Renee, did you once write a piece on your dog walks in the wash or did Irene?
Totally off topic....
Radio is good, other than political talk radio. TV? Not so much. I watched Mad Men once, and didn't see justification for "greatest drama ever" hype. The guy worried about what suit to wear, and his secretary about her status at the office. Really? I remember the British series The Prisoner. Originality these days is more about office politics or special effects. Zombies and vampires. Give me a great radio play, or an audiobook. Audio is always better for you than video because you exercise your imagination. TV is driven by ratings, and Coke ads. They don't care so much about quirky stuff like you mention. They're shooting for the mass audience, a demographic that includes NASCAR fans who munch on pork rinds while drinking Pepsi and call it paradise. --JL editor, Tower Review
Those are not UA housing developments, but for-profit commercial developments. No doubt mommies and daddies of the Maricopa County 4-year transplants are footing the bill.
Aw, comon Renee, cut college students some slack. This is probably the only chance they'll ever HAVE for luxury.
Here's something the cuts are guaranteed to do: those on unemployment extensions will in April, be looking at their generous $240 a week being cut by as much as 22%. Just one thing the willfully uninformed don't know, because they're focused on the politics.
When is the huge, world-destroying meteor? I can't wait. The only difference between Mike Judge's "Idiocracy" and now, is that the black president is actually smart.
How nice that you can afford to be tired and dismiss it and wait for the fallout. Leave the columns then to someone who is also tired but can't give in because there is too much at stake. Someone who knows what the actual cuts will do, someone who knows what the actually cuts won't do.
Whatever happened to Sarah Palin? Michele Bachmann - the candidate for those who feel Sarah Palin is too intellectual.
Look at a map .... Russia's BIG, and haven't you ever heard of Meteor Crater in little old Arizona. The chances of getting hit rise with size after all. Remember Jupiter getting hit last year, or the Shoemaker-Levy comet in 1994 which also hit Jupiter?
Also, we notice more "frothing" from Tea Party haters than Tea Party supporters. You sound like another clueless left-wing fool!
The politicians should be hung in the city square. You jest with serious issues, as did I just now. They play with their politics as they play with cards and bet against the house at our expense and stability. I do not disagree that cuts are needed and overdue. However, let’s make them in areas of unproductive efforts. Green Energy could take a back seat for a long while; funding third world toilets that have been dug into our system like ticks for years and make no effort toward liberty could all use pink slips. Maybe cutting back on a few Presidential vacations and requiring Congressman to work twenty years instead of being vested in one term for retirement might get their attention. Instead, we cut into a military already so war torn that the young men and women, with a suicide rate that is out of this world, who have served honorably can’t even pay the rent. Then the Homeland Stupidity Department, top heavy with bureaucratic lackees that know no shame. The Border is under control, seriously? Well let’s ship all those agents that are getting themselves killed regularly off on an unpaid vacation where they stand to lose 40% of their income overnight. That will make them feel like protecting us I'm sure. Wake up court jester. Rome is burning and you think it is all entertainment for your column.
Politico's confirming Obama's staff's contributing the sequester idea muddies the blame waters. Azrebelmaj and I disagree on stimulus (and "Obama spending"), but we may need a lot more of it if/when sequestration chokes this economy.
Funny that with the 85 Billion in cuts, Obama still has spent more this year than last year, I say give him all the money he can spend, why drag this on, Lets go bankrupt sooner than later, then we can get all the crooks out of office sooner
I still have my mother's Sunbeam toaster. It's older than I am and that's saying something these days. Sadly, it does over-brown one side while barely warming the other, so it is retired. More a memento of better-made machines than utilitarian workhorse. But I remember the toast it made on many mornings. Mmmm.
It is the consumers. Dumbed down to the lowest common crap denominator. Plus, humans love to throw stuff away. So they get what they deserve coming and going.
My Dad called it Crap for Crap's Sake.
Very funny! All well said.
If anyone would like to abolish the electoral college by signing my petition, go to https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/….
BTW its also about the length of your skirt/pants - flats look dumpy in both. Don't hate on me for liking fashion :)
Way too serious of a column. I have a good 20 years of old age to wear boring orthopedic shoes. I like my heels, and if they fit they don't even hurt!
Way to typecast column writers however. Personally, I am only a professional choice away from being one myself and we are nothing alike.
LOVE IT!!! HURRAY FOR YOU.
We are leasing our solar panels from Sungevity and estimate the payback will be 7 years on a 20-year lease.
A few numbers would be useful. "WOW, I get tons of electricity, and it didn't cost all that much" doesn't really convey any information. Water heaters are quite cost-effective, as the panels are about 50% efficient, but PV panels are about 10%, and cost about the same per area.
I'm assuming the AC won't run off solar - you have about 1kW of panel, which generates about 80c of electricity a day. This is woefully inadequate to run AC (and there are better ways of doing it).
BTW, I've dealt with TfS, and I completely agree - they are fantastic!
