How the Loss of the Landline
Is Changing Family Life

My tween will never know the sound of me calling her name from another room after the phone rings. She'll never sit on our kitchen floor, refrigerator humming in the background, twisting a cord around her finger while talking to her best friend. I'll get it, He's not here right now, and It's for you are all phrases that are on their way out of the modern domestic vernacular. According to the federal government, the majority of American homes now use cellphones exclusively. “We don't even have a landline anymore,” people began to say proudly as the new millennium progressed. But this came with a quieter, secondary loss—the loss

I keep my land line. It will still work when the power it out. ATT has separate gensets and large 48 volt battery systems to keep it all running independent of central power.......or at least they did. Maybe they have ripped it out.

The only thing that downs a properly designed "POTS" (Plane Old Telephone System) is a major earthquake - too many open circuits, during the PG&E PSPS Cell sites started to shutdown - I still have a land line.

We still have our land line. Don't use it but it's good to have in case the power goes down.

When we moved three years ago we had a landline installed in our new home. If I think I'll be on the phone more than a few minutes, I'll reach for the landline because I much prefer the sound quality: no drop outs, no garble, etc. Alas the nuisance calls were unrelenting. While there are ways to deal with those blasted auto-dialers, none were completely satisfactory and we eventually had our cherished landline shut down. Both Verizon and ATT despise the old technology and want it to die. I'll bet they each own a few auto-dialers of their own.

All of the Junk Calls coming over the Land Line Phone is what has killed that system. For the last year we have had all the ringers turn off on all of our extensions. Until then, the phone would ring constantly. We only used the Land Line for some outgoing calls. So just last week we converted to full streaming internet and completely discontinued Land Line Phone Service.

No love lost. I hated when the land line was tied up by one family member. Or you had to hang around the phone waiting for an important call.

We still have a land line mainly for security: On numerous occassions we have picked up cell phone conversations while listening to the radio. Perhaps technology has improved enough to prevent this; perhaps not. But if I have to give out sensitive information over the phone, I never do it on my cell.

We've kept our landline, too. But, I've lived through so many years of telephones that I remember when the phone company was a family in town and the wife handled all the incoming and outgoing calls. Then, a few years later, at the farm we had an 8-party line and one sweet neighbor who was known to listen in on everything. My mother cautioned us to bear Mrs. Hays' listening ears in mind when we talked. Our signal was a long and two shorts.

For over 26 years, I cared for my cancer-patient mom; she was resilient and positive. But I took no chances, and always called her often in the day. Years ago, on a winter night in Texas, my mobile phone died --- the phone, the tower, the signals, all dead. It was a holiday week and I had been monitoring my mom. Thankfully, the landline was working and I was able to reach her. Since that episode, I refuse to get rid of it. Although I don't answer it much, it's a back-up, and better for my peace of mind.

We still have ours as a back-up. Never answered due to the nuisance calls unless it's someone we know. That's rare now. Like most of us, of course, I am getting robocalls on my cell phone now so I am not sure where all this is going. If it's not stopped then 80% of our calls will be sales calls.

Our landline (yes, we're "boomers") is only ~$20/month. BUT we do have quite a nice net worth/ These young people who will make fun of landlines and boomers are dirt poor even tho they pay a lot for their phones and service. I'll take that trade off.

Astonishingly, cell phone service mostly remained functioning in Manhattan on September 11. I now live farther north and the power goes out a few times a year because of trees hitting lines. The cell phone system continues to work. The discussion of landlines is enjoyable nostalgia but I don't miss being tethered to a wire or having to wait in a specific location for someone to call me or paying astonishing amounts for long distance or even more astonishing amounts for zone calls within the state.

#15; We lived about 55 miles west of Manhattan on 9-11. I couldn't get a dial tone for hours on the landline - no cell service for me then. Not because of any downed wires or failures, but because the phone system is designed by probability that not everyone will go off-hook at the same time and require the line equipment.. It's uneconomical to engineer for a worst-case scenario all the time.

I kept my land line for several reasons. One, if you have to call 911 your address pops up in the 911 system with a land line. With a cell phone you have to give them your address and their GPS might take them to the wrong place. Second, there is a recorder on my land line where doctors, drug stores, etc can leave messages. I want to minimize the number of voice mails I get on the cell. Third, I like having toys. The land line costs $ 50 a month but I've got the 50 bucks.

Adults can easily justify giving their kids cell phones by having the kids available for communication at all times while away from home but the downside has been devastating. Some kids never put them down, either engaged in useless chatter and texts with friends or watching Youtube videos created by vulgar British teenagers. Phone-addicted kids don't read any more which will severely detract from their adult lives. Limitations should always be used but they can easily be ignored. I have one grandson who sneaks the phone into bed and can't get up in the morning due to lack of sleep. I have a five-year-old grandson who lives with a phone one foot from his face all day long. That can't be healthy.

Not to worry, #1! Recent PG&E power outageS during our California winds/firestorms only confirmed that my good old landline was functioning just fine! (When I was alone in the cold and the dark, I could at least still talk with my sons.) I don't plan to ever give it up during my lifetime.

My landline is IP based. No choice in the matter. SO, if the interface card goes down I'm out of luck. At home I have to use a microcell..no longer supported by AT$T. My cell phone, although up to date, can not load the digital voice AT$T requires. Point is, LL doesn't have any special meaning anymore.

BROWNSVILLE, Texas -- Salvador Castillo was yearning for tranquility when he became enchanted by a one-acre homestead close -- but not too close -- to the city, a place where cows graze beneath whispering mesquite trees on the property's edge. Castillo, an Afghanistan war veteran, and his wife bought the home using military benefits and grew their family into their new neighborhood -- about half a mile from a bend in the Rio Grande. They never imagined a border wall could dissect their property someday. But the first letter, stamped with an official government seal, arrived about a year ago.

On Monday, December 9, New Zealand's White Island volcano erupted seemingly without warning. Within two minutes, a violent cloud of steam, ash, and rock—called a pyroclastic density current—tumbled down the volcano’s flank. A cloud of volcanic ash stretched thousands of feet into the sky. At the time the volcano erupted—just after 2:00 p.m. local time—47 tourists were scattered along the crater’s edge and down the volcano’s slopes. At press time, eight people have been confirmed dead, 28 are currently being treated, and nine are missing or presumed dead.

Joe Biden Still Can’t Answer Basic
Questions About Hunter and Burisma

Posted by StormCnter 12/12/2019 7:50:04 AM Post Reply
When Joe Biden was America’s point man for Ukraine policy, an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, started paying his son Hunter $50,000 a month to sit on its board. By Hunter’s own account — and that of another board member — Hunter would never have been offered this lucrative gig had he not been the son of the U.S. vice-president. There is no evidence that Hunter ever lobbied his father on Burisma’s behalf, and the elder Biden reportedly made life harder for his son’s employer by helping to oust a Ukrainian prosecutor who’d taken a hands-off approach to corruption. But this much is beyond dispute:

As a former U.S. attorney general, I am reluctant to publicly criticize my successors. I respect the office and understand just how tough the job can be. But recently, Attorney General William P. Barr has made a series of public statements and taken actions that are so plainly ideological, so nakedly partisan and so deeply inappropriate for America’s chief law enforcement official that they demand a response from someone who held the same office. Last month, at a Federalist Society event, the attorney general delivered an ode to essentially unbridled executive power, dismissing the authority of the legislative and judicial branches — and the checks

In March 1933, Herman J. Mankiewicz, a respected Hollywood screenwriter and producer, took a leave of absence from Metro Goldwyn Mayer to write a screenplay about Adolf Hitler. The former New York newspaperman, playwright, theater critic, and Algonquin Table habitué was known for his sophistication and irreverent wit. But Mankiewicz was also deeply political, and as he watched the Nazis tighten their stranglehold on Germany, he understood the implications and felt he had to act. Abandoning his usual ironic detachment, he wrote The Mad Dog of Europe in a desperate attempt to awaken the American public to the danger of Hitler’s rise to power. ie

Harvey Weinstein’s bail was increased from $1 million to $5 million on Wednesday over allegations he violated bail conditions by mishandling his electronic ankle monitor. But Judge James Burke rejected prosecution calls to put the disgraced movie mogul in jail over the alleged violation. Weinstein, 67, arrived at court in the morning using a walker, and his lawyer said he will be undergoing back surgery on Thursday. In his last court appearance, he hobbled into court and looked more pained than usual. On Wednesday, Burke warned that he would revoke his bail and issue a warrant for his arrest if other issues crop up.

The analysis of the report by Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz greatly depends, as is often the case, on which cable news channel you watch. Indeed, many people might be excused for concluding that Horowitz spent 476 pages to primarily conclude one thing, which is that the Justice Department acted within its guidelines in starting its investigation into the 2016 campaign of President Trump. Horowitz did say that the original decision to investigate was within the discretionary standard of the Justice Department. That standard for the predication of an investigation is low, simply requiring “articulable facts.” He said that, since this is a low discretionary standard,

New York Supreme Court Justice Barry Ostrager said the state failed to prove that Exxon violated the Martin Act, a broad state law that does not require proof of intent of shareholder fraud. “The office of the Attorney General failed to prove, by a preponderance of the evidence, that ExxonMobil made any material misstatements or omissions about its practices and procedures that misled any reasonable investor,”

Begin with the premise that there’s no good way for presidential candidate Joe Biden to address the issues that arose from his son Hunter’s work for Burisma Holdings. The former vice president isn’t going to throw his son under the bus, and Hunter can’t resign from his position as a Biden offspring. In mid-October, Hunter Biden did a defiant television interview, declaring he had “no regrets” about anything he did with Burisma. Joe Biden can’t contradict his son and admit that Hunter shouldn’t have taken the position on the company board. Wherever you stand on the political spectrum, you have to pity Hunter Biden.

The British and Canadians took Brussels on Sept. 3, 1944, and entered Antwerp the next day while American units crossed the German frontier near Charlemagne’s old capital of Aachen.

Perhaps if Democrats would momentarily shelve their obsession with Donald Trump, they’d comprehend the staggering abuse of power they’re defending these days. Because much of Tuesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing with DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz was jaw-dropping. Horowitz’s testimony, in fact, sounded little like the media depiction of the IG report only the day before. Most major outlets had stressed that the IG had found no bias in the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. But failing to uncover explicit instances of bias and exonerating the FBI aren’t the same thing. Worse, most of the media had buried the lede.
