    I ran into that when I parked in a handicap spot at Walmart. This rather young woman screamed at me to get out of HER parking spot. I asked if she had handicap tags... nope, no mirror tag either. I have the mirror tag. Sure I walk okay going into...

    mold maker replied to a thread Fast food tipping?? in Our Town
    A tip is supposed to be a personal "Thank You" for above and beyond service. I grew up in an era when 10% was a good tip. If the service you are tipping is the same, why do they expect a higher percent in a tip? The food/hotel price has increased...

    Unless you've experienced that level of chronic pain, you can't imagine the need. I passed a 5X7 mm kidney stone and had 9 teeth pulled at one setting without anything but regular ibuprofen. That said, the constant pain in my lower back is another...

    Use care adding the MS as you can create an explosive atmosphere, in an enclosed space, compleat with static electricity. Also, too much can cause the dirt to stick to the brass like specks of hard wax, which is extremely hard to remove. I add a...

    Sounds like something a liberal politician would think up to solve a none existent problem. Sometimes corporate lawyers have to do something to make themselves indispensable.

    Remember that that flag, no matter how tattered and worn, is still personal property. To remove it without permission and cut the rope is breaking the laws it represents. Publishing a picture and the phone # is a great idea that will likely get...

    Look under the front leveling foot on the washer. The mold might be what fixed the washer. After all, you left it on the top for him to use.
