    So, What Else Do You Collect ?

    I have a coworker that collects and repairs old tube radios, too. He also collects and repairs old jukeboxes.

    So, What Else Do You Collect ?

    I collect vintage computers, concentrating on Radio Shack/Tandy systems and CP/M systems (mostly the portables).

    Historic Bombers in Pictures

    Earlier this month I was in Springfield Ohio for an event. Several of us attending arrived Thursday night so we had Friday free so we met up for breakfast then drove over to the Air Force Museum in Dayton. I've wanted to go for a long time. The XB-70 in person was something I've always wanted to see in person. My father-in-law flew B-26 Marauders in WWII. We have his log books.

    My Kindle

    I have a Kindle Voyage. I had a Paperwhite and gave it to my wife. I've also bought Paperwhites for my Mother, nieces, and sisters-in-law. I download all my ebooks to my laptop and remove the DRM and use Calibre to organize them. That plus KU has really helped grow my library. I really wish they'd come out with a new backlit Kindle DX. I really liked the larger display.

    Hey Pepper, is this your Prius?

    Here's a video of one firing I found on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/xproductsllc/videos/336926880423967/UzpfSTIxODkzODEzMTQ3MDAxMToyMjAxNjA4Mzk5ODY5NjMx/?sk=h_chr Keep an eye on the wipers.

    Video proof the moon landings are fake...

    Stanley Kubrick was hired to fake the moon landing, but his perfectionism made them film it on location on the moon.

    Parking Tickets

    In the small town near where I grew up the state highway runs through town as its main street. There are parking meters along the street. Parking tickets on that street aren't valid and there's no penalty for not paying (side street parking tickets are, though). The funny thing is people that do know will generally feed the meters anyway. At the university I attended the campus police wrote parking tickets and the university enforced them by not allowing you to get your diploma or transcript when you graduated if there were unpaid tickets. It was common for graduating seniors to settle up before graduation. In the city I now live in people do park the wrong way on the side streets in the neighborhood and the police will only write tickets if there's a complaint.

    Car Vending Machine

    I pass by a Carvana on my drive to work depending on the route I take. I actually saw it in operation the other day.

    Halloween, the movie. Again

    I'd agree about "In the Mouth of Madness". If you like that one also check out "Prince of Darkness".
