where to get a featherweight radio transmitter for a helium balloonlaunch? (for my son's YMCA Adventure Guides/Indian Guides group) by Ohioguy
As a kid, I enjoyed participating in mass balloon launches with various groups. We would put our name & address on paper and stuck tape on both sides, taped to the balloon. We always hoped to hear back from someone about how far our balloon went. I was considering doing something low tech...

CafeMom: "$200 a month on groceries for a family of 4 is impossible" by [email protected]
Haven't looked at the comments yet, but the author already has and she listed which tips she's going to use. I have to admit, unless you live in the sticks and/or need to lose weight anyway, it WOULD be pretty difficult to feed 4 people with $200 a month! Lenona.

Good broadband? by KenK
I'm looking to get rid of my slow dial-up internet connection using Centurylink. Replace it with a broadband service needing no landline ($40 a month). All those - cable, wireless - that I Googled have really horrible reviews. Very poor service and quality. But, as someone said to me - 'you...

New Sanitation bins bring havoc by anthona
Here in the NYC area, the sanitation department sent out to each household a nice looking covered bin on wheels and a small white case. These are meant only for food wastes. So far, so good. In putting food scraps into these units have produced nasty flies that even lay their eggs within those...

Cell vs: landline? by KenK
I have been using both for years. I use the landline for a dial-up internet connection - very, very slow. The cell is a cheap dumb phone for ~ $100 prepaid a year. Landline costs ~ $40 a month. Landline DSL would cost $40 a month in addition to the $40 a month telephone service I was thinking,...

Rechargeable AA cells by The Real Bev[_6_]
I bought half a dozen 'precharged' Duracell AAs a couple of years ago for use in my camera. The advantage of the 'precharged' batteries is that they supposedly hold a 90% charge after a year. Wrong. They last -- unused -- in my camera bag just about as long as they last in my camera, which I...

Email effectiveness by KenK
In my experience email is losing its effectiveness. For example, twice this past week my email to a company with a question/problem was ignored and I've had to send USPS letters instead. Hope those get read. This is getting more and more common. Evidently the great rise in spam and phish has...
