Re: Movin' On Up

The high-rise at 500 N. Lake Shore Drive is the second-most expensive in the city, with rents for a one-bedroom apartment approaching $3,000 a month, well beyond the reach of most Chicago residents.

But that's not too much for the Chicago

Re: looking at artifacts

Re: Sweet!

Whoa! So you can't go hang out at a VFW? I felt bad for you. Just because you never served in a foreign war you can't eat at the VFW? I had no idea that the VFW was that picky. You were in a Submarine during the Cold War. That ought to count for [more]

Re: Lost Sounds of Summer

Occasionally, we'd fib to our mothers and ride our bikes 20 miles farther than we said we would.

Whew! $14? That's what haircuts cost these days? Man, I have saved a ton of money by letting Bonnie cut my hair for the last 20 years.

I really did marry well.

Re: Poll: Normal or Nutz

It was Tuesday when the hair cutter clipped me for a penny. Today, I spent $5.36 at a Stop'n'Rob and paid with a $20. The cashier gave me 14.65 in change, I suppose to avoid the dreadful chore of counting out four pennies. So I am [more]

axi drivers HATE Lyft and Uber, for the reasons you pointed out. They have to get special licenses, but Lyft and Uber have found a way around that. In most places... some places the taxi drivers are playing hardball and getting rules passed [more]

Re: Poll: Normal or Nutz

What I hate is when you order chicken McNuggets from McDonalds and ask for sauce but you get home and... no sauce! That's losing more than a penny. Happened to us last night. My wife wanted nuggets so I got them for her. She wanted the 20 piece. [more]

Re: Poll: Normal or Nutz

I would have noticed but would have shrugged it off. Sometimes I lose a penny that way, sometimes the cashier doesn't feel like making that much change and I get a penny. It probably all evens out in the end.

There are more bugs, nematodes, protozoans, bacteria, mites, etc. living on the human body than there are skin cells. They live in the pores of our skin, in our gut, etc. We are a walking cavorting beastie factory.

One other thing. The other day there was a young black vulture sitting up in beech tree above our house. I waved my walking stick at it and it flew away but yesterday morning it was back sitting on top of our house! I think that buzzard is there [more]

The site was down because Twitty and Speck were getting teabagged by Gardner and they accidentally flipped the off switch.
