   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Back to Martin Balsam, I meant killed in the movie.

   StormCnter  Oh! Well, that makes sense. I'm sorry I misunderstood, Gram.

   Linder  I know this is simplistic but sometimes I think we have too much these days...don't have to work hard to survive...have too much empty idle time to think about being unhappy.

   Safetydude  Gram,
I don't know what 'our world' is but I think the people who run our country are afraid to declare what is right or wrong.

There are no guardrails, there is no discipline, there is no right or wrong. If a kid thinks four plus four equals five and feels good about it that's ok by liberals and progressives. And that's where it starts.

The shooting on Fort Hood was "workplace violence"?
If a guy wants to use the ladies restroom because he 'identifies' as a female that behavior is protected by law.

I think we have so much PC in the government, the military, colleges, high school, grade school and kindergarten, all cheered on by the mainstream media. When we have a killer standing there, holding a smoking gun, over his victim(s )he's referred to as the "ALLEGED'" shooter.

Because that's being non-judgmental and we have no right to say to anyone what is right or wrong.

   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  I'm betting this is a rather common peeve, however, it does make me really angry. Coming home from the library yesterday, coming up behind us was an ambulance with siren and lights going and we were the only car to pull over. I can only hope that all the cars who refused to move over never need to be rushed to a hospital and can't get through.

   Safetydude  And there's never a cop around. Not pulling over or stopping for an emergency vehicle is a 'prima facie' offence and a slam dunk fine.

I feel the same about driver's here in Florida who drive in the rain without headlights. Even vehicles with DRL's don't have illuminated tail lights unless the headlights are turned on, which is the law down here. A 'prima facie' offence but there is never a cop around.

   MeiDei  Not only do I pull over for a fire engine, police car and ambulance - I say a prayer for those in need, the patient, the doctors & nurses, the EMT's - the owners or renters of the house or business on fire and the police emergency - just a habit I got into years ago & taught my CCD students to do the same -- and thankfully some remember.

   Gram77  Safetydude........Florida is exactly where I am too and I also see many drivers in the rain with no headlights on.

   Safetydude  Gram,

If the day should ever come and Miss Tina or I'm being transported to an ER I want the road cleared.

I think not yielding to an emergency vehicle is way more important than not stopping for a school bus.
But that's enforced!

   Balogreene  Since I've been in that ambulance 3 times, I always pull over. My goodness, let the person get to the hospital.

   Gram77 posted on Music  Fleetwood Mac was on the Today show this morning. Boy oh boy they still have "that sound" that can't be mistaken and they all look great, however, in my personal opinion none of them should sing. The voices have not matured well.

   Ole buzzard  I haven't heard any new Fleetwood Mac music since 1982. Stevie Nicks was well past her prime by then, and she was the lead vocalist. All the rest had great skills on their individual instruments, but they had no vocal capability except Christine McVie, and she was limited.

Truth to tell, they had their heyday, but they let their egos get the better of them.

   Gram77 posted on Photography  Oh boy, what an exciting day........all these train photos! How I would have loved to be in the park where that one photo was taken. I could have seen and maybe TOUCHED it.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I see Gone Girl is about to come to the movies. I read this book and upon finishing it I felt like heaving it into the street! Was this just me being weird? I wonder how the movie will be accepted?

   StormCnter  Gram, I read it too, and I agree that the ending was a cop-out. The movie might be an improvement. Screenwriters don't like changeup endings.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Just got an email from a friend who recommended a book. The title is The Harbinger. Anyone read this? I read an interesting review and plan to check it out.

   StormCnter  I haven't read it, Gram. I looked it up on Amazon and read through the reviews. It's not the type of book I would buy, but I'm interested in what you think of it if you read it.

Do you look up book reviews? Goodreads is a helpful site. I had almost decided to give up on a highly touted book that I was 75 pages into and bored to death, but before I abandoned an expensive hardback, I checked it out at Goodreads. Reviewers there said that the book picks up at the halfway point and turns into a really good one. I've stayed with it a bit more and the reviewers are right.

   Gram77  The only reason I plan to see if this book is really good is that I saw there is a copy at my library. Otherwise I would not buy it.

   Gram77 posted on Nostalgia  I'm sort of all over the place today. Out of nowhere hubby, while watching a cooking show said the cook's apron looks like a feed sack. When I was really little my great grandmother made me play clothes from feed sacks. Their prints were really pretty and the material wore like iron.

   Ole buzzard  During the mid 1950s, my Dad sold Larro (General Mills ) feeds in his feed and grain store. A lot of the Larro products were sold in printed cotton bags.

   BirdsNest  I don't remember them, but Hagar does. When we were in Parachute,CO, Hagar worked on the Union Oil shale project and we shopped in Rifle. They sold 50# sacks of flour and sugar in print sacks at City Market. They also would send you home with dry ice for your cold items if you lived far away-lots of people lived as many as 50 miles away and shopped there.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Just caught the end of an interesting movie with Sean Connery. He is Wm. Forrester in this movie. What did I catch? I'm pretty sure I'd like to see the entire movie.
