    Differences in the way we think

    That explains why she was standing behind me on the top of the steep steps telling me to look down..I’ll get her back when I’m gone . I haunt her and switch the tv to the Progressive commercials with Flo that she hates..

    Dear Subaru ...

    I had a Pontiac that required removal of the air conditioning unit to replace the spark plugs..

    Differences in the way we think

    So the other day "my" life insurance policy came in. It's a small policy that I purchased years ago when the kids were small. It's in addition to a policy that I carry through work. My wife commented that she paid "my" policy. I laughed and said , " No it's your policy. " She looked at me with...

    How many tries do you give a restaurant ?

    We have a local restaurant that is always busy no matter what evening it is. With that said we have tried it twice and found the meals and service are not that great. In fact, the last time we went the food was cold and the waiter was rude. We are not picky and I can count on one hand the times...

    Imperial Shaving

    I don't know if this is the correct place to post this, but It seems one of the original brick and mortar as well as online vendor (Imperial Shaving) has closed. I am curious if anyone knows when or what happened.

    Finally, Justice for a bad driver..

    I have an outside sales territory and for that territory I drive an average of 40k miles per year. I drive the speed limit with the flow of traffic and try to follow the laws of common sense. Yesterday I was forced off the road into the berm by a reckless driver literally going 90 in a 55 zone...

    Can't touch this.. or that.. or anything...

    Spot on, I feel this is a time when we have lost perspective on simple issues. Kids need to be protected, not over protected. Have some fun, skin a knee, ride a bike, do something, anything outside. With that said, our grandson is a handful. He came into the world at 31 weeks and 2.5 lbs. We...

    Can't touch this.. or that.. or anything...

    Well Chris, Actually the thread started out not about kids being soft, it was started as a observation made during a visit to a school and kids not being allowed to be kids. After telling a couple friends about our experience, they related an incident that happened at their church. My friend...

    Can't touch this.. or that.. or anything...

    Well put!! and this is exactly why HR departments are a nightmare to work in. Many, but not all kids were raised to think they were so special that criticism was never given. Now they are in the job market and coping skills were never developed. Everything, even the smallest comment is perceived...

    Dialogue with an antique shop owner

    We have an antique store by us that is more of a museum than a shop. The items have been displayed so long that the ink on the price tags has faded and the tags have yellowed with age. I rarely go there unless I have time in-between appointments and need to kill a half hour or so. I just...

    Can't touch this.. or that.. or anything...

    Last week we went to Grandparent's day at my Grandson's elementary school. We were walking around and he was showing us the various parts of the school. When we were outside I asked him what kind of games they play on recess. He said they mostly swing on the swings and sometimes they play...

    They don't make 'em like they used to

    Many builders have gone to 24 on center for framing instead of 16. A friend of mine that is in the industry told me that some of the bigger builders have requested to go to 30. I can't imagine that something with that big of a span would stand a chance of lasting and not have major structural...

    Ooohhh that smell !!

    We went away for a couple weeks and upon returning we opened the door to our home and noticed an odor that wasn't present before we left. I don't know exactly how to describe it, but it had almost a moldy, dead mouse odor. We searched high and low with no success and finally i decided to check...

    Groundbreaking - Goodbye Fuel Oil

    [Q Fortunately, they did not hit water or bedrock. Yesterday we got a waiver (not exactly a permit) to allow the electrician replace the 100 amp breaker panel with a 2OO amp one. Today I phoned the power company to get a work order number for them to interrupt the service when the electrician...

    Groundbreaking - Goodbye Fuel Oil

    We have a relative that installs geothermal systems and he is booked solid and has been that way for several years. His only problem is finding help to keep up with the demand. If we lived in an area that would allow it, I would be the first one to install a system. They work and are a proven...
