It was 124F riding near Arrowhead Town Center. All those parking lots really helps to heat things up. By the time I got to the Beardsley/101 area, it was down to 119F.

Thanks!!

We donít have an inspection contingency, so so long as there isnít anything super costly (like a new roof) we should be good to go. This is a very abnormal buying experience. Our realtor really isnít involved and all of the conversation about the sale is between us and the owners. We just spent an hour talking to them in their driveway because they were outside while we walked the dogs by.

It appears likely I will lose that fingernail. I guess it makes sense. You don't really want a used fingernail on a new finger. The last fingernail I lost---the fingertip found its way between a recently slabbed log and the steel guide for rolling it--- came back to be better than the one it replaced. And it remains the strongest fingernail in my possession.

So how does that work? They still gettin' a cut? I guess that would be between them and the seller? :foo:

I bought a cheap fridge in 1992 and had to replace it 3 years ago. So 25 years and 5 moves including being dragged up and down stairs. The washer I bought at the same time only lasted about 20 years until the agitator started coming apart.

I wish the Everesting made for good TV.

In other news, saw this while out this morning:

I wish the power lines weren’t there, but it was maybe two minutes of this before it became very mundane.

Yah, she gets 2.5% because we have a contract with her. Iím hoping she does the right thing and gives us a hefty visa gift card since weíre doing all of the work.

I have a high degree of expressed control, so this is fine with me.

For us it was all minor things, and the seller fixed everything the next day. The list was about 35 ish items, which was shocking but again stuff like light bulbs. The other houses we saw were in terrible shape. I donít even want to think about how those inspections would have gone.

Nice.

Are you a Lightroom person? The content aware cloning might take care of those lines and posts pretty quickly.

Yeah, but that's typically paid out of the seller's proceeds, no? Or are you paying 2.5% on the side?

The YouTubes algorithm fed me this one and I can't stop laughing. Poor Velo Vol

One of my favorite things about sunrise and sunset, they're such an accessible way to become acutely aware of the planet's rotation. That and trying to keep an object within the field of view of a telescope.

Lovely picture.

just put what the sign said. Itís pretty close to the hotel, had to walk through cornell to get to it. All the bridges above the falls have nets under them to help stop the college kids killing themselves.

If you're in Ithaca, you need to go find Taughannock Falls. And take the rim trail that goes around the top of the gorge. You can thank me later.

Well.. it comes from the proceeds, but Iím technically the one paying it since I probably could have knocked about that much off of the sale price without a realtor.
