  • Things I'm tired of hearing about.....
  • 1> Corona Virus, we have a lot of much bigger things to worry about.

    2> Election 2020, Dems have destroyed their own party so let Trump stay in there and lets get on with life.

    3> Royal Family, Didn't we have a tea party for them a few years back?

    4> Toilet paper shortage at Sam's Club, we all have our priorities but why hoard toilet paper?

  • Why the run on TP?...When one person sneezes or coughs in a public place, 10 people around him crap their pants.

  • YEP! It is a respiratory virus, NOT intestinal so why the empty shelves on toilet paper? Because the people went into panic mode- something President Trump was trying to avoid. Here's a clue for you all: It's been here for months, people a year or more, and many have been exposed. It is that many are also immune as well.

  • Beer virus is good. Might bring down the price of Corona.

    2020 elections. Dems will not be happy until Trump is gone. See ya' in another 4 years. Maybe Pence will step up. Sory 'bout your bad luck.

    Royal Family. Royal Woofin Palooza. Great dog show.

    Toilet paper shortage. Lotta Cr*p flying around these days. Gotta have the paperwork to finish it all.

    Danny, ya' got too much time to listen to the silly people.
    Flip on the old movies channel and remember when.

    Bigger worry is getting the septic tank drained. Speaking of which, guess I need to go find the lid to it again.

    Too many problems of my own to worry about someone elses.

  • Re: Things I'm tired of hearing about.....
  • I recently had to locate both lids on both septic tanks here on our property. One tank had to be inspected by Plumbers for county requirements, the other I just figured I would have it cleaned while we were having the other one done. Sometimes cheaper that way. Anyway, I used my metal detector to locate the rebar handles on the lids. Then dug them out. One lid was 31" down but because the rebar gave a good signal on the detector, I was pretty confident on the location.
    Hope you were able to find your lids okay. Good to have both sides of a tank cleaned out every few years.

  • Yup, good idea to pump them. We do it every 5 years. Our tanks are about 30 inches below the finish grade so I removed the original lids and made risers out of some large round storm sewer pipe. Then I made my own lids to fit and they sit about 6" below the grass.

  • Don't listen. Problem solved, and you don't need to gripe about it.

  • Local Costco is restocking toilet paper every day.
    I could care less about the royal anything. Harry and Megan are moving to a place about fourty miles away. I need to check to see if they have a dock. Our Yacht Club will be cruising past later this year. We could pop in for tea.
    Modern communication systems seems to make things like the virus much worse.

  • Only need one sheet of TP for the job. Poke finger through the middle. After wiping, pull finger out while holding TP to clean it. Then, use a clean corner to clean your fingernail and then another clean corner to wipe your noze. No probem.

  • I was in Sam's Club last week and almost all customers had a pack of TP in their baskets -some more than one pack. And almost all also had disinfectant hand sanitizers packs and Clorox wipes. They also had shelves of CORONA beer they were trying to move - no takers. Unbelievable how the chicken little effect trickles down.
