Some parachutist was found dangling from some wires connected to a radio tower in south St. Louis last night and rescued by Mehlville fire fighters. Here's the questions which weren't answered in this story in the P-D today. He was... Continue reading

This is another boring Charter update: After talking to another phone rep at around 3:30 yesterday afternoon because the house call tech guy went to the wrong house, I received a recorded phone call at 4:30 confirming that someone will... Continue reading

This wind map is pretty cool, especially at this particular moment when it's still dark outside at 6 am but the sound of wind is very loud. The entire middle of the country is showing strong winds for today, just... Continue reading

Barb, I learned something about how to get a real person at Charter this week. While the voice was babbling on I suddenly pressed O and she immediately put me through to an agent. I ended up having to do this for 3 straight days but it worked every time.

Just got a call from Dale who is in Collinsville this afternoon. He broke the news that Charter sent a technician to try and get a signal on our tv to Collinsville, not Clayton. This is the second time this... Continue reading

Todd, we got rid of the landline phone in 2012 and have never regretted it. But we are very close to changing tv providers if the technician who is coming out today can't fix things.

Yesterday afternoon 4 of us climbed up to the top of Luther Tower to put new lights on, and crank up the large Christmas star, which will be turned on in December. It's always best to get this job done... Continue reading

On the eve of the funeral for Oscar Taveras, the St. Louis Cardinals remembered him by turning on only the right field lights. He played right field during his short time with the team. Memorable and quietly beautiful tribute. Continue reading

A new PEW Research Center study finds that more voters are not paying attention to campaign ads this time around. I know I've ignored them. Or tried to. If I'm in the car and a campaign ad begins will a... Continue reading

We can't do satellite because of the trees so I am seriously considering going over to U-Verse if we can skip a landline phone and keep Charter for internet. Here's the problem we're dealing with now. Ever since Charter made... Continue reading

Found this picture somewhere last night and was just engrossed in it. All those buses, taxis, people, lights. But especially all those buses. State Street has always been the main shopping corridor in downtown, but wow, the crowds at night.... Continue reading

This is one of those marketing theories which just amaze. Amaze because someone even thought to study the impact of wind, temperature and the food we'll buy. "in the second year of an extensive partnership with the Weather Co., Walmart... Continue reading

An Iowa woman who has operated a cash only Mexican restaurant recently learned that the IRS had siezed her checking account for no reason. The agents did not accuse Ms. Hinders of money laundering or cheating on her taxes —... Continue reading

Ron, you are such a fan of road work, it makes me believe you don't drive around that much. And, that section of 64 has had roadwork for years. I'm guessing it's a political payback from the state for votes which give St. Clair county people doing "making up stuff" highway work. Talk to people who have to drive 64 each day into work, they would do anything not to have to suffer through it every day. And this weekend's jam up was so unnecessary. Miles and miles for almost nothing.

From now until Halloween television stations all over cable will be running scary movies. If you don't believe me, roam around with your remote this weekend. Not my favorite thing to come across these ghouls while flipping channels. Continue reading
