    I am a lousy multi-tasker. When I was in the nuke pipeline, I finally resorted to listening to music and watching TV at the same time to get better at it. As a kid, I could read a book and...

    Here's a shout for new stuff.

    I bought my washer & dryer in 2001. They've been moved 5 times. They still run. Occasionally, the washer does try and walk out of the laundry room, though.

    I'm pretty good at missing turns if I'm talking with passengers in my car. If the weather gets ugly, I'll usually tell anyone in the car to shut up, I don't need the distraction. Most of the time,...

    Nice thought, but considering that I have managed to change from jeans to a dress while driving a stick shift, I'm not sure the logic really holds true. Didn't try putting on pantyhose. Before you...

    It's worked, more or less, for my parents for the last 40 years.

    Dad's an introvert, doesn't like going out much; Mom is pretty outgoing & likes going out. Dad's left, Mom's right. He's Midwest,...

    Another car buying thread

    I need some validation from a bunch of total strangers. :D

    If you don't want to read the novel - is it ridiculous & extravagent for one person to have 2 cars?

    The novel:

    I have 2 cars. Car...

    I wouldn't bother with the bug bombs. I did it on Sunday. I think it just pissed the little devils off.

    I'm dealing with the same thing - my neighbor's got their house bug-free, so the bugs moved into mine.

    On dealing with your landlord - check your state landlord/renter laws. I'm pretty sure...

    Seemed to me like it died a few years ago, when it became an all out battleground. It was still up, but pretty useless.

    Just saw that ExtendedTrot is staying around, which is good, I have a...

    That could have been me. My first choice was Marquette, followed by Carnegie-Mellon. I went to Indiana-Purdue, Fort Wayne. :( And lived at home. :( :(

    I got a half ride to the first two, but...

    My gut tells me that a draft horse isn't going to be a huge problem - a friend of a friend shows draft horses in that general area - IN-IL-MI-WI. They won't be hunt type draft horses though, closer...

    My parents have become those people who never lock doors. They did when we kids, but now apparently it's easier to not to.

    So one Christmas a few years ago, we were going to Christmas Eve Mass at...

    It wasn't the 80" they had a problem with. It was 3 cuts from the same bolt. If you had asked for 240" (6.66 yards :eek::lol:) they wouldn't have had a problem. They don't do multiple cuts on the...

    I get so tired of the complaining about Christmas stuff in stores. In case you haven't noticed, it's actually arriving LATER than in years past. When I worked retail (JCP) in the late '90s we got...

    Ranks right up there with "Oh, But it's my passion" which is also usually used to justify self indulgence at the expense of others.

    When I was deployed, I set up a joint checking account with my Dad. Parents got the horse & 2 cats for 6 months. Similar to what Bluey said, I had a couple hundred extra in it, and had an auto...

    That sounds like peroneal tendonitis. Another circle of foot hell.:no:

    I've had it on & off for 4ish years, came with the 27 ankle sprains. It's back on right now. A walking cast does wonders...

    This to me, is just dumb. If you fix the horse, honestly fix the horse, why not?

    I'd keep my options open.

    Put a price on him but don't actively market him, unless you could use the money (i.e. school loans, dying car). Even if he is for sale, there is no guarantee he'll...
