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

DH's last day at his current job was today. Cut backs, they said. Getting old-er, but very experienced in what he does, but nothing on the horizon, just one little bit of interest wanting him to be...

Re: Only at the DMV

I had an appointment for the "Real ID" in April, which has now been put back until August. There are two DMV's nearby, so just chose the one which is less busy, and is in a slightly nicer area with...

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

Really p'd off today. DH and his immediate boss got the shove today. Company said it was "consolidating" BS. DH is only a few years off retiring, and is unlikely to get even something similar in...

Re: Long Distance Mover?

We used Golden Van Lines, when we moved from the east coast to CO. They were really good. All depends on the crew that you get. Massive truck, but we moved a car in there as well as the household...

Re: Do Lays taste like Walkers or do Walkers now taste like Lays?

When I first tried crisps, it was Smiths, with the little blue twist pack of salt, then they went on to the little square packet, you had to tear open.

Re: Do Lays taste like Walkers or do Walkers now taste like Lays?

I loved the Walkers Prawn Cocktail flavour crisps and the other little round prawn cocktail flavour thingys that melt in the mouth. If I get a real hankering for them, I need to do an online order. ...

Re: July 4th - anybody doing anything nice?

This should really be in TIO. July 4th was a bust for us. Dog came off worst in a fight, and had to go to the emergency vets, as our usual one was closed. This was about 11 am we took him in and...

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

A very minor thing in the midst of others much larger troubles, (hope they resolve soon). We had to get one of our Boxer dogs put down on Friday. He was sick with lymphoma, but took a turn for the...

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

There was one of those nasty little stinkers got behind our small fridge in the outdoor kitchen, and there was only about a 2 inch gap at the side. One of the dogs was sniffing about there, so there...

Re: The perfect place....

How about Laguna Niguel, CA, or nearby towns on the coast. On the coast, good weather for most of the year. The downsides are very expensive property and possible earthquakes and/or tsunamis. ...

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

Is there any security cameras close to the place where the [email protected] hit your truck? Might be productive if you ask companies, neighbours etc, if anything was picked up.

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

I was at the vet's yesterday with one of our dogs, and it doesn't look like good news, but we will know more after the results of the scans and other tests come in. He is almost 11 and we have had...

Re: It's trivial but still irritating

Re: Boston Neighborhoods

Concord, Acton might be to your liking, but might be too far out of Boston, but on the train line. We lived even farther out, walkable town center, but 10 miles to train.

Re: Social distancing grocery store etiquette.

Re: It's trivial but still irritating

A few days ago, our neighbour gave us two huge, almost size of soccer balls, grapefruit. I cut into them today as DH wanted some grapefruit juice. Very dry and juice less, and just looked odd...

Re: FDA revise guidelines for blood donation

It's not as if the US doesn't have BSE and CJD and vCJD. or do they think they are immune from it. I would have given blood years ago if it wasn't for that ruling.
