10/21/14 07:22 PM on not being blind by LCranston

For those other members that are mostly blind without glasses:

Eye Buy Direct, is offering their Buy One Pair of Glasses and Get The Second Pair FREE after Coupon Code: "BOGO" (Exp 10/27)
One pair must be at least $14.95 for this deal to work. Shipping starts at $4.95. Case and cleaning cloth included.

link eyebuydirect.com

I am not in sales, and do not make any money from this, I am just another customer.

I have bought from Zenni Optical and Eye Buy Direct and had good luck with both.

If you have never shopped online for glasses, they ask for one item that is not usually on regular Prescription- pupillary distance (distance from middle of face to each pupil)

Your doctor can give this to you when you get your eyes checked.

10/21/14 03:23 PM NatGeo: Two years after Sandy by Arney

I thought this National Geographic article looking back at Hurricane Sandy two years later had some interesting points.

For example, I had no idea that the National Hurricane Center basically became unable to forecast and provide information about Sandy as it neared NYC--its systems just could not do it. At that point, the NHC handed off responsibility to local weather centers. The emergency managers in NYC were caught off guard because all of their plans assumed steady info from the NHC regarding the progress of the hurricane and suddenly it was cut off.

From the article:

Quote:
The thing of it is, Mother Nature plays to win—and she wins every time.

10/17/14 10:13 PM Ebola reporting by Ontario

Hi all,

If you hear of anyone in your city/town getting Ebola can you post it under this thread. I trust forum members more than any news.

All is perfectly well in Sudbury Ontario.

Yours truly,
James

10/16/14 04:06 AM What would you pick for your survival kit? by ATN

Let's say you're in a Tom Hanks situation like in his movie, Cast Away. What would you pick for a survival kit where you are stranded on a deserted island for an extended period of time? You have the following limitations:

1. The survival kit must be in a container (backpack, fanny pack, etc).

2. The whole survival kit (container, food, water, etc) has a maximum weight of 25 pounds.

3. Your maximum budget for the survival kit is 300 dollars.
