Snow ice cream?

Okay, it's July. Not usually a time to think about it, but I did today. No idea why. Used to have this a lot as a kid, every time we had a big snow, which back then happened a lot more then, than it does now. Did you guys ever have it? I'd go out with out biggest pot, into a big, white drift, and ge...

Re: Thor Love & Thunder

Got my tix for Love and Thunder. Friday morning, July 8th, 10 AM. Saw Top Gun: Maverick today. It's a perfect Top Gun movie, a great sequel to top off the First movie. My wife and I both really enjoyed it. And it's every bit as much a fantasy as Thor movies! But they did a nice job with Val Kilmer, ...

Re: A Really great Idea if We Weren't so Divided

So name me one thing conservative that you support There are lots of conservative things I support, but the problem is the GOP is no longer a conservative party - it's the Trump corruption party, that believes in turning our nation back over a century, and loving dictators like Kim and Putin. Plus,...

Re: A Really Feeat Idea if We Weren't so Divided

Cost is relative. Considering it would benefit every person in the country the cost would not be that high. And Thank you for making my point on if we weren't so divided.

The rest of the South. I wasn't aware Boston was in the South. In that era you would be hard pressed to find a city that wasn't racist by today's standards. It was 68 before African Americans were permitted to do my dad's job at Goodyear. Even then they had to start out as an assistant and other th...

All you care about is that they have that (R) next to their name. And there's NOTHING they can do, nothing whatsoever,...

You can't buy a house in LA without signing all manner of papers regarding mineral rights. There's nearly always some old lady somewhere who owns whatever you would get from some oil company or other. There are also rights of easement, and all that other legal stuff. Big mess with beach real estate...

This is an old piece, from 2021, where Ted Koppel went to Mt. Airy, NC for a piece for CBS Sunday Morning. It's about the town that Andy Griffith based the fictional town of Mayberry for his long-running Andy Griffith Show. He grew up in Mt. Airy. I saw the Koppel piece when it was first shown, and ...

Joe, that goes on in a lot of places. I do not own the mineral rights for my property. They were sold long before I bought it. Around here it is sand and gravel quarries.

We have had this discussion. It’s getting somewhat tired. Not my party. I don’t own it, speak for it, claim it or control it anymore than I do those things for the Democratic Party.

I won’t react any differently than I did during the last election. I don’t speak for anyone else. What will you say and how will you and your party react? As we always do. We will accept the will of the people. You guys don't like that - that's why you work to oppress votes of people you don't like.
