No No NO, you cannot use steam machines. When I was in 7th grade, I leaned up against a radiator
and burnt a line across the back of one of my legs. It was very severe. Still have a scar there.

I have locked this topic because what sort of started out as a bit of fun, is leaning
on the political/blame side.

Anyone can google 'clowns' and see where clowns originated which relates back
to Scandinavia and Old English times, Shakespeare, etc.

In regards to 'child predators', people wearing 'clown' masks are the least likely
to be feared, in my opinion. The most detrimental child predator may be sitting
across the table smiling at you from your favorite diner. The majority of child
predators is known by the family of the victims....the pastor, the uncle, the aunt,
the babysitter, the teacher, etc.

It's always been known that child predators entice children with candy, smiles,
pets, and yes, even a variety of tricks, masks, and other antics.

Unfortunately, social media and various topics can do more harm than good when
it comes to these types of ploys and conversations in which people want to blame
someone else for the often creepy and diabolical world we live in today.

Oh boy! We figured out the sex of the feral kitten » Post #4

Wed Oct 19, 2016 10:36 in General Talk

Well that is all I know to tell you.

Maybe when the kittens get a little bigger, they'll be more use to you.

Get some treats and give to them and then you can keep the treats
in your hand and make them come to you to get the treat.

You do have some options.

1. Take them to an animal shelter that is a no kill shelter. If you are not sure of where they are,
you can call around, do a search online, contact any no kill shelter to help you.

2. Take them to a busy area such as a Walmart parking lot, and put a sign Free Kittens, and as
people go in and out of the store, you might find someone that is wanting a kitten. This isn't the
greatest idea of course but it is an option. You just never know when someone has a child birthday
and was planning on getting a kitten. Just not the best idea due to 'weird people' that may have
ruthless ideas.

3. Contact the local vet office. They usually have bulletin boards in which you can post a picture.
Also the local vet might have some contacts/help for you.

4. Ask the local vet if they will 'fix' the kittens for you or at the very least, give you a special deal
to have them 'fixed'. This is very important. Not having cats spade/neuter just adds to the unwanted
problem.

5. Keep them.

I have three outside cats and all three of them, adopted me. Having a male cat is not a bad idea
because the male cats tend to keep other cats away, especially male cats. The first cat that adopted
me is 'Miss Lucy'. She came around one day crying like crazy and wouldn't leave. She happen to be
pregnant at the time too. She had the kittens and all were male but one. The males were wild and
drove each other away. I've had Miss Lucy for at least 5 years and her one female 'Miss Cookie' almost
as long. Last summer 'Mr KiKi' came along. He was in rather bad shape with a bad leg. He looks
like the kind of cat that should be a housecat, long haired. Every cat that comes onto my property
that sticks around, I take to have spayed or neutered. I only feed them dry cat food. They feed them
first thing in the morning when I get up. I feed them again at 5pm. I feed them again at 10 pm.
They get dry food 3 times a day. They really don't eat a whole lot because they are here on over
7 acres and they hunt, eat mice and such.

I have a home made house for them. I keep straw and heating pads inside.

They actually earn their keep, you could say. They kill moles and mice. They even catch small
snakes. They're actually very good cats.

I have one inside cat.... Mr Kitty aka Boogie. He was a stray cat too and I have had him about
ten years.

@chrystalia I have a lot of yarn but not a huge amount. I have several tote bags full. I made several orders, to say the least, back a few years ago. My intent was to make granny squares in various colors and make 3 bed cover throws for each of my children. I need to get back to that. I had told myself if I make just one granny square a day, which would only take a few minutes, that in 30 days, I would have 30 granny squares. Guess how many granny squares I have?

I will tell you. One. I have only made one.

The tins I find the prettiest are the ones I have bought from kids selling door to door. They usually have chocolates in them. I have one that is so pretty. It is a teal color with decorative print and has a hummingbird sitting on a long on the lid. I just love it. It is a small tin only about 4" around and about 6" tall. It is my favorite. I have another small one that looks like a lattice garden. It is a small one too. I have a few from Wal Mart but I like to collect the more unusual ones.

I use to buy a few products from the candy/cheese companies out of Wisconsin. Some of them
I would buy simply because the tin was so pretty. The Danish butter cookies sold at walmart,
they have the big decorate ones at Christmas AND although I have not noticed the small ones
in the store, they sell the small ones online AND you don't usually know which decorative tins
you'll get. I ordered half a dozen of the small ones online a couple of years ago and every one
of them had a different decor tin.

Anyway, I do understand the attraction to the decor tins because many are very pretty.

Get money for receipts? » Post #3

Mon Oct 17, 2016 10:40 in General Talk

There are stores that will give money back on receipts.

Walmart dot com for example will give cash back if their receipt finds a lower priced item in
the customer's location.

I'd suggest posting your question in google and see what comes up.

I upgrade 1st » Post #2

Mon Oct 17, 2016 10:36 in General Talk

Yes.

You can upgrade by whatever option you choose that is available to you.

You can also cash out by whatever option is available to you.

It does not matter which you use for upgrade or which you use for cash out. Either is fine.

@Micshad No, can't say as I remember the daisy stuff.

Made me think of when I was a kid and collected comic books. There was a drug store that was
on my way home from school and I would stop in there almost every day and buy candy, silly toys,
but mostly 'Archie Series' comic books. They were $0.12 cents and some times they would have
the double feature comic books for a quarter. I did buy a few others too such as 'Baby Huey', 'Dot',
etc. I had stacks of them and I would read some over when I didn't have new ones to read.

Then Vietnam came along and one day my grandmother ask me if I would donate my comic
books to the 'boys in nam'. You know, I think that was one of the hardest things I did when
I was a kid, let loose of all those comic books. Not sure how many I had..... 300 to 500 or maybe
more.

Years later when I think back on it, I just wonder how many of the 'boys in nam' actually liked
reading 'Archie series comic books'? Maybe so but I suspect they were more into superman
and super hero comic books. I do often wonder what became of all those comic books. Could
they still be floating around Vietnam some where?

The reason why they did not smile in their pictures back then was usually due to their teeth.

Export referral email » Post #3

Sun Oct 16, 2016 14:56 in General Talk

When a referral joins, you receive an email that contains the new member user name and email address.
You can then save the email or add to your email address book and contact the new member. Some
referrals do not want contact and if that is the case, it will simply display 'private' and you cannot contact
them.

So in essence, there is no need for exporting email address since you already have them.

In addition, as the member posted above, you can enter a message in your account affiliate area and
when they log in, they will see it.

Do the advertisers have option of the display time » Post #4

You can stop/pause the ad.

You can also submit a support ticket first and let them know you want to purchase
an ad pack and you want it to begin at such and such time. They may do that for you.

Yeah but you know to me it gets really old and has gotten really old to me, for a very long time.
What I mean is all the various terminology. As you yourself once said, it is words.

I actually hate to see some of the terms leave because they were founded by hard working people.

The 'Avon Lady' started way back when women were not accepted in 'men's' jobs. I suppose with
World War II things began to change because the men were at war and the women had to work.
My grandmother was even a 'rosie the revitor'.....reveter.....reviter....whatever.

In addition and primarily Avon sold women's products. Back in those days, many of those products
were considered personal.

Now I guess they should call it Avon Sales Person.....or some such as that.

A friend of mine and myself sold it for two months back in the mid 70's. She talked me into it and
we lost money because we were buying everything ourselves. :lol:

@ Micshad I bought a lot of avon in the 70's and I think my grandmother use to buy some back in the
50's and 60's. Later when I worked at a hospital, a friend at work sold it and would come around on the
night shift handing out books, I would always order something from her. I never really liked much of the
Avon products but I did like their pretty cologne bottles. In the 60's I was a 'love's Lemon' girl....loved
that stuff. In the 70's I was a 'Heaven Scent' girl. There was a few avon scents I liked over the years.
One came in a red bottle and I think the name of it was 'Charisma' and then there was one that came in
tall yellow bottle....can't remember the name of it. I bought a lot of their nail polish and roll on's and
some of their lotions, bubble baths, and oils. We use to keep some of the perfume bottles after they
were empty and oh.....they use to make a cream perfume in a jar....remember those? It came in fancy
jars and then later in the 80's I think they changed to calling it a perfume bath cream or some such
that came in color jars. Oh....I think I liked their honeysuckle too! :P

That reminds me and I can't think of the name, of decorator stuff that people would have home
parties....something like 'Home Decor' name or some such. I had a lot of that stuff at one time
all over my walls. Also had some of the figurines. Here again, it was a lady at work that sold it
so I was always ordering from her.

Trying to trace family history is no doubt a big job. I never got very far with it. I did find an old
picture online of my great great grandfather and grandmother on my father's side. He was a
doctor and had a long beard. His wife had a mean look on her face and her waist looked like it
was only 14 inches. :lol:

@Marcel-R6 An ex-husband would collect knifes and watches. It actually made it easy to buy him gifts.

@shadecat Only collect the hard stuff. Spend the paper. To prepare for what might come, take a little of your cash to the bank and exchange it for.... change. Always save your change. I like books too! Oh but decorative tins can take up lots of room. I use to keep my large popcorn tins I would get from walmart at Christmas. I'd fill them with ornaments or other Christmas stuff. I have some smaller cookie tins. I always buy the famous Denmark butter cookies at walmart every Christmas. Well, most every Christmas. The tins are beautiful and I have bought many of the small ones for gifts to the mailman, etc.

@hlrive My best friend I grew up with, up north by Chicago, she is Polish and her parents long since passed were very Polish that lived through the depression. Her father worked at one of the major soap factories, Proctor Gamble or one of those. He brought home lots of products that was made in the factory. I guess they got a big discount and/or some that may have been mislabeled or some what damaged. They always washed their dishes with bar soap. I remember her mother telling her to go to the basement and get some soap. In their basement was lots of long shelves and on the shelves was lots of products. Several containers of lard, shortening (didn't use cooking oils back then), can foods, laundry detergents, bar soap, etc. Not a little. A LOT. I was only 8, 9, 10, 11 years old but I always enjoyed going in their basement to see all the goodies on the shelves. I have not seen my old friend in many years but she never did that. Guess who does? She told me that her parents went through such hard times that they stayed prepared. Fortunately, they never had to live through hard times again but they were certainly prepared for it. Something about that, had a large impact on me. So I do the same. I don't have a basement and I don't have a huge stockpile but if something were to happen and I could not buy food, I probably always have enough on hand to last me 1 to 2 years.
