    Yeah i agree.  How do you teach a dog to do that?  I want all of my dogs to start doing that. 

     

    No teaching involved; he quickly grasped the connection between eating and getting his bowl filled, and we didn't have to show him how one led to the other.  Dog was smart as a whip, and a big cuddle buddie.  Loyal to a fault.

  2. We're  fortunate to be by the ocean; mosquitos don't like salt water or wind, and we rarely see one.  As in all things having to do with Nature, there are trade-offs - we suffer miserably in August from greenheads and deer flies - miserable biting, blood-sucking creatures that take a piece of flesh and skin when they bite, and will harass you in the yard or even out on the boat.  Thankfully, they are slow and big, and if you are alert, you can usually smack them into a green splat.

  3. For those who have a difficult time seperating factual history from dramatic fiction...not that such a warning will mean anything to such uninformed individuals.  It's there to protect the broadcaster from claims of unwokeness.

    Why don't stores offer discounts for self check out?  After all, you're doing what they should be doing and doing it for free.

     

    HA!!!  Remember the early days of self-serve gasoline?  If you pumped it yourself, you got it for a nickel less per gallon.  All they were doing was getting you used to pumping it yourself, and gradually weaning the attendents from the payroll.  Before you knew it, there was no one to wash your windshield, and no price differential between full service and self serve.  In fact, there was no more full service.

     

    Things change.

    And yet they don't see any correlation between this and loss of sales to the web.  At one time I swore I'd never buy anything on line, but now about 75% of my none-grocery stuff comes from the net.

     

    It's no longer a "loss" of sales to the net; it's a determined effort by retailers to drive sales online, enabling them to reduce human, real estate and store inventory overhead.  It's the Amazon model.  As for unhelpful employees, training and intelligence cost money that many retailers are unwilling to spend.

    Keep in mind if the price goes up enough fracking and shale deposits become profitable again. SD and West TX get to see the oil booms come back.

     

     

     

    That's assuming that the Biden controlled EPA allows fracking.....

  9. I had one of the best days of my life this past Sunday in Chapel Hill, NC, when my son was married to his best friend and true love.  It makes you feel young again, and inspired with hope for the next generation.  And the in-laws have warmly accepted him, despite the fact that he's a Yankee. ;) Both are UNC grads.

    By happenstance I had just finished setting up a crock pot with pork, onion,  garlic,  carrots, celery,  sweet  potato  Worcester sauce,  and Pepsi.

     

    Hey SDJ: 

     

    "Worcester" is a city in central MA; if you are from around here, it is pronounced "Woosta"; if you are a tourist or in the out-of-town news media, it's "War-chess-ter";

     

    "Worcestershire" is a seasoned sauce used in cooking; that's "Woostasheer" for locals and folks in the know,  and  "War-chess-ter-shyer" for the rest.

     

    And there is no connection between the city and the sauce, except that they both took their names from the city of Worcester, England.

    While your suggestion is valid and humorous I do understand what aging does to people. I also understand that people should know their limitations and react accordingly when their limitations become a liability, danger or an incumbrance to others. 

     

    Just wait, my friend...just wait. I guarantee that in a couple of years, when faced with the same issues in your own performance, you will cling to that driver's license like it was a lifeline.  Hardest thing my Dad ever did was give up his license...and then only after it was abundantly clear that he could not function.  I'm sure that there were a few youngsters behind him during the prior couple of years that were swearing at him for being an "incumbrance".  I would respond like your the guy in your post - driving slow is not against the law in most places, and a little courtesy and understanding is DUE to older folks.

    I have always wondered if old people that drive slow were young people that drove slow.
    I actually asked an old guy that at Rite Aid last year as he exited his car after I had to follow his slow a** into and through the parking lot. 
    He had the strangest response. He told me to do something with myself that’s physically impossible. 
    I told him to make America safe again and buy a freakin’ bus pass. 

     

    Geez, Pat....the clock runs on all of us, eventually.  Your countdown to retirement is actually an indicator of when you can expect to suffer the same indignities of old age as that fellow does.  Add in your multiple injuries from cycling, and you are probably looking at a few restrictions on your speed and agility.

     

    I truly hope you age more gently, but next time you are behind a grey headed driver, picture them as your own Dad or Grandad, and have a little compassion. 

     

    Take it more slowly, and you'll have a more harmonius outcome....B)

    Do you recall what year this was...?  :)

     

    And I wonder if it'd still be legal in a Subaru Brat~?  :rolleyes:

    Subaru Yama Yagi!!!!

     

    Well, almost...I just like saying the name.  Had an uncle with the Yama Yagi version of the Brat.  Had the decal of an angry goat on the back.  People asked "What kind of truck is that?"  He replied, in his best  Toshiru Mifune voice,  "Yaaamaa Yaaagii!!!!"  Cute little scramblers.....all came standard with 4-wheel drive.   The two rear seats in the bed allowed Subaru to claim that they were passenger vehicles, not trucks - and escape the 25% tax on imported trucks.

    That looks photoshopped to me. I've never seen a dog carry anything in its mouth, where the item was all sticking out one side of the mouth. If all you could see was Pooh's back legs, or his head, because most of his body was in the dog's mouth and the other end of his body was on the other side of the dog's head, that would be believable.

     

     

     

    Oh, I don't know about that......
