1854 Photographed By Tim Carr, January 18, 2009 1. Auburn University And Birmingham-Southern College Began In Talladega, 1854 Marker Inscription. By action of the Alabama Conference of The Methodist Episcopal Church, South in session at Talladega, December 13-18, 1854, Auburn University and Birmingham - Southern College were born. The delegation resolved to “have a college within the bounds of our Conference.” While the intent was to start a single college by and for the Methodist Church, intense rivalry between eastern and western sections of the state over the location of the school resulted in two institutions: the East Alabama Male College in Auburn and Southern University in Greensboro. Both schools were chartered by the state legislature in 1856, and both struggled to survive during the Civil War. The College at Auburn was transferred from the Church to the state in 1872, and it became the land-grant Agricultural & Mechanical College of Alabama. In 1899, its name was changed to the Alabama Polytechnic Institute and, in 1960, to Auburn University. Southern University at Greensboro merged with Birmingham College in 1918 to form Birmingham - Southern College, maintaining a church - related status from its beginning to the present.

  3. The question is, can little bird shoot the PBR faster than you can drink them? I'm thinking it's not even close.
  4. "You'll miss me when I'm gone, right guys?... Guys????
  5. This thread is going to kill me if I don't walk away. I'm the type that has to try to find the answers. Great question on no Roman numeral for zero so this is what the all knowing and all powerful internet says (romannumerals.org). I learned something today, I think I'll go home now. "the Romans didn’t have a symbol for the number zero (0). Because Roman Numerals System was developed for mostly knowing the price of goods, and to trade. So, there was no need for a symbol to represent zero. Instead of the number zero, the word “nulla” (the Latin word meaning "none") was used by the Romans."
  6. Not BBQ but we Sous Vide our steaks then sear on a very hot cast iron pan, nothing better. Vacuum seal the steak with butter & herbs, sous vide to 129 Deg F for medium rare then sear for 30-60 seconds each side, yum. No resting needed and perfectly cooks. It properly renders the fat too.
  7. I wonder if that works like Roman numerals. i.e. when I proceeds (i.e. IX) it subtracts? So a Lieutenant General would be less of a full General than a Major General. I just made that up but makes sense to me. Things we wonder about!
  8. Prayers for your whole family but specially for positive results for James from this clinical trial.

  10. Prayers lifted for Brenda and all those affected by her illness.
  11. I can see the arrow to the right but it does not do anything. Can't swipe either but the "View All" works. Never used this feature so can't compare to pre-upgrade. Using Edge on Android
  12. I seem to be missing the "k" after the number of posts. I see it on everyone else's???? By the way, can anyone explain what the "Submit Reply" button is for? Where's the "lurker" badge?
