    Are you finished with your subbing job, AC2? Glad you are back!

    Sorry, just finished up my meeting and everyone left so just getting back here. Haven’t seen anything about the Jersey Whale since the NJ credit rating was downgraded again last week.

    I have a Sonos wireless HiFi system, can control it from my laptop, iPad or iPhone, nice quality sound. I usually have a classical music station playing in the “background” while I’m doing other things. And I can move it from room to room or onto the screened porch.

    When I was at Wayne State, at one point I had a sweet young receptionist (a student) who was simply agog when I told her that there was no TV when I was a kid. She simply couldn’t imagine a world without TV. And this would have been in the 90s. When my now 15 [...]

    I had a couple of closets like that, back in the day. Now that my kids are grown and I live alone, they’re mostly tidier (but my basement is a Fibber McGee’s closet its ownself).

    There’s no “http://” in front, so perhaps that’s why?

    Oh yes, Ozzie & Harriett! I had forgotten that, we listened too. And Lone Ranger, I think. And Walter Winchell!

    AdBlock Plus is your friend. Sunny here this morning but still chilly. I think it is to get back into the 70s toward the end of the week. And there is fog here, too, although starting to burn off. I have a committee meeting here in about 45 minutes, so I will be out for [...]

    I just looked at the San Francisco radio again. Not only does it have the bridge, it has FOG!!

    Oh those are beautiful radios. Thanks, cmaukonen, for a very interesting post. I especially like the San Francisco radio with the Golden Gate bridge! I am old enough to remember listening to the radio when I was a kid, no TV in those days. Fibber McGee & Molly was a favorite, and not because of [...]

    Good morning BT and Crane and others just wandering in. Hope your bad day gets better, BT, and that you are OK.

    I saw it everywhere! Hopefully the message got through! I had the spinning wheel up top, but nonquixote complained (gently) so I found another picture for the post.

    Concurrent with my new front door and sidelight (and all of the molding around them) I have to put up a new doorbell because the old one went away with the old installation. I just discovered that the new wireless doorbell “talks” to the old wireless receiver inside, so I don’t even have to replace [...]

    Can you disconnect that cable? I’d be less worried about an ethernet cable than an unknown WiFi connection.

    That’s a good idea, kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. I’d like to hold out just a bit longer before I turn on the furnace. According to the forecast, it won’t get out of the 60s again for about a week, and will be into the 40s overnight. May be difficult to [...]

    It got down to 48º overnight and I had windows closed, now the painter is here painting my front door and it’s wide open and pretty chilly. I resisted turning on the furnace last night, hope it warms up some today. I am so NOT ready for fall. Except it is time to make soup [...]

    I don’t either, and I have no special setup. Maybe it is security by obscurity or something. But lots of ads for enlargement of “equipment” I don’t possess!

    I use Gmail and they’re pretty good about filtering spam, which winds up in a folder so I can view and delete it without opening. Usually I may get one or two a day, tops. A week or so ago I had an absolute deluge of “penis enlargement” spam. When I signed on in the [...]

    This is an inexpensive 5 cu.ft. freezer that I got (through a local grocery) for $99 with the purchase of $100 worth of food. I think they run about $150 or so at retail. It is a perfect size for me, but omits such niceties as a little “on” light. I certainly don’t go into [...]

    Thanks, good point. I don’t think of it that way, but you are absolutely correct.
