    I'll squeeze Valencias when I can get them but navels are much more common around here and underrated for OJ. One of the best things about Spain--even the cheapest dive breakfast places squeeze oranges.
    The oranges. Wandering around the south of Spain during orange season was amazing. OMG the oranges.

    When I was a kid we drove over Tehachipi Pass into the Central Valley. The orange trees were in bloom and it was the most wonderful and overwhelming smell ever.

    My wife retired January 2020 and we were suppose to go to Yurp April 2020. Anyways, fast forward to today and the girl is chomping at the bit to go on vacation ANYWHERE! Canada is out for now, she is talking Maui so what do I suggest do to keep her happy?
    I was holding of on Yurp until spring 2022. Do we just go in September or is there another idea you have? I mean where we live is fucking great and everyone comes here to holiday, but lets go somewhere else.

    What do you want, or more importantly, does she expect to do on vacation?

    I mean, if the trip was cause she retired donít you think she should get to pick? Certainly nothing wrong with Maui. I also understand having to leave a place every once in awhile. Even if itís generally pretty great. I could never live anywhere without the ability to leave it fairly regularly.

    Florida on the other hand still smells putrid, even with the oranges.

    Doubt the filter is causing the static on the voice side. The filter is designed to protect the data side. So unless she is losing the data connection, I'd suspect these things: Bad wiring- either inside the house or outside going to the central office. Water and rain can cause the same issue if there is a break in the cable that was not spliced and sealed properly (my house would get this regularly on the phone lines after a rain or spring time snow melt.) The line is a buried line from the central office and according to the telco repairmen, years back there was a animal that chewed through the full cable and then the spliced it to cross connect the 2 sections.) Terminals also can get corroded over time. Need to find the Demarc and test the line there with a phone if they do not pay for inside wiring support or the telco will test and if the inside wiring past the Demarc termination is at fault they will bill for the repair.

    Easy way to test the filter theory is remove it (or all of them since each jack or device is to have one if the house was not wired with a single central filter on the voice split). Of course the internet will not work properly without the filters, but they can test for 10 minutes without them.

    Renting a car, as long as you’re not in Paris or Rome etc., gives great flexibility, which is a major value when I tourist travel. I like to be able to change the plan. Big cities, I like walking, ‹ber, and metros.

    Business if you got the $$/€€. YOLO and all that. You’re on that plane for what amounts to a full day.

Not really sure what that means. There’s some tech people that respond in the “what phone now” thread that might not read this one.

    Edit yeah re-read and see you’re talking land lines. No tech guru here sorry.
    Router is data side only, not much for the voice noise. Again unplug the router or DSL modem and if the noise goes away on voice, then maybe it is contributing. But router usually does nothing like causing noise on the voice and regular telephone line to a plain telephone.

    Also forgot to mention to the OP EL Chup- for his parents, cordless telephone and having the noise issue could be related to interference including the wifi or other appliances. If you have only a cordless phone, try a plain wired phone directly into the jack.

    Edit also completely agree with the comments of Ski220 in his reply on the issue. The Demarc could be a box outside or even in the house- garage or basement or something depending on the telco company. Sometimes it is a punch block or screw post terminals if 50 years old also and never been upgraded or changed (a bit newer than the wiring I am dealing with as this house was 1967/8... But I know when it is inside wiring by testing as stated, and rarely is.

    Turn Maui into Kauai, bring a backpack and buy/rent surfboards. Great trip.

    So, for anyone who knows anything about rootering a main sewer line:

    My main sewer line is old clay pipe and will need to be replaced eventually. I have been told many times that the best way to put that off is to get the main line rootered regularly/yearly, and not to wait for root intrusions to cause a backup. So today was my annual-ish rooter clean of the main line. Because I do this regularly there is usually very little or no roots to be cut. But today's guy said that putting that spinning blade in the pipe is the WORST thing to do to the pipe, and that I am causing damage and shortening the life of the pipe by doing it. Obviously what he's telling me runs counter to his whole business (and his employer may not like him saying that), but it is also the very first time anyone has said that.

    Thoughts?

    There is some obvious logic to the idea that a spinning metal blade could damage a fragile clay pipe.

    My house is early '70s construction and most likely has a cast iron sewer line (in that era clay was still used, cast iron was pretty common, and plastic was fairly new but also relatively common). We had a root clog backup once (all laundry rinse water, thank God) and unfortunately the cleanout is located directly behind the water heater so rootering it is a huge PITA. My solution has been Roebic Foaming Root Killer 3x per year (spring/summer/fall; https://www.lowes.com/pd/Roebic-Labo...E&gclsrc=aw.ds) and Roebic Main Line Cleaner 2x per year (spring/fall; https://www.lowes.com/pd/Roebic-Labo...E&gclsrc=aw.ds). 13 years since the backup and so far, so good.

    Another unthreadworthy question (could ask in one of the rat flu threads but putting here instead).

    Going to a wedding in NYS (upstate?) in July. We will be in Burlington VT area before the wedding. Everyone attending must have proof of vax or proof of negative test within 3 days. My daughter isn't vaccinated, obviously, and I've never done any testing anywhere.

    Where can I go in the Burlington VT area for rapid testing? And more importantly, I guess, how rapidly do you get the results?

    Have you ever had your line scoped so you know exactly what your dealing with ? The cutting head causing further damaging is a definite possibility depending on the state of your clay pipes. A decent scope viewing will able to show what kind of cracks damage have and give you a better idea of where the rot intrusion is as well as if you're causing more damage.

    All true everywhere except Switzerland and to some extent Austria where public transport between the trains and "post bus" is amazing.

    France and Italy really require a car, I think.

    He is full of shit. Like yourself I have old clay pipes. A camera inspection a few years back showed the pipes were in good shape but roots could grow in the joints where they connect. I bought this from Home Depot as I need a 100 foot snake. I use it twice a year. https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-1...6998/202826588

    Obviously I don't know VT but here's the state website info: https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-...ere-get-tested

    I've done a couple rapid tests recently locally (UCHealth) and have had results back in under 24hr, even though they claim 2-3 days. The most recent one, I got the test around noon and had results that evening.
