re: Trampoline - Insurance related - FCP
I paid a surveyor to draw my home lot lines as small as possible (we were building in the middle of an empty field). Anyway, because of the way the lot is drawn, I have our pool built on the surrounding property. I've specified for the home insurance company that they are not insuring that part of m...

re: What would Trump have done differently with Brittney Griner if he was still President? - FCP
Trump did a meeting in the DMZ with the fat little NK dude. Rolled over there like a boss and met the slimy SOB. Also did an unannounced trip to Afghanistan for Thanksgiving one year. Anyone who can do that would've handled the Griner deal without breaking a sweat, and I do think Trump would have...

re: Farmer still uses trucks and equipment from the 70s to farm - FCP
[quote]with his 4020[/quote]Still have 2 of those in semi-daily use on the farm. Both 1968 models. All original in pristine condition. Worth a premium when we bought them (late 80s/early 90s) and worth a small fortune these days....

re: What are you getting your kids for Christmas? - FCP
Three mid-teens. Lot of stocking stuffing crap that my wife puts together. Their "big" gifts: Nice drone ($400) Driving school enrollment ($500) American Girl dolls/paraphernalia ($450) Maybe a family trip. They're campaigning for Bahamas. I'm thinking more like flying out west to see Yel...

re: Olive Garden manager fired after harsh message sent out to employees about time off - FCP
I'm on the manager's side here, but, damn, she sounds like an intolerable bitch. Zero reason to put all that crap in writing. Three sentences would have sufficed: (1) Call outs are a problem. (2) More than one employee call out in 30 days will result in termination. (3) Thanks to all who show up...

re: OT Doctors: Why is Tamiflu only available with prescription? - FCP
[quote] some abuse worry?[/quote]I've enjoyed some good times through modern chemistry. Tried just about everything short of LSD at least once, but the worst trip I've ever had was on Tamiflu. shite had me curled up under a table in the corner of a room, convinced "they" were coming to get me....

re: Do you like your job? What do you do and why do you like it? What do you make? - FCP
No. Engineering. I don't. Not enough. Best job I ever had was law clerk for a midsize firm while I was in law school. Pay sucked but made my own hours, came/went as I pleased, and worked with a great group of folks. The actual work was legal research and writing briefs which was actually fun. ...

It's some variation on soups, sandwiches, and pastas (or their leftovers) for every meal. Three hungry teenagers who will eat anything not nailed down--this food thing is getting tough....

re: Alternate Route from Alex to Denham Springs - FCP
We usually drive down 71, get a pie at Lea's then on to 190, over the old bridge, then take I110 around the airport to Hooper. To Central and onward to DS/Watson. YMMV. Like someone else who posted above, I'd probably detour through El Paso if Waze told me to....

re: Why don't parents hit their kids anymore? - FCP
[quote]Why don't parents hit their kids[/quote][quote]they can't discipline their kids[/quote]Two different things IMO. I was brutally beaten as a kid--spankings, beatings, whippings which left me with whelps, bleeding, and permanent scars. My folks were big believers in the whole "spare the rod,...

re: Did Amazon completely remove expedited shipping from Prime? - FCP
[quote]Especially since I never used music[/quote]Especially since Prime Music is crap now. Before, you had a limited set of songs/albums, but you could play anything in that library on demand. Now, if you select a particular song, it plays something "similar." You can listen to specific albums, but...

re: How This $4.8 Billion Walkway Is Redefining Atlanta - FCP
I'm still trying to wrap my mind about a $4.8 [b]BILLION[/b] project. 22 miles = 116,160 feet (5280*22) $4,800,000,000 / 116,160 = $41,322.31 So, it cost over $41K per FOOT? Did they at least give the City taxpayers a reach around?...

re: Would you ever consider buying a electric car - FCP
Absolutely. I'd buy a Tesla tomorrow. FWIW, I'm an old gearhead. Built and rebuilt engines from lawnmowers to cars and on through 150HP farm tractors. I don't believe ICE will ever be fully supplanted. OTOH, I had a chance to drive a Tesla back midyear, and that thing is a goddamn legitimate spor...
