  5. Our forums aren't really for selling things Cal, they are mostly for information and interest. However, if you post a photo of your clock radio perhaps someone would be interested.
  6. Happy Birthday, pat (aka reclaimer) ... wishing you all good things for the next 12 months

  8. Last week
  9. It appears that enough of us will have returned to the land of wi-fi connectivity and home cooking to have a quorum for our next meeting. After, our two week hiatus, please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EDST) on August 26th, 2017 [12:30 A.M. (GMT)], August 27th, for a discussion of Death Every Seventy-Two Minutes by Adam-Troy Castro. We discussed Castro's The Assassin's Secret in late July. Based on reader feedback following that chat, I found another story from that same author for our next meeting, this one much different from and a bit shorter than the former. This story tells the tale of a man plagued by nightmare like premonitions of his own death, each death the result of bizarre, unlikely circumstances. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. The story is available on line at: As usual, the chat will be in the #readers_corner chat room on Webchat: mIRC Users: /server -m -j #readers_corner I hope to see you all at our chat. Don't forget to bring a friend.

  11. From an email Elusive Butterfly sent me. Thanks, EB, very funny lol Most of our generation of 60+ were HOME SCHOOLED in many ways. 1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE. "If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning." 2. My mother taught me RELIGION. "You better pray that will come out of the carpet." 3. My father taught me about TIME TRAVEL. "If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!" 4. My father taught me LOGIC. " Because I said so, that's why ." 5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC . "If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you're not going to the store with me." 6. My mother taught me FORESIGHT. "Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident." 7. My father taught me IRONY. "Keep crying, and I'll give you something to cry about." 8. My mother taught me about the science of OSMOSIS. "Shut your mouth and eat your supper." 9. My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM. "Just you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!" 10. My mother taught me about STAMINA. "You'll sit there until all that spinach is gone." 11. My mother taught me about WEATHER. "This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it." 12. My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY. "If I told you once, I've told you a million times, don't exaggerate!" 13. My father taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE. "I brought you into this world, and I can take you out..." 14. My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION . "Stop acting like your father!" 15. My mother taught me about ENVY. "There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don't have wonderful parents like you do." 16. My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION. "Just wait until we get home." 17. My mother taught me about RECEIVING. "You are going to get it from your father when you get home!" 18 . My mother taught me MEDICAL SCIENCE. "If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they are going to get stuck that way." 19. My mother taught me ESP. "Put your sweater on; don't you think I know when you are cold?" 20. My father taught me HUMOR. "When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me." 21. My mother taught me HOW TO BECOME AN ADULT. "If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up." 22. My mother taught me GENETICS. "You're just like your father." 23. My mother taught me about my ROOTS. "Shut that door behind you. Do you think you were born in a barn?" 24. My mother taught me WISDOM. "When you get to be my age, you'll understand. 25. My father taught me about JUSTICE . "One day you'll have kids, and I hope they turn out just like you!" This should only be sent to the over 60 crowd because the younger ones would not believe we truly were told these "EXACT" words by our parents….

  18. Earlier
  19. I thought so.
  20. That sums it up very nicely lol
  21. And he only listed 'some' of our deterrence forces.
  22. We've got E-2Ds out there in Iwakuni (Japan) now, we've got F-35Bs with III Marine Expeditionary Force, we've got an all-Super Hornet air wing, and in a couple years we'll have F-35Cs out there. We have Virginia-class submarines making lots of deployments in the Western Pacific, and we also have high-end upgraded [ballistic missile defense] shooters in our DDGs. And so that, combined with the TPY-2s (radars) we have in Japan, the Patriot (missile defense) batteries, provides a pretty good umbrella as far as ballistic missile defense. As far as partnerships, we're in our 64th year with the South Koreans and the treaty, our alliance that is the foundation for peace and stability in the peninsula and in the region in Northeast Asia. … We do a lot of exercises, we have two major exercises under U.S. Forces Korea commander Gen. Vincent Brooks, Key Resolve and Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, that we show the North that we're ready to deter any aggression. With those exercises and those partnerships, I think on a daily basis we show the North that we're ready to effectively stop them if the need arises. Vadm Joseph Aucoin Commander US 7th Fleet West 2017 Conference on the situation in North Korea ( we're ready to effectively stop them if the need arises. ) And NOW he has the best damn guided missile cruiser in the whole of the US Navy, and my dear husband.
