    First off thanks for the h/t! I hate to bring it up but that was a Buddy Holly song at the end of the episode. More foreshadowing.

    Alan West = Nutbag. He just wants to hate something very loudly.

    Adam Sandler came up a few notches in my book last night. I still won't go see his movies, but he paid a fine tribute to Dave.

    I thought the SHIELD finale was really great. But I have to admit, I missed the Breaking Bad reference – what was it?

      It was when they trapped No Eyes in that room and he could no longer teleport out. He asked how was that possible, and Fits says, "Science, biatch". I know it was spelled that way because I had closed captioning on.

        Haha – perfect – now I remember that! I chuckled then, and I just chuckled again. Well done, SHIELD writers.

        I also liked how they continued/incorporated the Marvel Phase 2 requirement that a character lose a hand, since Phase 2 is the "Empire Strikes Back" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's pretty amazing what they've done to combine all of these concepts/properties into one cohesive unit.

    I'd be interested in knowing what WifeGeeding used as argument points/info resources for getting your tax assessment reduced. Like condition issues, comp prices in the area (did she use an online source for info) etc.

      We're lucky that a local realtor will leave a list of what houses sold for over the past year in our neighborhood. She does this for all the residents in our community and attaches a nice little calendar with it. But even if we didn't have that, we would search for what houses are selling for in our neighborhood and find several with similar square footage and use that as data. We'll also check out the country appraisal district's website and look up houses in the area that are similar to ours. Each year the tax increase is insane, sometimes $50-60 more than the previous year, so just going into it, we know they've already inflated the value so much that there has to be some wiggle room.
