Open line

Your turn. But don't miss eyewitness coverage of the turkey drop at Yellville. I presume Dustin was in hot pursuit.

And I think I got a look today at the future of Arkansas's Bangalore. (You knew, didn't you, that Arkansas was the closest Hewlett-Packard could come to a third-world country without flying over an ocean and thus we got picked to relocate H-P service facilities from cities where costs, mainly labor, are higher.) Anyway, I spent a couple of hours on-line with an H-P service representative today trying to get a scanner to work. So sorry. A hardware problem apparently means my now out-of-warranty scanner/printer is mostly worthless. But she would be so happy to sell me a much advanced model and deliver it within one business day. No, it won't use the same ink cartridges.
