    After taking the screens off 3 windows to discourage squirrels from my bird feeder this Spring, one learned to play acrobat and do a flip under the gutter and land on the feeder. It's so comical, I just fill the feeder half way and enjoy his...

    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...

    mold maker replied to a thread Opioid/heroin crisis? in Our Town
    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...

    Can cause your hair to stand up just before your pucker string fluctuates, with staining results. Once in an aluminum boat and again standing on my front porch. Now when the first hint of it is noticed, I find safe shelter. The concussion of it...

    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.

    mold maker replied to a thread Charles Krauthammer in Our Town
    Everybody forms opinions on misinformation at one time or another. I don't fault Charles for his anti-gun leanings. His foresight in most matters was spot on, and his intellect made him a person to pay close attention to. Above all he had real...

    Over a couple years I mined and smelted over 7 tons of range lead and they considered it a favor. I sold in excess of 400 lbs of jacket material and scrap brass. What other hobby pays you to participate? Kinda proves you can save money casting,...

    mold maker replied to a thread Tinnitus ! in Our Town
    The cicadas, crickets, locust or whatever keep me company when I'm alone. Especially when I don't want company. It's just a sad fact of life that we get smarter too late to avoid it. As a child, I grew up alone at the other end of nowhere. I...

    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...

    Jim, I've saved a small fortune on exercise equipment I didn't have to buy to satisfy my Dr. All he ever advised me to do was loose weight and take these pills. I figure I lost about 20# a ton working up all that lead. Now my major concern is a...

    Don't forget to whisper something to get them to listen intently before using the whistle. Don't most phones and such now have noise limiter circuits that even out volume levels? I used to use an claxton (auguaga for you young folks) horn to...

    With age comes a softer voice and when my wife faces the other direction and softly talks, all I hear is muffeled murmer. Why does she always face me and speak loudly while calling me deaf?

    Every couple of months, I gather them up and send them with a PT person to distribute at a rehab center. He says they are very popular among the residents there who are being streached and bent to improve their ailments.

    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.

    Just because the computers made it possible, is absolutely no reason for the anemic print. I can't read it and not being a comic book, the print is more important than the big HD colorful pictures. While I understand that smaller print saves extra...

    During simpler times we conversed with each other any time conditions allowed. Now it's hard to get the attention of others without electronic connections. We've lost our ability to spell out thoughts without a special code. In the evenings we...

    The only time it's more than a nuisance is at night when the normal background noise dies. Then the crickets all join in to make it hard to drift off to sleep. A boring TV program drowns it out, and the boredom puts me to sleep. I was always...
