I had a lady friday almost crying over a 60 dollar repair. She hasn't worked in 6 weeks and is running out of money.
I'd like to pay for her repair - can you contact me?
you're a good guy, Andy.

Re: Costco prohibit carry - No signs posted

PLEASE resist the impulse to educate business owners/managers so that they know more efficiently how to keep ALL of us out of their stores!! Just STOP it. If they don’t know that their signs have no value, too dang bad. It's their JOB to know. It's NOT your job to help them figure out how to infrin...

Re: Are Ham radios becoming like guns in CA?

Get the free software CHIRP to program the radio.
I suggest checking the Chirp supported radio list *before* buying a radio:

Re: What Joe Biden Thinks About Guns

I'm not aware of a single issue that Joe Biden and I agree on.
well, maybe not 'issues', but I Joe & I might agree that:

(a) we don't want Bernie as president
(b) Joe shouldn't own an AR-15

Re: Corona Virus (2019-nCoV) from China: Its going to be bad.

I was at Target, out of large hand sanitizer.
Walmart doesn’t even have travel size hand sanitizer.
Went to Amazon- out of stock

better off with home made hand sanitizer anyway:

Re: Early Voting

I looked at both ballots on line just to see what's up and the propositions are night and day different and then the weirdest thing- Pres candidates- Roque "Rocky" de la Feunta is on both the R and D ballots. How does that work?

I read somewhere that one is the father and the other is the son.
