Their motto used to be, "Hasn't scratched yet," and was shown with a picture of a newly hatched chick.

There used to be a window cleaner called "Bon Ami" that came in a powder.  You mixed it with water to the consistency you preferred, smeared it all over the glass.  It dried white and see-proof.  It was removed with a dry cloth, thus, also removing the dirt.  It would stay on until it was removed.  I used it quite a bit until more easily used products became available.

Thank you all.  It was a good day, topped off by finding this message from the Forum.  I am not very active any more, but I do enjoy the every day happenings of my Forum friends.

On the noon news today it was explained that there needs to be a special election.  The governor has to call the election and he has only a short time in which to do it.  Wish I could remember more of what they said.

I don't believe that a class in government taught in a school setting is the same thing as "Government".  It is perfectly reasonable for a teacher of a government class to want his students to participate in a part of the election process.  There is more than just going to the polls and marking a ballot.  Grade schoolers hold mock elections while high schoolers are old enough to learn about how the candidates get elected.  Sponsoring a forum for a couple of candidates seems like a good way to involve the high school crowd and after all, some of them are old enough to vote.  Besides, a public forum held during daylight hours when older folks are more comfortable in being out, might be just the thing to reach some of the more timid voters.

Mike, I am sorry that I became so rude on your thread, but------enough is enough.  When someone starts repeating himself and blabbering, at my age, I don't have the time to read through all the nonsense.

Ross, shut up and sit down.  You aren't making sense again.

Kaepernick's actions remind me of a Protestant in a Catholic Church.  Even though the Protestant cannot observe the Catholics beliefs, he can respect them.  Many a time I sat while the rest of the church knelt, crossed themselves, etc.  I believe that if you cannot perform the actions of respect and honor, you should at least sit down, shut up and keep quiet and not draw attention to yourself or away from the actions of the believers.

Jarhead, as I was reading the preceding letter, I was thinking, " Boy, Jarhead, you are hitting it right on the head".  Then I come to the bottom and see that the letter is signed by someone that I have not even heard of.  I applaud you for your way of thinking.  I applaud the person who did write the letter.  Anyone who does not see it this way is a know-nothing blowhard.  Thank you, Jarhead.
