    Re: Local TV Ads You Don't Like

    The Hawaiian Air ads on radio where the crew is making personal remarks over the airplane's PA system. It's one thing to say that you know your customers - it's completely different to broadcast...

    Re: Disappearing businesses

    This one's a little different. The store is doing fine. It appears the landlord got a better offer. So what's being planned? That's a pretty big parcel. A big box store? Who? More retail? ...

    Re: 99% isopropyl alcohol

    Check the drug stores. I know I regularly get 90% alcohol pads at Walmart.

    Re: Ridiculous Electric Bill

    Reality. Since we're putting so many eggs into the solar basket, it makes sense to try and move usage to the daylight hours. I can already hear the screams about how it's favoring business over...

    Funny. That's close to what I've concluded about some of the left-wingers.

    Re: Annoying Storm Warnings

    I don't think that's part of the NWS's standard operating procedure. If it is, it's a change. And doing so only creates a situation of crying "wolf" for those who weren't terribly affected by the...

    Re: Annoying Storm Warnings

    The problem is the crawl message is just the limited information from the digital signal. It tells you what kind of alert and what areas are affected. ("Flash Flood Warning for the island of Oahu")...

    Re: Annoying Storm Warnings

    My issue was with the number of alerts that carried NO additional information, just an extension of a prior alert.

    Re: Weather updates

    The severe storm that produced the hail was quite small. It came up from the south and covered from Aina Hina to Kailua and points east. The bulk of the island was untouched by that particular...

    The "duck farts" in the audio is what triggers any automated system that happens to be listening to the channel.

    The weather alerts are sent by the National Weather Service, but depending on what...

    Looks like it's over for Oahu - on this go-around. Only one lightning bolt/thunder this afternoon and lots of rain.

    Re: Weather updates

    Yeah, town got some good ones last night. I was only 2 seconds away from me. (Time from flash to boom). Given the brightness and sound, I think it was cloud to ground, not the usual cloud to cloud.

    Re: The GOP vs women

    It's all supply and demand. We have no choice but to pay or go without. But the more supply there is, the lower the prices.

    Re: The GOP vs women

    From what I understand, part of it is speculation - so failure to drill for the oil we have means there's less oil down the road and speculation pushes up the price now. Has Obama opened up the off...

    Re: The GOP vs women

    The fact is the prices are going up and there's talk of $5/gal in our near future. That's never good for the incumbents. I certainly don't see them doing anything to lower the price - like allowing...

    Maybe a semantics issue. I doubt if this is something Sears wants to do, but given their situation, they have little choice.

    I wonder how well AMC was doing for Sears. It's hard for me to read...
