Re: Things You Love & Hate


I had a nasty ingrown nail back when I was 18-20, bad enough that I went to the doctor for it. He gave me a routine I've followed religiously ever since, and I've never had another.

Particularly on the big toe, trim the nail straight across, just nipping enough off the corners that they won't snag on your socks. Then cut a small "v" dead center. As the nail grows, it'll tend to pull in toward that V and away from the nail folds.

Roll a little tiny wet tissue between two fingers and stick/push it under the nail at the problem location and leave it there for two or three days. Works pretty good.

Some of the ****e on you tube is just downright gross. Must be mostly very old people with failing mental health and mentally unhealthy people that let their toes get so bad.

Re: Things You Love & Hate


Make sure to remember the combination. It doesn’t help much if it’s on the phone locked in the car.

After trying several phone numbers, birthdays, and SSN’s, I finally remembered my combo.

Well, wherever you decide to put it on the car, it should be in the most inconvenient place possible so it a pain to get to, so it's motivation not to lock them in the car in the first place...

Drywall screws allow you to put it anywhere you like.

Unless it’s glass, then use OSI or Big Stretch.

Why would a Ford Ilco 1167FD key be easier in her Buick?

Why would I supply her key? It would be a Ford key if I did supplied it. I do have some 1167FD style keys.
