I had to swing by Target on my way in to work this morning. (We used up all our ice melt last weekend.) On my way out of the store, I realized --- there was no music playing in the store. Yay Target!

What do I mean by "I Believe"?

I've titled this series "What I Believe" so I should start out by defining what I mean by this.

I introduced the kids to the classic game of Mastermind tonight. It brought back fond memories of playing on the big table at the games department of Fortunoff's as a kid. I've Googled without success for a picture or even a description of the big table version --- it was the size of a foosball table, I guess, with half-spheres for the pegs: the colored ones were about the size of grapefruits and the scoring ones about the size of oranges. It was mostly used as a sales demo attention-gatherer --- if I recall correctly, you could buy it for about $1,000 but they really expected you to buy the regular edition with the Orson-Welles-like spy on the cover.

Anyone else remember this?
