Re: RIP: Don Rickles

Have you watched SNL lately?

Yeah, I have. Did you watch it during the Obama years? How surprising that they were mocking Obama and Hillary! You would think a bunch of leftist writers and a commie TV network would have known better. [more]

Re: LED bulbs

Yes, depending where you live the heat generated can be a factor. Our kitchen used to get HOT, and in the summer in Phoenix that sucks. Obviously oven, cooktop, and even the fridge (which sheds heat into the room) all contributed. But replacing [more]
