Bird's Botanicals specializes in orchids, but they have awesome succulents. The staff and owner are all super knowledgeable.

It's only open Tuesdays, in some caves off 435E.

Yep. Ask again, on Thursday, if you still haven't received the split.

They lag behind a few days for distribution. I haven't received mine from yesterday either. Just hang tight.

You can change the exchange that the trade was made on, and try to find a more reasonable rate.

How To Get Windows 10 For 'Free' In 2018 by wewewawa in Frugal

That is way easier. They just removed the link to the update utility. The file is still up, though.

YSK you can still upgrade to windows 10, from 7 & 8, for free by whistlespeaker in YouShouldKnow

[–]whistlespeaker[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah man.

*Edit: I was busy... It's an upgrade for folks with accessibility needs, but it works just fine. If you have a valid license already, it will still be valid after the upgrade, but you will not be required to fill in any info. I'm not sure, but I think you can upgrade unlicensed versions, but will remain unlicensed.

Where can "dumb" (HD) TVs be found for a good price these days? by JordyGarlic in Frugal

[–]whistlespeaker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I know you're pushing for new, but if you can find a thrift store near a wealthy suburb, there are always a bunch of nice tv's & monitors. Most don't even accept CRT's anymore.

Study suggest that people who structure their own systematic rules for eating, and adhere to them regardless of feelings of hunger and satiety, are markedly better at keeping weight off compared to those who follow special diets or eat for pleasure and satiety. by drewiepoodle in science

That doesn't mean they don't enjoy them.

This is how I eat. I actually get satisfaction from not giving into all kinds of cravings. I love food, I just don't mind if I'm a bit hungry, and I feel like shit if I over-eat.

I don't know any driver who doesn't despise this intersection.

Update- Old Town heard my plea for help and responded with the worst caulking job ever by [deleted] in kansascity

[–]whistlespeaker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gotcha. I'd just seal any gap that you can feel air flowing through.

Ok. So that type of window sucks. You can stop asking maintenance for help, as they will likely keep performing at this level.

You have to make sure both latches latch, & the window fully closes. If there is caulking or grout is suck in the bottom of the cavity that the window slides in (especially the little crevices toward the outside of the building), scraper it out with a pocket knife or something similar.

Now, even if it closes, you have to make sure it's seated right in the middle of the frame. If you're good there, and there is still outside air passing, you can call maintenance again to re-apply the caulking, but you have to be there. Just stand there politely and make sure they don't leave until the job is done.

By the way, they don't flatten it down, so you can easily remove it in the summer, when you need to open you windows back up. It's also kind of a fire hazard.

Wedding caterers? by Sparkykc124 in kansascity

[–]whistlespeaker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My job is to bartend events (mostly weddings). I've had all of the big caterers food in town. The best is only a tiny better than the worst. In fact, I've never had awesome catering from anyone who advertises it, except from an Indian restaurant up north.

Here's the catch. Not one of your guests will care, or remember their meal. It probably won't be exactly what you're dreaming of, either. Just find a reasonably priced vendor and just go with it.
