Re: More Stuff

More fun with quotes: There Are Two Kinds of People In The World: Those Who Think There Are Two Kinds of People In The World and Those Who Don’t -- Robert Benchley Someone once said that there are only 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don’t. “For my grandfa...

Re: Movers, i kill you filthy

But at least they got all their stuff, right?

You know, silver lining, and all that stuff?

I wonder if any of their normally averse to water items still functioned, after that (you know, having had time to properly dry out...)

Re: Medusa's Story (Formerly Patreon Only) 2019-08-13

"They" also call Mesquite a west Texas town, and it's on the other side of me from Plano. And the town of West is about 70 miles due South from where I live, so where outsiders consider the various geographical parts of Texas to lie compared to where they actually are is considerable off. As they s...

Re: Apologies for downtime

I have looked for it, but can't find it for now... I'm pretty sure it was Ray Stevens who had a song in which he ended up getting "that day and night, satellite, cable TV service"... In that song, he mentions at one point watching a show where "There's this little woman, who talks real rough, and t...

You mean, he's not 65, he's only 45 with 20 years of experience, right?

Re: Bad Jokes II

Looking for a sample of the road sign I was talking about, I found this: https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5685/24078123465_867626b7a2_b.jpg I don't know what's more disturbing: the poor grammar (Watch out for OUR children , IT could be yours), the disturbing imagery, or how badly bent the sign is... :r...

Re: Recent on-line ad

You make very intelligent points, as to what would make a good vehicle for a senior.

Essentially, it's everything this pictured vehicle is not... :lol:
(Not to mention the price, given the brand, which would be way out of reach of a fixed-income senior... :roll: )

Two questions:

1) What vehicle brand uses a trident as its logo?
2) Just what makes these crossovers perfect for seniors?

Re: Photo Album

That makes more sense. Thank you for the info and the nice reference pic.

One reason I've never really been interested in exotic travels, is that there is so much to see in our "own backyard"... This this further proof of such.

Thanks to all that voiced appreciation of my feeble attempts at photography. The altitude we were messing around at was between 7-9K ft depending on location. On the way back I traversed Monarch Pass on US 50- 11,312 ft. Highest elevation I've been in a vehicle was over Imogene Pass between Telluri...

I keep wondering why people insist on advertising to all drivers that their children are mentally handicapped. They keep saying "SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY".
Or how about advertising loose morals? I've seen signs that tell people to slow down, as the child they see might be theirs.

Re: Apologies for downtime

I can't remember how many words per minute I typed, back in high school, but I can attest to the reusability of the skill... It's so much easier (and faster) to touch type a long text than to hunt and peck... It's particularly useful when you are trying to either transcribe written material (i.e. a ...

Re: Apologies for downtime

Typing was my worst subject in high school. Grades kept dropping, because I got up to 35 wpm (on a manual typewriter) and plateaued for the rest of the semester. Gods being the evil-minded jokers that they are, my doom was sealed. :twisted: That seems somewhat ironic, considering your username whic...

Re: Vehicles

Out of curiosity, how long does it take a motorcycle to grow to full maturity? :P The worst part about warning posters is that they usually reflect something that has occurred in the past... Just like at work, in the area where they wash the busses, I once saw a warning not to pee into the drainage ...
