  1. I loved the Michael Praed version of that show. Never worked as well after he left, imo.
  2. Knock knock. Who’s there? A little old lady. A little old lady who? Wow, I didn’t know you could yodel.
  3. And in fact, the first Star Trek pilot rather famously ended up being an episode as well (two, actually) in spite of very major changes. Waste not, want not.... 😄
  4. Ditto. Although we may vary on the definition of "noise"..... 😄 I think it's interesting ... I've noticed the vast majority of my friends will only listen to the music they learned to love as teenagers/20-somethings. They won't even try to listen to something new. Me, I love every decade ... but not every style of music. Have never learned to appreciate either country or hip hop, for example. But at least I give new music a listen, and sometimes I hear a gem. Just discovered Avi Kaplan for example; beautiful deep voice. Still nobody better than U2, though. 😋
  5. I remember reading (or being told, I forget) that the broad majority of Americans are extroverts. I wonder if that's true ... maybe that would explain why everything is being MADE louder, brighter, busier ... because it doesn't look busy to the extroverts that are making them? If introverts ruled the world would it be a quieter, calmer place? Hmm. Hmmm, maybe, but my guess is that it's more to do with what you get used to. I avoided pepper as a kid, for example, but the older I get the more likely I am to use it ... starting to appreciate the flavor! I also used to use tons of salt, but when they started saying salt was bad for you, I cut back ... and now a lot of prepared foods taste too salty to me. I barely use salt at all when I'm cooking anymore. Alas, in spite of my best efforts, my sweet tooth has not abated.....
  6. Same here. I've had something similar happen with my website; company suddenly announced they were closing it down unless I paid them beaucoup bucks. Guess I'll do without one for awhile. After all the problems (and expenses) connected with getting a smartphone, and after Amazon signed me up for Prime without my permission, I have decided that tech companies are simply evil.
  7. That's the whole website? Holy cow. We're doing this wrong.
  8. Maybe it's a golf ball factory, so when they test their golf balls...... 😊
  9. I think maybe that belongs in the WTF thread too. 🙄
  10. I don't know what it is, but there's a fence very similar to that not far from here. It doesn't enclose anything, it just runs alongside the road, and on the other side is a golf course. It's to keep stray golf balls from hitting cars. Could there be anything like that inside that fence? Putting range, maybe?
  11. I just saw this in my news feed, sounds like it was scary but everyone's okay. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/benedict-cumberbatch-and-his-family-were-threatened-by-an-angry-chef-wielding-a-fish-knife-who-tried-to-attack-their-home-and-rampaged-around-their-garden-report/ar-AA1bRrde It's a crazy world out there, alas.
  12. Oh Gawd. I knew I shouldn't have peeked into this thread. But since I'm here... Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
  13. What? I'm shocked! Who would do such a thing?
  14. I'm pretty sure at least one of these is Photoshopped but they're still pretty funny.....
  15. Egad. I really AM getting old. I mixed the names up. Kili is definitely the pretty one, and there was a time when I knew that very well....... 😛
  16. I've had this conversation a couple of times. When I was younger I would have said yes. Now, though ... yeah, dentistry.....
  17. Remember when there used to be all different color cars on the road? Now there's like 5. Black, white, gray, red, dark blue. The occasional yellow beetle (which, frankly, I could do without. ) I miss my beautiful teal Mustang, and the family's metallic sea green Buick....
  18. My tortie's a girl. Just sayin'. Burrowing owls.
  19. Yeah, I figured that might be the case, since it's a subscription service. And they seem to have removed it anyway now. 😞
