Anybody ever eaten a "Marquez burrito" ? by OhioGuy

Reviving dried-out typewriter ribbon by Jack Ricci
I have a Royal portable typewriter with an installed black ribbon and a spare ribbon. Both ribbons have totally dried out in spite of being packed in a plastic bag. Is there a way to bring life back to them, especially the new one, as they cost nearly 10 dollars for the plain black ribbon?...

Conversation by [email protected]
Now that this newsgroup has been dead for a while, where do you go for a real nonholds barred conversation or exploration of topics where there is some intelligence? facebook has got to be one of the crappiest excuses for social media I can imagine, and I'm learning how it forces people to comment...

3 x 5 white unlined pads by KenK
I wonder why they quit making these pads. You used to be able to find them everywhere - Walmart, 99 cent stores, etc. - but no more. I finally gave up looking locally and ordered a couple dozen with some other stuff from Amazon. Better than the spiral 3 x 5 lined notepads. For me, anyhow. Should...

New watch? by KenK
My old Casio watch, on its second battery, was a half hour slow when I woke up this moring. New battery or new watch? In the past, when battery failed the watches stopped. TIA -- You know it's time to clean the refrigerator when something closes the door from the inside.
