   Nugoddess posted on Pet Peeves  I was on my way back from a beer run for Buzz doing, oh, 57 in a 55 zone when a car about two blocks away pulled out in front of me. I had plenty of time to slow down but what really ticked me off was the fact that: A ) there was no one behind me; and B ) the driver decided s/he was going to be Cautious Charlie and drive 45. In a 55 speed zone. On a clear day with no visible obstructions.

We were in a no passing zone so I couldn't just zip around them. I flashed my lights but whoever was driving decided they were the designated Keeper of the Speed.

Seriously, if there is no traffic behind someone while you are waiting to pull out, either wait until the oncoming car passes or find that long pedal on the right side of the footwell and use it appropriately.

(The worst part was Buzz got all cranky about warm beer. I told him he could chill the beer in the same bucket he uses to soak his head. )

   MaxWedge  That gripes me too whenever someone pulls out in front of me, and there’s no one behind me. I think that’s part of the me first mentality that has permeated America over the years. And there is so little courtesy on the roads anymore. But as far as you flashing your lights, I’m pretty sure that is only to be used if there’s a lane where the slower car can move over to. I don’t believe it is used to tell the other driver to speed up. I could be wrong. I’d be interested in how others on here think. And sorry about the warm beer. I hate that. :(

   Safetydude  I'm a part time truck driver and spend three to four hours on the road five days a week, including Saturdays. Most of the time I'm on I-75 between Sarasota and Naples. What I hate are, what I call, 'the left lane bandits'.

AKA "Keeper of the Speed".(Great sobriquet, Nu )

Those are the drivers that believe as long as they are at, or near, the speed limit everybody else should go the same speed as them and they stay in the left lane and thereby robb me of my right to drive at a speed where I'm comfortable...

If I want to be a scofflaw and drive seven to nine miles above the speed limit and take my chances it's my business.

Florida tried to raise the speed limit to 75MPH, which would give us an effective speed limit of 85 on I-75 but the Governator vetoed it.

   Nugoddess posted on Health & Diet  I suffer from sleep apnea - I stop breathing while sleeping (and all the while I thought it was Buzz sneaking in, putting a pillow over my head! ) Anyway, after a sleep study (totally painless ) my physician prescribed a CPAP - Continual Positive Air Pressure, which provides breathing support while sleeping.

I asked Buzz to pick it up for me but wouldn't you know, that stinker tweeked the prescription. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you ...

(wait for it! )

   Nugoddess posted on Main Page The Lobby  Calling 911 because a gopher snake is fighting a squirrel in your backyard might not be the best use of government resources.

   Yottyhere  Wow almost 400 snake calls to 911. Last summer and fall there were a lot of snake sightings here . Our vet said they were getting numerous dogs brought in with snake bites.

When oldest grandson was about 12-13 he had been here at the house all weekend.
The following week I was doing yard work and up under the front porch I saw a black snake curled up in the corner of a I-beam...I figured it was a fake snake left to scare his poor ole Gram by young Master Zach...started to walk up and pull it down so I could leave it in the bed he slept in here......then something made me be a little cautious.
..I called to Buzzard who was working up by the well house to come see what I had found.
He took one look and said 'get back that's not a fake snake!!" I almost fainted......
He got the hoe and got it off the beam and chopped it up.....and the fish got a mid morning snack.....
Was a very long time before I ever went up underneath that porch again....eeeeeeek :P

   Escaped commieny  Ever since I wrote about my 85 lb TerriAnn dying from snake bite and phobia, and Daytona too far away for the antidote and bleeding out in every room of the house, with me not being able to lift her, Ms Nu has taken delight in posting snake articles. After the EASTER snake picture, I know who she thinks she is targeting, forget it girl, I don't take the bait. You need to get out of elementary school mentality.

   Nugoddess posted on Shopper's Beware Caveat Emptor  I picked up some OxyClean™ White Revive last week. It proposes to ''whiten clothes without chlorine bleach.'' To my surprise, it really works!

I tried it on an old down comforter and it came out whiter; same thing with old tee shirts. You might have to use this product a couple of times on really old, tough whites but I noticed a difference right away.

   Linder  Added it to my shopping list. And aren't down comforters the best things in the world...winter and summer. Waiting for the perfect low humidity, slightly windy day to wash mine.

   Nugoddess posted on Music  Possibly the most misunderstood song in our time has to be Louie Louie by The Kingsmen:

Louie Louie, oh no
Me gotta go
Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said
Louie Louie, oh baby
Me gotta go

Fine little girl waits for me
Catch a ship across the sea
Sail that ship about, all alone
Never know if I make it home

Three nights and days I sail the sea
Think of girl, constantly
On that ship, I dream she's there
I smell the rose in her hair.

Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!


Easy way to win a bar bet.
