  1. The pandemic was just the push I needed to do what I should have done long ago. I used to enjoy going to the gym, but more and more, I find it an exercise in frustration. Mostly, the frustration stems from inconsiderate slobs who can't be bothered to put weight back where they belong, can't seem to bring themselves to wipe down benches and machines when they're done, and park themselves on machines between sets with ear buds plugged into their heads so they can conveniently ignore anyone who might ask to work in. Anyway, my wife and I had the discussion about investing in a home gym,

  10. I like Bend nice enough. Really nice park system. Lots of outdoor stuff. You don't have to check the weather because it's going to be pretty nice. I just don't have the friend network here that I have back in Portland. I miss our long time friends. Plus I can go into the office a few times a week & kibbutz with them. Bend was always WoScraprs place. She loved it. It's just not the same without her

  11. That's good news... generally that is not the case. I had to use Google... I learned something today. I can stop now... The expression 'Scot-free' originates from the Scandanavian word, 'Skat,' which means “tax” or “payment.” The word mutated into 'scot' as the name of redistributive taxation meant to provide relief to the poor during the 10th century. Someone who did not have to pay the tax for some reason was referred to as 'scot-free.'

  13. When I was a kid, one next door neighbor rented out their house and several families were living in it. They had numerous cars & felt the street in front of their house was their parking so would yell at my oldest brother not to park there. My brother repeatedly told them to F’ off. Well one night somebody broke into his car, put in in neutral, released the brake and pushed it down the street. My brother was pissed but never said a word about revenge. However a few nights later someone punctured all 4 tires on every one of their cars. Someone also shimmied up the power li

  18. I have yet to see a grizzly in the wild..., but did face down a polar bear coming towards me. I didnt bother with the spray, but fired a couple rounds into the ground in front of him. He paused and looked at me and I was thinking "okay, that was two..., I have 43 left. 42 for him and one for me." When he turned and went back the way he came I was a happy camper. He was 32 feet away (i went back and measured the distance in the tracks in the snow)

  19. So you bought a mental exercise machine. Wouldn't a 1200 piece puzzle have been less expensive. As always, expect at least one piece to be missing.

  29. I do not want my butter choices limited or made for me. Quality hosts serve real butter and in a way that says, help yourself to all the real butter you'd like. Not in a plastic container where people dip their spoons and God only knows what else when you're not watching them. Real butter is showcased on the table and served with a knife.

  38. Here is where everyone gives you a hard time for being an antivaxer bastard who hates puppies and people from other races without remembering stuff. I said I was forever done with the flu shot, but I am reconsidering because I would hate to get the flu and covid at the same time, I am sure it would be my demise. I would just hope that it is more than 50% effective (which historically it is not). I am still on the fence.

  39. It's a good rule. But not always one you can live by I know folks with drug/alcohol addicted siblings, who go in and out of rehab or periods of sobriety, and bring with them many problems. Those problems can follow them to a family birthday, wedding, or 4th of July party. Likewise, it's the classic "blame the victim" in this case, since unless the report shows she was in any way an active participant in wrongdoing and that the wrongdoing was something a reasonable person would expect to be killed for. How many times have your heard/seen situations of "Well, why were you at the bar wher

  40. No knock warrants are a horrible abuse of police power. In this case it was used for an investigation - not an arrest. If someone wakes me up in the middle of the night by breaking down my door, I'm shooting.
