Good Morning!

It’s finally Friday the end of the work week for most of us. I’m looking forward to a weekend of working in the yard and getting caught up on Netflix series and stuff I have DVR’ed but haven’t had the time to watch. What are your Friday plans besides cutting out of work early?

Around the DN since our last thread:

We come to today’s media selection: Pearl Jam - Corduroy

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the venison chili and as always, Welcome Aboard and Skol Vikings!
