New Users feature ALSO now for paid members only
Posted: 7/6/2016 9:57:38 PM
I agree... this is absolute bullshit. Greed is a horrible thing. This site has become the new "matchdoctor"... great in the beginning, but this latest fiasco of not allowing someone to see the newest sign-ups without paying is the last straw. I've had my profile on here for nearly 14 years without so much as a nibble... time to move on.

On the news today, Match bought POF for 575 million
Posted: 7/30/2015 10:31:27 PM
Well.... DAMN!
I didn't know anything about this, but I can guarantee all of you that this site's days of being FREE WILL be coming to an end. Yahoo Personals USED to be free, but when Match.com took THAT over, that was the end of it being free.
A pity, but I must admit that after having my profile on here for over 12 years and not a single "bite", I won't be out much... the site never worked for me. :(
I'll certainly miss this site.
Amazing what greed will make people do.

How to tell if it's a fake profile?
Posted: 8/10/2013 10:27:46 PM
I remember a few years back on POF, I ran across this woman's profile... she was from a city about 50 miles from where I live. Now, I don't know if the profile was a FAKE or NOT, but when I looked at the photo she had posted, I busted out laughing... it was a picture of Jan Smithers. For those of you who don't remember her, she was the actress who played "Bailey Quarters" on WKRP.
So, I e-mailed this woman and wrote, "WOW! You look EXACTLY like Jan Smithers!", within an hour.....FFTTTT! She deleted her profile(HAH!)! :D

sciatica
Posted: 1/7/2013 8:45:21 PM
Alright...time for me to put my two cents worth in....
I've had Sciatica off and on ever since I was in my teens, but it always cleared up in a day(Or less), and was never anything more than a nuisance. For the past five weeks, however, my Sciatic nerve has been giving me hell. Now here is the weird part.... 3 weeks ago today, I awoke COMPLETELY PAIN-FREE, and it lasted all day! The next day....BAM; the pain was back. Has anyone heard of THAT happening before?

forgotten instruments...
Posted: 10/30/2012 9:55:33 PM
I don't know if it's been mentioned or not, but the serpent is pretty much all but forgotten! Composer Bernard Herrmann (1911-1975) used the serpent in his scores for Journey to the Centre of the Earth, among others, and composer Jerry Goldsmith(1929-2004) used the serpent in his score for Alien. Very creepy instrument! It got it's name because - well - it sort of looks like a serpent! :D

Favorite Amusement Park Ride
Posted: 4/8/2012 9:26:03 PM
My favorites were never at an amusement park, but rather at those traveling carnivals....
My absolute favorites were
The Toboggan(FANTASTIC!!!)
The Trabant
The Rock and Roll

There are a few others, but I can't remember the names of them.
Most of the ones I mentioned above have been "decommissioned", I'm sorry to say. :(

My LEAST favorite..... THE DOUBLE FERRIS WHEEL!!! I HATE HEIGHTS, and yet, the last time I went to the local fair, what the hell did I do? I GOT ON THE DAMNED DOUBLE FERRIS WHEEL!!! :D:D:D

"Observation: 90% of the posts are from MEN saying they are going to leave.

Result: Only those guys looking for sex will stay as the serious shoppers will move on.

PoF might be trying to drain the pool a little to square up the men vs women ratio with this move.

Problem is, when you dump out the pool. All that is left is shallow water."

I actually take offense at this statement. True... I'm sure that there are a LOT of men on this site looking to just get laid, but I am NOT one of them, and even though I am VEHEMENTLY opposed to this blatant attempt to milk us, I plan to stay and hopefully find a woman to share my life with. I'm not going to make a hollow threat about leaving, and if I ever state that I'll be deleting my profile, it won't be a threat.

Actually.... my sibs probably care MORE about my flowers than they do about ME(Long story).
Also.... I was actually mixing half Peter's plant food with half Bloom Booster... it didn't seem to hurt the plants.
Additionally, I have some Verbena that I transplanted, and I'm looking for similar results for THEM as well!

Need some more suggestions!!!
I have sibs coming in a week and a half. I planted some Impatiens about three weeks ago, and they are doing great. Yesterday, I planted some more, and while they aren't all that small, I need them to grow FAST... in other words, before my sibs arrive! I've been alternating Peter's plant food with Miracle Gro Bloom Booster, and have been IGNORING the label directions(Use product every 2 weeks). While I haven't seen any damage to the plants from my watering regimen, I've stopped watering with the solutions as frequently as I was.
Have any of you a suggestion(s) as to how I can get fast growth out of my Impatiens? Have any of you done what I've been doing(alternating the solution), and if so, what were YOUR results?
Thanks in advance for the suggestions!

There's this girl who works at a local grocery store who looks just like an Oompa Loompa, except SHE has tattooes. I asked her why she would voluntarily mutilate her body with tattooes and she yelled, "BECAUSE I LIKE 'EM!". Then she went off to stir the chocolate river.

Posted: 9/16/2011 8:40:31 PM
I just cut down a weed bush, leaving a respectabe-sized(?) stump behind.
What is the FASTEST way to make the stump rot?
I have a friend who says that if you drill a hole down in the center of the stump, then pour either motor oil or some gas in the hole, it will "do the trick".
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

I just walked over to my sofa to pick up the remote so I could turn the TV off..... my remote lights up when you push any of the buttons. It's been over an hour since I even touched the remote, and when I went to pick it up, I noticed that it's still lit up!
Outside of taking the batteries out, does anyone have an idea as to how to get the light to turn off(It's an RCA universal remote, BTW)?

Cleaning a fridge tips?

As I said, I cleaned the fridge and freezer out this past weekend, and it looks and smells fantastic now, but I just opened it a few minutes ago and.... well.... ummm.... have any of you ever seen the film The Day of the Triffids?

BTW... if you mix baking soda and VINEGAR.... you will have a VERY big mess! That's what we used to combine in elementary school to make a papier mache volcano "erupt"!

Cleaning a fridge tips?
Posted: 8/6/2011 8:33:04 AM
Well... I cleaned all the contents out last night, and the smell isn't NEARLY as bad as I thought it would be! In fact, it's pretty much odor-free!
I just have to clean it out now, and make sure it's disinfected! I'm dreading it!
Oh, "Sweetness"... I didn't clean it out right away because I THOUGHT the power was going to be turned back on shortly after it went off!:( This last time was the THIRD time this year that my landlady didn't pay the bill, but the other two times, she paid the bills, and power was restored the same day. It ain't gonna happen again!
And "FyrKrakn"... thanks for the kind words... I couldn't post immediately below you because of the inane posting "policies" on here!

Cleaning a fridge tips?
Posted: 8/5/2011 12:54:25 PM
Well... "incarceration" would be an apt term! I stayed in my place for as long as I could, which was about 4 weeks, but with this being one of the hottest summers since I was a kid in 1977, I would NEVER have survived it for long, and am surprised that I made it as long as I did(Obviously, without electricity, I couldn't run an A/C or fan, and had to resort to laying those rectangular ice packs on my chest to help keep me cool while trying to sleep). In essence, my place DID become a "prison", but now it's back to being my "home"... and I couldn't be happier.

Cleaning a fridge tips?
Posted: 8/5/2011 12:45:26 PM
It is a VERY LONG STORY, but the gist of it is that my landlady got scammed by one of those damned Nigerian LETTERS(NOT an e-mail!)... they took every cent of her's. She was SUPPPOSED to be using my rent to pay the utilities, and she didn't. She NEVER ONCE came to me in advance to let me know what was going on and what was getting ready to happen concerning the utilities. Then, on May 25th...POOF! The lights went off, and for the past ten weeks, my life has been a nightmare of not knowing if she was going to get the lights turned back on; her house was also auctioned off(Which didn't affect me, thankfully).... as I said, it's a very long story, but I finally was able to get MY electricity back on this past Tuesday, and am in the process of moving back in.
On a side note: None of my family or friends offered to help me during this time. Then, about 4 weeks into this mess, A friend of mine needed me to help him with his yard; his mother wasn't expected to live through that weekend, and he needed me to do his yard for him, since he was at the hospital all the time. I went over there, and I started telling him about what had happened, and before I could finish my story, he said, "You can stay at my mother's house as long as you need to". I picked up the key the day his mother died(Which was about 6 weeks ago), and tonight will be my last night staying at his mother's house. I wouldn't have made it without my friend... and he will never know just how grateful I am... and will always be.
....does that answer your question?

Cleaning a fridge tips?
Posted: 8/4/2011 4:18:26 PM
I have just recently returned to my apartment after having to involuntarily leave it for 10 weeks. I have to clean the fridge out. Yes, it is nasty(But not TOO nasty!); I left everything in there(except milk and meat), which basically consisted of condiments and things of that sort. The fridge is just a little over 2 years old, so it's in perfect condition.
What would be the best way to clean/disinfect the inside of the fridge? I was planning on using a solution of clorox diluted in water... DEFINITELY not too strong, though.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I have tried "googling" this problem, and I can NOT find anything on it.
For the past several months, whenever I'm talking to a friend on my landline phone, I can hear my neighbour talking to someone on HER phone. That is, I can hear HER conversation on MY phone! I know that even though we have different residences, our lines connect to the same Network Interface Box. Is there SOMETHING I CAN DO at the box to correct this problem?
