Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

Dog napping jumped when the prices of dogs made a major leap. Pure bred dogs were rarely over 300 bucks, a few special breeds might reach 350 bucks, but then a lot of the dogs in a particular litter were only 150 to 250 bucks too. The price shot up like a bullet and now it will often cost around 900...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

This may sound odd, but I have nothing against the rich getting richer, when it does not come on the backs of the poor getting poorer as happens in socialist countries. Here in America, whether you agree with it or not, everyone has the same basic opportunity to get ahead. Even when they are down an...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

I've only been to China twice, both times with my brother on buying trips. Both times he had to hire a business exchange person to take his orders and figure out who could make the stuff for him. Even then, they rarely got an order correct. He ordered stuffed pool balls, like stuffed animals. They d...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

There are a lot of good kids out there, but they get everything on a silver platter so have no need to work to earn a few bucks. Even here where I currently live is considered a poor part of town now. Yet all the kids have Schmartz-Fonz, electric buggies or bikes which they rarely use. And most of t...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

I'm going back 40 years ago here. When it snowed, there was a group of four boys who went through our subdivision to shovel off the driveway and sidewalks, and patio if applicable. They only asked 5 bucks for the driveway and 2 bucks for the sidewalk, which was smart, because most people just gave t...

Re: Ordering Online

Where I lived in Creve Coeur I paid a small fee extra for them to pick up my cans from beside the garage. They would also take nearly anything I set between the two cans also. Many things they did not dump into the garbage truck. Instead they would hang things from the side of the truck. It was not ...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

I made some interesting designs on my old dot matrix printer, using characters like the @ sign. Some guys were even able to make photo images using only text characters that looked decent from a distance. In later years I had a dot matrix printer that could use paper or tractor drive. Using roll pap...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

I did BitCoin mining for four years using six computers, and never made enough money to even cover the electric the computers were using. I think there is some other way of doing it on the market these days where instead of mining, they are handling transactions instead. Not sure, because when I sto...

Re: Ordering Online

It is not uncommon to see things sitting by the road for a couple of weeks around here, because the metal gleaners don't want it. I saw a nice bookshelf I would have liked to nab, but with my condition I couldn't lift it into my Blazer myself. It was gone the next day when I drove by. So somebody go...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

I really think the only reason mom wanted to sell her house and move into a seniors apartment complex was because her friends moved into the one she chose. She just stayed in her room most of the time, and usually fixed her own meals, even though she was paying for the dining room meals. The friends...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

The few times I dealt with Chinese companies, I was buying items in bulk which might make a difference. But all they do is get it loaded into a container headed to the U.S. and even they don't care which port the way it seems. Another company at this end who accepted the containers, would unload the...

Re: Ordering Online

We have a guy in a pick-up truck who drives through our subdivision the night before the trash pickup. Here, we have to put our trash bin out the night before, even if they don't pick up until around 4 pm the next day. They only pick up what is in the bin, but since we know about the guy in the pick...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

One of my older computers here, no longer in service, had a humongous heat sink, about 6x6 square 3 inches high. Why they had such a big one I don't know. It definitely was NOT a powerful computer, hi hi. That's what the guy told me, he couldn't get a new mobo for the CPU I had. Since I was billed f...

Re: Ordering Online

I have a Snapper riding mower, but what I cannot do is the trim work. Never could find anybody to do just that for me. I made some changes in my yard so a push mower was no longer needed, so we gave that to a friend who had none. But the hedges and things like that still need cut back and I can no l...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

I already know about all the insect fragments and other things in our food, hi hi. If you have the proper diagnostic equipment, most mobo's will now tell you what is ailing them, hi hi. I had a computer that would be working fine and then suddenly just shut off for apparently no reason. I could chec...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

After a complaint to Amazon about a product I bought which I thought was from them, not a third party, they did handle the cheaper one for me and refunded me. The seller did provide me with a return mailing label, but I would have to pay the postage. The address to return it to for a refund was: She...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

They are building a new Amazon Distribution Center right here in Knoxville. I'll bet just outside the City Limits though to avoid double property taxation. Most of the things I have bought from Amazon, came from Amazon's warehouses. The few things I've bought that came from 3rd party sellers were dr...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

The computer guy who I used to build my computers, they work mainly with corporate Linux machines and servers. We have enough Windows laptop repair places who don't touch desktop computers around here anymore. They won't look at a Linux laptop either, or a MAC or the new specialty laptops. I guess t...

Salvation army often comes in a truck with a couple of folks to carry things out, if it is something they might be able to rehome. My wife finally made me get someone to do the mowing. he was supposed to be here today, but called and said he couldn't make it and would like to shift me from Tuesdays ...

Re: Ordering Online

I've moved some heavy objects by using logs as rollers as well. Large concrete tanks, and a couple of steel ones too. My two desks in my office cannot fit through even a 36 inch doorway assembled. I guess it would be possible if you could lay them on their back, but if you try that, there is a good ...
