Re: Random Thoughts Again

I remember an 800+ mile day from DeLand, FL to Harrisonburg, VA, stopped to watch the Olympic hockey match, USA vs USSR, Lake Placid, 1980 after 12 hrs on the road with an hour parked as Mrs. Spackler was ill. Nice little hockey match! Glad we stopped. The Mrs. slept while I jumped up and down on th...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

One thing you may want to try is taking the Mass pike to 84 to 684. You still have to cross the Tapenzee but you at least avoid that rough part of 95 coming down the coast. I may try that just for grins some day. Right now, I let my new GPS unit pick the route. It has a MUCH better traffic monitori...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Have to say that the only potential problems on our route would be the Pittsburgh Turnpike vicinity, Akron coming home and the Somerset region to Bedford in the winter or fog season. We stack up miles of miles, over 400 miles one way to our daughter's home. Lancaster on US-30 is a pain as we seem to...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Our daughter and the grandkids came out to visit over my birthday again. Fun and games. Glad to see them come and happy to see them go. Great to have them around but it ruins your routine. Now I'll have to take a week to get back to normal, reposition all the stuff put out of reach for the visit. Re...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Be careful what you wish for. It's not like the Russians were sending in surrogates to vote for Donald Trump. To the extent they were "interfering", it appears to be releasing information injurious to Hillary. Like the emails between her people and the DNC that exposed what a total bag jo...

Re: Other Sports

dad, I did not realize we were in the presence of greatness. Wow, a future skittle ball HOF nominee? I'd like to attend the awards ceremony when you are inducted. Who will present you at the induction ceremony? Anyone we know? Someone we don't know? Anyone at all? Pinball Wizard? Appoo?

Re: Thai kids trapped in cave

Miracle requested and supplied, thank God. 8-) Great news! Sad to hear of the Thai Seal expiring while delivering oxygen bottles along the path. Wonder what actually occurred to cause his death? He had to be an expert diver. Caving is not for the faint of heart. I wonder if anyone rescued will ever ...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I have no doubt Russia has been trying to interfere in our elections forever. So have other nations. It's in their interest to do so. We, ALSO, attempt to interfere in other nation's elections, for sure dude. It's in our interest. So while we are all interested, maybe we should have a worldwide elec...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

We will find out any bombshells roughly a week or two before the mid term elections. ;) So far he has investigated everything but Russia so that should be a fresh area for fun and games. Nothing that was alleged has stuck to the POTUS but they are twisting subordinates in the wind to coerce or manuf...
