    Election Costs

    I turned 21 in 1962. I started voting right away. What I don't remember is all the effort to collect money for elections. Back when radio and television was free for candidates. Somewhere in the intervening years I get fund raising letters from all around the country to help their candidate...

    Heavenly Bodies

    I went out on our porch about 8:45 EST. In the sky just north of west at about latitude 43 degrees is a planet. Least wise I think it is because it is not twinkling at all. Really bright. Take a look anyone and see if you can figure out what it is. Thanks.

    Is it Forum or My Computer???

    For the last week or so when I first go to use the Smiles my computer locks up for about 5 or 10 minutes. Then it returns to normal and I can then use the Smiles.

    Diabetes Commercials YUK!

    In general I don't care for commercial. Especially since they are now at 30% of the viewing time. My favorite commercials to bash are the diabetic medicine commercials. I have been a type 2 since 1991. I have never had to take insulin or medicine to control my blood sugar. When I was...

    What Happened to the Internet?

    Is it just me or have others been dissatisfied with search results? In the good old days search returns would be interesting in that I made the decision of what fit my search. So there was even room for a search to not be worded exact. The other day I entered a name from my caller ID. The...

    Gardening and Storing the Harvest

    In 2013 I purchased some property. And on it was a earth shelter house. Since at that time my brother and I were swapping horror stories about what is going to happen to the economy I thought it would be a good off the grid place. It has woods for heat, and land for garden and animals. One of...

    Telemarketing New Low

    This morning the phone rang and the caller id said it was a local business. I answered the phone and immediately the electronic message played that you goofed and only we can help you restore your good credit card rating. Seems to me this whatever it is broke two laws. Robo dialing and using...

    THE DOOR WAS DENTED!

    My best friend and I used to joke about, "if it wasn't for bad luck we wouldn't have any luck at all" About a month ago the freezer (packed with food) quit working. Son unplugged it to see if resetting the mother board would help. It started right up flawlessly. So we forgot about it...

    I was sick and tired of all the commercials on normal cable so I switched to Cspan. US Senate. I watched about 15 minutes before I turned off the tv. The donkeys and the elephants were trading shots at each other. What were they discussing? The donkeys were talking about how expert they...

    Careful!

    In the middle of December 2016 I was waiting in line at a small town post office. Nothing else to do so I started talking to the man in line in front of me. We had just gotten a couple inches of snow and the forecast called for about 6 more inches. I jokingly said to the guy that we ought to...
