  1. Canada Geese are everywhere, even here in Ga. They hang out at some of the lakes around here. Closest canadian border is Ontario and that's over 900 miles from here. Alberta, my old home is over 2000 miles. They sometimes fly over here in V formation. Dogs just watch 'em and lick their lips.
  2. Last major buy I made several years ago was a Panasonic projector. No bigger than a slide projector and can throw an H D image 12 feet across onto a white wall or screen. These days I don't watch tv much anymore. The news and commercials are even more horrible 12 feet wide. Some of the old remastered Cinerama flicks look good though. Especially the roller coaster ride just 15 feet away from the screen.
  3. Never had a colour set until we moved to Canada. Then we bought one. Never heard of tv rental in North America.
  4. I think sets were less reliable then. If it broke down you just called the company. They would send a repair man who would leave a loaner if he had to take yours into the shop. So you were never without one and no expensive repairs. Always remember a Wigfalls guy who described them as "Wiggy's super service. "
  5. Just thinking. Back in the early days of tv 50/60s it seemed, ln my circles anyway, that most folks rented a set from, Wigfalls, Radio Rentals, Rediffusion etc. Understandable as many cost several weeks wages and about two men to lift 'em. In todays market of big LCD screens, solid state, and relatively light and inexpensive sets do folks still rent a tv or are the rental companies out of business?
  6. Haven't seen a post here I really disagree with. Some crazy fanatics do, unfortunately use it as an excuse to bump off those they don't like. I can honestly say I"ve never met a genuine Baptist (my crowd) who wanted to murder anybody. We just hold 'em down for a long time and drown 'em. On that positive note I'll bow out of this interesting exchange 'cus it is just supposed to be about our day. I'm busy barking, cough and cold.
  7. Main difference is we don't shun those who may differ with us on doctrines that are not central to the faith. Eg. dress codes.
  8. They are not a Christian group no matter what they may say. They have their own version of the Bible in which their translators took some diabolical liberties. They are not as biblically literate as they pretend. Just a few verses twisted to fit their various heresies.
  9. Agree with both the above posts. Had some experience with it over the years. I am not and never have been JW. Disfellowshipping is a powerful weapon against any who dare to disagree. Shunning by closest family has to be potentially emotionally devastating. Certainly not Biblical.
  10. They must do or they would just die out.
  11. Haven't seen anything of Eyeupmeducks for a while. Sent him a couple of e-mails over Christmas and new year. No response. Hoping he's ok. If you read this John geeuz a shout.
  12. We are about twelve miles from Athens.

  14. Hey! I'm Dave. Jake's the Beagle. Dave' s to good a name for a cat.
  15. Happy birthday Nonna. Sorry I missed it too. Probably out watering a tree.
