    DuBois Mall is in a Receivership Sale

    Makes sense and actually the Kinetics group that wrapped there did provide insurance although I was told that the $300 fee was waived.

    Question

    You know your own habits. Think. Where do you put this type of thing? That is the way I find things. If a checkbook isn't in my purse there are only a couple of other places where I would put it and a lot of places that I would never put it.
  4. Wonder if they wore their SWAT gear? Little old ladies can be tough.
  5. The only people who hunt here with permission are friends and I know they have been hunting all of their lives. The rest are out there without my knowledge and I don't have a clue as to whether they would shoot at a glimpse of movement or not. No one asks. In the past I've had them walk across the yard within yards of the house riling up the dog and making me fear that they would shoot him. And I won't mention the snowmobilers. It is the entitlement attitude that is bothersome. Do they not realize that we live here out of choice but that without neighbors within shouting distance we are a bit leery of strangers with or without guns? We too are armed and are trying to be sensible. There is one sane hunter out there who got lost. He had the sense to stand a considerable distance from the house and sent his son to ask directions. if everyone were as courteous and sensible maybe all the land around here wouldn't be posted.
  6. It's all about the money just like everything else. If the Game Commission thinks it can make a few dollars more Sunday hunting will become legal. We live in the middle of the woods and have some of the only unposted land around. It isn't safe outside as long as there is anyone in the woods with a gun.I don't know them and their competency with a weapon. I hated letting the dog out in the yard let alone the kid during hunting season. (It was harder on the dog than the kid.) I know the deer have to be culled and I have no objection to hunting (I also like venison) but I also think that people who want one day a week to enjoy nature shouldn't have to risk their lives to do so. It is interesting that every time we extend the rights of one group we seem to curtail the rights of another.
  7. I got one the other day that purported to be from someone I haven't heard from in years. It started out saying "contact me, I need a favor." I emailed back thinking the email was genuine and she did indeed need some help. I got the gift card request. At that point I knew it was a scam. I warned her and emailed the sender that I was reporting it. So beware of requests from what appear to be actual friends as well.
  8. People seem to see our PA mountain lions all the time coming over the mountain. I don't know what goes on up there. Maybe Bigfoot keeps them as house cats. Or something. As for news reports reporters seem to have gotten terribly lazy getting the facts. They all seem to make them, up avoid them at all costs or embellish them so they can sell more papers or get more hits. I'd prefer seeing the corpse and official cause of death but I'm odd that way.
  9. That's because you don't want to kill the mean house cat and you know it can't kill you. There are innumerable accounts of men killing various types of cats without weapons when attacked. They usually involve using superior weight to pin the animal on its back and then cutting off the air supply. Shoving an arm down its throat seems to be the most common (ouch!) but a forearm across the throat comes a close second. In fact a woman in Georgia strangled a rabid bobcat not too long ago. Her comment was something like don't let them get their teeth near your throat. I guess that is why the arm down the throat. Hope you never need the info but now you know how it is done should one of those mountain lions that the Game Commission introduced ever show up angry.

    Trouble in Punxsy!!

    Eating your problem is always a good solution. It works with varmints and weeds. Now if we could just find a way to apply it to politics. Hmmm?

    Warming Centers

    How exactly does a "warming center" work? Is it a short term thing where people go for a few hours or is it something where people are picked up and transported when they appear to be in danger? How is it staffed? Are other services provided like food? This sounds more complicated than stop in for a few hours.
  15. Makes you wonder doesn't it?
