you used the words "tote board" so i'm guessing you're a horse racing fan, no?

also you're from so cali.

so my ? is, does the del mar racetrack still use the radio slogan "make hay while the sun shines"

thought that slogan was great, when i was there making hay. LOL

I was thinking more along the lines of the Jerry Lewis Telethon tote board, but Del Mar is pretty cool so that works too.

I haven't heard that slogan but I just might have been on a different radio station.  The tv ads were pretty well done, bringing back the "Where the surf meets the turf" song while showing models from all the decades from then to now.

Just like gambling of any type, it's fun as long as you set the amount you are okay to lose for the session, whether it's the racetrack, casinos, or lotto. So, yup, I had fun while not making hay, but instead losing hay.  And since I was within my preset amount, I wasn't going what the hay.

    thanks again,mcginnin56,saved me from diggin through boxes & boxes of 45s,

    hmm. maybe i'll do it anyway just to see what else is in there that i forgot.

    well not just now, maybe when we get a snowstorm or somesuch.

    i'm sure theres some more one hit wonders in those boxes.

    Yes, good call on the band name, McGinnin.

    And hay, you should definitely go through those boxes even if it's just to find the Curley Shuffle again, but you'll probably dig up some other one-hit wonders.

    Can anybody say Kajagoogoo?

    The correct answer is:

    1) Sober: Barely, but yes

    2) Slightly tipsy: Unable to say it correctly

    3) Drunk as a skunk: Able to ONLY say Kajagoogoo

        That does it, now it's stuck in my head.  Too shy shy, hush hush, eye to eye.

        But as far as songs stuck in your head, it's not too bad.  I've had songs that I really don't like stuck in my head..Like you're walking around the office humming some song and you realize, "WTF?  I hate that song."

        And then you have to to cleanse the palate with something catchy like "Come on, Eileen" which is another one-hit wonder song, courtesy of Dexys Midnight Runners.  Or the Aha song "Take on Me" with that excellent animated video.
