Gilbert Grape was good. Are there any other movies where he just plays a normal guy and not some wacky character?

I actually got to be an extra in one of them! I like them more or less in order though. Except for Rocky V belongs at the very bottom. That one's no one's favorite lol

Off-Topic / Re: Anyone else like the original "True Grit" movie?

To be honest, I thought the remake was a lot better, but I did like the original too.

Boy over here in az they've been making it sound like you guys are facing the end of the world over there. Glad to hear it isn't that bad for everyone.

Off-Topic / Re: what movie was so bad you walked out of it

I walked out of one of the Pirates of the Caribbeans. I think the third one, I forget how many there are. But I was in disbelief how many more sequels they made after the one I couldn't finish.

Anyone else have one of these and how are you liking it? I do like that the app alerts you to other reports of stuff going on in your neighborhood.
Alerts you to other stuff going on in neighborhood?  How?  Through other people's ring?  I would not want this.  Too many incidents of people being spied on.

Yeah, others who also have the doorbell/app near you can put out an alert if they had someone steal a package, break in their car, etc. It shows you on a map how close it happened and shares their video so you can see the person.

Some people put them inside and I definitely would never do that for spying reasons. Ours is just at the doorbell.

Yikes, sounds complicated! I think I've only tasted the tiniest molecule of sauerkraut and wasn't a fan.

Off-Topic / Do you keep houseplants?
« on: January 16, 2020, 08:57:14 am »Message ID: 1309194
I can barely walk past a houseplant rack at the hardware store without buying one. If I had some brighter windows in my house I would have a thousand of them.

They've been working fine for me. Be sure you click one of the links in the popup, and then let the page that opens from that stay open for 2 or 3 minutes or whatever it says. The pop up alone isn't what you get credit for

Off-Topic / Re: Anyone else like Disco music?
« on: January 13, 2020, 08:35:24 am »Message ID: 1308877
I like some disco although to be honest I can't name many specific songs because they all sound very similar to me, haha

Off-Topic / Re: No cellphones for kids under 21 years old?

This is totally unrealistic. If you wanted to say only a non-smart phone for kids under X age, just so they can call for emergencies, that's one thing. But smartphones are part of the world now especially for legal adults 18+.

Lol. I haven't written the date right on the first try once yet this year. Usually takes me until at least March!

Off-Topic / Re: Bad Produce

I don't think I would take fruit back. Fruit's a gamble. They didn't knowingly sell me an apple with a brown spot in it so I don't see it as the store's fault. I do notice that AJ's our ritzy grocery store always has pretty reliably really good fruit, but it's expensive. Frys, Safeway, Walmart are all a gamble.

I don't really follow them but still see blurbs on the news now and then. Sounds like they dissed the Queen.
