If you couldn't post on her topic, you were on her ignore list before she ever posted the topic. The ignore function is available to ALL members, to use at their discretion. Ravelry has a similar function that they have labeled as blocking.

Why is it necessary to call someone out for using a feature of this forum? The feature is used by many members of KP, for a wide variety of reasons.

The owner/administrator of this site is the one who decides how to manage the site. General Chit Chat includes current events, which may be political in nature but in no way are political topics not permitted in this section. You are all free to skip over topics which do not interest you.

If you do not like the features of KP or how KP is run, you are of course free to invest your money and time in creating a forum of your own.

I like beer, and I like tomato juice. I still wouldn't want to mix them! Just like I wouldn't put mustard on ice cream.


Only a small amount of tomato juice is added and sometimes a shake of salt.

I appreciate the information you have taken the time to give me. I also found customer reviews at

https://www.consumeraffairs.com/cable_tv/optimum.html and

https://www.yelp.com/biz/optimum-cable-cablevision-brooklyn

and there were very few in praise of Altice/Optimum.

DH and I talked it over and we will just stay with our FIOS contract until it runs out next May and see whether son-in-law can set us up the way Rockys suggested.

DH is computer illiterate to a great degree and I am not as knowledgeable as I would like to be. But SIL is very up to the minute and a dear about helping us "old folks" when we have tech issues.

As long as DH has his e-mail and can open his established links to a couple of forums he enjoys, he will be happy.

One thing we are not giving up is our hard wired land line, which works when the electricity goes out and never needs charging.

It's not at all difficult to connect a smart TV to the internet to stream video. I used to talk people through the process, over the phone, all the time. Due to high costs, more and more people are dropping their cable and dish subscriptions and opting to use streaming video over internet.

I saw that and had a good laugh! Any estimates on security costs to control the 80,000 people OUTSIDE the arena? Every cop in Orlando is probably praying for rain!

Pedialyte is more effective than Gatorade in maintaining healthy potassium levels, while delivering less carbs than Gatorade.

I've been doing it for years! I call it "speed frogging."

If you think that children do not start training young in other parts of the world or in the U.S., you need to think again. Juan Moreno is an American taekwondo practitioner. He is a three-time Olympian (1988, 1992, 2000) and two-time Olympic silver medalist (1988 and 1992). He began practicing taekwondo before he was 6 years old. Olympic competitors often began their training as small children.

My own son was an Olympic competitor in 2000 (Sydney, AU) and I can tell you that his journey to the Olympics began when he was under the age of 10. This was HIS choice as he selected a sport that neither his father nor I were ever involved in or even urged him to start participating in.

These children do have childhoods, they just don't spend time parked in front of TV or computer screens like so many children do. I saw and still do see the inordinate amount of time that children spend in front of various screens and I also see how obesity in our youth is becoming a growing problem. I'll not be too quick to criticize when a child is doing something they enjoy and which exercises their mind AND body.

I can only hope so.

I sent them another e-mail explaining what good customer service is at my husband’s work place. Maybe that had something to do with it also.

I really do not like contacting a company and telling them their product is very sub-par. But every now and again I just have to. Especially when it was as bad as this product was.


I have no problem contacting a company about an inferior product....on the other hand I have no problem letting a company know when I love their product or service. Glad to hear that you received satisfaction on this.

I have to say that I find people who are completely enamored with ANY president to be a bit concerning. There's not been one president (since I have been an adult) who I have agreed with completely and totally on all issues. In fact, I couldn't name one person who I was always in complete agreement with. To me, that seems unnatural and quite honestly a bit phony. It almost seems like "idol worship." Most people I know, don't wear rose colored glasses when it comes to anyone.

I'm guessing that future poll data will be edited, or skewed to poll only ardent supports, in order to satisfy his brittle ego. Might be a good thing, lulling him into a false sense of security.


Lulling him into a false sense of security? That's where he permanently resides!!

I was thinking if the drone was rising above a shorter building to get to the floors of a taller burning building, would there be a risk of draft sucking the drone to the taller building and crashing it?


There are a multitude of issues to be worked out but cost would probably be the greatest issue. Ladder trucks alone can cost up to $1Million EACH! In the aftermath of 9-11 FDNY had to replace many fire trucks that were destroyed in the collapse of the twin towers. Due to cost, the majority of the destroyed trucks were replaced with used trucks.

The video shows the vehicle rising over cars in traffic...how well does that work when the vehicle has to get past a high truck? I see more problems with this concept than benefits.

WEBS carries various yarns on cones:

As far as I can see only ONE of the coned yarns available through WEBS is Merino and is a lace weight yarn.

Thank you for the link, I haven't seen these before and they are really cute, because I need more patterns, lol.


While their patterns are great for any skill level knitter, they are especially wonderful for novices. I've been knitting for 50+ years but still use their patterns.

thank you!

I checked and the website has stopped selling the patterns!


The Knitting Pure and Simple patterns are available from Ravelry. I was unaware that the Knitting Pure and Simple site was linked to Patternfish, which has stopped selling patterns.
