Re: The Political Climate

Some food for thought... Watergate was about a two-bit larceny that went bad. Iran-Contra investigation was on arms sales to foreign countries. A few years after all the dust had settled I listened to a Fed. Judge explain that the Iran-Contra was more important that Watergate. The reason being is th...

Re: Heathkit Mohican

I remember getting a Knight Space Spanner for my birthday and putting it together. The first thing I picked up was the finish of the Daytona 500 on AFRTS. It was like '56 or '57, I also miss the days when you could tune in the world.

Re: Turner Classic Movies on Comcast

My wife went the 'triple play' to save money on the monthly bill and now if I'm streaming it pauses while the phone is answering/ taking a message. That is even after they told me my speed was going up. I wonder what would happen if say an OTA station added a sub-channel that are now only found on c...

Re: Turner Classic Movies on Comcast

Besides TCM there is word that Starz channels will be dumped the end of the year.
I've come to the conclusion ComieCast wants people to just go away.

Re: Impeachment

I wouldn't be too sure... The Nixon impeachment started slow and gained speed as more and more came out. The hearing was a shit show like we've seen lately. One side asking questions and the other side shouting insults at the one's asking. Bit by bit the facts made it very uncomfortable for the Prez...

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.
