I read the reviews. I can't imagine wasting my time on this example of sludge.

Nah, Gand, my accountant takes the max for me because I take the church store cast offs to the Salvation Army twice a month, she gets me the mileage and everything. Thanks, though, good advice for anyone donating that doesn't do it regularly.

Went to Carp O Rama with my son and great-granddaughter on Saturday. Great way for three generations to spend time together.

Default Weird threads in other City-Data forums

I never go to the Relationships Forum, but just now scrolling down the list of General Forums to get here to Retirement, I noticed this thread title: "Can your girlfriend or wife kick your butt?" I didn't even click on it to see what people were saying, but I'm still chuckling about the absurdity and soap-opera quality of it! There are truly all kinds of people on City-Data. I'm just glad for the special rule that no nut cases or immature people are allowed here in the Retirement Forum. LOL

Am I the only one who had to perform a search to find out what "Carp O Rama'' is?

Perhaps she had just kicked the OP's and he was looking for moral support as (the) bullie does from time to time on the shoestring thread. On the other hand, he may just be bored out of his skull. But is this thread any more inane than the thread, "What are you eating right now?"

Speaking of shoestrings, here's a site that should be of interest to all. But for all of the bored geriatrics sitting home waiting to die or sitting in the mall consumed by lewd thoughts inspired by fourteen year olds it could open a new world.

Ian's Shoelace Site - Introduction

There are two new book reviews on my blog. One is first since I posted it last, but the other replaces a duplicate post that I could edit but not delete. It follows the blog entry marked "Privacy".

The shoelace site is fun but I like tying knots and that sort of thing anyway. My grandkids in FL wear sandals, flip flops, crocs or shoes with Velcro fasteners. Tying shoes was a big accomplishment when I was a kid. I'm sure they will learn at some point whenever they get shoes with laces.
