Off-Topic / Re: VOTE
« on: Yesterday at 06:22:10 pm »Message ID: 1343227
I've heard so many say they aren't going to vote for "so and so" because they don't like him or they don't like the way he talks, etc etc.   Others aren't going to vote for the other guy for other reasons.

I suggest we  consider that we are voting for a Political Platform,  more than just the candidate who is representing the Platform.  Whether we like the individual man himself (his hair , his  tweets, his "dementia"/forgetfulness, 47 year record in office, or whatever other issue we have with the actual person) our vote is going to decide what kind of a country we will be living in.

So......look past the man running and look at the Platform, the issues that the candidate endorses.   Vote for the Platform (not the man) that most closely lines up with the values and way of life you want to live under.

Off-Topic / Re: Do you use cash much anymore?
« on: October 24, 2020, 03:24:19 pm »Message ID: 1343012

Rarely.  However, I do like to have a couple dollars on me - just in case  :D

I like to have some cash stashed in my wallet -- just in case -- too.  I do not want to become totally cashless.
 I like being able to use cash for small purchases and for kids, grandkids, garage sales...
I still use checks for several monthly bills.  I mostly use my cash back credit cards and pay them off each month.

This is exciting news!  I hope the science community/vaccine creators -- or whatever these organizations are -- are able to utilize her work and truly get a something made that will stop this virus. 

Amazing work Anika Chebrolu!

Including your daughter's friend, Tammy Wilson, in my prayers.  Cancer knows no boundaries.....it is ugly.  It has claimed several of my family members.

I think it would be neat to see a splash of color on this website, get rid of the green and black and add some color! Blue and black or red and black maybe? Any other ideas? :rose: :heart:

I don't have any strong feelings for or against the current color scheme.  Green works for me.

In 5 years I plan to be retired.  We haven't decided where we want to settle.  I want to be close to grandkids.

I have had 3 people in my family test positive with the coronavirus. 
My brother-in-law had a high fever and was hospitalized.  He recovered nicely.
My daughter's significant other tested positive.  He had mild "cold" symptoms.
My son-in-law also tested positive.  He had mild cold symptoms.

I know an older woman who has cancer and double pneumonia....she is extremely sick and on a ventilator fighting for her life.

FusionCash / Re: Oh No, not another Covid 19 Survey

I don't mind the Covid 19 surveys.  Most of the time they are easy to do and don't take a long time to complete.  Most of the time you will get paid instead of being disqualified.

I don't mind it if I get another Covid19 survey.  A penny is a penny.

The clerks at our grocery store ask me, "Did you find everything ok?" instead of "is that it?"  Seems like a very polite question to me.  Every once in a while I may even respond that I wasn't able to find "blank" and someone usually will go get that item for me if I so choose that I still do want it.

I can't relate to this as I didn't go to parties when young....no sneaking out of the house.  I don't attend parties now a days either,(even if parties were allowed during COVID) so there is no sneaking out to go home.

I don't have any pets now that the kids are grown.  Each of my girls has a cat or two.  Cats have been the pet of choice for our family for years.

Off-Topic / Re: Space collision - dead Soviet satellite and a discarded Chinese rocket body

Hurray!  These two space debris crafts missed each other last night, Thursday, October 15

Some blurbs from the report I read say:

"Bullet dodged," McDowell said on Twitter. "But space debris is still a big problem." 
Space collisions make clouds of dangerous high-speed debris
Nearly 130 million bits of space junk currently surround Earth, from abandoned satellites, spacecraft that broke apart, and other missions. That debris travels at roughly 10 times the speed of a bullet, which is fast enough to inflict disastrous damage to vital equipment, no matter how small the pieces.

A debris disaster could cut off our access to space
If the space-junk problem were to get extreme, a chain of collisions could spiral out of control and surround Earth in an impassable field of debris. This possibility is known as a Kessler event, after Donald J. Kessler, who worked for NASA's Johnson Space Center and calculated in a 1978 paper that it could take hundreds of years for such debris to clear up enough to make spaceflight safe again.
