Thanks guys..just needed to get it off my chest. Turns out it will cost about 80bucks just to replace the ice cream maker. I don't anticipate making that much ice cream the rest of my life. Although I really liked that model because it didn't take up much space in the freezers I will probably replace it with something from a yard sale. Most of the other stuff..well, I'll just have to bite the bullet and order what I need.

I hear you CG. My apartment is right over the mechanical room. Now these apartments are well insulated. My neighbor and I can't hear a thing from each other's apartment. When I have my windows closed in the winter I can't hear any street noise.

But! I can hear the water heater kick on and the hum it makes. And I can hear the sump pump kick on when it is raining. I have gotten use to it, but at first it drove me crazy. Now the sump pump lulls me to sleep.

I had a bad day today. But I came from it with the calmness of knowing I am loved by my dearest DA and others.

Life is so wonderful! No matter what.

People on facebook posting political crap. They aren't adding to the conversation, just complaining. When you try to have a rational discussion with them, you realize that they have no idea what they are talking about. It's very frustrating.

I've hidden most of those people. I don't post political stuff. I was raised that you don't discuss politics or religion in mixed company. So why do people think that FB is the proper place to bring up politics? Do they think that they are going to change any minds? The best way to do this is having rational discussions and be educated on the issues, not just posting inflammatory rants are only going to tick people off.

I think that banning political discussions on forums like this is a great idea.

I have friends on FB that post their political views in a rational, calm, and insightful manner. They are extremely passionate about their views but they are polite to people who disagree with them and encourage intelligent discourse in their postings. I absolutely cherish these people because they are so greatly out numbered by the people who are beligerent, confrontational, insulting, ignorant, obstinate, and just plain rude in the way they express their beliefs.

Unfortunately, these kinds of comments aren't limited to politics or religion. You can see posts on FB, forums, comments sections about almost any subject and find people who simply have no manners and only want to cause contention. It's sad, and you're absolutely correct that it doesn't change people's views, except perhaps of how valuable "friends" might be if they are so willing, and sometimes eager, to cause trouble.

Political is just one of the kinds of the crap people post on FB.

Agreed. I was raised you don't discuss politics, religion or abortion because there will never be any agreement on any of those topics.

I think people get kind of "puffed up" on FB and get carried away. They don't think of other people's feelings or opinions and it seems they want to shove stuff down your throat.

I'm all for a good discussion, but not a fight.

I also appreciate the few restrictions we have here .. keeps the place nice and clean and a ton of fun.

So sorry to hear of all that going wrong joesfolk. Been there. Seems like we just start to get ahead and BAM something else goes. Last thing was the hot water heater .. that was a bummer because we had just dealt with the fridge and the heater. Hope I haven't jinxed myself now !!
