Yada yada yada...I’m all for paying my fair share when the fat cats start paying theirs. Not only are those businesses not in my state, but sales tax is one of the most regressive taxes there is. Really I pay taxes all the time. If there were a decent camera shop near by I would use it. Adorama and B&H are more convenient and good to deal with.

you said it........

Only someone from the Phoenix area would understand this, and the really funny thing is that this is all so true!

1. 'Phoenix' actually consists of Scottsdale, Chandler, Tempe, Mesa,Gilbert, Glendale, Peoria, Tolleson, Avondale, Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Buckeye, Sun City, Sun City West, Sun City Grand, Sun Lakes, Surprise, Laveen, Youngtown, Apache Junction, Gold Canyon, and half of the Mexican border.

2. The morning rush hour is from 4:00 am to noon. The evening rush hour is from noon to 9:00 PM. Friday's rush hour starts on Thursday morning.

3. The minimum acceptable speed on most freeways is 85 mph. On Loop 101, your speed is expected to match the highway number. Anything less is considered 'wussy'.

4. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. For example: cars/trucks with the loudest mufflers go first at a four-way stop; the trucks with the biggest tires go second. However, in the East Valley, SUV-driving cell phone-talking moms ALWAYS have the right of way.

5. If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear ended.

6. Never honk at anyone. Ever. Seriously. It's an offense that can get you shot.

7. Road construction is permanent in Phoenix. Detour barrels are moved around for your entertainment during the night to make the next day's driving a bit more exciting.

8. Watch carefully for road hazards such as drunks, dogs, barrels,cones, cats, mattresses, shredded tires, rabbits, vultures, javelinas,roadrunners, and the coyotes feeding on any of these items.

9. Maricopa Freeway, Papago Freeway and the 'I-10' are the same road.
SR202 is the same road as The Red Mountain Freeway.
Dunlap and Olive are the same street too.
Northern and Shea are the same street.
Also Glendale Avenue becomes Lincoln Drive.
Jefferson becomes Washington, but they are not the same street.
I-17 is also called The Black Canyon Freeway as well as The Veterans Memorial Highway.
The Superstition Freeway is also known as US 60.
The 101, 202 and 303 remain a large mystery to most of us.
It is not yet determined if there is a Red Mountain and a San Tan orjust a Red/Tan Mountain.
The SR51 has recently been renamed to Piestewa Freeway because Squaw Peak Parkway was too easy to pronounce.
SR101 is also the Pima Freeway except west of I-17, where it is known as the Agua Fria Freeway. The I-17 is the Black Canyon Freeway and The Veteran’s Memorial Highway.
Lastly, Thunderbird Road becomes Cactus Road but, Cactus Road doesn't become Thunderbird Road because it dead ends at a mountain.

10. If someone actually has their turn signal on, it has been 'accidentally activated.'

11. If you are in the left lane and only driving 70 in a 55 mph zone,you are considered a road hazard and will be 'flipped off' accordingly. If you return the flip, you'll be shot.

12. For summer driving, it is advisable to wear potholders on your hands.

13. Please note that there are many, many more issues to the phenomenon of driving in Phoenix -- like the 4-cars-through-a-red-light rule -- but these will at least get you acquainted with our unique life on the road.

How many of you people ENJOY playing that "I AM NOT A ROBOT" game to be able to enter certain aps? They give you 20 tiny little squares and just a few seconds to see if there's a: storefront, crosswalk, bus, street light, bicycle,dog turd etc. and most of the time it's a terrible shot and you can barely see anything!!! How bout the street lights? Do they just want the light itself or the whole structure? What the hell is the idea of that thing anyway? To get you pissed off? Who invented it? The Marquis de Sade?

Its all about the generation. This generation doesn't want to read a book. They want audio books. They don't want paper reports, they want it electronically. They don't want photographs to hang on the wall they want digital photos on their phone or Ipad. I know this because I am 76 yrs old work in an office with this generation and I have great, great, grandchildren. Sad but true. Just enjoy their company while you can. I know that when I am gone and they are cleaning out my stuff they will most likely throw most of it out...again, sad but true...

When the NFL left St. Louis and trashed our city on the way out, I swore not to watch another game. I have to admit that having all this extra time has improved my life!

And exactly how many folks approaching the entry to the Holland Tunnel do not know what it is? This complaint is just one more example of stupid people making an issue out of nothing!

After upgrading my computer to a 2017 iMac (27in), I discovered my 2011 version of Microsoft Office will not run. I am looking to upgrade, and discovered that Microsoft Office has become very complicated. The latest versions appear to be 2016 and 2019 (soon to be released) and Office 365 which is subscription based. Both the 2016 and 2019 versions will not be supported after 2025. This is getting complicated.

I am a casual office user, and don't need the most expensive version. I have read about LibreOffice, which is free and seems to get good reviews.
I would like to hear from anyone who has tried LibreOffice. It is important that I can open my old Microsoft documents, so I would like to know if microsoft documents can be opened in LibreOffice.
Thanks Steve
