    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Someone left their mark on my new car at the brewery a month or so ago. Right front fender but fortunately missed the head lights and electronics. Just under $1600 and in the body shop right now getting fixed. Add the cost of a rental car and of course the inconvenience.

    Mattresses

    Each manufacturer and retailer are different. I had a 30 day trial on my mattress. I used mattress underground as my primary resource which was great until the owner died. His wife now owns it and collects fees from manufacturers so the ratings are all skewed now.

    Mattresses

    I have a locally made spring mattress with a 2 inch latex topper. Love it. The springs give me the firm support I need (big fella for those who don't know) and the latex gives a pillow like top. Mattresses are such individual preferences and hard to compromise on if shared.

    Cube farm neighbor pissed off a coworker. He leaves on vacation. This is what he will come back to. Don't piss off your coworkers.

    I don't feel too bad for you. This is our roller coaster ride. Only in Michigan or the Great Lakes States

    HC Motorcycle Gang

    Sold my one and only bike about a dozen years ago. Getting the itch and have been looking at something to commute on and just have fun street riding. Maybe a weekend trip. Looking for a more upright riding geometry and more sport bike type responsiveness but touring bike comfort. Yea, there is no such thing but considering these bikes: Kawasaki Versys, Suzkui V Strom and a BMW F 800 GT. Haven't been for the all important test ride yet. So many bikes, so many niches. Stopped at two dealers today. Yin and yang. BMW sales person knowledgeable, good listener and had great advice. The Suzuki/Kawasaki sales person the polar opposite. Didn't know squat, ignored any thing I said and started with the biggest most expensive bike in the dealership which was a tricked out Gold Wing. Can't say as I remember that much from my riding days and really don't know much about bikes in the first place. At least it should be fun looking.

    Noise canceling headphones for portable DVD player

    Thanks Brent. I know literally nothing about noise cancelling headphones. Been reading but didn't see wirecutter. Thank You! Of course you don't know this grandson has a short arm (aka no hand) on the left. IEMs were my first thought but as talented as he is with one hand I couldn't see how that would work. I'll let me daughter know.

    Noise canceling headphones for portable DVD player

    Can't believe I'm resurrecting such an old thread. My 4 year old grandson needs noise cancelling headphones. Apparently he has issues with loud environments. I looked at the sony wh1000xm2 but that doesn't look like something that will fit a 4 year old well. Considering how they would be handled might not be a wise choice anyway. Any help appreciated.

    Not exactly appropriate for here, but RIP Cathedral de Notre Dame. She was a grand lady and one of the few structures that actually struck me with awe.

    What are you Grilling now?

    Stretch has the Elite. I have the Advantage. Like all pellet poppers the Memphis is great for low & slow cooking and for smoking. Not so great at grilling. The flame insert helps, but the other night when I made a steak it was put on at 225 to smoke it, wrapped in foil while the the Memphis heated to maximum temp, swapped in the flame insert and finished the steak. If you have time the Memphis can work for grilling, but there are better options. Another alternative is to have the Elite with natural gas grill. Have all your bases covered

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    I was on two panels but rejected both times by the defense attorney. I'm okay with that. Ran into him on the street after the last jury selection and he told me the reason he rejected me was I was too sure of myself and would influence the jury. I am okay with that as well.

    Condolences from my ice box to yours. Our temp this am was -2F. We have warmed to 0F. Current windchill -28F. Glad it was just a clogged intake. Easy fix :).

    What are you reading now?

    A Les Paul Gibson or Leo Fender Stratocaster? Book review is intriguing and I'll be adding "The Birth of Loud" to my reading list. How can any book that devotes an entire chapter to Jimi Hendrix's "Star Spangled Banner" not be good https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2019/01/how-electric-guitar-was-born/580969/?utm_content=edit-promo&utm_campaign=the-atlantic&utm_source=facebook&utm_term=2019-01-23T15%3A49%3A54&utm_medium=social&fbclid=IwAR1yRv227ZOCG2E0QNyGcFsWmjcLIAbv-eGkq6zaLfCd5hLKbqO6QlLDXL8&fbclid=IwAR3lV2czwFZHomp5jZX4zu6G6lbCL7al2S268e-BqwgdzT-HCq_SdaXei38

    RIP someone or another

    Just found out a friend of mine died 1/1/19. George Vuillemot was a good ole boy. Lived life his way and lived it to the fullest. 82 years young when he died. He was a bat boy for the Chicago Cubs and had several autographs. No doubt valuable but to him they were priceless memories. Raced cars on dirt tracks into his 70s. I met George when I needed a dog trainer. We developed a good and long lasting friendship. He trained the famous line of Smith English Setters for many years. Tough as nails and could out work me in his 60s even though there is a 16 year difference in our ages. Heart of gold. I'll have to look for the setter painting he gave me tonight as I have it stored away as a memory of him. I will toast George properly when I get home tonight. RIP in my friend. May all the dogs you run be Field Champions and may you win every race.
