Please excuse the absence of posts over the past 24 hours. I had a very complicated computer wireless probem that nuked my ability to get on the internet and as a result I lost my wireless abilities, my telephone service and spent too many hours juggling wires, contacting Linksys support, and coming away with a guy on Linksys who led me by the hand through the fixing process, and when he saw the problem, He had a very very very difficult accent but I did hear him say "feex it fur nannty nnaa dolla and nanny nan cents" I hung up on the guy. I can buy another wireless router for under 50 bucks. What is this world coming to? Anyway, I am back in business and with this weekend's American-Italian Festival arriving this weekend, I thought an old Tom Glover column on "the Burg" would be in order.

Where it says Race Course, is that where the old fairgrounds was? At such an early date?
RON: NO, THE "RACE COURSE" REFERRED TO ON THE MAP IS THE QUINTIN RACE COURSE IN VILLA PARK.

Tom, Thanks. Happy Birthday, and thanks for all you do with this
site, for everyone, but especially for those of us that don't/can't get
back home, very often.
When you were in the Army, you must have
been overseas, at least once, and thus heard things like this, like I
heard in Korea and Japan: "feex it fur nannty nnaa dolla and nanny nan
cents". Still laughing. I admired them for learning English, and wished
I had learned more of their language, then just the phrases that most
GIs pick up.
