According to the website of the NY Daily News: “A 24-year-old mother is in custody after her two young children were found barefoot, dirty and living in a wooden shipping crate in an underground cave on the eastern edge of Kansas City, Mo.” This is, of course, a terrible way to treat children. Still, I must have missed something. What kind of cave isn’t underground?
Hungary doesn’t want refugees from the Middle East and the refugees just want to pass through to get to Germany. I know you’re supposed to register when you enter an EU country, but still why is Hungary keeping the refugees from leaving?
Every time I buy medicine at my local CVS drug store, they ask me for my date of birth. Is it too much for me to expect them to send me a birthday card?
Do you know what a TPMS warning light is, or what it’s warning you about? It’s a system in all late model cars that tells you if the tires are under-inflated. If it comes on, you should check the tires, inflate them if necessary and get the system serviced. It doesn’t bother me if you don’t know that, but the one in my truck is on. It was on for two months and I’ve repeatedly checked the tire pressure. It’s fine, so I called the dealer. What bothers me is the woman who answered the phone in the service depart didn’t know what it is. The other things that bother me are I had it fixed, two months later, it broke again, and these things cost a lot more than a tire gauge.
Prince William is bald. Kate isn’t. Why don’t they make him wear the silly hats?
Have you ever installed a new electric box and found the hole in the drywall was too large for the box to fit snugly? I didn’t do that, but the electrician I hired did, and hid it. The outlet is seldom used so it’s long past the time when any complaint would seem legitimate. There are two kinds of electric boxes: new work boxes are attached to the studs before the wall board or paneling is installed; and old-work boxes fit in a hole in wall and use ears on the outside and little, moveable tabs on the inside of the wall to keep the box in place. If the hole for a new work box is too big, you can buy an over-sized cover plate. If the hole for an old-work box is too big, they don’t make a box with bigger ears and tabs. You have to fix the wallboard.
How do you make the hole for an old-work box too big anyway? You don’t measure them. You hold a box up to the wall and trace around it with a pencil. Then, you cut along the lines. Maybe that’s why they don’t make an box with big ears and tabs to fix it.
