My daughter drove to Missouri to get her rescue dog.

The only things she could find closer were aggressive breeds, which she did not want. But, she's not a bubba.

Being in front in any race is a good thing.

That's just not right these days. Tell them to lighten up or you'll take your case to TikTok.

Real road crit. Itís at Langley speedway, so literally around a big circle.

I did one of those back in my racing days. It was weird.

New vinyl rig installed. This gear was my step-dad's, and is in excellent condition. Top-of-the-line (in 1980) JVC turntable and Yamaha receiver with Klipsch speakers. It sounds quite nice.

When was the last time you were out on the tracks?

It's been years. I got to drive the Hi-Rail back then. While passing through a relatively isolated area of NJ there was a tiny fox running along the railhead in front of us and the skeletal remains of some small creature between the tracks. it had obviously been there for some time because the bones were bright white. We also went by the Naval Weapons Station at Earle, NJ. The place is so big it has its own private railroad inside where they store munitions. You can see a big yard and tracks branching out into the woods:

Sweet!

When I got back into the vinyl some years ago, my daughter (a digital age child) expressed surprise that there was music recorded on both sides of the "disc."

Next up - cars with wind up windows.

Ten years later superior sound could be had for a far lower price. #Technology

Haven't high-railed, but have ridden in a locomotive. Had a death case when I was a ute, and were out measuring sight lines and distances. Pretty cool riding in one, but would not want to do it for a living.

There is a reason you can get one of those for $15.

I have a Sony almost exactly like that Jvc. 10 cd disk changer, dual cassette and am/fm radio. I have a Blue tooth stereo receiver that I plan on installing into one of the cassette tape decks one of these days. I watched a video on youtube....YouTube.... looks simple....

Both of my daughters (23 and 17) have their own vinyl rigs, and have enjoyed getting new records on gifting occasions. Parent win! That said, the younger one has adopted the CD player from her granddad's collection of gear, and has been playing her only CD - Pearl Jam "Ten". She was talking yesterday about a concept for a CD rack she wants to build, so there is apparently an intent to expand her collection. There are also 2 decent Sony cassette player/recorders and an equalizer that need a place. Personally, I love the simplicity of my setup (which includes a bluetooth receiver on the AUX input), and will stick with what I've got.

Nope, I'm all on-board digital photography. It allows me to keep myself looking young in pictures.

Why didn't I think if that? It would make my races so much simpler!

Gawd, that's ugly. I'm not a fan of the BPC* look. Not a chance that thing is going to live in my house.

My family room system is simple, but it's not. It's simple in the fact that it is just an AVR, DirectTV box, BlueRay (that we never use), turntable, TV and speakers, all controlled with a Harmony remote. It's not simple because about every three weeks the system loses the WiFi connection and we can't stream, so we have to hard power down to get everything to reboot. Of course, that only happens when my wife has the remote in her hands.

Only at the end. Otherwise you're doing everyone else's work for them.

There are still many some fans, but the ability to take a couple test shots and make adjustments on the fly is priceless.
