RE: Pets in a Resturant

The following site at ada.gov says service animals can be any animal, not just dogs although that may be older info. I guess that's why we need so many lawers. :@ http://www.ada.gov/qasrvc.htm Surely you have heard of "emotional support" service animals right?? People can now get papers verifying the little yappers are indeed service animals and businesses can not bar them. How nice. Sorry Ken. Not true. From the government ADA, here is the definition: "Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities...... Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA." There is one exception: Emotional support dogs are allowed with veterans that have diagnosed PSTD. The real problem is that, other than "seeing eye" dogs, there is no standard or organization that independently certifies service dogs. If I say my Chihuahua is a service dog, no one can disprove that. (I, and most dog trainers, can easily train him to preform one service dog function.) I have spent entire life with dogs and am now disabled. I have an unpopular view. IMHO All animals, except service dogs should not be allowed inside a business establishment unless the owner invites them. Just my opinion folks. You can have an opposing view.

RE: Adjusting side view mirrors

I would guess that over half of the people pulling RVs around here don't have mirrors that stick out far enough to go past what they are towing which is also scary.

RE: law to stop you from working on your car

The problem with updating the on-board computers is that is allows individuals to override safety features. With newer diesels, you can probably inactivate the DEF system.

RE: Comcast, Time Warner Cable deal dead...

They merger would have reduced competition because they would have more bargaining power when negotiating with the content providers. Someone else mentioned the trustbusters are needed again. It wasn't much more than a century ago when we saw what happens when one company dominates a market and owns the means of production and the distribution networks. Where I live, traditional cable is available through Comcast and Frontier offers cable TV through their FIOS service that runs through optical fiber. Can you tell me ANY market where the same household could get both Comcast and Time Warner service? I don't know any place where the two companies compete. I live in a fairly large metro area and I don't know any city locally where one could get cable TV from more than one company. People say this deal will reduce competition, but how can you reduce competition if there is none today? I don't really think the deal should go through, but I also don't think it would change competition because there is none I know of between the two companies.

RE: Possible relocation to Minnesota questions.

There are lots of snowmobile trails all over Minnesota if you want motorized fun in the winter.

RE: Ram ecodiesel problems?

30,000 miles on our Grand Cherokee ecodiesel with no engine/emission problems so far. If you don't tow anything, then the V6 is just fine for the Jeep. I like the ability to tow our travel trailer and still get over 30 MPG on the highway when not towing.

RE: Whats wrong with California State Parks

I'm all for adding picnic facilities, but soccer fields seem more appropriate for a city park. http://www.latimes.com/local/politics/la-me-pol-state-parks-20150130-story.html

RE: How to buy a car

I take the easy way out and use an auto broker from our credit union or AAA. It may cost a little more, but it sure is convenient.

RE: What if the Pats are found guilty in Deflategate?

It may all be related to this video where the officials were probably just replacing the kicking ball and not rejecting a bad ball like an umpire will toss out a baseball that is scuffed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wB1YbfBBXgg

RE: How much is an RV parking space at home worth to you?

The RV space would not be a buying point for me. We have never stored our RV at home. The reason- if stored at home, when it's gone the bad guys know you're gone That's one nice thing about not having your RV at home and something we never even thought about 15 years ago when we had room to park our camper next to the garage. Around here, the lots are so small that it would be rare to find any home built in the last 40 years with space for an RV parking pad.

RE: Floor tile grout cleaning

When I was in fast food, we cleaned the floors with Tide laundry detergent and let water sit on the floor for a few minutes and then scrub it with a deck brush for a weekly cleaning. That worked on mostly greasy messes and kept the white grout looking white.

RE: So This Spanish Magician.........

Did you hear about the little person psychic who robbed a bank and is wanted by the FBI. She's a small medium at large.

RE: New to me - Internet scam

Our e-mail is full of unclaimed gift cards and year-end rebates at stores we don't shop at. At least most people should know that local police agencies don't have your e-mail address.

RE: Do you say?

Aren't you supposed to list the other person first? Sally gave a present to Bob and me should be more correct than Sally gave a present to me and Bob.

RE: What is your favorite Christmas music?

My favorite song is Christmas Rapping by The Waitresses. Favorite traditional carol is The Friendly Beasts. My Favorite album is The Little Drummer Boy by the Harry Simeone Chorale. Mom always played that album around Christmas and it has some good medleys featuring carols that supposedly had never been recorded before the album was released in the 50s.

RE: Grandson wants to know.......

Remember when you had to buy a cupholder to hang on the inside of your car door? And I had to reach across the car to unlock the doors or roll down the windows with the crank.

RE: Grandson wants to know.......

Whenever I whined about not having cable TV, my dad would always remind me that he never slept anywhere with an indoor bathroom until he joined the Army. Grandpa's farm did have a cistern for non-potable water when I was a kid and we had to use the hand-pumped well outside to get drinking water. (And it gets cold in North Dakota.) It wasn't until 1982 that a rural water district was created and they had piped-in water. A good one, and a great answer. My 18 year-old granddaughter was absolutely shocked when she realized while looking at some pictures of my parents and their adorable first born (me) - that my mother actually moved into a house when she married my father which did not have indoor plumbing. "How could she do that?" "Well, she never had indoor plumbing at her father's farm either."

RE: Building Permit Cost per State and City for New Home

Here in Hillsboro, just west of Portland, you can expect to pay several thousand on new construction just to connect to water and sewer. Then you still have to pay other development fees and pay for different kinds of permits.

RE: Ford, GM and Chrysler cash in on posh pickups

It's the same with SUVs. Most have a trim level that is very luxurious. Grand Cherokees come with 20" wheels unless you get the off-road II package that substitutes 18" wheels.

RE: NFL FOX Comedian...Riggles???

Some of his are halfway funny. I usually just read the paper during the pregame show and hit rewind if I hear they are talking about the Vikings which isn't very often. :(
