Special news report the cathedral was going through a renovation could be a contributor to the structure fire.
flames are 250 foot high - doesn't look as if any attempt is being made to fight the fire.

I haven't looked for a link - watching special news report.

Prom night

We went out to dinner on a Saturday night - restaurants are very busy - check in get a beeper. We're seated dinner is delicious. The workers are setting up tables for a large group.
When here it comes - a parade of young ladies in their gowns and the young men in beautiful suits - it was sweet.
I had a flash back - way back (1974) when I was 16 yrs. old in my gown for my Prom.

Did you attend a Prom - if not why?

Good cameras?

Apr 11, 2019 - 1:04 AM - by faisalahmed
Well here is my story. I've never really been into photography or anything of that nature. But my dad decodes about 2-3 years ago that he doesn't want to pay 800-1000 for a professional photographer to take pictures at my sisters Quincenera. So he goes out and buys a Sony DSLR a100.
I tried to learn what I could and took some pictures but... [Read More]

Medical Marijuana - Tax Deduction ?

Apr 09, 2019 - 8:29 PM - by Patsy Warnick
Patsy Warnick's Avatar
Tax Time.. Woohoo

I'm asking - here in AZ you have to qualify for a medical marijuana card.

In the state of Washington - marijuana stores are on every corner - take your I.D. and purchase as if your at any other convenience store.

Medical costs are a deductible so I'm asking is or should medical marijuana be a deductible?

What do you say?

Threatened closure of Mexico border

It is no secret that our border on the south for a long time hasnt' been more than a line in the sand.

A constant frustration to me is neither party ever did anything about it, now there is somebody who shares my frustration, Donald Trump. Though I consider him a loathsome creature I am 100% behind him on this.

Kansas Says Goodbye To 3.2 Beer

I love drinking beer, but I don't handle alcohol well.

What a wonderful thing when I moved to Kansas where I could drink a lot more without being all stupid again. It was like 3.2 was an answer to a drinkers dream.

Oh well, must find inner restraint again.

That's what the BBC reporters claim anyway.
Not surprisingly, militaries across the world are also backing research in to quantum sensing.

Gravimeters in particular offer the potential for detecting your opponent's submarines, for instance. Gravity may be a weak force, but you can't shield against it.

old scientific electronics

Mar 12, 2019 - 9:45 AM - by vallero
I am a new member, (as in 20 minutes). I don't know if this the forum that I looking for, but it looked promising. A friend has been a collector of scientific instruments such as tube based electronics, vacuum systems etc. for many years. Being ancient (circa 1970) and tube based whether they will function or not is debatable. However he no longer wants them and they are free to anyone who wants them, and of course the recipient prepares and pays all shipping costs. That is something to... [Read More]

Do you think President R.A. Trump should consult with the Chinese?

I wonder if this so-called wall between U.S. and Mexico will work. The thought occurs to me that perhaps his lordship should consult with the Chinese as they have built a low dividing wall between themselves and Mongolia (I think ! LOL )

Gordon Banks, dies at 81 years. World's Greatest Goalkeeper?

Feb 12, 2019 - 6:56 AM - by G#Gill
G#Gill's Avatar
I felt privileged to speak to Gordon Banks on the telephone. He rang to book a charter on our charter/trip boat in the late 1980s. He was quietly spoken, very polite and grateful for my help ! I can remember saying to him that I was privileged to be able to speak to probably the finest goalkeeper in the world. He thanked me and sounded genuinely surprised that I knew who he was and that I'd said that to him !

I like Tucker Carlson. Often he makes me laugh, then other times I sit gagging.

I really like his perspective on blackface by the Virginia governor.

Wearing blackface is fairly common on the elite left.
