sometimes getting a bit miffed does help, other times it does not--glad it worked for you --sorry to hear it was a repeat issue.

corolla here has some strange bumping noises--which it has had for a while so not completely worried, but still annoyed that it has not been mentioned the last 3 times the car was in....but soon its winter time and when the snow flies the corolla gets the garage, so I think she is hoping for snow really soon. though hubby also says we should have a cracked piece under the front bumper checked this winter as well, so will try to do both at the same time.

 

my halloween decor has been slowly creeping out.. a pumpkin here, a ghosty there...will get the rest out later this week as I have to get the box out (its on the bottom of the holiday decoration boxes of course)...its one of my favorite holidays to decorate for (probably has something to do with my sister having a halloween bday....).

 

had some rain today and looks like the rest of the week is going to be wet as well...and cool, am looking forward to having the balcony door open again for a bit (and letting the a/c have a day or week off).

Well it worked that time but ya... So last night I get a call from my wife. She ended up getting rear ended on her way home. In the car we just got back from the shop... Thank goodness that both her and her mom are alright, just a bit stiff. Car is in rough shape though... It still drives but the back is majorly messed up. So I have spent my morning driving around to repair shops getting estimates. Needless to say, not pretty. Luckily our insurance is good and will work with those shops. The insurance of the lady who hit us? Ya... not so much... So we are going through our insurance and then letting our insurance deal with hers. So I will get to be without a car for over a week again once I put it into the shop. Again, glad everyone is ok, but it seriously sucks to have to deal with all of this after just getting that car out of the shop. Of all the cars they could have been driving, either the Civic or my mother-in-laws 01 Escape, it had to be the newest car... Oh well... (Just hope they don't total the car out since it is an 09...)

 

Haven't had a chance to do Halloween stuff. I'm sure my wife will start on that soon though.

 

We got a lot of rain yesterday (probably contributed to the accident although it seems like it was lack of attention on the other persons part). Supposed to get some more today and then have a week off from rain. So we will see.

ouch!!! sorry to hear that, hope things work out. Seems like a LOT of accidents these days are due to one driver not paying attention (thought we had laws about texting/using phone while driving...but alas I must remember that the new gens dont think the laws are made for them but for everyone else).

 

rain, yep, but as everyone has said 'we needed it' so it wasnt too bad (and no thunderstorms so it was just nice rain).

We got some work done here, hubby had been eyeing dual monitors (which he has at his office) so we bucked up and got him the dual monitor stand and hooked up some monitors to it, dang that thing is heavy! Good thing our table is solid oak! (eye was drooling over the triple monitor stand, but having very little space to begin with I only gave in to the dual).....cant wait to see our electric bill with another computer part using watts......

 

I got my halloween decor out, and ghosties and pumpkins are adorning as much space as they can (with a few rats...er, fieps roaming as well). And even got some xmas shopping done (at the computer store go figure)....so have a good portion of that already taken care of for this year.

She was older than us, probably 40's. So not sure what happened on her part other than lack of attention. Quotes were between $3000 and $4000... Yikes... Glad I don't have to pay anything but my deductible. Sadly the lady's insurance is not good at all... Guess my insurance can deal with suing them when they don't pay up.

 

Lots of rain yesterday afternoon. Definitely needed so can't complain too much. I have dual monitors now but they just sit on my 2 foot wide desk. It works, but barely.

so, I guess some of the me gen is rubbing off on older folk as well (still think its the phones...) and wow, that is a crazy amount for a car that is still drive-able....hope you have a good agent.

 

I am still working with a 15" monitor, which is not as bad as it sounds since I sit right in front of it (also still on xp...but that is another story).

Supposed to be a nice day today...have the balcony door open, though my allergies are annoyed by it.

Pwnd, so glad your wife is OK.  Having an accident like that is horrible but at least she isn't injured.

 

Cosy I am so shocked you are still on XP.  Apart from missing out on 7, the best OS from MS ever, it is so terribly insecure.  Do you have plans to move?

lol, insecure....I dont have issues with security...I will move when my computer either dies or can no longer function on the web with the 2 browsers I currently use (firefox and chrome). I do not share your opinion of 7 as we have a computer with it as well--and it has just as many issues with it (actually MORE)....so I will stay where I am until I can buy a new motherboard and put a new computer together. (I think xp was the best os, though I was a fan of previous os' that are long gone). I will say 7 is better than anything they have come out with since.

Thanks, Aero. I'm very glad she is okay as well. Definitely could have been a lot worse.

 

Labor is what drives it up. They have to take off the old parts and then put the new ones on. Plus painting and refinishing. So all of that adds up pretty quick sadly. I've got it set to go into the shop this Wednesday and we will go from there. What happens happens.

 

I do miss Windows XP. Was a great operating system. Windows 7 was pretty good and Windows 10 is alright. Just had to keep moving up in order to play computer games unfortunately.

lol No tweeting here. I have Facebook but never use it. It was sad when we lost the original Guru. Hopefully they don't kill this one off too soon...

 

I have a legacy account, but I never get on anymore. I have kind of stepped away from forums as of late.

pwnd, you need to get out of OT more....guru2 is shutting down in december...we are going to have to move our discussions over to legacy!

 

also found out that the dumbasss cable co got rid of the only functional weather channel that actually shows local weather (the weather channel rarely shows weather anymore---and the scrawl they have on the bottom is for cities that are counties away from me...not really useful to know what the weather is like is say des moines when you live in cleveland! so now will have to keep the website of the weather channel in my favorites)

Whattttttttttttttt? Well dang it. I blame Curse for this. Guess I'll have to try to remember my Legacy info. RIP Guru... 

 

Weather channel really only does local on the 8's. Assuming they can fit it in of course. Pretty annoying. Though I guess knowing what Chicago is going to be like helps me out a least a little.

you can blame twitch for buying curse...and THEN curse.

If you have issues with your info, shoot me a line and I will help out (one of the benefits of working over there).

 

yeah, the weather channel very infrequently shows local on the 8's...and when I watch tv (early am...like before 4am) most channels arent even showing anything but infomercials, so even more frustrating.

I'll let you know if I don't remember it. I'm guessing is the same as the one here so hopefully that helps. Darn you Twitch! Who is owned by Amazon if I recall correctly...

 

I use my phone to get my weather now-in-days, it is quicker and more reliable. Plus I don't have to sift through California's weather that way.

welllllll....seeeing as I still dont have a phone (and no wish to spend hundreds of $$ on something that I would barely use---barely use my landline), I dont see me playing weatherman on a phone anytime soon.

Dont think I will understand why they shut that down, the dang weatherchannel doesnt even bother to show weather!! I can remember when I first saw that channel back in grad school....I spent a goodly amount of time watching it (much to the confusion of my roommates who didnt know I had never had cable before)...back then they showed the weather all the time, none of this drama junk, just plain ole weather ---all the time, every day. Ah well, as things change, its not always for the better (just like getting older).

So more things come to an end.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the horror of the shade,

Aww geez guys, I didn't come her to be all depressed and stuff...

 

Looks like the warm weather here is gone. Looking like 50's for the foreseeable future. It was inevitable sadly.

yeah it raining (again...oooo I hear a song!)

 

and the temps have finally moved into a more seasonable level (sad panda)....it was really nice while it lasted and was great to get out in late october without having more than a tshirt and pants! Though the cooler temps are great sleeping weather (which I managed to do for a better part of saturday)

 

sorry to depress you pwnd, that was not the intent. (though I could mention sports right now if you want to be depressed....how about those cubs!)

 

well my allergies seem to be in full swing as well...probably a high mold count ..............
