  1. Hi olof, Some thoughts on those. I would sew that portion that is sticking out ( at about 3 o'clock & pointing to the right in the photo ) in with that now-broken stitching to keep things tidy. Also, I would consider some stitching that would take a pretty good force initially, prior to going to the long sacrificial stitching shown, that is destroyed. Possibly, use a bartack or zig-zag at the top of the stitching. Then you would have to have experience that 'pretty good force' before anything comes undone. Just some random thoughts, Jerry Baumchen
  2. Hi Ken, Oh, the horror. How will we ever survive? Especially, when you consider the failure of eight years of Obama. The horror. Jerry Baumchen
  3. Hi Ken, Not here is Oregon. Our governor has been more pro-active than some others. Not as pro-active as Inslee in Washington state but she's getting there. That does not mean that I think they are masking-up everywhere; as according to my tv news, they aren't in a lot of places. Jerry Baumchen
  4. Hi folks, I wonder how he is going to pay for all of the lawsuits. Re: 'Florida Sheriff Orders Deputies And Staff Not To Wear Face Masks' Woods added that "effective immediately, any individual walking in to any one of our lobbies (which includes the main office and all district offices) that is wearing a mask will be asked to remove it."

  5. Hi airdvr, Many times I have been in unisex bathrooms; none in the US. It usually has taken me a moment or two to study the room & where I need to go. I do not believe that I would have any more of a problem ( and I have none ) sitting on the ceramic throne next to a man ( most of my life ) than I would a woman ( a VERY few times in my life ). And, I would apply that to people of any sexual orientation. Since you are a right-winger, how can you know what the left loves? Jerry Baumchen
  6. Hi sky, IMO most people think that things like this are worth more than they actually are. When you price a 'refurbished' machine, you can get a new one for very little more. Try eBay for what similar machines are trying to go for. Jerry Baumchen
  7. Hi Robert, The story of my life: A day late & a dollar short. Jerry Baumchen
  8. Hi Coreece, You are not getting closer. Jerry Baumchen
  9. Hi Sky, Eight days ago I posted that I 'thought' it would be her. Maybe I'll go back to election consulting. Jerry Baumchen
  10. Hi Coreece, You still cannot show me any law, can you? Jerry Baumchen
  11. Hi Coreece, Please show me any law in any state that requires this. Jerry Baumchen
  12. Hi Joe, It's a veggie burger without the spices. Jerry Baumchen
  13. Hi 13, Keep thinking, that is how problems get solved. Jerry Baumchen
  14. Hi olof, 'The United States Postal Service (USPS; also known as the Post Office, U.S. Mail, or Postal Service) is an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States federal government' And for more info on the Executive Branch: Jerry Baumchen

    Hi Nigel, Hmmm, you just be onto something there. Let me think about it some more. Hey, Coreece, what do you think? :) Jerry Baumchen
  16. Hi Phil, 'Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty' And my all-time favorite: The Nazi's first came for the Communists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak for me. Rev. Martin Niemoeller Jerry Baumchen
  17. Hi Bill, I remember, during one of the debates when Biden would continually be interrupted but could not bring himself to interrupt anyone else, he said something to the extent, 'that it must be my Catholic upbringing.' I accept that people might not disagree with Joe Biden ( I do on occasion ), but I cannot agree that anyone can consider him anything but a decent person. That is probably why Obama & he made such a great team, a truly class team. Jerry Baumchen
  18. Hi Coreece, I have not heard from even one rich people in any nordic country. Have you? What did they say to you? Jerry Baumchen
  19. Hi Robert, Re: '“I’ve not seen one single person wearing a mask,” said bartender Jessica Christian, 29. “It’s just pretty much the mentality that, ‘If I get it, I get it.’” That, along with Trump saying in the Axios interview, 'It is what it is.' pretty much says it all. So much for common sense. Jerry Baumchen
  20. Hi John, I 'think' it was about a week or so ago that Trump said that he and the Republican leadership would have a new health care plan ready to go in two weeks. He has about a week to go, let's give him the week. I am sure that you know, it will be the best, the very best of health care plans. Jerry Baumchen
  21. Hi John, And it is not a state. You know, something about the actions of governors and all of that. Jerry Baumchen
  22. Hi olof, I think that details of this ( and things such as time of opening & closing voting booths, etc ) are the prerogative of each state. But, I really do not know; just have never had a real need to know. We only vote by mail here in Oregon with the exception that one can go to drop-off locations on election day to drop-off their ballot. Jerry Baumchen
  23. Hi Wendy, Every month I mail in the checks for any bills that I have. I do not pay any of them in person. I've been doing this since the 60's with never a problem that I can recall. Anyone, anyone, who thinks that vote-by-mail does not work should come & discuss with our Sec of State ( who is in charge of our elections ), as 60 Minutes did earlier this year. She is a Republican and she said that she did not know of one Oregonian who did not like our vote-by-mail system. Jerry Baumchen
  24. Hi Robert, Shades of Harold Stassen. Jerry Baumchen
  25. Hi Phil, Re: 'a religious pillar having some fun with an employee' While a single photo should not be defining; IMO if that girl is pregnant, I'm thinking she might have just gotten pregnant while on that boat. Jerry Baumchen
