RE: Sleep apnea

I may be the only nay-sayer here, BUT I tried a CPAP for over a month. Could not find a comfortable mask to use. Being a side sleeper, I usually worked a mask off during the night. Worst thing was after an hour or two, I would wake up with a terrible headache. Seems the cool air blowing up my nose was equal to a "brain freeze". My episodes were caused more by leg spasms than interrupted breathing. I started using over-the-counter meds for restless leg and gave up the CPAP.....

While remodeling the S & B....

We have an older home, built sometime in the 1950's, while remodeling our only bathroom, discovered the wall studs in two of the walls are 2" X 6". Not just regular 2X6's, rough cut oak 2X6's and hard as bedrock. I think this old house would survive an atomic bomb.....

RE: Rental Car heart attack

Jetboater, I did not, same reason I did not go with Enterprise either, I wanted to pick up and drop off at airport for convenience. I hate running half way across town to pick up and drop off vehicle and then need a ride to and from airport. I am an old man and don't like hassles.....

Rental Car heart attack

I have not needed to rent a vehicle in I can't remember when... I am planning a short trip in September for a family reunion in the west-central part of Iowa. I will fly into Omaha and planned on renting a car for a 70 mile trip, spend over night and return to Omaha for a return flight out. I checked all of the sites on-line and got all kinds of wild prices, all ranging from $200 to $400 dollars. I called several of the rental companies located at the airport directly and finally reserved with Hertz for $170.00 for the two day rental. What has happened to the Rental market? No more $19.95 a day get-a-way prices....

RE: Raccoons - 1, Me - 1. (UPDATE!)

Well, add another critter to the mix!!! I set the trap again after the third racoon, just to make sure another young coon was not missed. This morning I checked the trap, and the door was snapped shut. I figured another cat had walked in. Looked in the back of the trap and saw a juvenile possum in the cage. So now I guess I am trapping possums now.. Possum young, like coons usually travel with the momma until she runs them off. I will keep baiting the trap until I am satisfied they are gone.

RE: Raccoons - 1, Me - 1. (UPDATE!)

Well, it is Sunday morning, July 10th, I think I have the momma in the trap. So, it's now: ME - 3 Raccoon - 1 I will continue setting trap until I am convinced all raccoons are re-homes.... Lightning55, sure glad I live in "The Natural State".

RE: Raccoons - 1, Me - 1. (UPDATE!)

It is now: Me - 2 Raccoon -1 I think (hope), the momma coon is all that's left. Time will tell..

RE: Power jacj

Not knowing the type of unit you have, be sure to get one with the weight rating of you unit. I have had two different units with electric Jack's, would. Not own a trailer without one.

Raccoons - 1, Me - 1. (UPDATE!)

We have an old Tom cat that stays outside. I feed him on the back deck, and I noticed that the food bowl had started to move around, and I figured it was a raccoon or a possum. I have a live trap, so I baited it up and waited. I have a motion light shining on the bowl, first night, it came on and I watched through the blind. The coon went halfway in the trap and backed out a couple of times, then walked around the back of the trap and stuck his hands through the one-inch squares of the cage. I had to find a different plan..... I had some heavy gauge plastic sheeting, so I wrapped, and duct taped all the seams. Next morning, I had a juvenile coon in the trap, after I stepped out on the deck, I saw another coon run under a storage building. Well, the fight is on, I know there is at least two more to catch. I will let you know the final tally. BTW, I have permission to release the animals on a WMA area not far from house, so no wildlife is harmed....

RE: Private Arkansas campground

May I suggest you Google Mountain View, AR and you will find all the private campgrounds you can visit! The first one that came to mind is Jack's Fishing Resort on the bank of the White River. RV sites, cabins or motel rooms, boat rental, swimming pool, and one of the best restaurants in the state, JoJo's Fish House, serving fried catfish. It is close to town where you can shop, take a lawn chair down to the Courthouse Square and listen to music by groups all around the Square. We usually stayed at Sylamore Creek Campground, grands were not into fishing but I have been known to wet a hook in the Creek while the kids and Grandma played in the water. Also, the Ozark Folk Center is close and see all the craftsmen and women at work. If you need more info, just holler....

RE: Turn Your Regular Grill into a Smoker - Easy

I have been doing this for several years, on a gas and charcoal grill. Nice way to do ribs, chicken, Cornish hens, and even meat loaf. I don't really recommend doing large pieces of meat like a whole brisket, large pork butt, or 20 lb. Turkey unless you use a gas grill where you can regulate the temp. Using a charcoal grill with large pieces of meat, and trying to regulate a low temp takes too much babysitting the grill, JMHO.....

Thanks to the VA Healthcare....

Last week went to the VA ENT clinic to get my ears looked at. They put hearing aids on me several years ago, but hearing became almost non-existent for the last few months. To make a long story short, I needed a good cleaning. Nurse started washing and digging, sucking and pulling and after about an hour, I was hearing better than I have in ten years. I can actually hear without the aids!!! Ringing in my ears has decreased almost half, she said it would never go away. Never had a good cleaning like I got, she said they were really packed up. I told her after 72 years I can only imagine. Now have an appointment every 6 months for cleaning.....

RE: What a great day!!!!

Well, I sit here crying in my coffee cup.... Both teams lost, pitching let me down in baseball and the basketball team was still tired from the hard fought game on Thursday against Gonzaga. I will be alright, basketball team went farther than most of the others, and baseball is just kicking off conference play. Look out Omaha, here we come...again!!!

What a great day!!!!

The Fourth ranked Arkansas Razorback Baseball team plays Missouri today at 2:00 PM on the SEC channel then the fourteenth ranked Basketball team plays around 7:20 PM on the TBS channel against Duke. Again, no one gives them a dog's chance to beat Duke, just like no respect against Gonzaga.....

RE: Today in History

My father was U.S. Army from 1941-1945, spent his entire enlistment at Dutch Harbor, AK. I was U.S. Army 1969-1970, Vietnam. Most of my tour was with 199th Inf. Bde. and 1st Aviation Bde. during 1970.

Today in History

Learned today that on this date in History that the U.S. Flag was raised in the battle of Iwo Jima, February 23. The battle raged on for many more weeks before the island was secured. The greatest generation....

Handy kitchen tip #93

Instead of using those cheap plastic or flimsy metal chip bag clips, we use the binder clips found in the office supply aisle at Walmart. We buy the medium size, but once in a while a large one. They last forever and don't break or fall apart. Just an idea....
