  1. Thanks again. Now the issue is how do you tell someone that the ideas she has are wrong. She has never accepted advice from me. Maybe I should have one of you guys contact her. No, actually I wouldn't do that to anyone.
  2. Thanks, that is exactly what is needed. But of course my mom wouldn't let me look at the chairs tonight so that's that.
  3. The legs are fairly long/wide rectangular and so I don't see this type of thing working. What I would really like would be some sort of device that had the shaft but a flat piece of plastic rather than the casters. But I've never seen anything like that.
  4. Mom just got wooden flooring installed in her kitchen. The chairs she has have casters, the ones with the shaft that gets inserted into the sleeve on the bottom of the leg. We'd like to get something was just a flat piece that wouldn't move so easily. Concern is that the 93-year-old will take a tumble if the chairs moves as she sits down.
  5. Nope. It has been going on long enough to avoid that.
  6. We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost. Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another. Any ideas? Thanks for your time. Tom

  8. I took part in a tourney out west last Saturday. At the bar during the pay out I was surprised at the number of young people involved. There seemed to be at least 25% of the crowd that looked under 25 and one table full that clearly were under 21 (no beers). Is this typical? I keep reading about the increased age of hunters so I wonder if the coyote thing is an oddity.
  9. A friend was out today and hooked a couple northern and had a decent muskie on. He was concerned about the hook type and positioning when using large sucker minnows. He is C&R and wants to limit the risk to the fish. Can you share some ideas please. Thanks for your time. Tom
  10. The ant moat idea seems interesting. Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan. Use that and see how things work out.
  11. Thanks for the tip. Ends up the batteries were too low to allow the backlight to work. I have been using it plugged in in the truck and so I never thought about the batteries.
  12. BobT I remember when you got yours. I use the Basecamp software and was hoping I could update it. The backlight doesn't work and so it is hard to use. Maybe I need to check and see if there is a way to get it to work.
  13. Thanks for the info. I still use a flip phone and about the only use it gets is when the alarm goes off to remind me to take my meds. The article was useful. I was always wondering how a phone would know where you are if you are out of range of cell towers. Anyone have any info on how well the phone works as a GPS device? I was on a trip to DC and we took the back roads home. My companion had an IPad and an IPhone that he had bought together along with their mapping software. We managed to get turned around about 3 times and I was ready to toss them out the window. Could have been operator error but it was very frustrating. No place West Virginia at 10 p.m. is a heck of a time for a rig that tells you to turn down a road that dead ends in a ravine 75 feet later.
  14. I am starting to consider getting a new handheld GPS. I have a Garmin 78s and it is at least 5 years old. I like Garmin products and have the Basecamp software. I would like to buy something that is a relatively new product so that it has some life in terms of support. The touch screen, bue tooth and music and all that other stuff isn't important - I want a rig to show me where I am and let me figure out how to get someplace else. Seems like the Etrex, Oregon and Montana are names I recognize from a search at least 2 years ago. What's new?
  15. That's what I had to do to get the tire off. Not the type of thing you're likely to have handy when you get a flat away from home.
