Hi, I'm sure that Costco has the camera that I want, but I have to leave Maine to get it. We are leaving Maine on the 13th and we will find a Costco on our way. If I buy from Costco and don't like it, I can easily return it. Right now, Caroline says the nearest Costco is just over one hundred miles away and in New Hampshire or Vermont.

This morning Lee made Lobster omelets, and for dinner, I had Lobster, mini potatoes, and lots of butter. This might well be the last Lobster from Maine, but I don't think it will be our last Lobster of this trip. More coastal areas to visit.

On the way west, make sure you go stop for some Rocky Mountain Lobster. I believe it's not so salty.

Make sure the RM oysters are well washed or they will be very salty.

She was so close to hitting me that I could only see her window and not any part of the side of her car. Had to be anywhere from one to six inches between us. She knew that she was wrong because when I passed her, she just looked straight ahead. I have to say that my truck and trailer brakes did their job. In eleven years, this is the first time ever that I had to slam on my brakes. Lee was surprised at how fast my reactions are, especially at my age. I had to get out at McDonalds and see if she wiped some of the dirt off of the side of my truck. That was a close one.
I often with there was a like button as on Facebook. I would like this post several times.

There was something similar once. I believe it was discontinued because of numerous members seeking counseling due to insecurity from insufficient positive reinforcement when compared to others' posts. Now one must seek security and approval from within or infer it from responses. It builds character and causes one to be introspective.

9-15-2015.

Hi, we did a lot of driving in the past few days. We spent the night in two different Wal-Marts with no hook-ups and no WIFI. We stopped at Costco in Vermont and I bought a new camera. It was on sale too. I bought the Panasonic Lumix model #DMC-ZS40SCP. It's still pocket sized, 30 times optical zoom, and the biggie is that it has a screen and a view finder. And I saved $50.00, but had to pay sales tax.

We are now in Amish territory; We are in a camp ground in Ronks Pa. We will be here for two nights. We got the last space available, again.

I would like this post too. I do remember there being a way to give positive feedback, but it wasn't the same as a LIKE.

You sure are lucky Bob, or not. Perhaps the last space isn't as great as the others, but just getting a space might make one grateful just the same.

Hi, I feel lucky; They put me in an overflow space which is also for Laundry parking and we were going to have to hitch up and move to a real space tomorrow. Moving would interrupt our touring of the Amish, so I asked if I could just stay in the laundry parking for the two nights and they said it was OK with them. We are between the office and a house, close to the laundry which we are doing tonight, and close to the WIFI signal. Note: the laundry parking space has full hook-ups too.

There apparently used to a way to give good and bad "karma". However, I'm just a kid and much to young to remember that. My impression that the bad karma part was (understandably) causing some hurt feelings and other emotional issues. Other than a post in the thread saying you agree or whatever, the only method is to use the thanks button. On other forums I participate in using this same software, the number of "Thanks" shows up in a post's header. That apparently is not used here.

The thanks is posted in the recipient's Control Panel. Depending on his settings, it may also trigger a email or PM notification to him. The total number of thanks received determines the number of green squares that show up in the upper right of a user's profile. I'm not sure of the number per square.

I'm sure some of the moderators understand it in much greater detail than I.

Hi, today we took an Amish wagon tour through farm land and stopped at an Amish farm. We were given a tour of the working part of the farm. We bought some Amish made cookies and an Amish made root beer. Later in the day we drove around looking for covered bridges. I used my new camera today, but haven't down loaded any pictures yet. I think I like it. The people around here drive real fast; Not like freeway, or hot rod fast, but crazy fast on the very narrow streets that are shared with Amish buggies/wagons.
