   Gerty  I have not heard anything either, but I am interested in knowing!

If she reads this, I hope she is just resting and reserving her strength for the time when she is ready to let us know.

Prayers still with you, Miss Mags.

   Straitpath posted on Main Page The Lobby  I am trying to find worthy candidates to whom to contribute. I send only ten dollars and I make it as anonymous as possible. I don't want my ten dollars wasted on multiple pleas for more money. I am going to send money to Justin Amash from Minnesota based on an article at mother site. I am also looking at contributing to Club for Growth. Any more ideas? Thanks.

   StormCnter  Strait, may I suggest Barbara Comstock, candidate in Virginia's 10th district? Barbara has a long and respected record as a GOP conservative and headed the fundraising effort for Scooter Libby's legal expenses. She was head of the Public Affairs Office in the Justice Department during George W.'s administration and is currently a state representative. https://www.barbaracomstockforcongress.c

   Straitpath posted on Faith  There is at least an oral traditional prophecy in the Mormon Church that at one point our Constitution will hang by a thread and the Elders of Israel will save it. I take the Elders of Israel to be righteous men of whatever religion. I am not too upset by what is happening in the country because I recognize it is in God's hands. In the meantime I financially support good office candidates and appreciate knowing from you who is worthy of such support.

   Straitpath posted on Main Page The Lobby  State Farm really needs to work on customer relations. Are they in a position where they don't think that is necessary? We have been customers for fifty years and have had very few claims. They keep asking for more and more details of our life at every
renewal and not in a pleasant way.. They write, PROVE you have an alarm system by providing a certificate and on and on and on. I talked to the agent and he blamed it on new government regulations. But they have always seemed to have a GOTCHA. Attitude in their communications.

   Balogreene  In 1982, I was driving down Central Ave in ABQ NM. I was going to get my sister, and then we were taking my Fiat X-19 to the body shop. I was hit from the rear (rear engine car ) by a teenager who pulled up so close he thought I'd done a right turn on red. Less than a week later State Farm told me where to take the car to get fixed. As I said, I was on Central Ave, at Rte 25. When the light changed, I started straight through the intersection. An F-250, driven by a female construction worker, turned left toward 25, right into the rear left side of my car. With the roof down, I went spinning down the busy road, at rush hour. After I stopped, I got out, and swore like a sailor (or worse ) at her. When the cop showed up, she told him (crying ) I swore at her. He asked why she turned, she said everyone went right at that intersection. He asked if I had my turn signal on, she said no, he asked if I was signaling with my arm, she said no, he asked if I was pointing like I was going to turn right, she said no. He said he would have sworn too.
Eventually, after two hits at the engine, I got the car into the body shop. The idiot woman and I both had State Farm. They raised my rates. I asked why. They said I was at a minimum 10% to blame, for having the car on the road. They also said they would take all medical bills out of my policy, and raise my rates more.
Haven't used them since. They are not good businessmen.

   StarFire  Our auto, home and banking are all through USAA. They are absolutely wonderful about paying claims fully and quickly. If you're military or former military, check them out.

   BirdsNest  And if you do get a real person, they are in the Phillipines and answer "I know what you mean"(they don't ), "I apologize"(what for, they did not do anything to cause the problem ). Hagar spent 1-1/2 hours and 3 phone calls with 8 transfers of people to finally get someone who could solve a problem with adding a 4G card to the StraightTalk mobile hotspot. Maddening.

   Ole buzzard  Several years ago, I had to order a part for my Dell computer. I even did my research and had the part number. Got the call center in India. I knew I was talking to someone who could only repeat a script. Long story short: they still sent me the wrong part.

   Straitpath posted on Main Page The Lobby  My uncle, Merrill Bunker married my aunt who was from Utah. Bunkerville, Nevada, where the "range war" took place was named after my uncle's family who settled there as pioneers in the 1800's. I spent happy summers in Bunkerville. The sandy Virgin River rubs through the little hamlet. Those farmers and ranchers who lived in Bunkerville when I was there were truly the good people of the earth. Good looking, smart, ethical, spiritual. I don't know the Bundy family and I am not convinced which side I am on, but I do know those people by and large are good people. And they were willing to die for their beliefs last week. My good cousins were there and finished the day sunburned, relieved and joyous. I truly believe we will not regain our lost freedoms without bloodshed.

   Linder  Enjoyed your story of spending summers on the ranch. Whether they are right or wrong I am in awe of this family and other Westerners who stood up to the Federal Government. They are the last of the rugged individual types who made our country great.

   Straitpath posted on Pet Peeves  We buy an Acura mdx and love it. It begins to wear out and we give it to our son and buy a new one. Many of the handy storage places are gone in the new one. The steering wheel is huge and bother my hands The bells and whistles, and there are plenty, are too complicated to work. I maintain with all the past engineering and experience poured into cars we could expect a perfect one by now.
