Re: OT: Lunch

Hot dogs, macaroni salad and watermelon.

Did your watermelon at least have seeds?

Seedless watermelons are an abomination. What's the point of watermelon without the seeds?

Re: Niacin

So far as lowering my overall cholesterol, I have another round of tests scheduled for 3 months out due to a different issue, so I'm going to see how increasing my soluble fiber intake effects it between now and then. I'm not really worried about [more]

Re: Niacin

I have had 2 doctors (including 1 cardiologist) in the past suggest Niacin to lower my cholesterol. Due to the flushing side effect, it turned out to not be a good option for me. I don't think it's really seen as a "natural remedy" as it's [more]

Re: Exodus

I think "birds" would have been fine too, and with a pinch of pinache!

I had a cow-orker who at one point decided to include a lot of British slang into his speech. So he's be saying "bloody this" and "bloody [more]

Re: Exodus

Seriously. If more people would follow my lead and switch back to "tomato", pronounced "tamaytah", a lot of this could be avoided.

The 18-year-old left because of the new policy that we all have to take turns doing some of the routine cleaning. Meaning that we might have to take out our trash can every now and then, or re-stock the paper towels in the restroom every couple of [more]

Re: Online Bill Pay for tenants to pay rent?

One tenant drives it to our bank drive-thru and deposits the rent check into our checking account, and one drives a check over to our house.

Just out of curiosity, why don't they mail you the rent checks? I mean driving to your bank [more]

Re: blood pressure and antihistimes

Of course we learned not long ago that some antihistamines cause increases in blood pressure. The opposite effect in chemotherapy survivors is news to me.

I have heard about *decongestants* causing higher blood pressure but not [more]

Re: Monkeys

I thought when people had "TMF" in their screen name it meant they were either an employee or a sponsored poster? I cannot imagine why a certain clickbait poster still has that status.

Re: Weekly meetings

You must have one of those freakishly long coke nails or something....or I am not clearly understanding how this is possible.

Re: graduation gift ideas?

If it was me, I'd fall back on the gift card. If he likes to travel and is also sort of the outdoors-y type, then REI has a lot of things that are useful for such activities. That would include travel bags, bicycle stuff, camping gear, backpacks, [more]

Re: RIP: CSI

NCIS was spun off (loosely) from J.A.G. not CSI. The first 2 episodes (which introduce the key leads) were actually J.A.G. episodes.

Re: Adventure

Glad you all are home safe & had a good trip!

For my college years, I had to ship things back & forth after the folks dropped me off freshman year. This was back when you could take a bicycle on a plane in a big box. :)
