Re: Costco

Our local one is not so big as some others. Not such a big wine selection as one I used to visit near where DH used to work. BooHoo. I do agree with the generous return policy, and has the...

Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

Not the same area, we're about 30-40 miles east of LA, and the last time there was a brush fire near here was about 10 years ago, so my neighbour tells me. We had smoke and some ash from a fire...

Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

Not today, but yesterday. There was a 10-15 acre brush fire on the hill across the main road from the estate we live on. Really smokey. Water drop helicopters around, and it looked like some red...

Re: British Airways Boeing 747s

Went on a 747 to JFK from Manchester years before 9/11 and was allowed up to the cockpit when we were over Newfoundland. That was a real treat. Only other time was a couple of years ago, and the...

Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

Just say that you have other plans for those dates. It's easy if they live 3000 miles away, but a bit more tricky if they live 3 miles away. To quote the old saying, "just say no".

Re: work situation, double standards or am I being overly sensitive?

I would probably say nothing to either this woman or the new hire guy, apart from strictly work related stuff, and give them broadly similar tasks and number of tasks, then neither can complain of...

Re: Avg living expenses Southern California

I would guess the electricity would be around $150-$300 per month. It will be high in summer, depending on a/c use and size of property.

Re: Avg living expenses Southern California

I would say about $2500-$3500 for rent, depending if it's an apartment or a house you will rent. That might include hot water and heat, but it might not, depending on the property. There are plenty...

Re: Lost my Mum today.

Sorry for your loss, Guindalf. I would go to the funeral. Would you have gone if your sibling hadn't come up with the "selfish" comment. It's maybe just grief and shock talking on her part. It...

Watching Concert for George. It was recorded in 2003, but still good, and did make me smile (a lot).

Re: What made you smile today? Part III

One of the dogs snuggled beside me on the bed, and the other down by my feet. Makes a good start to the day, and one of the simple pleasures in life.

Do you need a travel companion? That's on my bucket list as well. Maybe one day I'll get there. Lucky, lucky you. Enjoy.

Re: 90 Day Fiancee ... the Show

Sometimes you just feel like giving them a shake, just to try and bring them to their senses, if they had any sense in the first place. I sort of feel sorry for their family members trying to get...

Re: 2018 WEATHER THREAD

It's supposed to be 102F today and 106F later in the week in our part of southern CA. I like heat, but this is getting ridiculous. It means having to have the a/c on most of the time and having a...

Re: HE is coming - hints and tips

Get large sheets of cardboard and write in very large bold letters, BOO and GO AWAY. Don't put them on sticks or poles as the police will have them classed as a weapon.

Re: What made you smile today? Part III

Congratulations, Sugarmooma. That's wonderful news. Your little granddaughter sounds like a darling little rascal, but better out the cat flap than down the loo. Goes with toddler territory.
