  1. Here is why some businesses fail - crappy takeout

    I've tried to be a good doo-bee the last 13 weeks. I stayed at home when we were supposed to stay at home. I didn't hoard anything I didn't already have hoarded for just such an occasion. I'm a stay-at-home cook. I'd rather cook myself than go out. A far cry from who I was 15-20 years ago...
  2. Boat wiring question

    So I've beaten on the connections to my trolling motor for 10 seasons this year. Well, this is 11. Shocking. Anyhow, the connector between the breaker and the battery is starting to wear out. The brass is gonna split in two at some point. So I'd like to replace it. What the flip is that...
  3. I'm on theFoodStampz!!!!!!!

    OK, not me, my son. I guess our school district is somehow got enough kids in it that qualify for free school lunches that everyone gets free school lunches in his school. I'm not so sure this is legit, but bokay! It's not like we live in a poor community. Far from it. Although if they...
  4. You know it's a slow news day. . . .

    Front page. Above the fold. Monday's Taunton Gazette and Brockton Empty-Prize. https://www.enterprisenews.com/news/20200509/mothers-day-miracle----easton-teen-has-surprise-home-delivery-of-healthy-baby-girl Basically Mom is so happy that her 17yo daughter delivered her baby in their...
  5. Making the Mass Pike

    Fascinating movie. VERY LONG (42 min). Very 1950's delivery. I expected someone to come and sell me a Chrysler Entabulator at any moment. I just can't believe in less than 2 years they had the whole thing built. From virgin forest to completed roadway. Then I look at the project to widen...
  6. Littleton Residents - We need your help!!! - FFL Attack underway

    Alert | Littleton FFL's Under Attack | Vote NO on Article 16 - GOAL.ORG Can't find anything under Littleton. Shocked Jack hasn't posted it yet, so I thought I would just in case.
  7. Anyone with experience buying FNMA owned R/E?

    There's a house on my street that's been vacant for over a year. I did some hunting and FNMA owns it. A local bank did the mortgagee sale and now it has been deeded to FNMA to get rid of it. It's a year later. Nada. I contacted the R/E agent in the area that seems to handle FNMA sales - he...
  8. New Study on Student Loan debt

    'An important step forward': New Chase research reveals true weight of student debt Clearly they weren't math majors. How do you get a degree and then figure that 17% of your income is going towards debt repayment???? I suspect they didn't think about it. They thought, "well, I'm here to...
  9. Boat motors - are they really this much of a PITA

    So my 9.9 Merc 4-stroke is BACK in the shop. I think it "might" be bad gas. It'll start, but won't stay running. Like an old motor with a bad carb. If you pump the ball, it'll keep running. But obviously that's not a smart strategy. I've had this thing for 9 years now. It's a 2007 IIRC...
  10. Remember to get your nasty-a$$ free donut today

    honestly. I think if someplace gave away crap on a pita there would be a line. Dunkin has the worst donuts. You are better with the ones from the supermarket. Traffic snarls ensue. To save 89c.
  11. Active duty to Guard

    My son/SIL/firstborn/lastborn found out, with 2 years left on a 6/2 AF contract that he could go Guard for 4 years and be done. Allegedly the GI bill still applies and he get BAH for the 4 years. He learned what he needed to learn. He wants out. My worry is that this is a crappy deal. In...
  12. Arrogant Warren Buffett Thinks He Can Fix Healthcare!

    Warren Buffett describes Haven's plan to improve health care while controlling costs Warren Buffett describes Haven's plan to improve health care while controlling costs Sure. The major part of your plan is. . . . . something about controlling drug costs??? What about needless tests? How...

  14. Metropolitan Moron Mandates Meaningless Meatless Monday’s!

    A modern day Nero fiddles while NYC burns. New York City School Menus Go Meatless on Mondays What a guy. City is going bankrupt and he’s worried about meatless Monday. As if it would do anything for anyone. Besides likely raising costs in the PS system. I think he actually believes this...
  15. What have you seen lately?

    It's been an interesting week for me, wildlife-wise. The other day, I looked out of my window overlooking the Braga Bridge and every bird in Fall River was in flight. About 100yds from my window, one bird was flapping crazily and trying to go straight UP. At that point, I realize he's not...
  16. I Am The Night

    No thread on this yet??? Strange show. Not sure I like it. Chris Pine being very not-Chris-Pine. The young girl is odd. She's in The South with her black momma and her hair is short and sorta curly. She gets to LA and her hair is suddenly long and straight. ????? There is no plot yet...
  17. Moon phase and Deer hunting, aka Are You Gonna Be In the Woods on Fri?

    Not a deer hunter. I'd like to, but I don't have time or place right now. I've HEARD and read that moon phase is huge for deer hunting as it regulates the rut. Is this the WRONG full moon or "a" right one? Was last month better than this one? Are you tooling up for a long day in the woods...
  18. The Daily Show

    I've spent a lot of time watching old comedy re-runs on Comedy Central. (Mostly That 70's Show - very well done.) There are COUNTLESS adverts for the "news" shows on CC that are effectively just anti-Trump shows. Several have come and gone as people don't care. They had The Opposition with...
  19. Who saw the rainbows yesterday?

    Yes, we all saw the one/ones near Fenway. I left work at 2:30 b/c I had to make Gumbo (priorities) and drove from FR up 138 to Taw'n and had a BRIGHT THICK rainbow in front of me the entire way until about the Taunton border. I don't think I've ever seen a rainbow that bright. I don't think...
  20. Be careful with regional slang. . . . .

    As you might recall, #1 Daughter married what I consider my 4th child this past Summer and lives in Missouri because he's in the Air Force and that's where he's stationed. (I've tried to get him stationed at my house. The Air Force says I don't have any planes. I'm not sure what that has to...
