I cannot stop! Everytime I read about a new "toy", I buy it, and sometimes I am pleased, and sometimes I am not, and return the toy.

So Joe, which F.F.A. meetings did you go to? {Er, "Fry's Freaks Anonymous...”} Which did you prefer—Palo Alto or Fremont?

Fremont always had big bowls of free Habañero Doritos and cases of Jolt Cola—where Palo Alto charged $6 for a double-tall latté. {I alternated, depending on my AmEx-card limit on meeting night.}

Hey Bjarney

I think that the Fry's I visited was in Canoga Park? The store was bigger than a football field!

I always like to browse around and look at the new electronic stuff.

What's it like being retired with nothing to do except read the messages on the boards?

Joe, one problem is not having all the folding money to buy quite as many of those doo-dads.

Find any more classic comments, pictures, or cows who were electrocuted?

Apologies… Sometimes things like habañero doritos cause my fingers to become disconnected from my brain and type things I shouldda’ maybe spent a little more time mulling over.  :/   <g>

There is a town in NorCal called Los Banos, and some tragically hip highway engineer specified signs spelled “Los Baños,” which apparently translates to “the bathrooms.”
