I don't have a web cam, I threw the answering machine in the trash, I have not used credit cards in 15 years or more and I have no cell phone. I buy nothing on-line or watch on-line or pay-to-view movies. I do have caller Id on my corded land line phone and if I get a call from a number I don't recognize such as other than family or friends, I simply do not answer any more and I never call back.
My reasoning for my trashing the answering machine and watching the caller ID was because I was getting calls wanting to speak with my wife. If I answered, I would tell them that I would like to speak to her too since she has been dead now for almost 7 years. Sometimes the caller id states "Unknown" and I figure if they don't want me to know who they are, they don't need to know who I am.
You've got the right idea, AW. I disconnected my landline phone because of too many calls trying to sell me something. I only use the cell phone, so that all my calls are from family, friends, or business associates to whom I have given my phone number. I would love to get rid of the landline entirely, but I have to keep it in order to use my computer. I hate credit cards, but I have to have one so that I can order merchandice I need online. Unfortunately, I don't get out to shop very often. However, we are credit card "freeloaders" because we pay the bill entirely when it comes in at the end of the month. That way I don't pay any of the exorbitant interest rates that credit card companies charge.

Good morning, everyone. It's raining hard in my neck of the woods. I had to bribe Stein to go out to his tree this morning. But, rain is better than snow. When I lived in New England, I dreaded winter. Now that I'm acclimated to Kentucky temperatures, I could never go back. I'm on my third and last cup of coffee for the morning. I'm getting as bad as Hempburn with the coffee addiction. But, I've been reading that up to 4 cups of coffee is actually good for your health, and may be protective against cancer.

I think Juan Valdez is pulling your leg on the Coffee, so he can make enough money to send his pack mule to college.

I don't use a cell phone because it does not get a signal down here in the boondocks where this old hermit chooses to live. I can't get cable tv or even use an antenna here either, so I have to use a Dish or not watch tv at all. I don't shop online or buy any extras. I buy groceries and chicken feed once a month and pay cash. I can control the land line by watching the Caller ID and just refusing to answer unless I already know the caller.

Surprisingly after refusing to answer for the last few years, I don't get that many calls anyways. You can't book a hotel or fly commercially without a credit card, but I don't do either. I only travel to where my old truck will take me on gas bought with cash.

Good morning Roaming from your Scottsville neighbor. It is lovely at this old shack this morning. Raining but the birds are hungry. I saw a sparrow, a Bluejay and a female Cardinal. The female Cardinal was feeding on my birdseed. I know this was a female Cardinal, because she was wearing high heels and earrings. I bought me a bird book just like the greatest bird watcher on here has. It is so cool, how to see 4,000 species of birds in just one day. I'm going to have to break down and make some soot suet cakes though.

LOL, You may be right about that, but I got the info. from reliable sources; ie, New England Journal of Medicine. I miss those Juan Valdez commercials. I forgot what brand of coffee he was advertising.

I live in the country as well, but I'm sure that I am not as secluded as you are. I have some neighbors that are within walking distance, but not really close. My closest neighbors are wonderful people. They treat us like we are family. That is very lucky for me. We've lived next door to each other for nearly 15 years. I don't think that I would ever find anyone as kind and thoughtful as they are.

Jackie Gleason always had a good line about Mrs. Olsen and the coffee that she advertised with an accent "It's the richest kind". He said he could not understand how an old Swedish woman would know anything about coffee. LOL

Mr. Scruff, do you have some extra outdated flea market peanut butter and chimney soot you could email me? I really need to make some soot suet cakes for my birdie friends. Yours might be too, but my 3rd Wednesday crazy check is as thin as spider webs right not. If you don't have the peanut butter at least send the soot. Thanks.

I also liked what Jackie Gleason said about being poor. He said when he was growing up and the sheets wore out, they would make pillow cases and when the pillow cases wore out they would make hankerchiefs, and when the hankerchiefs wore out, they would cut up the pieces and make a new sheet. LOL

I think we had some of those.

Hello Una. Man I'm telling you what, last night was a rough one. A big old bat found its way into my shack and flew around in here until it woke me up.
I turned on the light and seen that sucker, and thought it was heebie jeebie stevie come to get me.
In a panic I grabbed my shotgun and blasted that thing! Now I have a big old hole in my fancy tin roof with rain just a pouring through it. What a night.

It must have rained non stop all night long, the little washtub under the hole in my roof is half full, that's optimism right there.

Good morning everyone. Interesting posts since I last posted. Nice for a change.

NOPE, I did the same thing when I bought this laptop. Covered the webcam with a sticker and never activated the fingerprint sign in feature. The gov't got my fingerprints years and years ago when I went to work, haven't had them take since then and will not put my index finger prints out into the WWW signing in this computer.

My landline phone catches all spam calls and my cell phone is used only for calls and texts. Don't surf the web or FB, add aps (that you agree to them accessing all your's and your friends' info to use) or anything else. Don't have GPS or want it. We are falling for all these gadgets that track us on an hourly basis. Don't think so.

I never put anything personal or pictures on FB and only have 26 friends to keep up with. That got FB to put a notice on them to help _____ find friends. I was pissed. I put up an annoucement to my friends that FB should mind their own business, I have all the friends/family I want on facebook to keep up with. Don't know how people keep up with hundreds/thousands of FB and all the crap posted by each. Their "timeline" version sucks and now they are inserting "recommended sites" in your page. I am about to dump the whole thing.

Rained hard early this morning, now just dreary gray and getting cold. Looks like the midwest got a snow storm and Eastern Ky might get some snow later. Brrrrrrrrr, I was hoping the midwest would keep it. We aren't suppose to get any here in northern Ky. Fine by me.

I hope you all are staying warm and having a great day so far. It sure was nice to see the thread so clean once again. Hope it keeps up that way.

Have a great day!

I could send some ashes that I have tossed into the chicken building for them to scratch in to keep mites and such under control. But I really don't want to get chicken doodoo and ashes on my computer screen LOL I don't have much soot since I throw rock salt into my stove sometimes and that keeps the chimney cleaned out fairly well.

I am out of flea market peanut butter since my third Wednesday is thin too. All I have is my quarter on a string that I took to church yesterday. It did make a nice kerplunk in the metal plate. I suggested that the ushers start using styrofoam but they did not think that was too good an idea. LOL But we only have 9 more days until we can go to the Dollar Store. I hope that 350 pound fat lady is working that day so I can stock up on looking at women all in one trip. LOL
