Jul 24th 2012 8:01PM The wife and I took that trip years ago on vacation that took 4 weeks to drive all the way around the USA. We saw things that you could never see on the interstates and met some of the nicest people that you can imagine. I'm glad today that we took the trip when we were younger and in the best of health. Memories to last us for the rest of our lives.
Mar 23rd 2012 10:59AM I bought a Maytag washer from Home Depot and it was one of the worst mistakes in my life. Not only did it have to be repaired 3 times during the short time we had it- it actually caught fire on the fourth year of ownership and the motor burned up. In checking on the internet it has been reported numerous times of running hot, the cabinet being very hot to the touch. We examined it after the mishap and found that the running windings field in the motor was wound with copper wire the size of angel hair spagetti. Much too small for the tasks that would be assigned to the washer. And NO we did not overload it either.
Incidentally it only had a one year warranty so we scrapped it period!
Apr 26th 2011 7:35AM Poor little rich girl is finally being given a sense of reality. If you can really call it that. Maybe it will wake up a lot of her party going friends also- they could use some of the same treatment.
Jan 6th 2011 5:31PM After being on facebook for about a year I saw no valid reason to continue. It is really for the younger people and can be particularly dangerous with the information that is being posted daily on it." No Thank" you I do not care to post to prying eyes that may or may not cause me or my family harm.
Oct 14th 2010 1:45PM On the night that my wife and I married we took a nice little drive into the countryside, whereupon we returned to our newly rented apartment. I went to work the next day because I had just started to work at a new job. We couldn't afford a trip then or afford to be off from work. I have since made it right with numerous trips and journeys. That was 57 years ago.
Sep 16th 2010 8:21AM Being a senior I never in all my life wanted a tattoo and I am thankful to this day that it never happened. When I look at all the young girls that bare some type of body markings- to me it makes them look very dirty and unclean. Should they have regrets later on and want them removed, it becomes an expensive and impossible task to remove without any trace. Think about it seriously before you make that first big mistake.
Aug 13th 2010 7:50PM Wonder how the poor little rich girl is doing in rehab now? Will she fulfill her sentence by the judge or will someone else let her out where she will be back on the highways again? I feel safer on the highways today knowing that at least one of those " Me, Me, Me " persons is temporarily being detained.
Jul 21st 2010 6:06PM I make it a point to change filters on the first day of each month. They are not that expensive and I even write the letter F on my calendar with a circle around it to remind me replace the filter. If seniors have E or EE bonds that have reached final maturity (30 years) they need to cash them on the first day of the month that they reach final maturity. Interest is paid for that whole month so... a big B is also posted on the calendar beside the filter reminder of the letter F.
Jul 15th 2010 3:03PM To answer Marc and his comments. You think that this action is harmless and that no one can get hurt? Well, you are wrong and to me and other seniors, it is an act of terrorism-pure and simple. Remember this, if you don't remember anything else in your life, Familiarity Breeds Contempt. Will the person or persons out there in the world doing these cowardly things be satisified with that so called little action, or will they attempt to do things on a larger scale to harm a lot more people or property? Think before you act on something of this nature that could rob someone of their sight or life before you act. It could cause you unrepairable harm in the interim. That my friend would be Poetic Justice.
Jul 15th 2010 2:34PM Poor little rich girl again with her devious mind. Wonder what she and her cohorts have up their sleeves? This includes all of the brats around and in Hollywood that think that the laws do not pertain to them. We shall see....we shall see......
