    When I was 3-4 yo, my Grand-father broke off an icicle like that, and gave it to me because I ask. Taller than me and too cold to hold I put it on the oil circulator to warm. Somehow Dad didn't find the humor when he arrived. I didn't understand...

    mold maker replied to a thread Anniversary in Our Town
    When you marry the right one first, it usually lasts. Dated 3 years, and tied the knot almost 55 years ago. My parents made 62 years before Dad passed. Creating a close family is key.

    Not only what's written there, but most of what men know about women is WRONG!!!!! Most women only ask men for agreement, not opinion. The correct opinion is "Yes Dear". It took me less than 3 months before marriage, to learn (accept the wisdom),...

    In my previous residence, I had installed a gas furnace and was impressed, so I did the same here a few years later. The first was plumbed with black iron and the next with a flexible line coated with a yellow plastic. I never got an ad suggesting...

    mold maker replied to a thread Stupid cold in Our Town
    When I was a kid everyone had a cold and the major complaint was a week with a snotty nose. Now, it seems the nose drainage flows south and affects the throat and then the lungs for at least a week each and two trips to the Doc. Are colds worse or...

    mold maker replied to a thread Too much technology in Our Town
    My experience with after market add on accessories is dismal. Most are cheaply made at exorbitant prices and have a history of less than a years service before failure. Even the factory installed ones don't seem to last, but then YMMV. I'm...

    mold maker replied to a thread Too much technology in Our Town
    With all the smart vehicle technology why can't they make all cars with the ability of a remote starter? At my age that's a useful extra on just a few currently. The only time I had a vehicle broken in to was after an officer insisted I lock it...

    My MIL made a brew with white lighten and rock candy. It didn't do anything to stop the tickle, but you didn't cough again out of fear.

    Before cell phones and dial phones we had a party line and 3 digit phone number. It worked. You told the operator the number you wanted or sometimes the name and she connected you, period. I don't ever remember it failing unless there was...

    Who'd thunk, something as small as your toe could turn you into a whimpering little girl? And, by the end of the second night with no sleep, you'd consider a 44 HP as pain relief? BTDT, during a week long camping trip in the deep woods. I had to...

    I bought a used 2015 KIA for a granddaughter, and didn't know until she drove home that it only had one key fob. A second fob cost $28. more than a payment.
