Re: A Steal at $28K

That is, indeed, quite the offer.

Only my lack of cash, and the fact that local roads, as well as road salt in the winter, would damage that car too quickly prevent me from seriously considering it.

But I've always been fascinated by cars of that era.

Re: More Stuff

Lots of divided highways in Texas. I grew up off of one of them. There's another north of Nashville heading for Kentucky. Amazing how with the enormous distance between the sides, an accident on one can STILL slow the other side down. Well, that would be because with the distance, people have to be...

Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

Good news/Bad news time: The bad news is that the Orange Tree... is kaput. Had a landscaper come out and look at it, and he pointed out a distinct lack of new growth. It's all "suckers", which means the tree is really dead. It's going to get ground down to a stump by this weekend. So it's not just ...

That's also a rather old video clip.
That may be so, but it was still new to me, and just as shocking as if I had seen it when it was first posted. So there. :P

I just hope the driver is not still as careless as when this was first posted... :roll:

Heard on the Laugh Again podcast, a quote of a joke told by George Verwer (sp?):

Did you hear YouTube, Twitter and Facebook are merging into one big time-wasting website? It's going to be called "YouTwitFace"!

Re: A Passing

Even after all this time, I can't get over the lack of tact shown by my supervisor... Then there's the Army story about the Sergeant addressing his troops. "All you married men can have furlough this weekend. Not so fast there, Wilson!" Some people simply don't know how to break bad news to others....

Re: A Passing

My condolences to Paul. It's never easy. Even if they had lived a full life. My older brother died, back in 96 (at age 32)... And my supervisor at work wins the cake in the worst way to announce it to someone! I had just gotten in to work. I was working at a call center, doing tech support for Canon...
