Re: the face of the firm

I had a cataract in each eye for more than 10 years but noticed in the last 18 months my vision was definitely compromised. Went to a new ophthalmologist here and was told that I had TWO cataracts (Cortical and Posterior Subcapsular) in each eye. [more]

Re: the difference between here & FB

I thought what that kid did for the homeless dude needing a wheelchair was really nice, but I see your point about self-promotion.

Re: Shooting du Jour

given that we speaking about Texas, Democrats who did not vote (either in the primary or the general election) probably had little effect on the outcome.

Re: Trump Surges in NH!

Ever the contrarian, I like having many contenders. They hit one another with rubber bats, they squirt seltzer on one another, and hit one another with fake pies. It's worth the price of admission, and generally discredits the whole lot of them, [more]

Re: An Open Letter

I do remember being annoyed when I worked for a short time in Tampa, though, in that every building had to have the AC cranked down to a shivery 64 regardless of the temperature outside.

Re: Best Things Ever!

Very large landscape pots for trees but, yeah, no doubt much better in the ground. I didn't expect a huge yield, and am glad to have tried them, but they're a lot of work and water hogs. The nice farm stand up the road has all the organic veggies we [more]

Also admiring my tater vines. Huge they are. Visions of big red potatoes in my mind's eye.

I did not use my tomatoes, as I've put almost all of them in the freezer whole for use in soups and stews.

Re: geico ads

I've seen it numerous times, as well. It happens so often that I just thought it would be reported. I guess we're all so accustomed to things like that by now, we just let it slide. . .

Re: Go Set a Watchman?

Nope. Not going to donate money to the lawyer pushing it. It's a rejected first-draft, not something that old, confused icon of American literature would ever endorse, IMO.

Nope.
