Late this afternoon I will probably run the central air conditioning for the first time in 2016. The forecast high for today is 101 and for tomorrow 106. Some years i have made it into July before using the air, but not always.

We do occasionally get snow but the summer is nice here. Even with some higher than average temps, we are currently at 72 degrees on my porch this afternoon. Summer is my least favorite season. Everyone is different--there is no way I could tolerate 90 plus degree heat.

Tornado warnings along with severe thunderstorm warnings. Where I live, they passed right over but still warnings until 11:00 pm for us. It's hot and sticky today

Thanks, NYgal. So far they have and they haven't been interrupting stations for updates for quite some time. It was every 3 minutes or so. Hope the other towns/cities survived okay here. Haven't heard otherwise yet.

Can someone please tell me what I need to do to change my member name?? (NYgal2NC).

No longer moving to NC, so it would just be NYgal

Thanks.

There's already a NYgal.

Go to "search" - then "advanced search" - then search for whatever name you want. If it comes up on the list, it's taken. Try another one until you find one that isn't taken.

Contact the senior admins: Marka or *** with your request.

OK - *** *** not so not sure if this means he/she is gone. Look in the Forum questions for the admin names.


Stop that!! It use to 12yak12 (without the numbers).

Hi everyone.

Permit me to share a true story I've retold over the past year to several different people I know ...

A while ago I was talking to a lady about retirement. She was praising the gated 55+ senior community she moved to. It was as if she was trying to sell me on the idea of moving there when I told her my own retirement was just 1 - 2 years away and I was looking forward to downsize and simplify my life.

The gated senior community she resides in is located in extreme southern Delaware, down below Dover in the "Delmarva Peninsula."

She described the place as having a variety of homes - apartments, townhouses, and modestly size 'villas'. It is well kept well maintained, the lawns are mowed, nice landscaping, amenities including a couple of tennis courts, a large swimming pool, and a clubhouse with rooms available for entertaining and regular activities for the residents.

I was told that I would be pleasantly surprised how affordable the place was (she was correct - the home prices and monthly fees were extremely competitively low and within reach even for newly retired blue collar lower-middle class people on a budget.)

"Oh it's just like heaven! We have Bingo Night, potluck dinners, and 7 days a week there are always canasta and bridge games going. We love to play cards in the clubhouse and talk about our grandchildren. It is heaven, I tell you!"

Heaven? I was thinking to myself ... sounds more like HELL! If I was stuck in a clubhouse playing canasta with a bunch of old fogies talking about their grandchildren somewhere in godforsaken rural southern Delaware I think I would have to excuse myself, go to bathroom, and slit my wrists.
