RE: Health rant

Travelnutz, I'm happy to hear both you and your wife are doing well at 80 yrs old. I'm less than 2 years away from that number, and I'm doing well, also. I hope, when I reach 80 I'll be doing as well as both of you. Although I'm handicapped from a stroke, I manage to live a fairly normal life. :)

Movie Recommendation

Occasionally I like to watch a good movie on the Internet, especially if I can find one without objectionable language (not easy to do nowadays, unless it's a G rated kids movie). If you have time on your hands, and you're hankering for a good movie, I'd like to recommend the following "I Dreamed of Africa". It's free on Based on a true story, Kim Basinger plays a lead role. Acting is excellent throughout, and you'll be treated to some nice African scenery. I won't go into detail on the plot, but would like to add there's no bad language and one very brief nudity scene, but nothing pornographic. I'd rate it PG. One more thing: have a box of tissues handy if you're especially sensitive, like me.

Throughout the pandemic, I declined getting any shots. I just used reasonable safety precautions, and have remained healthy. I just didn't trust having such a new, rushed medication injected into my body. As a matter of fact, I've never come down with any kind of flu or even a common cold throughout that time. :C

RE: Health rant

Eccl 9:11, "I have seen something further under the sun, that the swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor do the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all." How true, those words. I had been happily full time RVing for many years when a sudden stroke took me out of the picture 9 years ago. I was feeling great all those years full timing. It was a beautiful life that couldn't be matched living in a brick and mortar dwelling. Yes, the closing words of the quote mentioned above, "unexpected events", apply to all of us.

RE: Happy Holidays

"Bah, humbug" Miss my full-timing due to a sudden physical handicap! (Almost 9 years now) :M

RE: Replica of One of the First Cars (18th century)

Being steam, it could probably pull quite a bit. At 2 MPH you'd get there faster walking. Look where that beginning has brought us. Yep, pretty torquey, I guess. You'd be the center of attention pulling into an RV park, towing your RV. Maybe if a tranny with several forward gears were implemented, you could travel at highway speeds!:R

RE: Arctic Blast

Yep, it's coming to Amarillo overnight. Lows will be a few degrees below zero; high tomorrow, a balmy 10 above (just perfect for a picnic). To make it worse, strong winds will be added to the mix (Amarillo has the distinction of having the highest average winds in the U.S., or so I've read). I can't imagine what the wind chill temp would be, but wouldn't be surprised if it's below zero. At least no snow is forecast. :) I plan to stay indoors the entire day. I had the foresight to buy enough groceries and water so that I wouldn't have to go outside. The good thing is, by the weekend there will be a warming trend, perhaps hitting 60 on Sunday. :C

Replica of One of the First Cars (18th century)

This is a real hoot. The original was built around 1769, and is in a museum. Take a look. I wonder how it would work out as a tow vehicle? :R Click here Be sure to watch the second part of the video, as it's more informative.

RE: uBlock Origin ad blocker

Thanks for all the replies. Now I know why ad blockers don't always work. I'm learning!:C Anyhow, I certainly won't use Popcornflix any more. All those annoying comercials aren't worth it, no matter how good the film is. Besides, there are many movies I don't watch even if the plot is good because of the common usage of foul language, which I don't tolerate. Fortunately, westerns are usually free of the modern 4 letter explitives in common use today! ;)

RE: uBlock Origin ad blocker

try Adblock plus Thanks for the suggestion, Lantley. Quick question: is it permissible to have 2 ad blockers installed?

RE: uBlock Origin ad blocker

looks as if Popcornflix only works in USA Last time I checked, Amarillo is still in the USA, unless TX seceded from the union when I wasn't looking! :B

uBlock Origin ad blocker

I'm finding that uBlock Origin works great on one of my free movie sites (TubiTV), but doesn't work at all on another free movie site (Popcornflix). Popcornflix has some of the longest and most annoying ads I've ever seen anywhere. Does anyone know why uBlock Origin doesn't work everywhere, and is there an ad blocker that does (although the concensus of many others is uBlock Origin is one of the best). Thanks in advance for your assistance. Ed PS: I understand these sites need ad revenue to survive, but it's sometimes too much annoyance. I wouldn't mind one or two not-overly-long and frequent ads, but these sites pile on so many that it makes the movie virtually unwatchable. I find ads on YouTube movies alot more tolerable, and can often be skipped (no ad blocker necessary).

RE: Early Television

Didn't somebody once call television. "a vast wasteland"?

RE: A Pretty Good Movie

Here's another one. If you're a fan of trains, this one will keep you on the edge of your seat. I found it on (it's free). Name of movie: UNSTOPPABLE. I don't know if it's also on You Tube. Really worth watching, if you're craving a little excitement

RE: Looking for a Good Men's Hair dressing

Yeah, I guess being bald has its benefits (especially here in the TX panhandle, where it can get quite windy). I used plain water today after shampooing out any Brylcreem remnants. My hair stayed in place pretty well, but I'll be concerned about those windy days. I remember the Brylcreem commercial from many years ago: "Brylcreem, a little dab will do ya, Brylcreem, you'll look so debonair, Brylcreem, the gals will all pursue ya, they love to get their fingers in your hair." I think that was false advertising; I didn't have any gals pursuing me! :M

A Pretty Good Movie

I had some time to kill this afternoon so I thought I'd try to find a good movie (sometimes difficult to do these days). I stumbled on one: A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Found it on You tube ( it's free). It's quite emotional and enigmatic. I found myself choking up at times. I think the whole family could enjoy it, although there were some brief scenes that some parents may find objectional (nothing real bad, IMO). The director is Mr. Spielberg, so you'd expect it to be exceptional. The young boy playing the lead does an exceptional job, as well as the other actors. I won't go into the plot, but thought I'd just share. :)

Looking for a Good Men's Hair dressing

I'm wondering if any of you men can recommend a good hair dressing. I've always had a good head of hair, and even now, at 78 yrs old, I still have pretty good hair, although I'm noticing some slight hair loss lately. Right now, I have a tube of Brylcreem, which I've used 'till now, but it just has a greasy feel to it and I don't think it holds that well. I remember using Brylcreem in the past and it was somewhat more satisfactory then (I was a lot younger, and perhaps had thicker hair). So, if you have good hair now, can you give me a suggestion as to what you've found works best for you? Thanks. Mr. Ed

RE: Early Television

Ahh, yes...memories, memories. I remember, as a youngster, living in Levittown NY, somewhere around 1948 or '49, we didn't yet own a TV. Our neighbor bought one and invited us to come over and watch. Some of the shows I remember were Howdy Doody, Farmer Grey and Felix the Cat cartoons, Sabu, among a couple of others. What was amazing back then is so passé now. I also remember, some years later, you could buy a plastic sheet to stick on the picture tube with various colors in it to make your B&W TV into a "color" TV. Of course, it was a scam. As I recall, the top section was blue, the bottom brown (maybe green), so if it was an outdoor scene on the tube, it would show a blue sky and a colored ground. Dumb, indeed! :S

RE: Alcohol Detection Systems in All New Vehicles

I wonder, if a driver has very recently used hand sanitizer, would that be a problem? BTW, when it comes to cell phones, even though I have a Bluetooth connection to my phone in my vehicle, I don't bother answering a call when driving. The reason: I have a small device stuck to my dashboard, supplied by my car Insurance company, that lets them know my speed, how many miles I've driven and if I'm using my phone while driving. I don't really mind their snooping because it lowers my rate a little. You know, "a penny saved..." :W

RE: Coffee Quality?

Too bad there's no coffee plantations here in the Texas panhandle. So far, the Seattle's Best dark roast I mentioned earlier is working out OK. I'm adding extra half & half, plus using a little less grounds in my Mr. Coffee machine to counter the bit of bitterness. i'll look for medium roast next time (same brand). :C
