LOL!!!!!!!!!! Silly ol' Topix! Now I have 90 of the same posts.
WOW! I'm having no trouble whatsoever here. I don't get it. But I have a clue, so OJG please try this:

On the Topix page, right click and then hit "View Page Info".
(But don't do it in this comment box. Do it on a main frame/border of the page or something).
Then: Click on the "Security" tab.
Click "View Cookies"
Click "Remove all cookies" and then also click that 'x' by the top where it says Topix. Then clear all cookies AGAIN from the same box.

See if that helps you and then let me know. I have a couple more tricks I might be able to pull out of my sleeve.

@ AW ; and hide in the weeds by the road and wait for a car to come by,(which back then took a while) and throw an old Hub-cap in the road, and yell out ; HUB-CAP , you lost your hubcap ! of course they would stop and walk around to check all four. then we would run like the devil ! I know, that was mean, but WE did'nt have computers and such, so we had to be creative !...Also remember the willow switches on my butt ! hahaha!

ran a trot line
used an outhouse and a Montgomery Wards catalogue
made a spool willy with a thread spool,a rubber band, and a match
went to a store where they used a hook to get high up dusty cans
Shopped for the perfect feed sack to make skirts for the girls
watched them roll their hair with tin can pieces wrapped in rags
Bought an RC and a moon pie for 10 cents.. 5 cents each
worked most all day hoeing the garden for the 10 cents
cleaned out hog guts, then boiled them for sausage casings
turned the hand crank sausage grinder way into the night
shelled walnuts and went to school with stained hands
went sleigh riding on an old car hood
plowed behind a mule that had been eating green onions.. whew!!
dipped wiggle tails off the rain barrel water so clothes could be washed with a scrub board
squirted milk from Ol' Bossy into a cat's face
had a wet corn cob fight with your cousins (that was the best fun)
tied a tooth to a string and a door knob, waiting for someone to open the door
watched your mama bed down the baby in a drawer or a box
Had to wait until you were 12 years old to visit the hospital
Got your driver's license and bought a car for $115 (a summer's work).
sprinkled lime down the toilet hole
Hoped the chickens hanging out under there did not bite your hiney LOL... and those were the GOOD OLD DAYS?
Yep! Except I never wore a feed sack skirt, I know some who did though. My baby sister, the one I saw today in her little metal car with her pony tails and red ribbons, rested for the first 5 days of her live in a dresser drawer, hehe... And I'd forgotten COMPLETELY about those wiggle tails!! You're right!! I didn't even like washing my hair from the grands rain barrel water if they were in there, LOL!! WOW! A blast from the past. I know my baths were in a steel wash tub with water heated on the pot belly coal stove every summer when I was a little kid down there, haha.

But yes, I still think those were the good old days. And in case we ever have to go back to living that way again, we'll sure know how to do it.

Powdered sulfur, mothballs and cat litter in cracks of floors deter poisonous snakes . The nonpoisonous ones should not be so worrisome. You can also buy traps or make snake traps. Never used them as I have no fear of reptiles since the only fear I have are of terrorists. Hehe. Oh, and the destruction of the world. Hope, it helps.

Mom made us cut our own willow switches. I learned to get the longest one possible, then stand up really close and jump up and down and scream. That longer switch came around and smacked her dress tail and she thought she was flailing the tar out of me, but I never got touched but I made it sound good. hahaha

Had my fair share of cutting switches, but whenever MY Momma had to wait to dish out a whoopin', it usually only got worse...

Wasn't much jumping around you could do if the first thing she grabbed was that old belt with that big brass buckle on it, or that darned old fly swatter. Those fly swatters were ALL made of metal back then.. They hurt like a coat hanger on your bare legs. Bruises? Oh heck yeah..

These days they'd go to jail for doing what we used to get done to us. But we turned out okay.. Can't say so much for todays youth.

Funny that.

Guess all those switchings have caused us to digress or something. They only hurt my pride. Heck, Dad would leave belt welps, switch welps. Heck, that's what is wrong with society today. The government agencies run our lives. True, they are there for domestic abuse. But if fathers, brothers , uncles, sisters, mothers and aunts could solve the problem voila ...issue resolved. Old fashioned whipping never hurt me or my siblings. LOL.

LOL! I forgot to add that danged broom of hers. I got cracked in the head with that thing more times than I can recall. One time she busted my scalp open with it when the metal wires that hold the bristles on the handle hit my head instead of the bristles of that cursed old broom.

That's the last time I ever got hit with that broom, too. I bled all over the place that day. Still carry the scar to this day.

Nope, it's right smack on the top of my noggin. You can feel it through my hair still to this day.

But hey, I lived..

Should I not mention the time she came at me with a butcher knife?
>>true story<<

And yes, we still talk. She's my Mom and I love her anyway, hehe.

Hey bird threaders, white stuff is coming down like crazy. They said later tonight....up to 4 inches. Dang, I was hoping it would hit the Ohio River and just swing it on up to Indiana and Ohio. Yuk. Glad it isn't sticking so far. It was just raining.

I have been busy clearing another closet I haven't even looked in this past year. Momentos mostly. But hey, I found a box full of jeans I hope I can still shimmy into. haha

I love all the trips down memory lane with the things most young people never heard of. AW, that is what we use to do when we had to pick the switch. Long one to do more missing than hitting. Dad would have gone to jail in today's time like many for child abuse. That is what is wrong with these kids these days. You can't whoop their backsides anymore or much of anything else. We sure thought long and hard before we did something we knew was wrong dreading those butt whippings. lol

My chili is smelling so good and just finish the final taste test. I may still throw hot dogs on the grill despite the big white flakes coming down or just throw them in the toaster oven on broil. haha That and lots of shredded cheese and Fritos.

It is so good to have you back OJG. Wish I would have been here while you were on.

"Nope" where on topix to you right click. I tried that and there is nothing that says view page info? I went to the main page like you said, but I don't have that on my right click..just i.e. back, save, preview, copy, print, properties etc...Help!

Hope you all enjoy the white stuff. You better get some too. hahaha

For Ancient Wolf, Nope:

'Chicken sitter' is now a job you can have in Portland, Oregon

No, it's not an unaired "Portlandia" skit. A Portland woman has found a cottage industry in her supergreen Oregon town by baby-sitting — sorry, chicken-sitting — people's fowl when they're on vacation. "Just in my neighborhood there's got to be at least 20 households that have chickens," Linda Walker explains. "Your neighbor can take your cat or dog, but not a whole lot of them know what to do with [chickens]." Walker gained her chicken experience while working at a feedstore last summer, so she's not some Johnny-come-lately to the chicken game. At the very least, she's passionate about her charges: "They're beautiful and really funny and better than TV, they're fun to watch. And they have great eggs!" [Source]

For Hempburn:

Just because weed's legal doesn't mean you can grow it in parks

Although an ounce is legal in Washington, Seattle's public parks are still not the place to lovingly tend to marijuana plants. Police seized 40 plants over the weekend from Llandover Woods Greenspace, which — as the Seattle Police Department helpfully pointed out — is "not that kind of greenspace." The department said it's unusual for folks to grow pot on the sly in public parks, especially during cold and rainy winter. So if these were your plants, the cops just announced to the world you don't know much about growing weed.(Dude.) Don't worry, though, there'll be no investigation, as pot enforcement is a "low, low, low priority" for police.[Source]

Wonder how many people have moved to Washington? haha I doubt any of it could measure up to the Bluegrass finest. lol

My Mom was tough as nails and always finished the swtiching business off with a HUG. Dad was leery of snakes, but MOM would grab them by the tail and slam them up against a fence post.

20 funny photos of 'wrong place, wrong time' situations

Ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time? Had a gate crash into your car or get hit by a baseball flying into the bleachers? Well, all of the people and animals in this gallery got caught in the wrong place, but it's the right time for us because we get to enjoy a little schadenfreude and laugh or cringe at these very unlucky folks. If you're feeling like life isn't very exciting lately, just remember that you could be on vacation — and falling off an elephant.

For lala, I watched a lot of videos on those sinkholes:

Sinkhole victim's family 'going through hell'— as second hole found nearby

SEFFNER, Fla.— A man who jumped into a chasm and tried in vain to save his brother from a catastrophic sinkhole said Monday he was frustrated that authorities haven’t done more to retrieve the body — even as another sinkhole opened up just a couple of miles away.

Targeting two Coronal Holes in both hemispheres of the solar corona during a significant phase of planetary alignments peaking from the 3-7 of march. After further analysis i have isolated two areas (28-33°N latitude) and (27-31°S latitude), these coronal features may produce two earthquakes over 6.0 Magnitude(Southern Hemisphere) and 7.0 Magnitude earthquake(Northern Hemisphere) in one of these listed locations during this watch period:
