DeanT - Posted - 03/10/2015:  22:20:30


BioFreeze here!

OM45GE - Posted - 03/12/2015:  03:54:05


What is BioFreeze?

dat - Posted - 03/12/2015:  05:55:13

DeanT - Posted - 03/12/2015:  06:25:36


yep! I should buy stock in the company!

OM45GE - Posted - 03/12/2015:  12:24:15


I'll have to check it out. 

dat - Posted - 03/12/2015:  12:25:18


Watkins Liniment works well too

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/12/2015:  13:10:53


We used to have a Watkins door to door salesman come knocking every couple of months when I was a kid.

DeanT - Posted - 03/12/2015:  13:31:50


I still remember salesmen, from vacuums to carpet cleaners to vitamins to vacations and whatever. The most pushy guy ever was an Amway dude. Heck I still remember the milk man!

dat - Posted - 03/12/2015:  13:38:34


yeah, we had a formost milk man that came by once a week, our house wasn't ever locked, so he came in if nobody was home and put the milk in the fridge

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/12/2015:  14:24:00


Yup, even an iceman who would walk through the kitchen carrying a big block of ice with tongs for our icebox

OM45GE - Posted - 03/12/2015:  15:14:20


We used to have a fruity seller who came around twice a week. He would come in and tell mom what he had on the truck and go back out for what she selected. 

DeanT - Posted - 03/12/2015:  16:37:04


The only salesman I ever remember my parents giving in to, was the Shackle vitamin guy. 

OM45GE - Posted - 03/12/2015:  17:45:53


This guy was from the town  he also had an antiques shop and did watch and clock repair  



 

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/12/2015:  19:02:08


We had a milkman with a horse-drawn wagon when I was a kid. One day I threw a snowball at the wagon when the milkman had walked around to the back of a house ,but missed and hit the horse. The horse at that moment started up the street ,,I got scared that he'd keep right on going so I ran into the house,peeking around the edge of the window curtain. Well, the milkman had trained him to move up a few houses ,because he would deliver along the back doors through the back lawns, and reappear at the street farther up.

DeanT - Posted - 03/12/2015:  22:26:43


we had people ride horses through town... but no milk wagon...

OM45GE - Posted - 03/13/2015:  02:55:37


We also had home deliver of cloth diapers. My parents had six kids so there were a lot of diapers. It was called the Tidy Didy Diaper Service. Mom would put the dirty diapers in a cloth bag inside a hamper (both of which came as part of the service). Once a week the diaper guy would bring laundered diapers and take away the dirty ones. Talk about a crappy job.

DeanT - Posted - 03/13/2015:  06:18:12


When I was a kid, all the cars were classics... I just didn't know it yet...



I forgot about cloth diapers... wow, so archaic! 

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/13/2015:  06:37:57


I might be back to wearing them - probably get nostalgic when I'm in my nineties

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 03/13/2015:  09:26:49


I worked for a woman who got a lot of COD deliveries.  The UPS guy would go into the house and, if no one was there, he'd grab the checkbook off the kitchen table and bring it down to the barn so one of us could forge a check for him.



I was thinking the other day about the Fuller Brush man who would come with his suitcase full of products.

dat - Posted - 03/13/2015:  11:53:38


checks now a days, it really doesn't matter, a check by phone or over the computer is just a routing number and account number, no signatures needed to forge

DeanT - Posted - 03/13/2015:  16:10:21


wow, I can't even remember the last time I wrote a check!

dat - Posted - 03/14/2015:  07:33:45


I write three a month, water lights and house ,   I could do that online, but I just don't like to

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/14/2015:  08:00:08


Nope, don't like banking info put on line - just don't trust it. My credit card gets hacked into once in a while.

OM45GE - Posted - 03/14/2015:  08:51:16


I feel safer paying electronically than by check. 

dat - Posted - 03/14/2015:  09:24:52


Either way you're screwed if somebody hacks in, you can get it worked out but you still have the headaches

DeanT - Posted - 03/14/2015:  17:00:43


I gave in and do everything on line now

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 03/14/2015:  18:28:53


I pay George's board with a check, and when I have a petsitter for the cats I use a check.  But that's about it.



A couple years ago my dad was writing checks for his bills (he's old school) and he wrote a check for the mortgage but realized he didn't have any stamps so he put it back in the checkbook.  Then a couple days later my mom was getting ready for church.  She tithes with a check, so she grabbed the checkbook and wrote a check.  Then she got the church envelope and she picked up the checkbook and pulled out the first check she found, which was the $800 mortgage check.  The church cashed it. No one (not the church or the bank) noticed that the check was made out to someone else.



Luckily my parents aren't hurting for money.  I mean Dad was not amused that he had to move some money around to come up with an extra $800 that month, but they had it in savings.  Mom had to tell the church that she wouldn't be giving them any more money for several months until it had all balanced out.

 Recently some hackers got into the system of a health insurer in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. They weren't our insurance carrier but apparently they had data from patients who visited physicians who billed through them. They got including names, addresses, dates of birth, social security numbers, pretty much all you need to steal identities.

At least the electric company didn't get a check made out to the First Baptist Church...

dat - Posted - 03/18/2015:  07:26:16


I don't write checks to the church, I do that with cash.   I know you get tax deductions for church donations/ tithes, but to me it should be made without expecting something back.     so it's cash with no names attached in the plate fer me

DeanT - Posted - 03/18/2015:  12:11:46


Your pastor isn't begging for enough to get a new jet is he?

dat - Posted - 03/18/2015:  13:17:18


his salary is paid, any extra goes to the building and used through the community somewhere, or his vacations/ jet ski/ bass boat , I'm not real sure about it all, but he doesn't live an extravagant lifestyle while he is in town

DeanT - Posted - 03/18/2015:  15:58:22


There was a TV preacher in the news asking everyone to give $300 so he could buy a new jet. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/18/2015:  16:56:08


Why didn't he just pray to find a gold mine? 😉

DeanT - Posted - 03/18/2015:  22:25:21


His followers are his gold mine!

dat - Posted - 03/19/2015:  08:25:20


many times that is true

DeanT - Posted - 03/19/2015:  13:37:21


some of them TV churches look like stadiums

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/19/2015:  14:56:25


Yep, - spiritual materialism

DeanT - Posted - 03/19/2015:  22:38:26


I wish the ones that do healing miracles would go to the local hospital and cure everyone

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/19/2015:  23:15:56


There's no money in that

OM45GE - Posted - 03/20/2015:  03:49:19


Do you know the joke to the punch line, "F f f f f fred f f f f f f fell down? 

dat - Posted - 03/20/2015:  05:56:41


Haven't heard that one

DeanT - Posted - 03/20/2015:  07:10:33


Nope, not a clue...

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 03/20/2015:  08:45:43


We've got some massive churches in this area.  I drove by one last night that has a parking garage.  Unreal.


chuckv97 - Posted - 03/20/2015:  09:00:39


Pretty soon they'll have gated churches

dat - Posted - 03/20/2015:  10:16:42


gated , and a paid membership,     



 



when I first read 'Niffers post, I thought she wrote a parking garage and a urinal,   many places I've been I wished they had one in the parking lot

DeanT - Posted - 03/20/2015:  12:11:28


A news story yesterday reported a Catholic church in California that turned their sprinklers on at night to keep homeless people off their property.

OM45GE - Posted - 03/20/2015:  18:45:51


The joke is about a faith healer at a revival who asked for folks with afflictions to come forward. A man named Fred hobbled up on crutches and said he hadn't been able to walk since he was injured as a boy. A man named John came up and explained that he had stuttered badly his entire life. The healer told them to go behind a curtain, prayed loudly for several minutes and then told Fred to throw out his crutch from behind the curtain. The audience gasped when the crutches were tossed out. He then commanded John to speak out I a loud clear voice. He said "Ffffffffred ffffffffell ddddddddddown."
