Major League Baseball took care of the problem many years ago.

Instead of widening the plate, they just narrowed the strike zone. Now, you have 9 happy batters, and a pitcher who will make 15 million a year if he can just keep his ERA under 4.50.

Tramadol helped me when my back and/or knee bother me.  But the insurance will only allow me to order 7 pills at a time before i have to call the Dr. for another prescription. 
When I was in Cabo, there was a pharmacy on every corner (no Rx required). I loaded up on Tramadol and Amoxicillin, and Lisinopril for HBP.

I never take more than one Tramadol a month. When I do, I get a good buzz.

I mostly quit fakebook last month. Too much negativity even on groups where there should be no negativity.

Back in this forum's heyday when there was a lot of traffic, there was also a fair amount of negativity. Threads had to be deleted, and members had to be kicked off. The Carr's Corner forum was born from the negativity here.

Local FB groups can be brutal. There's one in my town that I had to quit because absolutely everything I said, somebody bit my head off.  But I really enjoy the upholstery groups on FB. What some would consider "negativity", I see as diversity. I enjoy the wide range of viewpoints.

Is it some type of elastic webbing? If not, it's probably loosened up since it came out of the factory.

I think all the avatars are gone now. As are the smileys and font options. The forum has been "dumbed down" quite a bit. Not much traffic here any more.

I like the example of garage sales crap items being priced at 10 cents each and a lady asks if you will take 5 cents each.


It wouldn't matter. You could have an item priced at $100, and the lady would STILL say "Would you take 5 cents?".

When we have stuff to get rid of, we decided a long time ago that we would rather find a needy family and GIVE it to them than to be haggled to death at a garage sale.

I find myself in the same situation every now and then. On one hand, you probably could've held on to that sofa and got a lot more for it. But on the other hand, you're not really in the flippin' business and can't have stuff like that taking up space for very long. It's a catch-22.

So why do you guys have that "Rouge" thing? I always wondered how that would affect NFL games if the trailing team could chip away at the lead 1 point at a time.

I have air tools for most of my impact needs.

I do have one cheapo electric impact drill from Harbor Freight. About $30 I think. I occasionally use it for drilling into my brick wall, or concrete floor.

I don't think there is an appreciable difference in quality between any of the major brands anymore. They all have downgraded their tools to make their price points conducive to selling at retail giants like Lowe's and Home Depot.

The biggest problem with cordless tools is the same as it's always been. When the batteries wear out, they cost almost as much as a whole new rig.

There was 4 inches of snow
Crews were out clearing the roads.

One man driving a snow plow noticed a car following him everywhere he went. He stopped to ask why.
A blonde rolled down her window, and explained that her husband told her to always follow a snow plow to insure that the road ahead of her was clear.

The snow plow driver said "That's very good advice. I'm finished with the Wal-Mart parking lot now. Wanna follow me over to Kroger?"

I think me, Ed, and Chris are all in the midst of our 60th year on the planet.

It's Gene and Paul that are older'n dirt.

My doctor told me that for every mile I run, I could add 21 minutes on the end of my life.
I replied "Yeah......but it takes me 22 minutes to run that mile, so what's the point?"

I have a lot of customers that will ask "Is it cheaper if I pay (wink-wink) cash?"
I gladly accept cash. But I don't offer any type of discount (such as forgetting about the sales tax).

It's funny how aware people are of CC fees now. Yet back in the day, they blindly paid extra at the grocery store for the privilege of saving those stupid Green Stamps.

As a kid, I saved those Raleigh coupons from my grandfather's cigarette packs. And yup, got me a transistor radio. My grandfather swiped it from me and traded it for a fifth of whiskey.
