previously published 4/29/2011 Favorite TV Episode guest post


Thanks for the post from Stan Atkins
I'm so glad I can watch my favorite TV episode of "The Dick Van Dyke Show" on best choice tv. It makes the show seem clearer and fresher than when I watched it using my old TV antennae.
The episode was the one where Rob and Buddy thought they had seen and heard a UFO when they worked late at the office one night. It was hilarious to watch them first try to convince themselves that they hadn't seen or heard anything. Then, gradually, fear began to grow. The music that was used to intensify the mood of funny fear was used to wonderful effect as they crept through the seemingly empty office building, looking for the "flying saucer".
Of course "The Dick Van Dyke Show" was always a funny program, and I can watch it over and over again. The fact that it is in black and white doesn't matter a bit. It's a comfortable program with characters that I enjoy getting to know now that I'm an older adult. It makes me wish for more innocent times, too.
Nowadays, UFOs are in the news quite often. A person who sees something strange and unidentifiable in the sky is not always looked upon as a nut as they were back in the early sixties.

previously published 4/3/2011 inkgrabber.com Grab a deal on ink at inkgrabber.com!

Don't you hate going to your local big box store to search for ink for your printer, and you find that they don't even have your ink brand? Or, they only have one or two for printer models that just came out that year? That's where shopping for your ink cartridges online comes in super handy!

Do you have a Dell printer? Laser or inkjet, one of the best places to buy Dell printer ink is at www.inkgrabber.com/DELL_menu.html   Many bricks and mortar stores still only stock inkjet printer ink. Shopping online assures that the store will carry your laser ink cartridges.

One of the bonuses of shopping online is receiving your Dell ink cartridges directly at your house. Nothing beats online shopping for ease of use. It takes just steps to your mail box, versus driving around searching for an empty parking spot.

Inkgrabber.com/DELL_menu.html has three ways to locate your Dell ink: a drop down menu showing all the series, a drop down menu showing all the Dell cartridges by number, and a search box. I prefer the searching with the cartridge number menu. Just take your old cartridge out of your printer, and browse all the numbers until you find the one matching yours.

I have a much loved 1996 Toyota Corolla with under 160,000 miles on it. Recently the automatic transmission had to have an overhaul, and searching

I then found a tab called just for reported problems.  You search for your make, model and  year and it lists repairpal verified known issues. Who knew that my car's automatic transmission has problems shifting at high mileages?! That sounds like it might be just a little bit important to know when driving on the highway!

I then searched for my boyfriend's car, a 1999 VW Golf  at http://repairpal.com/volkswagen-golf-1999/problems.  Geez, his car has some known issues, too. I told him some of them, like issues with his engine overheating, and also difficulty when shifting at high speeds. I read these aloud to him, and he agreed that those would be very good to know about! I am going to forward this website to my friends and family members.
