    Good morning, vagabonds. Yesterday I attended the lecture on ID theft at the senior citizen center. It was a pin point lecture presented by a representative of a company that dealt with legal issues of ID theft, so it really was somewhat skewed. I raised two questions: I prefer not to sign my name to my credit cards but, instead, to write: “See photo ID.” Now the post office refuses to accept a credit card unless it has a signature. The lecturer promised to get back to me on that.

    My second question was: If I tear up my statements (I can’t always get to my bank where I could use theur shredder) and put the torn pieces in my garbage with banana peels, etc. and then throw the tied up garbage bag down the chute where it will be with other rotting garbage, how will a dumpster diver be able to get info from it?

    The lecture was followed by a half hour of light excersize while sitting or standing to some really great music

    Good morning to everyone experiencing this storm. It has been officially designated as a blizzard. Still snowing with high winds and difficult to see out of the windows as the wet snow stuck to them and then the temp. dropped below freezing. Hard to figure how much is on the ground as there is a lot of drifting. I would say between 12 and 20 inches, maybe more. Will measure when I go out to snow blow some time today. Storm is supposed to around noon today, but who knows. That’s New England.

    @DAVID: In the English version of Foxtrot, someone commented:

    You know you are in trouble when the pastor’s ring tone is “highway to hell.”

    To all you Northeasterners dealing with Nemo: Please bring your bathing suits to my swimming pool in North Miami.

    @woodworker – was thinking about you when watching the news about the blizzard on tv last evening (is anyone else in the areas affected by the storm?).
    @david – I’m reading a book by an African safari guide (Botswana) and Texans were his favorite clients. He doesn’t really explain why…just says that with Texans, they were “good to go.”

    I read once that in the absence of a shredder, one might tear up the papers and then soak them in water (sink or bathtub) and then ball them up. While cross-cut is the standard, I would suggest getting an inexpensive strip-cut shredder as better than no shredder (and then divide the shredded strip-cut pieces into a couple piles and dispose separately). Sometimes you can purchase just the shredder mechanism and use your own bin/wastebasket; try Target & Walmart – they may be cheaper than the office supply stores (store or mail-order). Once years ago, when I was moving and my shredder was broken, I triple bagged a lot of sensitive papers and then put them into the condo dumpster right before the “trash truck” came by for the pickup (such timing eliminated the opportunity for a dumpster diver to find the bag).

    I checked FoxTrot and couldn’t find the comment. But it sounds good anyway. I was preaching one time when someone’s ringtone went off playing “When the Saints Go Marching In.” I immediately worked it into my sermon with something like, “And then the saints really will go marching in.” Of course everyone laughed.

    I think he was making another Texas stereotype, because hunting is very popular in Texas. But of course hunting is popular in a lot of other places too.

    Good Morning, Everyone,

    Have been watching the weather channel about Nemo……it sure looks serious. Thanks for the blow by blow, woodworker.

    Arye…….so what did the ID theft guy say about your method of tossing your bank statements?

    Florchi said, almost 4 years ago


    The chapters in the safari guide’s book are separate stories, and in some of the stories the guests (clients) have no experience with hunting or exposure to wild animals and this can create some problems – especially if there is exposure to lions, buffalo, and such. The title of the book is, “Whatever You Do, Don’t Run.”

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    Arye, on my credit cards, I do both. I write “check photo ID” and sign it, too. I have had cashiers actually ask for my ID because of what is written on the card.

    David: to repeat what I said late yesterday: BUMMER!!

    Woodworker, hunker down and have some hot chocolate. As Rita said, thanks for the blow-by-blow (so to speak).

    To all an update on the storm. It is winding down but the wind is still quite strong. I have about 24 inches in my back yard and on my deck and parts of my driveway close to 36 inches depending on how the wind blew around the house. Will go out in a little while and strt snow blowing. Travel is still more or less prohibited. We don’t give proper names to storms, that is the weather channel that does that.

    As I travel N & S twice a year, I have set up (go paperless) for
    all my bills , – that way on the computer they (B of A) remind me when each is due from each Co /I then pay online from my acct.

    As I have nothing to shred and saves trees and helps with the

    Believe it or not, the sun is coming out. Still blowing hard. I just came in after being out for about 11/2 hrs. clearing the snow from in front of the double shed over my outside entrance to my basement. That’s where I keep my snow blower. I don’t have to go out side to start clearing the snow so that I can get the blower out. Was about 36 inches deep. Going to have some lunch and then go back out. Haven’t heard from our man in the NEK. Must have lost power so he can’t get on line. Hope he is OK.

    Hi guys
    Woodworker, you are correct sir, power went out about 4:30 this morning, came back at 11:15.
    I would have gotten here then, but, I had to go and forage for food. ;-)
    I think the repair crew had to go back to base to get something they needed. They were on our road, but nothing happened, I saw them go up by about 11, by 11:15 we had lights.
    We got about what they said we would, by noon we had sun.
    So much for winter storm Nemo.
    That John Wayne movie serial was “The Hurricane Express” 1932.
    Well the skiers are happy now, the snowmoblers are happy now, and then there are thoughs of us that have to get it out of the driveway.
