You've got that right. He is very set in his opinions on seemingly
everything and it's either his way or get put in his kill-file. And that's
really all that any of this is. His opinions. But why in the world either
he or Pico would drag up stuff that went on in another newsgroup to here is
beyond me. Both just seem to love stirring up trouble. I only brought it
up because he did it to me first. Not that he'll even see any of this
because he does have me kill-filed. I just thought he was off doing other
things and not on Usenet. Apparently not. But the more I think about
this... Since you mentioned religion, that may well be *why* he is being
mean to that other woman. Religion. She is of one that is not his. :(
I'm far less than perfect, in people matters.
Can't remember all the gambits and counter
moves, and who said what, and when. But, the
general impression from my memory is that
Julie B has been sincere, and seeking infor-
mation. Less sure about the sincerity of the
others you mention.
As people are usually consistent, it's easy
to imagine that the same Todd who pounded on
my head with a rolled up news paper would
pound some one else.
Yep! And I did come here trying to understand the problems I was having but
I dislike being called crazy and having other posters telling people not to
respond to me. So unless my name should come up here again and I hope it
will not, I will be getting my information elsewhere and I will try not to
post here. It's apparently just not a pleasant place. At least in not in
terms of some of the posters. And again, thanks to those who did try to

For the record, I don't understand the logic behind Pico starting the
attack on you here either. As you say, you had nothing to do with the
other thread and I don't see any valid connection. But this kind of thing
happening here certainly isn't unique either. I've seen similar and a lot
worse on other groups. It's not a moderated forum and that goes along with
the territory, for better or worse.
You should hear her carry on about her husband and
daughter on other groups. If I was to hear she was
found buried in her back yard, although I would not
approve or condone it, part of me would understand.
You are right. You just have to walk away (kill file)
that kind of a spirit. Not let those kinds of fumes
into your heart. And what I can tell, she rather
enjoys it when people fight back with her.
What is wrong with you? Why are you doing this? Why would anyone drag
stuff from one newsgroup to another? What are you doing? Stalking me? How
many other names do you use?
There is nothing wrong with *my* spirit. I have better things to do than to
act in such a childish manner as you people here are. I don't know how old
Pico is, but I know you are older than me. This is pathetic. :(
Well, I'm going to stick my neck in here and say not to. I can swim. But
I'm not Houdini.
What I don't understand is... Why are people talking about me when I am not
here? Why are people such as Todd who claims to have me kill-filed,
dragging up stuff from other groups? Yeah, he called his wife a Trophy wife
and apparently he is claiming that isn't a nasty thing to say. I can't
think of any woman who would want to be referred to as that, or the other
name he called her. I won't bother even getting into that. None of this
makes any sense.
I wouldn't even have come back here except that I accidentally clicked on
this NG and saw my name.
Nothing is broken in my house right now or even needs to be repaired
although it should get a new coat of paint.
Nonsense. I said that the problems are all fixed although the plumber said
we should probably extend the vent pipe up another foot out of the roof. It
is up to code though but he said that might prevent the flame from going out
in high winds. Might but also might not. That will likely have to wait
about three weeks though. I have other fish to fry.
I did post of it. Basically they had to redo most of the installation.
Nothing was put up properly. Some wires were too tight and some were too
loose. They tightened the loose ones but the ones on either side of the
garage door are far too tight. This was likely done out of spite after I
complained about the loose hanging wire everywhere. The end result? If
someone so much as lightly bumps either of the sensors (eyes) which were
also improperly installed, this will knock the sensor out of place and pull
on the wires causing trouble. They put the sensors just at the edges of the
garage door opening instead of further back like the old ones were and up
far too high.
The unit itself was being held up by only one nut and bolt instead of two
and the brackets were put on the wrong part of the opener. Originally the
installer tried to use the old brackets for a Genie and the whole thing was
so wobbly, it was about to fall down. After I complained, he used the
correct brackets. Just installed them wrong. The end result of that was
that the unit itself was on the verge of falling down and the chain was
about to come off the track yet again. So that was all put right. And that
is why my door wouldn't fully close. Everything was too loose.
I might still have a problem with the sensors and their wires. If I do I
will have to call the new guy back again but it will mean having to rewire
those as they currently cut the wires so short there was nothing he could do
except use new wire.
As for the keypad, neither of the new guys were familiar with the unit and
looking on the Internet for instructions were of no more help to them than
they were for me. It just wasn't working right. And it was a generic unit.
They had the correct unit for this opener and they installed it for a mere
I'm sure I left out some details. Oh and... I did report the first company
to the BBB and the complaint has been registered. And the next call these
new guys were making was across the street from me to a house with exactly
the same complaints that I had!
The new installers said that most of the companies in this area and not just
garage doors but other types of repairs are run by some guy or people in a
call center, not necessarily even in this state. They outsource to foreign
people. The older guy's wife once followed up on a company that outsources
to Mexicans and found their address to be a Dairy Queen. Yep. They are
rampant here. Oh and the name of the good company? Barron's Garage Doors.
Anyone in the Seattle area who has door or opener problems that they can't
fix themselves? Call them. They would have done the job for less than half
what we paid. Not sure why my bro couldn't get in contact with them. He
told me that someone was sick or in the hospital so they couldn't come right
away. But they told me that part wasn't true. They did say that they were
very busy at some point so that may just have been it./
I know, I was little over board. I don't like time wasters. I am in good
today, I found what I need for my sun room wall mounted heat pump/ I need
a new capillary thermostat to run it in heat mode. Even found a replacement
in Indiana(Shorty's HVAC parts) our collection of orchids won't freeze when
it gets cold. We already received 2nd snow fall.
Yes, sort of, on a palm size city lot. Back yard is all concrete pad I
used park fiver there.
One side yard is full of wild edible vegetables/herbs. Few fruit trees,
TOO MANY delpheniums growing every where. We plant veges. in an old oak
barrel cut in half filled
with compost. All summer, green peppers, zucchini, cukes, green onion,
beans,chad, lettuce,tomato etc. are growing enough for two of us. About
dozen of those half barrels which came from local distillery. Wife is
