Re: And The Employee of the Month Is --

I use the rule of thumb my engineer neighbor told me. If you only need the tool for a couple uses then go Harbor F.
If you are going to need it on a regular basis then go buy a good one at the appropriate store.

Re: Defend US Military’s Many Stops at Trump’s Resort in Scotland

I think your confusing the Govmt. purchase of the airport in '13 and bleeding money till May '17 when the Planes started stopping in. That would be after the election of course.
You might want to read the Politico and Guardian reports.

Re: Most Dangerous Roundabouts In Michigan

If everyone wasn't in such a hurry through the intersections the rate would drop drastically. I used to drive through a roundy 4 times a day and would see tailgating and speeding with the hope of passing just one more car before the lane merged. There will always be the timid driver who does not fee...

Re: Texas mass shooting

A random thought...
Texas is an open carry state. Where were all the folks in the Walmart who were packing and did nothing?
I think this blows the NRA theory that a Clint Eastwood or Chuck Bronson would change the outcome.

Re: Apollo 11

I remember that Sunday evening. It seemed like it took forever for them to get out once they were down. It was like 10 pm before they did the hop about. The next day we did lunch at the usual spot. (Sportsman's Tavern in A2) and it happened to be the same time of the lift off to come back. Not a sou...

Re: OTA channels MIA

Anyone know why channel 32 (ONT) has dropped off the dial? Side note, when I was very young I took a tour of WPAG for fun and met Dave Pringle aka Prince. There was a large studio across the hall that was empty except for a very dusty piano. I asked the use of and the response was, "back when we had...

Re: OTA channels MIA

Question on the 'Xtreme Signal' ant. When it's aimed to get WADL can you still get chan. 9+32 out of Canada and the Toledo stations.
It looks like it may be too directional. I use an omni directional 15' up with a small amp to boost but the WADL is only an occasional get.

Re: DId your parents ever not let you listen to certain kinds of music growing up?

Back about '57 my Dad told my sister, who was listening to CKLW, to "turn that crap off!" She just went to her room to listen to it. What do you expect from a guy who once played for Lawrence Welk.

Re: Anyone here from Missouri?

Spent some time in St Louis in the later part of the 60's. Had a girlfriend that lived there. The Zoo is planned out for ease of walking around. The Bud brewery is a nice diversion and Forest Park where the 1903 Worlds Fair was made famous by the movie Meet Me in St Louis. One thing I noticed back t...

Re: Did They Cancel Spring This Year?

I heard the reason is the jet stream is stuck just below us in an East to West run not letting the warm air move in. It could be what is saving us from all the really nasty storms that are sliding South of us.

Re: Gun Enthusiast in Cashmere, Victim of Attempted Jewel Heist

Remember reading a story about a battle in the Civil War where a soldier was shot through the 'naughty bits' and the rifle ball lodged in a young girls abdomen. Nine months later ...... you guessed it! The story said that the two married and had more children.

Any memory of the Iran-Cantra investigation would for tell how Barr would behave. He was AGAINST any investigation and ALL FOR pardons so many of the questions could never be fully answered.

Re: If you can't win, just change the rules!

A better apportionment of the Electoral votes might be per votes. The current system gives States a min.of 3 one each for Senator and Rep. In Wyoming that works out to 1 vote for about every 500k people. If you used the same ratio of E. vote per 500k then just LA County in Cal. would have 270 E.vote...
