    I need to have apps on mobile phone to get discounts in store now.

    I quit going to those places or just pay the $$ if I have to go to one. We usually plan to only shop at places that don't require data mining. The exception is McD's. We go there if the grandkids want to but still don't give up our data.

    Who has working smoke detectors in their home?

    Yeah, been that way for almost 30 years. We would only search a specific room if mom/dad/sibling told us someone was in there. Otherwise we will search the whole house except the room/area with active fire.

    The best Sherlock Holmes

    I remember driving around in High School and listening to serial radio programs. Friday or Saturday night....probably Saturday. I cannot be sure of what it was exactly. The Shadow? Some other mystery/adventure? My buddies did not like it as much but I was the driver so we listened while...

    Who has working smoke detectors in their home?

    I need to replace mine. They have expired. On the list as soon as I'm back on my feet. HOWEVER, I can say this. The vast overwhelming majority of the structure fires I have been on, well over 400, were in homes that were not kept up. Rentals, rundown ''slum'' like houses etc...

    I'm not familiar with that. I just put it in my Amazon cart......I will be ordering it tonight. Thanks. As a side note, that Enola Holmes was more hot garbage.

    Jeremy Brett is #1. I have all the episodes he played in on DVD. His Dr Watson's were good also. Burke then Hardwicke but really not much difference. I like Basil Rathbone as a kid.....the reruns on Saturday afternoon are what got me into reading them. I would still watch him now if I was...
