• I'm invited to a reunion of people I haven't seen in 40 yrs, go in medieval garb, bring old keepsakes, to recount tales of our "glory days"?

    Mind you many of them have maintained their activity in the club through all these years. I have only friend-ed a few through Facebook recently. I have no costume, no anything from that time. I have health issues, I don't know if I want to bolster everything I've got to go. Your thoughts?

  • Is anyone aware of laws against front yard vegitable gardens in your or any other location?

    Yes, I heard about the Michigan woman's issue--which seems more about the LOOK of her attempt at raised bed gardening, with too much bare dirt & un-planted beds for her neighbors (who are the ones pushing the issue).

  • Best truck tires for a Chevy 3500 Dually (214/85/16) We pull a 36 ft. 5th wheel & the occas. heavy load?

    I've found BF Goodrich at $120 & Dunlop for $130 both have 60K mileage. The Sears guy says the BFG is better for our usage (we don't use our truck for commuting. We need quality for pulling the RV & every now & then for hauling a load (1 pallet) of floor tile. Thanks in advance for your opinions & stories (good OR bad)

My question is: Since I don't get taxed on my SSD unless "our" income is over a certain amt, would we benefit from filing "married, filing separately"?, would that get around the taxes on my SSD because of hubbies income?--Yes, I could go through the whole process with Turbo tax, but I've been at this for over 8 hrs. just today--there were a few hours just gathering all the info, just to find out it's better to take standard deductions--ARGH!!

    I moved recently to an area where a ham operator (or at least his antenna) lives, oh, about 2 narrow streets away from me. I've noticed in more than one cell phone conversation to a person some 150 miles away the occasional (male) voice with a word or two break into our conversation--though I can't make out what's said, nor do I think it's intentional. I might also add that we both live near several Naval bases and to make it more confusing, though we both live in Florida, our cell phones are still with Arizona phone #'s (yes, we upgrade roaming capabilities --*228--as we travel about). It's not a big issue, I'm just curious. I've lived near one that broke my wi-fi connect every time he cued up & had to relocate our RV within the park we were at to get past that inconvenience. And I've had the experience of CB-er chat coming through my stereo speakers quite a few years ago when I lived a few blocks away from an interstate--for awhile on that one I was beginning to think my house was haunted--lol. Just curious, any opinions appreciated.

This just started recently after I downloaded an adobe and/or FF update. I'm not great with terminology so If you know the fix to this please keep it childishly simple. btw, I just downloaded the absolute latest version of FF, and it seems worse. Oh and also, a whole lot of the icons next to my bookmarks went away & are just squares w/little lines (like a sheet of paper?). I'm on a Dell desk top.--Should I try to down load not the latest Adobe or FF but the one before that--if that's even possible? I use my multi tabs a whole lot & this is very frustrating. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
