Great news, Vic! I just accessed the Uber site and service is available in your area. The cost of your ride will be under $200, round trip.

Please call your physician's office and tell them that you definitely will be there April 10th.

Ok I called the Urologists Office, and told them that I can't drive to St Marys Regional Medical Center in Apple Valley CA cause of car trouble on April 10th, I have had to put off surgery until I can get the car fixed, most likely in May 2017, there is no Medical Transport, and I have no one else, it's just Me, I'm on My own out here.

Vic, download the Uber or Lyft ap to your phone. Uber to your appointment and I will send you a check that reimburses you for the costs of transport.

I take it that a Condo is a Condominium. Am I right in that the difference between that and an apartment block, is shared communal areas? What we would call a block of flats over here.


A condominium is an apartment that is owned. It does not, typically, involve shared communal areas. An apartment is rented, a condo is owned. That's about the only difference between the two. Houses out here are outrageously expensive, so lots of people buy condos first, build a little equity, and then upgrade to a house if they can.

My sister was walking through some tall grass and a wasp got in her blouse and was stung 7 times before she could strip it off.

No modesty on this one in front of everyone. LOL


Eric and I used to live in a condo and we had a cat whose food bowl and litter box were on our tiny balcony deck, three floors up from ground level. One morning I went out onto our deck wearing a long nightgown. There was a wasp in the cat food bowl that I hadn't noticed. My nightgown swept over the bowl and the wasp flew up my nightgown. It was not a pleasant experience.

Eric experimented with water cooling his computer system once. Given the number of algae strains he managed to grow in our garage, I was sad that I didn't know more about botany.

The following picture best expresses my opinion on water cooling:

Some of you never knew that I was once a mod. For a very short time, I was among the annointed ones.

If I am correctly remembering seti "ancient history", there was a time when seti used an "auto-mods" system. A forum program noted which accounts posted most frequently and automatically gave these very active posters mod-buttons. The thinking behind this system was that those who posted most frequently must care the most about the forums, and would therefore be the best stewards of this sacred place.

Oh sure, you all laugh now!!!

Anyway, mistakes are not mistakes if one learns from them.

Yay Fred!!! Long may he reign.

Just out of curiosity. What phone did you get?

Actually, Eric got it for me, after years of nagging on his part. I use a Nexus 5 and Eric uses a Nexus 6. We're both on Google Fi.

Sigh.... if only their numbers totaled "one".

There are two viable responses to people who appear to be only posting in order to set fire to powder kegs.

Option one is to respond calmly and rationally. Point out fallacies and refrain from name calling.

I'll admit that sometimes, this is difficult to do.

Option two is to not respond at all. We all know the worst offenders... those who seem to post for the pure joy of upsetting others. We have it within us, as a community, to strip these people of power by ignoring them. Few things would upset them more.

I'll admit that sometimes, this is even harder to do than Option One.

President Donald Trump appears to have little regard for science.

President Trump has stated that he thinks global climate change is a hoax. It is not.
He has stated that vaccines cause autism. They do not.
He has stated that US healthcare workers infected with Ebola should not be let back into the country to be treated. Thank goodness he wasn't president last year.
He has stated that he does not think that public health spending returns a good investment. Smoking cessation education, drunk driving laws, vaccination programs and water fluoridation all indicate otherwise.

Eric and I are planning to participate in the March For Science taking place on April 22nd in Washington DC

If others are planning to attend, please post here or drop me a pm. Perhaps we can march together, or at least meet for coffee?

If you cannot go to Washington DC, but still want to participate in this public demonstration, look for a local march in your area. I know there are several planned in the SF Bay Area and there is probably one near you.

You're all a load of street cred posers :-))

I finally bit the bullet and got one of those darn smarty-pants phone thingies.

I begrudgingly admit that there are aspects of this technology that I now find very convenient. If that makes me a street cred poser, well... so be it.

It will be very interesting to see how life evolves on several different planets. Interesting to see if plants, animals, fungus are on other worlds or if it takes an unrecognizable path.
