    Happy Birthday Voltron!

    Thanks for the good tidings, my friends. Mellow day, lunch with an old friend, and dinner coming up with family and Mr Tice. Sisters in law are bringing home made biscuits and cocktails and Claire made a lovely chocolate poke cake. Good times.

    And...done! 30 minutes from opening the door. Thanks to G-Man and T-Money (sounds like a super hero duo) for the extremely accurate information and advice.

    Thanks Nate. It seems more palatable. RIP Dick

    Hey @Wmcmanus -- would you be opposed to changing the name of this thread to something softer like RIP Someone Or Other? Given that we use it for personal friends and family members, the original name is off-putting.

    I hope this is true. I just realized that my license expires this week and I received no notice or the usual extension. Corte Madera or Novato?

    It turned into a nail biter. I didn't get called up until the first round of peremptory challenges was done. They questioned us and selected the 12 jurors with the plaintiff passing the jury repeatedly. I was left as the first alternate, which would be the worst of all words because I have to sit through a two to three week trial and don't get to decide it unless somebody drops off. Plaintiff passed again with me as alternate, and defendant dinged the neurologist next to me because it is a traffic accident case with an alleged traumatic brain injury. The fucking plaintiff passed again but the defense finally dinged me. Thank goodness. This isn't the trial I would want for my first jury service and being an alternate would suck!

    Not mentioned. Just a racially diverse collection of American citizens talking about the wonderful jury experiences they had, the lifelong friends they made on the jury, and a judge explaining the majesty of the jury trial right.

    I'm sitting in the jury assembly room watching a video to teach me about the US justice system and jury trials. Interesting stuff.

    The analog thread.

    I have heard of books on tape or CD but never on vinyl. That sounds quite cumbersome...😎
