Then why does your credit card need out of the country approval?
Maybe I misread it. Out of the county perhaps.

Do or die for the Owls. OWLmaha? SMH

Our Cap One and Citi cards don't need pre-approval for foreign travel since they are chipped. In fact, both companies said they won't even do it.

Surprise flight?

I passed by the House of Hotrods on my morning ride, and they were having a car show. Some pretty cool stuff on display. Even some baggers layin frame.

Lots of cargo shorts and Bud t-shirts. I felt a bit out of place being the only one in spandex and walking toes up. My gut felt right at home though.

What I said about the '70s and music also applies to cars. And most other things.

Hopefully you won't have any crew issues.

That was a fun ride. The weather and pace were just right.

A person whose sole contact with the automotive industry is owning an ancient Honda Accord shall not be considered authoritative on any subject touching on cars.

Currently at a Lego-centric workshop for my son's bday party for his friends. One thing is clear: it was a very good idea not to have a dozen 11-year-old boys in our house. :twitchy:

Our Cap1 card requires a USA phone number to get into the account. Living in a global world and all that rot.

I think his concern was about his ATM card in case he needed cash and would be in remote areas of Maine without cell service.

genejockey 06-04-22 02:12 PM

Did the monthly C&V ride today, this time without my co-leader. Faster group than usual, or maybe more uniform in speed. 27 or so miles (didn't use a head unit on this ride). I took Mrs. Peel, first ride since November. I'd forgotten just what a sweet bike it is. Fast, comfy, handles my 200# without a whimper, shifts pretty well for old school friction. I'm not sure how well it would handle a fast technical descent, but apart from that, a very nice bike! Just confirms my belief that if it was a good bike BITD, and it's working now like it did then, it's STILL a good bike, even if there are better bikes.

I did not, in fact, move around the house. Seems I have one day a week during which I just have to relax. Relax from what, though?

But he's still in the country. They don't cross state lines now?

Seeds, see below. I hope this helps.

I call my bank to put a travel alert on my card. The woman with whom I speak with sounds like she's in high school. I emphasize that this needs to work because I may be in places where I need to use an ATM and have no cell service to report a locked card. She enthusiastically tells me she is going to give me a confirmation number so I can call and yell at someone if my card gets locked. WTH. I felt compelled to tell her that listening is an important part of being a customer service agent.
