No problems found. Light off. Back on the [more]

Engine Light

When I started up our P T Cruiser in the garage this morning, the car ran a bit rough, but soon smoothed out and it has run fine ever since. However, the engine light came on and has stayed on -- not flashing, just steady yellow.

It was [more]

Remember, you and I have seen it many times. Somewhere out there are many little kids who may never have seen it before.

Far out suggestion, but maybe...

We have a septic system here, but maybe this would work there, too.

In any event, in our newly renovated main bathroom is a lovely slipper tub, along with a stall shower, sink console, and [more]

"Unbroken" -- An Amazing Book

I just read this (it was a gift). It is truly an amazing work about a man's life, and about what our American forces endured in the Pacific in WWII, but it goes far beyond that, too.

Read it. But be prepared: some parts are rather graphic, [more]

Yes, indeed, most of us here think our man Peter Welch is sharp, intelligent, and also reasonable. He works hard for Vermonters, but he also is trying to do his best to work with "the opposition" on matters that affect the [more]

Very thoughtful response.

I'd prefer to see more areas of science funded than just space exploration and medical research, but I can be reasonable ;-)

Agreed.

OMG..... Congress is poisoned.

However, again, we admire our own sole Representative Peter Welch, who seems to consistently seek to cross the isle with good ideas.

Check out our own beloved Sen. Bernie Sanders. Nut case? Some think so, but look at what he stands for.

Bravo, NASA, on successfully launching and retrieving ORION!

It always upsets me to hear and read the totally ignorant remarks faulting scientific work by NASA and others.
