RE: "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot"

It's fascinating reading this thread. I just got back from a trip to Germany and our (USA) definition of "high density housing" is completely different than theirs. I think the people here in the USA are a different breed than those in Europe. Even the small villages there are "cramped" by US standards. And when the town ends, it ENDS. Goes from apartments and/or row housing to farm land in a single step. No apartments, to row houses, to single houses, to bigger houses on large lots, to VERY large house/lots, THEN to farm land.

RE: Is there a cure for a smelly washing machine.....

I would figure some sort of baking soda mixture would do the trick.

RE: Back from Denmark and Iceland

l advise those who say NO WAY to European/Scandanavian travel like I used to-RECONSIDER. Much to experience and learn over there.I would agree. I've been able to go to Europe for work (and throw in some vacation too) for the last few years. It's been a lot of fun. For the next trip (next week, in fact!), I get to take my wife. So now SHE will see what I've been seeing.

RE: The Drunk Caller is Back!

Find a phone number that is not in use. Call it and record the "Not in service" message. The next time your drunk calls, play back the recording for him.That's what our phone system does. It does not seem to slow him down. Our Panasonic cordless phone system switches blocked numbers to a busy signal. We never even know they've called...We have a Panasonic, the problem is, it takes a second or two for the Caller ID to kick in. So we get a few rings, then silence.

RE: AARRGGHH!!! Double Rant! Long even!-Update

As far as her taking over my house-she'd have to take a plane from CA to MA (and she doesn't have rent money), pick a lock or figure out the garage door code, THEN figure out the alarm code. I'd still be careful. Funny sometimes how people who "don't have enough money to eat" somehow come up with enough money to get on a plane and fly across the country... I's just be careful and give the local police an FYI, just in case.

RE: There WERE a few things about the "good old days"...

If you are like me those dumb descisions had lucky results. I would not want to chance a change in those results if I went back.Good point. More than one of those "dumb" moves did result in good stuff....eventually. I just don't know if I would SURVIVE if I had to do them over. You can only roll snake eyes so many times in a row....

RE: Photographers - What DSLR do you have?

Back in the dark ages, when I was an undergrad, my aunt wanted to buy me a camera. So I went looking for a camera that had both aperture AND shutter priority. At the time, the ONLY camera that would do that was a Pentax Super Program. So I got into the Pentax system. Subsequently, I bought a K1000 and a PZ1. Yes, at about the same time I bought a totally automatic camera AND a totally MANUAL one. Now I am looking at diving into digital with the Pentax K5. In each case, the "upgrade" allowed me to use the older lenses on the newer cameras, making the transitions easier. As for lenses I have everything from a 18mm to 600mm. I've never had any trouble with any of the cameras.

This hits WAY TOO CLOSE to home. I will pray for you & your family.

RE: This would have saved me a lot of time

I just use the calculator on my phone to do math.

RE: The Drunk Caller is Back!

I have call blocking and I never hear from them again. Your provider should be able to do that!!!! They do have that, but they want to charge me something like $5 a month to do so. I should not have to pay to block this idiot. That's the main problem I've been running into. IT will cost ME money to block him. HE should be required to pay.

RE: There WERE a few things about the "good old days"...

Would I go back and relive it all. You bet! I had a great time loaded with memories. Maybe I was just luckier than some.I don't think I would want to relive those times. I made some really DUMB decisions, but I'm not sure where I would be now WITHOUT those dumb decisions. Maybe that's where wisdom comes from: surviving the stupid things you did in the past (and knowing not to do them again).

RE: There WERE a few things about the "good old days"...

In school you would call the teachers Mam or Sir, or Mr.Mrs.or Miss. You were taught there to get along obey the rules and have respect. If you didn't there were consequences. Not anymore.I hate to keep harping on this one, but it really depends on the school and the kids. I work with our band kids at the High School, and they are all "Yes, sir", "No, sir" and "Mr Doug", etc. Those kids are very polite, very hard working, and very much follow the rules (except when the rules don't make sense, then WE have to teach them when it is worth fighting a stupid rule and when it's best just to let it go). Teens don't seem to understand gray areas very well.

RE: There WERE a few things about the "good old days"...

In the old days they did not care about the natural environment and pollution was so bad that when I arrived in LA back in October 1965 my eyes were tearing from the pollution so I left the same day. Back then almost all of the diesel buses, trucks etc blew black smoke from their exhaust.I remember that. I lived out there in the 60's (Rialto, CA) and the air was TERRIBLE. We moved into our house and it was almost 6 MONTHS before the air cleared enough for us to notice the MOUNTAINS to our East. We never realized they were that close. When I was in college (some years ago...), I was leaving a concert where we all parked in a basement garage under the venue. There was only one exit and thousands of cars, all revving their engines. The air got so bad, my eyes watered and I could not take in a lung full of air without coughing. It seemed oddly familiar. Then it downed on me this is what the LA basin was like during my youth. I've been back to LA, and the air is still bad, but no where near as bad as it was when I was a kid. I can see the mountains even from the Ontario Airport.

RE: There WERE a few things about the "good old days"...

In "the good old days" most folks used common sense and took responsibility for their own actions. Today people don't think before they act/speak and then it's always someone else's fault.I've now lived long enough to hear more than one generation use that EXACT same phrase. I think the line, "Kids these days..." is universal for EVERY generation. We just forget the bad ones.

RE: There WERE a few things about the "good old days"...

Oh, and TV shows were better too.LOL, I dispute that one! I've gone back and found some of those old shows (love YouTube), and most were TERRIBLE. Once in a while there would be a gem, and those are the ones we remember. TV follows the standard "Sturgeon's Rule" (90% of everything is crud).

RE: There WERE a few things about the "good old days"...

#1 knot free lumber. Don't try to find much of it these days, the only place to get it is from HUGE old-growth trees, and "they" won't allow them to be cut.Actually because there are few "old growth" forests left. We've nearly cut them all. And they don't grow back so quickly (that's why they are called "old growth").

RE: The Drunk Caller is Back!

He's calling long distance. When you answer and its him, just lay the phone down until you hear the "fast busy" signal, then hang up. He'll have a heck of a long distance bill next month. That's what I do with unsolicited sales calls.That's what we may do next time.

RE: The Drunk Caller is Back!

Have you filed a complaint with the FCC?We did when he was calling from NYC. It didn't seem to change anything. Actually, I contacted the FCC, and they told me there was nothing they could do.

RE: REALY BIG RANT! Short post.

I feel your pain. Here in Alabama, it was almost 35°F last night! There was panic in the streets! We are just not used to this bitter cold weather.
