Well, like Anne, I was certainly no big shot but I was V.P. and manager of a small sheet metal company in Olive Branch, MS that is now in Memphis. We (they) made commercial/industrial vent piping systems that hook up to huge furnaces and generators. It was union simply because most of the orders were shipped to the north east and had to have the union label or it would never be installed without it up there! I was not union and could not touch a machine......which was OK because sheet metal was a bore, wood is my thing. Anyway, I kept ALL records, billing, accounts payable/receivable, etc. I was not and am not a computer nut and when I ran into trouble I'd call that 800 service number and wind up talking to some girl in India,....for real. I hated that because I could not understand that........lingo! But I don't mind this lap-top, if I mess it up,....so what?

I'll have to agree with the rest of you concerning the ad's on these forums/Topix. There's advertising on the left and right side of the screen that are distracting because of the motions and the noise so I keep the volume turned completely off, that helps. About a month or so ago, similar to Wolf, I was reading along and the screen split horizontally, made me think of the Red Sea, and here was another commercial. But I can click down faster than it can open up so I bypass that mess. Now,.... it makes no difference which forum I go to, across half the top of the screen is another blast in the ___! and I've really had problems X'ing out of them. But as long as the good out-weighs the bad, I'll hang around.

I've got a 2" diameter rain gage out in the yard and Sat. night it commenced raining and didn't quit till mid-morning Sun. We got a little better than 5 " in less than 24 hours. Memphis said it got 7 ", maybe so. Has it hit ya all yet? May have to build an ark..!!!!

This silly thing not only puts ads on the top and on both sides, but it overlays people's posts at the bottom and then tries to restore the page and comes up blank. Only the first 2 or 3 posts of any given page can be seen. The number one rule in sales, is to make your pitch then shut up. Topix needs to learn that rule.

Good Morning Bird Lovas. Beautiful day. Nothing better than protein for breakfast. A very nice way to start the day. Even better, chocolate covered protein. Yummmy. And it is the most important meal of the day. Have a great day everyone.

What a day! Accomplishments galore ! Fresh white gravel on the parking area by the house....looks much better! Heeheehe...the small cast iron tub that my daughter drug home now sports a fresh coat of paint and has been put to a practical use of holding hula hoops and an assortment of balls. Okay, okay not many people have an old slipper style cast iron tub sitting by the side door, but we do!

We've had a similar discussion on this before but I gotta tell ya what happened about two hours ago, about 9:15. I was laying here on the bed almost ozoned out reading the daily bad news when The Belle came rushing to the door exclaiming, "You gotta see, you gotta see!" See what, says I! So I got up in my PJ bottoms and she led me out the front door, "like what's happen'n (as in Ally Oop Poop.)" She was about to pee her britches, pointing up at an angle. Well, I looked up but didn't see anything..........at first. Then, like in slow motion, I saw this thing swaying so smoothly in the breeze off the edge of the roof. I immediately thought it was a small snake but carefully walking closer, nope.......it was what was left of one....!!!...his skin! Only about a foot of it was hanging down so I pulled it all down. Oh,.....maybe 4 ft. long. The skin was very fresh and inside out, of course, so I'm not sure what kind it was. I've been wondering ever since.......how'd he get up there and.......is there even the slightest crack in this house? Maybe I'll see him tomorrow..........when I'm cut'n grass on a riding mower!! Wish me pleasant dreams, ya all.

I'd go crazy wondering where that snake had gone to! My mother in law found a snake in a dresser drawer and let me tell you that's one experience I'd rather not have !

Time to get up and at it today! The "gotta do" list is long and then I'm off for the holiday weekend. One year we were in Canada on July 1--Canada day --and we walked to a local park and enjoyed their fireworks and music. Then on July 4 I quietly put out my little American flag on the camper. Wonderful week!

@ Anne.......totally agree! No snakes! But I got up the next day after posting the story up above and starting walking all around this house looking for how he got up on the roof, it was beyond me. I came to the south side of the house and,.........Awwhh, there it is! At either corner is a evergreen holly tree and they had grown up past the roof's edge. Needless to say, they've been severely trimmed back. I just imagine he came down during the night because, during the day, the tin roof gets awful HOT. But I don't know where he went!

Hope everyone had a great 4th. The Belle and I trimmed the 8 ft. tall hedge row along the driveway, what a job. That evening we went to a rodeo a ways across the road from us. It wasn't a PBR but it was well presented and,...well,.......comical to say the least.

I've been to just a few rodeos and enjoy them. We don't have any horses though and no intention of getting any so our interest in rodeos is not a lot. Hope your snake situation was solved with the tree trimming! "Shudder"
We didnt even attend fireworks this year because this town held them at 10:30 pm, just a tad bit late when better half had to leave for work around 5:30am Saturday morning :-(
Sunday we toured an old state reformatory and I'm doubly thankful that a tour is the only way I've seen the inside of a prison cell! I will say the outside of the prison looks like a beautiful castle. All hand cut stone! The wardens family living quarters had been absolutely beautiful in its day! The wardens children are now in their 60's and tell of the wonderful times they had while living there. They told stories about not being able to shoot BB guns in the prison grounds so they held target practice in the humongous basement. The mom used the basement to make beer-- mid 1940's--and to can the family's food .

@ Anne..........You would probably enjoy a visit to Carlinville, Ill, and the courthouse of Macoupin Cty., my home area. I haven't heard your word "humongous" in years (smile'n) but the courthouse fits that description perfectly. It reminds me of the grand buildings of Rome. It's all made from "BIG" yellow-ish blocks of hand carved sandstone. To walk inside is pure haunting, almost echoes your footsteps, like the blind pig and the acorn story. No matter what time of year, it is always nice and cool in there. Of course, I guess it's heated in the winter time! But.........now, come to think of it,.......I don't know where the jail cells are. I'll do a search........ Have ya ever seen the Parthanon in Nashville? It's kinda large but only a replica of the original in Italy.

When my wife, and I, first got married, MM, we moved to Nashville, where I attended school, and we lived right next door to Centennial Park. Every morning, when I would leave to walk to school, I'd see the Parthenon, sitting there in all its beauty. The last time I was inside it was in 1965, I believe, and it was something to see! I keep telling my wife that we must spend a day, or two, in Nashville, sometime, and go back and see it again. Please forgive me, but I must correct you on one little thing; the original Parthenon sits atop the Acropolis, in Athens, Greece. We were there sightseeing around 5 years ago, and took my oldest son, and my oldest grandson, with us. It was breathtaking, standing atop the Acropolis, in front of the ruins of the Parthenon, and you could see for miles and miles, in every direction. We were on one of our cruises, and that was one of the stops. I highly recommend it, should you ever get a chance to go. It is well worth it! Have a wonderful day, my friend!

I stand corrected and I do appreciate it. I've always thought that it resembled the Roman architecture so much and just figured.......oh well. The older I get the less I like to travel, whether it be driving or flying. The Belle and I did vacation in Jamaica twice some 18 years ago. But your decription of that area does sound inviting. BTW, has Greece gotten out of its financial and political upheaval yet? They rather upset the international bankers!

You know, MM, oddly enough there hasn't been much reported about Greece, lately. I'm sure they're still having problems and, as a matter of fact, when we were there, and as our tour bus wound through the streets of Athens, you could see black smudges, here and there, from where angry mobs threw Molotov cocktails, during the demonstrations. The day before we docked, the Captain of our ship came on the intercom and said that, due to a pilot's strike, we may not be able to dock there, and might have to substitute the island of Cyprus instead. One of the main reasons I chose this cruse was so that I could see the Parthenon, and some of the other ruins there, and you can imagine how distraught I was! Luckily, at the last minute, and I'm certain it was all about money, for cruise ships bring incredible revenue everywhere they stop, they "temporarily" suspended the strike, and a pilot was brought onboard to bring us to the dock at Piraeus, which is Athens' port of entry. You can imagine how happy I was! When I was very young, I read a lot of Greek literature, because of all the adventure, and always dreamed of someday being able to visit there, and see the sites. I would have done cartwheels, if I hadn't feared hurting myself! Up to that point, it had been a wonderful cruise, and we stopped on Sicily and hired a car to take us to Taormina where, standing on one of the piazzas overlooking the Mediterranean, we had a great view of Mt. Etna, still the largest active volcano in the world, I think. Then, it was on to Crete, and the ruins of the Palace of Knossos, home of the Minos line of kings (there really wasn't a Labyrinth, or a Minotaur), then to Ephesus, Turkey, where the ruins were still in pretty good shape, here and there, and you could still sit in the very back, of the Amphitheater, and hear a normal conversation between two people standing where the stage area used to be. Also, we visited the last home of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and that was beyond words. Athens was our last stop and, thanks to our being able to dock, was the cherry on top of the sundae! I really wish you all could go on that cruise, and I know you would love it. The cost of the cruise itself is not bad; it's the air fare to and from Rome, where the cruise began and terminated, that is the big cost of the whole thing. We also spent the three days prior to sailing in Rome, and my wife booked our hotel rooms in the Old City, where we were within walking distance of most of the sites. We learned a hard lesson, the year before when we took our daughter and her husband on a Western Caribbean cruise, that it's best to do your sightseeing before you go on the cruise, because you're tired at the end. Anyway, you have a wonderful day, my friend!!!

It's odd, but I haven't heard anything on the news, lately, about Greece's financial woes. I do know that, when we were there, you could see black smudges, here and there, from Molotov cocktails that were thrown during the demonstrations. I know there still must be problems, but maybe Europe sent them some money, or something. That's what happens when you try to turn a whole country into a "worker's paradise." Still, it you and The Belle should ever get a chance to go there, please go! You will never regret it. Our cruise started in Rome, and then made stops in Sicily, Crete, Turkey, and Greece, and it was a dream come true, for anyone who ever read Greek literature, and mythology. Have a wonderful day, my friend!
