    Shade Tree Mechanics

    One of my "hobbies" is keeping my dated fleet of vehicles road worthy at the least possible cost. The latest effort in this series involved replacing the starter of my 2001 Toyota Tundra pickup (See shitty photo below). The vehicle, at the most inopportune times would fail to start. Turn the...

    Free Books: Mostly Non-Fiction

    Kulkas i.e. Refrigerator -- Need a Replacement

    Our 10 year old LG is still chugging along, but the freezer side (its a side-by-side) around the ice/water dispenser is rusting away. I put a decal around the dispenser a couple of years ago, but that's now about to bubble off. Besides the rust, the ice maker shot craps just before we arrived...

    On one leg of our two week vacation tour of a few of Indonesia's many attractions, we will be flying into Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS). There seems to be a fair share of horror online stories focusing on getting a reasonable rate on airport to hotel transfers. Our hotel...

    Bali Ubud Hotel Suggestions

    We are hoping to include a few days in Bali while in-country this summer. The last time we were there in 2014, we stayed at the Green Field Hotel on Jl. Pengosekan on the edge of Ubud. It was just fine and not too expensive, as well as close enough for us to walk to most of the Ubud attractions...

    Mt Bromo Trekking Advise

    As part of our visit this summer, we are thinking of hiking to the Mount Bromo summit for the sunrise view. We would like to avoid the tour packages, especially those that drive groups to the summit, if at all possible. I have read that there are gates and a $30 change for those doing the 1 and...

    Shingles (Zostavax or Shingrix) & Tetanus/Diphtheria (Boostrix) Vaccine

    I had my annual physical a few days ago. Among other things, it was suggested that I get several vaccinations including a shingles inoculation and a TD booster, both of which are not covered by Medicare. The booster is a manageable $30, but the shingles shot in the USA costs $200 to $350...

    Three Killed as Truck Rams Walmart Entrance in Pella, Iowa

    I thought the Forum might be interested to learn that not all multiple death incidents in America involve terrorism. Pella, Iowa, is my home town these days. This is a quiet, safe place that is almost never in the news. Today is different. An old man in a Ford F-150 crew-cab pickup rammed...

    Iphone Screen lines

    My daughter's Iphone 5 has developed a series of fine vertical lines. Everything else works fine and screen copy is still readable -- it is just annoying and an impediment to game playing. She swears she did not drop it or get it wet, but the phone may have gotten overly hot during our recent...

    Something Old, Something New, Something ...

    Migrating from the other place, I frustratingly found that I was unable to contribute. (Had to wonder, "Could ExpatIndo be as glitchy as recent experience?") Until that is, I checked my email to find that one additional click was required to activate the privilege of providing, through this...
