  1. I don't know how many roundabouts there are in Carmel, but I think I went through at least 20 of them today . . . which brought back memories of how hard it was for me to enter jump roping without tripping or being whacked in the head.

      Corn-y, a-maze-ing, radish-cal in a round-about way!

  2. Stopped to buy gas today. My vehicle said it was 8 degrees outside. There was a young man putting gas in his car. He was wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops. Is that supposed to be macho? Cause it just seems rather dumb to me.

      @Suna I read that as "pass" and not "get" at first. I was a little thrown. lol

      That's a thing people do now. I can appreciate not wanting to wear shoes but I'd be too cold

  3. The Fort is #10 of the top 20 coldest large cities in the U.S. which makes me feel more justified for my years of moaning, whining, and complaining. http://www.weather.com/news/weather-winter/20-coldest-large-cities-america-20140107?pageno=11

      After living in Fort Wayne for over 20 years, I never thought of it as being that cold. With the exception of this year, of course.

      I like your Hoosiers basketball team a great deal shecolt! Besides, Indianapolis people are so nice. BrentMc11, Jay Kirk, CM51, Gramz, & all INDY natives that I have come in contact with on this site. :) I feel like an honorary brother blessed by such good, wholesome, funny, & down to earth people. Thanks for allowing a fellow WI Badger into your inner circle. :D

  6. Getting a Colt's poster in the mail was a ray of sunshine in an otherwise cold, miserable week. My thanks to Nadine and the Colts for everything they do to show the fans how much they care about them. Even, the postage to mail all these posters has to be expensive as it cost $2.12 just to mail one to me. Thanks again and GO COLTS!

      Thanks shecolt. I just really like to see friends of mine get rewarded for all their hard work. Plus, you are a very kind person & I'm happy to see that selfless generosity get noticed. True, I do not know you personally, but the way you conduct yourself on here I can tell that you are a very understanding & laid back person. I appreciate the hug too. :D

      Some good old fashioned ingenuity was definitely used there. 1 Question or an observation: That inventor had both a paved, level, & short drive way. What if a person lived at the end of a long, steep, gravel based driveway surrounded by tall trees & thick brush that might interfere with that remote controller successful operational capacity? A remote rural setting as opposed to a urban suburban community etc. etc.

    3. southwest1

      I am not criticizing your friends incredible device shecolt. I am just merely pointing out that the device in question is not ideal or tailor made for every driveway or house location dwelling in a 1 size fits all winter blowing capacity that's all. Still a cool gizmo though. :)

      I thought I liked the idea of Thursday football for the whole year but now I am not so sure. Not to mention it didn't seem like but 2 of the games were even worth watching.

      How I wish they'd stopped it one week earlier.

      I've always found it uncomfortable - even on Tday. The short week leads to irrational results and is damaging to teams. I've always thought that it should ONLY involve two teams coming off a bye week.

      I love the prime time games, but to me a "Saturday Night football" would make a LOT more sense. Heck, if you time it off the bye weeks you can have Friday night football too. :)

      Well just relax as you probably need to get your mind off football for even just one day. Love Sunday nights though!

  9. A nail and a screw were hitchhiking along the road. My vehicle decided to give both of them a lift. Thankfully, neither the nail nor the screw was greedy and showed their gratitude by both jumping into the same tire.

      Sorry to hear about your blown tire shecolt. I like your storytelling technique though. It was very clever. Sadly though replacing a tire is never cheap or easy. My condolences. :(

  10. I splurged today and bought one of those Colt's glasses at Arbys. Now, I'm trying to decide if I want to put some royal blue food coloring into the milk I just poured into my glass.

      I am full on operation blue out!

  11. I wanted to treat myself to a roll of the Colt's duct tape that I saw today. But, I couldn't justify spending $6.69 for 10 yards of tape. So, I settled for a 30 cent box of crayons. Now, does anyone know where I can get a Colt's coloring book?

      @Princeton I saw the tape at my local Meijer store, but you could probably find it in other stores or online.

  12. I woke up to the dude on the radio talking about the possiblity of a derecho today. Please, NO! I had enough of that last year.

      It doesnt afect me much as all I do is drive to Drs , all quite close, & to moms assted living , also not to far,

      EVEN the ER i haave to go to to often to meet mom is only 4-5 miles away

      when i return a leased care they know they get a bargain as hardly any miles on it, but do know it greatly affects others

      On the rare occasion I go out with friemnds, they know not to let me drive in my medical condition

      crazycolt1

      Tell me about it! It's costing me a ton just to drive the 2 grandsons to football practice 4 trips a day. Now I get to pay for the gas to go to the games starting pretty soon. I think the farthest is like 60 miles one way.

      Hopefully it stays north of us, thankfully we are only in the 3-6 or 4-8 bands (depending on what you read).

      My best friend is looking at "24+". I just emailed him some helpful advice: "Don't be a hero. Remember to bend at the knee when lifting large glasses of scotch in your den."

      I don't like him either. Is it an ad strategy to be annoying and hence memorable?

      Never seen the guy. I have pop-up's blocked. Not just annoying, but some can be hazardous to your computer. No idea why I haven't seen on tv though - regional?

    4. shecolt

      He has been on the NFLN. I didn't catch much of last night's game, but saw him in several commercials also. However, he leaves his magnifying glass at home when he does the commercials.

  19. A month ago, I didn't even know there was such a thing as a derecho. Now, the radio tells me that we have a 30% of being hit by another one this afternoon. I long to go back to the good old days when I was so blissfully unaware of this cruel trick by mother nature.

      scary, hope that doesn't happen.. straight line winds beat up my town pretty good about 15 years ago, it looked like a class 4 hurricane came ashore, scary stuff indeed...never want to see that happen again

      Stayed south of me too on the last round About 2 miles south had nice showers. Storms stayed in KY.

  20. Insurance is giving me $28,500.56 to make the needed "super derecho" repairs. Now, the trick is to get all those repairs scheduled and completed.

  22. I'm sitting in the bank today, looking out the window, when I notice a man approaching with a shot gun. Almost wet my capris as I warned the employees. Turned out this guy was transferring his hunting gear from one vehicle to another. Why he chose to park in front of a bank to make this transfer is beyond me.

      After the scare wore off, I found it funny also. This was in a small town where things are much more laid back. And, of course, I was the only customer in the bank at the time. As my friends often say, stuff like this could only happen to me.

      @MAC The TV my husband blew up or out was "my" little 19" with a built in VCR (I'm still old school). I loved that TV and will be scouring ebay and craigslist to see if I can find another.

    3. shecolt

      Our power was only out for 6 hours this time as the storm was very tame compared to that super derecho.

    4. MAC

      Sorry shecolt. If it was me, I wouldn't buy a used piece of electronics unless I could try it out first. VCRs don't last forever in the best of circumstances (the head being off a little bit could result in it not working properly for you even if it worked for the previous owner. You can buy new combo vcr/dvd players for reasonable amounts of money, and after getting our modest sized flat screen I wouldn't go back to the old style if you paid me.

  24. At first, I thought that "Malware Monday" was a hoax. But, after hearing about it on several reliable TV channels; I did check to see if my computer was infected. Happy to say that I am not!
