This is how the instructions for the water filter in my coffee maker explained that it was no longer possible (or, allegedly, necessary) to adjust the filter’s water hardness setting:
“To install, simply follow the steps required with the original cartridge; the only difference is that the “aroma adjustment” has been omitted—blending and flow correspond to average usage and consumption and have been embedded in the design.”

No R34, you’re right. And a closer look in the back of the closet revealed a perfectly-fitting and relatively narrow-lapeled ivory/tan cashmere and wool Hugo Boss jacket. Which I couldn’t wear to a funeral. White shirt, black tie, black slacks and shoes I have. I can’t believe I still have it let alone could find it let alone can wear it again. Keep anything long enough and it comes back in style. There was a bar receipt in one of the pockets from Christmas of 1999 so I know I’ve had it long enough.
I’m right back to being underwhelmed.

R47, I think they should ditch the plain Dorito and make cool ranch the official Dorito and the original can become nacho cheese Doritos. In every group, someone outshines the rest and goes on to be the biggest star. Cool Ranch Doritos are the Diana Ross of the Doritos lineup.

Wow, veterinarians have become expensive. I took my dog in for an exam, update of her vaccines and needed more heartworm and flea/tick medication. It cost me a little over $600.
|by Anonymous||reply 50||August 16, 2023 7:43 PM|
R50, that’s outrageous! I also just got back from the vet where I had TWO cats (that insisted on traveling in the same small carrier because the littler one loves his carrier and naps in it and the bigger one loves the little one and refused to get in his own carrier. I couldn’t get his big butt in so I gave up and he squeezed himself into the carrier with the other one). And exams and vaccines for both combined was only $392. And I do go to the most expensive boutique vet in a big city and ever time I walk out I say “that’s the last time I’m coming here”. I could definitely find a cheaper vet, but they have 5 vets on staff and I like 4 of them. And the last two times I’ve been I was scheduled with the one I absolutely do not like. She’s patronizing and I don’t actually think she’s very good at what she does. I had to email them that she had an error in the notes they sent me immediately after (she said one of my cats had been sneezing for a few days and I told her specifically he has been sneezing since he was adopted in March). I asked them to have her correct that and I specifically put it in an email because she says it’s just allergies and I said I think he has FVR. She looked at me like I was an idiot and asked “What is FVR?” and I said “Feline viral rhinotracheitis”. She doesn’t know me and she doesn’t know what I do for a loving. I’m not a veterinarian and I have huge respect for them because they have to learn the anatomy of a billion different species and breeds and their patients can’t speak, but I do the same thing she does for a living but for people 🙄. I don’t play that card anywhere with anyone (my doctors know because I get my primary at a hospital center I used to work at). I don’t want to influence their judgment and I want them to make the decisions and not let me steamroll them (but unfortunately I have steamrolled my primary care doc more than once.it’s almost his fault. He asks what tests I need ordered and what prescriptions and how I want them written if it’s something I can tell him without him looking up which is basically anything that has to do with infectious diseases.)
Long rant. I hate my vet but you need a new one!!

High quality used bikes are the way to go because you can get a used Trek bike that was $700 for $150, used. Or you can get a brand new, extraordinarily awful prison sweatshop bike (that will impale you via your diaphragm when the handlebars spontaneously slip out of the frame) from Walmart for $150.

Cambridge has announced they've OK'd cross-sidewalk EV charging, meaning you can park at the curb and plug into the car with a cable that comes from your house. You're supposed to use a cord cover as it crosses the sidewalk.
I'd like to be underwhelmed thinking, "Hey, good idea - not everyone has a driveway or a garage" but I know some asshole won't cover it, someone will trip over it and the city (meaning, of course, the taxpayers) will be on the hook for the insurance payout.

R95, There's a large pond in my neighborhood and I used to like to slow down my car adjacent to their shade tree and scream at them to go back to their own country.
I've been crazy about birds, all birds, my entire life and I often slow down and yell at the neighborhood crows, grackles and Mockingbirds when I see them in someone else's yard after I put food out for them in my own yard.

R99 Sidewalks are a public way owned by the city but here taxed as an improvement to the personal property of the homeowner whose frontage they cover and despite not owning the sidewalks the abutting homeowner whose clear passage (salting, sanding, and shoveling in the winter, sweeping in the summer) efforts to maintain that sidewalk are the sole responsibility of the homeowner.) They'll fix it if it cracks, but it's yours until they do
An attorney for someone seriously injured tripping over a unsecured cord across the sidewalk would investigate the assets and insurance coverage of the person charging the car. Since it's not a moving violation, it's not covered under the auto policy and one would hope that a home owner but especially a renter would have some coverage for the contents of their unit and for liability. If they don't, or if they do and the lawyers are seeking a larger award, any lawyer would go after the city for promulgating a potential hazard on a public way and not demanding and enforcing its correct placement. And rather than fight it in court, the city will attempt to come to a settlement so as not to risk going to court and having a jury find them liable for even more extensive and expensive damages.

One type of bird seems stupid. When a car is behind them, they hop forwards (still in the path of the car).
The other type of bird seems smart. When a car is behind them, they hop to the side of the road. They take their time, but they hop to the side of the road and out of the way.

I didn’t feel better, but it wasn’t my fault. He started it. There’s a reason they have the TV tuned to HGTV in waiting rooms.

R107, I’m not saying Trixie [italic]isnt’t[/italic] in a gang (she probably is) but vets put those on tattoos on spayed female cats so that if they get lost and picked up and taken to a shelter, before another vet tried to spay her, they’d see the tattoo and know she was already spayed and stop before they did something unnecessary.
My cat just had a little black X on her belly and after I got to know her I wondered if I could get the tattoo redone as a little skull and cross bones. Not seriously enough to ask anyone, but enough that I thought about who I would have to ask.

Bean cooker, here. I guess cooking dried beans is associated with penny-pinching and poverty. I am just relieved to have learned how to cook beans from dried. I like to think I'm a decent cook, but for the longest time, I just could not get the beans softened. I have noticed that my food / grocery bills have gone down since I learned how to cook beans (from dried).

I love making Tuscan beans. I soak a pound of cannellini or navy beans overnight, drain them, then cook them with a quarter-cup of EVOO, several cloves of garlic (unpeeled), some sprigs of sage leaves, a little tomato paste, and rinds from some Parmigiano-Reggiano, which I save in the freezer. I salt them after cooking.
Utterly delicious. Don't remind me of poverty in the least. Seriously.

I do use black-eyed peas in place of pinto beans all the time because they cook about 4 times faster than most beans. But I totally get it if you don’t like them.

Took Cos for his annual check up on Monday. He's up a 1/2 lb. to 15 which is more than I'd like him to be. But he also has an intestinal virus. Since he's an indoor cat, the vet thinks he got it from something I tracked in on my shoes. I feel terrible. He has medicine that I have to mix with his food but he's not eating much due to the medicine. It's a liquid and I've mixed it with his wet food and and dry food. I don't think he's getting enough of the medicine to do any good. May have to call the vet to see if the meds come in a pill form I can crush up in his wet food.

Some people get tic-like compulsions to use a word over and over, even when they're aware and growing self conscious of using the word.
It seems like when one gets a song stuck in one's head-- not in the usual way, where the song is simply playing in the background of one's mind-- but when it is aggressively blasts itself at all times. Once when I was under a tremendous amount of both mental and physical stress and very little sleep, I got Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves so invasively, loudly and persistently for three solid weeks-- I thought I might need to go to the doctor, I thought I might have had a brain tumor.
Sorry to change the subject. I was trying to humanize the neighbor. Is there anything else annoying about him? Does he say it in a smarmy way? Is he older? I'm in the minority but I don't think he meant anything bad by it, but we'd have to see the whole scene with audio to know for sure. Do you have dozens of security cameras with audio so we can see for ourselves?

But my neighbors got together earlier this year and told me that they had all decided-I’m the next president. They did this before asking if I wanted to do it. At first I said hell no, but then the condo management company and the president pissed me off so badly, that I went from “no I don’t want to do it” to “ok we’re doing it but we have to be sure we have a plan and enough votes”. We’re a small building so I talked to enough people. We definitely have the votes.

R205, oh we know. The president dated another board member and he dumped her because she’s psychotic. She’s had screaming fits in the hallway and thrown things at people. 😳. She filed complaints against everyone in the building and leaves passive aggressive notes on people’s doors. We put up security cameras as much for security as we did to stop of her from doing it. Now she hides out of sight of the cameras and takes pictures of people’s doors and complains that a scrap of paper the size of a dime was spotted outside someone’s door and they haven’t cleaned it up yet. She’s too dumb to realize we still know it’s her because she’ll walk past the camera and then hide in a corner and snap a photo and send it to the management company to complain (and they’re ridiculous. They’ll actually a scolding email someone over a paper scrap smaller than a dime) and we can match the email time stamp to the video of her. Plus the management company has fucked up and forwarded her emails without removing her email address, and they are definitely supporting her or they would just tell her to stop and seek help.
We’re fully expecting her to have a meltdown. But it’s ok. She moved out of the building and rents her place out (but still comes back to the building every week! She has one friend here) but everyone hates her and has been asking me how we get rid of her. She’s not even supposed to be the president! Nobody in their right mind would have voted for her. We’re a really small building and it’s hard to get people on the HOA, so anyone who even hesitates to say no becomes a member. She was the vice-president which is the only position that has absolutely no power to do anything and then the president sold his unit and she’s been the temporary president for almost a year.
Her ex thinks she’s going to sell her place and literally 80% of the people in the building have said “I wish she’d just sell and leave us the fuck alone!”
It’s gonna be dramatic and I’m gonna be the one telling her we are voting to remove her. Fun times tomorrow.

Oh yeah, and the coup is pretty much certain. 80% of the owners want her gone.

And the same 80% want to fire the management company. (Most of them want us to sue them!).
Unless a bunch of us get hit by a bus tomorrow (driven by the president) the coup is just a matter of hours.

For a few months, the profiles in my People You May Know all had to do with Keanu Reeves.
Does anyone know what was up with that? Was that some kind of trend?
The profiles had Keanu's first name and/or last name and/or photo, like 8/10 of them.
I asked my old friend who uses FB regularly what was up with the Keanu people and she had no idea what I was talking about.

My HOA board drives me crazy. They let me know if they think my door color is too bright, or if I leave the trash container out an extra day, or I wear too little clothing (a bathing suit) in my screened in porch. Last month I was swimming in the pool at 9:15pm; it closes at 9:00. I lost track of the time. An old lady comes to the gate and demands I leave the pool. I am swimming laps gently; I'm not generating much noise.
"It says 9:00 and so you must leave at 9:00. It's not rocket science. Get out!"
Good Lord, I'm not a twelve-year-old. I know how to swim and I am very healthy. The gate isn't even locked at night. I didn't tell her that for years, I skinny-dipped in the pool after midnight. One drunk lady caught me in the act once. I pressed my body to the pool wall so she wouldn't see me. She babbled there for over an hour and a half. Thank God she didn't join me. Why didn't the old lady come out to tell the drunk woman she should not be hanging out at the gate past 9:00?

It’s done. Part I of the Great Coup of 2023. The president was removed from the board. I am the President now.
And it was surprisingly underwhelming. This woman is a screamer so we thought she was going to go ballistic, but she didn’t.
This was the hardest part to accomplish but also the easiest deal with. She’s gone and she didn’t have a meltdown. She said she felt like a couple of people were conspiring against her and I resisted the urge to say “No lady, EVERYONE wants you gone. It’s not a conspiracy when everyone wants to get rid of you.”
Part II will actually be much easier to accomplish. I only need 50% of the board to get rid of the management company and I have 100%. But it scares me more because we need a lawyer. We probably are going to sue and I’ve never been in a lawsuit and I don’t want it to drag on for years.
But it’s coming. My coup is halfway done.

I was bored earlier waiting for a co-worker to get a document back to me so I decided to clean out my Yahoo throw away email accounts that I use to sign up for unimportant crap.
I came across not one but TWO Daily Mail emails from about a month ago reprimanding me for something I said about Tom Cruise. In the first email they said they received "too many complaints" and removed my comment. They quoted the title of the article however they did not quote my comment so I can only guess what I said. The second email said they reviewed the matter (apparently there's an automatic appeals process, lol) and decided they would "not reinstate" my comment. WTF, who cares. The DM tribunal is taking whatever sarcastic remark I made about little Tom and his little buddy Miscavige way too seriously. And that's probably exactly what my comments was "little Tom" and "little buddy Miscavige".
I've come full circle. I posted on DM when I was bored during a work lull and now once again during a work lull I've cleaned up the aftermath of my unacceptable DM posting.
In conclusion: no more DM posting for me no matter how bored I get.

On the drive, I had told my son that gold and silver bar people usually have weird beliefs, so not to be surprised if the shop had Rambo Trump posters and things. He said “Hey, ‘e pluribus unum!’” He’s funny.
The coin store had a sign inside the foyer that said no minors, so we had to move on. After running some errands, we found another coin store in a neighboring town. The guy running it looked like Ted Nugent and had the Don't Tread on Me themed decor, just as I had imagined.
My son got a “3-cent nickle” which I didn’t even know was a thing, and a peace dollar, which I also know nothing about. The guy running the store shook his hand twice and kept using his name and calling him sir and things, so now he wants to go back every two weeks. He’d better get a job.

If you find yourself near a Walmart this pumpkin season, I highly recommend their Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies. Very good, nice cream cheese filling. I learned about them from this couple a few years ago and get them every year now.
Also, Walmart Bakery's "Decadent" line of cookies is very good. This couple has reviews on many of Decadent cookies. I like the Decadent Oatmeal Raisin which have regular & golden raisins and the Decadent Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk but they have a ton of varieties in the Decadent line to try. Beware the calories listed on the package are for HALF a cookie.

So I asked “I’m sorry, but are you able to hear me or are you deaf or hard of hearing?” And he said “No, I’m not deaf or hard of hearing. You’re like the 5th person to ask me that tonight! What is going on?!”

I went to a student dance bar after the football game in this college town. Most of the guys were shirtless, and it didn't seem to impress the young ladies in the club. Some of the guys were really peacocking. I'll grant most of them have worked out and had a right to be shirtless. Thirty years ago, I would have approached a sad one who was passed over by the ladies that night. Getting a blow job is much better than not getting one.

I devoured a honeydew melon last week. I have bad luck with watermelons and didn’t feel like throwing $6 away again, so I opted for a honeydew melon. I hadn’t had one in years. It was so unbelievably good. I let it sit for a few days after I got it, until I could catch a faint whiff when I held it to my nose. I know this sounds sexual but I swear by it— it works for pineapples, and mangoes, and pretty much all fruit (within reason). If you can’t smell it but you go for it anyway, you’re going to be let down. I have this rule for restaurants as well. If it doesn’t smell like food when I set foot in there, I leave! I’ve never had great food at a place that didn’t smell like cooking. I’ve been charmed by the staff and stayed despite my instincts, and it is never good, just $30-$60 down the drain.

I have a lot of albums set up in Apple Photos. You can sort the albums at any time by name or date on a Mac, but the program that synchs your Mac with your mobile devices does not keep track of the sorting of albums. If the albums get out of order on your mobile device (which can happen easily if you add new ones or scroll through them because an accidental touch on the album name can wind up moving the album within its folder), the only way to put them back in order is to move them manually—one at a time.
Things got so messy on my iPad, my only option was to erase my iPad and start the Photos sync from scratch. It may take days to completely download.

R393, I still get them and whenever I’ve mentioned them to someone, they always tell me they do too. The most common recurring one for me is that I show up to take a final exam for a class that I’ve never attended once and haven’t studied for. Those are anxiety inducing.
One time I had one where somehow I missed some critical classes in high school even though (in real life and in my dream) I’d already finished college. But for some reason that dream didn’t totally freak me out. I was going to be allowed to keep my college degree, but as a very old adult, I was sent back to high school and had to take some classes again because apparently there was a mistake and I hadn’t taken them so my high school diploma was revoked. It wasn’t scary like taking a test for a class you know nothing about. More, aw man, I know I already took this but you’re making me take it again? Fine. I don’t care.
I bet everybody in the world gets them except for Lauren Boebert. I can’t imagine what her bad dreams about school are. She didn’t finish high school and needs to go learn some stuff? How could that be scary to her? That’s her real life.

I waited tables as a teens and and I still get those "in the weeds" dreams as well. Later, in my early 20s, I worked second shift in a nursing home as a CNA.
My duties included getting everyone up from their naps, getting them spiffed up and wheeling them down to the dining room for dinner, helping them eat, then wheeling them back to their rooms and putting them to bed for the night. We were always "short staffed", but those places always are, they have no intention of keeping a truly adequate staff levels, especially us grunts; it's all lies.
It was emotionally whelming for many reasons, including the residents (as they were called) either wanted to go to bed right this damn minute or they wanted to stay up, or they would go to bed without fuss either way and then confusedly keep getting up and getting dressed to "go to breakfast" every two hours after going to bed. I always felt like the reverse of the Little Old Woman Who Lived in the Shoe (with so many children she knew not what to do). I was the kid who was trying to be responsible for this ragtag crew of old people who were raising hell, wandering around with someone else's teeth in their mouth, dying (sad), getting into each other's beds, pissing in the clothes hamper, etc. I would run to help one and two more would be getting into trouble when my back was turned.
We had a lot of people who had lived through the Depression and as such, there were many food sneakers (would-be hoarders but we went through their things too much for it to get to that point-- a stash of old bananas and saltines in a drawer, etc). They'd glean from the dinner trays of others who didn't have an appetite as we were busy wheeling those who couldn't walk out of the dining room.
I'll never forget June walking down the long hall with her walker-- I could tell them by ear, I learned their gaits by osmosis, just like you can tell your dogs apart in the dark just by listening to their footsteps, you know who walks how. Anyway, June, at the very end of the hall, almost to her room, about seventy feet from me at the beginning of the hall, charting paperwork before leaving for the night-- I remember glancing up at her long enough to see her stop for a beat and then and triumphantly pivot her walker toward her door just as pleated baggies of ham salad sandwiches fell out of the bottom of her skirt.
I still dream of these people. I dream that the hallway never ends and everyone is crying to be put to bed. I miss them all and I will be happy to see them again someday.

I thought the most recent iteration of Aunt Jemima looked really nice with her stylish hair, pearl earrings and lipstick. It's sad that they replaced the Cream of Wheat man with a few staffs of wheat, Aunt Jemima unceremoniously labeled Pearl Milling Company and replaced with a generic image of a building. Uncle Ben's image is gone and they didn't even bother with an image of anything else.
It's worse, in a way. They had become more than that, over the decades. They deserved better. It's like they died.

I thought the image update was to turn her into a savvy businesswoman instead of, well, essentially a slave. So I liked the change in appearance, but the name “Aunt Jemima” was always going to be a painful reminder of the history of the brand, so I think ending it was the right thing to do. But at least the product lives on under a better name (and being nostalgic for a racist caricature doesn’t sound very pleasant).

I sometimes drive through the old neighborhood when I am passing by. It hasn't changed a bit. I can see things happening 60 years ago when I pass the houses. Now all of those kids are 65-75 years old. All of our parents are dead. The woman who now lives in the house I grew up in cut down the evergreen tree my parents planted on the day I was born. It reached 15 ft. tall when I went off to college. Dad would put strings of those large lights that were predominant at the time all around the tree. Our neighbors loved it.
My nephew-in-law could not believe my sister and I could name the occupants of those houses when we grew up when we went on a Christmas light ride. We remembered dozens of them.

R536, does it need iron? My dad has some maple trees and the leaves were starting to yellow while the veins remained green. He treated them with iron that can be sprinkled around the tree, and it helped a little. The next year they were still looking week so I told him to get some iron injections for them. You have to drill a small hole in the tree, not too deep, and pop the "injection" in, it's like a little cartridge/capsule. That helped a lot.
Maples are known for getting anemic, at least in my neck of the woods. It will kill them eventually, if not treated. You can get the iron injections on Amazon.

You're wise, R583. If you complete one and the ratings you give are decent, they'll never stop sending you more.

I had a fun day but over did it. I went on a two hour hike this morning and then played tennis. This afternoon I rode my bike to the beach and swam a lot (but also rested on the beach). When I was ready to head home I wished I had my car.
I’ve been laying on the couch for a couple of hours and feel like I can hardly move.

I once wrote "I enjoyed it while naked" in the margin of a Nielsen ratings book after marking Here Come the Brides.
I wasn't looking at the brides.

You were right the first time. So sorry about the cognitive decline.

A friend once told me that he had been watching "Gilligan's Island" episodes and was surprised to discover that it was a really funny show. And I thought, "The poor thing."

Multiple open "I Want To Be Underwhelmed" threads always threatens to whelm me.
