  1. Also referred to as the G. I. Generation In Strauss & Howe's book, "The Fourth Turning" that generation was born between 1901-1924. The Lost Generation between 1883 and 1900. The Silents from 1925-1942 Boomers from 1943-1960 Take your pick since generation theory is still just that, theory.
  2. It has been thus for time immemorial and will be for the foreseeable future. Sorry about your friends.
  3. One other reality about a pool. There will come a time when you take your water in to be correctly tested by the pool chemicals place that you will be told you need to drain the pool and start with fresh water. "What, you can't sell me some chemicals to burn out whatever it is?" "No". "Why not, what's the problem"? Depending on the tact of the person you're dealing with, at some point you'll realize you're being told there's too much urine in your water and you need to start over. Remember, not you or any of your guests would ever pee in the pool. Must be some neighborhood young people using it when you're not home, LOL.
  4. Why would they be a "fool" if they are willing to pay for something? If they earned the money why should someone else tell them how they are allowed to spend it? Don't you just "live and let live"?
  5. Can't argue with that, but...what I said was the original intention. The Robin Hood solution.
  6. No good alternatives other than solar. DAC is there for a reason...so you subsidize poor folks in the first and second tiers of CFE rates. After having our own pools for many years using a public pool just didn't work for us. Let the shaming begin, LOL. We just bit the bullet and paid. YMMV
  7. As CG said Win 7 will continue to work tomorrow just like it did yesterday. They just won't be issuing any security patches for any vulnerabilities they find which usually also apply to Win 8 and 10. Large organizations that don't want to upgrade can pay for continuing updates but not for individuals. The "average" user probably has nothing to worry about as the bad guys don't usually bother going after them. If you are nervous your only options are to go to 10 or switch to Apple, Chromebooks or perhaps Ubuntu. Given the average life expectancy of many of us it probably makes little sense to upgrade. If you're in your 30's you should probably bite the bullet and do it.
  8. Interesting, thanks for sharing. So what brought you back, especially since your comment about 20-30 yo's?
  9. ...But where is it in relation to the Oxxo?
  10. Meaning it's not life or death...For those of you in Rio Linda.
  11. Haha, it's all in good fun here. If just one person had disagreed with the OP and posted a positive review perhaps more would have done so and effectively cancelled out the one bad. But no...it was a pig pile on the OP for daring to say his opinion, which was the performance was not really good. We're not talking about criticizing a 6th grade play here. All adults and he paid good money, which regardless where it went, was not just a solicitation of a donation. I simply felt, and still do, that he was being shamed for daring to post such an opinion. Nothing more and nothing less. I obviously didn't attend and have never been near the Auditorio and don't usually agree with the OP on most things but felt someone needed to stick up for the principle. We now return you to our regularly scheduled programs.
  12. Perhaps like hotels/BnB's, real estate sales they expect their target market to be those same folks. I dunno.
  13. Agree or disagree...I always enjoy your posts. I personally did not think the OP mocked or sneered at anyone. He did give a detailed negative review. If giving a negative review is "going out of one's way" there are a lot of critics that are in deep do-do. Some people also regard giving only winners trophies rather than for "participation" is a no-no, but not me. Regards Pappy
  14. The OP can't be THAT bad. He said he would have kicked in the $300 P for a raffle ticket rather than sitting through the performance. The prevalence of political correctness has resulted in people's skin becoming thinner and thinner. Mine is not, I don't take it personally whatever anyone says about my opinion. YMMV
