Click Reduction #9

Continued...

Quote: Geezer
Yaknow, if we could figure out here how to put solar panel technology into something that actually looks like roof shingles, we'd make a lotta money!

Ever notice that the only ones who do not have to look at the panels, are the ones who own them?

Re: Click Reduction #9

Thanks for the new click reduction!
I looked into the panels a while ago, but the payback period was a little longer than I expect to be around . It is too bad that they are currently so aesthetically unpleasing, but I'm sure someone 'out there' is working to change that.

Re: Click Reduction #9

I think I might have the solution to your panel problem.

I just want to say one word to you.
Are you listening?

"Plastics".

Brilliant Homes, we'll, I mean you'll, be rich!

Re: Click Reduction #9

You want my help on the project AND Mrs R?

Well, as someone once said....

"Nuts!"

OK now... so where did we leave off?

Oh, I remember... Unattractive roof rakes and shoveling snow. Frankly, I'm opposed to having them. It's very hard to catch leaves when it's windy and the roof is slippery.

Re: Click Reduction #9

Wishing all the "Melrose (and anywhere) Seniors" and why not, everyone on Melrose Messages, a very Merry Christmas and only good things in the coming year!

Re: Click Reduction #9

Happy Christmas everyone.

Enjoy! And may you all have a wicked pis-sa day with pets (or pet), friends and relatives!.

Old Guy.

p.s.
I should add that it has been great fun confabulating throughout last year and I look forward to more in 2015.

Re: Click Reduction #9

Merry Christmas gang.

I have been kind of busy and haven't logged-in in a while. Speaking of busy; I just finished putting my granddaughter's Barbie's Dream house together. Next year if Santa brings anything like that again for her, I will never speak to that individual again.

Re: Click Reduction #9

..................and to all, a good night!!!!!

Re: Click Reduction #9

Note to self... Take "setting up telescope" off the "fun to put together" list.

Nah... who am I kidding... It's still fun and he knows I like working with him.

Cornerstone Question

Why is it taking so long to reveal the contents of the little Paul Revere box?

Re: Cornerstone Question

It probably reveals that it's 'Paula Revere', and they don't want to admit it/change history!

Re: Cornerstone Question

Is Geraldo involved in any way?

Re: Cornerstone Question

Other than he may have been married to Paula Revere, I don't think so, and he couldn't get a special based on it.

Re: Cornerstone Question

This was actually for Jan 2, but couldn't post.

Happy New Year................ here's your tax bill !

Re: Cornerstone Question

testing.... testing....

Re: Cornerstone Question

I wish they would put the Boston Bomber trial on TV.

Re: Cornerstone Question

I agree. Do they have to use the word "alleged" in the courtroom?

Re: Cornerstone Question

You rarely hear it in court. This case is into the "You did it." "No I didn't." phase now.

I feel for the jurors - a 4 month trial? I've never been on a jury - every time I've been called I've either been completely ignored or disqualified for some reason or other.

I wish it was televised too.

Re: Cornerstone Question

I got onto one jury. Sat through the whole thing and then got selected to be an "alternate". Yup, spent the next three days sitting in the hall on a hard plastic chair, while the others had all the fun deliberated away.

Well, here’s the list of treasures found in the cornerstone box. Funny, I didn’t know a building could get an erection?

BOSTON GLOBE
Using a porcupine’s quill, several small pieces of paper, a strip of polyester film, and a small metal pick that resembled a dental tool, Museum of Fine Arts conservator Pam Hatchfield carefully plucked history from a box Tuesday night.

There was a collection of 23 coins dating as far back as 1652, a medal depicting George Washington, a replica of Colonial records, and a silver plate commemorating the erection of the new State House.

Re: Cornerstone Question

Nuttin' even close to something the Criminal Minds team could get excited about!

Loved the OJ trial. Never saw a court room with so many huge egos in it at the same time. A lot of boring parts but I really learned a lot watching it.... I think.

Was the OJ trial more than 4 months?

Re: Cornerstone Question

Geezer…it's me…and it's been me all along. I have seen your posts thanking me for my "humor"….your wife must have been a wonderful soul to enjoy laughing at the absurd along with me. Hope you are well.

Re: Cornerstone Question

Please except my apology Bea and Geezer.

Re: Cornerstone Question

Oh Don't worry Old Guy, I wasn't offended…just Beatrice. But she gets a bee in her bonnet over the smallest thing.

FYI Geezer, Fossil and anyone else.

This Tuesday evening (9:00 PM on CNN) an in depth review of the OJ trial. Funny how they planned this right when we were talking about it.

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

That IS amazing, I'll definitely watch, thanks! I was hooked on that trial and because I was working at the time would watch the "replays" at night, as would my wife who had already seen it :). It was fascinating.

PS No apology needed to me OG, that's part of the fun of 'those strings', seeing where they go and going with the flow (or creating it!)

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

I've always wondered, when a sign says "...................., Police Take Notice", is that telling you the police will notice if you're doing what's prohibited, or is it an instruction to the police to watch for it?

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

Yes.

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

Is this happening on a weekend, or a weekday?

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

Neither, at night.

And thank you Fossil, I'll never wonder again........believe me!

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

Yippeeee!

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

Yippeee?

Is that how you cheer for Tom as he slices thru the Red Zone like a highly skilled surgeon? With a yippeee?

As Geezer once said.... Sheesh!

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

When the ham IS the Patriot` game this weekend? Is it on Sunday Night Football?

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

4 O'clock this afternoon. Should be a good game.

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

It's 9:45 PM, and the game still hasn't been on. What are you smokin` over there?

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

Well, if you're still living in the Highlands you should just keep watching. The signals are probably taking longer to reach you because of the hills, and all.


Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

Sad day today. Had to say goodbye to my chocolate lab. He had a good run - he was just two weeks shy of 15, but sad just the same. Later, buddy.

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

VERY sorry :(

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

Never easy. So sorry.

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

You're right Fossil. 15 is a great run, for a great dog.

Hang in there.
Old Guy.

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

Thanks, guys. It was a tough day. Been through it before, but it doesn't get any easier. Already thinking about what to do now - maybe a charcoal. I really like that color.

Re: FYI Fossil and Geezer

So sorry Fossil. I know how you feel.

Re: Go Pat's!

FYI Geezer.

To make sure you don't miss the Pat's game today, I'll post on this board as soon as it's happened.

Glad to help,
Old Guy


Re: Go Pat's!

"US teens on alleged crime spree captured in Florida"
So, what, it's the crime spree that's 'alleged', and not their participation in it? 😳

PS Thanks Old Guy, then I'm safe taking my nap.

Re: Go Pat's!

I just turned on the tv and the game is already on, but I have no idea what the hoopla is all about, the Patriots aren't even playing! It's the Green Bay Pickers and the Seattle Supersonics.

Re: Go Pat's!

So has the time FINALLY come when we don't have to hear "chicken parm you taste so good" (to the tune of the Nationwide Ins. jingle) from Peyton Manning?
