GeezerIf you don't know if you have "ED", does that mean you do?[Sarcastic] Do what? And... I have to ask. Was the ED question somehow related to the popsicle stick question?

Here's a thought...
Here's a thought. Perhaps some of our older posters on this board should get together and start using this "Melrose Seniors" wasted space as there own. I'm sure none of the former owners could care less... after abandoning it and all.

Time to Get moving!
Hello all! I want to get my bike fixed. Need new tires and a general tune up since I haven't used it in a few years. Does anyone do that in Melrose? I know of a place in Cambridge but getting over there is a pain.

In the category of 'don't laugh until you try it', Kraft Mac & Cheese is a lot better (tho still not as good as Stouffer's) if you throw in some Velveeta when you're combining all the ingredients. Really!

Hey Geezer, Ratt, Have either of you gone through a battle against Shingles? I know I have a fairly mild case (blister wise) and it's almost gone but it seems like this is never going to end.
