Re: Wick

Sorry for your loss, Grue. Even if when they live well into their 90s, it can still be tough to lose them. Were your brother and sister close to her?


Thanks. She'll be missed, but her mind was going, so it was harder and harder [more]

Re: Transportation Bill

It's not that the end result wasn't positive, it was that the cost was completely absurd.


There have been many projects and initiatives like this in our history. After the cost has been absorbed, we can look at what was done and [more]

Re: Excitement

You likely had to remove a fair amount of manure from your underwear?


No, I said it, but I didn't do it.

During the skid, LW was patting my leg, saying "It will be OK."

Two things were running through [more]

Re: Observations on equipment

I have no idea what we will name this new one, but somehow, it seems like a "she" to me. So I will have to come up with a fitting name for her.

My car is called "the car", and LW's Highlander is called "the [more]

Re: Observations on equipment

We were glad the BMW we just bought did NOT have built-in GPS.


The only time I use the built-in GPS is for finding addresses/navigating around town or when I already know the route and just want to know how far it is to my [more]

Re: Anybody Here.......

Late to the party here.

We switched over from T-Mobile to AT&T a few years ago because of poor reception at our house. We also had no reception at all at my sister's house, so we switched while we were visiting there.

We each [more]

Observations on equipment

During our stay out at the "ranch" (it doesn't seem like a ranch to me, since it's only 54 acres and has no livestock), we noticed that our iPhones were much better for fringe area reception than my iPad. We were able to get some cellular [more]

Excitement

On our drive over to Texas, we hit a thunderstorm northwest of Wichita Falls. It was raining fairly hard, but I've driven through much worse.

A section of that highway doesn't drain properly, and we started hydro planing. All of a sudden, [more]

Wick

Some of you may remember my talking about my "Wicked Stepmother" whom we called "Wick" for short.

We got a call last week that she was in the hospital after a fall. We drove over to Greenville, TX to be with her. When we [more]

Re: Mr. Market

I don't know how you recognize which model you have.

You don't read my posts, do you?

That's another thing. The nearest Apple store is near LAX and 25 miles from here.

25 LA miles, which count extra!

No, she's built into the OS. However, she needs an iPad 3 or higher to work.

Re: Mr. Market

Pressing the button didn't do anything.


She has to be turned on before she'll do anything for you.


Luckily, turning her on is easy. Just go under Settings -> General -> Siri and flick her switch.

Re: Anybody Here.......

Those are great. Those who use a Garmin or Tom-Tom have to get the maps updated and it (sometimes?) costs money.

TomTom cost $50, IIRC, but the updates are free. It also works on my iPhone, iPad, and LW's iPhone, all for [more]

Re: Anybody Here.......

I use Osmand for this. It is great. Even has turn-by-turn audio directions.

I bought the TomTom app for use here in the US. It's far better than the GPS system built into my Toyota, but I still get frustrated that it won't let me [more]

Re: 60 Minutes

I might add that people with a disability tend not to live as long as other people. DH's life expectancy with his condition is age 70 (he's 65 now), although I think he'll beat the odds and make it to 75 as he was in such exceptionally good health [more]

They never mentioned coal mining, but we cognoscenti know that that was the economic support for the region, and it has gone in the toilet, for a number of reasons, both financial and political. Even Obama has contributed by trying to limit the [more]
