Re: 6 things I learned riding a Self-Driving Car

Interesting. I can't say I look forward to seeing one of those in my neighborhood.

It would have to contend with the drivers around here - and children, children on bicycles, motorcycles, dogs, cats, raccoons, deer, possums, sewer [more]

Re: McMake your own McBurger

It's more like 23 items, but everything is greasy & has cheese on it & it's unclear which items come with lettuce & tomato. If any.

Re: Anyone up for a Revival?

Sure, but for the moment my goal for the holidays is not to gain a noticeable amount of weight. Actually making progress toward my goal is likely to happen after Christmas.

That is, unless there's a lot of snow to shovel...

Re: McMake your own McBurger

I'm not sure this is going to help, when some people see McDonald's as "road food". About the only times I get anything from McDonald's are on long road trips. And IMO the menus ARE too complicated, considering.

Re: OT: Letter to Recyclers

We've got the wheeled bins. Gray with green lids for trash. Blue (or blue lids) for recycling.

If the household needs another trash bin, they need to pay extra.
An extra recycle bin is free. Do they have that arrangement where you are? [more]

Using an ASUS laptop, windows 7 home premium, mostly Firefox browser.

I've been having ongoing problems looking at any videos or listening to audio (buffering all the time, hanging, Firefox crashing occasionally.) Tried to update, but that [more]

Re: Doctor Dies in Nebraska of Ebola

The African man who died in Texas was mis-diagnosed, sent home with an antibiotic, and only admitted days later. So any attempt to treat him for Ebola had a late start.

The physician who died in Nebraska just recently did not test positive [more]

Re: Problem With Firefox and .PDF Files

Some of us had this problem at work. I think there's a setting for it. Wasn't that hard to fix it except that they made our security settings super tight for a while so we couldn't change minor stuff or even add printers by [more]

Re: car salesmen

I felt sort of the same way after buying a new Toyota, years ago. I never got a good sense of whether I was getting a halfway decent deal or not. I didn't enjoy all the games they were playing with the financing and the trade-in. (Admittedly, I did [more]

Malware Bytes paid version

I thought I was getting a free version a while back but it looks like what I had was a trial version. If I subscribe, is it the same thing I've got now? Does it seem to be worth it?

Re: Squirrels

You wrap a net around the tree somehow?

Squirrels got most of my tomatoes. I got only four ripe tomatoes off six plants because they were taking them still green. A few were left when frost hit, but they were green and still very [more]

Re: OT It seems everyone hates Comcast

My parents had a lot of trouble with Comcast after they moved, when they were trying to get cable and internet set up. They could not reach a human when they tried to get things straightened out. Not a good situation for a person who is old and hard [more]

Re: Keep it simple, stupid

I like the idea of simplicity, I just think that in the case of Aldi it's too bad they don't have more of a selection in the produce department. Last time I went into one here, you couldn't even get squash.

Re: Side Yard Ideas & Ground Cover

It helps to know what sort of climate you're dealing with. Hostas of various kinds work well here, and there are various plants that work well as ground covers - but this is the upper Midwest. If you're in a hot or dry climate I wouldn't know.

Re: Forget the Apple Watch

You could always get them a Timex with a cartoon character on it, and maybe they will learn to tell time before they destroy the watch.

Re: How to know you're old

I'm glad you found something that's easy and looks good. I was experimenting after the color I liked got discontinued. Natural color was ginger (sort of red) & now it's ginger with some white in it. The color I tried came out a boring dirt brown. [more]
