Re: Weekly meetings

Not remotely; my nails are very short. It's just not that hard. Try it for yourself!

Re: Weekly meetings

RJ, didn't you have someone at your office who was camping out in the stall? How do people get away with this? I think I'd call security if we had security.

I think you might be thinking about me. I had a terrible problem with a guy [more]

Re: Scorecard Enhancement

A lot of people will tell you it's a bad idea to closely track the stocks you've sold after you sell them. It leads to too much second-guessing.

Re: cripes

It's really best never to watch TV. Every time I turn it on, I wish I hadn't.

I'm going away for a week and a half and really looking forward to unplugging. It's so easy to get caught up in the Internet and other popular media. You can [more]

Re: Solar

I've frequently read things about methane-powered fuel cells.

But every one I've been able to find detail on (which, I hasten to point out, is not all of them I've read about) consists of two parts, one being a hydrogen-powered fuel cell

Re: Solar

The big, earthshaking breakthrough is unlikely to happen, given the capital constraints of the business and the fact that it's still being pursued as an industrial product. It may *never* "break out." It surely will improve gradually, [more]

Owner / Seller Financing

I am starting to read about this. I did a search on this board and found some old threads which described what I would consider pretty typical pitfalls of doing this, from the seller's perspective.

I found this company and just skimmed [more]

Re: Smart Phones =? Dumber Kids

Why someone would watch those, or allow children to watch those I do not understand. But being 10 and watching how farmer John plants and irrigates his farm, repairs his tractor, and counsels with the Farm Bureau to increase his yield? [more]

Re: Smart Phones =? Dumber Kids

This doesn't seem plausible. What about reading a book on an iPad or Kindle? Are people who read books that way not getting the same benefit as those who read real books? I find that hard to believe. Can it really be that "cathode ray [more]

Re: Early Flowering on Tomatoes

What was the problem with the dirt? It's not like it was right on the roof. It was in containers, right?

Early Flowering on Tomatoes

I'm doing a fully hydroponic garden this year for the first time ever (had to get rid of all my nice dirt, which, as it turns out, has no place on a roof deck). So far it's been pretty painless. I'm using loose rockwool (bought a big bale of it) in [more]

Re: Drought: It's not just the SW & CA

However, CA could see much needed-rain in an El Nino. During the last strong El Nino event in 1997-98, my little town in the north bay area had 30 inches of rain over a two month period. We saw two good southern-sourced storms last December, which [more]
