    You don’t have the same taste buds either.


    Quite true, however other folks that I've talked to don't think that they taste the same either.

  2. Gotta have the vanilla wafers...otherwise it's just puddin' with bananas in it.


    Has anyone noticed that vanilla wafers, by themselves, don't taste the way they used to 20 years ago? It's like they forgot an ingredient or two.

    Don't much like filling it either.  A Saturday morning task.  Time and motion, opening the bottles once a week beats out opening them all every day, and it is pretty hard to forget to take the meds. Travelling, some places, it is a good idea to have the prescription bottles, particularly outside the country.


    I have two of the 7 day boxes. One for AM and one for PM. You're right on the money about filling once every seven days as opposed to opening them all everyday.

    Ever since my heart attack I have been on medication. One pill they had me on was a little pink triangle. After about the third refill it became a little pink round pill. Same thickness all the way through. Why did it change? Different manufacturer I presume.


    Another pill they had me on was a little pink pill, that tapered to the edges. It was thicker in the middle than it was at the edges - like a flying saucer. I opened the new bottle of them this morning. It's now an oval. About the size of a Benadryl but kind of pointed at each end, like a football. It was such a change that I peeled the label off the bottle to make sure they had given me the right stuff.


    The first time they gave me this it was just loose in a regular prescription bottle. But every time after that it has come in a sealed bottle from the factory, and then the pharmacy put their label on top of the factory label. So I peeled their label off to make sure that the factory label says it was in fact the drug I was supposed to be taking.


    But why in the world would they change the way it looked? I got to take the damn things no matter what they look like, so it's not for customer appeal. And I'm sure I'm not the only one that kind of freaked when they opened the new bottle.


    Why can't they leave well enough alone?


    Different manufacturers. I've been noticing it for a while now. If you really want to be leery of the prescriptions, take a look where the pills are manufactured. <_<

    The Chinese are buying farmland as fast as they can. Why do you suppose that is?


    Could it be to have leverage against us when war threatens? Imagine the impact of destroying millions of acres of crops, stored grain, beef and dairy herds overnight. If you think the Communist Chinese government is not in charge you are sorely mistaken.


    The Communist Chinese government is bank rolling most of the legal and illegal drug operations in the state of Oklahoma. Proof is in the identities of those arrested and others that have been found dead that are tied to the drug trade. Most have ties to the Chinese Communist Party.


    It's not just farmland in the middle of nowhere that they are buying. They are also specifically targeting farmland next, and in some case abutting, US military bases and major transportation hubs. It's not just farmland they are "innocently" buying and they aren't providing TikTok because they want to be humored either.

      ...... werksgrate ......... 'til you drive thru a swarm of bees .....  :mellow:


    Yep. That was one of the drawbacks of the wing windows of old. Great for giving a breeze to the driver or passenger but diverted wasps/bees in also. I got stung at least twice because of it. Another drawback was that they made it easy for someone to break into your car, although it wasn't all that hard to do anyway. I still wish wing windows were on vehicles though.

    First choice I think would be something chambered in .357 Magnum.  Lots of versatility in what you can feed it, therefore plentiful ammo.  Decent power for most applications.

    Second choice would be .22 LR.  Lots of ammo availability, low weight, low cost, can be used for small game, and even medium game with proper shot placement.  Short on power for defense against human predators, but when you figure that most self-defense uses don't involve pulling the trigger it's not likely to become an issue.  If it does, 6 or more shots to the face should "discourage" an attacker.


    I've never met or heard of anyone that wanted a 1/4" hole in themselves, let alone 6, 9 or 10 of them.

    Can still have 9 mm. Just got to work at it.




    For sure, 9mm in a revolver is entirely feasible as you have shown above and Bill shows below. I had a .357/9mm Blackhawk at one time. Don't remember why I sold it.

  9. It's a shame that the officer got injured while taking out the idiot driver.


    I saw a story today about a highway patrolman that quit the force after using the PIT maneuver while at interstate speeds on the wrong car. Seems he was after a white sedan, finally caught up with a white sedan (the wrong car) and spun him out causing the sedan driver to crash. Story and video below.



  10. I wouldn't go back there and I would tell the manager, in no uncertain terms, why I wouldn't be going back.


    Seems like there is getting to be more and more hidden BS "fees" everyday and it's not just restaurants. Forced gratuities at restaurants are one but there are plenty of other.


    I'm getting more and more intolerant (and vocal) about getting nickel and dimed with BS "fees"
