I cut the cable a decade ago and any show i want watch i can usually find available on the internet...so Thar! A quick search and most if not all episodes of the rifleman can be found on Youtube
We did that about a year ago, mainly because we don't watch that much TV and we got tired of paying their outrageous prices and fees. But, I do like to watch the occasional football game and both Mrs. TN and I enjoy watching HGTV every now and then so I got us YouTube TV and that's just fine for us. Like you, I found I can find whatever I do want to watch on the internet

So I made it through the remaining 9 hours of videos today (now I truly know what it means to be mentally tired) so I'm all done with this online class. Now, I have to start taking their practice exam (Measureup); it's 151 questions and we have to score 85% before we can request the vouchers to take the official Microsoft exam. Personally, I was going to skip the vouchers and pay for the test out of my own pocket so I could bypass all the mandated bullchit but my boss put the guilt trip on me by telling me they had already paid for everyone's voucher (sigh...) so I'm playing the game. After I take the Microsoft test then it'll be time to start on the 2nd part of the cert, which means 16 more hours of online class. Blah! And so it goes.

It's finally finish raining, but it looks like we have some really cold weather coming our way the next few days so I don't know if Mocha and I will get to hike or not...high of 32 tomorrow and Monday, then a balmy high of 38 Tuesday...at least it looks like we'll have sunshine and low winds so a hike is a possibility...at least it'll be a break from the studying and I know Mocha is dying to get out again.

My brain hurts....

My trucks are out of warranty. I just take them to my tire shop. Has been simple fixes with most of my encounters with them.

I better stop here because I don't want to summon ill will upon myself.
That's a very good question, Denny. And I shall try to answer you the best I can

The local Ford dealer is right down the street from us, which is convenient.
With many services, they are priced the same, or even less than the other places and with them, I know a Ford certified tech is looking at my vehicle and putting genuine Ford parts on it. For example, an oil change at quicky lube or valvoline cost around $60-$70 (and they always pressure you to get the better oil, and replace this and that). At Ford, I get the works package for $49 which is an oil change (using the correct oil), plus tire rotation, a check of all fluids, and a multipoint inspection.

This can be a shady town, with the large army base here....too many people try to inflate their prices and rip off the military including retirees so over time, I've kinda figured out who's half-way honest.

melbrod I was thinking of street bikes where the front tire comes out of the frame easily, and often has a quick release thingy to make it even easier. Whereas the back wheel is firmly attached to the frame and has those gears and chains on it too. Of course, you're also supposed to go through the frame with your lock.

Put the lock only on the front wheel and you get this:

though it looks like he also had a cable lock through the back which got cut.)

You're supposed to chain it to something immovable too...but I bet you could use Hoss in a pinch. I don't imagine anyone would steal a TRIKE (notice my attempt to conform) belonging to a doberman.

ECIN High volume of trike theft in this city.
Got to lock them up.

That's because all there is down there are OLD people wanting one and there SS is to low to get one

LadyDi [QUOTE=melbrod;4109461]Umm...that one doesn't have a quick release mechanism??[/QUOTE

I can lock my brakes ...at each brake handle to keep it from rolling away.
But it would not prevent theft.

If I can lay claim to anything, it's being variant.

Though I am in awe of the variant-ness of ECIN's spelling. Professional vs sheer amateur.

ECIN Oh Mel - we have had the same thing here - lol Ali was the worse - really the worse time to let them out is when its sprinkling or just about done raining , with a drop here and a drop there - they start out , back up then come back out some - then a drop hits them in the head , then they back up real fast , then I'm saying , are you coming out or going back in , then about 50 percent of the time - they will come out - do a circle and want back in - all the while looking at you like get that damn door open dad

Is this what your talking about ?

melbrod Sometimes my aim is not so good with my weather directing.




Thank you modm for the music vid. SO much better than the stuff that normally gets posted here.

You have no idea how impressed I am with this, ECIN. Mine always insist on the door actually being opened, letting in the cold and a little of the wet, before deciding not to go out in it. As for going back to sleep, nah. They have to stay up so they can ask again 5 minutes later, because, you know, maybe it's stopped raining (or snowing, or blowing, or at least stopped being inclement, anyway.)
