This was from Mountain Jam 2010 which they celebrated Levon's 70th birthday.  Great seeing how happy he was up on stage, knowing what he had to deal with lately.  God Speed Levon!

That is sweet!
My question is...
Can you fill it?
pretty sure i can

Weigh yourself now. In a year's time weigh again. I hope you have lots of friends to drain the thing.
yeah, you're pretty much obliged to host an Oktoberfestival this year :)

The Pub / Re: How long before there are no spelling or grammar rules?

And I will go to my grave defending the double space behind a period.

Why? not to be argumentative, I cringe whenever someone says something is 'very unique' or, even worse, 'Somewhat unique' as the meaning of the word precludes that kind of qualification. but a double space after a period is just an arbitrary rule with no actual practical use. Perhaps it had one in the past but I can't think of what it would be. The full stop is a full stop. to add an extra space is just wasting bits at this point.

I don't the lack of a double space is a big deal, but you are supposed to capitalize the beginning of a sentence.  :D

We ALL get in a hurry sometimes, but you can easily spot the blatant abusers.

Yes, indeed you can.

To me it makes things easier to read, particularly when there is a need to skim.

Nice lesson, even the happiest among us go through bitter times. Seems he was able to work through it and get to a good place.  Created a hell of a good beer in the process. Cheers!

Yeah, my first reaction to this was "well, bummer". Second reaction was "thank god they won't drag him out every year for New Year's now." It was just sad, although I'm fairly certain that Dick was the primary reason he was still out there.

I caught a few minutes of last years show... painful to watch.

Black IPA, lame
India Black Ale, okay
American Black Ale, not bad
Cascadian Dark Ale; If it's made in Cascadia by Cascadians, with water from the Cascade watersheds, malt produced in Cascadia (Great Western or Gambrinus) and hops grown in Cascadia (most all domestics), and yeast cultured in Cascadia (Wyeast) then it's a fricken Cascadian Dark Ale if that's what the brewer want's to call it. 
If for BJCP purposes it's American Black Ale, big deal.

And remember, sometimes it's easier to beg forgiveness than to ask permission. :)
I love that one.

Running is bad for your knees and joints.   

I disagree.  Running with poor form is bad for your knees and joints. Humans are made to run. Unfortunately, most of us have devolved away from our intrinsic physical capability.

Well, good on ya for stepping up to a healthy challenge. But as Ron hinted you need to train and you should really start slooooooow. If cardiovascular activity has been light for you for some time, you'll put your frame and your heart at risk if you go after it too hard, too fast.  The second thing I would offer is that YOU have to really want to do it. For whatever reason that motivates you, if being competitive with your buds is enough that's great. If you half-ass it though, don't expect great let alone enjoyable results.  Good luck, you can do it!
