    Why is it that when you finally get all the issues with your pool settled the end of swim season is only a month away? And... why is something you only need every 7 years so out of stock this long after the pandemic is no longer one? Ex: Chlorine generator cell for a saltwater pool. ( See above )

    Crank, That works if there is a cluster of members within easy driving distance from some common spot. I believe the closest to me are one member in the mountains south of me and Tom all the way in Lost Wages.

    Vin Scully dies at 94. Voice of baseball to many...

    Vin died on Tuesday, I believe, at 94. Maybe it's because I grew up in the LA radio broadcast area, Vin was the voice of baseball. He also broadcast football for a while. Anyone recall " The Catch" for the 49s ? That was Vin too. Who partnered with a rookie John Madden to show him how to...

    My mom musta dropped me on my head

    Cynthia, "Will the beak grow back?" I don't think so. I was worried that he wouldn't be able to eat as well because they bite off chunks of stuff with the hard edge of their beak, but he just leaves grooves as he bites now, but seems to get enough grass and weeds and what ever he finds.

    "You can move an 87 pound tortoise?" Carefully? As I mentioned, I can't just grab him by his scoots ( where the legs come out. ) without stout gloves anymore. I have to just grab by his sides and and move in short bursts. Sometimes we coax him with food instead. That isn't a quick process.

    My mom musta dropped me on my head

    I just walked out and took a picture. My wife put her shoe on him for scale. If you notice where the grass is poking out of his mouth, you see his beak is notched. He did that this year. We don't know what he tried to bite, but it broke the center point out and left him with a gap...

    My mom musta dropped me on my head

    "Tortoises? Sulcata I bet?" California Desert tortoise, a scattering of Russians, one Herman's , another young Desert tortoise, and yes..a Sulcata. All 87 lbs of him and still growing. We've had the sucker since he fit in the palm of my wife's hand and he still doesn't like being touched...
