  1. This is crazy. You go to either Galveston or South Padre Island and there are all these kitsch images of sharks on stores, restaurants, boardwalks, etc. Then, when I was last there, I called a seafood restaurant to see if they had shark on the menu. It can be tasty - I have had thrasher shark in California several times. The lady told me that, in Texas, it is illegal to offer commercially fished shark to restaurant patrons. So, you can't eat the shark ... and this is in Texas, a state with a big emphasis on guns and hunting, and liberties like that. How about passin

  2. Yeah...I see that! When I was younger, I had constant nose bleeds. (When the climate be too dry). My mom took me to the doctor and he shove this tall match like thing up my nose to lessen the nose bleeds. I had done that 3 or 4 times. So the feeling of having a test swab shoved up my nose was not a new thing for me. The pleasant surprise was there was no burning sensation as it was with a nose bleed. But yeah...doing THAT daily would definitely not be a thing Id like to do! PS: Thanx to your wife for staying tough and helping us all out! Health workers have ALWAYS been import

  3. Its freakin' cold here today. No snow fall since the last time we chit chatted, but the temps sure did dip. We just came back from our Covid testing. Not as bad as people make it out to be. We'll get our results in 24 hours about.

  6. There is nothing stopping them from adding a sedan or larger SUV. I know they're not in the sedan/car market anymore but if the market shifts again, these EV skateboard platforms can just change the body to a car. We don't even know what a "real" Cybertruck will look like because everybody with a brain knows what they showed off will need drastic changes to even be street legal.

  10. Not much going down here in NE Ohio..cloudy and 23F today, had the coldest night of the year so far w/ about 19F last night (nothing like the polar vortex lows 2 years ago at this time). Supposed to get snow flurries today and some later this week...been a pretty mild January. On my job search, got about 2 weeks left on my current gig...been through 2nd interviews at two places, had a couple 1st interviews...in talking w/ recruiters late on Friday it sounds like offers may be coming Mon-Tues on a couple of them.. decisions, decisions..both companies in the fin tech space, one a contrac

  11. OUCH Porsche pricing for the Panamera is Crazy. While the base still starts at $88,550, prices for options have jumped considerably and if you want the Panamera Turbo SE Hybrid Executive edition, that will start at $190,450 and run up from there. 19 different trim levels from base to the Executive edition on top of a crazy assortment of woods, leathers, etc. Seems maybe Porsche is looking to go Rolls Royce for their top of the line sedan? 2021 Porsche Panamera pricing is here, so gird your wallet - Roadshow (cnet.com) R.I.P. in piece Shop-Vac, a company the Pandemic took in Sept

  13. Continuing the old Ohio photos themes, here are some pics from Put-in-Bay, a neat little town I like on South Bass Island in Lake Erie. They are known for vintage car races, from the 40s to today.

  14. Episodes 6 and 7 on Sandy Munro's road trip are not worthy of a posting. Episode 7 is both funny and cringe. BUT...Episode 5 on his tear down of the Model 3 is a must to be viewed. What I got from this small window: Tesla is learning to engineering cars and to manufacture them, but they are improving at a snail's pace. The Model Y is an example of how Tesla could be all across the board, yet on the 2021 Model 3, they havent fully embraced the improvements. The production of the 2021 Model 3 is an improvement over the 2018 version, but not enough. The Model Y

  17. Steubenville, Ohio (I lived there 1971-1981) Below: Port Washington, Ohio (grew up about a mile outside of town, my family has had property there since 1968). Old pic of the railroad and Ohio & Erie Canal. Port Washington elementary school--- I went there 1977-1984, my sister went there 1968-1971 when my Dad was the district superintendent. Torn down around 2000 replaced w/ a new school.

  18. Emissions standards all over the world after 2030 or 2035 say otherwise for ANY internal combustion engine. Im all for the Corvette to retain its V8 engine as long as its possible. Until its V8 cant pass emissions any longer. If by any chance, ICE engineers can somehow engineer a V8 (not JUST any ICE like a 4 banger, but a V8... Corvette, right?) to pass the inevitable highly impossible emissions, then Ill be ecstatic about a V8 Corvette in a EV world. But lets not kid ourselves here.... Pie in the sky scenarios aside, I hope we all understand that the world no longer wants the ICE.

  19. I would even recommend that one should open all the windows in the car with All the Hot Air coming from the orifices of certain immediate objects inside that are melting...snow in the forecast.

  20. I believe that recommendation is for the scenario where you are in an untrusted car with randos (like an Uber ride, taxi ride, ride in the back of a police car, etc) or you are in your own car with randos or other resource units not in your immediate household.

  23. I’m not usually a big fan of snow. But it has been kinda snow free here as well. I think I would be okay with one good old fashioned snow storm. Only catch is the snow can’t hang around too long, as it would help being that polar vortex down. But for a few days, the snow would be calming and kinda refreshing...

  25. I forgot to mention: My daughter did not hang around that boy because she thinks he is stupid. All of his friends too. She also said that he had missed the last 2 school days. There are several good news to this: 1. Is that she hasnt had any symptoms for at least that many days and even longer... Could be that she is asymptomatic, but if she has it and now I and the other members of our family have it, well, we havent showed signs of Covid either. 2. Is that she thinks that boys are stupid. She is 15 and quite smart and quite cute. I also know that she thinks that most boy

  26. E5 of Sandy Munro's road trip He says he barely squeezed in a charging point and that there were only two spots available. Im curious now more than ever to find about his battery and range details... He also said that his wife asked him to eat better food other than gas station hot dogs. LOL. He also hinted that he took a look at a Faraday Future and he said that its a nice car and he is impressed by it. Nothing else was said about it but he will go into detail about it later on.

  28. Model Y & Mach-E GT are both supposed to do 0-60 in 3.5 secs. But here's the deal: 1. both are plenty quick enough, 2. NOBODY is drag racing these against each other for prize money, and 3. the quickest vehicle in a given segment is almost never the highest sought-after. In other words; a few tenths is meaningless unless it's a competition vehicle (which these aren't). Tesla's biggest problem is stale styling and over-pricing (the company still loses money selling cars). They can charge whatever until competition starts heating up, then the probability they're F'd rises

  29. If... and I stress IF there wasn't a nation-wide pandemic and unprecedented issues with foreclosures/ evictions, unemployment/ebbing income tax revenues, bankruptcies/ fleeing businesses, withering industries begging for lifelines... MAYBE the Gov't could simply double the $560,000,000 of paper money they print DAILY and pay for many of these pie-inna-sky dream projects. I just don't see where the money would come from. I mean, it's on the order of $125 Billion just for the school bus dream... and the states don't even own all those buses (private companies & individual contractors are a m

  30. Mach-E has a better ride, Apple/Android car play, more amenities and much better quality for a much cheaper price. Ford is the better buy vs. the Model Y.
