The Hints Book Almanac (Book) - 12/9/2011 2:01:06 PM
Is it cross referenced with a problem? For example, page 285. One use for this particular product is recharging a dead auto battery, which may or may not be listed in your publication. Asking the problem in reverse, I have a dead battery what shall I do? Oh, see page 285. Just curious. pg

The Hints Book Almanac (Book) - 12/9/2011 10:06:58 AM
My sweetie and I had been saving “helpful hints” for years, each of us totally unaware that the other had been doing the same thing, until it came up in conversation. It was apparent that we each had the same concern, “How do you find the one you’re looking for, when you really need it?” That led to our decision to merge our “hints” files together and subsequently, to organizing them into a more functional format. During that process research continued in an effort to accumulate the most complete listing available anywhere. Then we decided that if locating a needed hint had been a problem for us, it likely was a concern for many others as well. With that realization, the idea for this book was born and the quest to creat a comprehensive index was begun. We believe the book will become a most treasured reference manual in a very large percentage of American homes.

A truly riveting book that is close to impossible to put down. From the beautiful cover to the last word, each piece of work is total entertainment. Donna

Dick, I love, love, love the cover of your new book!! The chapters sound not only interesting, but if I know you, they will be pithy in content with a wide variety of feelings and emotions. I wish you MUCH success on the sale of your book. I am in your corner... cheering for you. Joy L. Hale

GREAT WRITE!! I often use my elbows to push through restroom doors and kick the flush gizmo...though it is getting harder. [Tellya my age, but I'd hafta send cuz's Entny & Mick t'tune ya up.] Guess you know soap collects germs. Scary world out there!! Thanks for the fun -- if frightening -- read. HAPPY NEW YEAR ANYWAY!!! :)xOx Phyllis xOx :)

Bathroom Door Knob Phobia (Short Story) - 1/17/2011 3:53:09 PM
Richard, I wish I could say that your observations come as a surprise to me, but there's a perfectly sound reason why the men's line moves faster than the lady's line. I always wash, but I've often seen my hubby leave our bathroom without washing, though he always washes before handling our food. Yet, he washes when in public places. Odd, as far as I'm concerned. I was a huge germ phobe as a kid. If I even touched the carpet in the house I would wash my hands. Then my parents got me a Basset Hound, and I was changed forever. Now I'm much more reasonable about when/how often to wash. The part about using the paper towel to open the door is spot on. I do the same thing. The most disgusting moment I had recently was in the local Chinese restaurant. I ordered to go and then went to use the restroom. As I was going in, an employee was coming out. When I got to the stall, there was no TP. I had to leave the stall and get a paper towel, so I'd have something to wipe with. (Thankfully I had noticed before doing my deed!) Meanwhile, the room stunk, so I was holding my breath the whole time. The girl never came back in with supplies, though she HAD to have known there was no TP. I was tempted to cancel my order. This week I drove by and they have a 'closed' sign on their door. Gosh...I wonder why? Seriously, a public bathroom probably won't shine like gold, but if a restaurant can't send someone to clean and supply regularly, what else are they doing wrong? Is the chicken really rat? (That Chinese restaurant was actually shut down in the 80's for serving pigeon and roadkill instead of chicken. I kid you not. It was later re-opened with new owners and a green light from inspectors.) My vote is that most women wash. Seems it should be the other way around, because at least women have the TP between their hand and the part being wiped. We never even touch the gear:) I use my foot to flush ALWAYS, unless it's one of those nifty instant flushers. And I carry a portable Germ-X for when I want to wash, but can't, like when I fish in the summer & there's a porta potty. Keep washing, my friend! Sheila

Bathroom Door Knob Phobia (Short Story) - 8/12/2010 10:55:09 AM
Reading this made me wonder. I must be from another planet. I recall when we were kids, we played in the dirt outside the shack we lived in. I also got a lot of childhood diseases, mostly spread through the air because I never touched anyone with measles in a winter environment that was guaranteed to make membranes dry and everyone dehydrated. I do recall everyone being deathly afraid of swimming in August because of polio. Or after eating, for that matter. Something called the cramps that I never got. I guess you would have had traveled the world like I and had to wade through urine and feces in the Cairo airport to free Willie. Or eat in sidewalk restaurants with kitchens swarming with roaches and restrooms unimaginably dirty without any paper and dogs and cats begging beneath your feet. Or walking up narrow streets with the middle of the street as the sewer. We were born to microbes, live with microbes, and will die with microbes. After all I've expose myself to, I'm perfectly healthy, and, as far as I know am not carrying any parasites around in my body because of all my adventures in wild, filthy places. We have a wonderful immune system, and, as long as it's working, most of our phobias are just that. Ron

A timely write, Richard; well done! Know how you feel: some of those bathrooms/door knobs, etc. can be downright NASty! Thanks for your review on my story; appreciate it so much! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :)

Cute tail of woe about your cooking expertise. Thanks for the chuckle.

Bathroom Door Knob Phobia (Short Story) - 5/20/2010 4:35:29 AM
While I totally agree with you that everyone needs to wash their hands; even men who think that their willie is a God to be cherished, washed or not, your thought that they might set-up potty police brings to mind the no smoking in public places and how they have cracked down so hard on smokers. They can't seem to do anything about drug pushers or the use of drugs to any degree but they sure can bring the hammer down on smokers. I'm not a smoker myself and never have been but the way they have inforced the no smoking policy on others is disgusting to me. I hope your potty police thing doesn't catch on too. However, I do wash my hands and most women do.

Cooking Skills (Short Story) - 5/1/2010 5:36:22 AM
Dick, freezing eggs? never tried it, although if the freezer goes out on you, it may raise a stink. Cooking is fun, mostly the learning how to prepare this or that, but like writing, it takes lots of practice. I enjoyed your story. Cheers, Dan

Cooking Skills (Short Story) - 4/30/2010 4:53:07 PM
Too funny! It's a wonder you haven't starved to death by now! And no, I don't think I've ever eaten a frozen egg. Donna

Uh, boring to say the least. Not fer me. A few "lady friends" have tried to interest me in that venue, and I last about twenty minutes (and that is stretching it) before I started bellowing to go. If bellowing didn't get the job done I would start whining.

Lousy Tippers, Stay Home! (Article) - 6/17/2012 3:57:22 PM
Thank you! Thank you! I waitressed for over twenty years and raised two children without any help from anyone not even their father. I didn't believe in child support as I figure that before a divorce the one who takes the children should accept that responsibility. Anyhow, I would work 6 doubles a week and would pamper my customers remembering what they drank, what dressings they wanted, etc.. They would never have to ask me for a refill because I would scan my tables checking out their glasses so I could be there before they could ask with a free refill or aske if they wanted another cocktail. People don't see the back of the house and what really goes on. It's a madhouse but waitresses emerge smiling. Thank you for bringing about awareness!! Love ya! Jane

A Standing Ovation (Article) - 5/31/2012 10:36:59 AM
You worry too much. I prefer the sitting "O," as in "On my ass" It gets to be a problem at concerts because then I have to stand up to see what's going on making me cranky. That's why it should say on your ticket, no curmudgeons allowed. Of course that's merely about entertainment where emotions and fun combine. Then of course you can watch a presidential speech regardless of who is in office to learn a standing O is more political than respectful. It's hard to argue against the merits of a standing O for anybody volunteering to protect my sorry ass. Patrick

A Standing Ovation (Article) - 5/26/2012 5:55:54 AM
I know exactly how your feel and couldn't agree more. Donna

A Standing Ovation (Article) - 5/25/2012 11:48:37 AM
Everybody in the country deserves a standing O. I mean everybody in this country is brilliant. That deserves a standing O, don't you think? Oh, you wonder how I can say everyone in this country is brilliant? Simple. By all the bumper stickers on cars these days proclaiming their child is an honor student, or their grandchild is an honor student, it stands to reason everyone in America is brilliant. Personally, in today's political climate I am surprised that the school bothered to even recognize those who had enlisted in the service of our country. More surprised that they received a standing O.

Wanderin Man - 12 – Slowin Down (Poetry) - 7/19/2012 11:39:09 AM
These verses I find expansively satisfying. What makes them that for me is the 'casual elegance' of such blatant honesty in the character's voice. It grits with a naked kind of appreciation. Lyrical, balladish, chaps-smacking-fun honesty comes off these lines from this character's telling of his tale. Thanks for the journey ~~ Diana

Dick, very well appointed piece, I will have to add my agreement with those who do not think war will cease to exist for long after we all are forgotten..it is too bad, but man has not yet attained that which will allow that to occure. Budd

A Military Man - (He's Still Standing) (Poetry) - 7/1/2012 1:51:16 PM
Sadly I think there will always be terrible men or groups of men who will seek to dominate others, also it is sad that the only real response they understand is a greater power. You describe a soldier's life well and I salute all who fight in the name of freedom...from the young boy in the school yard who steps in between a bully and a victim to the soldiers who know that they must kill or be killed to win freedom for all. fee

A Military Man - (He's Still Standing) (Poetry) - 7/1/2012 7:03:44 AM
Thanks for picking up on my title. This is a wonderful tribute to the men in the trenches who have to fight face to face. Unfortunately, war has become more and more remote with large kill zones and avatars doing the killing. The foot soldier used to fight. Now the foot soldier is told to remediate, something that is contrary to the warrior who blindly kills his foe because he hates them. Unlike Jerry, I believe that wars on the wane, and police action will eventually take over for wars. Ron

A Military Man - (He's Still Standing) (Poetry) - 7/1/2012 6:45:14 AM
It is never going to happen, my friend. We will always be at war, at least in the foreseeable future. If we were to understand our enemies and quit acting like they aren't our enemies maybe then we can confront them and actually win a war. It has been a long time since we have won a war, World War II. It's time to grit up and do what has to be done.

Fractured Fables #11 - Mother Goose (Poetry) - 6/17/2012 8:15:14 AM
Porny that's for sure! That was a good laugh. When you wrote about Mother Goose being loose, it got me thinking about an old story: Errol Flynn was a rascal all his life. As a teenager, he learned that ducks were loose. So, he tied a piece of greasy bacon to a string, and fed it to one duck after another until he had several ducks strung together. What kind of a Mother Goose rhyme to make of that? Ron

It's usually best to cross a bridge and leave it unburned. You never know when you'll have to retreat. There's a kid down the block that drives a low rider pickup with "Life Unscripted" painted boldly on it. He dresses like a hooligan and looks like one. Can't be all bad though he works at the local Petsmart and when in uniform looks pretty normal. I know...book and cover. If you want a photo of the truck for your poem I can take one. Patrick

I would never watch something called “Smash” because it implies that it is. And that means that it probably is not. I can't think of anything duller than a TV argument like the ones I see on “ Survivor” and “The Amazing Race.” Frankly, I could do without all the arguing that goes on, but I guess a certain segment of the audience wants to see it. If the arguments were taken out, I think the shows would be a lot better. Ron
