Windstream, AND cell phone outages last night.

Nag, nag, nag. Another week and no "official statement" from the powers that be.  (Apr 11, 2013 | post #45)

napa

I noticed the parts store on Young Harris st. now has a NAPA sign out in front. I had to stop driving my gas guzzling, parts sucking old things, and drive my late model fuel sipping pregnant roller skate.  (Apr 1, 2013 | post #70)

Windstream, AND cell phone outages last night.

Well, it's been weeks now since this happened and I'm still looking for that promised report by the commissioner. Yes, it was trivial, but at the same time it could of caused problems. It shows what to expect if a strong solar storm hits us. A storm like hit earth in 1859 will knock out more than that, most post 1979 cars and trucks will be dead too. Also electric power could be out. These things will be "out" for months if that happens.  (Apr 1, 2013 | post #44)

Bright lights

Aligned or not it's the magnitude that is downright dangerous. It must be against the law, there was an arrest report in the last paper with "failure to dim headlights" as one of the charges, the first time I've seen that charge on the report. The driving with parking lights only thing is a violation also, but that does not bother me. Besides, there is that half hour before sunrise and after sunset thing in the law (twilight).  (Apr 1, 2013 | post #9)

Does anyone know the "squirrel man" at meeks park?

His situation is kinda my "default setting". I myself probably would avoid people most the time though. Imagine, no nagging spouse, frustrating offspring, their ungrateful offspring, creditors, relatives...  (Mar 10, 2013 | post #50)

Does anyone know the "squirrel man" at meeks park?

A year later, he's at the park now 3/10/13, see him there every time I go there. Lives the life of a hermit half the day and looking for human contact the other half. He told me long ago he lives in a camper on property in exchange for keeping an eye on the place. I have seen him all over doing yard work for people, cleaning restaurant parking lots in exchange for meals, giving fly fishing lessons. Told me once he uses the computers at the library, I wonder if he has seen these postings???  (Mar 10, 2013 | post #48)

Bright lights

Why do some people drive with their bright lights on all the time. Just drive a few miles at night and a large number of cars going the other way have their brights on. Also I once had to stop on 129 because the oncoming motorcycle light blinded me so much I thought I'd run off the road. It looked like an oncoming train less the rotating. Some also use their fog lights and high beams at the same time. What ever happened to dimming your headlights as soon as you see oncoming traffic?  (Mar 8, 2013 | post #1)
