Re: I need info on tablets/Kindle/Nook

I look at it this way. Most work off of wireless. So you wouldn't have anything on them except email, if you use it for that. I don't think their operating systems are something that the people who want to go after for viruses are high on their list. Most viruses attack Window system because it is ...

Re: The BB in NYC

Warm is better and if you want to avoid crowds, go before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. As for lodging, you may want to stay in New Jersey or on Long Island (Flushing, as an example) and take the train/subway/bus into Manhattan. Hotel rates can be as much as 50% cheaper and to ride into Manhattan...

Re: Ireland - County Laois

I've spent a wee bit of time vacationing in Ireland. I've even driven through Mountrath. I didn't stop, that I recall. The last time I past through was while the M7 was under construction and therefore the N7 was the better option for getting from Limerick to Dublin. There aren't a lot of chain hote...

Re: Need some DirecTV help

I was with DirecTv for years. I loved the service, the helpful attitude and the ease of working with them however my bill kept creeping up every six months. The package that I originally got at $19.99 was now costing me in excess of $79.99. Then one day a guy from Dish stopped by, offered me the sam...

Manatee not to start an argument here (Its one of the cool things about this forum) but I don't care what the law says, I don't care what a manufacturer calls a bicycle, there is no such thing as a road bike in the sense of one that can operated on the road safely.

Re: Bicycle Maintenance Question

Pump up the tires, oil the chain, take it out for a quick spin. If everything works, no need for a tune up. As for the notion that you shouldn't ride on the roads, well, that leaves very few places to ride since you cannot ride on the sidewalks, as those are for pedestrians and not bicycles or scoot...

Prior to that, all I knew about her was her work on Last Mango, after that, well, you could say that I was a fan of all of her work. If you get a chance to see her, go, drive t...

Re: Sedona Arizona

If you are going to Phoenix, Tucson and other parts of the desert, shoot for February. As a rule, that tends to be when most of the desert plants bloom. It can be very pretty when all the cacti are blooming. If you see a pretty bloom, take a picture right then because they don't last long. Glad you ...

He wasn't one of the original drummers for the Allman Brothers Band. Butch Trucks and Jai Johnny "Jaimon" Johanson were the original drummers. I don't recall ever hearing or seeing his name associated with Jimmy, other than his claims to have toured for ten years with the "Jimmy Buffett Band", not t...
