as of now, 7-3 Pats, and a good stop on defense - sack, incomplete, and one of the patented toss to the scrimmage line on 3rd and long... I still don't get those plays.
|I';m expecting things to turn around (the wrong way, for Pats fans) in the second half for sure.
Of course, I'm torn here, since I do have Brady on my fantasy team...But as of right now my opponent is done, I still have Carr (QB) playing tomorrow. I'm down 15 points now, so if Brady can get a few more, I can pretty much count on Carr to pick me up.

Drove to Brookline yesterday, daughter's birthday, same day as wife's, had a nice visit. I don't remember the T being so damned quiet. Back when the wife lived in Brighton and Brookline, the screech of the T would wake the dead. Anyway, thought about all you eastern dwelling mooks as I drove back west in the rain last night. My early xmas gift to y'all.

OK, The Hell with the feelz good crap.

WTF is going on over there??!!

"...another new TikTok challenge has hit Massachusetts ...The challenge consists of loosening lug nuts on a vehicle, seeing what happens, and posting it on TikTok for likes... In addition to the lug nut challenge, TikTok has seen dangerous challenges such as the black out challenge, the fire challenge,, the Benadryl challenge, and the devious lick challenge. "

Someone over there needs to bust some heads.

Well, it is a sure way to sort out the really stupid ones.

They post themselves commiting a crime? ,,, if someone dies or gets injured, or even property damage,... Anyway, hope none of the victims get hurt...the perps,,,they are on their own.

I'm sorry, but the Sullivan clan ran themselves out of professional sports forever. Which is fine.
Henry may be the epitome of a disconnected elitist but he brought us their first championship in like forfrickenevah and a few more to boot :)

OK, you asked;

I don't know, ...unless you want to hear about what a pain it is to run a small business...year after year:

Ok; one of my trucks had starter failure on job early this week, got it home, put in new starter, and new (imported) (from you know where) starter failed (faulty solenoid) on my crew that was in the chappy ferry line, near end of day.

Almost got in truck w another maybe working starter, another solenoid, (remember, these are ex military, 24V, which don't grow on trees) & tools.

Then I remembered I was a grown up, and called the towing company. Their ramp truck can only get on & off chappy at high tide, so I had to wait until next day to get truck back. $236 plus driver tip well spent.

In other news, I'm enjoying the latest ale I just tapped into, and me & my gal had a nice sausage & veggie bake off, cooking in glass, in vintage corning ware. Almost always works out great.

Yea, I work for myself as well, but it’s not the only income stream fortunately. So yesterday when all my clients canceled it wasn’t stressful. I cannot recall a day in the past where all clients happened to cancel.

Vehicle trouble… I had that exactly a week ago. Distracted mommy rolled through a stop sign and didn’t look, or I unknowingly had my Klingon cloaking device in the on position. Both passenger side doors were smashed, and at the time of the low speed crash no one reported injuries. I drove my smashed sedan home about a mile and a half and covered the busted window and tops of doors that no longer sealed with a tarp and duct tape before it rained with some help from hubby. The rental car I’m using is pretty nice and the sonar is a nice safety addition… it lets one know when idiots are hanging in the blind spots.

Today, one of the LI HBCs held a Stein Brew. Fun time, good food, mostly good beverages, great people and a fire to keep warm.

Got to wonder about the car "sonar",... a late model suberu my gal just got from a deceased relative would not let her back out off shop slab, on account of a small branch the car could easily run over w no damage.

I get it, with the commercial with the "auto drive" saving the spaced out mom from backing over the neighbor's kid on a big wheel or whatever. Makes every one feel good, and rightly so.

However, how many times someone could not get out of sticky road situation, branch on road in snow etc, let alone an aggressor able to attack because car's "safety features" stopped the escape?

I know those options can be turned off, but could you do it when there was a fire or something near car? the stress and all.

Drove my 85 300D merced today, no chips or "brake by wire" there. ,, yes if your car has auto braking of any kind, then you have a few circuits between your brake pedal and you stopping. Brake by wire via a small number of molecules of silica on a chip. But that is OK, 'cause everything always works, right?

This model uses sounds and lights to warn, but it doesn’t brake or correct… at least that I’m aware of. And, yeah if it doesn’t know the difference between a toddler and stick it’s really not very helpful.
