  1. I'm late for the party as usual but one image comes to mind-
  2. Yes, this De-Con commercial is a bit twisted, but it made me laugh: https://www.ispot.tv/ad/oXDx/d-con-refillable-bait-station-mice-love-it-to-death
  3. Agree 1000 percent! Most commercials make me grab for the remote and hit Mute, but I LOVE Mayhem and his Billion Years of Tiger DNA. Not only don't I hit the Mute button, but I actually turn up the volume, AND I remember what company he's advertising, which is ideally what a good commercial should do. Almost all of the Mayhem commercials have been good, but this one is at the top of the list. I hope they get some kind of advertising industry award for this one. Not only would that help make up for those brainless "focus group" ads from Chevy's ad agency that we've been suffering through for the last - what? - five or six years at least - but it would also mean that we'll have even more chances to watch Mayhem ride through the room on a Roomba. Cracks me up every time. BTW, can anyone see what he drops on the sleeping husband? I really hope it's a mouse.
  4. Here's a general description of what's covered: https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2019/recall-094-2019-release "WASHINGTON, Sept. 28, 2019 – Tip Top Poultry, Inc, a Rockmart, Ga., establishment, is recalling an undetermined amount of ready-to-eat (RTE) poultry products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The frozen cooked, diced or shredded, RTE chicken products were produced between January 21, 2019 and September 24, 2019. The products subject to recall can be found in this spreadsheet. [View labels (PDF only)]. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “Est. P-17453” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to institutions nationwide in the United States and Canada..." There are some items in the list made for long-term storage so anyone who bought food products containing chicken or chicken products for emergencies, travel, camping, etc since the beginning of 2019 needs to check their supplies. Thanks for the warning.
  5. I don't know if this was posted before or not but the Comcast forum makes interesting reading. It really blew up yesterday when a LOT of customers myself included, found that TCM was actually gone. Chicago is obviously in the Central Division. https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Channels-and-Programming/WHY-IS-COMCAST-CHANGING-TURNER-CLASSIC-MOVIES-TO-SPORTS/td-p/3256093 Several bits of irony that add insult to injury... at the top of each page right before the title of the thread, Comcast has added the word SOLVED. NO, you S'sOB's, it's not solved. It's just ignored which is Comcast's way of "managing" cutomer complaints. Bastards. The thread includes a reply from a Comcast employee from September 6: ComcastAlly ComcastAlly Official Employee ‎09-06-2019 01:13 PM Re: WHY IS COMCAST CHANGING TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES TO SPORTS PACKAGE IN OCTOBER? Hello, xxxxx. Thank you for reaching out. Every month, Comcast pays programmers like networks, local TV station owners and others, for the ability to bring their programming to you. We regularly review our programming and sometimes make changes to ensure we're offering a wide variety of programming at the best value. We look at a variety of factors, including customer viewership and programming costs when making these decisions. Viewership of TCM is low, as over 90% of our customers watch less than two movies per month. Given this and contractual limitations on offering TCM a la carte, we decided to move TCM to the Sports Entertainment Package, which will help us manage programming costs that are passed on to our customers while continuing to make the channel available to those who want to watch it. I am an Official Comcast Employee. Official Employees are from multiple teams within Comcast: CARE, Product, Leadership. We ask that you post publicly so people with similar questions may benefit from the conversation. Was your question answered? Mark the post as Best Answer! And just added some time today: We sincerely appreciate all the feedback we have received in regards to this change. This thread has now been locked from receiving new replies. (bolding is mine) Way to go, Comcast Cowards. When questions and comments become embarrassing, lock the thread. That's also led tocomments in different threads by other posters. FrustratedViewr New Poster ‎10-11-2019 02:16 PM TCM move to Sports Package Well, they have locked the thread about TCM moving to the Sports Package. I guess to Xfinity, they think that the issue has been resolved. Maybe an email to their Chief Customer Experience Office might get better attention to this. Primary Contact Charlie Herrin Chief Customer Experience Office 1701 JFK Blvd Comcast Center Philadelphia, PA 19103 Charlie_Herrin@Comcast.com and ‎10-11-2019 05:10 PM COMCAST HAS LOCKED THE TCM THREAD YES, Comcast has locked the thread about "CHANGING TCM" so that no additional comments can be posted. I tried to post on another thread, and that thread disappeared while I was typing. Then I started a new thread to post a message, and, in less than 1 hour, that thread is GONE. There was nothing offensive in there that should have required removal. Therefore, I will post it again. We'll see how long it lasts. What's wrong Comcast, don't like what you're seeing and hearing??? Well, we don't like what you're doing. So now we're even. GET USED TO IT!! Time to consider my options.
  6. So there IS something in her wardrobe besides white pants! She does look nice, and I love the dress! The lady looks half the age of that bored frustrated depressed woman of the same name that we remember. I'm glad to see the Q didn't poison her permanently.
  7. Yep, the Darwin Awards will never die from lack of contestants as long as those idiots think that they're immune from the consequences of their own stupidity. I always like it when the animal wins. Like this one: "Focus On The Bear" https://darwinawards.com/darwin/darwin2018-17.html and I love happy endings! "... According to media reports, once the body was retrieved, forest officials treated the bear for its injuries. The dog, although probably still disgusted, was unharmed." https://darwinawards.com/
  8. Trevor Noah has been including "... and President Trump is being impeached" to his list of the day's news headlines almost every day on his show, and it always gets an ecstatic reaction from the audience. Maybe Rachel has the same gut reaction - saying it just makes her feel good. It makes ME feel good too, so Rachel can say it as often as she likes.
  9. Still not working for me either.
  10. Anyone who has Ovation on their Comcast system should be able to catch 3 full episodes every Thursday morning, starting at 8AM Eastern, 7AM Central. They're repeating some of the early seasons and just re-ran Series 4's Garden of Death (with Neil Dudgeon as a horny gardener!) and Destroying Angel for at least the second time. Each episode runs 2 1/2 hours with commercials. Ovation MAY be fiddling around with the schedule so check your cable listings, mine from TitanTV are showing 2 new time slots this Sunday AM and one less 2 1/2 hour episode on Thursday AM. Don't say I didn't warn you. PBS Prime is showing more recent episodes on Thursday night as a sort of mystery package, 45-plus minutes (but a full 1-hour timeslot) on 2 consecutive Thursdays starting at 7PM Central, followed by Miss Fisher and Agatha Raisin. They took us up to Season 14 a while back and introduced Neil Dudgeon as Tom B's replacement and then dropped back a few seasons. Last week was "The Glitch" listed as Episode 4 of Season 12 at Wiki's list of seasons and episodes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Midsomer_Murders_episodes "Small Mercies" with the murder in the little model village should be next. PBS Prime also does Father Brown, Shakespeare and Hathaway, and Death In Paradise on Wednesdays, same time slot. Midsomer Murders repeats (all times Central) Friday at midnight and later Friday morning at 9AM, and Sunday afternoon at 2PM, also on PBS Prime. There's nothing like a nice cuppa, a quaint English village, and a few of its more colorful residents stuffed down wells or impaled on pitchforks. Rule Britannia!
  11. I'm SO glad I'm not the only one who thought it was a little over the top for a weather broadcast! All that was missing was a veil and a bouquet (probably calla lilies). Strange to see long sleeves too. It seems that mostly bare arms are a dress requirement nowadays, along with too-short-to-bend-over and too-tight-to-breathe.
  12. 7EasyPayments, you owe me a new box of screen wipes!
  13. Oh My Sweet Mother Of Pearl ! I can imagine them pounding on my kitchen window with a dead tree branch in the middle of winter and yelling "Ok lady, where's the f***in' BOID SEED?"
  14. They're absolutely delicious! And they have stores-with-doors in some shopping malls and in some outlet malls across the US (outlet prices too!) or you can order right from the website, lots of flavors to choose from. Best to wait until cooler weather arrives though, I ordered a box or bag from Amazon once in late summer and when they arrived they were a melted gooey inedible mess. Most major grocery chains and drug stores sell them too. I hope no one orders them from the Q after hearing so many people complain about slow delivery times and waiting 2 weeks for their non-perishable orders. It would be absolutely criminal to leave those yummies sitting around in some hot warehouse or delivery truck for a week or two slowly turning into chocolate goop. At least when you order from the company website in hot weather I think they pack them with dry ice and you'll get them in 2 or 3 days at the most, shipping above $75 is usually free. You can also sign up for their regular emails to be notified of sales and special offers. We just wait until winter comes and stock up for the warmer weather.
