We have those round vaccination scars on our upper arms here (those of us in my age group). It was a sort of air gun that shot it into us, no actual needles that I can recall. I think we were around...

Not to me. I'm the same way. I've been vaccinated (and had the booster), and I'm fine with that. But I don't want to see anyone lose a job over not getting the vaccine, except in certain lines of...

I was thinking the same thing. We went from a postage-stamp teeny yard to only about a half acre (with a big footprint for the house and driveway/garage), and I can't believe how much I HATE taking...

I would have guessed longer than that, since you initially bought it with your brother before you were married. And I've been in our "new" house now for almost ten years already. :)

Yeah, it's central air now. Worth every penny for us. I had begun to hate putting the window units in every summer and then taking them back out in the fall. Plus, as I said, the noise, the bugs, the...

We are required by our borough to maintain the sidewalks throughout the winter. So... no choice there.

Won't get any flak from me! You're young. And doing it for real estate is obviously a solid investment.

Plus, we raided our retirement account (at age 60) to buy GameStop stock, so.... :D

Re: Anybody serious about coffee?

That's "off" right now (or "nighttime") with the moon icon. It heats up to about 82 degrees F., which is really toasty without being uncomfortable. :)

Oh yes! It's automated too (since it's encased in self-leveling concrete and does need a few minutes to heat up so you can feel it). So we typically have it set to go on about a half hour before...

I stand by my assertion that anyone waving around anything that could possibly injure someone is also responsible to be sure it will not. And I don't agree that someone who might be anti-gun would...

Today's news adds that there was one live bullet in the gun, for some as-yet unknown reason.

Also, whether or not this matters, the prop manager(s) on the set were not part of the union but were...
