  1. I’m thinking it’s for the nausea after eating the parts. Then the donuts will taste better for dessert.
  2. Walnuts from the store, or walnuts fresh from the tree? We get walnuts in our yard from the neighbors tree. I broke open the husk of one to see how big a whole nut was. My fingers were stained for two weeks from the inner shell. That stuff would make a stain for deep scratches.
  3. Tom Cruise hasn’t anything to do with this series. Alan Ritchson (right) plays Reacher. He looks the part.
  4. I don’t know small claims court works in your state, but in Kansas, attorneys aren’t allowed. If you lose, all that’s lost is your time and a filing fee. And possibly gain a lot of aggravation. The upside is you could cause a lot of aggravation for the driver. So in CA, you can’t sue the insurance company in small claims court? Has your insurance company been any help on how to dispute their value?
  5. No, the meme was excellent. And a perfect set up for the joke!
  6. Here’s what I heard, then and now. Stick with it past 30 seconds or so…
  7. Betcha the older one has a bigger bed. And it didn’t need a folding staircase in the tailgate.
  8. Great analogy! I remember slivers of paper inserted in the spool to indicate the bookmarks. Trouble is my brain won’t accommodate slivers of paper.
  9. Of course. But it must be kept in mind that attorneys don’t charge a flat fee for disputes. The meter is always running, or they get a percentage of the take. Either way, the plaintiff has to consider whether the expense results in a net gain. My experience with attorneys is that when all is said and done, the final cost bears little relation to what was said at the front end. My rule of thumb is that if the stakes you’re trying to recover are less than $10k forget about a lawsuit. You could end up with a net loss after legal fees, or so little gain that it wasn’t worth the aggravation. Small claims court is a viable option in many states.
  10. Dontcha just want to slap that spoiled look right off her face?
  11. Or maybe it’s just that my brain is full. If you shove another piece of information in one side, one falls out the other side.
  12. The other thing that happens is once you remember why you went into a room and go back, you get distracted by something else, which deflects you from your original task. “Oh, there are my car keys!”
  13. Of those recommending an attorney, how many of you have actually hired one under these circumstances and come out ahead when it’s all over?
  14. Season one was superb. Season two, to me, looks like every other cop show on TV with the same gunfights, preposterous car chases and plot lines. Even the look of the film is the same with that dark, blue and black coloring. I quit watching after the 5th episode. There, I said it. Flame away!
  15. Nope. I have to leave the room to remember why I went there.
  16. I eat the stale popcorn at our American Legion post. My popcorn palette isn’t sophisticated enough to make a recommendation.
  17. I’m watching Air America (1990) tonight starring Mel Gibson, Nancy Travis, Robert Downey and others. So I recognize the actor playing the role of the Vietnamese general as the guy who played Cato in the Pink Panther movies (Herbert Tsangtse Kwouk). But for the life of me, I couldn’t remember the name of the detective movies that made Mel Gibson famous. I had to Google “Mel Gibson detective movies” to realize it was “Lethal Weapon”. I used to able to recall that trivia in an instant. Not anymore. Yeesh!
  18. If they’re just coming in, why are they being sold on an auction site instead of dealer?
  19. Chain and bar shot were hell on rigging and sails. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_shot
  20. Galvanized won’t bend like that. If you zoom in, you can just see the sweated joint under the M of Plumber.
  21. I’d be wary of buying one of those from an auction site.
  22. I went to their site. There’s a free 7-day trial, but after that there’s a subscription fee.
