Someone really, really ne...

For those who use YouTube, you can go to the White House's page & subscribe. Wife fussed at me yesterday for not listening to the White House update while she was on shift, so I clicked on the little 'bell' so I'd get notified... Here's the link to today's briefing, in progress now: https://youtu.be...

Before we all light our butts on fire and run in circles with panic, let's not forget that the VAST MAJORITY of people who get this virus will be just fine and likely will show little to no symptoms.

Re: Chelsea Manning has attempted suicide twice now.

I am ashamed of the posts that would seem to advocate in favor of Manning committing suicide. Whether you agree with someone on a political or social level, they are still a human life, and they have people that would still have to deal with the aftermath of that suicide. We should be better than t...

Re: Difference of opinion before the "rack"

I didn't watch the link you provided, however I am in agreement with you. Slap, Rack, Assess is still valid. However, I modified it slightly to Slap, Rack, Reacquire (for reacquire a solid two-handed grip; I've observed so many students that failed to re-establish a solid support hand grip during ma...

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

I'd suggest first get rid of the moles, since they're causing the damage. If you have dogs or outside animals, I'd avoid poisons. We had a small mole problem many years ago, & I had read to use fruity smelling bubble gum. Chew up some Hubba Bubba, & shove it into the holes. Theory was they'd eat it,...
