Re: Fight Back the Phishers

In the business world, the owner of a business would never hire a new employee then tell them they can set their own wage, vacation time, benefits, and raises. They would soon be out of business! The people were too lazy to go vote against the poly-TICK-ians demanding the same for themselves. They c...

Re: Secret Knowledge

They would instantly knock out the 'ly' word, and probably the word 'has' also.

Jimmy owns a gigantic red automobile. Would probably be more like what an editor would let pass.

Re: Good Vibrations

Like the other poly-TICK-ians, although only a businessman, I'm sure Trump will make billions from being president. That being said, I feel we are much better off with him being president than if Hillary would have got in. She would have given our country to the UN, and the Muslims would be busy wip...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I checked out a few on-line last night, more out of curiosity than anything else. I don't like the ones sold at the big-box stores. I've had a few minimal cheap Taylor brand that were either not accurate or didn't work very long. The one I liked was Ambient Weather WS2902, but a little above my budg...

Re: Microsoft Linux Distro

I wear tri-focal glasses. The bi-focal is set to the top of my desk, the tri-focal to the monitor under the desktop, and the normally infinity used to be set a 5 feet for my upper monitors. The eye doc did some different calculations, which drove the eyeglass maker nuts. He said I would get the same...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I know the weather stations have come a long long way over the years thanks to computers and electronic components.

You are starting to make me itch to get another one myself.

I'll rescind my China comment. According to this mornings news, they are on a rampage again. Blowing up churches and burning bibles.

I don't think they are going to get very far using those tactics!

Jimmy has a big red car. Jimmy has a red car and it is really big.
We would get killed by the editor if we used the second example, and killed again for using an 'ly word, hi hi.

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

So true Yogi. My grandfather spent his entire life trying to build up our city enough to get it on the map. He reached his goal while on his death bed. Never realizing what doors it would open. Only 1% of the populace are millionaires, yet over 50% of poly-tick-ians have become multi-millionaires, m...

Re: Microsoft Linux Distro

I still like having separate computers with their own display. Mainly because I can set them about doing a task while I do something else on another computer. Things that simply don't work if you use a KVM. That being said, I still like being able to have other computers I can use sitting at my desk...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Many eons ago, I had the Heathkit Weather Station. Some of the sensors, like temperature, were placed inside a wooden box with a roof and louvers on all four sides. The windspeed indicator was mounted on a fence pole across an open area of the yards fence, away from buildings and trees. The rain gau...

Re: Secret Knowledge

As a writer, we are taught to stay away from adjectives as much as possible.
Yes, there are a few that can be mixed around different ways, but it usually depends on the construct of the sentence.

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

I was raised in a town that was founded and ran for over a hundred years on Home Rule, this means without politicians, but there was an unpaid board of trustees. It went through all the growth stages of becoming a municipality, and finally a 4th Class City. This is when the poly-TICK-ians could get ...

Re: Microsoft Linux Distro

Our newest Windows 10 computer, the one I bought for my wife, is sitting up here in my office unused, except for displaying a few text documents while I'm writing. She is using a 10 year old Windows 7 hand-me-down from her son, which is ten times faster than the new computer, but still no where as n...

Re: Good Vibrations

I think the words Poly-TICK-ians, and Criminals are synonymous!

How does one become a multi-millionaire on a 150k a year salary, unless they are crooked and accept bribes?

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

The best I can ascertain is: Cities and States are Democracies, but the Country, and some Townships are a Republic.

Township is a confusing word because besides referring to an actual Township, it is sometimes used to denote an organized town. I see this a lot doing genealogy work.

Re: Secret Knowledge

On the list you displayed above, they are missing 'number' as the first item, although number isn't actually an adjective, it must precede the list.

My phrase reads almost the same though: Seven lovely little old rectangular green french silver whittling knives.

Re: Merry Christmas!

Had a wonderful Christmas!
All the vultures came and dined, and left the place looking like a 3rd world country, hi hi.
Everyone knows what I like, I ended up with 7 jigsaw puzzles to assemble.
Nope, no work on Christmas day.

Re: Microsoft Linux Distro

I used Microsoft for years. That being said, I still preferred my Apples and MACs, mainly because I could do my work much simpler on them. At the time I outfitted my company with MACs, some of the work we were doing was easy on a MAC and nearly impossible on a PC without going through several steps ...
