"Users will no
longer be required to register their phone numbers every two years, and
their numbers will be placed on the national list aimed at preventing
unwanted telemarketing calls and text messages. "Consumers can sign up once and not have to worry about whether their registrations lapse. "Also, new
registrations will be handled by the Federal Trade Commission's national
Do Not Call list, and those registrations will become effective the
following day rather than weeks later, as was sometimes the case with
the Wisconsin list. "Telemarketers
covered by the list have up to 31 days from the date you register to
stop calling you on your land line or cellphone."
Horseshit! I've been on both registries since their inception and I get 3 to a half-dozen, or more, telemarketer calls a day. I never answer and they never leave a message. If you Google their phone numbers, you see that there have been hundreds of complaints. The Do Not Call Registries are a joke (or scam).
After 30 years, I am moving out of Sturtevant. Here is one of the real finds that was rejected by multitudes! Impossible, you say. I cannot believe that no one would come over and grab up this wonderful TV! Look at that picture...look at that cabinet. Yep, about 27-28 years ago, we bought this CONSOLE TV new! I even offered it with the most sophisticated VHS Player! The price? Zippo, nada, zero dollars! And it swivels! Yep, took us about five or six years to figure that out! After we figured it out, did we ever use that feature? Nope...
We were going to tape a ten dollar bill to it and put it at the curb, but thought someone would take the ten and leave us this beauty!
Look at the clarity of that picture! Can you believe it only weights about a zillion pounds!
This work of art is now available at the Goodwill Store on Durand! Hmmmph! You now have to pay big bucks for it!
The VHS Player? Well, our dear friend SER grabbed that thing up in a heartbeat. However, he tried to escape the house without that great collection of VHS Tapes! Ahem, that was part of the deal! His media center is now the envy of the neighborhood! Even had the remote for it! I know you are all seriously jealous of his find!
Wish I could have seen you all, but there was just not enough time for us to get this project handled and entertain. Next time, we will be there for fun and games.
Oh, there is one other item still available (as far as I know) and that is an exercise bike. One with the big fan-type front wheel. The handlebars go back and forth alternately. If you are interested, it's still in the basement. The cost is the same as the TV! Dang, I should have tried to find some sucker ( oops ) customer for both of them!
Next time we are in town, it will be at the Holiday Inn on 20. They'll make us breakfast for FREE! Don't worry, we aren't gone out of your lives forever.You couldn't be that lucky!
In the meantime, we will see you around here or Facebook! Ta-ta!
Hello, my hearty hotcakes!How are you? I had the a/c on for only a little bit before.I’m afraid of the electric bill.I’m trying to survive on fans and breezes
only.Fat chance.August is usually the hottest month, so the
best (worst?) is yet to come.I feel sorry
for Ms. OKIE and Mr. hale-bopp for their hot locations.
Things have settled down here with the leaving of Señor
Zanza’s 15 “children.”I’m beginning to
think that they were little people somehow related to Señor Zanza’s “business.”
My, oh my.He’s a man of mystery, or a
jerk, or both.
I read about RUSD stripping most of their libraries of
books.Before they ship them to Africa,
how about allowing the people who paid for the books a chance to look them
over?I’m sure there’s many books there
that community members would like to have.
RUSD says that they want to make the libraries less boring
with more recent works.At this stage of
the game, I suggest that RUSD just allow students to watch television, surf the
net, and/or text all day long.For the
few serious students, give them the grades that they earned. For the rest, hand
out grades randomly.Win-win.
There just was the most amazing “light show” from Mother
Nature’s lightning in the east over Lake Michigan.They sky kept lighting up, but no thunder was
heard.A storm was passing through and
doing its thing out on the lake.Or
perhaps it was heat lightning.I don’t
know, but it was impressive, either way.
Remember to not stand underneath trees and other objects during
storms for “lightning protection.”Lightning can play strange tricks. There’s even “ball lightning” that
can shoot through your house.Are you
covered for that?You might want to
visit your insurance agent.
Thank you for visiting me today. I'm always open to new friends. I love the older ones,too.
"Members of the Racine Education Association are calling on the Racine
Unified School District to stop 'weeding' school library books out of
school libraries by the 'tens of thousands,' including the Bible, Koran,
and The Iliad & The Odyssey of Homer.
"The Racine Unified School District is purging 'tens of thousands of
books' copyrighted prior to the year 2000, according to a statement by
the REA. But Racine Unified School District spokesperson Stacy Tapp said
the district works with school staff members each summer to refresh the
libraries. “'We provide a list of books to the library media specialist to
consider pulling from the shelves because they are outdated, in very
poor condition, don’t align with curriculum or have not been checked out
in many years,' Tapp said. 'There are additional factors that are
considered as well. The school libraries have funds each year to replace
