    I still do that. I buy my minutes at a local supermarket, which is enough for about 3 months.

    I use to keep my old Nokia in my car for emergencies, like yourself, but I don't do that with my new smartphone, specially to protect it's data from the heat over the summer.

    My old flip phone had been repaired with JB Weld, but I managed to break it again, so it was barely hanging together.

    Re: Post Race!

    I'm so cheap that I don't pay for navigation in my car. Not that I need it much. If I'm heading into unknown territory or a long enough drive to worry about detours navigation assistance can be helpful.

    Instead I just plot the route via Google Maps on the PC, and send it to my phone. Then turn on the phone using home WiFi and accept the map data as an "offline map."

    Then I can plug the phone into the car, and via Android Auto I can get maps and even turn by turn voice prompts as I go. Usually I leave it set so the map shows on the infotainment display and the turn information pops up on the "instrument display" behind the steering wheel within the arc of the tachometer scale just below the digits of the speedometer.

    I'm so cheap that I don't even do THAT. I just drive. If I get there, I get there.

    Yeah, I hear that. If I could have left more gadgets off the car and saved money I would have. Fancy electronics are another point of failure anyway, and can cost enough to fix that this is probably something that can sideline an aging car before its time.

    I remember when my in-car navigation was a book of county-level maps supplemented by road maps for adjacent states and provinces. Updating those every 4 to 6 years was pretty inexpensive or even free.

    To long without a post.

    Man, we've went from highs of 114 to the highs in the low 70's. I like the 70's much better. Come to think about it, I liked the 70's Show. Coincidence??? I don't think so!!!!

    ESPN's Scott Van Pelt uses "I like turtles" sound bite during his shows a lot. Wonder if that's where he got it.

    Oh absolutely! That was one of the OG viral videos, back when it was spread via MySpace and people were told to go to google.com to search it (and not told to simply “Google it”).

    This one made me laugh. Trump says

    “Were they looking for the Hillary Clinton emails that were deleted, but they are around someplace?”
    And

    he was able to declassify documents just by “thinking about it.”
    That brightened up my day, thanks Donald.

    When it comes to sculpin, 'enormous' is a relative term.

    Actually, that is true for all types of fish. Sculpin are just small.

    And as a public service I'd like to remind Browns fans that there is no drinking allowed in the Muni lot. Strictly enforced!

    Brownie never really left the scene, he just went underground and unofficial after Art Modell (spit) bought the team and got rid of him. You know, being the advertising genius that everyone said he thought he was.

    How could they NOT allow drinking at Browns games? How else are the fans supposed to get through the games???

    They beat the Steelers but not without some drama at the end.

    Was glad to see that. But without Watt the Steelers are at best an average team.

    Unfortunately, they are both just average teams. The Browns never fail to disappoint.

    Re: Post Race!

    I just painted one of my toes...well, the end of the toe, and it was with liquid bandage. That toe has never fully healed up from some damage I did to it this summer, so now I'm trying something new. Conventional bandages caused it to heal mostly, but not entirely. Soaking it for days on end didn't help it heal any, either, but it's getting annoying. Doggone hard to bandage a toe all that well, so now I'm trying liquid bandage.

    Smells like nail polish, though. Same solvent, I suppose.

    Have you been seeing a Dr.? If it's an ulcer, then open toe shoes and getting it to dry out, form a layer of skin and then start building from there. Just make sure to avoid an infection. I know a lot of people with SCI's and ulcers (or pressure sores) are common. They can be simple but turn very serious.

    Re: Post Race!

    It started out as a blister. It almost entirely healed, but never quite finished. Drying it out was getting me so close...and then I went out and walked up streams for a week, or so. Then I did it again...and again...and again. My feet haven't had a real chance to dry out since sometime back in August. They get a couple days, then I'm back in the water. At least I should be done with that for the year, so it can finally dry.

    Was watching a show about a girl in the UK that had been murdered. The officer described the suspect as an Asian man. He was from India.

    Is that really how people in the UK describe people from India? I've never heard that description used here in the US. I realize India is part of Asia but it just struck me as odd.

    Yes. Commonwealth Pidgin more than superficially resembles English but isn't exactly the same language. Divergence seems to have begun under George IV (The Fop King). People remaining under the thumb of the monarchy slavishly began to imitate his attempts at English as a second language.

    I wonder if the UK also refer to Russians and Iranians as Asian.

    I think storing up nuts for the winter is pretty big across all Europe right now.
