Prudente



   Prudente posted on Main Page The Lobby  I've been here since the beginning and although I rarely post,I lurk everyday. I can usually tell who posted before looking at their name. I may be wrong, but seems like some new names may not be so new. Question: When someone is banned, is there a time limit for reinstatement? Or can they re-register under another name?

   Gerty  Ditto on Gram's comment.

I know of two individuals who have re-registered under different names. But it was soooo obvious, the fraud was uncovered rather quickly.

   Prudente posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Due to replacing a pipe, need to fill in a depression in my garden. It's not very large - Should I just fill it in with top soil? Or some kind of mix (like dirt and sand ). This is in my flower garden. Right now it's mud.

   Rake King  I suggest you use good soil if it's a garden area. Later when you turn your soil you will not have to worry since this soul is the same.

   Rake King  WW: Thanks, my doc has me on a tether. He saved my life a few years back, so I am not one who is forgetting that. In other words I am back unless he sees my numbers go the wrong way. I expect to see this wall become very busy as Spring Rears her head. My best to your family.

   Prudente posted on Main Page The Lobby  After reading about problem with finding a place to bury the Boston Bomber, does anyone know when a prisoner at Gitmo dies, where is he buried? Of course, maybe none have died there.

   Prudente posted on Main Page The Lobby  Evidently I'm doing something wrong. I'm trying to find how many times Obama vacationed in Hawaii before becoming President. I've tried different wording to no avail. Does anyone know where I can find this info? Thanks.

   Prudente posted on Suggested Viewing/Listening  Does anyone else enjoy what I call little B movies? Ones that never got much attention, but are little gems. The other day, I downloaded "A Green Journey". Never heard of it before - made in 1990. Angela Lansbury (sp? ) stars. Now this movie is not award winning but very enjoyable and needless to say she was great.Definitely recommended. Another little "B" movie that was very interesting tho somewhat sad, is Lovely, Still (Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn ). BTW, these are for so called "mature" viewers.

   Prudente  Should have been clearer- saying mature viewers means no sex, no foul language, interesting storyline and older actors.

   Prudente posted on Politics  I've been wondering - evidently from various polls, the majority of Repubs aren't that enthused overall about those running for Pres. They would like "more of a selection". Who would they want included in the current slate that would excite the majority?

   Linder  I came to this site to ask the same question. Who would the dissatisfied Republicans have on the slate? I believe we have potential candidates in the wings but they were wise enough to know they weren't ready for a presidential run.

   Belwhatter  The best people aren't running because of the destruction the media inevitably wreaks on their private lives and and personal affairs. No one in their right mind would do this - except people with power hungry complexes - pointed refeence!

   Prudente posted on Computers &Tech Issues  I use Windows 7 with a pop up blocker. I can't seem to block the audio commercials. Normally I keep my speakers almost off cause I don't like the start up sound, but when I forget I find those audio's irritating. Thanks for any info.

   BubbaEuler  Go to the "Start" menu; Control Panel; Change System Sounds: Change the Sounds Scheme to "No Sounds" (from the computer system ). This will allow you to NOT HAVE start up sounds, as you've described having.

As far as those awful site which automatically start video or audio files when you enter the site, SHAME ON THEM.

   Prudente posted on Nostalgia  My mind floating - Does anyone remember John Beresford Tipton Jr? Yes, the old Millionaire TV show. That got me to thinking why people of money (Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, etc. ) always seem to give to charities and never to individuals. Charities are good, but, giving a few thousand (or hundreds ) directly to someone you don't know seems like a great idea. Someone could pay off their car, or credit card, pay a months rent, whatever. Is it the tax break that keeps that from happening? Or wanting the praise of giving?

   Safetydude  Pru,
I don't mean to offend... why do people that are wealthy through good investments, the brilliance that allowed them to start companies that employ hundreds, discovering and developing life saving drugs, providing opportunities through foundations, et al, owe to any one individual ?
There are millions distributed through charities and foundations.
I'm going to stop here.

   Prudente  My comment disappeared - I agree with you - I didn't make myself clear. If someone is going to give to a charity,(especially if they are making a sizable donation ) why not once in awhile give to an indvidual instead? Pick a name from the phone book.

   Surfhut  How do you know that wealthy people don't give cash to individuals? I bet they do, but they don't announce their gifts to the media. I am certainly not wealthy. A few years ago, a neighbor had a friend who was down and out, and staying at their house. I really couldn't afford it, but anonymously put $200 in an envelope on the windshield of his car. I heard him screaming praise when he found it in the morning. He didn't know it was from me, but it blessed me. What I want to believe is wealthy people do this, too, but don't want a press report about it.

   Rake King  Until his death no one knew that Frank Sinatra took care of a blind girl here in St. Louis paying for eye operations, etc. I agree with Surf, they just don't talk about it. Also, remember if they wish their giving to be a secret, in most cases it remains a secret.

   Ole buzzard  And as I recall, wasn't that one of the stipulations made by the donor in the TV series, that no one was to know the source of the windfall? Frankly, I think those that make a big show of their charity aren't doing it to be charitable, but to shine the light on themselves.
