Since I'm hanging mainly on 20m working on VOTA (I finally snagged HI on 20m), I'll keep the list by the radio.   Would really be great if they were VOTA points as well.   I've become mostly a snob preferring to work VOTA points.   I'm about 170th in GA right now.

I need to eat something, so I'm eating more popcorn, and drinking Topo Chico Ranch Water. So far, I like it better than their Chilton cocktail. They make a Paloma cocktail too. I didn't see that in the cooler or I would have bought it, and maybe not both of these. If I ever see pre-made Swampwater at the store I'll try it too, and maybe have a Swampwater vs. Ranch Water taste test. I don't want to buy a bottle of Chartreuse and after one taste find out I can't stand it, so I won't be making my own Swampwater with this old recipe. I went to Rite Aid to buy bottled water that day, but none was on sale. So I bought 5 different kinds of pre-mixed cocktails in 4-packs. A man's got to drink something besides contaminated tap water.
Italian beef and gravy on a brat roll with hot giardiniera. It tastes good when I put the giardiniera on what I actually bought it for. But the beef tastes great without it too, so I have plain, au jus sandwiches too. I wasn't hungry enough to each a second sandwich for breakfast, and I don't make halves, so I dipped a roll in the "gravy" which is actually a broth. I have one without hot giardiniera on my plate right now, but may put some on the last half. I have bowl of beef and au jus here too. It's the same brand of Italian Beef shown on the Wikipedia page for it, Buona, Chicago's Original Italian Beef. If that doesn't look good to you, we can't be friends.  :D

Holy ship! That's a lot of watercraft! Amateur Radio isn't my kind of thing but, I took a quick look at the list out of curiosity. I see ships from all over Europe on the list, and the LS Huron too.

I looked at the Huron Lightship Museum online not too long ago, and really should visit some day. It's only a 65 minute drive east on I-69 to Lake Huron where it's docked. It was the last operating lightship on the Great Lakes, and was dedicated as a National Historic Landmark in 1990. Admission would only cost me $7.00, and the Thomas Edison Depot Museum, a 2 minute drive away, would be another $7. I could entertain myself all day for $14 + the price of gas. If that's not enough to occupy my time, the Fort Gratiot Light Station is another 4 minute drive, and the Carnegie Center, with the Kammer Cabin living history exhibit, is only a 3 minute drive the other side of the Huron Lightship Museum. That would be a good starting point and could take all day. If it did, I could see all the rest another day. The two furthest of the four points are an 8 minute drive apart. The $7 admission to each place is still cheap entertainment compared to amusement parks, which is just about the only other place I (used to) buy tickets to.

I'm going over the whole Museum Ships list to see if I get any more ideas for a day trip or vacation.

Watch the video before you read the lyrics, and post what you hear.

It sounds like, Just let me staple the Vicar when I watch this video, but not when I watch a video with the lyrics and I read along.

Just let me state for the record

At the wedding reception Saturday, one of the songs they played was We Are Family by Sister Sledge, and I heard, "Just let me staple the Vicar" or something that sounded similar to staple. I have no idea what the lyrics are supposed to be, but that's what I heard so I'm looking it up now.

P.S. Karaoke is a Japanese word meaning: You look like a dumbass.  ;D
