  • Oldiesmann: Heard from them this afternoon. The cost of repairs ended up being far more than they originally estimated and about $1200 more than what they say the car is worth (which is a little more than what I paid for it), so they're going to total it.

  • so_P_bubble: Fingers crossed! I hope the final cost for repair will be lower than previously estimated!

  • Oldiesmann: It was towed to the local body shop on Friday so I should know more this week about whether they want to repair it

  • Oldiesmann: I believe he meant "borderline" in terms of cost of repairs vs how much they think the car is actually worth

  • so_P_bubble: Michael, that does not sound good, especially for your own security. Maybe you could sell as spare parts and find another bargain? A few months ago mine was stolen during the night and the security cams showed it fleeing toward the Palestinian territories - gone forever. I had just paid the yearly l

  • Oldiesmann: Bubble, the insurance company is having it taken to a local body shop to further inspect it. The appraiser did say it was "borderline" repairable though, despite otherwise being in good condition and having low miles (less than 76,000)

Thought I'd show off something I've been working on lately. It's a discussion site for Cincinnati, the city I live in. It's only been open to the public for a couple of days so there's not much content yet, but I'm hoping it will take off at some point. If you or anyone you know lives (or used to live) in Cincinnati, feel free to drop by or send them my way :)

Congratulation Oldiesmann.
I wanted to post my congratulations on site but did not know how :) 
Best of luck on your new endeavor.  :thumbup:

You have to register over there to be able to post. Thanks for the well wishes. Still trying to figure out how to get people to register at the moment (and of course figuring out what to post as well - I don't have time to post a link and discussion about every single local news story)

I wil keep a watch on here,see what you are planning on starting.
We are getting short on posters now on S and F. Need to start something to bring us back together.

...yes agree, many old time regulars have now stopped posting on our forum, I personally dont-wont touch facebook but i know several do post on there and keep in contact with members who were once on our S & F's forum but, a great idea to start a topic where we can bring our old time friends - posters back again to posting on our forum site, if only to say a hello and let us know how they have been keeping, what has been going on in their lives...It is sad that so many have dropped away from our site over the years although i am aware if and when we lose a valued member to death word does get around and they-some flock back to pay their respects but sadly we dont seem to be able to keep them here..I am sure many still look in, sadly, just never post anymore, now if only we could entice our old friends back permanently..

Guess that we have not been noticed yet in this forum. Just so hard to get people aboard any of them.
I hope soon you will be able to move and getting settled into a place where can make friends and find things to keep you busy.

I live on a Mobile Home park and have been here since it started so many years ago. Thing is it is very convenient to everything. Stores. Hospitals, Bus stations for the best public transport in the state. I still drive so don't use it that much but know it is there when needed. Now I have ended up the only person left here from about a 100 sites. So many have passed away or moved in senior living. Young have purchased their mobile home. Some have moved off. My friends bought the land and made it into a park. They now sold it to a large corporation that owns 2500 parks all over the country. Now I have a large corner lot right where the entry is. I would have left if I had been further back but It is so private for me. Love living here and can't think of moving into retirement place. No family close and now even people I worked last 29 years with have passed. Thing is I have lived alone for 59 years and know no other way. Raised more or less alone growing up. Been asked to marry at least 4 times up to age 70 but just knew not for me.
Traveled a lot and back to UK 15 times. family been over here quite a few times also. I need to try and get back to UK this coming year
. Just have one cousin and they always traveled a lot with me along with them when over there but now hard for him to leave UK as had heart problem so Insurance to travel hard to get and expensive. So easier for me to get there.  Had 2 of my grandsons over 10 years ago and youngest daughter back 3 times last 10 years. But they married now and live 1400 miles away. Times go bye so fast.
Now got to live next 5 month in the cold midwest. Snowing like crazy now but I have all I need to keep me busy in the house for awhile. Got to watch though as I tend to cook and eat to much when this happens.

Now you take care of yourself. use all the help you can get from the Gov. there. My mum was a widow from age 40 to 79 and had a good life along with her sister who lost husband and was alone about 25 years. She and I did a lot together up to about 7 years ago. Really miss her when I come over. Miss a lot of my friends also. Just have to think of good time had and carry on. Just don't get stressful as that is bad for health

...i know you have good - fond memories of UK, and not long back you were considering a place back here, cant remember where, think you mentioned somewhere in the South...was it a place that was, or had nearly been left to you...Anyway..." home is where the heart is..."
