    That’s great Ali. I hope you find what you’re looking for.

    All I can say about that generation (and they truly are the greatest generation) and why they kept things to themselves is what I know from my father and my father in law and my neighbor. Those guys didn’t believe in self promotion or drawing attention to themselves as it was looked at as being selfish.

    I’ll finish the quote from my neighbor that I posted above:

    “I came home, many didn’t.”

    Those in my building seem to be on top of things although I found a mess literally behind a car in our parking lot the other day but we also have a hotel right near us that has dogs and they never pick up a thing. Even worse are those who have picked up their dogs "gifts" then simply chuck the bag anywhere but in a garbage....don`t get it

    I like him better than what they substituted him with. But, then we wouldn’t have had this guy

    This is one of the many reasons why King of the Hill was one of the funniest comedies ever

    Just saw online that a young police officer was killed in Virginia and she grew up in Hudson, NH

    2013 New Hampshire high school graduate killed in line of duty

    Officials said Newport News, Virginia, Officer Katie Thyne was killed Thursday night during a traffic stop. Police said a driver accelerated after an encounter with Thyne, dragging her. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where she died of her injuries.

    The driver fled the scene before crashing a short time later. He was taken into custody, police said.

    That scene added nothing to the movie. Nothing! And it ruined the long wait to see what Jabba actually looks like.

    Does anyone here use Apple TV or Apple TV plus? How the f*** do you get that app? I have a smart tv but it's not available as an app for it, and we got a year long free subscription that we want to use. I'm baffled and I'm certainly not watching shit on an ipad because that's just stupid.

    From what I know Apple doesn’t integrate it with most smart TVs especially ones with Android TV. You can cast it from your iPad, but I don’t even think it’s integrated with Roku.


    All part of Apple being Apple...

    Good news as my Norwegian forest cat is back home. Our neighbor across the street brought him over yesterday, he was in their backyard. We brought him to the vet and he was generally in good health. Other then being sore, tired and dehydrated being on his own for 5 days, with the temps dropping to -14 Celsius at night. We rescued Oreo as a abandoned kitten in a barn at my wife's workplace, we are thrilled to have him back. My dog Shiloh is so jealous of the attention she is not getting since Oreo is back. Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    Welp.....I gotta do something. Blood pressure way too high and belt size way too big.

    I have this being deliver3d next Saturday.
    Commercial 2950 Treadmill | NordicTrack

    If I disappear afterwards it probably means I croaked.

    Although I do like the idea of walking my old neighborhood or beaches or Paris and London.

    Here goes nothin’.

    Good for you. :)

    I've been thinking of going down to our newly renovated fitness center at the apartment. I need to put some action with that thinking.
