Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Where has Mountaineer gone? We have not heard from him in 16 days. How unusual is that? March 16 - April 5 - 9 days January 16 - February 19 - a LOT of days Gosh people, I'm humbled that someone noticed. I'm still alive and kicking. I've been reading the forum most every day.

Re: Forum errors

I hadn't intended to change the colors, but the latest version of the "Elegance" style removed the 7 different color variations, of which "steel blue" was the one we used here. I could probably use an earlier version of the style and get our old colors back. New version is "...

Dual, you sound “like, hey man” like you would be a great person to have a beer or ten with, “like” if we met in person. It would definitely be a blast! 🍻

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

Well you’ve covered a lot of ground, M. I don’t know if any of it has anything to do with Putin. But, our legal system does seem pretty messed up, in a multitude of ways. Perhaps Putin and his cronies are not involved, perhaps. Maybe it’s we the people who are most responsible. That’s even worse. B...

Re: Replacing Xfinity (Comcast) modem

Vinny, if Verizon FiOS is available in your area you might tell Comcast you are considering switching. Could be a good bargaining tactic to get Comcast to give you a better deal. I’ve had good luck bargaining with Verizon.

Have you introduced foods to your fiancee that she never had before? Besides XO sauce. It's mostly her introducing me to new foods since I don't cook. :D Thanks to her I tasted borscht for the first time!

Hey there Smithers, don’t get discouraged and down on yourself. There’s a reason old guys are still valuable for their sage knowledge. We too were once non-discriminating instant common-sewers.

This year I obviously set and all-time record by doing the first one a few weeks ago.
Was this due to unseasonable warmth?
Probably not. Vinny was mowing last year’s grass/weeds/shrubs all enhanced by gallons of human based nitrogen compounds. ;-)

Everyone knows about haggis, Mountaineer. O0 It’s too extreme to not hear about it.
