I donated back in August. I have a receipt, but was never given credit for it, or a star. I can't afford to donate now, but I do see a star on one person who had trouble at the same time I did.

Well, the new look works OK on my computer, but is virtually unusable with my phone due to the huge scrolling times.

Edit: It's a little better, as I switched the posts per page from 1000 to 100.

Our turkey is cooked, and it is as good as last year. We won't eat for several hours, but the hard part is done. With just two of us, we don't have to prepare anything. Just cook it when we are ready. We do have a nice store bought apple pie!

Happy Thanksgiving! Our turkey is cooked, as it might rain later, and it is all cut up and ready to eat. It tastes excellent, and now that it is cooked, we can have our meal tonight. For just my wife and I, the rest can be prepared in minutes. I love easy!

I only cook for my wife and I, so if I screw up, it's no big deal. For those who may wish to try grilling a turkey, here is how to do it.

Take a rectangular baking pan maybe 2 inches deep. Put it in the grill directly under where the turkey will go. You may have to remove an upper grill rack if it will be in the way. Load up the charcoal all around the baking pan. Pile it high, but not so that it falls back into the pan. Light the charcoal, and let it get going. Put the turkey on a grill rack just over the baking pan, so it catches the juices. Put down the grill cover, and wait for the little pop-up to release.

The flavor is out of this world, and the turkey will be a smoked brown color when done.

In New Hampshire, studded snow tires are legal year round. In some states, you can only use them in certain months. They make a slippery drive much safer.

If they have a fresh turkey Wednesday when I go shopping, we will get it, and grill it. Last year I charcoal grilled the turkey, and it was the best turkey I ever ate. If they don't have any fresh ones left, then I'll just have to suffer and go for steak! Yummy!

We had our first snow last night, of a whopping 1.5 to 2 inches. The roads were icy, and several cars either went off the road or rolled over. I love my studded snow tires and 4 wheel drive!

I broke a rib last night.
Ouch.

Tripped over Purrball.
The silly kitty just wants to be so near me all of the time.
And sometimes does not step out of the way because she has just come to trust me so much.

I crashed hard, she was OK, but I went down very hard.

I laid there for an hour or more........Purrball of course, was licking my face.

I am OK now.

I love my kitties sooooooooooooooooooooo much.

Meow.

I hope you are OK Mark. I once broke a rib sparring in martial arts. I still won, but it hurt like a SOB. The next class, I applied a heavy roll of sprain cloth.

Then I would say we are not getting our money's worth.
Toward the end of September, 8 people came to our company to describe the different insurance plans. All of them were drawing salaries before the doctors received a penny. That just doesn't seem effecient to me.

Actually, manufacturing jobs increased by 17% since 2008. Automation has helped keep wages low. For me, health care nearly bankrupted me, and some of my friends, who owe over a million dollars. With a single payer health care system, I would pay less than half in taxes that I currently pay in health insurance. That would give me a lot of upward mobility. The US pays I think 2/3 more than any other country, but is rated 27th, and 29th in education. France has the best health care. I have no political affiliation, but as an engineer, I look to the solution that works best, with using the least amount of code (money).

Would those folks wish to give up Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and Defense completely?

Steve


I'll give up my favorite government program if you'll give up yours.
Then we can create a more fair tax system to pay for just what we really need.
With more money in our pockets I bet more people would be able to fund more chartities and save more and even be more able to help themselves.
Sound Good?

What is it that we really need?

Maybe folks in the more rural areas *don't want* subsidized healthcare or other social services handed to them from the government?

I could go on, but all this election has done is shone a light on just far we need to go to achieve equality. These things might not effect you, but they are very real to me.

All persons running for President, and if elected. Must endure the lies, hatred and vitriol directed against them. Just a normal part of the process.

The lies, hatred and vitriol directed against her. Has nothing to do with her gender.

Hillary is getting Equal Treatment. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Bollox.

This link agrees with you.

Oh, think how much the economy would improve if they sold claymore mines to the general public.

I asked a coworker of mine, if there was a pistol, that shot nuclear rounds, should the public be allowed to have them. His answer was absolutely, as that is what our second amendment guaranteed. That seems a wee bit excessive to me.

I think the main problem is distance. There may be many instances of life. Some microbial, some just learning to make tools, and some already extinct as well as every mix in between. The distances are just overwhelming.

I am very sorry Mark.
We have had cats be put to sleep, and pass away in our arms.
There is no replacing the loss either way.

I am told my fathers diagnosis is ALS, and kidney failure. He is in home hospice now. No more treatments or doctors. There is a lot of uncertainty at the moment, for a lot of reasons not mentioned.
