re: What are you reading? - TAJSJ
Just finished the "Coyote" trilogy by Allen Steele. Decent read. I give it a 7 out of 10. Trying to read "Spindrift" now as it is an offshoot of the Coyote story. About 1/4 of the way in and I'm not really feeling it. May set it aside for a while to do a re-read of the "Hyperion Cantos" by Da...

re: Free or cheap book resources? - TAJSJ
I use 2 sites for free Kindle format Ebooks. Mostly independent authors. Both sites search Amazon daily for free books. Amazon has a notoriously crap search engine for ebooks, especially free ebooks. These sites do the searching for you. All legally free. No signup required. Updated daily. Bot...

re: A family member with dementia and telling them they can't drive - TAJSJ
Been there. Mom had dementia before she passed. Believe me...taking away the car keys was one of the "easier" things we had to contend with, compared to what was to come. Luckily I have several siblings and we were all on the same page as to how to handle the situation(s). Everyone pitched in. I...

re: How did you find new music pre-internet? - TAJSJ
[quote]The sad part is that he and I had similar tastes in music, and he would have loved to have played more stuff. Unfortunately he, along with every other PD in the country, believes this garbage and stick to it.[/quote] Did he really believe it or did he just have to toe the company line and ...

re: How did you find new music pre-internet? - TAJSJ
[quote]Well the radio didn't suck back then[/quote] This is correct. Especially with early FM radio. Most rock stations would play complete album versions of songs instead of the shortened AM versions. Also most FM DJs didn't blab useless fluff that drowned out half the song intros. They would...

re: How did you find new music pre-internet? - TAJSJ
Really interesting topic MDS. Gonna really date myself here but in early 70s my friends and I would swap and make copies of 8 track tapes. Yep...8 tracks. Nothing like listening to a 5th generation 8 track but we played them loudly & proudly. Mid to late 70s, when FM radio really started to take off...

re: Water Heater troubleshooting - TAJSJ
Most likely a blown lower element. That's usually the cause of running out of hot water too quickly. Good chance to clean the lime deposits out of the bottom of the tank when/if you change it out....

re: Could DirecTV dispute signal the beginning of the end for Weather Channel? - TAJSJ
The final straw for me with TWC was when they started assigning names to winter storms. I think they over-stepped with that and they are arrogant enough to expect the rest of the weather services to follow their lead. Oh and....I despise Al Roker. I won't miss them one bit....

re: The Steeldrivers - TAJSJ
I love the Steeldrivers...with Stapleton. They are still solid with the new front man but let's face it, Chris is what put them over the top. What is up with him anyway? Leaves SD, forms the Jompson Brothers (did not care for them), now he's trying a solo country thing? I wish he would figure it...

re: Were you a Boyscout? Would you sign your kids up for boyscouts? - TAJSJ
Sounds like your son signed up for Cub Scouts not Boy Scouts. Huge difference. I made Eagle in 1980 and have been involved in Scouting ever since. Also am the father of an Eagle and a second one well on his way. The biggest problem with today's scouting program is the "professional" scouters. M...
