I have this empty space on my living room wall that would be the perfect place for a mounted bass. It's right above my fish tank and would look perfect.
I've never really seen my Mom sick. She's had colds before, but she has epitomized both strength and stubbornness. That's probably why she rarely had health issues - they were intimidated.
From now until mid-May, local fishing is at its best if you were to ask me.
The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season is officially under way at the Stockton 99 Speedway, and a couple of Manteca drivers are off to hot starts.

The easy part was getting rid of Mike Rice, something Rutgers had little choice in doing once the governor of New Jersey and the king of basketball weighed in on his videotaped transgressions.
One of the advantages of being unattached is the opportunity to set my own schedule. A side-effect is that I don't always plan really well, so Friday morning when I woke up and decided to go fishing, I ended up going north on highway 99 unsure of where I'd end up.
