Late winter sun makes me crazy. I need a set of those Eskimo snow glasses, you know, the one with tiny slits in them, now that would be cool, and, they are cheap, so I got that going for me. ;D

Kind of like total consciousness on your death bed?  ;D

How is it that one needs to be super-intelligent to get into a school like UC Berkeley but it seems like none of their students are intelligent enough to look up from their phones while crossing the street? These kids walk right out into the street without looking where they're going, or checking traffic at all. Have they no sense of self-preservation? Ziggy is nimble enough to steer around such tomfoolery, but a 4000lb SUV isn't...

Same thing applies in grocery stores. 7 times in 3 days, someone has walked right into me because they weren't paying attention. In 3 of those cases, I just let it happen cause the dude was cute. Maybe it's not such a bad thing after all....  8)

'the dude was cute'?  :o  Well ok then, not that there's anything wrong with that...

I worked at a university for 30 years and in all that time at least once a year a student would walk out in front of a moving car and get creamed. Not only do they not pay attention but a great many of them don't know how to dress themselves for the cold weather either.

It is UC Berkley so do not confuse the ability to pass a written test with intelligence.   :rotflmao:

People/Groups that can't/won't sing our National Anthem the way the musical score meant it to be.
I can't sing worth a darn, but I don't try to do my own take on it, either.

So whose take do you like?  I rather imagine it's their take as well whether it's a band or some other singer.

I would like for the performers to sing it like we did in school and not make a show of it and add their flair to it. They've got plenty of other venues to 'express' themselves and not (IMHO) with our National Anthem. Some versions are almost unrecognizable.

I believe there are not near enough of us around that truly appreciate our National Anthem being performed with such respect and skill. Makes me sad..

Women telling me about a problem with a vehicle after they've heard noises for at least a week...

This takes place yesterday evening after dark...

Daughter - Dad, the van is making a noise when I use the brakes.
Me - How long has it been doing this?
Daughter - For a week now.
Me - Where's the noise coming from?
Daughter - The front of the car.
Me - Can you tell what side?
Daughter - No
Daughter - I need to get it inspected this month.
Me -  :censored:

I go outside and run the van around the block.  Noise coming from the passenger side front.  Metal sound on rotor.  Needs brakes.

Me - You do realized that if you would have told me this morning I could have had fixed by now.... :censored:

Me to Grandson - If you hear anything abnormal with a vehicle, let me know.

I don't know.  I'm getting the rotors just in case, but I usually replace them on a brake job anyway.  I find the pads are less noisy that way long term.
