Re: Build a Dam on the Missouri River? And making new/more lakes?

Not only that but it has changed channels many times in many areas since the white man came around (and who knows how many times before that).  Can't remember how far away it was from the current river channel but the steamboat Arabia was buried in the middle of a cornfield when it was found. ...

They have a much bigger seating area than the old location, but they still fill it out quite nicely during the lunch rush.  I'd say for a large group you probably want to show up 11:30ish or a bit before.

Re: Speeding Ticket

Here's an idea that's worked for me:  don't speed.  Speeding saves you almost no time, and increases the chances that you'll never get to your destination at all.  So you get home two minutes sooner.  You going to spend those extra two minutes doing something other than watching...

Re: Homeless living full time at Nichols fountain

Hmm... So it's the homeless person's problem that they are in that position? Hopefully none of you are saying that. They also aren't pests that we need to get rid of, as many people have pointed out, we need to provide shelters. It's just too bad the government doesn't force people to build homes f...

Re: The Official Kansas City Weather Thread

Do any of you weather buffs out there have recommendations on a decent weather radio?  I bought a Midland in May but I've come to the conlusion that the one I got is defective--it never picked up a single watch or warning, even though I had the "SAME" codes set up correctly.

Re: New Townhomes in west River Market? (along Wyandotte)

- I've never heard of waferboard (plywood made with random chips instead of laminated into sheets) as having a particular problem with moisture, any more so than any other wood product.  I think you may be thinking of masonite, but I'm not sure. - The inner portion of the building envelope wher...

That sounds pretty steep...  :D

Closing costs alone would be more than the price of the house.

Re: Vote for the new KS license plate!

I like the colors of #2, but I hate the windmill. If KS is trying to eliminate this farmland image, why continue to drape farm scenes all over our plates? That's why I like the current one with the capital building on it. Either that or the one with just the seal on it. Wind energy is becoming avan...

I recall from another thread that Pumpkinstalker had bought one of your prints to use for decorating his apartment.  So, if I were interested, where would a person find that kind of thing?
