Re: eurovision

You should tell this story on FB. Maybe it will become a fad. LOL

Re: not just US...

I would point out that the UK, England in particular, was victimized by Hitler and his Nazis. They know what it's like to be on the receiving end of carpet bombing. I would also point out that gun ownership is prohibited for the most part and highly regulated for those who choose hunting as a sport....

Re: Safe Handling

The climate environment in the garage isn't like inside the house. I'd be concerned about corrosion of the internal locking mechanism first of all, and then who knows what the gas fumes, and temperatures ranging from -10F up to 110F could do to the finish and mechanisms. Plus, do I really want to go...

Re: eurovision

I never was the stereotypical rebellious teenager, but I did have my disagreements with the generations ahead of me. I think it boiled down to learning custom, tradition, and values more so than how to deal with the everyday challenges of life. There is some comfort to be had in the tried and proved...

Re: not just US...

I saw a picture of a huge pile of shoes on FB yesterday. The caption was something about them belonging to the Jews in WWII Europe who gave up their guns and were promptly escorted to the "showers." Somehow that is supposed to be the argument against any legislation to regulate or ban guns that peop...

Re: Safe Handling

I have thought about asking a neighbor to help. It could be a bit awkward, however, given the weight of the problem and the fact that I'm only on a hand-waving status with anyone nearby. I've not thought about a car jack, but that's an interesting idea should I be able to figure out the leverage inv...

Safe Handling

When we moved down to Missouri a lot of important paperwork was created. This was added to the existing papers we kept in a safe deposit box at our local bank. Well, actually, all the important papers and family jewels are currently sitting in a file cabinet at the moment because we've not gotten ar...

Re: london pics

I've not been to Photobucket in ages. The last time I was there the site was nearly impossible to navigate. It took hours to make a simple album that I could show to the public. While it's not exactly a hosting service for photographs, I discovered that Tumblr is easy to use when you have some pictu...

Re: eurovision

I still recall wondering why old people think the way they do. At the time I figured I'd never be so nearsighted in my thinking. Well, here I am on the brink of being one of those people I criticized so many years ago. I just smile at those youngsters knowing they too will be old like me some day.

Re: not just US...

It's interesting to listen to the Right Wing Nuts expound upon their philosophies. You have been around this kind of bulletin board for as many centuries as I have, and those extreme Right Wing-ers have been with us since the dawn of the Internet. I'm sure you would find some interesting reading in ...

Re: london pics

If shrinking is too much work for ya, and you happen to have them up on some cloud server somewhere, maybe you can just link us to where they are stored. Of course that would reduce the comments you could make with each picture, but at least we could see what you saw at the party city. :mrgreen:

Re: eurovision

We are living in an era more than a couple generations beyond the '40s crowd. Naturally, I'd expect each new round of progeny to have it's own ideas about social structures and all. The differences, however, have grown exponentially over the decades. I was born in the '40s, but that's about all that...

Re: not just US...

I don't know if it's a stereotype or not, but the word on the street is that racism is practiced more openly in England (probably the entire UK) than it is elsewhere in the world. The defense for that bias is interesting. Brits have a heritage that goes back many centuries. There is a feeling for a ...

Re: Flight MH370

The speculation about what happened to flight MH370 goes on. All the searching has ceased and nobody has come up with an official explanation. However, the Australian version of the news show 60 Minutes assembled a "team of experts" to analyze the flight and what little is known of it. They conclude...

Re: not just US...

I believe that what we know as racism is everywhere. A comment I read many years ago noted that there is only one race, i.e., the human race. Apparently anthropologists don't get the philosophy behind that observation and have divided us into at least 5 different races: Caucasoid (White) race. Negro...

Sex On The Job

The Daily Wire reports: The law states that it is illegal for a Kansas cop to have sex with someone pulled over for a traffic violation or someone detained in a criminal investigation. Until recently there was no such law, and it was perfectly legal to do the dirty deed while on the job. It seems th...

Half naked Cypriots would, of course, garner a lot of votes. :mrgreen: I'm pretty much a curmudgeon when it comes to movies, television, and popular music.

Re: not just US...

I monitor Imgur and have commented on a few posts there. It's all done in the space below the video/images. The thing about racism is that it was not taken the same way back in the roaring twenties as it is these days. Racism was simply an accepted fact of life until somebody figured out that people...
