Yep, that was probably me, khandu. White GMC van with a "Redefeat Bush!" bumpersticker? But, errr... I was drivin' on I-65 at the time, not I-55. That would mean you were prancin' around buck-nekkid about a hundred miles to the wrong side of the Mississippi/Alabama line. Better watchit, Bub. I wasn't kiddin' about that "Your Kingship stops at the state line" stuff. Ain't no tellin' what those Alabama State Troopers might be prone to do with a skinny nekkid white boy.

Re Tempurpedic:

Coming from Alaska, my fear with those body hugging contour jobs is that if you hop into one in a cold room, you will bounce off its cold hardened surface, and have to 'burn' your way in.

Not believing in electric blankets, I've always relished the leap into a cold, but SOFT situation with plenty of insulation, then providing the body heat necessary to obtain comfort.

Long ago I read about a small town in California where they had devised some linguistic oddities. One of them was 'rickychow', their word for sex. Can you put that together with the purpose of this thread and figure out why?

I really don't see what the point of this thread is. It was started by His Majesty khandu, King of All Mississippi. He is the King, for God's sake! Why should he worry about whether or not the bedsprings squeak? He can get butt-naked and screw in the middle of Interstate 55 in broad daylight if he wants to and nobody can do or say anything about it 'cause he's the KING!

Just don't try that kinda stuff in Arkansas or Tennessee, Kenny boy. You're just another guy when you cross that state line.

BBC, you're out beyond us. This discussion isn't about the comfort of sleeping ON the bed AFTER the fact. This is about what to do about the squeak when it happens and the types of beds that inhibit or enable the energetic activity that causes the squeak in the first place!

Au contraire, in my experience. Waterbeds provided comfortable support for a heavier partner &, as an added benefit, allowed me to sleep on my stomach till I was 8 months pregnant! Also nice that they are warm in the winter.

Khandu, are you sure it's German? Bed manufacturers in Mittenvald have been known to stick labels under the mattress provenancing the truckle as made in Cremona, where the very Stradivarius of night furniture have long been manufactured. Chances are that you could have a genuine Amati Bed Company classic on your hands, which is old enough to have springs that have rusted from the steam of night soil convecting from the carpet vase. I can't believe that you are still using such a valuable asset for its original purpose. You can play on a cheap Chinese bed and still get squeaks. I understand it's all in the wrist.

Probably not a good solution.

Waterbeds develop a tidal action that seems to counter your efforts--I don't like 'em. I'd rather have a head-banger squeaky bed than a waterbed.

Fixed one once by lubricating the hog-rings that attach the mesh to the frame. Vaseline/Petroleum jelly. Well, it was already in the room.
I imagine it would make a mess of the underside of the mattress, but it was an emergency.

CRC is a penetrating oil. The trouble with penetrating oils is that they keep spreading until there's nothing left where you want the lubrication, it is all over the earth.



Husband. "What are you doing under my bed?"

Strange Man. "Just oiling your hog-rings, mate. Fixing the window next."
