  2. Without water on our planet...life could have never evolved. Water was here before life was here. Chances are that life exists elsewhere in the universe without water...but I highly doubt it's complex life as we know it. With that said... There's a 99.99% chance that the water in that coffee you're drinking right now...passed through a dinosaur at one time.

    Well, I read that the Securities Exchange are going after these guys. (years ago I read about guys trading stocks with IRA money, I thought that was too chancy).

    Snail mail is becoming a thing of the past. The postal service here was losing money with cheap postal charges & markedly less mail now that emails are so popular. To survive, theyve increased the postage to $1 if it can take a day or two longer for delivery & extra if you want a fast service. What has saved them is ebay . Delivery of parcels is now a huge business.

    81 fir me Well I figured out why the rest of my test results weren't showing up online. That's because the doctor didn't submit any other tests. So now they want me to come back and do it again. *groan* Trying something new for the hot flashes. I can't deal with the ssri side affects anymore (and the hot flashes were coming back), so I finally managed to convince the doctor to put me on birth control. But she wouldn't prescribe more than 3 months and kept saying this is short term. And I kept saying, everyone is telling me this is going to last 10 years and has already lasted at least 3. I see a lot of fun in my future. *sigh*

    I have the screens. They were installed when the gutters were installed. Yes, leaves and pine needles build up on them and they don't blow off in wind and I get plenty of wind periodically. What I've been meaning to do is get one of those very long, telescoping poles with the heavy duty broom type brush attachment so that I can just walk along my one-story house and knock the accumulation of stuff off the screens before each storm. I live under a pretty complete canopy of oaks and pines. All year long, something is dropping. If it's not oak leaves or pine needles, it's pine cones or acorns. My roof/gutter/window cleaner guy is a saint for doing my job. The gutters on the house aren't bad. He says the gutters are perfectly clean inside. The screens keep everything out. It's the carport and deck awnings that are brutal for him. He pretty much told me one time when I procrastinated and waited too long, that he needed to come four times per year otherwise, it's just too difficult. Now I'm vigilant. I don't want to lose him! He's actually coming on Tuesday.

  15. On hindsight now OneEye, this is exactly how I felt ‘like a potential shoplifter’ you know what scared me the most, that awful walk back into the store, accompanied by the Costco personal, with an audience of-course, the mind races into six-gear, what on earth going to happen now? Look, I go to this wholesale at least once a month, and to my rant of anger, if this super-size, 13 size mukluk cashier, had done her job correctly in the first place, this wouldn’t have happened. (Sorry no disrespects to the obese folks). Arguably, had better days, where a simple innocent days shopping turned out to be an abhorrent attempt on one's persona, especially with all those cameras on you, reminds me of a TV series I watched years ago called, ‘no hiding place’ But that said, as I have a membership with Costco, I’m seriously considering having my stuff delivered. A page from your book OneEye. Would save all the belittling inconvenience.

    A great shot of a precious little jester. Thanks for posting it. 💕
  17. Of course, one suspects today especially in some tropical developing countries this method/process still exist, the source of catching rainwater still applies, but again science and technology in these developing countries I hearken to say, is still way behind the western society until the worlds scientist/technology catches up, they’ll tell you, the drinking rainwater is bad for you, until such time it’s my view the practice will continue. Unfortunately, the world is a changing, and the environmental impact has a lot to do with it, and I have no doubt, bottled water is the way forward. ‘Live into their high 80's to mid-90's drinking this water all their lives’. Look, Clint, if the water has some power of longevity, then, I’m all for it. 😃
  18. There’s no doubt about it, the bottled water industry is an absolute thriving industry worldwide. The demand for bottled water has been growing during the last decade, owing to health and wellness concerns. And looking at the number of known beverage companies around the globe there are also improving and follow suit. The bottled water industry was valued at US$ 185 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach US$ 334 billion by 2023, this is the forecast period 2018-2023. We just have to deal with the ubiquitous plastic bottle that hinges itself/incur to plastic pollution.

    In the US it stands for Individual Retirement Account, a qualified (tax sheltered) investment.

    I'm too old to be investing into my future although I guess for the future of the environment is ideal for the generations to follow. I do enjoy watching the tv shows that have people doing a quick make over for flipping houses. IRA? are they back on the scene or have I missed something?

    My feelings dont have to be justified.. theyre my feelings. I dont believe witchcraft or voodooism is appropriate for a civilised society. I object to my personal space being disregarded.. the notices on the gate are clearly defined. No junk mail surely is a statement about wasting paper & preserving trees etc. Our politicians here are in the process of making religious freedom an act of law, so if I as an atheist & environmentalist dont object then our quality of life will be affected .

    Why get upset about a religious zealot. It was put in your mail box by someone who carried their religion's requirement to preach the gospel to extremes. Don't sweat the small stuff--It's not good for your health. If it were me I'd find the address of their temple and mail it back to them along with a leaflet to an eye doctor , a literacy class and a small stuffed doll with needles in it. I'd enclose a note that said-- Because your people can't read or have trouble seeing enough to follow directions I'm sending info to correct that problem. The doll is because I've put a curse on all your kind. I wouldn't sign it , I'd just let them guess who sent it

    I got to play with her while she is here at the office. She preferred rolling in the weeds by the roadside to taking a walk. I managed to catch a hilarious expression on her face.
