- I've got to fix the side gate again. The latch broke and the kids are now trying to push the gate open from the back yard. Won't work, guys. I know it can't open in that direction, and that's why there's a big rock lying there, to prop it open.
- I remember several years ago hearing about how the internet was going to run out of space in 2010. There wouldn't be enough storage, etc., to keep up with the growing demand. That was supposed to happen last year. Did it happen and I missed it? Was the problem solved? Was it another scare?
- I got my main-gate badge at work today that allows me to take a shortcut on paved roads to the parking lot instead of going all the way down the side road and backtracking down a bumpy gravel road. I should save several hours per day and thousands in car washings. Not to mention damage to the suspension.
- They don't make my socks anymore. Or at least they came up with new packaging and are charging more. Are socks really that critical? Are they worth the price?
- Reflecting on my best car ever. A Honda Accord, 1990. I got 18 years and over 300,000 miles out of it. It was a rare 4-door/5-speed. I miss my clutch!
- There's a comedian on TV who is actually funny. Mrs. Scott is laughing hysterically. Yes, he really is that funny. I used to watch some of those stand up comedy shows. Not many comedians or comediennes really were that funny. Only a few. Some comedians say funny things and some are funny.
