for 2 minutes I turned onto one of the Kardassian shows (I was "flipping" through).... Kim was discussing with Chris the horrible, terrible year Khloe had; that people have no idea how tough and difficult it's been for her; and what she is currently going through is rough... really? Has she struggled to feed her family? Has she dealt with a catastrophic disease; did she loose a love one; Did she contract Ebola? Poor rich, famous, beautiful, has everything everyone else in the world wants Khloe... talk about First World Problems!

And that is why I don't watch those shows...

Me personally... I am blessed and have no real complaints...

In the summer the gas Company charges Me $8 a month for the privilege of having them send a Bill, Even when I use no Gas and even turn off the Pilot light ..


My 10 cup automatic drip coffee maker really makes only 3 decent sized cups..

Yeah, we got that, too. In Feb last year, I had a $24 power bill, $12 of which was a "thanks for being an FPL customer" charge.

At 7-11 yesterday, they were out of the little paper dealies that go on the outside of the coffee cups. I had to use two hands to carefully hold the hot cup, meaning I did not have a free hand to text on my phone.

My icemaker broke on my fridge. How am I supposed to enjoy cocktails during these horrible 70 degree weather days? There's a man coming to look at it today. Harrumph!

My ancient (2007) computer only has a 32-bit bus and only 16 gigabytes of storage. It's running sooo much slower that I have to wait for up to 30 seconds for BikeForums to load up. Might have to junk it and buy a new 64 bit bus rig with a full gigabyte of RAM and a terabyte of storage. Oh, the inconvienience !!!

The problem I'm having is with the online forums that I visit. The forums have generally been good, but lately I'm finding problems with moderators of these sites. The moderators are generally cowards, and do more to chase good members away, than patrol for trolls. Weak, spineless, overly self important is how I see them. I guess all forums are not like this, I need to find one.

That won't work. Sell the BMW and you have money for more bikes.

If I replaced it with a Boxster I would have room for two more bikes. Either way, it is a horrific problem to solve.....

Try B&B. It swings a bit too much to the Nazi-like side IMO. I was surprised how the smallest slants are edited. Still, I'll take that over the anarchy that exists in some forums.

When I watch old tv and movies I am sometimes distracted by the bouncing floating barge cars. They seem unfit for human transport. Then I remember we have SUVs now.
